“Perfectly located for an Ogunquit weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

We spent a weekend at Seacastles last month. From reservations to checkout, the staff is thoroughly professional. Our studio rental was immaculate and comfortable. It was so nice to park the car and walk everywhere. Ogunquit's famous traffic was much in evidence that weekend and it was so convenient to be on foot. We're planning another visit.

A couple of cautions: the galley kitchen has no dishwasher and there's a fee if the hotel does your dishes. Not that either of those is a big deal but it was a surprise at a place that labels itself a resort.

The towels in the bathroom were skimpy, not the first quality you'd expect at a resort. There was only one towel for the kitchen area and no paper towels.

Room Tip: The front desk service is tremendous, just ask if you need anything. They're very accommodatin...

We stayed here in Sept. We have been going to Maine for 17 years and usually stay in Wells but wanted a change of pace and the ability to walk to beach, shopping etc. Love the little studio we were in. Everything in this place is very clean. Our room was spotless as was the pool area. The staff was friendly. We are happy to have found a new "home away from home" and look forward to many more visit to the Seacastles. Oh, the price was great too! We had originally wanted to stay on the ocean side for the view...but the cost was way more than we wanted to spend....and it ended up being a very foggy weekend...we wouldn't have see the ocean anyway!

Stayed @ Sea Castles for the first time Labor Day weekend. Celebrated my Mother's 84TH birthday with family. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Atmosphere is relaxing and appreciated that it was more of an older crowd.
The views from our room were amazing and the accomodations great! Have stayed at many great places in Ogunquit, but will now consider this to be my favorite!

At the Shore Road entrance to the Marginal Way, an Ogunquit crown jewel, rests the Seacastles; an unassuming beach colonial facing the sea.

At Seacastles, the gem is around the back.
A clean, well maintained pool and spa.

At the door step a ten minute walk to beach, town or an athletic run to Perkins Cove. Too tired from relaxing? Just take the trolley. No car needed.

Looking to explore the area? A jaunty fifteen minute ride south on Shore Road puts you at Cape Neddick Lobster Pound, call for reservations, and enjoy a tranquil western view of sea marsh and tidal river. Further south discover the Yorks and beaches and swing north on Route 1 for a quicker return to the Seacastles.

Make one evening available for the Ogunquit Lobster Pound, just north on Route 1, and pick your new lobster buddy right from their lobster pools! When satiated an easy ride back to your hot tub spa will ease the guilt over your buddy's demise.

Return to the Seacastles year round! The value seasons are especially tasty in their savings, and many rooms have a kitchenette for handy brew-up and ‘calm me downs’ from all the relaxation, and guilt.

Oh? So, you’ve forgotten your little lobster buddy so soon?

Room Tip: Loft rooms 206 to 209 face the ocean with decks and a bedroom above creates a meeting space walk-in...

My partner and I stayed here from 9/5 thru 9/9. We arrived early and we were allowed to park our car in the lot and explore the town while our room was prepared. The front desk staff member, Patty, who checked us in was gracious and she helped with information such as where to find the nearest gas station! Ogunquit is small and the gas stations are quite hidden unless you know where to go!

We stayed in a studio suite facing the front lawn with a view of the Marginal Way. This property is directly across the street from the entrance and what a view as you walk the paved path along the shore! The room itself is quite large and we were pleased to find extra pillows in the closet for the bed. There is a small kitchenette which has a fridge/freezer, a stove, microwave, coffee maker, and cupboards filled with basic needs like silverwear, plates, and cups etc. There is a small TV and a VCR in the room, but having a DVD player would have been more practical. We travel with a laptop so we just hooked up that and watched movies that way.

As reviewers have said, the interior look of the room feels dated. True, upgrading the furnishings and adding more warm lighting would improve the first impression but you need to put things in perspective. We were not in our room much, as there is so much to see and do in Ogunquit and the surrounding area. Basically, we slept in a comfortable bed and it was blissfully free from noise. We liked having the fridge available to stash goodies from the local sweet shops! It was clean, housekeeping kept the room neat and tidy. There is also a patio with chairs and a table to sit out on and people watch which is a nice touch! We did have a small issue with the sliding closet door coming off the track. We informed the front desk and they had fixed within two hours while we were out exploring.

There is a nice indoor swimming pool and it actually is deep! What a treat in the days of hotels now that have 'mini pools' that only go 3 feet max. There is also a large indoor hot tub with powerful jets that help relax those tired muscles from all that walking! We took advantage of both most nights and often we had the fortune of having it all to ourselves! There is an outdoor hot tub as well, but we never tried it. It looked inviting none the less!

We had a wonderful vacation even though the rain from tropical storm LEE moved in and kept us wet for most of it. There were enough shops between Ogunquit and Perkins Cove to keep us busy despite the lack of quality beach time.

The Seacastles provided a lovely home base upon which to explore the coast of Southern Maine. We were happy with the location, the room, and the price for the stay which was reasonable when compared to many others in the immediate area. We look forward to returning to this seaside escape! Thank you for the wonderful vacation memories!
