Yellow Monkey Guest Houses & Motel
Ranked #24 of 26 Ogunquit B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 22, 2006

Old, dirty, depressing, tiny rooms. Rooms and hallways stunk to high heaven. Dirty towels that were too small and thin to dry off much of anything, let alone a human being. Mustache trimmings all over the bathroom from a prior guest. Location was the ONLY thing going for this place. If you hate someone, you should recommend they stay here...but be sure you REALLY hate them. Don't stay here. Seriously.

My mom and I just stayed here for a night last week. The sign and the exterior looked attractive. The clientele seemed fine. Then, behold the dimly lit, strangely decorated room with appliances from the mid-60s, a ceiling-mounted television so small you can't see it from the bed, and cold, clammy sheets to climb into at night. Also, when we arrived in the office and inquired about availability, we realized it was sketchy and asked if we could see the room first. The guy showed us the room and stayed with us while we decided, trying to sell us on the many ammenities. We were trapped, and could not easily say no. We opted out of the breakfast, which was served in a scary little kitchen in the main building. The strung-out crowd eating old danish in a dark room covered in linoleum was too depressing, and we paid the extra money to go elsewhere for breakfast. Now, when a place/restaurant/activity turns out to be much worse than we expect, we refer to it as a "yellow monkey."

Typical gay owners screwing the gay community. The owners charge premium rates and the place is dirty and compltely run down. The towels had old blood stains on them, the carpet in the room was gross, the bath mat outside of the shower was great when it was purchased about 10 years ago. The sheets on the bed were old and gross and the air conditioning in the room ( window unit ) never cooled the place off.

The Yellow Monkey charges the same rate as the completely renovation " 2V " ( 2 village square ) right down the road. We took a tour of the "2v" and it looks like a miniture 5 stars hotel.

I would never ever stay in the Yellow Money again as it is a complete and total dump.

The owners would be best served to sell the place and let someone purchase it who will renovate it.

It was awful !
