We stayed here for one night for the Maine Lobster Festival. Our pricey basic select room was on floor 149 and it was nice. Check in is at 4:00 and check out is 11:00. We checked in around 7:30 since we had a long drive there from Connecticut, so we didn't get a chance to enjoy all the amenities. They... More

I honestly did not know what to expect. The pictures on the website were beautiful but I had no idea of the fun things to do right at the hotel. I went in early July for a 3 night trip with my husband and 14 year old daughter. My room was large and looked like most of it had been... More

We came to Maine to visit relatives that lived nearby who recommended this property.

Samoset is always sure to please; no matter if your 10 or 40+. The pool, the golf, the restaurants or just sitting in a chair gazing out at the sea. Tons to do or nothing at all. Strongly recommend the cottages. They are amazing and will enhance your family memories!

This is a gorgeous property on the ocean with stunning views. The golf course is first-rate, and the outdoor pool is fantastic. My only issues are price (a bit high) and quality of the room (it was large, but wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom, a screen was torn, and in general it just needs to be updated).
