While the location of this motel is great, I was definitely in shock of how outdated the rooms are, based on the reviews I read prior to booking my trip. The one bedroom is super tiny. It had a tv, desk, and a bed. The lighting was very low, with an old school fixture of basically a light bulb hanging... More

My husband and I stayed for the last time in Old Orchard Beach at ANY motel let alone this one until some updates are done. Its alot of money for shabby old outdated rooms and the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept on second only to the Beau Rivage nearby.....

Love the deck by the ocean and the location to the beach. The staff were very nice and it is very convenient in terms of walking around in Old orchard beach. We came in randomly on an overnight and they put the 3 of us in a 2 bedroom cottage for the night which at first we thought was a... More

Owner was flexible to accommodate us last minute and the beach was great. Clean. Friendly. Quiet. Stayed in the cottage which could use some updating but cute enough - although I would love to do it over to give it a fresh coastal feel. Deck is great at the beach and bbbqs so you can make your own meal.

First let me say, I love Old Orchard Beach so I would be probably be happy to stay anywhere there but this hotel is wonderful!

The owners, Rioux family make you feel like family and are very accommodating. The rooms are very nice with ocean views and the location is a 5 minute walk from the pier. The beach is only steps from your room. Great place, highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed this place, it is right on the beach. Their patio areas are awesome. The staff was very nice and friendly, we enjoyed chatting with them. Our room had a fridge, microwave, stovetop, etc. The location is within walking distance to just about anything in the area. We walked to the pier and enjoyed the bars & restaurants.... More

Very clean, comfortable room. Beds were just a bit squeaky. Staff are very pleasant and courteous. Loved that the beach was a few steps from our room. Would definately return for next summer vacation.

Family recently stayed for a few nights here - location is good, within easy walking distance to everything. Rooms are quite dated, but clean. Rooms are small, and repairs are definitely done on the cheap side. While right on the beach, there is no pool which is a drawback because ocean water is pretty cold for swimming and on cooler...
