We stayed with Paul and family at the Crest the last week of June 2013. This is the 4th or 5th year for us.. for other parts of our family, who come at the same time (we tend to take over a third of the hotel) it is their 10th? 15th? year. As always Paul and family and staff are helpful and accommodating, the rooms are clean and bright. This year we were surprised by a remodeled bathroom and a new window in our room (215). Nice job! Playground, grills, picnic tables and pool that is perfect in any weather (it rained for 5 of the days we were there, but who cares..) make it wonderful to return to every year. 5 minute walk to "the centah" (palace playland) and 1 minute walk to one of the friendliest restaurants - The Barefoot Boy - as well as Mainely Wraps.. make staying there easy. Cant wait to return next year..

Went back to the Crest Motel at OOB, ME in June for another girls' weekend away and it was wonderful. They had updated the rooms and I must say they are awesome. Very comfortable and always clean. The staff and owner are the nicest around. We will be back.....soon I hope!!

We actually stayed at the Beach Comber. This was everything we expected. The indoor pool and hot tub area was super clean and well organized. Saved out first rainy day we had. Perfect for the kids and adults. The staff was friendly and professional. The rooms were exactly as stated and pictured. Nothing fancy, but meticulously cleaned. The wi-fi was weak at our location across the street, but much better at the Crest. The beds, almost ready for an upgrade, but okay for a short stay. All in all, a great experience and price for the facilities provided...grills, playground, pool, hot tub, and great staff. We will definitely be returning!

Absolutely perfect beachfront Mom & Pop motel in the center of the action in OOB. Park the car and walk to just about any restaurant, shop, or attraction that catches your fancy. Rooms are clean, reasonably priced, and perfectly functional. Could use a little updating perhaps, especially the bathroom, but we were on the beach too much and not in the room enough to care about that. Indoor pool and hot tub are nice and a short walk through the back parking lot deposits you right on the beautiful beach. Very family friendly-basketball hoop, swing set, and lots of toys for toddlers not to mention affordable frozen treats in the office along with free coffee and popcorn-you can also purchase discount passes for Palace Playground from the office. We only had a day and a half here and wished we could have stayed longer. Great place, no complaints, highly recommended, and I hope we can return someday soon.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep late in the morning then request a room away from the pool, or at least on the...

The Crest Motel is a great place to stay. The family run business makes you feel at home and always available for anything you may need. They are in the process of remodeling the rooms. The indoor pool is wonderful; the beach just a few steps away. Going alone, I feel safe and Paul and family always have a smile for their customers and take time to chat and ask how your day is. I try to go a few times a year. Great family place: playground for the kids, grills to use for meals if you so desire, etc. Can't ask for more.

Room Tip: Prefer first floor - no steps to go up.

This was the friendliest motel we have ever stayed at. My new husband & I enjoyed the staff, room, service and location to all of the downtown and beach. It was like staying with family, We did not get bothered so we could enjoy the quiet. If we wanted to go somewhere for the day, the office staff would give us suggestions and directions. Would love to go back and experience it again!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 201 {with the hot tub}. Quiet on that end of building. Can't heard the train t...
