“"Desserts and coffee await arrival"”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This motel was buzzing with activity so we knew we had found a winner, especially when Shirley had brownies and hot coffee awaiting guests on that cool, rainy night. Despite a phone ringing off the hook, she gave us all the time we needed to learn where to catch the shuttle that would deliver us just down the road to Ogunquit, etc. Our room was immaculate, Wi-Fi worked immediately, our bed and pillows were perfect, and we even enjoyed breakfast. Would definitely return.

My wife and I stayed at the Sea View Motel in Ogunquit over the Columbus Day Holiday. The motel was very clean and the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The only complaint that we found was the the rooms are definitely dated. The location was excellent and close to walk to the shops and town center. We recommend the motel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor if stairs are an issue as there is no elevator

We took advantage of the off season rates and stayed three nights at the sea view motel. Our room was immaculate, the wifi worked great and we will be definitely staying here again. The staff has been most helpful in suggesting eating places and attractions and the provided breakfast was substantial.

Room Tip: We chose a double room and it was spacious.

Very friendly staff and quite helpful. Nice room and bathroom. Had a king bed. Sink outside the shower/toilet area. Good shower pressure. Not too far from downtown Ogunquit. I would definitely return.

We stayed in this very clean hotel for 3 nights. The bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean, the desk staff was very accommodating. The value was very good for something so close to the village. A complimentary Continental Breakfast is available in the office. Coffee was very good, assorted cereals, pastry, yogurt, apples, boiled eggs were available.

Room Tip: choose a second floor where you won't have to listen to the footsteps of those above you. Stair...

We booked a king size room at this hotel for 3 nights based solely on the reviews from Trip Advisor. We usually stay at another motel when we travel to Ogunquit but we decided to give this a try because of it's close proximity to town.
We arrived a little bit early and the woman at the desk was very friendly- instead of shooing us away, she had someone go and check to see if the girls were done cleaning the room. Within a few minutes she called to let her know that the room was ready. We had a room in the smaller part of the hotel which were the garden view rooms. The rooms were immaculately clean (they even vaccuum the outdoor carpet outside the room), had a mini fridge, microwave, plenty of towels, a comfortable bed, and even a bowl of mints (which was a nice touch).Breakfast In the morning was ample- cereal, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, juice, coffee, hard boiled eggs, and yogurt.
Some reviews complain that the walls are thin- you can hear your neighbors if they are making louder than usual noise but most of the motels in the area have the same issue. I have no complaints and would definitely stay there again. It was a great value, the staff was friendly, and you are within walking distance of a few restaurants and the Shore Rd area.

Thank you very much. I see you decided to try us based upon other Trip Advisor reviews and I can tell by your awesome review we met all your expectations and in some cases our little extras impressed you too. It's the little things that make a difference, they may be subtle on their own, but when combined they make for a great vacation! Thanks again, JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

When searching for a hotel, I wanted one that would be comfortable, but close to the main drag. Lucky for me, my father ended up recommending the Sea View Motel, and I am really glad he did! Upon checking in, my girlfriend and I were greeted by a wonderfully nice hostess who joked around with the guests, and made people feel very much at home. Stayed two nights, and on the second night met the owner, who was incredibly kind as well. This hotel will not disappoint! With clean rooms, comfortable beds, very helpful and kind stuff, you can't ask for a better place to spend your "paradise by the sea" days!!

Room Tip: Any room in this hotel is great!! My S.O. and I stayed in the "garden style" room, and it...
