While the hotel it's self is suitable for sleeping, don't expect to shower unless you're comfortable soaking in tub water up to your shins because the tub doesn't drain. And when they say breakfast is served til 10:30, don't count on that either. For I just went down at 10:00 and they said they stopped serving breakfast early due to an event. For the price we paid, definitely won't be returning

What a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location! The Union Bluff is located on the beach in downtown York and has plenty of free parking at the rear of the building. The hotel is about a 15 minute drive from I95 and a five minute drive to the Nubble lighthouse. We stayed in room 405 which is a queen bedroom with an ocean front view and a fabulous balcony/sun deck overlooking the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the room came equipped with a fridge, coffee maker and in room safe. The hotel has a nice bar and restaurant and courteous staff. We loved the room and hope to stay again in the future!

I'm here now and staying in the main building. My room is recently remodeled...very nice decor and clean! Parking was behind the building with easy access to bring in bags. I just had dinner in the pub and it was excellent. Great waitstaff and front desk person, too. No ocean view but I didn't pay for one and had it from the pub anyway. I recommend the Union Bluff and would stay here again.

Visited the beginning of Oct 2021 - excellent location overlooking Short Sands Beach in a small town. Quite a few stores / restaurants nearby were closed (seasonal? COVID? both?) Ate @ Lobster Cove just a few minutes down the road with fantastic views (delicious food / friendly staff). Fox’s by the Neddick Lighthouse was also good with excellent fish chowder. Our room was a good size (in the “motel”section) and was clean and quiet.

The room we had was “ocean view”. There was a sliding door in and out of the room and one window with a window AC installed. Unfortunately our neighbor smoked the entire time outside our door so we could not sit outside or even keep the door open with the screen. Overpriced and very standard.
