We booked this place on the reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were right on with the management being friendly and helpful. The room was equipped with everything one would need. We came on motorcycle and was glad to hear there was a washer and dryer to use on site.

There was a Kerig coffee machine in our room. We were told if we wanted a different flavor, we could switch it out from a selection in the lobby. The pool was clean and the beach right near by. There were great places to eat just a block or two away. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled as a couple

We spent four days on a schooner in Maine and on the way back we needed a nice place to clean up and relax. We drove into Old Orchard, pulled up TripAdvisor and called the Beachwood based on the ratings. Checked in five minutes later. The ratings were right, this place is great. The room is clean and pleasant and updated, Keurig coffee maker and a big variety of cups in the office, complimentary. Nice clean bathroom, high def tv, everything you need for hanging out on the beach -- complimentary; good A/C, grounds well kept, and the other reviews are right too on the friendliness of the staff. We can throw a baseball to the beach and the amusement park, walk to lots of places for dinner, nice laundry room for all our clothes that smelled like "schooner," nice kitchenette with new appliances and slate tile backsplash, real cream and ceramic cups for the coffee, free wifi. They even leave you a folded towel swan or monkey or bird on your bed like a cruise ship. It's true that most rooms don't actually face the beach, but close enough -- we can still see it through our window. They even have a raised table and chairs outside the room --comfortable and you can hear the ocean. There are lots of tired, kind of worn out motels at OOB but this is not one of them. Excellent choice, we got lucky.

Room Tip: Second floor is nice, views a little nicer.

I think from the extensive research and seeing in person other properties on the beach, the Beachwood is by far the best. Its updated, modern and clean. It also offers lots of amenities that other properties do not: Keurig brewers in each room, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and sand toys to use during your stay. Also, the office has additional k-cup varities, newspaper, DVDs to borrow and popcorn. Our reservation was for Labor Day weekend, which we made almost 2 months in advance and the only room that was available was a double with limited view. It was room 101, and it was in the back corner of one of the buildings. That in itself wasn't bad because you didn't get as much as the amusement park and street noise, but it was bad because it is right behind the stairs for the upstairs units and all you hear is people stomping up and down on the stairs until very late at night and into the early morning hours. For our next 2 nights we were able to switch rooms into a queen & twin trundle and it was much better in terms of noise factor. Although in both rooms it appears that the walls are quite thin and you can hear your neighbor doing the dishes, opening and shutting cabinets and flushing the toilet, but I think for this type of motel that isn't uncommon. It was only an inconvenience when we were sandwiched between two rather loud groups of people who were traveling together, and would also congregate outside the room and were loud. But that isn't the fault of the Beachwood, but just of inconsiderate fellow travelers.

Each and every staff member we encountered were very friendly, helpful and had a smile. I am truly impressed at the level of service that the mostly young staff gave, they are well selected and well trained and it shows. The rooms were clean as were the grounds, pool and parking lot. The location was perfect as well, a short 5 minute walk down to the pier area attractions. The other thing that I noticed is the room description of the views are a little exaggerated...there are really only 2 rooms that have a good view of the ocean and those are the two on the end...the others you would have to leave your room, go onto the deck outside and turn your left or right to get a view.

We will definitely be staying there again, just hope next time we have more considerate neighbors :-)

August 2013 - our first visit to OOB - choosing the Beachwood put us exactly where we wanted to be --- steps from everything -- the Pier, shopping, restaurants, entertainment, amusement park -- and the most amazing beach! The Beachwood has clean updated rooms - perfectly furnished with all you will need -- free use of beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. A heated pool - two hot tubs -- plenty of sitting area. Room has a flat screen TV, stainless appliances, dishes and a Kerig coffee maker. Coffee supplies from the office - wonderful thoughtful touch. Staff is friendly and helpful - ready to answer all your questions. Our only regret -- that we waited so long to visit Old Orchard Beach -- it was a great stay. Just a note about the amusement park next door - we were never bothered by any noise -- the pool closed at 10:00 P:M and the park closed by 11:00 P:M -- plenty early enough. Never an issue.

Room Tip: All rooms are only steps from the gorgeous beach but the second floor rooms will give you a view of...

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!
