“Hospitality at its best. Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Not a 5 star hotel but 5 star service!! Clean rooms, close to all activities, caring owners and staff. Family oriented. I would highly recommend this place to anybody contemplating a visit to Old Orchard Beach and would not hesitate to go back again.
We were made to feel like we were the most important people there and other guests said the same.
Saturday night there is poolside entertainment. Great music and fun for all generations - a blast from the past with a dance contest for the kids
If you are planning a trip to OOB this is the place to stay

Room Tip: Book early if you require two room suites.

If you are looking for the Ritz, then skip this review and go elsewhere. If you are looking for fun, clean, affordable accommodations in a terrific Old Orchard Beach location, then read on. First off, OOB is not York, Ogunquit, or Kennebunkport. It is a true beach town with a laid back attitude and lots going on between the amusement park, the beach, the shops and the pier.

Beach Villas has 20 units up to 3 bed rooms at the same site off Imperial street. They have a pool that is central to the units and deepest end is about 5'. There are 3-4 gas grills strategically dispersed across the site if you want to cook your meals there. We have stayed in the 2BR units once (C4) and the 3BR cottage next to the pool twice (C7) and they both had a full kitchen as I believe all of their rooms do. Both times in the cottage we had no problem with 4 kids and 4 adults. These rooms have NO ocean views. I believe that the top rooms in the main house have a distant ocean view. Beach Villas is about 3.5 blocks from the OOB Pier/Beach and Palace Playland amusement park. They are 1/2 block over to the main street (Old Orchard Street) with many of the shops and food. It is somewhat noisy being in an urban environment, but the rooms are well insulated. On any given night there will be folks on their decks/balconies or in the parking lot hanging out and being friendly. As I mentioned, this is not the Ritz. There are some signs of use and ongoing repairs in the rooms with updates in progress. However, nothing that's a big deal and if there is a larger problem, just let them know and it will be fixed immediately. Parking can be tight, especially if you have a large vehicle, but there are enough spaces for all guests (C7 & C8 cottages get 2 parking spots each). The rooms are clean and functional and for the price and location, I don't see how you can go wrong if you want to be on OOB. It is perfect for families - we had kids 6-12yo. And the innkeepers - Bob and Cindy - are terrific people who will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. They are personable and genuinely interested in their guests and any feedback you have. On Friday nights there is music at the pool and Bob and Cindy are usually there and do a give away of a night's stay at a future date.

There is a Rite aid about 3 blocks away that sells everything from snacks to beer/wine/liquor and has an assortment of clothestuff and the other things you'd normally find. Maybe 1/4 in the other direction is a plaza with a Shop n' Save, laundramat and hardware store.

If you go to Palace Playland, ask Bob and Cindy for coupons for $4 off a day pass (M-F) which makes it $27.50 for an adult and $19.50 for kids <6 that just want to do the kiddie rides. You can walk through Palace Playland for free anytime that it's open. Only cost are for the rides and food/drink or playing the games if you want. It is NOT typical carny atmosphere. Folks are very nice and many of the employees are regulars or college/HS kids.

The Pier is fun to check out with the shops and the few bars and the beach itself is huge and you can go anywhere to either side of the pier. There are showers to rinse off right at the beach.

For typical Maine fare, go to Baleys in Scarborough which is about a 10min drive. There is a fish/lobster store to buy stuff to cook at home as well as a restaurant near their campground. For really unique and good fare, check out Buffleheads in Hills Bay over in Biddeford about 25min ride away.

Best charter for those wanting to go fishing is Don's Early Light out of Wells (http://www.donsfirstlight.com/). About 30min ride from Beach Villas, but worth it. He charges (at this time) $300 for 4hrs - all boats out of OOB are ~$400 - and Captain Don is great finding the fish and terrific with the kids. 20' Sea Hunt boat and he'll want you there at the Wells launch at 5am :)

I could probably write a lot more, but you get the point. For the location, $$ and a fun time, I don't know how you can beat Beach Villas. We have stayed there the past 3 summers and will go back again.

Room Tip: If you want the 3BR cottage RIGHT NEXT to the pool so you can see your kids outside the kitchen wind...

I found that place last year - we've returned for a week again 2 weeks ago,. We really enjoyed our stay over - such a great place at a walking distance to the beach, the pier, the recreation centre and the main street where you can find anything you want.

Fun atmosphere, family owned.
We stayed for one night and it was great fun! The owners made us feel very welcomed and went out of their way to point us in the direction for a night of fun. They know the area very well and shared their advice. After a hot day on the beach, it was nice to jump in the pool on the motel grounds.

I have vacationed at the Beach Villa every summer for 9 years! My whole family, including toddler to young adult children and adults, have enjoyed their stay. The rooms are clean. Management and staff are attentive and accessible. The pool is immacuate! The motel is perfectly located ...close enough to the beach that you can walk down for a short stay or all day. Shops, grocery stores, restaurants & fun all within short distance. I would recommend the Beach Villa again & again!!
