The MOTEL is across the street from the beach BUT it is all rocks there and not for swimming. You have to drive down the road to access a sandy beach. The rooms are very old, very dated and the rugs are dirty. We were told we would have a view of the light house......yes if you lay in your...

My family goes to York Beach a few times each year. The hotel where we normally stay was booked on a weekend we wanted to go up last minute. We decided to stay at the Sea Latch for 2 reasons. The first was that my husband used to stay there as a child and second they had just done renovations....

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Sea Latch. We are sorry to hear that you would not return as a guest. Our new building has been well received and we feel that our rates are competitive for the area and the summer season along the Maine coast. All of the rooms in the Manor House feature a butler's...

Our family rents a cottage there for a week each year. The location is great and for a family looking for a place to stay and play, it's nice. The cottages show some wear and tear but are a nice getaway with full kitchens. Beds are a bit small for larger guests but decent overall. The hotel rooms are older...

We appreciate your comments regarding Sea Latch Inn. We're glad you enjoyed our location and the surrounding area. Since your last visit, we have added 31 new rooms, refurbished the pool, and have started adding new coffee makers to every room which should be finished by this fall. We hope you will visit us again soon!

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion about the Sea Latch Inn. Our all-new Manor House and pool provides an opportunity for us to appeal to a greater number of guests, particularly our new ADA (handicapped) room and suites, the ease of entrance to the building and the new elevator. The new building has been well received...

The Sea Latch was directly located across from the Beach.....Gotta love it!!! The rooms are clean, with comfortable beds. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when we had questions.

If you are looking for a good location to the beach, this is excellent. If you are looking for a nice place to stay, this is not it. The rooms are tiny and dated. My husband actually felt claustrophobic in the room. I would describe it as your typical older motel feel inside.

Thank you for taking the time to review Sea Latch Inn. We heard you! Since your last visit, we have built a new 31 room, 3 story, elevated hotel. We have refurbished the pool and have added over 30 new parking spaces. However, we are not finished yet, there will be more positive changes coming to the Sea Latch Inn!...

We've been staying at the Sea Latch most summers for many years. We love that it's kid-friendly, handicapped accessible, and right across from the beach. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are comfy and clean, and the cottages were our kids' favorites back when they were little. We'll be staying again this summer, can't wait!
