We spent a night here as a special birthday treat and it was a pleasant surprise. Super clean, renovated, kitchenette was good. We had a 3rd floor king room with private balcony. The view is priceless. Free breakfast at the Lobster Cove is a 5 min walk, if that. The price was so affordable, even though it's considered off season,...

I spent the weekend of May 6th at the Sunrise Motel in York Maine and I can't wait to go back! The room was super clean, comfortable and the perfect price for an off season esxcape from the city. The Atlantic ocean was directly across the street and the crashing surf provided a beautiful view outside my window. I stayed...

We pre-paid for our room, but no one mans the desk in the off-season - there's just a note with numbers to call for service. We waited 90 mins. for a callback, but were on a walk and missed the call. No voicemail explaining what to do. Luckily, we saw a desk in the lobby area and found our key...

Spent one night at the Sunrise Motel while on a site seeing trip through New England in Oct 2015. The room had been recently renovated and was very nice. New paint, carpet, tile and furniture. Had a kitchenette and a jacuzzi tub. Very comfortable and all rooms have a view of the ocean which is just across the street. Shawn...

Belying an unassuming exterior and reception lobby, Sunrise has beautifully appointed rooms, each with a view. Rooms are beautifully maintained and the staff is friendly. The ocean is just across the street and you can hear and see the tide or step out for a walk along the beach. We stayed just after Labor Day when the town was quiet...
