Took a babymoon with my husband! Rooms are clean, staff is nice. Floors are paper thin and our lovely upstairs neighbor sounded like a hippo, can hear every step, toilet flush, and the obnoxious sound at sunrise of the sliding door opening and closing. Make sure to ask for the top floor so you can actually get some sleep!

I booked a room here after my wife said she really wanted a room with an ocean view. I had stayed here about 20 years ago. I remembered it being old school which I was unsure the wife would care for but knew it was a killer location to view the ocean. We arrived and checked in. The woman at...

This hotel is dated but perfect fo a get away. Donna was at the front desk and welcomed us as if we were old friends. Our room was a "suite" but that was a stretch of an imagination. It was clean and a real comfy bed with extra pillows. The views are spectacular.

We love going back every year to The Atlantic Oceanfront Motel. It is just steps away from the beach, close to shopping and great restaurants. Very relaxing, especially on the balcony. We always try to get 2nd floor poolside 2Q with a private balcony. Staff is wonderful and attentive to their customers. The beds are nice and comfy, rooms are...

The Atlantic is a long time favorite of my wife and I. We've been regulars for 20 years. Although the motel is slightly dated, it is very clean and the owners are friendly folks. The 2nd floor balcony's are private and the view is spectacular. Step off the stairs and you're on the beach. Sunrises are great.

We recently spent a long weekend at our favorite place in southeast Maine, choosing a ground floor oceanfront room (convenient to the garage and the beach). The rooms are well maintained, as is the property in general. There was great surf at the time (good for watching and listening).

My wife and I stayed here 9/23-9/26. You can't beat its location-just steps from the ocean. We stayed in an oceanfront Queen room. Our private balcony door opened up to a beautiful view of the ocean and beach. Rooms were definitely adequate and well maintained. Lots of small shops and a couple of restaurants were nearby. Only drawback we could...

Comments are from off-season visits(3 so far) only (before Memorial Day or after Labor Day): Pros: Quiet, Beach views are unbeatable. Biggest room balconies of any of the hotels at/near the beach. Always book an ocean front room + balcony! Speedy wi-fi! Rooms have been clean. Bed/bath lines are better quality than what I've seen in 5-star hotels in Boston/New...

Stayed here in July for my annual vacation. If you want to be right on the beach, this is your place! I prefer the oceanfront rooms (but they get booked fast). But no matter what room you stay in you're just steps from the sand & beach. The owners are wonderful as are their staff. The rooms are comfy and...

We just spent 5 days at Atlantic Oceanfront and it was great! Our boys, ages 11 & 8, loved the beach & pool which were both just steps away from our room. The room was clean and the staff were polite and helpful. We'll definitely be back.
