This is a very dated property. The motel room is very dated with a mix from several decades (none recent). A small amount of work could make this much more modern -except the peach color bathroom tile :) The property overall is very clean. The staff is very friendly. The location is excellent and just a few steps from the... More

Definitely an old school establishment. TV so tiny a tablet might actually be larger. However it's clean. Management is attentive. Shower water pressure is freaking awesome. Location cannot be beaten. 2 minutes to beach 10 minute walk to anything.

We stayed in the motel area, mid June 2015. It was quite dated but VERY clean. The only drawback was no answer when I tried to call the office after hours. We had a kitchenette, small cable TV and the air conditioning worked great. Great value for $100, low key and relaxing. Lovely people, friendly staff, and the smell of... More

Thank-you for your review! We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendly staff. We are very happy with the newly renovated rooms we have started on. I am sorry you did not get an answer after hours, I will check into that. Phones should be answered at all times. We hope you can come back and enjoy Old Orchard Beach... More

Stayed at the motel side (facing the swimming pool) mid August with my family. My daughter rented the room next to us (room 6&7) Our first time stepping into the Ocean House itself to check in felt like we stepped back in time. The interior decor looked as if it hadn't been touched since the place was built. It had... More

I stayed here for one night on Labor Day weekend with my girlfriend. We are locals, but decided to spend the night at the last minute of our final day to the beach for the season. Not expecting to find any vacancies in town, we were surprised to find one room left here for only $100. Aware that the vast... More

Clean, simple and inexpensive. Where can you stay right on the beach, with a beautiful pool, a room with a stove top, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and fully equipped kitchen. We parked our car and never had to drive any where the whole time. Few steps and we were on the beech watching fireworks, the sunset and sun rise. Our room... More

The House House is a taste of the past sprinkled with present day. If you are are looking for a Hilton experience, don't bother- this is a simple, clean, close location to the Pier and ocean. If you enjoy listening to the ocean at night and the smell of fresh salt air, this place has it for a reasonable price.... More

My family and I have visted OOB for more than 20 years. We have stayed at numerous hotels and motels until we found the Ocean House. If you are looking for views, a piece of history, I cannot recommend this motel enough. With continual renovations and rooms that have special personalities, you need to expect a taste of the past...

We stayed in a small room in the original building. As some other reviewers have noted, the hotel was once a small grand dame of summer resorts. The architecture is fascinating and the layout is wonderful: expansive parlors and sitting rooms, wonderfully shaded porches with ample shade and rocking chairs. Many guests can enjoy working on puzzles or playing board... More
