We have been staying at the Skylark for 6 years now and highly recommend the place. This is the only place on the beach that has its own private grassy overlook of the ocean as well as grills and sitting areas as well. The rooms all have ocean views and are equipped with their own fridges. We have met so... More

The room was a tomb. Absolutely,no view . The view is small alley parking lot and an elevated two foot wide cement walkway. On the walkway there is a faded plastic type chair. In it people sit and smoke right at your door. Literally, right at your door. There sits the air conditioner to your room that draws the smoke.... More

Everyone was so kind, Dave, Marie and also the housekeeping staff all went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We especially want to say kudos to Marie, she is an... More

I've found this to be one of the friendliest, quiet family Inns in Old Orchard Beach. Very clean rooms with very helpful staff. Right on the beach and so close (but not too close) to the hopping downtown shops and amusement park. Highly recommend staying here 👍🏻

The Skylark should sell at shirt that reads: "I survived a night at the Skylark!" We arrived at 3pm after a four hr drive from Bar Harbor went to check in and the office was closed! There is no ice machine but ice to purchase like the gas station. Office closes every night until morning. Very old establishment. No faucets... More

Very pleased with the proximity to the beach. It was convenient to run back & forth to the room for items & to bring my infant for a nap. Stores are around the corner from the room but far enough from the Pier as not to hear the noise. The room was clean with no remnince of sand from prior... More

Waking up to that view was wonderful and Falling asleep to the ocean waves is so relaxing. Perfect for couples with little ones since it... More

I have been going to years not really finding a freindly place on the ocean, then finally found the Skylark. We have been staying every fall for the last 6 years. Clean, well managed. staff extremely friendly and accommodating.
