The Holiday House is a beautiful inn on the Pine Point part of the beach near Old Orchard. The establishment is made up of an inn in front and a hotel wing in the back. The owner is very nice and staff helpful and friendly. Prices to stay there have gone up though and upkeep hasn't followed. The rooms are... More

We just spent a weekend at this quaint inn that was easily accessible to Old Orchard Beach and all the amusements. While it is a bit of a walk (but doable), it is completely separate from all the noise. The rooms are...rustic but very comfortable and clean. The Inn rooms have a great breeze, good ocean view, and waves that... More

2nd visit. The last time, I stayed at Holiday House was in 2011. I happy to say our 2nd stay at Holiday House exceeded our expectations as did the first. The location is perfect. The access to the ocean and beach is excellent. The Inn has a wonderful place to sit out and view the ocean. I cannot say enough... More

My fiance and I found this place on TripAdvisor, because we needed a place to stay in the Cape Elizabeth area during our Fall Foliage driving tour.This review covers the motel side of the property - we found that it was a better value for us, since we were on a budget. We can definitely say it is above average... More

This is not Holiday Inn, but.... I knew that going in from other reviews. The place met and exceeded our expectations and we will be back next year. After a few nights visiting relatives in Maine, we spent a Labor Day overnight here before returning home. We had stayed down the street from this inn a few years ago, so... More

We've been staying at the Holiday House for 5 years in a row. I discovered this place 20 years ago when my child was only 2 years old: nothing much have changed. Great family place! The location is great, near Portland, Maine Mall, Freeport... and directly on the BEACH which is the main attraction for my family! And it is... More

Just returned from our annual Maine vacation and our stay at the Holiday House where the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is ideal….far enough away from the hustle and bustle of OOB, but close enough to any vacation activity you could want. Our room, in the hotel portion of the Inn, suits our needs just... More

Although we choose the first week of September, to escape the crowds, -- we still enjoy the relative peace and quiet of the Inn for this annual vacation. The staff are helpful and do their best to insure a pleasent stay. The Inn is somewhat dated, but there-in lies it's charm. I can almost imagine my parents enjoying it's soothing... More

Thanks for your kind words....and yes, our furniture does have a little history, but because it was all made in Maine, by Moosehead furniture, we choose to keep it, as it is still highly functional....just not modern. We've tried to keep things as "homey" as possible without going the "chain" look. Once again, Thanks for the review and we look... More

Stayed at this inn for the first time. Rooms in the motel are so-so; old furniture, quite dark, bathroom could use a bit of TLC... but clean, and comfortable. Loved that there was a little sitting area outside our room to relax after dinner. Shared kitchen was great, especially with kids; enough room in the fridge for our juice, milk... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review....it's great to hear what our guests think! As I mentioned in another response, we like to refer to our furniture as having some history to it. It's highly functional, but it was Made In Maine by Moosehead Furniture and that's why we love it. We're trying to stay away from that... More

My family and I have been coming here almost every summer for the past 4-5 years. Perks: beachfront, community kitchen, out of crazy OOB craziness, but close enough by trolley if you have the urge for fried dough and skee ball. Most of the people staying here are from Canada and speak French, which makes it interesting. Many of the... More

We'd like to Thank You for taking the time to put your thoughts into your review. As so many of our guests have different preferences when it comes to bed firmness, you can imagine that not everyone is going to be pleased with our "middle of the road" firmness. Thanks again for the comments and hope to see you again!... More
