My mother and I stayed there for 6 days in an oceanfront room (117). Absolutely loved it. This is our 4th stay at The Terrace and never disappointed. You cannot beat the location - easy walk to town and numerous restaurants. Rooms are clean and practical. Loved having a small fridge in the rooms. Excellent views of the river and beach - you can't beat the sunrises. Staff very friendly and helpful. We will be back! Thank you for giving us a wonderful week.
My wife surprised me with a birthday stay at Terrace by the Sea, we stayed in room 233-a king ocean view suite, overlooking the beach and inlet, and the room was perfect, the view was fantastic, and a special shout-out to the Saturday desk and breakfast staff who made our stay that much more pleasant. A bonus was meeting people at breakfast who lived near us in Connecticut. A great experience. Highly recommended.
Beautiful small hotel . We booked ocean view and it was gorgeous . Great location . Close to beach walking but right in town. Parked car and did not have to move it. Hotel staff lovely. Will definitely be back
Our 5 day stay at The Terrace by the Sea was excellent. Our room (109) was in the main house-very spacious- a comfy queen bed and a twin bed. There were 2 queen Ann armchairs which made for comfy TV viewing or when moved to the windows, a nice place to watch the water. From the queen bed, a perfect view of the pre-sunrise sky or the water was beautiful. I appreciated the fluffy Turkish towels and luxury bath products - Gilchrist & Soames. The bathroom was adequately sized. This Inn has more of a bed and breakfast feel than a true hotel. The grounds were impeccably maintained- the lawn & flowers were maintained daily as was the heated outdoor pool area. Groupings of 2 chairs or loungers spotted the lawn overlooking the waterfront. A perfect place to watch the water, take your breakfast or read a book-weather permitting. The hotel is serious about Covid protocols- Hand sanitizers everywhere; reminder signage about mask wearing & distancing was abundant but not obtrusive. I felt comfortable with the cleanliness of the Inn. I particularly appreciated the ability to decline room servicing-the front desk was available for towel refreshment or in room coffee service refills. Desk staff was okay-not overly friendly-which I found odd with the reduced guest capacity & uncrowded nature during our stay. Perhaps their reduced hours limited their availability; we came & went at various times and seldom saw (nor needed) their assistance. It would have been nice to know there was coffee service available after breakfast hours in the lobby, especially when I asked at check in if there was a place closeby to grab coffee at 5pm. I was not told it was available onsite and only “discovered” this accidentally on day 3. Again, more of a B&B experience than a hotel with desk staff. Their modified “expanded continental breakfast” was staff served behind glass partitions with no contact between guests or staff. Breakfast itself was adequate- choice of individually wrapped toast, store made mini muffins, granola, yogurt, instant oatmeal packs and fresh fruits, coffe, tea and juices. An addition of a protein- hard cooked egg or cheese choice- would have been perfect and not cost prohibitive for the Inn to provide. There was self serve coffee service in the lobby after breakfast hours- which was unfortunately often without cups available, so unusable. Disposable plates, cups & utensils were used, I assume due to Covid protocols. The location of the Inn was ideal,walkable to the Marginal Way, right in the village main area without being on a busy street, and a 2 minute picturesque stroll to the Ogunquit beach bridge. We would stay here again- preferably IN tourist season without Covid restrictions. 4.5 / 5 stars.…
We loved the town, the location of the hotel (ocean front view) and the people at the hotel. It seemed clean and take good precautions for the covid. The downside was the room. It had blinds but no curtains and there was a light outside of the window so we didn't sleep well. Also, perhaps debatable but, the ceiling was cracking constantly with the steps of the people in the room above us so it was a bad to horrible stay afterall.. We saw another couple payment more money to get another room this morning . Referen r room #100
