My family and I have been going to the Crest Motel since 1999. It is in walking distance from everything. We are right on the beach, we are down the street from the amusements and the wharf. We can walk to many restaurants. The family that owns the Crest couldn't be more accommadating. The pool and spa is great especially when it rains because it is indoors. I sleep like a baby when I go there. It is very busy because it mainly is families. My grandson couldn't wait each year to see his friends. The same people tend to go year after year.

Stayed at the Crest on way back from Bar Harbor and to see Old Orchard Beach. Nice launching point for activities on OOB. Great location, room was spacious and just right for beach lovers. Not a luxury hotel but great for beach goers who want to be close to the action. Check in was smooth and folks at the desk were friendly and helpful.

Furniture could use some updating but sufficient for beach goers.

The only wrinkle was no one at the desk when we checked out early at 7 am. Didn't know what time the office opened, no posted hours, but left keys in the mailbox by the door, they did eventually find them. Would suggest for hotel to create an early bird check out system for early birds like us. Otherwise, if going to OOB again and want to be near beach would stay again.

I stayed with my parents and my daughter. We had a great time. The pool and spa were fun and being that close to the beach was great. Walk to shops and restaurants was only five min away. Rooms were clean and the staff was nice. My daughters favorite was the free popcorn

Room Tip: I like being on second floor. Dragging luggage was not fun. But the view and breeze was worth it

This hotel was convenient to the pier but it was very busy and not very quiet. The rooms were OK but the beds were awful and in desperate need of updating. There were no hooks in the bathroom which made it difficult to hang and dry towels. The kitchen was very outdated as well. Overall the place was clean and the owners were very nice and accommodating.

My sons (7 and 4) and i had a great time at the Crest Motel! The room was clean. The pool and spa (jacuzzi) indoors were great, rain or shine! Steps from the beach, which is a definite plus! Also 5 BBQ to use; a kid's play area. We rented on the 2nd floor ''Pool side'' which had a view of the ocean from the window (room 212). Very nice to look at with the morning coffee!

I have 3 suggestions to improve guests stay:
- add a toaster to the ''fridge and microwave only'' rooms. A must!
- add towel rackS INSIDE THE TUB AREA for all the towelS and bathing suitS to drip dry. Not enough racks/hooks. With what is there already, it will drip directly on the floor. Not nice!
- add more chairs for the eating area. There should be enough chairs for the room occupancy (i.e. 4 people= 4 chairs!)

Aside from that we had a great time, we didn't want to leave! Love OOB! Will come back!!

Very old property, they do keep it clean but could use updating. TV remote had no battery cover so we had to hold batteries in to get it to work. No plug for sink so to do dishes we had to fill a big bowl with water. No iron or ironing board. Pool and playground are functional but nothing impressive. Dragging luggage upstairs was not fun.

creoob, Owner at Crest Motel, responded to this review, 23 July 2014
Thanks for your review. Sorry about the tv remote, the sink and the ironing board, but these were all easily fixed had you asked at the front desk. Being a beach town we have little request for irons and ironing boards so we keep them on hand in the office. We do strive to keep the place clean and update the units on a rotating basis, in the last 2 years we have replaced 21 bathrooms with tile and new tubs. We are a small family owned property, striving to provide clean comfortable beach accommodations with a family friendly atmosphere. We wish you 5 Stars with all your future travel plans! Paul
