“fabulous location, very reasonable rates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

A friend and I went just got back from a night away at OOB where we stayed at the Sandpiper. The location was amazing (right on the beach)! The room was super clean and having the mini-fridge was a bonus. A lot of other motels in the area charge an arm and a leg and the rooms are only "meh." This motel was great and the rate was very reasonable. The owners were also super friendly. I will definitely stay at this motel again :)

My family is finishing up a three night stay at the Sandpiper and it has been amazing! The beach is right out our door and the motel is close enough to walk to every hotspot, but in a nice quiet section of the beach. The owners greeted us with smiles, recommendations of eateries and really warm hospitality. We will be back in September!

I am very disappointed! The location is really perfect – just on the beach! That’s way a choose it. But the motel …that was our first and last time there. They didn’t even respect our reservation, they debit my credit card but when we arrived our nice room with a nice view was not available so they gave us another one - the last at the corridor! Doubtable cleanliness, holes in the covers, curtains which risk falling!!! When a went to talk to owner his was ‘nice and comprehensive’, but there was nothing to do … He looks so tired, neglecting and lost, doesn’t care a lot for the costumers!
The have there specific clients… everybody is smoking around and all the smoke goes in the rooms, ashtrays are everywhere full of old cigarettes, they never clean it. The motel accepts also all kinds of dogs, one of them had a pee just in front of my door …seems normal, they didn’t clean it and they just let it dry.
There are people that don’t mind for all those detail, but I do, so this is not a place for me and I don’t recommend it at all!!!

Room Tip: the only room that worths is the oceanfront

We read that nasty review so we had to post this comment! There were definitely no bugs at this place!! If anything like that was true, they would definitely accommodate anyone with problems like that, and the place would have been empty when we were there. We stayed at the beginning of July for our 6th consecutive year. We absolutely love the Sandpiper because of its location, view, cleanliness and service. The family who owns it goes above and beyond to make sure we are happy with everything. Our family recommends this place to anybody vacationing in the area.

This hotel needs serious updating. But even worse than that is my family woke up with red marks- which turned out to be BED BUG BITES. We high-tailed it out of there so fast. The owner was very rude and did not even apologize for the infestation. To add insult to injury, he charged us for the night. There are so many BETTER places to stay in Old Orchard Beach, don't even think about staying here.
