This was our first opportunity to see the ruggedness and beauty of Maines's wilderness and coast. After numerous days of hiking and exploring it was with great pleasure to have discovered the charm, comfort and exceptional hospitality of owner, Diane, and staff members of The Lighthouse Inn. The Inn retains the uniqueness, charm and history of days gone by with... More

Very accomodating. When we were checking in we were supposed to be on second floor but after mentioning husband had a transplant, immediately moved to first floor. The building is an older motel type and could use some updating, but it is very clean, has a nice pool area, and is in great location. Easy walk to lighthouse or beaches.... More

This is a lovely place. Great location, lovely pool, nice staff. Lovely communal reception area where complementary breakfast is available - basic but welcome - although with teenagers it would be good if it was available until 10am. Some nice touches like the beach wagons and other beach accessories and pool towels. It's a small hotel and the rooms vary.... More

We opted for the Lighthouse Inn as we wanted to avoid sterile motels, and wanted the charm of a B&B. Unfortunately, the place did not provide this. As another reviewer indicated, this hotel is on the bare-bones, older side. While functional it didn't really have much to offer beyond a motel. Pros of the hotel include the location, being a...

We loved the outstanding location of the inn...tiny walk to the ocean and beach and exactly 1 mile morning walk to the charming Nubble Lighthouse. They served basic breakfast...breads, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, dry cereals, fruit...enough to start the day. Rooms had new furniture but the inn is showing a bit of age. Diane and her staff were very friendly... More

The is an older motel style place. The rooms are a decent size, nothing elaborate with IKEA bedding etc. Lets just say it's functional. Your essentially paying for the location as the Inn is a 2-3 minute walk from Long Beach which is GORGEOUS and about a mile from the historic Nubble light house so an easy walk passing some... More

Rooms were clean. Staff was attentive. Some of the furnishings were a little 'sad'. The maid service did not make the bed. The location is very good. Walking distance to most places. Pool was clean and spacious. Would consider going back. Overall a good value. WiFi was spotty at best. Good outdoor common areas. Breakfast was a simple continental type

Stayed here for 4 nights and had a very relaxing time. I parked my car when I got there and just walked everywhere after that. It is convenient to the beach, dining, and the village center, and Nubble Light. The continental breakfast is very good. There was a nice selection to choose from.

“Ask for a room with a balcony and/or a view. Though truthfully, even without either, Long Sands Beach is a very short walk.”
