Great place!! Clean, Simple, Friendly, Cheap. If you are looking for luxury, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a place with a great location that will not break the bank and is well kept, this place is for you. We will be returning!! Thank you Seaview Inn!!

Room Tip: Stay the heck away from the Brunswick!! Trust me!!

We spent Labor Day weekend 2012 in OOB (the last hurrah of summah!)at the Seaview Motel. We had 3 rooms for us and family members. We were in the older of the units with side-of-motel oceanviews from the top floor (3rd). Yes, some of the furnishings were older but the cleanliness and amenities such as the very comfortable beds, Wi-Fi, pool, outdoor grills and kitchenette make up for it. There is no musty smell, dirty carpets, etc. as we had experienced in other OOB establishments. TheSeaview is within close walking distance of the pier, arcade, eateries, bars, etc. Labor Day is so busy in OOB so I was astonished how quiet our room was at night.

Every staff person (and there were many!) we came in contact with was personable and caring.
This property is well-maintained around the clock. From a tourism POV, they have customer service and motel management down-pat!

This was a return visit as we stayed at the Seaview Thanksgiving 2011. We were able to bring our much-loved family pet - a black lab - during the off season and were blown away by the nice room we were given in one of the other buildings.

We are very pleased with our two stays at the Seaview, We will return and we will highly recommend it to others!

Room Tip: Rooms 28, 29 and 30 afford nice oceanviews from picture windows and verandah chairs.

We had such a nice trip while staying at the Sea View Motel! We had an ocean view room. It was clean and you could not beat the view! Far enough away from all the hustle and bustle, but close enough to walk! Great place that I would definitely recommend again and again!

We have been going to Old Orchard for 20 years now usually stay at the same place but for the past couple years decided to try different motels. We always wanted to stay at the Sea View but it was always booked when we were heading to OOB, finally this year they had a vacancy. Great motel all the staff were extremely friendly When I booked the room I requested the 3rd floor and they Honored my request. Room was a little small but clean, our only complaint was the bed it was like sleeping on the springs of the mattress , probably nothing that a mattress topper wouldn't fix if they aren't going to replace the mattress's anytime soon All in all we had a pleasant stay at the Seaview!

Room Tip: we stayed in the main building on the 3rd floor

Than you for your review. We have already replaced all of our Oceanfront rooms this fall with brand new Sealy Perfect Sleeper mattresses. We will be doing more to make sure all of our beds are the most comfortable they can be.

This is the place! On the beach, 5 minutes from the Pier, close to restaurants and most of all, super clean! The pool is great and also have barbecue to cook you lunch if you want to. They have "studios", very small room but perfect for one or two people. Sure to go back!

Room Tip: They all seem good to me.

Our studios are very popular for just that reason. The great thing about the Sea View is we have these great little rooms all the way up to two bedroom suites. So even as your family grows we will be able to take care of your needs. Thanks for your time and see you soon!

We booked a Studio room, very small but who cares as long as it's clean and at a reasonable price. We LOVED our 1st OOB experience!! And we will back for sure!! The Staff is outstanding! And right on the Beach and 5 minutes walk to all the action. The Pool was clean, seriously could not find any fault anywhere. See you next Year!!! :)

The Sea View Motel is steps to the beach! The rooms and the property are extremely clean. I never saw any sand - and it is basically located on the beach! A short walk to the board walk, shops, and rides. Far enough away that you do not hear any of the noise of that area. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are four gas grills on the property, a beautiful in ground swimming pool, there is a room you can use that has tables/chairs, couches, large screened tv with dvd player. The rooms all have a kitchenette and dishware. You can use the facilities at the sister resort- Waves. We walked there to do laundry- it is just steps down the road.
