It's been a pretty common place for our entire family. We usually get 2-3 rooms. We really enjoy our walk down for breakfast (coupons included with stay). Nothing fancy here but can't beat the price for the amazing location. Friendly staff :)

This is not a fancy hotel. The room was clean but small. The bathroom is tiny and the toilet is so small it was uncomfortable to sit on! The beds were surprisingly comfortable. The one thing in the room that really disgusted me was the air conditioning vent. It was covered in dust and looked like it hadn't been cleaned...

Thank you for your comments on the Sea Latch Motor Inn. We heard you! Not only is the old Manor House being replaced with a brand new 3 story elevated bulilding, but we are also renovating the pool as well. We are reducing the depth of the pool to 5' to insure safety. A new shower room and toilet facilities...

The Sea Latch has some age, and has had some noticeable improvement, however there are some needed changes in operations. I did not expect to have to clean the place before we left. And I was surprised that only bed linens were provided. No kitchen or bath towels etc. We had two refrigerators and both were in bad shape, however...

Stayed one night with my son and his friend on the way to my class reunion. I grew up here but it was my son's friend's first time ever at the beach! Chose Long Sands because it is beautiful and this hotel gave us the perfect setting. Steps to the beach and all that beautiful surf. Rates were reasonable for...

This place has a great location, but it has not been maintained. It looks worn, old and tired. We tried saying there again this year, but not so good. Seems a little cleaner this time, but it seems like the owners are just limping it along year after year, waiting for some poor fool to buy it. I suppose it...

Thank you for taking the time to review our location. We're happy to announce that we did, in fact, tear down our old Manor House and replace it with an all new 3-story, all-suite building. We would love to have you back as a guest this season.

Steps from the beach and restaurants. Reasonable rates even in the high season. Staff is super nice. Rooms are - ummmm, average at best. Exterior lock didnt work well, beds felt like they were about to break but hey its the beach and its cheap so......

We stayed just one night. They accomdated us even though they generally like people to book at least 2 nights. The room was clean, comfortable and with great AC. King bed was comfortable, fridge kept everything very cold and the shower was clean, though we had some trouble with water temperature - going between hot and cold and not much...

After reading previous reviews I was not expecting to enjoy this place as much as we did! I made a last minute reservation to stay for one night with my mom and 5 year old son.

Thank you for your response. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Sea Latch Motor Inn. Just to let you that the pool is getting a much needed facelift. We are reducing the depth of the pool to 5' in insure safety. A new shower room and toilet facilities are also part of the project.

Located directly across from Long Sands Beach, this hotel certainly looks nice, but needs some serious updating. I found the rates to be WAY too high for the quality. $170 a night should not have a broken ice machine, a warm mini fridge (no ice cube trays), and mold in the bathroom. When we asked for pool towels, we were...

Our entire family started taking week long trips to York Maine back in 1990 and we have been going back consistently (with the exception of one or two years) since then. We have stayed at the Sea latch since that time and made some incredible memories here dating all the way back to Hurricane Bob in 1991. The Sea Latch...
