This review is going to be short! We,ve been vacationing in OOB scince 1983. Not planning on going back anytime soon due to this problem at the Aquarius Motel. This was our third visit to this motel. Past experiences were very good. Here's the problem we had in room number 6 . We stayed at the end of July 2014... More

I love this place and want to keep it a secret! Small quaint, clean motel right on the Beach. A few blocks from the Pier. We have stayed in three different rooms, April, June and August. All are clean. The beds are comfortable. Some rooms have a kitchenett, complete with dishes, pots & pans etc. All rooms look out to... More

What an unexpected find in Old Orchard Beach! We were in the area for the day and decided to spend the night. An inquiry at a hotel near the Amusements was extremely expensive and not ocean front. We headed for the opposite side of the pier and just happened upon the Aquarius. What a gem! We were able to get... More

This summer marked our 15th year at the Aquarius. Right on the beach. Easy walking distance to the festivities at Old Orchard. Mitch and family have made improvements every year. I really appreciated the new patio. We signed up for the same week next year. Quiet, clean, friendly. Can't get better than that.

This is a small motel right on the ocean near the pier. The rooms we were in were very small, but being in the room was not the reason we opted for this motel.There is a patio literally steps from the beach access that has tables and barbecue grills. Although I imagine there might be times when you couldn't get... More

We have been meeting friends at The Aquarius for the past 8 years and none of us would even consider staying anyplace else. The family owned and operated business is very clean, management is extremely accommodating to any and all of our needs and treats us like part of their family. They are always more than happy to see us.... More

We have been going to OOB beach for over 20 years. We have stayed at the Aquarius for over 10 years. It is a family run hotel. The location is great directly on the beach and close to the pier. Great for families with little ones. There is an ocean front patio with grills to use. The owners take very... More

Checked in at 6PM and paid $149 plus tax. The room had no windows so requested another. Addional $40 charge. Tried to cancel but told $20 charge. Seems like a bait and switch scam. $190 for a basic room but we stayed. Have spent two weeks traveling the coasts of Maine and Canada and this is the most we have... More

We just returned from our annual stay at the aquarius and could not be any happier. The service is outstanding, owners mike and Mitch go out of their way to make you feel part of their family. We stayed in room 10 this year, corner suite with plenty of room for the 6 of us. The view is amazing, this... More

Good value for a nice clean stay, steps away from OOB. You can walk to the pier in under 5 minutes. Standard economy rooms are fairly small, but clean. Property is well taken care of,plenty of flowers outside, and decent view to the beach. The owners are very nice also. We have stayed here the last two years. The units... More
