Reviewed 5 August 2014

Our family of five spent a few days enjoying the beach at Old Orchard this July and had our second visit to the Beachwood. Very clean, very convenient, a great pool and very friendly staff. Alyssa handled three or four questions/ concerns within minutes of our arrival. We had visited in October and I was a bit worried about the potential for noise from the amusement park next store. I just never heard it! There are beach chairs and umbrellas available for guests so just bring your swimsuit and you're good to go. The hot tub and pool area are great. There is also a grill area and a simple set of pots and pans/ dish ware in the rooms if you want to eat in. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the bathroom up front to help keep beach sand to a minimum

Couldn't have been more happy with our stay - this is definitely our new hotel for future stays in OOB - we had to switch hotels during our stay this time becuz the Beachwood didn't have another night available ( we booked last minute) and the other hotel was terrible compared to the Beachwood and we paid almost the same
price!!! Rooms are clean and uptodate - pool and hot tubs were perfect and grounds were fabulous ! Don't hesitate to stay here...

We have been to the Beachwood many time and will keep going back.The Beachwood is a home away from home! The staff and owners are always smiling and happy to help. Rooms are all renovated and clean and location is perfect.
I can't wait to go back!
Make sure you book early as it is always full.

After spending a week on Deer Isle a Maine I decided to stay here for 4 nights before returning home. It was wonderful. I came the last week of the season so there were few people here as I do not have children and not have wanted to be here during peak season.
I spent the extra money to be ocean front with a shared balcony/deck and it was fantastic. If I were there during the day I would sit out on the deck or lay inside with my door open and listen to the waves crash in. At night I would sit out and listen to the waves and watch the stars. Perfect Location. The staff were very friendly and helpful, it's a great location because you can explore up and down the coast and yet come back to a nice place on the ocean. The rooms are small but equipped with everything you need.

We choose The Beachwood because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor.
Our room was a Queen unit on the main floor.
Nice unit,kindda small but up to date with all amenities including equipped kitchenette.
Downside, I HATE the carpet. It was sorta smelly in the room.
I tried to change rooms but I was told all rooms were booked :(
Excellent location, right on the beach. Chairs and towels are provided.
The pool and 2 hot tubs are nice,clean and well maintained.
Downside the pool is located right outside most rooms as it’s in the middle making it NOISY.
If I were to stay again I would ask for a unit with the nice tiled floor,something on the second floor and on one of the ends farthest from the pool.
Don’t forget your earplugs if you wish to go to bed early or sleep in.

Room Tip: Request a room with a tiled floor,as the units with carpet can be smelly.

We recently spent Father's Day weekend at The Beachwood, our second time staying here. We had a Queen/2 twin Ocean View room. The room is very clean, modern and comfortable. It feels spacious for our family of 2 adults and 1 child with the layout of the trundle twins.
The heated pool and hot tubs are fantastic and perfect considering we didn't have great weather. We travelled with 3 other families and all the kids had a great time in the pools and hot tubs. The motel is right on the beach. Perfect spot for a quiet morning coffee (free in the rooms and reception). They provide free beach chairs which you can grab from the shed by the beach. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We will be staying here again!

Room Tip: The Queen/2 twin rooms are nicer with tile floors rather than the 2x queen rooms that have carpet.

My boyfriend and I were attending an open house at UNE in Biddeford, so we decided to make a long weekend out of it and stay in Old Orchard Beach. After looking at a ton of reviews, I decided to book two nights at the Beachwood. We were so happy with the accomodations that we decided to book an additional night.

We drove up Thursday night evening after work from Connecticut, where the combination of rush hour traffic and road work traffic had us running about ten minutes behind when their office closes. When we called, they were extremely understanding and told us they would see us when we arrived. We were checked in without any problems and with a pleasant attitude once we arrived.

The motel is right on the beach. The rooms have been updated with modern beachy style. There was a full-size kitchen/freezer, microwave, kitchen sink, oven/stove, and plates, cups, pots, pans, silverware, etc. There was a cute towel swan on the bed. The bathroom was small, but set up nicely and up-to-date. Within the basket of shampoo and conditioner, there were two bottles of lotion, two face towelettes, and a shower cap.

The courtyard of the motel has a pool with fountains and LED lights that can be turned on. It is enclosed by a tasteful black fence instead of a chain-link. There are two hottubs. Around the motel, there are ample tables and chairs of various heights and styles. There were even several grills for guest-use. There is a shed that contains beach chairs and umbrellas to be borrowed and used on the beach.

We had a really wonderful stay at the Beachwood, despite the crummy, cold, rainy weather. I highly reccomend staying here if you are looking for a place on OOB!
