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

We stayed here in June 2015 and had room 8. Not happy/ The reason I gave it 4 stars is the closeness to the Pier. The room was so small that the bathroom was a tiny room. Our knees touched the wall when we sat down. It was clean. The bed had springs that you could feel. But we still... More

We stayed recently and we loved it. It is right on the beach. We had a room with a private balcony facing the ocean ( which I researched and requested ahead of time). I could see why some other rooms may not be as great due to location but that would depend on what you prefer. The rooms could use... More

Such an A1 location, I don"t know why they don't invest in doing some refurbishing. The carpets are old and really not clean. The rooms are nicely set up and the showers are great. We were several friends, so I saw a few rooms. Some have been brought up to a good standard, depending on the building you are in.... More

The location is great and the kitchenettes/ grills help save a small fortune on the food bill! With what we saved (although Hannafords is not exactly inexpensive), by not eating out, we feasted on lobster, filet mignon, shrimp and enjoyed every bite of it, unlike the expierience at some local restaurants. The staff is friendly enough, the rooms are decent.... More

We recently had a full week stay in Old Orchard Beach and booked the Waves Oceanfront Resort as our headquarters while visiting some coastal towns in Maine. We cannot say enough positive things about this place! The room we stayed in (414 in the Horizons Building) was great. We had a living area, bedroom (with a king size bed), kitchenette... More

We stayed here from May 23 - May 30 and had such a wonderful experience. We booked an oceanfront room in the Horizon building (room 414) and had our own private deck. The suite has a living room area, kitchenette (with fridge, toaster, coffee maker and microwave), bathroom and bedroom with a king-sized bed. The mattress was extremely comfortable and... More
