Frequently Asked Questions to help plan your vacation and get to know us.
**A quick reminder – Check availability and rates through our Online Reservations. Questions submitted here regarding reservations may not be answered in time to receive your first choice, especially during busy weekends and in season. Thank you!**
Is the hotel walking distance to the beach?
Yes! We are a 10 minute walk to Ogunquit Beach. Leaving from the north end of the Resort, you will walk past the Ogunquit Heritage Museum and Shore Road shops to the Beach Footpath – a scenic stroll to the sandy shore. In summer season, we offer Red Radio Flyer wagons on first come, first served basis to take the littles ones and beach gear.
What other Ogunquit attractions can I walk to?
In the heart of Ogunquit. And we mean it. With our central location, you are just a 5-10 minute walk from Downtown Ogunquit and a 15-20 minute walk from Perkins Cove. Both have unique shops and restaurants to explore. The Marginal Way is only a 5 minute walk from our hotel – you’ll be strolling along the ocean listening to waves in no time. Finally the Ogunquit Playhouse is less than a 5 minute walk so you can enjoy a show and not even have to move your car.
What is included with our hotel stay? Are there Resort fees?
The Meadowmere is an affordable luxury vacation. For that reason, there are no resort fees for access to our many amenities. Just walk right into the health club, jump right into the heated pool, or relax in the Roman Bath.
A continental breakfast is included with your stay in the peak season from May 1 to October 31. Breakfast offers homemade baked goods, fresh fruit, cereal, breads, hard boiled eggs, bagels, and more. In the off season, we will happily recommend a local breakfast restaurant for a resort stay and offer breakfast in our dining packages.
What is the difference in the rooms? And the building locations?
The Meadowmere offers many different types of rooms to choose from. Many of our guests love that they can return for everything from a romantic celebration to a family trip to a getaway with friends.
Standard rooms offer choices of double/full, queen or king beds. Suites offer choices of having a fireplace, jacuzzi or both in room. Family Suites and the Apartment off two separate bedrooms.
The hotel has five locations to choose from. The Main Building is the central most location to amenities and at the heart of the hotel. The West Meadow Building is connected to the Main and overlooks the outdoor pool. The East Meadow Building is detached from the Main and is a quiet location with lovely gardens. The South Meadow Building is connected to the Main and is home to the fitness center and Roman Spa. The Country Squire Building is detached from the Main and is open seasonally with motel style access.
Summer is a popular time to visit Ogunquit – Are there other times too?

A few highlights include: Fall Foliage & Festivals (Early September- Late October), Christmas by the Sea (Early December), New Year’s Eve (With our famous party package), and Patriot’s Day Festival (Mid April). Of course the West Meadow Pubhas entertainment each weekend and we have great getaway packages and specials to Ogunquit – so there’s always a reason to plan a vacation to Ogunquit!

We loved our room from last trip – can we have the same room this trip guaranteed?
We often have our guests fall in love with the room of their stay (we understand!) and request the same room for the next trip. While we make every effort to accommodate such requests, we cannot guarantee specific room numbers – only room type. Hotel rooms often need a little TLC and we wouldn’t want to disappoint guests when such instances occur. We thank you for your understanding!
What is your hotel rating?
The Meadowmere Resort is rated Triple Diamond by AAA and Three Star by Mobil. For a list of press and awards, please visit our News & Press section online.
Do you have smoking rooms?
We apologize, however, all of our resort rooms, balconies/patios and amenity areas, including the West Meadow Pub, are strictly non-smoking. State of Maine regulations say so!
We kindly request that all guests refrain from using the private balcony/patio of their room during their stay. This is for the comfort of all our guests on their Maine vacation and in accordance with Maine smoking regulations. Should a room require a special cleaning treatment for smoking – or any other circumstance – a $200.00 per day of treatment fee applies.
Do you allow pets?
We apologize, however, all of our resort rooms and amenity areas strictly prohibit pets of any kind, with the exception of our guests requiring a certified service animal (We do ask that such cases be brought to a manager’s attention during booking so we may better prepare for your stay). It’s not that we mind our furry friends – However, we must do what’s best for all guests to enjoy their vacation with us. There are excellent Puppy & Kitty Camps in the area – We are happy to make a recommendation.
Do you have function space?
We often get asked about weddings, clubs, events and more coming to visit. The Resort is happy to host your friends and family for the special event you are planning (Please contact group sales at 1-800-633-8718). The Meadowmere Resort can help make a fun, memorable time for all!
