This was the only place available during 4th of July week, so we booked 3 rooms together, as there were 10 of us traveling, including 4 children. Ended up being the perfect place for us.

It's most certainly not a Hilton, Hyatt, or Doubletree, as the property is very outdated, however, what it may lack in decor and modern amenities, it makes up for in charm and family hospitality. The grounds on the property are quite large, and offers many activities including a swimming pool, tennis court, badminton, basketball, shuffleboard, and many picnic tables and outdoor grills. We made use of everything but the shuffleboard. The trolley comes right into the property to take you downtown, and to the beach, which is minutes away.

Everyone, from the front desk staff, to the ground keeper, are very friendly and welcoming. It was a packed house during 4th of July week, but you felt a sense of community there. It was nice.

The rooms were literally straight out of the 70's, and smelled like Lysol. The lawn chairs outside each room were a nice touch, and gave it a homey feeling, as we sat outside just before sunset, enjoying a cold beer, watching the kids play basketball. One afternoon there was a big storm approaching, with crazy storm clouds forming, and everyone was just sitting outside of their rooms on the lawn chairs, while one guy was playing his guitar, and everything just felt perfect!

When we first arrived in our big passenger van, I can see eyes rolling at the sight of this outdated property. The day we were checking out, no one wanted to leave. That pretty much sums it up!

We have been guests here many times dating back from the time the legendary Harry owned the place. Since Liam has been at the helm, he has made changes and improvements gradually. No massive facelift but some nice little perks like the improved and updated pool and large pool towels. The BBQ's on the green are efficient, the tables are in good condition and the rooms have new carpeting. Granted, it's not for the super fussy and you are not on the beach but the Trolley stops here, Liam and the staff are very accomodating, and the pool is spotless.
In the common room where breakfast is provided things can get messy but most guests are tidy...and the biggest plus is that there are three refrigerators where you can put perisables. We bought a wonderful cooked chicken and a couple of salads at De Moulas after a day at the outlets and had it in the common roomalong with a huge group from Quebec and another bunch of knitting devotees. It was fun, friendly and from our point of view...the ideal place for our annual escape to Maine.

Room Tip: Call ahead and find out exactly what's available.

The majority of the B&B's were full this lovely late summer weekend, but we managed to find a room available at the Majestic. The price was very reasonable for the location, a few blocks from the beach and a few minutes down the road from the heart of Ogunquit. We recieved a confirmation call about 8pm to verify that we were definetly coming, got to the hotel about 930, a very pleasant greeting, easy check in. Kind of braced ourselves since the price was so low - but found a nice, clean and basic room waiting for us. The artwork is newer...but the 20" basic TV, and the flowered 70's style bedspread could use some updating (oh, and a couple more pillows on the king size beds too)...just a heads up ;-). The continetal breakfast was typical...but the donut and fritters selection were wonderful. Surprisingly a very nice stay...will probably be back in the future.

This place is very tired, weathered, and run down. Breakfast was a messy affair, and not particularly appealing with stale-looking danish, bags of bread strewn all over the countertops, and no one bussing their own tables. The "nearby" beach was over a mile away, with only permit parking. Everything in the room was threadbare... For the price we paid per night, we should have stayed elsewhere!

This place is a flashback to the 1960's. Having said that, we enjoyed it. We released ourselves to just enjoying each other (in a time when computers, and cells are in our hands at a constant)..The room was outdated, but clean. The community room for breakfast was sweet. The donuts were fresh. Having the ability to cook out, play horseshoes, play tennis and swim are nice. We brought our dog (8lbs). Very laid back, go back to the 1960's and enjoy some nostalgia.

Room Tip: ask for the best room!
