The Atlantic is a long time favorite of my wife and I. We've been regulars for 20 years. Although the motel is slightly dated, it is very clean and the owners are friendly folks. The 2nd floor balcony's are private and the view is spectacular. Step off the stairs and you're on the beach. Sunrises are great.

We recently spent a long weekend at our favorite place in southeast Maine, choosing a ground floor oceanfront room (convenient to the garage and the beach). The rooms are well maintained, as is the property in general. There was great surf at the time (good for watching and listening).

My wife and I stayed here 9/23-9/26. You can't beat its location-just steps from the ocean. We stayed in an oceanfront Queen room. Our private balcony door opened up to a beautiful view of the ocean and beach. Rooms were definitely adequate and well maintained. Lots of small shops and a couple of restaurants were nearby. Only drawback we could...

Comments are from off-season visits(3 so far) only (before Memorial Day or after Labor Day): Pros: Quiet, Beach views are unbeatable. Biggest room balconies of any of the hotels at/near the beach. Always book an ocean front room + balcony! Speedy wi-fi! Rooms have been clean. Bed/bath lines are better quality than what I've seen in 5-star hotels in Boston/New...

Stayed here in July for my annual vacation. If you want to be right on the beach, this is your place! I prefer the oceanfront rooms (but they get booked fast). But no matter what room you stay in you're just steps from the sand & beach. The owners are wonderful as are their staff. The rooms are comfy and...

We just spent 5 days at Atlantic Oceanfront and it was great! Our boys, ages 11 & 8, loved the beach & pool which were both just steps away from our room. The room was clean and the staff were polite and helpful. We'll definitely be back.

just completed my annual visit to Maine and again stayed at the Atlantic Motor Inn. It is always clean and comfortable. and for the time of year the rates are comparable for the time of year. suggest that one books the second floor (same floor as the pool) and ocean front with balcony overlooking ocean.

Took a long girls weekend with a friend when we were both in need of a little peace and restoration. In early May, this was the perfect place for that. It was my second annual trip, and I will probably be back next year!

Last minute thought turned into a great relaxing 2 days on the beach. From the time I called for a reservation (the night before arrival) until we left, our stay was amazing!!! Front desk people were polite and accommodating. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. They are not large rooms, but why would you want to be in your room when...
