The Blue Full Moon was this month and the view from the Terrace was spectacular. Hotel was worth the cost. View is of the ocean and tidal river. Quick walk to both marginal way and beach. Lawn and flowers are beautiful. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was great for my parents generation for for foodies in their 30's, this lacked gluten free, local and variation. THis is my only gripe. Loved this place and will stay again.

We have been staying at the Terrace for several years. It is located right by the ocean and has many very nice features including an extra good continental breakfast which can be eaten on the porch overlooking the ocean or in the lovely common room adjoining the porch.
Not all the rooms are equal and some do not have any ocean views. From their literature it is easy to see which rooms have views and which do not. We found the rooms in the older Inn building are small while the rooms in the unattached motel type unit can have a nice ocean view depending on their location. Those rooms are spacious and clean and the rooms on the second floor even have a separate loft area with an additional queen bed, although only one bathroom on the main floor.
Our favorite location here, which is often not available, is one of the four rooms in a separate front building directly overlooking the ocean. These rooms have the additional extra of a small stove where one can cook if desired.
All in all, the Terrace is a lovely place to stay.

We got married on the lawn at Terrace By the Sea in August and it was perfect! Beautiful view and great service from the hotel. They set up everything for us and it looked great. Thank you to Sergio, Nico, Darlene and everyone else who helped out on our special day, and thank you to the wonderful guests who helped out with details and pictures. We can't wait to visit again.

The Terrace has a perfect location and is close to the center of town shopping and restaurants. Even just relaxing there on the premises is a treat. Such a calm and pleasurable experience! Nice pool and very friendly guests. Loved dealing with the manager, Nick. An excellent choice.

What a beautiful location this hotel has. Our room overlooked the beach and we were able to watch the sunrise from our bed. At night we could hear the waves splashing along the beach. Just so relaxing. Service was also excellent and location. The breakfast was okay but nothing really special.

The Terrace is the place to stay in Ogunquit, but this visit was pretty expensive for 2 people. The room was clean but the beds (seems to be in all the rooms) are lumpy and soft. I stay there many times, going back in late August, and found the workers to be excellent.
