Only 24 hours into our trip here and all 3 key cards became deactivated and would not allow access to our room or main building. Fortunately, one adult was left in the room and could allow the others in. Our ID's are left locked in the room while we use pool, amenities, etc. They gave us new cards but now...

I stayed in a timeshare unit at Samoset for two weeks in March 2017. In every way I found the resort to be superior. (if the worst thing you can say about a place is that you wished it had a potato peeler you are doing well...) View of ocean as in previous Samoset stays from bedroom and living room...

The property is right on the ocean and is a great place for a small or large meeting. I went in the off season and a lot of the property was in winter mode but still great. Very friendly staff. Would recommend.

Took my wife to the Samoset for her birthday. It's a special place for us as we were engaged there 13 years ago. We had a relaxing time, and management was responsive to our needs. We enjoyed the food and using the pool and fitness facilities.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay last Saturday at the Samoset. Everything was wonderful: the room with a great view, our dinner at your restaurant, and the terrific customer service from all of the staff. One of the top resorts we've ever stayed at. We're definitely coming back!

My daughter and I stayed at the Samoset Resort for the first time. We had heard some good things and had a spa weekend as a treat! The resort is attractively situated and furnished. We were off season which was good,( I imagine the place is very busy and loud in the summertime.) Our room was lovely, great view!! The...

I paid for an upgrade but when I checked in the hotel clerk could not find it. Two different owners told me the room I was staying in was not an upgrade. Checking out the clerk informed me that I would have to take it up with the certificate issuers. The hotel had nothing to do with the upgrade.

Family of 5 (3 young kids) stayed for several days during Feb break. We stayed in a recently renovated room which was beautifully done and roomy. Balcony with a great view of the ocean. The staff is very friendly and there are a lot of kid activities - they even turned a couple of the conference rooms into play areas...

This resort enjoys a wonderful reputation. Indeed, the ocean views are exquisite, the guest robes are comfy and the food is excellent. There is need to be given to soiled spots in guest rooms and various public locations. I took notice that a general updating of mattresses and furniture needs to be addressed in many of the rooms. Perhaps, since...

This past weekend we took a last minute trip up the coast of Maine for a quick get away. My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Samoset. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern and the views beautiful. It was snowing when we arrived so it made it difficult to get outside and explore the Rockland breakwater...
