Sandpiper Beachfront Motel
Reviewed 2 November 2013

My husband and I have been going to the Sandpiper Motel for five years, and will continue for many more. The motel is family-run (onsite), very friendly and accommodating, very clean with well-kept, comfortable rooms and, property and facilities. It's right on the beach with two large patios - tables, chairs, chase lounges, barbecue grills - perfect for sunbathing, enjoying a drink, reading or playing a game.. The rooms have kitchenettes with a microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, dishes, silverware, pots and pans - all you'd need if you choose to cook in. The beds are comfortable, and the sleeping is easy with the sound of the ocean just outside your window. The are chairs and a small table outside each room to view sunset, sunrise, the ocean, the beautiful views, etc, and the end rooms have a picture window facing the ocean as well as a private patio. The beach is clean and sandy. It's a short walk to the heart of Old Orchard, either on the sidewalk or on the beach to the pier. There are many restaurants within walking distance, and we particularly enjoyed walking to Beach Bagel each morning for breakfast and a newspaper. But the motel also serves coffee and donuts or muffins each day. The room rates are very reasonable, even in-season, given the beautiful location.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms offer a more expansive view of the ocean, and the two end rooms have a picture wi...

This was our first time at the Sandpiper and we are already looking forward to coming back next summer. One thing I particularly enjoyed was that we could leave the window open at night and listen to the ocean as we fell asleep. It's a lovely hotel just a few footsteps away from the sand but I would say what makes this hotel a step above the rest is the staff. They could not be more friendly and helpful. I enjoyed talking with the owner's son-and I learned quite a bit about Old Orchard Beach into the bargain. If you are looking for a clean, quiet hotel with a friendly staff, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor have a great view of the beach.

Very, very nice. My friend and I just stayed there last weekend, and they are awesome. Rooms are super clean. coffee and donuts in the morning. The price is excellent. We are booking for next Summer, hope to go two times. We just enjoyed, can't say how at home we feel now, they treat us like their Summer family. My friend has stayed for many years we go every year now, and next year hope to make it twice. Just a super nice place to vacation.You can ask Mike anything he's glad to help you. Wouldn't stay anywhere else at OOB. Sandy & Faith.

Room Tip: It's so close to the pier, but far enough away to enjoy the calm sounds of the ocean, you can st...

After 10 years of trying this motel and that one, this cottage and that one at Old Orchard Beach, we chose to try the Sandpiper this past week – having found it through walks on the beach. Booking our week-long September stay in late July, the owner's son couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly, assuring us we'd have a lovely ocean view. He didn't disappoint. Despite arriving during a busy OOB weekend, he saved us a great room on the second floor with a lovely southern view of the ocean. Rooms are about the size of a regular motel room, so frankly, roomy for the amount of time you actually spend in your room. We've stayed at much more expensive oceanfront motels in OOB and barely had enough room to turn around. We had what we needed – a mini fridge, sink, a place to cook, microwave and other kitchen necessities. Plus, plenty of windows – all of which provided the most delightful sound of waves crashing on the beach. Having recently stayed elsewhere where the bathroom was smaller than the tiniest of clothes closets, we were happy to have a full bathtub/shower combination. Beds were surprisingly comfortable considering that you are gambling on comfort whenever you stay anywhere. We slept very well. We had time to enjoy the lovely private patio as well, which provided some quiet, downtime at the end of the day while we watched the sun go down and the moon rise with front row seats. The sunrises are to die for. The owner's son, Mike, was so friendly and accommodating that we not only booked again for next year, but were compelled to stop at his family's Greek olive oil (and more) store on Route 1 in Saco. You don't go to OOB to stay at the Hilton, you go for the views, fun and downtime and the Sandpiper provided just that. Five stars means we no longer have to search around OOB for the best place to stay – we've found it.

Room Tip: For the best views, request a room on the top floor, though you do get views on the first floor.

I just want to thank the Sandpiper motel for such a great visit. The owners and their son were so friendly and very helpful. We had 3 rooms and all of them were clean and updated. We have stayed there before and we will stay there again. We were so blessed to be right on the ocean.

Room Tip: Rooms at the end have apartments.

What a wonderful place to stay right on the beach . I read the other comments it's a family run motel very warm and courteous .The rooms very clean , the owner will do anything to accomodate his guests, we asked for a toaster -no problem ,wine glasses etc etc .The patio overlooking the beach is great . We were thoroughly satisfied and booked for next year.The owner Mr.Rioux speeks French a bonus for people from Quebec !!!!There is a private little bridge to the beach so it is less crowded in front of the motel.All in all a fantastic place so close to the beach .!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are fine .
