We first stayed (3 nights) at Abalonia Inn, Ogunquit, in late Sept, 2012. In 2013, we returned again for 3 nights, this time earlier, Sept 4-6. Asked for and got the same king-bed room that we had the first time we visited. It's one of their largest rooms and nice shower. If you're staying, check out rooms on web site. Some rooms are smaller, for less money, and one room has tiny shower stall. Jimmy, innkeeper, was great and friendly as usual. He sincerely remembered us, and greeted my wife a hug, which was very nice. Me, I like a handshake. The Inn (not a B&B, since the only breakfast offered is coffee and store-made muffins) is only a couple of minutes walk from the commercial centre of Ogunquit centre. There's a great coffee/bakery in town (just before the grocery/deli/wine store.) It's a take-out place with all kind of baked goods. Service is great. Pastries and things are delicious. Very little foot traffic in front of the Inn, which is about 75 feet back from the main thoroughfare/old highway. Walk to the public beach takes 5 minutes. Marginal Way Perkins Cove is so pleasant with benches along the way. We had a lunch at Lobster Shack in Perkins Cove after a 25 km (18 mile) bike ride along the coast east to Cape Neddick. No shoulder to ride on but cars/drivers were very considerate while going around us. My wife and I have Giant bikes (Roam XR2 and Rove) meant for road and off-road. We were on a road/bike trip, and Abalonia has some safe spot for us to lock them up and out of elements. Before Ogunquit, we spent 2 nights in Burlington, Vermont with friends and rode great trails there, and after Ogunquit we went to Mount Desert Island/Bar Harbor for Carriage Trails (will write in a separate review) for another 3 nights, before heading to Montreal, and then back to Toronto. We ate at Barnacle Billy's in Perkins Cove - great lobster and swordfish, nice view of the harbour. Walked back to Ogunquit along dark Marginal Way - had a small flashlight, it was fine. Also, ate at an Italian restaurant a few minutes north of Ogunquit - Angelina's. Jimmy, our innkeeper happily made us a reservation, which was a good idea, because it was packed on a Friday night. Food good, not as great as reviews suggested, and it was very loud, tables are jammed close together. Services was friendly and bit too fast. Parking lot was small and difficult to find a spot to park. We also ate at Lobster Pound restaurant, also a few minutes north of the Inn. Overrated, especially for the prices. Better food and prices at Barnacle Billy's in Perkins Cove.
On a rainy day, went shopping with our Canadian money to Portsmouth. Great outlet malls along the slower highway (#1, I think), Tommy Hilfiger, Columbia, and many more. Portsmouth has a Trader Joe's (Gosling Road), which is special for us from Canada. And, finally, breakfast one morning at Amore Restaurant, Perkins Cove. Very busy, so ate at take out area on the patio. Probably make the Maine bike trip again next year, and Abalonia provides all the comfort we need.

Room Tip: Rooms with king beds are bigger. Stayed one night in a room with a Queen bed, it was very small and shower was tiny. Quiet spot, though on main road. Our room has been on side overlooking small pool, and it's been quite.

We spent three nights during Columbus Day at Abalonia Inn. The service was perfect. Jimmy is a great owner and always ready to help. The room was not that big but the King Bed was really comfortable. Continental breakfast is fair (coffee, orange juice and muffins), but there are many restaurants in the area. The heated swimming pool was greatly appreciated as well as the exterior fireplace. Very well located. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights at Abalonia Inn in October 2013. We were in a King Room and had a private door leading from a small private deck into our room. The room was clean and comfortable. Stand-outs for us were the warm greeting and hospitality by the innkeeper, Jimmy. He also had some good suggestions for walks and restaurants.

Abalonia Inn is on a fairly busy road but our room was at the side of the Inn and was quiet overnight. It would have been better if the room had black-out curtains to keep the room dark after sunrise. The inn doesn't provide breakfast but offers coffee and muffins - a light "pre-breakfast". The inn is in close proximity to a number of restaurants and a wonderful bakery. We also found it to be in walking distance to the Ogunquit Playhouse (where we saw The Buddy Holly Story) and the trolley cars are fun, inexpensive and can get you quickly down to the village of Perkins Cove.

All in all, we had a couple of wonderful days/nights in Ogunquit and specifically at Abalonia Inn. We'd stay there again and recommend it to others.

This was the second year we stayed there. We also stayed last October. Jimmy and the crew are great folks and accommodated us VERY well. Nice room and great location! I would highly recommend Abalonia to ANYONE visiting Ogunquit.

This was our second stay at Abalonia, and it did not disappoint. Jimmy offered his usual warm welcome and showed us to a large, attractive room, where we immediately felt comfortable. Everything was clean as a whistle. To echo other comments on this site, we, too, had room 5, so there was some noise from the street, but it was minimal and after a short time, we didn't even notice it. And yes, that private entrance/porch was an added bonus. Finally, the location can't be beat.
