This is our second summer visiting the Aspinquid but our first time on Trip Advisor. We received a card from the front desk staff stating if we liked our stay to visit this website. We did thoroughly enjoy our stay so here we are. As mentioned before, this is our second year. Last year we stayed in an efficiency room which was very nice with its own balcony and river view and this year we had a room in the motel building with a lovely view of the tidal river and dunes. There was a balcony to enjoy the view and although it was a shared balcony, we had no issues with neighbors crowding our space. The room had two double beds and a remodeled bathroom. There was a small fridge as well. These rooms are close to the pool and they also overlook a pleasant garden area as well as the river. We really had no issues whatsoever with our accommodations.
The location deserves 5 stars on its own. One can simply park your car and forget about it for the duration of your stay. Just over the bridge which spans the river are both the river side and main ocean side beaches. The property is located on Beach Street which is the road that connects the main town square to the ocean and the Aspinquid is halfway between both. It is extremely central to the area's many dining choices, the small grocery and bakery and the unique shops along Main Street. One can also enjoy a trolley ride to Wells or nearby Perkins Cove for more dining choices although there are plenty in Ogunquit to choose from.
Lastly, the staff is unbelievably pleasant and helpful. The same two women have been running the front office for a couple of years and they greet you upon arrival like an old friend. Such touches make it even more enjoyable and we very much look forward to returning next year. I look forward to reviewing some of the great restaurants we visited as well. Until next time, thank you for another pleasant stay.

Room tip: Motel second floor units have great tidal river views!

The Aspinquid offers the perfect location for enjoying the beach as well as all that Ogunquit has to offer. Amenities include a pool, fitness room, laundry and outdoor as well as indoor cooking options. Our rooms were clean and comfortable....our favorite place to stay in Ogunquit. We only wish they had a longer season!

Dear gail k,

Thank you for posting a review of Aspinquid at Norseman Resort. The Aspinquid is a seasonal property but Norseman Resort, right on the beach, is going to be open all winter. We are going to be offering some great winter rates; which will give you a chance to come enjoy the splendor of the beach in the late fall and winter season.
Thanks again!

Unbeatable location. Woke up to views of the Tidal River and ocean. 5" walk to the beach, center of town and Marginal Way. Friendly and helpful people at the desk. We lost one of the keys (not a card key) and there was no replacement charge. Outdoor pool nicely heated. Only issue is that rooms are a little tired although well maintained and clean. Planning return visit soon.

Room tip: 2nd floor rooms have best views

I'm sad to say we have been staying at this hotel every summer for the past 5 yrs. Have always loved the location and the family type feeling in the hotel
This year was very different
Too many things to complain about but the most upsetting was that 2 dresses were taken from my room, I'm guessing while being cleaned
The owner who had always been great basically said she didn't know what to tell me. Did nothing to try and rectify the situation, very dismissive. As a buisness owner, could never imagine handling a situation this way, especially after the first part of our stay was semi traumatic. Overall, the hotel has changed since we started coming years ago
Will not be returning!!!!!

Dear Karen R,

Thank you for taking the time to write. I'm very sorry that you felt that the front desk clerk did nothing to try and rectify the situation. Your claim to theft was taken very seriously by the front desk staff, management, and housekeeping. All departments looked everywhere for your missing dresses; thinking that perhaps, they may have been scooped up with towels or bedding during the cleaning process. We looked under the beds, in closets, in drawers, we sorted through laundry, housekeeping closets, your balcony and even the kitchen cabinets in an effort to help you. I assure you a claim like this was taken very seriously and every step possible was taken to locate your dresses.
We are very sorry to hear that a guest of 5 years will not be returning because of misplaced clothing. If you locate your dresses and want to come back; we will only be too happy to be here for you.
Best Regards
