“Fantastic and CLEAN!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2008

This was our first and certainly not last trip to OOB. The Seadrift Motel was great! Missy(the owner) was extremely nice and the staff keep the rooms tip top. My husband and I along with our two young children loved the heated pool, quick walk to the beach and pier and the lovely ultra clean room with kitchenette. We will return to the Seadrift for many years to come!!

Nothing bad to say about this hotel. The owner and her mother are friendly and answered every questions we had. Their two dogs, Frankie and Lola ads to the charm of the hotel. The rooms are very clean, they even wash the carpet each morning. This is not the first place in Old Orchard I went, but this is definitely the place where I will be going back every year! I recommand it for everybody, family or couple that want to have a great vacation!

If you are looking for a Motel in Old Orchard Beach I would highly recommend the Sea Drift Motel. The Motel is VERY CLEAN has a very nice pool and is a 2 minute walk to a great beach! I have been going to the Sea Drift for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. When you come to the Sea Drift you will come back again and again!

  • Liked — Great Beach, very clean Motel, wondeful place to bring the family
  • Disliked — I've never had a bad expereience at the Sea Drift, I have been going there when I was Single and now married with children

We have just returned from our usual summer stay at the Sea Drift Motel in OOB, Maine. As it has been for the past 10 years, it was a pleasant stay. The Proprietor of the motel is always very cordial and does her best to make us feel at home and remember her guests' names, etc. Accomodations are clean, and on the one occasion when we felt the house cleaning staff did not do a good job preparing our room for our arrival, the family that runs the motel made sure to immediately address the issue and had our room re-cleaned immediately. The property's grounds are beautifully maintained. You can tell the family has a flair for style and keeping their motel looking "updated" and well-maintained. It is by far the prettiest motel and grounds at OOB. The pool is always clean and allows for lots of space for all guests to enjoy a swim and/or lunch and dinner by the pool. The kitchenettes in the rooms are so handy and save us so much money (and calories) as opposed to eating all of our meals out. Finally, you literally walk across the street and you are on OOB's beautiful sandy beach. Where the Sea Drift is located, you can enjoy a nice relaxing and quiet time on the beach. But, if you want some hustle and bustle or some nightlife, you can get there in just 10 minutes on foot. We've already booked again for next year! We hope you'll be as happy at the Sea Drift as we have always been.
