We decided on a last minute overnight stay in Old Orchard Beach on our way home from Bar Harbor. We had time to do a bit of research and picked the Oceanic mostly because of price but it also seemed a bit quirky. We knew in advance that the rooms could be a bit tiny and have odd layouts, but...

I'm so sorry it had to come to this, where I have to write a negative review on a place I've been going to for years... We went there in July for 1 week, it started out being ok. The place was big enough for 4 adults, the beds we were told were new and everything looked ok. When we... More

This is actually a house that has been divided up into rooms, some very small. We rented a top floor room which was like an attic with slanted walls and a small street front patio / 2 double beds.There were 2 flights of narrow stairs and no elevator, so not very accessible for anyone with walking problem. The night we... More

This business does not make good on their promises, treats customers and their children as criminals and cheats people out of their money. Law enforcement took their side by not investigating that he committed fraud and crime against us by stealing our money and by not letting us stay the two nights we paid for, thus allowing him to continue...

When I booked this room it stated that it could accommodate an extra bed or crib. We had 4 in our party and 2 were fine with sleeping on a cot. Most places allow up 1-4 people before they start charging extra fees. It also said it had a kitchenette and a barbeque. The pic of the room showed a... More

The location was great and accessible to the beach. The gentleman that checked us in was very nice and showed us around the motel. The room was very small and the bathroom was not private from the bedroom. The pictures online does not do it justice, but overall the motel was fine. To find out, the owner was not at... More
