“excellent stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

I was so delighted by this motel that decided to stay another night. the owners are sweet, kind and do all to make you feel at ease. I asked a towel for the beach and they gave me also a chair! the room of the first night was large clean well equipped, the bath clean and wide, the bed comfortable.and I loved the coffee machine! 10 minutes walk from the old pier.
the room of he 2nd night was really to small but still clean and bed comfortable. I would stay here Again

3 nights as a couple September 11 - 13. Motel room #1. Just off the East Grand Road and far enough away from the Pier, but not too far. Could see the ocean from the rear windows. Looked like it was just remodeled. New carpet and furniture (2 full size beds, 2 dressers, large mirror, table and chairs, flat screen TVs), a safe, new shower, bathroom flooring and wallboard, new windows. Incredibly clean - if you have ever been to Switzerland - it was that clean! Cute lay out of the kitchenette complete with a counter and 2 stools, 2 burner cooktop, MV, mini frig, 12 cup coffee pot, sink and every kind of cookware, dishes, and utensils necessary. Provided dish soap and a few coffee filters. Very tiny, charming bathroom (which is probably typical of these vintage motels) with the worlds smallest sink. Shower with lots of hot water with a lot of water pressure that is controllable. They even managed to squeeze in a wall mounted hair dryer. The thru the wall A/C did it's job and did provide some white noise - very much like home! There were 2 plastic chairs and a small table on the porch entry just outside the motel room door. Close to everything. Convenient parking just outside your door. Wish we could have stayed longer. We knew that Old Orchard Beach was close to train tracks and we heard the Amtrak Downeaster as well as other trains go by several times a day. Did not matter in the big scheme of things. Pool was available right next door at the Echo. Wifi reception was good either from the Echo or Moontide. We slept in the room that did not share a wall with another couple as we could hear TV noise - not loud and obnoxious, just audible and expected in an older motel. We spread out into the second bedroom and kept the one room neat. Although we used the drop leaf dining table for breakfast, I think I would have preferred to have a couple of comfortable stuffed chairs and just eat at the counter. In the evening, there was nowhere to go to relax and read a book, other than lay on the beds or sit at the table. Out on the beach, just to the right as you enter the sand, there is a grill - I think it is called the Seaside Grill. They serve up breakfast and lunch, snacks, and they are a source for miscellaneous needs. Nice to have something that close. We were there late in the season and there was not much going on in OOB, but we found enough to enjoy the town!

Room Tip: I think the motel room space was fine for a couple and perhaps 1 - 2 very small kids, but a couple w...

We've stayed 6 nights at the Moontide Motel and our stay was perfect. We were welcomed like we have never been welcomed before in OOB, the room was very clean, the beds were comfortable, nice flat tv and very quiet at night. A few steps away from the beach and a few minutes from the pier so the perfect situation. We will go back for sure.

I recently stayed for a four day weekend at the Moontide Motel in Old Orchard Beach. My mom and I wanted to do a fun trip to Maine and this was the absolute perfect place for us to stay. I actually found Moontide here on Tripadvisor and felt very comfortable booking my stay based on all the positive reviews. The motel room was perfect for my mom and I. It's obvious that the building has been there for a few decades but everything was spotless. We stayed in room #1 and could actually see the waves from our bathroom window. We felt we didn't lose anything at all by not being technically "beach front", we were still incredibly close to the beach. We loved our trip so much we actually regretted so many trips away from town up to Portland and down to Kennebunkport. We will definitely be back and plan to spend even more time at the motel and on the beach. Thanks Donna and Jim!!

My girlfriend and I booked this place several months in advance because of the price. While the price was excellent, the hospitality is second to none. Our room is quaint with all the necessities we need. There's a very nice flat screen tv (that we never turned on), stovetop, microwave, counter, double bed, and AC. Each room is assigned two chairs and a table out front that we used to hold our seashells and wet beach attire. One morning we awoke to our beachwear missing but realized a note had been placed on our door from the owner that they had taken our wet clothing/towels and dried it for us. When the owner brought it back, he said he knew it was supposed to be nice the next couple days and wanted our stuf to be dry for the beach.

Honestly, every place is only as good as you make it. If you spend any amount of time in your room at OOB, you're missing out on some of the most beautiful sights you'll ever see.

We've stayed in many motels/hotels in many places and this is by far, the cleanest place to stay! The new renovations are amazing and only add to the already convenient location of this little gem of a place. Highly recommended!

The appartments are not located directly on the beach but they are close by. They are clean and well maintained. We rented appt #4 which has two nice bedrooms (queen & double), a small kitchen, a living room (with futon) and a large veranda.It is equiped with fridge,stove and three tvs. The large veranda (well ventilated and sunny) provided a very confortable added living space.
Highly recommanded.
