The room was very clean. The service was impeccable. The overall atmosphere of Richards by the Sea was very warm and welcoming. The beach was seconds away. Access to the main Pier, attractions and amusement park is only a 3-5 minute walk away.

We has an awesome time. The room/efficiency was clean and cozy. You are right close to the water, and downtown.. just park your car and leave it for the stay. If possible don't bring your truck.. parking is tight. We loved slipping out on the porch for fresh air.

The owner Lisa makes your stay just perfect. Very caring and personable but also gives you plenty of privacy. Rooms were clean and very comfortable with every thing you need in a kitchen if you choose to cook,. Definitely a home away from home. Only a few steps and your on the beach and two minutes to downtown. This perfect... More

Enjoy all that OOB has to offer: the beach, the arcade, the shops, the food (including meals cooked in the unit's equipped kitchen!) and nightly entertainment all within a short walk; then sleep soundly hearing the waves after watching the reflected colors of sunset mingle with the waves breaking on the pier and the moon rising over the water.

The room was very clean and came prepared with amenities. The owner was super nice and respects your privacy. Beach is literally 2 mins by walk away and great restaurants are nearby! Richard's by the Sea is definitely a great place to stay if your thinking of coming to Old Orchard Beach!

Everything is close by and the rooms have FULL kitchens so you are able to save money by cooking in. All of the patios have ocean views and there are... More

Our room was very clean and it was great being near all the action. This hotel is a short walk to the beach, food and entertainment. Great parking was a plus and we loved having our own kitchen. Lisa was very helpful with directions and recommendations. It was obvious to us that the hotel is well maintained and well staffed.... More

The best location in Old Orchard right next to the Pier. Restaurants everywhere. Beach is 44 steps from the door. Owner is a charming caring soul. Shops, amusements, privacy. Richards By the Sea has it all. This is going to be a repeat story

I came on here to say how happy I was once again during my last stay at Richards. I was very upset to read the "bed bug" review. I have been staying at Richards for many years, four or five times a year and it has always been wonderful.(and never any bed bugs) Lisa, the owner lives on the property... More

I loved the location! I stayed in one of the smaller units for a few nights, we had everything we needed, so close to everything. Lisa is very accommodating, she was able to give us a great recommendation for dinner. I will definitely be back!
