  • Ashworth Hotel by the Sea Hotel, Hampton

Century-old Iconic Hotel on Ocean Blvd, New Hampshire

Built by Colonel George Ashworth in 1912, our historic hotel was one of the first hotels on Hampton Beach's Ocean Boulevard and has served with exceptional New England hospitality for over a hundred years in a vibrant seaside setting. Ashworth by the Sea is New Hampshire's only full-service, oceanfront hotel open year-round. 

We are near the area's most popular outdoor attractions and activities, including movies, fireworks, and live music on the beach, as well as fishing and whale watching, the Casino Ballroom, and the Kittery Outlets. The Ashworth has hosted many special events, including chef-catered weddings, corporate meetings, and retreats held in over 6,000 square feet of our elegant function space. This tranquil retreat is ideal for a romantic escape, a family vacation, or a destination wedding.


Our historic hotel was one of the first hotels on Hampton Beach's Ocean Boulevard. For over 104 years, visitors have enjoyed New Hampshire's only full-service, oceanfront hotel. Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Johnny Cash, and BB King are among the prestigious guests that have stayed with us.
