This was our first time visiting Maine so I was a little overwhelmed with accommodation options. The York Harbor Motel was great if you're looking for a nice basic accommodation. The location was perfect. The beach across the street was a tad too rocky for our liking so we walked the short distance up the road to perfect sandy beach...

This motel is across the street from the ocean and a fantastic beach (Long Sands Beach) so you'll save parking fees if your planning to spend the day at the beach. The unit we stayed in had a small kitchen area (a small fridge that froze everything but better than a fridge that doesn't keep things cold, coffee maker, toaster,...

On our recent trip to Maine we decided to travel "Old School" and made no advance reservation, relying primarily on trip advisor to help locate places to stay. The staff was very nice, but made a point to tell me he moved me to a better room for the view. The room had a distinctly musty smell. We shared our...

Starting with the the room clerk, everything was a plus. The woman who took our walk-in couldn't have been any nicer. The room we chose was a "side view" for a few dollars less than the oceanfront view and did not disappoint. The room was really clean, big points for that, and actually spacious. No bells or whistles, just a...

Stayed at a 3rd floor motel room for 2 nights in the weekend with a family of four. For this kind of area and location, they offered a great location and services. As a few other reviewers had previously mentioned, the building and rooms were older and outdated. However, I was impressed by their cleanness. The reception staff was genuinely...

Just returned from the weekend. The location was perfect, right across from the ocean. but at the southern end of the beach, away from the crowds but accessible to everything. All staff were outstanding, went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time.

Enjoy peace and tranquility, be lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean. York Harbor is located just across the street from the ocean for a breathtaking view and beach access.

After reading all the reviews on this site, I was skeptical. My mom had already booked the room, so we went anyway. First off, the place was very clean and there was no terrible smell like a few reviews had indicated. It wasn't a huge room, but it was big enough. It had a coffee pot, a toaster, and a...
