The Waves provides a wonderful place to stay. It is very clean. There are different types of rooms some of which are more modern than others. Even the original rooms are very clean and in an old fashioned beach or camp type feel. One thing to note about all of OOB is that the train is loud. Even when not... More

Stayed in Bldg F which was 'beach side'. Private balcony with a view of the water was nice. View semi blocked by a telephone pole, but the staff advised us of that when we booked the reservation. Accomodations were adequate. Room was in need of updating but was clean. The air conditioner looked new and we were grateful for that... More

We have stayed at this place twice. The pool and hot tub are great as well as the location and entrance to the beach! It is a little farther down the strip than the other hotels so it nice and quiet. Rooms are outdated but clean. Will stay here again!

This is a nice collection if buildings. We stayed on the street side and our room was clean and perfect for a few short days. Location is great to both the beach and a quick walk down to the pier. Did not use the pool but it looked nice. They really work hard to keep the multiple buildings and area... More

We had a fun week in Old Orchard. We stayed in the Train Suite which was good for our family of 5. I think this is one if the best spots in the strip. It is not a 5 star resort but comfortable and one of the best spots in OOB. It has a nice pool and BBQ area. We... More

This hotel was the greatest bargain I got during my trip to Maine. I stayed in one of the simplest (cheapest) units, which still has an ocean view. But you can stay at the most expensive ones right on the beach. My unit had two bedrooms separated by a complete kitchen (no microwave, though), and lots of space to accomodate... More

Stayed here for five days in July. I wouldn't call this place a resort...more comparable to camping or staying at a cottage on the water. The location is second to none...close to beach and downtown...you can walk everywhere. Pool area was modern and very nice. The service is good but the room we stayed in was dated. We had two...

VERY warn dirty rugs. No microwave. We paid more than we have EVER paid anywhere for very small place. If your only interest is to be near the beach it is a good choice. They gave Night security. And no problems with noise. We were 2/3 of the way in.

This is a decent beach motel. Older but clean. Front desk folks were great. Direct beach access is great. Bill shows a charge of $1.00 for wifi access. Why not just add that to the room rate? It kinda ticked me off because the wifi access sucked or was non-existent the entire time we were there. That's got to be... More
