The GOOD is the location, a very short walk to the pier and beach at Old Orchard. Rite Aid across the street, sells just about everything you might need, including beer, wine and alcohol. The rates are very resonable, staff is layed back and friendly. I liked their system for obtaining new towels and other supplies, a basket with a... More

First the pros... The location of this motel is perfect! It is a pleasant 5 minute walk to the beach and the pier. The pool is clean and warm. The owners are friendly and inviting. There is a pharmacy right across the street. The cons... Like previous reviews I also agree that the room was very small. There was no... More

If you are looking for a family atmosphere, and a place to get away for a few days, then this is the place for you!! One of the best things about it, it is only a five minute walk to the Pier. The rooms are clean, the pool is heated and well kept, and the owners Linda and Steve go... More

Love it here. Linda & Steve the owners are very nice. Our room was perfect. We got a room with a kitchenette. This was so nice as it saved us money on eating out. We used the grill everyday that they make available to guests. The heated pool was very relaxing. We have stayed here many times and wouldn't stay... More

First and foremost I am a review reader for sure and I spend a great deal of time reading multiple review sites and weighing out all kinds of info on a place so when I stay at a place I am usually confident in my choice. I didn't get to book a room as early this year as I normally... More

I read all the reviews here before staying at the Yellow Giraffe. I was hesitant to make our reservations due to all the comments about the size of the rooms, especially the bathrooms. There were 4 of us ladies, 3 of whom are on the "fluffy" side & my 7 yr old granddaughter. Yes, it was tight but we spent... More

Coming to OOB is a tradition every summer and this year we tried going to a different hotel. To start off, the lady was very rude because we are "the young generation" known for partying and drinking so we already had imagine without even coming here.. Second the rooms are relativity small including the bathroom which the door shuts right... More

They have bbqs to cook and refrigerators in the rooms. I have been staying here for the last 10-11 years. The only problem u have to book... More
