One of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in! Your staff does an excellent job!   Thank you!


T. Martelli.

Truly enjoyed the quiet of the set back rooms! Lawns & pool & sauna was pristine!  Hope to see you soon!

We were wowed by the Milestone and can’t wait to recommend to friends. I’m handicapped and wish I had known to ask for first floor but everything else exceeded our expectations. The rooms are so fresh and clean. Great Value!We love it here! Everything is perfect.

This is probably my 6th visit in about 10 years-I live in another part of the country-this, like every other visit, has been superb-grounds + rooms are always impeccable, staff friendly + helpful-always my “go to” place in Maine!

It is always a pleasure to stay here and we are never disappointed. The ability to pay attention to detail is exceptional!


A. Lapierre.

It was our third time, at the same period of year and same room! We like to have the same room. We love this place, comfortable, clean and very quiet. Probably come back next year!

What a wonderful vacation and The Milestone was the greatest place to stay!

We love it here! Everything is perfect. Miss the coupon in the Traveler however. We are seniors and watching our pocketbook. However, got a very good rate on the room with breakfast, its a win-win!

Your hotel is very well run. You ought to be proud of your staff, they do their jobs very well. I booked a room at the Milestone for an overnight stay on our way to Boothbay Harbor, just to rest and see what Maine beaches were like. I had no idea what your place would be like, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Your staff went out of their way to ensure my wife and I felt at home and they succeeded. They offered tips on local restaurants, what town was like and how to get around.  They attention to detail and it shows on all levels, from the cleanliness of the room, to the helpfulness of the front desk staff and the level of care put into the breakfast bar. When I come back to Maine, it won’t be to Boothbay, it will be to Ogunquit, and we will be staying at your location. Perfect job on all levels! Don’t change a thing! Thank you. I will be passing this info on to Tripadvisor.

The staff was very helpful and kind, the room was clean, and the location was good. There is a trolley stop at the motel, or driving to eat or sight see wasn’t too bad even in peak times, though trolley is much easier. Trolley does cost $2.00,but was worth it in peak traffic times. Rooms have balconies on the street side which we enjoyed. Continental breakfast was nice and there was music instead of a t.v. which we enjoyed.


Diane. T

We loved our rooms, 231 and 232. they were soundproof and very large. from check in to check out everyone we talked to were kind and very sweet. Kayla was our check in person. lovely girl, as was everyone else! the beds were very comfortable and the quiet of the temperature control was great as i am a light sleeper. my daughter in law asked if the rooms were new as she said the tile in the shower looked like it was never used. the maids were quiet and very pleasant . we have stayed at many places in Ogunquit and wells, one’s on the marginal way and very pricey! we also stayed at gorges grant, but liked this one better. we loved the pool area and spent the afternoon there on our first day. it was also very clean. the mint candy at check in was a very nice touch after eating a large meal. we enjoyed everything about the motel and will stay there again, hopefully this summer as i can’t wait to go back again!!!  p.s. the separate sinks in the bathroom and extra room was soo great.



L. Mathews

Check in staff was great-Most of all YZA was so helpful and pleasant-She was there for me from beginning to my check out. She was the best part of my stay!


Kim T.

Excellent Value! Clean & Comfortable room!


Susan C.

This is the cleanest motel I have been in in a long time! All staff were super!Love this place!


The Forbes

We have come to view The Milestone as our home away from home. We wish you a prosperous season &  pleasant visitors-with no property challenges!  God bless you All!



Love this placed! We’ve stayed there many times, usually twice during a trip going up and coming back fown the coast. It is clean, comfortable, attractive and has the best free breakfast around! There are tons of choices in the nicely decorated, cheerful breakfast room, many very nice amenities in the room with coffee pot, refrigerator, nice bathroom cosmetics. There is a pool.

I’ve stayed here about 10 times in the past 15 years (always in August) and this is my favorite hotel in Ogunquit. The deluxe double rooms are spacious and super clean with really comfy beds, a fridge, flat screen TV, microwave, and Bath and Body Works toiletries. The outdoor pool and hot tub are always clean. The continental breakfast is pretty standard but it does the job – bagels, toast, muffins, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and juice. I love that this hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from Footbridge beach, the best beach in the area. To avoid the $30 parking fee, I drive 1 minute and drop the others off with all the gear, drop the car back at the hotel, and walk back. I also love that the hotel is not in the overcrowded center of town. There’s a trolley stop right in front of the hotel, so I hop on the trolley to get to the center of town, which is exactly a mile away. The trolley frequency can be unreliable at times, and Main street is prone to traffic jams in the summer so if you’re not in a hurry, it’s easier to walk. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

Our room was clean, well appointed and exactly what we were looking for. Our stay was a complete pleasure. The Milestone was within a very short drive from the attractions we wanted to see and the restaurants where we wanted to dine. Sitting on the balcony and being able to watch the sun come up was a treat.


William Jensen

Great experience and convenient location. The hotel staff was friendly and the continental included in the stay was a plus too.


Mary Ann Welch

Mr. Hanson, I personally want to express our thanks for such a lovely time at The Milestone!  We have been to Ogunquit several times now and this is definitely the nicest place we have stayed!  We were totally impressed by the cleanliness, professional (yet very friendly) staff and overall “nice place”!!  Thanks again!

We were very happy about getting a room, and our stay was fabulous! Room was clean, friendly, accommodating staff. Definitely will stay again & share our experience!

Iris W.
Thank you, Mr. Hanson: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in Maine for the day and not sure we were going to stay overnight but brought an overnight bag with us just in case. After doing a little shopping we decided to find a place to stay and the Milestone had a vacancy. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was peaceful and quiet, the room was clean and the staff pleasant. We will definitely put the Milestone on our “places to stay list”. Best regards, Iris Whitehead

Jessica T

Cleanliness is very important to me + the milestone excels in this regard. Our stay was perfect! Thank you!

We have been coming to the Milestone for several years I will never forget the first time and the meals we had across the street at Vinnys ?? I think that was the name We went a few times after but one time was when the owner was sick …very sad Times have changed but the Milestone has not. Just to let you know your staff are top shelf..everyone in the office..desk..maids .. Gardener..the guys at the pool in the morning and the ones doing work in the new rooms the very best .. I know because I run a small business The staff got a kick out of us cleaning our trays in the morning at your wonderful breakfast..just the way we are We are not globetrotters but hope to see you this fall Hope you have a busy summer and I bet that front will look good after the paving

Diane & Mike R

Kirk C.
The Milestone was perfect for our weekend getaway! LOVED our stay here and will be recommending it highly!

Sreekanth R
We were very impressed by our stay at Milestone. Your staff, room quality, location, availability of parking are all excellent. We were traveling with our two year old daughter and she enjoyed the room and the pool 🙂 The room quality was excellent, we were amazed at how spacious and clean the rooms were. The wi-fi and TV programming were also good. We also enjoyed the breakfast. Since our daughter has strawberry allergy, your staff were very quick to get us another flavor of yogurt so that our daughter could enjoy. The front desk staff were also very courteous. Our only suggestion to improve would be to provide a couple of bottled water in the rooms – even if you add the $2 to the bill or the room rate, no one will complain!
