We stayed at the Edgewater in the heart of Old Orchard Beach on January 30th-31st while attending an event in Old Orchard Beach. The location is right on the beach. We fell asleep and awoke to the amazing sounds of the waves. Our room was perfect - like something from a country magazine - spotless, well-maintained, comfortable and had all... More

We've been staying at the Edgewater for 30 years and we wouldn't stay anywhere else! The rooms are comfortable, clean and attractive and the exterior is always beautifully maintained. The staff is warm, friendly,and helpful. We always enjoy our time here. Thanks to Pierre and Jeanne for making this our home away from home!

We had a great overnight stay! We stayed in Rm 20 which is overlooking the ocean. We fell asleep to the sound of the crashing waves! Sigh,....wish I was there now! Room had a fireplace and a jacuzzi. Both were great. I loved everything about the location and the room. The only thing my husband and I didn't like was... More

This was our 2nd stay and won't be the last. Beautiful oceanfront beach inspired room with gas fireplace and jetted tub. Laying in bed and looking out at the ocean..there is nothing better. Walking distance to the pier (if it were open) is an added bonus! Homemade cookies too! No breakfast at hotel but nice local options. Enjoyed ourselves...very relaxing!

I was pleased that it was clean! Very clean but YES there is a funky smell in the rooms. I believe it is some cleaner that they use. I bought fabreeze and sprayed the room it was fine until they cleaned the next day. The side view of the ocean was decent. I peeked into a vacant straight on view... More

Thanks for reviewing our property. I am not sure of the smell you are referring to, but we will keep inspecting our rooms for any issues. We just had our carpets professionally cleaned, perhaps there was some residual odor to the cleaner. We appreciate your input as we try to keep improving the vacation experience. More

We come here every spring, every summer and every fall. We feel like being at home. Personnel is very courteous under the supervision of Pierre, the owner. Rooms are very well decorated and always clean. You walk 30 seconds to reach this wonderful OOB beach. You walk 30 seconds to reach this very fine restaurant Joseph's by the sea. Free... More

The staff were warm, welcoming, and very accommodating. Very down to earth and made you feel like family. They were helpful with dining recommendations and always had lots of hot fresh coffee in the morning in the lobby area. We had an issue with our bathtub the first night so we were told they would wait to fix it until... More

I came to OOB when I was a kid, my wife and I came here before we were married and now we come here with our son. We usually alternate between the Beachwood next door and Edgewater. It's a familiar and comfortable place we look forward to most summers have come to see as a tradition in our family. Consistent... More

Love this place! Just got home today. This was our 4th year in a row staying here. Always very clean, great staff and the location is perfect! Once you park your car you can walk everywhere. Easy access to beach and a heated pool! Great family place! Not a rowdy motel like some other ones at OOB. Highly recommend this... More
