Had a great 4th of July weekend with several family members and friends. Hotel was nice and clean, location was great, room was bigger than expected and could really have been used for 2 couples. Pool was very nice, lots of chairs. Staff were really helpful, security was amazing. Nice cookout area with picnic tables. All rooms have small kitchenettes... More

Aug 2013: We had the little building right in front of the pool parking lot. Bottom floor with a pool view. AWESOME place. Easy walk to the attractions and all the people where great. The rooms where just OK, but it felt like a beach rental. me and my family of 5 ( 3 kids), would definitely go again if... More

We LOVED Waves! Went away with another couple for a July 4th weekend getaway and had the best experience. Our room was plenty spacious, very clean, and included a balcony we weren't even expecting! What a great surprise! The pool and hot tub are on the beach and so nice. We ended up spending the large majority of our time... More

We just recently got back from our annual trip to Old Orchard. I must say this year blew me out of the water! Waves is worth every cent! At first when making our reservations I was hestiant due to the cost (we are a family on a budget) but I said I am going to "splurge" since I have stayed... More

We just returned from our 2nd family vacation to this wonderful place. The people are always so friendly and as always our room was great, oceanview is the best. The pool as always was the best especially with the coldness of the ocean. The prices are good and great staff makes it a wonderful place to stay. See you next... More

Pretty nice hotel directly by the beach, and I think one of the best value-priced one the decoration is old but still pretty clean rooms, perhaps it is not well sound proof. We haven't tried the pool.. Front Desk staff is very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in a kitchenette that near the beach-it was great to get cold drinks and a lazy breakfast and snacks. The rooms are dated but for the value we had nothing to complain about. Short walk on the beach to the pier or by the road- didn't have to get back in the car at all!

This resort was just what we were looking for. The staff was very polite and accommodating, my first impression was that they were a little sloppy but then I realized that they were in the midst of painting and doing repairs, very understandable. The room that we stayed in was not updated as some of the other rooms are but... More

We just returned from a 4 day stay. Simply lovely, everything was perfect and just as we had hoped. Great location, clean property, clean & updated room with an amazing view. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything from our initial inquiry to the end of our stay, was purely stress free! We will be back! Thanks again for a wonderful experience.... More
