We have stayed at Richard's by the Sea a few times from May '16 to September '16, and many times in years past....it is a cozy 12 unit hotel steps from the sea, steps from downtown activity, steps from the bustling pier.....owner is on premises and through the years she has become like family to us.....the units themselves have kitchenettes...

We were here for three nights. The place is clean and about 15 seconds from the beach and near city center. The only down side is there is no elevator and we were on the third floor, however for us it was not a problem. We will stay here for sure on our next visit.

Richard's by the Sea is truly a gem of Old Orchard Beach! It's literally not even a two minute walk right to the heart of town. You can head to the strip of restaurants/bars, the pier and the arcade area any time of day or night but somehow it isn't noisy at all in your room. The rooms are welcoming... More

The owner of Richard's By The Sea--Lisa is wonderful to work with. You can tell she loves her job as owner of this quaint hotel in the center of Old Orchard Beach. The location is close to the ocean and the historic pier. If you desire a quality experience by the ocean, give Lisa a call.

We stayed at Richard's by the Sea in August 2016. Lisa is a perfect host, she lives on the top floor so she is around when you need her, but gives you your privacy. She was nice enough to get us a couple extra pillows. Richard's is very clean and neat. I don't know how she keeps all the sand... More

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!
