“Our Vacation Saver!”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

This hotel saved our vacation. We had been screwed by a dirty nasty smelly place in Kittery and decided to go hunting for a place with vacancy. We went to a few places with only one room available for the 2 nights and 7 people we needed to accomodate. The Sea Latch was the 4th place we stopped and they had 2 double rooms side by side. The rooms were a little out dated but very clean, friendly staff and good breakfast coupons for the place down the road. We had a blast at the beach right accross the road and vacation turned out great!

I stayed at the Sea Latch in a weekly cottage last week. I had an excellent time. The weather was perfect. We accomplished just about every water activity there is. The cottage was adorable. Very clean. We grilled several nights outside, met a lot of other nice vacationers staying there also. The people that work in the Front Office were extremely helpful in providing us with all the activities and restaurants available in the area to try. Over all I would give this place an A. I highly recommend it for your family.

Reviewed 24 July 2011

I went to The Sea Latch Motel for a week with my husband and girlfriend. It was a last minute plan and it was really the only place available, at the time, that was right across the street from the beach/ocean. You can't beat the location. The room, on the other hand, was not so good. It smelled of insecticide and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. We stayed in H3 and because we were there for a week we were considered "long term" guests. They advertise free hot breakfast but not for us. One day we received maid service and the next day we didn't. One day we had to pay to park, the next day we didn't. One day we were given toilet paper the next day we were told to buy our own. No towels for us either! My husband joked about the staff at the office and wondered what color their mood rings would be on any given day. We never seemed to get the same answer from anyone. Once we were told "she must have missed the staff meeting". Huh? Black mood rings that day! We will never go back! It really could have been a more positive experience if the staff could have got their acts together and if the beds were more comfortable

Reviewed 14 September 2010

We made reservations by speaking direct to the motel clerk for a two night stay on a weekend in Sept. 2010. Having never stayed at this location, we were assured that the room H-7 had an excellent ocean front view witha balcony. It did. However, when we arrived at 8:00PM and entered our "suite" as it was protrayed to be, we almost fainted when we opened the door. To begin with we had to enter from the back side up a pair of run down stairs and a very dirt carpeted stairway to the second floor. The smell and the entrance should have been warning enough, but we forged on. When we opened the door to the room and all there was for lighting was a very old, outdated ceiling light and one small table lamp, you got it, everything went down from there. By the way, the ocean front view, you had to look through a sliding glass door that was so old and stained that you could not see the ocean and the balcony was as dirty and detoriated as the entrance stairs. the poarch furniture on the deck was filthy, I bet had not been cleand in months, probably years. No phone in roo,, a small 13" TV, no dresser for clothes, no portable luggage rack to set you suitcase on, ect. Absoutley, Hell On Earth !! Sleep in your car first.

Nobody could argue that the location of this motel is extraordinary...just across the ocean. However, cleanliness is not a luxury. The sink area was not clean and the sliding door had children's handprints on it inside and out, which I cleaned after the first day. Obviously, cleaning staff didn't catch it the first or second time. Asking for an extra pillow twice was also a waste of time. As for the value of our room...let's say that the room rate was posted at $205/night and we were charged more...NOT WORTH IT!
