It's hard to believe some many positive reviews of a small, family owned, motel but we're now believers! Set on a quaint property just across from Perkins Cove, Riverside offers comfortable accommodations with terrific views (based on your room). We stayed in their newest Building C, and enjoyed a large picture window with a lovely view of the grounds with the ocean in the background. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms offered good hot water with all new fixtures, and electronics were similarly new. We were greeted by the owner who is a genial, welcoming character. The motel is close to the Trolley stop to take you to downtown Ogunquit, avoiding the traffic and parking problems. In all a very pleasant discovery on our trip.

Room Tip: Building C is new.

Booked a very last minute trip to Ogunquit and stayed for 3 nites at the Riverside Motel. Had a second floor room with a balcony overlooking Perkins Cove. We loved this place. The rooms were spotless. Continental breakfast goes from 7-11 which is terrific when 2 people wake up at different times. Excellent muffins and donuts. You cannot beat the location. It is literally steps from the bridge in Perkins Cove. We didn't use our car until the day we checked out. The staff were all really nice. If you are looking for lots of bells and whistles (pool, workout room, hot tub etc) you will be disappointed. If you want a really lovely, quiet, somewhat modest but absolutely charming place to stay this is where you want to go. We wish we had discovered this sooner. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor overlooking the cove.

If you look at my profile you will see I am a repeat visitor to the Riverside Motel. But please don't worry I am not a family member, close friend, or distant relative of the owners but a satisfied long term guest. What I have quoted in my earlier reviews are the foundation of why I continue to stay at the Riverside: Excellent rates, excellent staff overseen by Anthony, excellent owners Geoff & Nancy, and of course location, location, location! Besides the beautiful views from every room, you can literally walk everywhere from Perkins Cove across the bridge, to the Marginal Way, or down Shore Road to the village center. This past visit I had my car out once and that was to make my annual pilgrimage to Harding's Book Store in Wells. But honestly, you will not find better hosts in Ogunquit then Geoff and Nancy. Whether it is their uncanny abilities to always seems to put me in my favorite room or suggestions of area attractions, they are attentive without being obtrusive. And for some reason if something should need attention Anthony and his fabulous crew are there to assist with whatever you may need or require. So if your looking for paradise of what I consider a true Maine vacation give Geoff a call as you'll be glad you did.

We were greeted by a sweet young lady who couldn't have been more welcoming. Our room was spacious with two double beds, a large desk, refrigerator, and two comfy chairs. Most of all, it was very clean. The balcony had two chairs and a chaise and a great view of the harbor and drawbridge. Parking was right outside our door. A complimentary continental breakfast was offered each morning. We would not hesitate to stay here again if ever in the area.
