We have been coming to the Sea Drift Motel for eight years. Another family member recommended it, we came up, and fell in love, and have been returning every year since. It is now our family tradition to end the summer in Old Orchard Beach--and at the Sea Drift. Why? Because this family-owned business and the people who run it... More

My family and I come to Old Orchard Beach every year. We have stayed at the Sea Drift before and decided to come again. We will never stay anywhere else. The owner was extremely accommodating as we had a late check in. The rooms were spacious and clean. The grounds are well maintained and the view of the ocean across... More

My family and I stayed at the Sea Drift motel for the first time in July 2014. We had an excellent time. The location is perfect, as you are directly across the street from the beach. As well, we were walking distance from stores, restaurants, the pier, as well as the amusement park. They also have a heated pool in... More

Felt like being welcomed with open arms to someone's home; Missy runs a great staff and everything is clean, neat, down to the slightest detail. Never have I had such a wonderful experience as staying at the Sea Drift Motel! We had a kitchenette and everything was sparkling clean and in working order. The walk to the beach was just... More

Couldn't ask for a cleaner, friendlier place. Missy and her staff do a great job of making you feel at home. 5 women in one room and still plenty of space to move around. Not to mention that the beach is just a skip across the street and the downtown area is within a 10 min. walk and/or you can... More

Only a few minutes walk from the beach, this was just what we were looking for during our three-night stay. Missy, the owner, was friendly and helpful, and even gave us extra coffee to take to our room when we had missed the normal times. The kitchenette was good, and everything worked (which saved us on restaurant bills), although our... More

We stayed at here for 4 nights, the people that own the property were so kind and hospitable right from the moment of check in. They made the stay that much more enjoyable. The... More
