This hotel could be really something, being in a fantastic location on Old Orchard Beach, but it was only adequate. It was clean and the staff helpful and friendly. We had a ground floor room, and when the people in the room above walked about it sounded like a herd of elephants were tap-dancing up there. Mercifully they weren't up... More

We are very sorry if there was another room that made more noise than you are comfortable with. Please keep in mind that many times our security will not hear interior noise unless... More

I live in Northern Maine and always stay at Waves when traveling south. It is the best place to stay in OOB in my opinion. Well appointed clean rooms. I usually get an Efficiency with a balcony in Buidling E. Steps from the beach. Just a short walk to a very good restaurant. Ocean views. Excellent customer service. Wifi. Who... More

My wife and I recently took a road trip from the Boston area to enjoy the fall colors. We drove into New Hampshire on the 93 and eventually turned eastward into Maine, ending up at the picturesque town of Old Orchard Beach. Our second floor room had a balcony and view of the ocean. It was early October, the off-season,... More

Stay here over the Labor Day week. It was a nice place. The staff were friendly and helpful and they seem to work all day keeping the resort area clean. The room I had was very basic, it had a two queen beds, it also had a large refrigerator, a small stove and a sink. Also there were some basic... More

We had been travelling up through southern Maine looking for somewhere to stay, and were very pleased to find an ocean front room here, reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and friendly and whilst this is not a luxury room it has a great view of the ocean with a deck and is close enough to hear the waves.... More

This was not our first stay at the waves, and it certainly won't be the last. We were off season, so we got a great deal on the room (about 1/3 of the peak season price). Even if we were 2 weeks after the end of the peak season, the pool was still heated, and the spa still heated and... More

These comments are not correct. Our rooms are among the cleanest in Old Orchard Beach. I would never suggest anyone but myself respond to complaints about our hotel.

I found this hotel through the Maine vacation guide. It was more reasonably priced for the accommodations than anything else in Old Orchard Beach. Somehow, however, I missed others' comments on the noisy trains. The positives about the hotel are completely overshadowed by the noise of the trains at night. The train tracks are literally across the street from this... More

We appreciate your review but feel as though it is very unfair to give such a low rating when your big complaint is about the location of the railroad tracks and not with our hotel. As you stated the train tracks do run down the entire length of Old Orchard Beach. There is not a hotel in town that is... More
