“The Best Deal in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

When we go to Old Orchard Beach we go to The Crest Motel. My husband and I have been back 3 years in a row. Its a very friendly place for vacation. Everyone is helpful. The continuous aroma of free freshly popped popcorn makes it more inviting. The rooms are bright, clean and cheerful. You are only a few feet away from the beach and within walking distance to downtown and The Pier, which is only a couple of blocks away. We've found Its the best deal in town.

Room Tip: Room 215 was closest to the Ocean and had the best view. At night you could hear the ocean slapping...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

We decided to stay here because we have two small children and the close proximity to the beach and pier drew us in. The price was right too. Overall we had a pleasant stay. Our room was clean and spacious. I recommend a room on 2nd floor for some ocean views. if your looking for a place to stay that is close to all the action then this is it. Nothing fancy, just the basics. My only complaint was the abundant smoking! Maybe not the fault of the owners but I do recommend they designate some smoking areas and police the careless disposal of cigarette butts. They were in the grass surrounding the playground where children were running around barefoot. Come on people!! It was tough to enjoy our outside seating with our neighbors smoking like chimneys right next to us. Especially when I am 5 months pregnant and have two kids playing next to me who are 3 and under. Probably not the owners fault but just something to consider to make the stay enjoyable for all guests. We otherwise had a great stay.

I was a little disappointed. The room was very old and tired looking . The bathroom walls were peeling and the tub had dirty grout. I wasn't entirely comfortable there but my children enjoyed the pool and we were right on the beach and short walk to the pier so those were pulses. Next time we visit OOB I will book somewhere else

We stayed with our three kids and had a great time. The hotel is extremely friendly and the owner Paul was very welcoming and kind. We had such a great time there, that we ended up extending our stay one more night. The hotel has a great outdoor set up with a pool, hot tub, barbeque area and play ground. The best thing was being a minute from the Beach.

we have been going to Old Orchard Beach for a number of years.
The Crest is right on the beach and it also has an indoor pool and hot tubs which are well kept..
The owners are super. Hope you all have a great stay any time of the year.

The rooms were well kept and very clean. The beach was right there so we could go anytime! Overall, this is an awesome motel with many accommodations including a glassed in pool area and hot tub, access to grills for cooking and a playground for children. Also, the motel is walking distance to many beach side restaurants, arcades and an amusement park as well as the pier and many unique shops and stores. This was an amazing vacation spot and we will definitely be back!!
