We stay at the Sunrise every year in Sept or Oct for a family vacation. It’s like visiting cousins! We have a 9hr drive and the staff have always accommodated our late arrivals. Service is seamless and they are as welcoming in person as they are on the phone. This year they

This was our third stay at the Sunrise and we were not disappointed. We stayed on the third floor and had an awesome view of the ocean. The weather was chilly, but was a nice break from the high humidity we've had and we were able to leave the slider open at night and fall

This is the only place I'll stay when I come to York Beach. I only live 3 1/2 hours away and it's so worth the drive. I found Sunrise Motel 5 years ago when my fiancee's parents wanted to take a trip one last time before they physically couldn't do it. The BEST decision I've

We love to hear when our hard work gets noticed, and that our guests are taking advantage of the new amenities like the Jacuzzi. We look forward to seeing you again!

The lady at front desk was very friendly and that was the highlite of our one night stay. The room was dirty, the carpet was filthy the sliding door had a broken lock and the track was filthy too. There is no elevator which would be no problem, but the landings were not in

Hello and thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback on our motel. It is unfortunate that your experience was not up to your satisfaction. We appreciate that you took the time to compliment “the lady at front desk”. While we do have a well-trained housekeeping staff on-site, we understand that some items may get overlooked during the busiest parts of our season. However, is it possible that the room was dated and possibly stained on part of the carpet? We are currently in the middle of renovating the hotel, including the landings and porches. We have done an inspection of all decks and railings this year and those that needed repairing have been done and more will be done throughout the off season. I am certain that if we had been informed of you were uncomfortable we could have relocated you to another room. The towels and creamers are usually stocked depending on the number of beds, however our office hours are from 8am to 11pm. We do leave a phone number for people to call during off hours, in hopes that they use it should there be anything they need. In regards to the weather...When temperatures peak, the breezes off the Atlantic Ocean are refreshing and enjoyable, but the weather in Maine can be as dramatic as the changing seasons, especially on the coast. On the other hand it does provide splendid scenery especially over the water all throughout the year. Again, we were unaware of your specific incident, but certainly wish that it was brought to our attention at the time of your stay, so that we could have rectified the situation. We sincerely hope that this was enough to let you know that we appreciate your business and hope that this incident does not prevent you from considering us should you make a return trip to York Beach.

Stayed here numerous times - it's consistent and always clean. Breakfast provided at the Lobster Cove is always a treat! Shawn is friendly and helpful with local places to visit! Third floor balconies are recommended! Only downside is no elevator.

You need to ask the manager of the inn. I just stayed there.

do you allow pets
They don't. I remember the front desk clerk talking on the phone to a potential guest on the phone and he said they didn't take pets- I also just verified that on the motel's website.
