We loved this little motel/inn! It is within walking distance to everything Ogunquit! Rick was the ultimate host who made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms are bright and cheery and clean. I loved the ceiling fan so we did not need the air conditioner. The only suggestion I would make is that in room hairdryers and shampoo...

Ogunquit is a favorite getaway of mine and I try to bring “new recruits” with me to enjoy its splendor each year. This time I traveled with a friend that brought her very chill pooch along. On outings like this one, there is only one place that comes to mind – The Dolphin Den. Since my last stay, I noticed...

Close to beach with cute rooms. Very dog friendly. Personal attention was excellent. The manager Rick, was great. I will return when I come back to this area. They made us feel very welcome and we were thrilled with the nearby dog park. Great place.

Here's the truth. The host, Rick, couldn't be any nicer. The rooms, they could be. We booked what Rick said was their largest room, and people always ask for it when they return (people return?). The room wasn't even as large in what you might find in a roadside motel. Mind you, this is a converted garage that they turned...

This was my 2nd time staying at The Dolphin Den and it's a great place to stay if you want to bring your dog. It is located on a quiet street but walking distance within a couple short minutes to the down town area to the shops and restaurants. It's very comfortable and rooms are appointed well with nicely kept...

We first stayed at the Dolphin Den in 2013 when we needed to make alternate vacation plans at the last minute. Rick was able to accommodate us and we have been repeat customers ever since!

My boyfriend and I made last minute plans to head to Ogunquit for a short weekend stay. The owner was extremely accommodating and we were able to stay in the cottage for one evening.

Rick and Joe are incredibly welcoming and extremely hospitable. We stayed in the Bottlenose Cottage, a freestanding and cute cabin perfect for a couple! A 3 minute walk from downtown Ogunquit, the Dolphin Den is in the perfect location. It is off the beaten patch on a quiet road, but close enough to all restaurants, shops, clubs, and the beach!...

We called just days before the weekend and were able to get a room with our dog Bella. Rick was very accommodating. The room was very clean with a nice firm mattress.

We made our reservations for the 4th of July last-minute, and the owner was very accommodating. We stayed in the cottage. While it was small, it was the perfect size for two girls and their dog.
