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

Two night stay in mid July for a weekend with family. Motel is old, but clean. Our room had a small kitchenette, which was nice to have with a large frig. Property includes pool which was well maintained and a grill area with several gas grills which was a terrific plus. Rooms were clean and decent size, ours had a... More

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
