We have been staying at the Aquarius for at least 10 years when we vacation at OOB. It is a older but very well kept property that caters to an older crowd.It is a place to relax.I love to spend at least one day on the patio reading,watching and listening to the waves, and watching the birds flit through the...

We have vacationed for the past 5 years over Labor Day weekend at the Aquarius Motel at OOB Each stay has been at least 6 days, The motel is a friendly, family run business that is just steps away from the beach itself. The motel is a rustic cottagey kind of environment, We have stayed in the same room for... More

The entire staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed the oceanfront patio and lighthouse.... More

We found the Aquarius about 10 years ago and we have been going back every year since!!! It is a small, clean, family friendly motel right on the beach you can listen to waves and smell the salt water as you sleep. We have stayed in a few rooms at the Aquarius over the years and all have been clean... More

Mitch W, Owner at Aquarius, responded to this review

As a family owned and operated business for the past 13 years we have never experienced anything like this before. When this problem was brought to our attention we took immediate action to correct the situation.We provided the recommended treatment to the room to solve this problem and have corrected it in working with a leading pest control company.

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
