“Great location, very clean, but very noisy”
Reviewed August 31, 2005

We we so looking forward to staying at the Aspinquid after walking past it many times on our last trip to Ogunquit. The proximity to the beach and the private balconies really enticed us. The rooms are very clean, however, very noisy. We could hear people in the next room clanging their dishes and opening and closing the patio door. We had to keep the air conditioning turned on to tune out the noise of cars and people passing on the streeet. Accommodations are basic and have not been renovated in quite some time. There are no black out shades in the room, only venitian and vertical blinds. The room is very brightly lit at night from the hotel's outside security lights, and very early in the morning from the sunlight. The combination of the noise and light did not allow much restful sleep.

We stayed in the front of the building closest to the beach on the second floor. I don't think the back of the building would be any better as the parking lot is there and has very bright security lights.

Another issue was security. The room door only has a toggle lock and key system and the doors are paper thin. You hear everyone who walks past the room in the corridor. The door leading from the street into the corridor was seldom locked.

I would only stay there again if they improved the soundproofing and did something to keep some light out of the rooms at night.

My family has stayed at this family run resort for 12 years. The location on Beach Street, right at the edge of the bridge to the main beach, can't be beat! In 5 minutes we are either at the beach or in the center of town. We get the one bedroom suite with a full kitchen including microwave. Each unit has a big balcony with a view of the tidal river and Ogunquit Beach. The beautiful grounds include a tranquil reading area near a lily pond, a tennis court, and a spacious outdoor pool. A hottub is also available in the basement of the main building. The staff is very attentive, with great suggestions on restaurants or activities in town, and the rooms and grounds are very well maintained. This facility looks like a private condo complex from the street -- it definitely does not have a "motel" feel.
