We stayed July 3rd thru the 7th. The room was clean clean clean. HUGE porch to sit on and the view was AMAZING!!!!! Step out of the hotel and you are on the beach! Staff was very friendly. I am going to book my stay for next year. One of the best vacations I had in a long time!!!

This was our first visit to the Friendship, based on reviews and the value. We couldn't have picked any better!! For anyone looking for something like the Ritz, this is not your place. However, if you are looking for a family friendly environment, very clean rooms and premises, super friendly and helpful staff, then you will settle right in like we did!! It's slightly farther down the street from the pier than we thought, but we actually liked it better as it's quieter and more private, and the action is easily accessible when you're ready! :) We took our grandsons (12 & 8) and they had a blast. Right on the beach, you have a short walk to the ocean or the beautiful pool. Furnishings are clean and comfortable with entrances on both front and back of the 2-room unit. Delicious coffee and hot chocolate available all day with little Danishes and muffins in the morning. We were so relaxed, we hated to leave and will definitely go back again! There are a lot of motel/hotel choices, but this will be our choice of "home away from home" when we visit Old Orchard Beach! Thank you to the fabulous staff of the Friendship for making our vacation exactly what we were hoping for!

Best place to stay in Old Orchard Beach!! It's clean, right on the ocean. Walking distance to stores and places to eat! The staff is always pleasant and will do anything for you. The owners are incredible people. I love Friendship and the name says it all. Can't wait until next year!!!

We stayed there in the past and decided to stay there again for on a road trip. The staff was friendly and we have changed room easily. The room is small and old but quite clean. The space for our luggages was not sufficient because we were on a trip road for two weeks. The odor of mildew was strong and very unpleasant so much that we had to buy a spray to hide it. We had a nice view on the beach and the location was not bad. The bathroom is in two separate places. The toilet and shower in one and the sink in the other room which is not practical. This place could use some renovations and investigation to get rid of the odor. You can also hear you neigborh snore.

Room Tip: on the upper floor near the beach

As an owner of the Friendship Oceanfront Suites, second generation, my hope is that every guest will inform us if they are not happy with their stay while they are with us. This would allow us opportunity to address concerns they might have with their room so that we may better accommodate their needs. I am on the property daily and would have gladly assisted in any such needs of any guest. I am also confident that my front desk and housekeeping staff are able and willing to take any concerns my guests have very seriously.

We have made many renovations with our property over the last 40 years and are extremely proud of our hotel. I hope that this guest will give us the opportunity to let us help them find a room that is more suitable to their traveling needs. I am confident that they will leave with a much more positive experience.

Sincerely,
Dan Donovan
Owner

Perfectly situated on the beach. I think every room has an ocean view. Clean pool - everything seemed to be very clean here. Short walk down to the beach. Each room has a balcony. Friendly staff and decent price for the area.

We had another place booked down the street and the condition of the other place was really bad. We drove around for a bit and came across the Friendship Suites. What an awesome experience and relief. Easy walk to the beach and perfect location for shopping and eating out. The front desk staff were great.

I used to go to the Hotel when I was 5yrs old with my family and loved it. Many years had passed and now with a family of my own it seemed only natural to share those same memories with my own children. Now here we are 8yrs later and still going back twice a year for a week with the kids. The location cannot be beat, the Hotel it is by far on the nicest stretch of the beach with white flour like sand. We always stay on the 1st floor so that the kids can just run outside in the morning. Believe me it is so nice to be right on the ocean when you have to drag down beach chairs and toys.
The property has a brand new pool which is now very kid friendly and the center of the U shaped Hotel has an awesome grass area for the kids to play where you can break out your beach chair and watch them run around. The rooms are very accommodating with an option of; there is a bedroom that has an entrance to the parking lot side of the building very convenient for bringing in your bags. The bedrooms come provided with either a king or two twins. The bedroom also has a small sink and closet as well as a dresser and small TV. There is a door which leads to the living room that has a hide a bed, eating table with two chairs a small bar fridge, microwave and a small sink. At the sink area there is a two door cabinet where you can store and dry foods. Off of the living room is a small bathroom, note that there is no bath and only a shower with a lower than average shower head but being 6ft tall I have never had an issue. Sliding patio doors from the living room get you to the center green space and pool. We have never staying on the 2nd floor but for a small charge you can opt for a second floor room. I imagine you might have a better ocean view from there but with our kids we enjoy the first floor access. There are also two BBQs on site which we make great use of, it is great to have a view of the ocean which cooking a good steak!
The office is open daily at 8am and the kids cannot wait for it is they have a selection of muffins and danishes daily as well as what seems to be an unlimited number of hot chocolates  for the kids. There is also fresh coffee served daily and in the morning you can pick up a local paper. All rooms are no smoking which we like; there is a smoking shelter on the property if people feel the need.
Over the past 7 years we have seen many improvements such as new TVs, Mattresses, bed spreads air conditioning units; the location is always clean and the staff are extremely accommodating (family owned). We have recommended this location to many friends and coworkers, and every time before we leave we book our next stay, now looking forward to our next trip down in June 2013!!
