Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Open for over a century, Ashworth by the Sea is a historic seaside hotel set on the beachfront in the lively coastal town of Hampton Beach. It has hosted the likes of Richard Nixon and Johnny Cash in its heyday and still has a charming historic feel, despite renovations in 2013. It’s a great option for a family vacation -- many rooms have fold-out sofa beds. There’s also a heated pool with a retractable roof for year-round use, and the beach is right across the road, flanked by a three-mile newly revamped boardwalk with arcades, saltwater taffy stalls and restaurants.
There’s plenty more to keep you occupied in town -- visit the Blue Ocean Discovery Center (10 minutes’ walk south) to learn about sea life, or attend a live concert at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. Local family-friendly attractions, like the zoo at York's Wild Kingdom, are within a 30-minute drive, and a hike in the Hampton Salt Marsh Conservation Area is highly recommended -- it’s just a 10-minute walk north of the hotel.
Back at the hotel, Breaker’s is a casual option for lunch and dinner, with big ocean-facing windows, a dance floor and specialties such as clam chowder and New England lobster, as well as the flatbreads and burgers. The low-key Wharfside café serves a classic diner breakfast, including stacks of buttermilk pancakes and fried-egg sandwiches with home fries. At sunset, head up to the rooftop Sandbar (noon - 8 p.m., June-August) for spectacular sea views and live music -- it’s also the perfect spot to watch the town’s weekly fireworks on Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. (during the summer season).
Rooms are simply furnished, with patterned carpets, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, but if you want a fridge, DVD player or cot, you’ll need to request them for extra charge. All rooms overlook the water through large windows, and most rooms have balconies. Upgrade to a suite for more space and panoramic ocean views.
The hotel is closed Sunday-Wednesday during low season (November-March).
