My boyfriend and I have stayed at Waves Oceanfront Resort in August 2015 and 2012. It's clean, quiet, and staff are accommodating. No surprises. The location is ideal, both times we have stayed across the road from the beach. The rooms are outdated but so are other hotels in the area, it's a good value!

The pool and hot tub were wonderful....the room was average. Beds were not too comfortable, small space, and no carpeting to pick up sand when you walked in the door left for a messy room at best. We stayed the first weekend after the season ended so the price was affordable. I would not pay the in-season price for the... More

We stayed here over the Columbus Day weekend. I thought there wouldn't be much to do but the arcade was still open. The pool and hot tub are heated and were still open but we didn't use themThe foliage was beautiful to admire if you want to take a drive. This was our second time at the hotel and we... More

What can I say about Waves Oceanfront Resort that I did not say in my last review? Clean, quiet, accommodating staff and comfortable and cozy rooms. We stayed at this resort for a second time during our trip to Old Orchard Beach and it was just as wonderful as the first time. But it's off season-that's the way we like... More

Great place to stay. Our room had an ocean front view, which was breathtaking! Couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Check in was smooth.....nice folks! The perfect trip for a get-together or family vacation. Highly recommend!

Went there late September pretty much off season. Chose the hotel due to value and waterview which was nice. As far as the room went was comfortable enough, though was supposedly a king bed which was really the size of a queen, not a huge deal.Read that the room had a kitchenette which it did, the surprise was no microwave....

Some friends and I got together in Old Orchard for a long weekend. My room was clean and comfortable, a perfect home base for our day trips. Tough I did not use them, my room was near the pool and the hot tub. Across the parking lot there was a convenient path to the beach, which I visited in the... More

My wife and I and two grand daughters stayed at the Waves for three nights. Resort was older but well maintained. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly. Beds were a little hard - wish there was top padding. Enjoyed the location as was close to the beach. Our room had a small range and refrigerator but no microwave oven.... More

Have traveled many times to Old Orchard but decided due to the US exchange that we would try a budget motel closer to the pier. Price, service and location were good. Nice views from the balcony, well set up bq and pool area. Parking was also free. But... the carpet was not clean, really.... I understand it is a beach... More
