“Best of the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

The Edgewater is meticulously clean, crisp and inviting. Pierre, the owner, met us personally, and offered to drive us to a nearby grocery so we could buy a bottle of wine to have as we sat on the balcony to gaze upon the beach. I would return to this place as often as possible.
We were here with a group of 40, and our every need was anticipated and met. Thank you so much for the awesome service.

Went here this past weekend. Didn't actually stay in the inn but across the street in their town houses. Very spacious and extremely clean. The only two negatives were the train that runs yards away from the hotel will wake you up all night. Also not a lot of linens, tad cold at timesmn

Our stay was very nice. I was so happy to see our room once we checked in..it was so clean and decorated nicely. Jeanne at the front dest was always so nice and polite and even sent us a bottle of sparkling wine and wine glasses for our 10th wedding anniversary. There was also another gentleman working at the front desk in the evening who was very friendly and helpful in finding good places to eat and shop. We are planning to come back next year and will be bringing some of our older family members who are very picky about where they stay.

Room Tip: The 2nd Floor is best as you have a better view of the ocean.

From making the phone reservation to checking in and out the service was easy and wonderful. Staff was always friendly and helpful with whatever we needed.
Our room was closer to the street than to the beach but still steps to the beach so that wasn't a big problem since the motel is located on the beach. I would probably try to book earlier next time around to get a room closer to the beach.
The room was nice and clean with a small kitchenette. I only wished there was more of a dining area instead of just a bar area to make it easier for the kids but considering the rate we got, I think it was still ok, The bathroom was clean and a good size. The beds were ok, could've been a bit more comfortable though. Loved the pictures on the wall of the motel back in the day.
I hated the fact that there was a door between us and the room next door. Just felt weird...
Also the walls were thin and we could hear every noise in the rooms next to us, including some of the conversations when it was really quiet like at night.
Still I would stay here again because it was a reasonably priced stay for a summer vacation and in an amazing location - right by the beach and right in the town of Old Orchard where there are lots of great places to eat and an amusement park nearby!

I spent a girls weekend in August and was so happy with the accomodations. The suite was so inviting and the room was immaculate. It was so convenient to the beach, pool, and the activities going on down the center. I would highly recommend the Edgewater to all of my family and friends!

I have been going to Old Orchard for years & have stayed at many hotels & was pleasantly surprised by how clean this resort is. We just stayed this past labor day weekend.This was very affordable for a holiday weekend which was a welcome to the wallet.. What you see online for pictures is what you get. We were on the 1st floor which was very convenient. We only stayed 1 night but due to the size of the room it would be good for 2-3 nights max. The room was decorated in clean blue & white decor. The beds were hard & did not sleep well but it was for only 1 night. The bathroom & bath area was very clean & nicely decorated w/modern sinks.The parking lot is tight but had no issues. The staff was very friendly & acomodating. We got there early & given a parking spot. They have a locked bathroom to use which was very clean. Our room was ready within an hr even though we were early. This was 2.5hrs before the regular check-in time. It is located close enough to everything & also far enough from the crowds. I would most definitely stay here again.

My husband and I wanted to spend a long weekend last September, 2012, in Maine for our anniversary. Old Orchard Beach seemed the ideal location as we could go north or south and hit some great touristy spots. Having never stayed at The Edgewater, we had no idea what to expect... well, we were pleasantly surprised. The woman who greeted us at check-in was very friendly and proceeded to tell us that we had booked the best room in the hotel. I didn't know what to expect, but when we walked in to our room, I was so happy. We stayed on the second floor, oceanfront, king bed room. It was a corner room overlooking the beach and had windows on the front and side of the room. I immediately opened up all of the blinds and took in the spectacular views! The room was very clean with laminate wood floors and semi-comfy king bed with a charming white coverlet on it. The gas fireplace was actually wonderful to have for the chilly morning. The bathroom was awesome. It has a separate shower/toilet room and then where the sink is located is the garden tub jacuzzi. We loved it! I highly recommend this hotel.

We are scheduled to visit again this September and I am hoping to have the same room! I will update our review when we get back. I hope it's just as good as I remembered.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the oceanfront king room.
