Alouette Beach Resort
Ranked #17 of 44 Hotels in Old Orchard Beach
Reviewed April 24, 2014

The view was wonderful and the service was FABULOUS! We won't stay anywhere else when we are in the area! We stayed there and then drove to Boston for the marathon. Aloouette was a much better experience and value than anything we could ever get in Boston....and the breakfast menu is great - try the zucchini bread!!

Room Tip: Beach front is always best for me - open the windows to hear the surf!

If you go to this resort if that's what you want to call it, be sure you stay the required days you book because there the only place that we've ever stayed at that will not refund if you decide to leave a day early. We mentioned to the owner upon checking in that we might have to leave early. Also, we requested a soaking tub thru booking.com at least a month in advance and we're expecting it upon arrival. Not only did we not get one but the price jumped to $100 more for it. We felt we were deceived by this since he never emailed me back confirming that the price would be more for it. They just wanted the room booked and that's it since it was during the off season. During the off season we could have stayed at some other place a lot cheaper. The breakfast was included but you only had a few selections to choose from. It's not a continental breakfast. Needless to say we're out $125 and definitely would not recommend anyone to stay there.

Our thanks to the staff at Alouette which, from the time of our initial reservation inquiry through to check-out, made for our having a wonderful stay. This was added to by our being in one of the new suites that was, by far, the best we have experienced in the many times we have visited Old Orchard Beach. Thank you Alouette Beach Resort and know that we are already planning our next stay with you!

We randomly stopped here for the night and were very happy with our choice! We were upgraded to one of the new ocean-view rooms. WOW!

The Good:
In the room:
-- Brand new everything: very clean and well maintained
-- full picture window views of the ocean
-- comfortable bed with lots of fluffy pillows & warm comforter
-- a private deck with chairs for comfortable viewing (on a warmer day).
-- Little kitchen set up: fridge, micro, coffee machine, couple of stove top burners.
-- Shower: very good water pressure and plenty of hot water
Amenities:
-- FREE long distance calls
-- Free wireless internet (though service was pretty slow)
-- Included breakfast: several "free" options and ability to upgrade to a more "robust" breakfast at a discount. We found the free options were fine: breakfast sandwich was yummy and the crispy home fries were steaming hot with a great "crisp".
- Waitress/cook at breakfast: fast, efficient and very friendly. She did it all!

Areas for improvement:
- In the room there are 2 HUGE chairs at the picture window with a small table. The chairs face into the room and even though the room was spacious, the chairs took up too much space and were not in scale with the table. Why? The big attraction is the ocean view. We moved one chair to face the ocean. The other was just too big and heavy to move at all! Recommendation: replace with smaller, more "nimble" chairs and a slightly larger table that could serve as a small dining table/card table. This would be much more functional.
- In the room, add bedside tables. You need something there for stuff like bottle/glass of water, eye glasses, book, remote, etc, We dragged over one of the chairs and used the up-ended wastebasket. LOL

All in all, a GREAT location, fantastic views, great service. We only stayed a night, but were impressed and will try again when the weather gets a bit warmer...

Room Tip: Go for the new building with Ocean views. Worth the bit extra

We visited the Alouette Beach Resort Suites in early April. We had a suite in the new building right on the ocean. It was amazing! The suite was beautifully appointed (Rm 202) with a separate bedroom, a lovely bathroom and a small kitchen. It was just my husband and I but it would have easily been just right for a family. While this time of year is pretty slow in Old Orchard Beach we loved it. It is only a 20 minute drive to Portland where dining and shopping are plentiful. The staff at the resort were great, along with the free cooked to order breakfast in their little cafe. If you came during the summer the entertainment boardwalk center would be open, but I am sure the beach would be packed, too. I would absolutely come back here, especially in the spring. Getting to watch the sun rise over the ocean was an extra treat, since we live in Washington State where the sun sets over the ocean. Loved it!

Room Tip: Room 202 in the new suites - complete ocean view.

We have stayed at the allowed Te quite a few times and have yet to have a bad experience. Love the new suites, clean, comfy & quiet. Beautiful view, plenty of room, loved the soaking tub. New suites are a bit pricey on season but very affordable off. I would highly recommend!!

I always stay at the Alouette Beach Resort whenever I visit OOB. Clean, comfortable, spacious rooms, very helpful and friendly staff. The kitchenettes are so convenient. The owner and management welcome you like family. The place is great, beautiful sunrises and sunsets right on the ocean! It's my favorite choice and recommend Alouette to everyone.

Room Tip: Try out the new building right on the beach. It doesn't get any better than this.
