This past weekend we met friends in Maine for a long weekend. We live in Massachusetts and they live in Vermont. We met in Kittery for a nice lunch & then headed north on Route 1 in search of a reasonable motel for the night. We found a great little motel a 1/2 mile north of the Village of Ogunquit. We stopped there because of the $49 per couple sign. When we went in to get a room, we found that price was for a room with 2 queen beds. Our preference would be for rooms with a King Size bed. For another $6.00 per room we got the rooms we wanted. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The rooms were average in size for this type of motel, but very clean and had a small refrigerator and microwave in each room. The beds were very comfortable. The sink and hair dryer were outside of the bathroom, but that actually works out nicely if one person is showering & the other wants to brush their teeth & dry their hair, etc., at the same time.
This is a very compact motel. Two buildings facing each other with a pool in between. Porches run the length of each building, with chairs & tables outside each room. Very friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The staff is very nice-the owner extremely personable & willing to help with anything you might need. It's obvious she has taken great care to make sure the motel is well-maintained. She told us that she & her parents owned it together for many years & then she took over as sole-owner a few years ago.
We were so impressed with our first night's stay, that we stayed the 2nd night there. We originally thought we'd move on & find a different place to stay the 2nd night, but decided to use this as our 'base' while we traveled the southern Maine coast for our long weekend getaway.
We would all recommend this comfortable & very clean motel to anyone wanting a cozy place to relax & enjoy the Ogunquit area.
