Aspinquid at Norseman Resort
Ranked #18 of 36 Hotels in Ogunquit
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 14, 2013

To all the skeptics, the Aspinquid may not look fabulous when strolling down Beach St towards the Main Beach, but once you give it a shot, you find it is the little engine that could. Led by the fantastically sweet Beverly and Wendy at the front desk reception, right of the bat they have an excellent customer service team here with these two gals. We were a walk in and given immediate and prompt attention and given a couple of options for accomadations ranging from a standard efficiency to a more roomy apartment. We chose a standard efficiency and were checked in in mere minutes. The rooms are not fancy but simple clean and comfortable. Each has a deck of its own and it was enjoyable to enjoy the views of the ocean from it.
The property consists of three buildings of hotel rooms, a garden area, fenced in in ground pool, new exercise room, tennis court and what is undeniably the best location in town. It is perfectly situated in the middle of downtown and the beach. The trolley is convienient to take to Perkins Cove.
We must say that the Aspinquid has all it's bases covered. The gals at the front desk are delighted you are there and although at both our check in and check out were at busy times, we received service with a smile from Wendy and Beverly and promised them we would come back. This hotel is soon to lose it's little engine that could status and move into locomotive territory! It deserves a great review!

We had a wonderful stay at the Aspinquid! There is nothing fancy about the rooms but they are nicely maintained, clean, there is a kitchenette and a balcony. What more would one need? The location of the hotel is perfect, right on the same road as the Main Beach so it's convenient to leave the car parked at the hotel and just gather things needed for a day at the beach and walk down within minutes. The day we arrived, it was much earlier than check in time but the front desk person gave me my parking placket so that we could leave the car and head off to the beach. On our check out day, I went to return the room key and told Wendy what a wonderful stay we had. She said "you are leaving the car here while going to the beach right?" I was pleasantly surprised that it was okay to leave the car, otherwise it would have cost $25 to park. She also told me that after leaving the beach it was okay to head back to the hotel and use the showers downstairs which are equipped with soaps/shampoo/conditioner and hair dryer. That way we could travel home already showered. This is what I call great customer service!

Room Tip: We didn't request any specific type of room. Ours happened to be on the top floor and faced the...

Staying here tonight totally for the by-the-beach location and not for this dumpy worn out facility and bland room. It seems like the only thing updated in the last 25 years is their sparkling and tasteful sign which screams "must be a nice place" but when walk into the lobby, you stop, look around, and you're like "what the hell"??? I was too tired to go on shopping so I blew the money and stayed. The place must be a cash machine given the extreme lack of updating. The staff person was really sweet. I hope they are taking good care of her. Though I just saw her running out the door with a plunger.

On a very hot July day I arrived at the Aspinquid Resort. Not only was the room newly renovated, but I had a great view of all the beach goers walking towards the ocean. I love to people watch. And the air conditioning was the best. You can't go wrong here since you practically can roll onto the beach in seconds.

Room Tip: Ask to view the ocean from your balcony or the river side...both are great!

After carefully reading the recent reviews, I have to say I agree! Great location, clean comfortable rooms, beautiful landscaping, and a heated pool which is surrounded by flowers.
A two minute walk in either direction will take you to the ocean and river or to the down town. Ogunquit is perhaps one of the most quaint towns in southern Maine, and this hotel is in a fantastic location to enjoy all of it! We stayed in a room that had been renovated over their closure during the winter months. We were pleased with the decor and neat kitchenette! Wendy took our reservation on the phone and took time to answer all of our questions. The only problem we encountered during our stay was during check in. We could not find the young girl, Megan, who was on duty. We finally located her leaving one of the hotel rooms near the office with her dinner. Other than that, we recommend the Aspinquid for a great stay. We will return!

There is zero effort put into this hotel. We stayed in the Summer building. Generally, I would not take issue or factor in the color of the room when making a judgement, but the rooms are stark white. From the ceiling, walls, doors, bathroom, everything is pure white making the room feel very institutional and cold. There is nothing warm about the rooms at all. Not a single piece of decor. If I am staying in a hotel for 4 nights, I at least want it to feel warm and cozy, this did not at all. There are no clocks in any of the rooms, not even the standard digital clock on the nightstand. Underneath the bathroom sink is completely exposed, piping and all. And the piping is rusty which does not promote a very clean feeling. There were no bath towels so my husband had to go up to the office to get some. A were a couple of positives about the place. First off, the location is great. It is about a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. That being said, most of the main hotels on Shore Rd. are no more than a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. The outdoor pool is very nice and heated. And the air conditioners in the room work very well. We had a few 90 degree days and with our A/C unit blasting, we maintained a VERY cool and comfortable room temperature. We would not stay here again, it was not a very good experience.

Thank you for staying at the Aspinquid at Norseman Resort and sharing your opinions. We apologize for your stay being less than enjoyable due to your room décor. We have owned the Aspinquid for 3 years and have spent several thousand dollars on improvements and upgrades. The Summer Building will be worked on in the near future. However, the rooms are clean and well maintained. I apologize for the lack of bath towels in your room and have spoken to housekeeping about the matter. I will also have maintenance investigate the pipes under the sink that you mentioned.. We have renovated 12 rooms in the Main Building in 2013 and plan on continuing to make the property better each year. It would be our pleasure to have youstay at the Aspinquid at Norseman Resort and experience one of our renovated rooms the next time you visit Ogunquit.

I would really like to encourage you to stay at the Aspinquid. Location is amazing day time at beach and nite time down town, all with feet from the Aspinquid. Meaghan, Beverly, and Wendy are amazing. The kitchenette was perfect for a family of four. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The Aspinquid is close to everything in Ogunquit. We stayed for the 4th of July and guess what, no need to fight traffic for the fireworks display, they were right oustide the front door! My children loved having the pool and beach available. We even used the grill, laundry, and weight room.
