Dog friendly place with class. We stayed for 5 days. My teenage kids didn’t want to leave. The 2 bedroom cove unit was perfect for our family. My kids felt so relaxed and were fine with just hanging out. They never said, I’m bored Dad, what are we doing today? They just went with the flow. Our dogs loved it too. Will definitely go back soon.

I love that our room faces the ocean and that we can just go out and walk to the beach. I also love it more because our little Ranger met so many other dogs in the hotel. He also enjoyed walking all around the beautiful property with scattered benches, firepits and of course the path to the beach. I think that the restaurant is very good as well. I do think that the property needs some updating with the decor as it appears to be getting dated. We had a good stay in the hotel but would not consider this a "destination" hotel.

We just returned from another amazing stay at the Inn by the Sea. From the minute we arrived ( with our dog, Sophie) until departure, everything was perfect! We stayed in a cove suite - loved sitting on the porch for cocktails in the afternoon. The staff goes out of their way to make guests feel welcome and to accommodate requests. Mark was very helpful with dinner arrangements one evening. We love the setting and the comfortable charm of this lovely place. It is well worth the 9 hour drive from home!

I read the glowing reviews and put this on my bucket list, but was hideously disappointed. I should have looked at some of the negative comments and been forewarned. Sky high prices for a mediocre room without a view. Noisy to boot. Staff seemed like they were doing you a favor...and they didn't really want to do it. Everything was very grudging. Cape Elizabeth is nice for one day. It's rural/suburban. There's basically no where else to eat other than the hotel's mediocre, overpriced restaurant. You can take pictures of a couple lighthouses and stroll around some parks with some nice structures. There's a couple lobster shacks. Trust me, for what you pay you can do much, much better. And if you spend more than a day here, you'll regret it.

Our recent stay at Inn by the Sea, May 2021, was perfection. The Inn, the grounds and the view were absolutely beautiful. It is simply a masterpiece. The service was incredible and always accommodating. I cannot wait to return!
