My girlfriend and I just got home from a long weekend, our first long weekend, in Old Orchard Beach. I couldn't be happier with having spent it, at least the evenings and down time at Richard's By The Sea. From first contact, Lisa, the owner, was a huge breathe of fresh air. It's very clear that she takes pride in... More

Once again I am reluctant to write this review, however I am unable to CONTAIN myself. So far this season I have been blessed to have spent two magnificent long weekends at my home away from home. There are many great reviews about Richard's and it's awesome owner Lisa, however none of them are able, including my own, to paint... More

My family and I simply loved this place. With such a warm welcome from hostess, Lisa, who made us feel like family. Our room was ready on time, easy check in and easy check out. The room was immaculate, plenty of space, everything you need in the kitchen and surprisingly quiet. It's a great place to stay at with kids... More

Another amazing time with my family. Lisa is so welcoming, her housekeeping staff is top shelf and we couldn't be happier. The beach is so close, town is always jumping and this place has the perfect location. Thank you so much, we'll see you next year! 💖💖💖

My friend's and I have had several weekend get aways at Richard's. You're just steps away from the beach and the boardwalk. There is also lots of great restaurants and some bars, if that's your scene. The rooms were spacious enough for a few of us to stay and the kitchenette was very convenient. But the reason why we go... More

I have been bringing my son and his two friends to Maine almost every year for the last 10 years and we always stay with Lisa. When we check in she gives the kids a squeeze and marvels at how big they are now. This is is best location for family and singles alike. Quick beach access, The Pier is... More

This is a unique place close to every thing. You feel right at home and Lisa is the most wonderful host you will find. It is close to the pier and a few steps away from the beach. It is quiet and exceptionally clean. You are close to stores and restaurants. The parking is easily accessible. We had no problem... More

We spent four nights in a suite: living area with table and chairs, futon, and TV; bedroom with two double beds; and kitchen (it's listed as kitchenette, but it's fully stocked with small stove and oven, so I call it a kitchen); and good sized bathroom with full tub (only amenity is soap). We were lucky to get a suite... More

So my family and I have been coming to OOB for 4 years and have been trying to find the perfect place to stay. Each summer we leave saying we need to find a different hotel... But NOT this summer! We have found a great place for our yearly tradition. Richard's By The Sea is a quaint inn that is... More
