I don't know why I was surprised. This is the 3rd year in a row that we have stayed in Maine at one of these properties, depending on our needs at the time. We have visited in May, June and August. All three facilities have been spotless, with beautiful manicured grounds, helpful and friendly staff, comfortable rooms, great locations and more than adequate continental breakfasts. Though Gorges Grant has an amazing breakfast! In the years to come, we will most definitely stay at one of these locations. Nice to know we have some place to depend on.

Check in was very smooth and pleasant. The room was large and comfortable. Both the room and the bathroom very very clean. The pool area was well maintained as well as the resto of the property. The breakfast was a nice bonus. The staff was very professional and made the stay here a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Will definately come back

So glad we chose The Milestone for our 3 night stay in Ogunquit. From the time we checked in to checkout, we had no complaints. The staff is very friendly and helpful....Our rooms were CLEAN and comfortable. The pool area and jacuzzi were also very well maintained, along with the rest of the property. The breakfast offers a small variety of options....bagels, bread, muffins, fruit, oatmeal and cereal ( and kept very clean). Within walking distance are a variety of restaurants and it is a short walk to the beach. Nearby is Perkins Cove, Wells, Kennenbunk, Cape Neddick and Portland. We would definitely stay again.

For a quick unplanned get-a-way during the height of leaf peeper season The Milestone was an extremely affordable and pleasant choice. Considering the in-season rates still applying to the Ogunquit/Kennebunkport areas, this was a exceptional value for a very very competitive price.

We had a queen size bed room in one of the front buildings, the room was very spacious, with a over-sized counter refer and ample counter space. Table and two living room style chairs, large desk and bureau. Large flat screen TV, updated furnishings, flooring and a good size bath. Property is extremely clean, rooms are spotless. Housekeeping was excellent.

A continental breakfast is offered (coffee, bagels, muffins and the like) but there are too many local breakfast places to enjoy - so we didn't partake. The property itself is large with multiple buildings, all with ample front door parking and your own provate entrance/porch/chairs to sit in outside. This would be a good summer location also due to it's proximity to Footbridge Beach which the road to is practically across the street. Good size outdoor pool also for those that don't the like bone chilling waters of the Maine Coast!

It is in a good location to go south to the charming town of Ogunquit with all it's shops, restaurant choices and coastal strolling. A quick 20 minute ride to the shopping outlets of Kittery, or in the opposite direction to quaint Kennebunkport. Good access to Maine Turnpike (approx 1 mile) - and plenty of antique shopping all along RT 1 (in both directions - York to Wells).

There are also many good local restaurants within walking distance of this property, or many, many within minutes in either direction. From diners to white table cloth it can be found here. This is a great area no matter the season, a charming section of the New England coast. Fun to explore all the local shops, walk the beautiful town beaches, enjoy some good food, wine and local craft brews.

The Milestone is a excellent value, clean and spacious in a beautiful section of the Maine coast which has a lot to offer.

We were on our way through town and wanted to spend overnight in Ogunquit. It was Columbus Day weekend most of the "in town" hotels did not have single night availability.
We found the Milestone and they are only a short mile out of the towns edge. Check in was a breeze, once in the room we both noticed a very slight odor. I wasn't able to put my finger on it completely but it really wasn't offensive, just kind of odd. Any way it was not enough to ask for another room, just an observation. Everything was clean and in order. The bed was not the plushest thing in the world but for a quick overnight stay it was alright. Check out was also very easy.
If you are looking for a basic, no frills place to stay I'd recommend the Milestone.

We have stayed all over Ogunquit over the years. Although I like being on the beach, the Milestone is beautifully landscaped, has a heated pool, is super clean and only a short walk to Footbridge beach. The trolley stops right in front of the property and you can get a quick lift to Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way, the main beach or even Footbridge beach. It is a great value and you can see the ocean, horizon and sunrise from many of the rooms. Have dinner at Mike's Clam Shack - the lobster stew is out of this world!

We recently spent 2 nights at the Milestone in Ogunquit, Maine. We booked this vacation late, so we did not have a huge selection of places to choose from as we wanted 2 rooms with 2 beds in each room. We were delighted with the Milestone. I had viewed the pictures on their website and checked the TripAdvisor reviews. We knew that the motel had several buildings, had a trolley stop directly in front of the motel and served a Continental Breakfast. However, we were pleasantly surprised to discover the following: the motel is a 10 minute walk to Footbridge Beach with a drop off area should you want to drop off some of your party with all of the beach gear (saves on parking fee); the motel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful; rooms were quite clean with a mini refrigerator in each room (Though, rugs and bedspreads were a bit tired); the clientele which were there at the same time were friendly (lots of families and couples); the pool area was very clean;, and there were several restaurants within short walking distance of the motel.
