Betty Doon Hotel
Ranked #34 of 36 Hotels in Ogunquit
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This small hotel is in a perfect location almost on the corner of the main intersection. You can easily walk to all restaurants, bars, shops and the beach. The Betty Doon has a large parking lot with assigned spots. Check-in was simple and the room was ready early. We were in Room # 1 which was so cute! It was super clean with 2 comfortable double beds with patchwork quilts. Lots of windows with shades and very pretty valances. It had an air conditioner and a wall heater and a refrigerator. The bathroom was basic but had a nice hot shower.There were 2 chairs and a table outside and very pretty flowers. It was very quiet since we stayed here on Columbus Day weekend. I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed here on numerous occasions .. it is an old building rooms are very cottage like and dark wood. But it is clean, comfortsble, and the location is the best for shopping, beach and restaurants. Staff is friendly ! The grounds are nice. Fresh coffee and muffins served in the morning.
Prices were reasonable in comparison to other lodging in area. Only complaint I have is checkout time to early 10am.

I love this place -- it is right in the center of Ogunquit village and an easy walk to Ogunquit beach or the Marginal Way. The rooms are charming and you can select your room using the online reservation system. We always stay in the same room every year if possible because we have a favorite. If you absolutely have to have a modern hotel room with the latest plumbing fixtures, you probably won't like staying here, but I love the pine-paneling and the classic decor and the blueberry muffins in the morning.

Just returned from this hotel. Location is wonderful but rooms were very musty smelling. Rooms were very clean but noisy. Take ear plugs if you stay there. The show Mid-Life Crisis at theater in back of hotel was wonderful Cast did an outstanding job and kept us laughing for thr whole time. A MUST SEE while in Ogunquit.

This is a sorry excuse of a Hotel, unfriendly management, tin box showers exposed plumbing and pipes with incorrect labeling of hot and cold. Dreary decor cramped rooms with little or no facilities. The Decor if you can call it that looks to have been sourced from a goodwill store, plastic flowers adorn the dark cheap paper thin knotty pine walls, tired carpets complete the mess. What a crime as this hotel is in the prime location in the town, only minutes walk from the glorious beach and the centre of town.
Who ever owns this establishment is either flat broke or is merely playing at the hospitality game. Management should visit other Hotels in the area to see how dismal this place is.

This motel is right in the center of Ogunquit. It is fairly old, but being upgraded gradually. If you are looking for a nice get-away on a budget, it's a good place. The rooms are old fashioned, but I found them charming. Knotty pine panelling, nice quilts on the beds, somewhat mis-matched but functional furniture. A small wall heater that took the chill off early in the season, a window air conditioner, a small fridge, a small TV that worked well. No phone in the room, so bring your cellphone. But the free wi-fi worked better than in a lot of fancier hotels I've stayed in. Free coffee and good home-made blueberry muffins in the morning.
The location is great, easy walk to the beach, good assigned parking for each room, right in center Ogunquit so just around the corner from the many restaurants and shops in the center of town.

This is not a modern, sleek motel, but there are plenty of them around. But this is so inexpensive (starting at $49 off season), and the rooms are clean. The shower stall in the room I stayed in was yet to be upgraded, so it was a free-standing metal stall. Unlovely perhaps, but it provided a perfectly good, nice hot shower. If you picture a bedroom/en suite bathroom in a friend's old beach house, you might get a good idea of the rooms at the Betty Doon. For a few nights, it was a very nice place to stay, and if I wanted another inexpensive beach weekend, I would definitely come back.
Finally, the staff is very nice. I took the last available room, on the third floor, and as soon as I arrived, there was a staff member who volunteered to carry up my suitcase for me. It seemed like the third floor rooms were larger than others. And their blueberry muffins are great. As they continue to upgrade, this place will keep improving, but right now it is inexpensive and a charming place to stay. Ask for a room with a balcony...

Just came back from Ogunquit, Maine, USA. Stayed at this cute little hotel nicely decorated
for Halloween and with nice scarecrow dolls hanging on our front door. Pictures taken before the scarecrow dolls were put on our motel door., The owner is very nice and offers coffee and great great home made blueberry muffins and blueberry bread. The place is very well kept, clean, towels are changed every day and there is a nice vanity room. There is a big parking area and you are at walking distance from everything such as , beach, stores, marginal way and Perkins Cove. The trolley drops you right across the street from the motel. The only thing that was disagreeable was that the walls are thin and we could hear the neighbor snoring....but it did not stopped us from sleeping. If you want to be near everything at low cost, I recommend this cute hotel/motel.

Room Tip: All rooms are in a quiet area and well located
