Just got back from 4 nights at the Crest and we had a blast. This year was our third year in a row and I just love the simplicity of this family centered motel. The kids love the play area and the pool and hot tubs. Its great being right on the beach with small kids and not having to lug your beach stuff. Its easy enough to run to the room if you forget something or to make lunch. We just left all of beach stuff in the car in the parking lot which is right at the path to the beach so no sandy toys ever made it to the room. The staff is very friendly and the kids love the free popcorn in the lobby. Its also great being so close to the Pier which is just a short walk away. We came with a group of 6 adults and 3 kids under age 6 and everyone was pleased. At night the adults were able to sit outside on the patio and listen to the waves crashing after putting the kids to bed which was a nice treat. The room and the grounds were kept clean and there are grills to cook on which is handy for hot dog lunches. I think the key to remember here is this is Old Orchard Beach....dough boys and Pier fries, cotton candy and ice cream. It is not a fancy high rise condo and there are no chandeliers or room service which is what makes me love it even more. The Crest and Old Orchard are classic and brings you back to simpler times.
