trip to Maine in Sep
hey JoniL, what's your budget? if you're looking for oceanfront you could consider Residence Inn, the Hilton Garden Inn (Downtown Waterfront), or even the Portland Harbor Hotel.
btw, since you're going to be in the Portland area, you may as well celebrate Capriccio. Ogunquit celebrates this event in September with an annual kite race and two-week-long festival of the arts called Capriccio. Also, it's worth adding Fort Knox to your itinerary. Each year in September they do a cool Medieval Tournament with lots of music and foods.
stay in Ogunquit
if you are looking for an oceanfront hotel I would suggest staying at the Anchorage Inn or the Norsemen Hotel in Ogunquit. The Anchorage Inn is right on the Mariginal Way and withing walking distance to Ogunquit Beach, while the Norsemen Hotel is right on the beach.
venture off in Maine
September should be not as touristy around Portland as in July/August, though because it's the fall foliage season you can still expect decent crowds. When traveling to Maine I normally stay in the Wiscasset area or out on the peninsula in places like Harpswell village, Monahegan Island and Rockland.
