This was my family and I second visit to the motel. It was daughter Emma's 8th birthday which I noted in the reservation when I made it and we were blown away when we arrived. Upon checking in when I said we were there for my daughters birthday they were like you must be Emma, the look on her face... More

We stayed at the Surf Inn section, a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and a beautiful big private balcony. Everything was absolutely clean, wifi was perfect, all amenities were fully functional and the AC could go strong if you needed it to. A flat screen TV is also provided in either room with many channels to choose from.... More

Nothing fancy but it is only. 2-star hotel. Close to the beach and other attractions. We came to Maine just to eat lobster and this was a great place to stay on a budget. I would recommend and maybe even use again. Very friendly owner and staff. Parking was a bit of a challenge but it seems to be the... More

This was our second time staying at Crest, and they did not disappoint! This time we had a standard poolside room and it was very clean and well-kept, and a decent size for our family of 4. We loved the nice touch of having a small kitchenette - counter, drawers, small fridge and microwave - perfect size for storing snacks... More

Very nice staff, good location. Pool was nice. Wifi was decent. Only thing I didn't care for is the number of people they claim the rooms will hold is not accurate..States 5 but that would only work if they were children or midgets. Kitchenette was also not what I would call a kitchenette. I would stay here again though.

Was able to find a room last minute. Staff were very responsive and accommodating. Room was a bit hot as AC was located at the front of the room. We had a great time. Quick, easy access to beach. Room at Beach Garden building was spacious. Free coffee and popcorn in office. Indoor pool and hot tub to accommodate guests... More

My entire family has been vacationing here every summer for over 20 years! The owner Paul goes above and beyond. Huge play area for kids, the walk to the beach is seconds away! Lots of outdoor toys, grills, tables, etc. The Pool is covered and enclosed with a lot of tables. The crest feels like HOME to us.

Easy checkin, great staff, other guests where fantastic and became part of your vacation. Second year traveling to this resort and enjoyed it just as much. Rooms are clean, close to the beach and all activities, great outlet shopping less than an hour away. It's Old Orchard in the Summer, it's loud, it's busy, it's sand & sun and rain... More

First time here, the greeting was exceptional, I even noticed the manager going out of his way to accommodate other guest that made there own errors regarding there bookings. The room was totally unexpected for a motel, it was very spacious, clean, the property was very well maintained. This area is a busy section of Old Orchard, it is what... More
