Old Orchard Beach

Taking a trip to Old Orchard Beach on September 5th for 3-4 days. We would like to have oceanfront property. We would also like cleaniness & affordability. Any suggestions from experience? Very much appreciated.

I like Richard's by the Sea on Kinney Ave. It is not beach front, but it's a mere 2 buildings away. There are hotels right on the beach, but I have not stayed at them.

We've stayed at the Edgewater and found the rooms to be clean and nicely decorated and the staff very accommodating. The rooms we've stayed in had a kitchenette which was nice.

We have been staying at the Ocean Walk Hotel for 12 years. It is right on the beach. This is a quiet side of OOB and we love it. The beach is gorgeous and very long.

We stayed at The Beach House... right on the beach... very clean... quiet... and walking distance to the pier. It was perfect.

The above suggestions are all good ones.

I think you'll find many decent places to stay, they may not be brand spanking new hotels, but you can see the pride in many of the owners as they keep their places clean and repaired.

I'll add Patra's on East Grand Avenue towards Scarborough. East of Moby Dick even. From the units, you only need to cross a lane of sorts to access the beach. There are grassy dunes around there so stay on the walkway, else risk a fine damaging the dunes.

Good quiet stretch of beach, away from the town noise.

Patra's also has a little BBQ courtyard area behind the units which I'm sure guests can use. Ask for a unit away from the Avenue, quieter.

Patra and Paul who own the property are very nice people as well.

The Crest is also very clean. However, you have probably already booked!

as dwrrn stated - these arent brand new hilton resorts, but the pride in ownership is evident on many of these hotels!

Have fun!
