It’s a cute place and close to the beach but don’t expect to sleep in - it’s very loud.

my stay was a pleasure. I appreciate a lot all the safety precaution regarding Covid (cleaning, paper request, breakfast...). My room was front of the street but still very quiet and nice.

What a find Higgins Beach Inn was for us! This is an old school historical beach hotel that has been updated beautifully. The rooms are small, but very tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The restaurant serves a lovely breakfast and dinner. The staff was wonderfully accommodating. We had to push our stay a night due to the damage Tropical Storm Isais caused at home. The staff worked to accommodate our new dates. We can’t wait to return to Higgins Beach Inn. It’s the best kept secret in Southern Maine.
