Dave A, Our hotel sits on the town line of Ogunquit & Wells. We do advertise on our website and all 3rd party agencies that our physical address is Wells! We are just over a mile to the center of Ogunquit, which gives guests the option to walk. As you mentioned, guests can also take the trolley, as the hotel... More

Wonderful , clean comfortable place to stay with beautiful views, right on trolley stop, convenient to restaurants and beaches, staff very nice with a breakfast provided which is quite convenient. A visit to Perkins Dove is a must see and walk the marginal way.

Truly a "motel" - certainly nothing here to write home about. The website touts the proximity to Rachel Carson Reserve - when in truth this very "hotel" infringes on the Reserve's buffer zone (at least aesthetically) if a proper buffer zone was established. It is truly remarkable that one can travel to the Boothbay Harbor and Southport areas beyond this... More

cpdowdell, The Ogunquit River Inn is in fact, borders the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, just as we advertise. Our rates vary depending on the demand and the selected dates. Our hotels rates during your stay, were the lowest in the area with availability. It also looks like you booked through a third party agency; you can always get a lower... More

Just outside the hustle bustle of Ogunquit proper lies the Ogunquit River Inn. Close enough to all the sites and yet nestled away from the traffic and noise of the city itself, the location overlooking the river which leads out to the ocean is outstanding. Most rooms offer a large balcony that you share with your neighbor (whom we never... More

This place was great for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool is small but there is a jacuzzi.
