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

I stayed here at the beginning of the season for a long weekend with my girlfriend. I grew up in Maine and wanted to show her how beautiful the area was. The Skylark was perfect for us. You can't beat waking up on the beach and enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio. We found a few great breakfast... More

We stayed with friends at this Inn, and it was definitely disappointing. There was nothing extraordinary whatsoever about our room, but it cost way more than other motels in this area. For one, there was construction noise from early morning until late evening. When the reservation was made, there was NO mention of construction work. There were huge carpenter ants... More

We stayed in one of the ocean-facing rooms for a couple of days to meet up with some friends in Old Orchard. The room was clean, and booking was easy. We've visited the coast a few times to meet up with these guys, but this was my first ocean view stay. If you're looking for a great view, cool rooms... More

On the outside this looks like a great place to stay with the beach only footsteps away BUT step into room 2 and you will immediately be turned off by the smell. The best way to describe it is like a toxic mix of cleaners used to try and cover up something that smelled much worse. Even my 2 year... More

We come to OOB every year and we've stayed in quite a few places but this is the worst experience yet. We were not told about the construction that is happening right outside our window, hammering and sawing all day long. We should have been notified of this when we booked. At $265 a night we were expecting something much... More

My wife and I rented the penthouse for a night recently. It was large and clean with a real beach feel, the perfect size for a family vacation. It's a 3 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and dining room and a very sort walk to reasturants and the center of the beach strip and pier. It has a nice... More
