We had a great time at Terrace. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was lovely and had a wood burning fire going in the evenings in the shared dining space. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Overlooks the ocean. Perfect place for a couples' getaway.

We have stayed at Terrace-by-the-Sea for several years. It is the perfect location if you're staying in lovely Ogunquit. Motel rooms, inn rooms, some ocean views, lovely manicured lawns and just a nice walk on the path to Ogunquit Beach. Each year there are room renovations. There's a complete continental breakfast with small tables both on the porch outside and... More

This was a very nice place for a girls weekend. Stayed in a suite with two floors. Upstairs had a nice sitting room with a tv and couch that turned into a bed. I was worried about the couch because the mattress was very thin but for one person it was very comfortable. ( wouldn't recommend it for 2 adults.)... More

Tucked away down by the sea The Terrace is a very pleasant place to spend a few days. Our room was at the end of a row on ground floor level. There was no noise or disturbance that could be heard from the adjoining room. The room was very spacious, well equipped and comfortable with a king size bed, fridge... More

They advertise internet service but in reality the service is poor, therefore we had to use our room phone to make a local call (for dinner reservation). We were charged 50 cents for a LOCAL call. The room was clean enough & well maintained but the building lacked any real character. The mattress was lopsided and needed replacement. Reserved parking... More

Super friendly staff. Clean room with an awesome ocean (it was well worth the extra money). Comfortable bed. Breakfast was simple but fresh and plentiful. Stayed in September after schools had gone back, so no children. Highly recommend.

Staff is very welcoming. We stayed in the main house. This has the appearance of an inn with lovely oriental rugs up both stairs leading to our room. Our room overlooked the ocean and had side views and had a quaint appeal to it. The bed could use a new mattress. This was two twins put together and seem to... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Terrace by the Sea. Our room had a quaint vintage appearance, but contained all the amenities one could want. We had a lovely sea view out one of our windows, considered to be a partial water view, due to it being just one window. Breakfast was very good. We would definitely stay... More
