Certificate of Excellence

If you go for the beach, it is an A+ ,and I am sure that you pick-up this Hotel for its situation.
Yes it is a bit tired on the Deco- side but if you select the studios on the river side , you are all set to to everytjhing you need to do en Ogunquit; you are 2 ssteps away from the best bakery and coffee place; they could prepare your lunch , so at night you can explore the marginal way;
it is also clean and reception is very accomadating. ENJOY

Room Tip: avoid the rooms on the street side; noise from cars and walkers.

This is the 2nd time that I have stayed at the Aspinquid. Although the rooms need to be updated, i.e. flat screen Tv, etc....the ladies at the front desk @ the Aspinquid are all great. They were friendly, courteous and extremely accommodating when we needed an extra parking space for the weekend. I have stayed at many different places in Ogunquit....but the service alone is a great reason to come back to the Aspinquid.

We have stayed in the Aspinquid for 20+ years. The location is spectacular. However the hotel has taken a major turn for the worse since it was acquired by the current corporate owners. While the hotel has made some improvements such as the new exercise room, the hotel rooms are essentially unchanged in 20 years. The hotel uses young and inexperienced staff to clean (not well) the rooms. The hallway entrances have become cluttered w beach equipment which is deposited by guests at night. The hotel has allowed the beautiful pond where Mrs. Andrews kept her goldfish to dry up. Apparently the new owners are more interested in the bottom line than running a class resort hotel. After 20+ years, we will sadly look for a different hotel next summer. We first came to the Aspinquid when our three kids were little. We hope that the new owners will take the time to read this. It is ashame how such a wonderful hotel in such a beautiful setting has been ruined.

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your opinion on tripadvisor. We are sorry that you are a frustrated return guest. We have spent thousands of dollars on deferred maintenance issues since our purchase in 2011. Contrary to your understanding, we are a family owned hotel company with over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry. In addition to the fitness room which you have mentioned, we renovated 12 guest rooms this past year in the Main Building. The property definitely needs work but we are committed to making the Aspinquid better each year. Also, the pond developed a tear in the liner which is why it is not currently operating - it will be repaired. If there was a particular issue with our housekeeping staff, we do hope that the matter was brought to our attention for immediate corrective action. We are sorry if guests left their personal beach belongings in the corridor and we hope that you notified us if there were any particular safety issues involved. Thank you again for your business and review. We are here to help you enjoy your vacation and if you choose to visit us again - we hope that you allow our staff to assist you in doing just that.

Beautiful grounds and exterior, nice staff, great balconies and unbeatable location, right at the beach. However, the rooms are not up to par with other comparable places in Ogunquit (and I've stayed in almost all of them). The stairwell of our building smelled moldy. Although clean and supposedly updated, the rooms should be a lot more luxurious for the price. The sink and counter were ridiculous, I have never, ever seen anything like that in Ogunquit. It would be so simple to get the rooms where they need to be and not that expensive: pictures on the walls, dining chairs that are not from 1980 and with holes in the caning, decent bedding, matching curtains, tasteful paint colors (how about beige walls with WHITE trim instead of flesh colored trim?). If these basic steps were taken the owners could charge even more for the rooms. Despite the proximity to the beach, I would be very reluctant to stay here again. What a shame.

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.
