Old Colonial Motel
Ranked #20 of 44 Hotels in Old Orchard Beach
Reviewed 25 June 2014

The room was secured with a key on a knob that was not very good quality. The bed sagged like a waterbed, and all the furniture was quite worn. The blinds did not keep out the early morning sun, forcing my wife to buy a face mask if she wanted to sleep in. To their credit, the room was clean, though we found ourselves wading in several inches of water in the shower toward the end of showering. While this is the only property in town that we could find that accepted dogs, there is NO place to take your pet to do business. One block west there is a beautiful park that actually has a dog park at it, though it's a ten minute walk.
Found a nice dog friendly hotel in Wells (Sea Mist), that we wanted to spend our last evening in Maine at, but this property would not allow us out of our third night on our reservation.

Hi I'm not sure when you stayed or what room but the furniture is new and the blinds we were unaware of the problem and are in the process of changing all the blinds in the motel as we speak. The shower draining slowly we were also unaware of during the stay and would have had the problem corrected right away. There is a small grass strip before the beach that dogs can go do there business unfortunately with the beach and dune grass right there at our property there is very little room to have a large grassy area for dogs

My stay at the Old Colonial Motel was a very comfortable and relaxing one. The environment was clean. At the front of the motel is a heated pool and a hot tub. I stayed in the ocean front room which has its private hot tub and a grill.The room was very clean and fresh. The workers were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back in august...

They are in the process of redoing this hotel and I got one of the rooms recently updated. It's still considered off-season so the rate was lower than normal, I loved the fact that it was right on the ocean and that I could take my dog down to the beach. The hotel staff were friendly and very responsive to my needs. It was very quite, just myself and one other guest this past weekend. Short distance to amusement park and plenty of places to eat.

Parking was a minimum,only 1 car was allowed and we had 2 so we had to pay $$ to park the other 1 down the road for the weekend. Considering it was a very busy August weekend and the motel was full,we didn't encounter any excess noise.
Great location right on the beach,the motel also had a pool and jacuzzi. There was a grill to use for the guests as well. Although we didn't take advantage of it, a lot of the guests did.
Overall a nice average motel for a summer getaway !

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor between other rooms,and had no issues. The end rooms on the 2nd floor loo...

I loved this place because of it's proximity to the beach and that it's pet friendly! The other guests were super friendly and our dog loved their dogs! But that's where the love ends! The beds are the WORST! You feel every spring! You could SEE one bed sagging to one side! There had been a leak above our tub at some point but the ceiling was never fixed, it was stained & sagging! They put floor linoleum on the ceiling and walls of the bathroom & kitchen! The toilet didn't flush unless you held the handle down. We had 2 forks and 2 glasses, an 8oz and a 4oz. Plenty of plates though. The parking was all screwed up, the staff was assigning spots however they wanted instead of by room. There are other hotels in the area that are pet friendly, we'll stay in one of those next year!
