We had a great time at the Yellow Giraffe! Their prices are affordable for a family, and having a kitchen, pool, grills and a nice area to sit and eat is very hard to find. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. They have a great system for towels, etc, where you leave a basket with a list of things you... More

Just back from our third trip to the Yellow Giraffe. Still spotless, cozy & the best rate in OOB. I had broken my leg a few weeks prior to this planned family trip & had we been staying anywhere else, I probably would have cancelled but I knew I would still enjoy it very much just relaxing & enjoying the...

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

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
