“Home Away From Home!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We have been living in a Townhouse at the Concorde for about a month now while our home is being built. As soon as we told Claire (one of the owners) we needed not only a two-month rental but also one that started during the busiest weekend of the year (Labor Day), she made sure we were able to stay at her motel. The townhouse is comfortable and spacious. The staff is friendly and courteous and always ready to help you out. Even though we are looking forward to moving into our new home, we've enjoyed living here and will refer as many people as we can to The Concorde.
Thanks, Claire!

I admit I'm not a Two Star Hotel Girl. Gotta be a Four or higher. I aim to be spoiled.

Kudos for the super nice owners that run the place.
The town houses are spacious.
Relatively clean but could use a thorough cleaning. Not a fan of former guest hairs in the bathroom.
Dated carpet and furniture but what do you expect for Old Orchard Beach? Its the market here.
The most disparaging part was the sign at the door asking guests to empty the trash and bring it to the main building and strip the beds leaving linens and towels in one pile before check out. Huh? We're PAYING guests, right? Isn't housekeeping responsible for cleaning?
Two stars for a two star. There you have it.

My husband and I took our 6 year old to OOB for the 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the suite, (#8) and it was cute, very small, but cute. If we had anyone else with us, there really wouldn't be much room to move. There is a kitchenette with a full size fridge/freezer, plenty of cabinet space, a coffee maker, microwave and an oven/stove; a double bed; and a pull out couch, where our son slept. We needed to make sure the we closed the couch up as soon as we got up so we could walk. I brought up some food so we utilized the kitchen often and saved some $$ also. The bathroom was clean and we had maid service everyday to freshen up the room. The pool was very nice too - closed in, so anyone walking by couldn't stare at you while you were there. This motel is about a mile or a little less to the main strip, but we didn't mind. The beach is across the street which is convenient as well. I will say that the owner, Claire, was a peach!!!! after the first night we were there, a group of people checked in on the side of us and was VERY loud and ignorant...they left beer bottles and played their music extremely loud the first hour they were there. Claire came out and made it clear that it was a residential property and that type of partying would not be tolerated. She then asked us every day after if it was loud, or if we were disturbed. (We weren't but it was nice that she was concerned).

I would stay again, but ask for a bigger room.

Room Tip: if you can afford it, reserve a townhouse if you are traveling with more than 3.

My wife and I have stayed at the Concorde hotel for five years now, and we are very thankful we found this clean and comfortable place to stay. It is nice that it's only a couple of blocks off the beach, and not right down by the pier where it gets very crowded. We have been going to O.O.B. for over 30 years and found Claire and Pauls' "Concorde Motel" the best !!!!! Just great people to deal with, including the housekeepers. Pool and hot-tub adds to it also.... we will be there again in July 2013.

I have stayed on and off at the Concorde Motel since 1987. I have always found the units to be immaculate and very comfortable. Also, the beach is about 200 yards away which is very convenient. And Claire and Paul are very accommodating owners and have owned and run the Concorde for over 40 years. I would recommend the Concorde to anyone and be proud to do so.

We rented in hopes of staying awhile . We were looking to build / buy a new home.we were promised access to Internet to be able to keep up with work only to find that Internet was practically NONE.and after speaking with the cable Internet company was told that Internet was not being payed for, for the entire hotel it was only in one room. Also there were renters prostituting him self & and there were drug ppl living there it was very unconfortable also maintenance is poor.garbage was all over the place . Also any time I called to ask about anything I was just treated and spoken to horribly..
We left almost a month ago. And have not yet received our deposit. We gave a 400.00 deposit.and left the place the way we found it and took pictures for our records. We feel she's only interested in collecting money..it was a night mare..

Reviewed 27 August 2012

This motel is conveniently located about a 10-12 minute walk from the center of town, so it is in a quiet, low-traffic area. It is also just about a 3 minute walk from the beach.

As far as motels go, this one is fine. Kitchenette functional (limited bowls/plates/cutlery, not complete - no cookie sheet etc.) etc. Bed & pullout comfortable. Clearly has not been updated in some time as walls/ceiling show water stains etc. Standard for a small independent motel (not a large chain).

Clean and basic.

Basic room is OK for up to 4 people (2 adults/2 kids). Some rooms have adjoining room without kitchenette for larger families.

Kids liked the hot tub and pool after the beach.

The nightly rate for a simple motel room seems to me excessive, but this is likely the going summer rate in Old Orchard Beach.
