Going to Old Orchard Beach is like being back when we went there for the first time as a kid. Same pier with the same french fries smell, a wonderful huge beach that can take plenty of people. Same feeling of déjà vu when you get into your motel and the Sandpiper is no exception. The blue bath and toilet... More

We stayed 4 nights, booked 2 rooms, brought our grandchildren. They loved the beach and it was very convenient being just steps to the beach, especially with the children. The owners and staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable, a little outdated, but nothing too bad for a beach motel. Bathrooms pretty cramped, but nothing a bit... More

The location is Great, right on the beach, and a short walk to the pier. Twenty five minutes from old Portland. Great service, very nice people. The only negative is that the rooms need to be updated.

So on Friday the 10th I wanted to get away with the kids last minute. After calling around I landed here. Very nice staff, most accommodating. We decided to stay another night and they got another room ready for us. Right on the ocean. We will definitely be coming back to this motel.

I was torn between an average rating and a very good rating - so please read on. But from the looks of the other hotels in this particular area of Old Orchard Beach this might in fact be considered a very good motel. So because the owners were so nice I will give it a a very good rating -... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Sandpiper Beachfront Motel several times over the past few years. We like to go off-season to avoid crowds and still have an unparalleled ocean experience. The motel is clean and comfortable, with a great patio, and the sandy beach just a few feet from any of the rooms. The owners, a lovely... More

We were 3 rooms down from the beach front. The hotel is set so that many of the rooms have a nice view of the beach and ocean. We had a fantastic view. The owners are great and really made our stay enjoyable. The BBQs are located in an area where you have also a great view of the beach... More

When I arrived for a two-night stay I was shocked to see that the hotel is literally ON the beach. Many properties claim that they are "beachfront" only to be located across the street or a distance away. Not here. My room featured a microwave to heat up butter, a small table to eat fresh steamed lobster that I bought... More
