Clean, affordable and a nice place to stay. Great location -- walk into town. Oqunquit had their Octoberfest, which was fun.

The Studio East Motel is well established and well located in "downtown" Ogunquit, ME. The clientele is a mix of French Canadians and Americans. We stayed a few nights in July. Our room consisted of a recent kitchenette (equipped with a bathroom sink...), a queen bed and a shower only washroom. The room was bland, dated and the mattress uncomfortable; but everything was clean. Insulation was non existing as we could hear our neighbours above and beside. The recently remodeled jaccuzi sits in the shade most of the day and was lukewarm with the surrounding patio not kept clean.

I found this place doing a search for places to stay when we visited my brother in Ogunquit. Their prices are very reasonable, even during the main season and I intend to book many more stays there.

The staff was very helpful and even accomdiated our late night arrival with keys and directions to our room left where we could find them.

The room was very comfortable, since we went in december the main motel rooms were closed and we got one of the front suites for a very very reasonable price and my parents (i paid as their xmas present) were very pleased. The rooms were clean, and well laid out.

In short we will deffinaely stay there agian and i highly recomend it to others travelling to the area.

i Loved the White Guest House...clean & helpful friendly owners.
Everyone who works there is so helpful.
The property is well taken care of & there is a nice Hot Tub/pool by the motel part in the back.

I give Studio East a 5***** star.

Stayed August 2006

This was my first time to Ogunquit and I choose this hotel very blindly. I didn't think it was that great of a deal for what you got. We had the unfortunate luck of being stuck way at the top (3rd floor) of the back of the main building. We thought their was only the motel section, but they have converted some of the main house to rooms. It was a real unpleasant chore schlepping our bags up three flights of very unsturdy stairs. It was scary experience going to/from the room on the poorly constructed fiberglass stairs. The stairs would move and the railing outside our room could easily be pulled from it's sockets. I can't imagine if you were a heavier person how scary it would be. We were also subject to direct sunlight all day (no overhang) and a huge street light above the door which made it impossible to sit outside at anytime unless you wanted to be burnt to a crisp or consummed by the bugs attracted that were drawn to the light at nightime. The continental breakfast was useless as was the staff. Combine that with the largely snooty and unfriendly clientele and it made for a less than pleasant experience. We checked out early and left despite being billed for the entire stay. You live and learn. It does have a good location, but it is NOT walking distance to the beach if you are carrying food, towels, etc. Better to drive there. Overall I would not return to Studio East and would not return to Ogunquit.

Very clean, great price and centrally located. Our room had a small kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and sink (dishes, utensils, toaster and coffee pot were also included).

It's a quick walk to shops & beach. Perkin's Cove is also an easy walk, if you're so inclined. The motel is pet friendly too!

The only problem we experienced was the noise from the upstairs guests. The floors are not very well insulated and we could hear every single step the guests were taking upstairs-- this is a problem since they went to bed well after midnight and we like to wake up at 6:00 a.m. My advice: request an upstairs room!

Studio East is a nice clean, no frills motel with a friendly atmosphere at an affordable price. It is conveniently located within a 1-10 minute walking distance from almost anything in the center of town as well as the beach.
