“Great Vacation Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

My wife and I love this place. We have stayed here for the past 13 years in late August as our "end of the summer" finale. The room we book is a oceanfront unit with a little deck that overlooks beautiful Oqunquit Beach. The rooms are always spotless and well kept. We never hear noise from the adjoining rooms and the only sounds are the ocean.. The included breakfast is outstanding! Highly reccomended vacation spot!!

Room Tip: Lots of repeat visitors so book early

We had an oceanside room with a magnificent view of the Ogunquit River, the Beach and the Ocean from the room or the balcony. In the morning, beautiful sunrises. Our room was big, had 2 easy chairs, a desk and a mini refrigerator. The hotel is right on the Marginal Way, the 1+mile walk along the rocky coast and only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Great because parking at the beach costs $25/day. The pool was clean and heated so great for a late afternoon dip. Continental breakfast buffet with delicious homemade muffins, but there are many restaurants within a 5 minute walk for full breakfasts. All staff were so gracious, welcoming and helpful.

We've stayed in Ogunquit 2 times before, and stayed at York Harbor last year. We enjoyed all our stays at the hotels - Beachmere, Anchorage and Stage Neck in York Harbor, but we LOVED the Sparhawk the best. Great views, terrific staff, the other guests were super friendly, it was closer to town - everything was just wonderful. When we go back to Ogunquit, we will definitely stay at the Sparhawk (if there is a vacancy!) Thank you for a wonderful time!

This was a last minute trip. My daughter & I were looking for a weekend away, and a friend recommended Ogunquit, and somehow we lucked out and managed to get a 3 night reservation at the Sparhawk. I was impressed from the moment we drove onto the beautifully maintained property. We ended up on the second floor of the Ireland House, which had a breathtaking view of the ocean, as well as the many gorgeous flower gardens. The room was spotless and the beds were extremely comfortable. The dining room was adorable - although the breakfast was generic and nothing special (my only criticism). Free coffee & tea all day was greatly appreciated! The pool was very clean and just the right temperature. The immediate access to the Marginal Way and the short walk to the main beach and "downtown" area were definitely a plus. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I can't wait to go back!

It was a complete fluke that we were able to stay here and that they had 3 nights available. Price was reasonable and they had a lovely 2 bedroom with 3 baths and a kitchen available. Staff was super friendly and remembered our names and asked us how we liked our stay each day! they were very accommodating to our needs since we have 2 young boys with Autism. Suzette the housekeeper was super sweet and personable. Place was clean and well maintained and had a great view. Start of the marginal way as well. Close to everything! Highly recommended! We already requested our reservation for next year!
