    Most dog friendly place ever

    Very comfortable and close to the beach where dogs are allowed after Oct 1st, close to everything. The beach suite was amazing, sitting with the dogs overlooking the ocean every morning drinking coffee.

    Amazing Hotel

    We were blown away with this hotel! It was clean, beautiful and everyone was so friendly and welcoming to us and our goldendoodle! Our fur baby was treated like a princess, with a bed and toy waiting for her upon arrival and 2 warm, prepared meals for her to enjoy! She even received dog treats each night with turn down service (we were also given human cookies to enjoy). Highly recommend this hotel for your trip to Maine! 10 out of 10

    Unbelievable

    We stayed here for only 1 night. I wish we could have stayed longer. Absolutely the most dog friendly place we have stayed. Our dog was welcomed as one of the family. We stayed in a Spa suite which was so roomy and comfortable. Our dog ate dinner and breakfast with us in the lounge. Honestly it was like Dog heaven.

    Best yet....

    I can't recommend the Inn By The Sea more. The property is lovely, very dog-friendly and staff is excellent. You can actually dine, in the bar/lounge area, with your dog, which we greatly appreciated. Room service breakfast is also fantastic. We stay most years on our trek to and from Florida. It's always the highlight of our trip.
