“Best on OOB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

My family and I stayed at the Crest last week. As always, it was wonderful. Honestly, it's just so relaxing. The atmosphere is actually just right. Not a loud crazy party scene that would make the kids feel uncomfortable but just real friendly. It was a little rainy for our 1st two days but, so what, the pool and surround are covered! (but opened up on those frequent hot sunny days.) The rooms have a refrigerator and micro and they're spotless.

We had a great time visiting Old Orchard Beach for the first time! The Crest location was perfect! Short walk to restaurants, the Pier, and just steps away from the most beautiful ocean cove in Maine! The owner and staff treated us like family. I appreciated their excellent customer service! Our family will definitely come back!

Room Tip: Our room on the balcony had a nice view of the ocean!

Excellent value and location. Highly recommended. Close to the beach and pier as well as an indoor pool for rainy beach days. Very family friendly and clean. We will definately go back next year. The staff is helpful and responsive.

We originally booked at one of the beach garden rooms which was an ok room across the street. The AC was not working so we changed rooms the next day to the Crest and it was phenomenal! The room was great, the kitchen was so nice to have and the pool and beach were amazing! Great place for families. The kids loved the pool and playground. They even had some toys for the kids to use. And it is a nice walk to the pier.

Crest Motel staff was very kind and helpful to my family when we stayed at their motel in Old Orchard Beach Maine for our July 4th holiday we would stay there again; it was quiet and in a good section of the town that was walking distance to most places and not far from a mall or shopping stores like Hannaford, Rite Aide etc.

Thanks for making our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

We stayed with Paul and family at the Crest the last week of June 2013. This is the 4th or 5th year for us.. for other parts of our family, who come at the same time (we tend to take over a third of the hotel) it is their 10th? 15th? year. As always Paul and family and staff are helpful and accommodating, the rooms are clean and bright. This year we were surprised by a remodeled bathroom and a new window in our room (215). Nice job! Playground, grills, picnic tables and pool that is perfect in any weather (it rained for 5 of the days we were there, but who cares..) make it wonderful to return to every year. 5 minute walk to "the centah" (palace playland) and 1 minute walk to one of the friendliest restaurants - The Barefoot Boy - as well as Mainely Wraps.. make staying there easy. Cant wait to return next year..

Went back to the Crest Motel at OOB, ME in June for another girls' weekend away and it was wonderful. They had updated the rooms and I must say they are awesome. Very comfortable and always clean. The staff and owner are the nicest around. We will be back.....soon I hope!!
