“Nice time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The Grand Beach Inn was perfect for our stay. We loved our little cottage. The staff was excellent, so pleasant and helpful. We'll go back next year!

“fun beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Water is quite cold but manageable. We had a lot of fun even though it was very very crowded. Beach was clean and people were nice. There is just too much deep fried food over there

“fun at the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I had not been to Old Orchard in 25 years, and brought the kids. They loved it as much as I did as a kid. They got boogie boards, sold in every store around. Parking can be expensive, but if you are the for the day that's fine. Prices go down during the day. Lots of place to eat. If grease is your thing well this is the place. Fried dough, fried Oreos, fried twinkies, chocolate covered bacon with Maine sea salt. I think the kids would like to go back next year.

There are a lot of things to see and do and we visit every year. The beach is large, there is a nice pier, lots of fun things to do downtown, just a great place!
