My family and I arrived around 11am for a weekend stay, we were welcomed with a smile and friendly service. Our room had a kitchenette in it with a table and utensils. Room was very clean and was pet friendly and right on the beach. Bring your own pillows though, the ones in the room were about as flat as... More

What a gorgeous location...right on the beach...and not as pricey as other places on the beach. The prices are lower most likey because of the condition of the motel. In need of lot of repairs. Pretty run down in certain areas but not so bad that we weren't comfortable. The kids loved the heated pool and I loved the hot... More

the room we were in (1) was in need of new mattresses. We liked the size of it. It was divided into two areas. Sleeping and sitting. It was the end of the season and the place was well used. The location was on the beach and the walk way though the beach grass was at the end of the... More

Great location, rooms were older but clean. Walk right out to ocean. Close walk to everything. Also allow pets. Friendly staff. Would stay again. Could use more food or breakfast items. Great view of ocean from room.

Talk about a disappointing experience! We rented a suite with our own hot tub on the deck a YEAR in advance for our wedding anniversary. My husband called 2 days before check and make sure the hot tub was working- because we were so excited about it- and we were told it was working. Low and behold- guess what? That's... More

We are sorry that this has happened to you. The hot tub was working until you called. After the water was changed we could not get it to heat, we called the company that takes care of the maintenance on it and he came right out. He did find the problem and ordered the part right away and due to... More

We had a great time staying here. The room had two double beds and a pull out futon, frig, keurig and microwave. The best part was the pool and Jacuzzi were right outside our door. The beach is so close. Our room was clean and the staff was extremely efficient to any of our needs. This was our first visit... More

It's less then a thirty seconds walk to the beach which is amazing with two small children! Parking is very tight. Short walk to all the action. The rooms are well kept and very clean. On the smaller side but plenty of room for a family of four(or a few more). The only grip so far is our hotel room(#6)... More

My girlfriend and I went to Old Orchard Beach every summer since 2004. We have tried a lot of places. The Old Colonial is a the most "ordinary" motel in OOB. We were just happy to find something decent. Ok, that was just clean enough - I had see worst - and all the furniture were from 1970 or 1980.... More

Right on the beach with east access to the beach. Short walk to the pier and amusment park. Have been staying here for years. Price is reasonable. Staff is friendly. Place is clean. Parking can be a bit tight.

I saw pictures online of this hotel & it looked ok & several reviews said it was nice. I know people have different views of what's nice &I'm not sure if it was just the room we had or what but this place was not nice. We had the suite. First let me say the owner was very nice, friendly... More
