I have stayed at least ten different motels in the Ogunquit/Wells area over the past few years. This falls pretty low compared to what the area has to offer. My first room stunk so bad i asked to be moved. The second room didn't quite smell as bad as the first. The 2 young people at the desk said they would have something done about room #1, but the next thing i knew there was an elderly couple in it. The location is good if you want to walk to the beach. I also picked the week of the fourth of July to stay here. The area was mobbed. Live and learn.

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at The Milestone. I only wish you had offered us the opportunity to address your concerns in July, rather than waiting until March of the following year to voice your displeasure. It does appear that you were given a different room after your initial concern, and we were not made aware of any further concerns at that point. We always strive to ensure that your stay with us is satisfactory and our rooms are clean, well maintained and meet all expectations. We exhaust all available resources to correct an existing problem or concern. We hope that you may consider us in the future, perhaps a different area of our property or a less crowded time of the year in Ogunquit. We are very proud of our offering and would love to add you to our ever growing list of happy, repeat guests in the future. Have a nice day and thank you for your feedback.

Last year when visiting Oginquit, ME, we stayed at a lovely hotel Gorges Grant . We heard they had a 'sister' hotel down the road. We looked it up when planning our trip this year. It is very nice, price is really good and we get a little breakfast with this place.

Well, there's not much of a choice due to a long holiday weekend and it was fine for a small town motel. I just wished they upgrade their beds. My back was hurting all throughout our stay there. All in all it wasn't that bad but it wasn't that good either. I missed the continental breakfast so I couldn't say anything about it. The staff are always available, polite and courteous.

This hotel is located a short distance from beach and town. Convinently located. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Decent value. Staff was friendly and helpful. Grounds nicely manicured. Would frequent again.

The minuses would be that the bed pillows were so small & soft, you had to use muliples....And, the towels were very thin (sometimes, clean still felt damp)!! IMHO, the Milestone could use some updating.

The personnel were always very pleasant, helpful & professional.

Room Tip: The Milestone is built on a hill & there were different 'levels' of room locations....so...

From check in to check out, we felt like home.
Pro's - pool, hot tub, fitness center were clean. continental breakfast was a plus with many basic choices. Walking north there are 3-4 restaurants and 2-3 ice scream places within 1 mile north.

Con's- they say 1/4 mile/10 minute walk from the beach, while i didnt check the distance, i would say more like 1/2 mile, 20 minute walk. Distance from town, about a 1 hour walk, but you can take the trolly.

Ogunquit in general appeals to the couples, mostly older, then younger. Our hotel, at least during our weekend in August had maybe 3 or 4 families with kids. So if you are a family with kids under 14, and having other children around interests your kids, i would recommend another hotel

We went to The Milestone during Labour Day with our two daughters, a 4-year old and 1-year old. The hotel met our needs with a good room, good continental breakfast, and a good location. The hotel arranged to add a crib to the room which was great. They also had plenty of towels as well. We arrived late and they had a process for checking us in at the late hour. The hotel is close to the beach (about a 10-minute walk) but not the closest to the town center so we had to drive or take the trolley (the trolley stop is almost in front of the hotel). The pool and the jacuzzi are GREAT and my daughter loved it. The rooms are clean, functional, and comfortable, not on the fancy side though. Overall a good experience.
