After A LOT of research into where we would be staying for our week long vacation, we decided on Waves due to it's amenities, proximity to everything and price. We were so pleasantly surprised after getting there. We booked online and it took maybe 2 minutes to check in. We got the only King bed Economy suite they have. This suite was wonderful for my boyfriend and I! Beautiful hardwood floors and nice little kitchenette with a microwave, coffee maker and fridge. The bed was comfy (surprisingly, I'm used to firm beds at motels!) The bathroom was very small, with a tiny shower. It's not like we spent much time in there anyway, so it didn't matter! Plenty of soap/shampoo/towels were provided throughout the week. There was an informational booklet in our room that helped us find things to do and restaurants to go to.
Being so close to the beach was amazing. Their pool is GORGEOUS! Their rule of "after 9pm, only adults allowed at the pool" is not really enforced, though:( Walking to everything and the "downtown" part of OOB wasn't too bad. It took about 5 minutes to walk to where all the shops were, as well as the pier.
PS. We were pretty darn close to the train tracks and COULD BARELY HEAR THE TRAIN!! I think I heard the train horn "honk" maybe like twice....
If we ever go back to OOB, we will certainly stay at The Waves again!
