This quiet motel is just over a foot bridge from Perkins Cove. You can watch everything happen from your balcony or close the door and have total peace and quiet. The Marginal Way is within a 3 minute walk also. You can see the ocean from most balconies. (Ocean view but not directly on the ocean. The cove is right... More

Thank you Jim T for sharing your stay with the T/A community. Many others will appreciate the time that all reviewers take so that travelers may discover just the type of place that suits them best.

After decades of seeing this place from the other side of Perkins Cove, my wife and I recently had the opportunity to stay there. The view upon walking into the room was nothing less than spectacular, making for an absolutely outstanding start for our stay. It's like walking into a post card every time you enter the room. The room... More

The Riverside Motel sits right on the harbor in Perkins Cove with beautiful landscaping and a lawn that extends right to the waterfront. A very short walk across the footbridge to the wonderful shops and restaurants in Perkins Cove. From there you can walk the Marginal Way into the town of Ogunquit and Ogunquit beach. Everyone there was extremely nice... More

The Riverside Motel is so peaceful, overlooking Perkins Cove and just a walk across the bridge to go to the shops of Perkins Cove, restaurants, the Marginal Way. If you want to head to Ogunquit Village, just hop the trolley to do some shopping or head to the beach!!!

The Riverside is the perfect location in Ogunquit. Lovely views of Perkins Cove and the closeness to the footbridge makes this a wonderful location. The staff is very friendly and helpful and clean rooms with a great view of all the activity on the cove. Shops, restaurants, and the Marginal Way are all right there!!
