“Best place on the beach!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

My husband and I have been going to The Beachwood every September since 2011. We chose this spot because we have family that stays here also and we fell in love with it the first time we saw it. When we got married we knew where we wanted to spend our honeymoon at it was on the beach at The Beachwood. This really is an amazing place to stay with a fun and beachy atmosphere. The owners are friendly and take very good care of the facilities and rooms. We stay in the cottage on the end facing the ocean and it has the most spectacular views I have ever seen and we have been to a lot of places. The pool is warm and clean - there are two hot tubs that offer plenty of room for all. I would highly recommend The Beachwood to anyone looking for a fun, romantic and great beach experience!

Room Tip: Make sure to book one of the rooms on the end for awesome beach views.

You can't pick a better hotel!m This being just our second annual weekend trip to OOB, we knew this was the only place to stay. The first time we didn't stay here and still enjoyed this amazing place, but we were very envious. This year we decided to book our trip here and will return every year from now on. I can not stress enough the customer service, all the staff from front desk to housekeeping, how incredible they all are. The amenities as well are first class! Just steps away from the beach to the pool and jacuzzis. Already looking forward to next year and we just checked out this morning. You can't go wrong with The Beachwood in any way!

We've stayed at The Beachwood several times and absolutely love it. Location is great and you can walk to everything. They are right on the beach. The rooms are exceptionally clean. The owners are very nice and they provide beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. We went in July and are going back in August.

I stayed here last summer with a couple of my girlfriends during a getaway and somehow forgot to review this gem of a motel, so I am doing so now.

My two girlfriends were up from Georgia and West Virginia and we decided to do a weekend at the beach. I grew up at Old Orchard Beach on family vacations and we always stayed at the Wave, my whole life. However, now that I am choosing the location, I do tend to prefer more deluxe accommodations and fell in love with this place online. Trust me, there was no let down or love lost upon arrival.

From the moment we checked in, we felt at home. John was so nice and when I inquired where exactly to park, he came outside to show me and help us with our luggage. The room didn't disappoint at all. It is tight, but more than ample for what we needed. It had a full scale kitchenette, two beds, a table with four chairs, a flat screen television, and a modern bathroom.

We spent the whole day at the beach and then came back in the evening; we actually cooked a meal and then went out exploring. The location is amazing! It's literally right next to the amusement park, pier, and all the attractions. After exploring, we enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi's.

This hotel literally feels like a resort, but everyone knows your name. They offer so many little amenities in addition to all the standard ones; beach side barbecue's, chairs, umbrellas, etc. I really can't say enough about this place and I've told everyone what a great place this is to stay. We never wanted to leave! We'll be back!

Rooms were clean and exactly as pictured. Descriptions of views and baloney maybe a little generous. You can not see a light house without a telescope. The views from the balcony are of the other side of the motel, unless you turn your head and the balcony is a walkway to other rooms. Better to either get a room at the end near beach, better yet one of the 8 end rooms which are semi-private or else the first floor rooms would have been just fine, which are listed without the view. The beach is awesome, jacuzzi great and try the Irish place for food on the Pier. Amusement park is behind one side of the motel, not sure if noise would be a factor as park was closed when we were there.

Room Tip: The second floor has four rooms at the end with amazing views and large deck that is shared only wi...
