Inn By the Sea is a beautiful place to stay while in the Portland area and farther coastal destinations. We traveled north to Camden, south to Portsmouth NH and stopped at many of the really nice Oceanside towns in between.

inn has a lovely location with easy access to crescent beach via a boardwalk through indigenous foliage. The beach is close to pristine. We stayed in a traditional room on the third floor. It was small. Two windows overlooked the peaked roof and off to the sea. The room is okay for one, tight for two. Bathroom is large but...

We stayed here 2 nights in one of the beach suites, on the second floor. The view of the ocean was great, although if we looked to the left, we saw the neighborhood of houses as others here mentioned. It was more of a condo than a suite and the only complaint was noise from above. The unit above was...

I can't say enough good things about Inn by the Sea. The staff is extremely attentive (and friendly!), the view from my spa suite was incredible, and the room amenities were just, well, wow. Lots of attention to detail all around. I wish I'd been able to stay for more than 1 night!

This is a beautiful Inn where the staff bends over backwards to be accommodating. It's a very homey feel while elegant. The beds are very comforatable and every room as a view of the ocean. Super Dog friendly too. It is a little pricey but so nice. The grounds are beautiful and the outdoor pool is heated and was great.
