I choose this hotel because it was close to the pier and had a cafe and market on-site What I didn't know is that Old Orchard Beach basically shuts down after Labor Day. The cafe and market were closed as were most of the shops and restaurants in town and on the pier. Even Dunkin Donuts was closed! (The cafe... More

We decided to take a spur of the moment trip to the beach to enjoy the last few days of summer-like weather ... when I called a day ahead, I spoke with Shauna (who was very pleasant) and she offered me a deluxe king room on the top floor in the Horizon bldg (right on the beach!!) ... I had... More

Decided to have a get away with some friends & while searching for a place to stay, we found the Waves. With it being right on the beach it made it super easy to switch from the pool to the beach with no hassle at all. We found the room to be clean & the staff to be super friendly,... More

Although located directly on the beach, the attraction of this property stops right there. Cleaning of the room each day consisted of only providing a single set of clean towels. No soap. No shampoo. No bed made. No floors cleaned. No trash picked up. No room cleaning of any kind. Had to throw out a new pair of bedroom slippers... More

We were with a group from Diamond Tours. Room on second floor, stairs were slick no treads on them, just paint, floors on first floor so dirty that one couple asked them to clean them and they were still so dirty the lady then mopped them herself, before their feet were black just walking across the room. The breakfast was... More

Diamond Tours comes to our property every year with two or three buses all through the fall. Last year we sat down with the directors of Diamond Tours because they had concerns about the floors. To continue our relationship with Diamond we installed new flooring in many of our rooms. The first floor has new tile throughout the room the... More

Brought the family to Old Orchard Beach the week before Labor Day. It was our first time at this area. We chose Waves because of its location to the beach, had a heated pool and close to the pier and other attractions. We wanted to stay at a hotel on the beach and the only options are non-chain hotel and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the property. You gave some great points and we hope you do come back to see us soon. The rooms you stayed in are earmarked for new flooring this winter! We are also looking at putting in an elevator which should make access to the rooms easier. More

Thank you for your hospitality. You made my stay Pleasurable and Enjoyable. There was over abundance of amenities from ocean side rooms, plenty of barbecues, pic nic tables, polite and welcoming staff, clean rooms, pool with hot tubs, free wifi and so much more. My family really enjoyed their stay here at Waves Oceanfront Resort.
