“Little slice of Heaven!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband surprised me with a little getaway for our 3rd wedding anniversary on June 26th. He took me to the Riverside Motel right on Perkins Cove! OMW it was beautiful! The room was SO clean! My husband works and I used to work in the travel industry so we can be quite picky about where we stay..,.(We have a bad habit of going over our room with a fine tooth comb.) We look at EVERYTHING! And let me tell you, The housekeeping stuff is AMAZING!! Our room was spotless!! Even our deck and the deck chairs were spotless! Thank you for the WONDERFUL stay!! We plan on coming back!

Geoff - We had another great stay at the Riverside from 6/6 to 6/9. Weather could have been better but we still enjoyed ourselves. Like many others,we cannot stress enough how clean the rooms are and how beautiful the grounds are. Your staff is wonderful and work very hard to keep everything immaculate. The continental breakfast is one of the best we have experienced. We look forward to visiting again next year.

We just stayed three nights at the Riverside and were delighted by the accommodations and the location. The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Th continental breakfast was especially good, the fresh doughnuts are to die for! The location is perfect. We loved walking over the footbridge to Perkins Cove. The grounds are perfectly manicured, it felt like we were in a postcard. We would definitely come back for another stay!

The Riverside Motel is a nice place to consider if you are looking for a quiet, low key option. The room was clean, and came with comfortable beds. Customer service was top notch - the receptionist was very nice. The continental breakfast is better than you'd think - though a typically limited selection the muffins and coffee were delicious!

One note - the walls a pretty thin! We could hear mumbled conversations from downstairs. But, luckily, there weren't many folks staying when we were there and I think this spot draws on the retired crowd, so this shouldn't be huge concern.

Recommendations: Not a place to go if you are looking for a pool, internet/office in the reception area, PPV movies, or any high frills amenities. But, the location is ideal. Perkins Cove is right outside your door and our "ocean view" offered at least a glimpse of the water. Not a big complaint however, as we spent most of our day wandering the area.

I think the Riverside Motel offers good value for an affordable cost.

Room Tip: Ask for a "Cove side" view.

Thank you skijumper_311 for reviewing the Riverside for T/A.
Our entire staff really appreciates your kind comments about our top notch service and especially our cleanliness, which is our number one goal.
Some guests prefer our 'Cove-view' rooms with their doors directly at lawn level downstairs, and some prefer the balcony level (Ocean view) which overlook the cove and the ocean. Because we are built into the hillside, our upper level balcony level rooms are directly at the parking lot level, so there are no stairways required for access, which is an important feature to many.
We are very happy that you found our complimentary continental breakfast enjoyable, and hope you visit us again real soon.
Thank you

On a trip through Northern New England, we planed on staying at Riverside for one night. Very easy check-in, all of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The view from our room/deck was one of the most picturesque we had ever seen. You're looking out over Perkins Cove loaded with Lobster boats mixed in with sail/power, with the Atlantic Ocean on the other side of the Cove. There is a footbridge leading to the shops and restaurants on the other side. We parked the car and did not need until we left. Great area to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Even though the weather was rainy during my two night stay, we had a fabulous time. The room was fantastic, beds were very comfortable and the view was amazing. Who would have thought we would have needed heat at the end of May but we did, it took no time for the room to warm up. The gleaming hardwood floors was a nice change of pace from the usual drab carpeting of most hotels. The continental breakfast was a nice way to get us going in the morning. The proximity to Marginal way was a key to staying at this property, we did get soaked but it was a beautiful walk. The owner was very helpful and courteous. Check in and check out were a breeze and took no time at all. We will definitely be back in the future (hopefully during better weather).

Thank you Kevin M for reviewing the Riverside for the T/A community.
We appreciate your kind comments. Half of our property has carpets, half have the wood floors. Some of our guests have a preference on the floors, but one thing they all agree on is the amazing view at Perkins Cove, come rain or shine.
We look forward to your next getaway!

Thank you cindypj for sharing your visit with T/A.
Our entire staff appreciates you mentioning the cleanliness of our property. This may be a good time to remind people that rates for our rooms with a Queen size bed range from only 109/nt offseason, to only 199/nt in the peak of summer.
We also may be the only waterfront property in Ogunquit Maine without a prescribed minimum stay requirement. Last year guests were able to reserve a one-night stay on almost every night of our season.
Thank you,
