This hotel is very nice but it has some problems. First, we were told it was sold out so there was no room for our second car. The website states that after June 1st the room only comes with one parking space, we were there over Memorial Weekend. We had to pay $20 to park the second car. The hotel... More

My beautiful wife and I stayed this weekend for my wife's first official trip to OOB! This place was top notch, above the rest and I am not an easy person to please... The general store on the property has an excellent cup of coffee which it delightful to start your day with. The staff of the resort, especially the... More

Last September (2014) we stayed at the Waves - in a seaview room - and absolutely loved it! So we decided to return for a short 3 day weekend (May 8-11) in the very same room! We anticipated the same peaceful and restful environment and that was exactly the case for the first evening! The next morning unfortunately, we were... More

We stayed in amazing ocean view room. Very pleased with the friendly staff including front desk and housekeeping! I stayed 10 days and loved this place! Close to pier. Beautiful beach. I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend. I stayed during prime season and highest prices of summer (July). Worth every penny!

The owners are so friendly and accommodating, and really know how to show repeat travelers that they appreciate their business. They offer me a discount every year and they constantly are making updates to the property. The pool is just amazing!! It's a short walk to the pier and steps to the beach. Couldn't ask for anything better! It's truly... More

Our family has been staying at the Waves annually for over 10 years. We can't give enough praise for this resort. The staff are warm and friendly, the rooms are well kept and clean. The location can't be beat; it's right on the beach. There is covered parking and barbecues & laundry facilities on site.

The Waves is the typical hotel on Old Orchard (there are no chains on the strip); small firms or family operated facilities that were built years ago. The location of the Waves is awesome; on the beach and a short walk to the center (on the south side) but far enough away so the noise is dimmed. The rooms are... More

Tried to save money by getting a room on the first floor. Unfortunately, it was a dump... old and dingy and literally right in the parking "garage" area. Should be turned into storage or updated. The resort is in a great location and I think other rooms were fine, but don't fall for the lure of the cheapest rooms!

I needed a reasonably priced hotel within walking distance to the Amtrak station, and after checking a number of locations, was immediately impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. I asked for the least expensive room available, and was pleasantly surprised to find myself in a roomy, very clean, well appointed room complete with mini kitchen. Although the... More
