My family and I have stayed at the Milestone on countless occasions over the last 15 years. We have never once been disappointed. The grounds are lovely, the pool clean, the front desk courteous and helpful and best of all, the rooms are immaculate! I have been to establishments that are supposedly "FOUR STAR" and The Milestone would put them to shame. Just a great place all around and in a wonderful location.

Our family of 4 stayed at the Milestone one night on our way to Acadia National Park. It was very clean and well run. We loved sending (free) e-mail postcards to our friends. The pool was very nice and uncrowded. The donuts at breakfast were delicious. The breakfast was constantly being replenished. The hotel itself was a quiet retreat. We enjoyed the Ogunquit shops and beaches. Be sure to walk the Marginal Way path. It is well worth it! I would definitely stay here again.

We thought and still think the Milestone Motel is the nicest motel we’ve visited. My husband stays in mostly 4* hotels for business and rated the Milestone very highly.

Our room was excellent – it couldn’t be faulted in terms of cleanliness and furnishings. The fridge, coffeemaker and complimentary toiletries were all as good, if not better, than the 4* hotels we visited.
We recommend the rooms on the top row, as we had, as we think the view is prettier, but any room would probably be acceptable as the grounds are so nicely landscaped. The top floor, however, is also further from the main road that runs directly in front of the motel (handy for a couple of restaurants and the trolley stop) and we heard no traffic noise at all.

Our king bed was extremely comfortable and the housekeeping service was excellent –friendly staff and everything was spotless for all four days we were there.

Our breakfast was better than anticipated, with several cereals and different doughnuts and muffins. There were various coffees, teas and cocoa sachets. There was also a smallish jug of milk, which wasn’t enough. It needed refilling constantly, two would be better.
Although two tables were squeezed into the breakfast area, we found it nicer to enjoy our breakfast in our room, watching the birds landing on the railings outside. I saw a beautiful red bird that disappeared before I could get my camera. Wish I knew what it was.

We didn’t use the pool but it was larger than most pools we saw in New England and looked to be very well maintained.

We like walking. We loved the walk along the beach into town and it didn’t take us long. Yes, there’s a walk to the beach first but as foreigner tourists, we loved walking past the type of houses we’d only seen on `Murder, She Wrote´. It was a highlight for us! If you like walking, you’ll be fine. If you don’t, The Milestone is a short drive or trolley ride into town.

We liked Ogunquit, we liked Maine, we liked The Milestone – we hope to be back VERY soon.

Our family of 4 enjoyed ajoining rooms while we celebrated our daughter's college graduation. For the price (ask for the AAA discount) these rooms were everything we needed. Comfortable beds, 'fridge, clean, well maintained, and even had Bath & Body complitmentary bath items. We've stayed in Ogunquit 4 times and at every type and price range. This is where I'd return. We picked it based on this site's reviews.

We have just returned from a weekend break in Ogunquit, and were fortunate enough to stay at The Milestone. From the moment we arrived, the Staff were courteous, very friendly, and helpful. The rooms were immaculate, really clean, and comfortable. Bathrooms were spotless, many little extras to provide guests with every amenity, including, complimentary continental breakfast. We would certainly stay here again, and cannot recommend The Milestone highly enough. EXCELLENT!!

One of our favourite places to stay in Ogunquit is the Milestone...it is a lovely property and we have found the rooms very clean, the staff very accommodating...and always enjoy that "coming home" feeling when we arrive. We understand there have been recent renovations which sound very appealing. You will enjoy your time there!!

We have frrequented the Ogunquit area in the past but never have stayed at the Milestone, on the spare of the moment we decided to take a few days and go to the ocean. The Milestone had the perfect room that sat high on the well manicured property. Accomodations were great and the price was very reasonable.
