The most awesomeness place to stay in OOB. Short walk to the pier. We don't drive, just walk everywhere. Kitchenette's are helpful; so we only eat out if we want to. Lisa -owner; on property if you have any questions, always very loving and wanting to help.

We stayed here mid-August. Lisa was absolutely wonderful from the moment I spoke to her on the phone. When we were stuck in traffic on the way there, she called to make sure everything was ok. The room was beautiful, ocean view. VERY clean and had everything you needed. Just a couple of steps from the beach and pier. I... More

Stayed here 3 nights recently. The building is obviously older but it is immaculately clean. Our room was small but very clean & had everything you'd want in a room. Full kitchen. TV, AC, comfie bed. The owner, Lisa, is great. Very visible, great to talk with & answer any questions. Very close to the beach-you can throw a rock... More

We had a nice stay at Richards by the Sea - Lisa was wonderful and waited up for us even though we arrived really late at night. We stayed in the Kitchenette Efficiency and although its cozy (read: small), was enough for us (two adults and a toddler and a baby). Don't come here expecting anything fancy - its basic... More

I'd like to thank Lisa for her continued hospitality at Richard's. Her personable service is second to none. She makes us feel like family. Her rental apartments are impeccably clean, improved each off-season, and in the heart of Old Orchard. Thank you, Lisa, for another perfect vacation! I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Richard's was a phenomenal base for a short getaway with my girlfriend. The owner was incredibly helpful, giving us great recommendations for dinner places and wonderful ideas for things to do in town. The location was perfect, just off the beach, and the right itself was charming and lovely. Would definitely stay here again.

My family of 5 stayed here 28-30 Aug 12 and are so glad we did. The location is superb and the hostess, Lisa, truly makes you feel like family. We felt like we were staying with an old friend vs. being a customer. You are a short walk from everything and will get great recommendations from Lisa. We will always... More

Richard's By The Sea was exactly what we needed. We live in Boston and don't have a car so taking the "train to Maine" is super easy. The Motel is a 5 minute walk from the Amtrak Station. We didn't have a ton of money to spend eating out, so we brought frozen/marinated foods from home and used their grills... More

My husband, son (4) and I just got back from our first stay at Richard's By the Sea in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. This was our first time to Old Orchard Beach and we loved it! The town is perfect for a young family! It has rides, an arcade, miles of beautiful beach, and fantastic restaurants. Richard's was clean and... More

Richard's By The Sea is such a nice place to stay while visiting Old Orchard Beach in Maine. Apart from it being right on the beach (which is a big plus), it's also quite charming. When you stay there, you don't feel like you're in a hotel or motel, it feels cozy and gives off a "home" feeling. The building... More
