This was my first visit to OOB in over 10 years and I am glad we visited. We booked this motel based on many positive reviews.

The beach is a one block walk to the shore. There are... More

Great service (Missy is so charming!), everything is clean, nice pool, near the beach (only one minute walk from the motel)...I'm sure going back next year! Ask for the second floor rooms (big balcony, full kitchenette). It's perfect for a friends or family trip!

This family owned motel is wonderful! Missy, the owner, makes you feel like you're part of the family. She asks and provides useful information about there area and what to do. The upstair rooms are equipped with kitchenettes complete with silverware, dishes and cups. Bathroom has a spacious shower with the option to adjust the water pressure to your liking!... More

I have been staying at the Sea Drift Motel since I was in my 20s (I am 42). It is still the best on the beach. The pool is always so clean. The balcony view is wonderful. The beach is a stone throws away and the night life is within walking distance, but not too close for all the noise.... More

Every time we visit Old Orchard Beach we stay at this privately owned hotel. Well kept up property with cozy beach decorated rooms. Clean and very friendly atmosphere. Owners go out of their way for you. Just across the street is the beach. Prices are great. Short walk to downtown attractions. Very nice outdoor heated pool. Great place to stay.... More
