Just returned from a holiday weekend at the Aspinquid. The location cannot be beat! It is just steps to the beach and the center of Ogunquit. The new bedding and mattresses were certainly appreciated, but the housekeeping staff needs a whole refresher course on cleaning rooms. They need to learn what the word "cleaning" means. It is not yanking the covers up on a bed and not cleaning the sink and vanity.
The balcony was nice to have and the grounds were nicely kept. There was also a decent sized pool.
The major wrinkles were the housekeeping and a front desk lady named Sylvia. She was not very pleasant and was inattentive when we brought our housekeeping concerns to her attention. Pleasantly though, the other desk ladies more than made up for the other issues we ran into.
And the location is definitely one of the best in town.

The rooms had been updated, large rooms with two double beds. Marsh and sea views with excellent prices for the area. Central and walking distance to all stores and restaurants in town. We stayed in new updated building and was in the last room on middle floor, wifi wasn't accessible and really wasn't a huge problem for me.

Room Tip: Wifi wasn't accessible from the rooms in small building. Quiet rooms and great pool

A short walk to the beach to enjoy Sunrise, Sunset & sun all day this is the hotel. Parked our car in the lot the first day that we arrived and did not need to move it all week. ( plenty of parking by the way) Equally as short walk to Main street in town to enjoy a different fun and delicious restaurant each night. The front office staff, nice, friendly and helpful. Same is to be said for the housekeeping and maintenance staff. We visited just before their busy season was to start. Looked like they had replaced and refreshed for the season. Seemed like our towels, beds, pillows, sheets and bright white comforters were all brand new. The maintenance crew was working hard at keeping the grounds , mowed, trimmed and looking nice, while not disturbing guests. The outside siding and balcony of the building that we stayed in was new, and we could see that they were still finishing trim on other units. I am assuming new carpet in the unit that we stayed in also, because for being so close to the beach and not a speck of sand, before we arrived.
We chose this hotel room for two reasons and were not disappointed. Location as stated above, close to both beach and restaurants and for the fact that there were 3 full size beds in our unit. We were vacationing with two adult children, so a pull out sofa is not the answer anymore. The luxury to have 3 full beds in one hotel room was fabulous. One of the beds is on the 2nd floor loft area, which provides Mom & Dad a little bit of privacy.

I almost forgot to mention, when tired of the beach, there is a perfect sized clean pool to enjoy conveniently located near all rooms. A equally wonderful little work out gym with new treadmill equipment which we actually used one morning. There is a tennis court next to this area, we forgot to ask if that was for guest use, but assumed it was. Next time we will bring racquets. Great, slightly shaded location. Plenty of fun for all guests to enjoy.

the only reason this hotel does not receive a 5 star is that there are a few quirks that the visitor forgives, because location, cleanliness and staff are so terrific.

I will list some so that perhaps they will be improved for our next visit..which we will definitely be back. A few easy fix situations....lovely 2nd floor room with a lamp by bed, but there is not an electrical outlet. Odd? In todays world of phones used as alarm clocks, it would be nice to have a place to plug in upstairs.....might remove the lamp or add outlet. The other simple fix is to build in a shelf or box around the mini fridge, if you want that to be the location for the TV. The last suggestion, I am sure can not be changed for this season, but might be considered for future years...the nice new balcony has new wood rail....with wide boards, so that standing the view of the ocean is wonderful, but if you want to sit on the spacious balcony and relax at end of day or sit with coffee to start your day watching the spectacular sunrise....the wide board blocks all view. The highest side flat wood rail, could easily meet code by using perhaps two thin boards so you could at least peek between the wood when seated.

This hotel was affordable and met our vacation needs. We enjoyed a wonderful week with our family. Thank you!

Room Tip: Looked like all rooms have a balcony and nice views

Dear SunSeekerrmd,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed and pleasant review of the Aspinquid at Norseman Resort. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the new towels, pillows, sheets, and comforters; we have been very busy updating and replacing things in the buildings. All the amenities are for your use, including the tennis court . Sounds like the Penthouse Level in the Summer Building with 3 beds was a perfect fit for your families needs. We appreciate your suggestions and will seriously consider them.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Have a wonderful summer!

What a wonderful getaway we had on our first stay at this hotel! Right from the start, we knew we were going to have a great stay here. There is an absolutely charming young mom with long hair that is one of the nicest front desk girls you will ever meet! She clearly enjoys her job and knows plenty about the area. She had us quickly in the right direction with keys in hand to a lovely apartment which had everything we would need for the next few days. The apartment had two beds as well as a pull out sleeper, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. There were also two TV's and two balconies to enjoy the Beach avenue view! It was a great spot to people watch and enjoy a bit of an ocean view! The room was clean and perfect for our needs. Having the kitchen was nice so as to not eat every meal out, although coffee is complimentary each morning in the hotel's lobby.
The grounds were lovely as well with gardens, an in ground pool, fitness center, and tennis court and the property is within sight of the beach. Plenty of dining choices are also a stone's throw from your room.
Marginal Way is not far and the trolley can be be picked up a few hundred feet in either direction of the driveway of the hotel. It really was a most convenient location for those who do not want to use their car once they arrive. Fresh veggies and fruit as well as deli meats and basic groceries can be easily acquired at the darling Village General Store only a couple minute walk from the hotel.
Yes we were most impressed with the Aspinquid. We even included a couple of photos of our impressive apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed the friendly front desk, the cleanliness and the amenities. The location was certainly a plus as well! We plan to return to Ogunquit in the next couple of years and hope the same apartment is available.

If you want a comfortable room thats clean and close to the restaurants and shops in town and thats also a stone's throw from the beach, this is the place. With motel units or more spacious apartments to choose from, it has everything you need including balconies on every room and a good sized pool and fitness center. The grounds are nicely kept and the staff is friendly, especially the front desk who is quick to answer any question or find you what you need.
Not overly fancy, the Aspinquid does it's job just fine on its own by being clean and having an unbeatable location. Definitely returning on our next visit!
