Reviewed July 26, 2013

Spent 2 nights, a little break in between touring colleges. Never been to OOB before, it was a fun little spot. We stayed in a Beach Garden unit across street from actual motel. Seemed like the hotel was full of repeat guest, it had the feel of a place families have been coming to for generations. Unit was comfortable, had small kitchenette, two full size beds and a trundle. Easy walk to beach, staff was helpful and nice. It was exactly what you would want in a small seaside property. We sat on porch in evening and watched all the folks walking to the amusement park and shops. I would go back for sure, too bad we live so far away!

Room Tip: I would say ito stay at Beach Garden unit, more privacy

Everyone was very friendly. Though my kids are a little older now, the playground and toys are right on the mark for a family with small kids. More hotels/motels should do this.

It is as it is labeled a motel and obviously an older building, but they have done a nice job at updating the rooms. Also it is extremely clean. The rooms are a nice size. I liked the counter with the chairs at the front window that can be used to sit and have a meal or use as a desk. It was an innovative use of space. So if you want a fancy hotel, this and probably most of OOB isn't for you. If you want a clean, family friendly motel on a wonderful beach this is a great location. It is very close to the pier. Though I think I would rather stay on the beach.

The check in time is also great at 1:00pm. Very few hotels/motels have check-in before 3 pm. Also we wanted to stay on the beach for the morning after we checked out. They allowed us to keep the truck parked in their lot and were able to use the bathroom off of the office to change. It was spacious, incredibly clean and nicely decorated.

Though we didn't try any, the free popcorn was a nice touch.

Room Tip: I think I would personally stick to the upper level. It avoids the pool noise (though it really did...

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.
