I had a presentation and equipment demonstration in Scarborough, Maine. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to call a few of the hotels on the beach. The Edgewater had only 1 room available. I took it and it was great. I would stay here again. It was clean, staff was friendly and the location is perfect. 5 minutes to the... More

#1 Reason for booking would be location. 90 degree pool on property, easy walk on beach just past the pool for 68 degree ocean...lol.. (so cold) #2 Fantastic beach! No rocks and very smooth as tide goes out. #3 5 min walk to pier for food, shops and amusement park. I guess this would still fall under location.... Now the... More

I vacationed to Old Orchard for three nights with my husband and another couple at the Edgewater. From start to finish, it was a fantastic weekend. Check in was easy and quick. The room was perfectly clean and neatly decorated. I love that it had hardwood floors - perfect for a beachfront hotel. We stayed in room 7, which was... More

Stayed several days at this motel. Very nice, well kept facility with staff that treat you very well. They have a pool and are located right on the beach. This is an exceptional place with New England charm.

We've just returned from a weekend at The Edgewater and could not be happier with our experience. Everything from the spacious, beautifully decorated oceanfront room to the remarkably helpful and pleasant staff made this weekend better than we could have even hoped for. A special "thank you" to Pierre at the front desk. His warm, friendly demeanor was the icing... More

We spent a couple wonderful nights at the Edgewater enjoying Old Orchard in the off-season. We were fortunate to have an oceanfront room, steps away from the expansive beach. Our room was so cozy and welcoming--beautiful decor seemingly luxurious with a beachy feel too. We loved having the fireplace on in the room while we lingered over the views from... More
