It is first important to understand the atmosphere of Old Orchard Beach. It is a quintessential New England tourist town. Lots of hotels, lots of tourist traps and right on the ocean. Most of the town is over 100 years old and the whole town would look better with a makeover - which would totally change the character of the... More

This was my second trip there and it was as good as the first. Yes, the rooms are old and the tub was blue but, it was clean, nice, wonderful view, private and yes a bit campy. Everything I was hoping for from a beach side resort. People were having a good time.

Good location: close enough to walk to Palace Playland, yet far enough to be away from the noise Private balcony: every room has it's own private balcony! We ate outside every night. BBQ: we barbecued every night and since they have 4 or 5 grills, we never had to wait! AWESOME POOL: It's a salt water pool. It's safe for... More

Interesting experience. The location is excellent and our rooms were clean and functional. Service was helpful although sometimes frustrating on first response. In the end they worked things out and gave our crazy family a great weekend while they had their hands full with loads of tourists.

Came here July 6th -July 8th with my boyfriend and our 11 month old. I would agree with most the place needs some serious updating. I believe we were in building B, the private balcony was nice and we had a decent view off the pool/ocean. The pool was alright but defiantly way too small for the amount of people... More

We stayed at Waves Oceanfront Resort mid June 2015. Our room had an ocean view which we enjoyed by sitting on the balcony. Our room also had a kitchenette with the basics. It was wonderful to cook breakfast each morning and eat sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and listening to the waves and gulls. The room was very... More

Check in is late (3:00) check out is early (10:00) . Staff was not knowledgeable of the area. I asked for restaurant recommendation for a family friendly place and was refered to a bar/lounge that was completely inappropriate for our young children. I was also charged $10 per child per night extra for my 2 kids even though I was... More

The Waves Oceanfront Resort is a through back to a simpler time. They feature a view of the Atlantic from nearly every room on the property and the beach is just a short walk down a sandy path. The third floor was the best, but remember there are no elevators. We enjoyed the balcony with a wrought iron table and... More

We stayed here celebrating our 35 wedding anniversary and had a great time. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Beach is a short walk up a path. The beach is very long and wide, great at low tide. Many rooms have an ocean view. The hotel is located far enough away from the big crowds near the pier and... More
