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!

I was in Old Orchard Beach this past weekend for an event and needed a hotel with short notice. When I called Richard's By the Sea, the women who answered was friendly and helpful. She had a room available and it exceeded my expectations - full kitchen (and fully stocked with cups, utensils, plates, etc) and the bathroom was very... More

A friend and I stayed there and left there bitten all over from bed bugs. Contacted the owner, who lives on the property, owner denies knowing anything and refused to reimburse the motel stay. Rooms are smaller than they appear, the rooms are in need of serious update/makeover. Never again.

Susan, when was your stay? I have no registration information with your name. At no time was I given or shown any proof of bugs or bites. No one has asked for a refund. Not sure where this is coming from but I know the hotel does not have bed bugs nor ever has had. I am sorry that you... More

Not a new place, good ! Best hospitality you can imagine. Steps from the beach (very few ) A block from "down town", short walk from many very good restaurants, nice BBQ's out back if you want to stay in. Clean, comfortable, a great place, fully equipped and very quiet. We'll go back for sure !

My husband and I stayed for the night on 9/26/15 while we were visiting our child in college. You couldn't ask for a nicer host, Lisa is so kind, welcoming and funny! The rooms and building are immaculate...she certainly takes pride in her place and she should...it shows. The location is so convenient and it steps from the beach. The... More

My girlfriend and I just got home from a long weekend, our first long weekend, in Old Orchard Beach. I couldn't be happier with having spent it, at least the evenings and down time at Richard's By The Sea. From first contact, Lisa, the owner, was a huge breathe of fresh air. It's very clear that she takes pride in... More

Once again I am reluctant to write this review, however I am unable to CONTAIN myself. So far this season I have been blessed to have spent two magnificent long weekends at my home away from home. There are many great reviews about Richard's and it's awesome owner Lisa, however none of them are able, including my own, to paint... More

My family and I simply loved this place. With such a warm welcome from hostess, Lisa, who made us feel like family. Our room was ready on time, easy check in and easy check out. The room was immaculate, plenty of space, everything you need in the kitchen and surprisingly quiet. It's a great place to stay at with kids... More

Another amazing time with my family. Lisa is so welcoming, her housekeeping staff is top shelf and we couldn't be happier. The beach is so close, town is always jumping and this place has the perfect location. Thank you so much, we'll see you next year! 💖💖💖
