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

My sister, niece and I just visited OOB this past weekend 10/4-7,2014. We found the Sandpiper Beachfront Motel purely by accident. We were booked at another place that we were not pleased with.....turned out to be a great accident. The staff were extremely pleasant. The room was very clean and to our surprise extremely quiet. There were three of us... More

this is our favorite motel in OOB. we always request the end room on the second floor. the view is amazing, even from the bed, the sound of the waves as you are falling asleep is one of the most relaxing sounds. there is a private balcony that is reserved for this room. The rooms are very clean and comfortable,... More

This was my first visit to Old Orchard Beach and I was amazing that it was such a short drive (6 hours) from Montreal. We were three friends in desperate need of a quiet, ocean getaway. The family owned Sandpiper Beachfront Motel was perfect for our needs. We chose to go off-season for the peace and quiet. We went late... More
