Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Right on the beach with east access to the beach. Short walk to the pier and amusment park. Have been staying here for years. Price is reasonable. Staff is friendly. Place is clean. Parking can be a bit tight.

Stayed August 2014, travelled with family

I saw pictures online of this hotel & it looked ok & several reviews said it was nice. I know people have different views of what's nice &I'm not sure if it was just the room we had or what but this place was not nice. We had the suite. First let me say the owner was very nice, friendly & accommodating. It has been tough for him with the economy the way it is & the short summer season in Maine. The suite does give you a little more space w/a separate room than just a room w/double beds but boy does this need an upgrade. The carpets were dirty, the wiring at the top of the ceiling had a piece of plastic or something trying to cover it. The table in living room was being held up w/a piece of wood, lots of shabby work in there. The beds were ok & the living room had a large futon which was comfortable for the kids. The bathroom.....well lets say if you are a large person you will not be able to maneuver in there never mind try to sit. The shower was literally 3ft wide they had the cheapest dirty plastic shower curtain folded in half to fit on the tiniest shower rod, literally no room in the shower my husband kept hitting each side just to shower & the shower head was not high enough for the guys. Luckily we were only there for a couple of nights. The pool was ok with a small patio around it, but the chairs were dirty/stained & it was fenced it to block the wind. Things were just old & grungy. I would never stay here again I wish there was availability directly across at the Edgewater which is clean! At $240 a night I expected WAY more than what we got. On the plus side, it is directly on the beach, close to the center & does allow small dogs if you have one.

I think if you stay four nights you get one free...but right on the beach. Short walk to everything..wonderful weather. Our whole family goes every year snd we get four different rooms. It's very relaxing.

Nice place on the ocean side of street. Not too far to walk to pier. Usually go to Maine every other year and always stay here. Try to go before peak season when prices jump high. Check for specials and get a restaurant voucher.

I return every year to the Old Colonial and always find something new and updated. Whether its the two hot tubs and sauna offered or the gas grill for vacationers use. Definitely, worth the price on the coastal strip.

Room Tip: everything gets updated so there's no room with an old TV, toaster or microwave

Was our 34th anniversary and we like going to OOB, we look for a place on the beach and have stayed here for the last 3-4 yrs. Walking distance to everything so you can park and walk. The best part is they allow dogs.

We have stayed at this hotel at least five times and have always enjoyed our stay. The location is great. Right in the middle of town. Just a quick ride to any other neighboring towns. The only downside is they could really benefit from investing in new mattresses. I would recommend this hotel for families and they allow little dogs too. Just relax at the beach and end your day at the pool.
