Had a wonderful stay in the oceanfront room this week. Was very lucky to get such a great room last minute. Someone cancelled :-) Marie was so nice over the phone and upon checking in. Waking up to that view was wonderful and Falling asleep to the ocean waves is so relaxing. Perfect for couples with little ones since it... More

I have been going to years not really finding a freindly place on the ocean, then finally found the Skylark. We have been staying every fall for the last 6 years. Clean, well managed. staff extremely friendly and accommodating.

The owner of this property basically stole $950 from my 5 friends and me. We had two nights booked in a suite. We were six 40-something grandmas out on a girls' weekend. Being a non-smoking room, those of the friends that smoked were having a cigarette on the deck, using ashrays provided by the hotel, and suddenly the police were... More

My cousin and I stayed in a corner room which didn't have a great ocean view but was more handicap accessible which was important. The room was stuffy, with no air circulation. One of the windows was stuck shut and someone had to free it. It was so small, and because the room wasn't facing the ocean directly, breezes couldn't... More

We stayed at The Skylark in Sept for a week with friends and booked the Penthouse which is definitely the way to go if you have 2 couples or family and need 3 bedrooms.The best part is you have your own private rooftop deck and the large windows in the living room and dining room have a unimpeded view of...

This was the first place I ever stayed in at Old Orchard Beach and I was very happy. We had a great view of the ocean from our room, even though it wasn't facing the ocean. The rooms were clean. It felt like 1985 because the decor hasn't been updated, but the bathroom was new, hotel-quality, and the TV was... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Skylark to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary! Great location to enjoy the sunrise over the ocean on the deck just outside our room! Easy walking distance to the pier at Old Orchard Beach, and just far enough away to get away from the crowds. Breakfast and lunch places just around the corner too! The... More

Old Orchard Beach isn’t Martha’s Vineyard, and the Skylark isn’t a sleek, modern, upscale hotel with all the latest gadgets and amenities. It is, however, family-friendly, right on the beach, and within easy walking distance to The Pier, restaurants, shops and amusements. For the 4th year in a row we spent a weekend here, and as always, enjoyed ourselves tremendously.... More
