The very first thing I noticed were the abundance of spider webs on the guard rails. I know spiders can rebuild a web in a day but really, try spraying the nasty things! The room was antiquated. The ceiling tiles looked like they would fall any minute. They were old and dingy, giving the room a dark feel. The bathroom... More

Stayed here due to larger room sizes than many of the other hotels is Old Orchard Beach. Layout is a bit strange with the sink outside the tiny bathroom, and only a stand-up shower, which my young children didn't really care for. Beds were comfy. Pool was clean and kept reasonably warm. Customer service and housekeeping were very good.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights this past weekend and we really enjoyed it here! The hotel is very clean, definitely not updated, but the rooms are large for 2 people and the balcony has a very nice view of the beach/ocean. Staying on the top floor is a must, the rooms downstairs all face the pool and... More

This was a last minute booking, as my child wanted a return trip to old orchard beach. We arrived by train, and after walking a couple of miles (nearly collapsing in the heat) finally stumbled to the Friendship suites. Immediately, we were greeted by staff who empathetically gestured us to the water cooler. The check in went smoothly, they allowed... More

This place was a great setup for my family. Our two young kids slept fine on the pull-out couch. The pool is great - even when it was 60F outside and raining the kids enjoyed it. You are steps from the beach (and it's a very nice one and not too crowded even on the 4th of July) and the... More

My wife and I decided to go away for an unplanned vacation in July. I researched Old orchard Maine and came across The Friendship inn. I likes what I saw on line and decided to book a couple of nights. Upon arrival we were thrilled with what we found, A very clean inn with a very friendly front office. After... More

I visited Old Orchard with a good friend of mine last month. We were without husbands and looking to have a good time. The hotel was okay, no Hilton, but in a great location. Not a party place, family orientated. I did not have a car at my disposal and called the front desk for help and to my surprise... More

Our family rented one of the Friendship Beachfront condos at the end of June. The facility was perfect, better than we ever expected. Newly refurbished, clean, beautiful. Expensive but if budget is less an issue, this can't be beat. 2 bedrooms and pull-out, new a/c's in bedrooms, new appliances, all new floors & windows, bbqs, nice deck overlooking Beach -... More

This clean, comfortable and well located motel was a step back in time to my youth. It was a place for multi-generational familes to gather for surf, sand and relaxation. The staff was very accomodating. A great time was had by all.

the excellent: customer service! The owner initiated giving us a cot because we were traveling with 2 adults and 2 teens, and he knew the double couch was too small for two people.
