Moontide Motel, Cabins and Apartments
Ranked #6 of 44 Hotels in Old Orchard Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Spent one week there with 2 kids ages 7 and 3. They had an absolute blast. So much to do in the area. Swimming at the motel. The beach is just steps away. Arcades, rides, and delicious food all within walking distance. Moontide is a beautiful motel with many upgrades. We felt very safe and comfortable there. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed in Cabin D at Moontide this summer. The facilities are very neat and clean, and you can't beat the proximity to the beach (no main road to cross). We chose Cabin D after trying to get one of the larger units. For a family of four, the cabin was a bit small. Basically a large motel room with small bathroom and dorm-size frig with microwave on top. Privacy was at a minimum. There is a small ledge/porch outside the cabin that fits two chairs so my husband and I spent time there at night when the kids went to sleep. A/C unit in the room is very loud, made it difficult for all of us to fall asleep and stay asleep soundly. If I came back to Moontide, I would definitely book a larger unit. It was great that we had beautiful weather all week because we spent minimal time in the room. The pool was right outside our cabin but was too cold for the kids - the ocean water was warmer and they loved "surfing" the waves. Snack shack at the beach provided lunch/ice cream in the afternoon. Overall, Moontide is one of the nicer properties in OOB.

Room Tip: If you are looking for kitchenette space and/or privacy with children, book one of the larger units.

moontide1010, Owner at Moontide Motel, Cabins and Apartments, responded to this reviewResponded September 1, 2012

Thank you for staying with us this year and happy that overall you enjoyed your stay.. I wanted to address the couple of concerns you had mentioned. The frig is the standard 33 1/2 " tall frig that is in all of our non-kitchenette sleeping units and larger than most you will find in motel rooms. The dorm size that you mentioned is typically 1/2 that size. The pool is heated daily to 82 degrees. It may have felt cooler due to the extreme heat we were having that week and the ocean water was unusually warm at 71 degrees. Glad your children enjoyed the ocean surf. I agree there is not a lot of privacy on that particular cabin deck when outside due to it being poolside. However, this does work well for parents whose children like to be in and out of the pool during the day.

I am disappointed that you didn't make me aware immediately of the air conditioning unit being an issue for sleeping. I did check it out and have done so a number of times since you left running it in different settings and I can't find any excessive noise factor other than the normal thru the wall air conditioner sound when it is on. The unit is new as of May, 2012. However, I would have tried my best to address the problem if I knew exactly what was the problem. Everyone, especially on vacation, deserves a restful night's sleep.

Again, thank you for you positive comments and I hope to see you and your family again should you vacation in the area.

We stayed at the Moontide from Aug 12 to 18. We had rented Apt. 3 and it was a great size for our family of 4. 2 adults, an 8 year old and 13 year old. Our accommodations looked over the pool and our room had a dbl bed with a closet and flat screen tv and the kids shared a room with a pull out futon, closet and flat screen tv. There was a kitchen area that had a stove (which we didn't use but only once), microwave, full sized refrigerator and a table that seats 4. The kitchen was small but we didn't spend much time there. We had a barbecue on our deck which overlooked the pool which we were thrilled with and used a fair bit. The rooms were very clean and the a/c came in quite handy as it was quite hot and humid. The covered deck was nice to sit out on the night it rained...we had a great view of a lightning storm and stayed dry watching it!

The bathroom was small and carpeted. I wasn't crazy about the carpet in the bathroom but it wasn't a big deal.

This place is literally steps away from my favorite spot - the beach. Jim and Donna were great. We were very happy there and looking forward to coming back next year!!!

This is simply such a wonderful place to stay. James and Donna have done a wonderful job, along w/ their staff to make sure of it! It is VERY clean and plenty of room in our apartment! I found everyone to be very accommodating! Short trip down the path to the beach or try out the beautifully, well-kept pool! We have NOTHING negative to say, only positive thoughts and great memories about our stay. THANK YOU James & Donna for our 3rd(?) yr of a very relaxing vacation!!!

Room Tip: We had apt.#6....very spacious...2 full baths

We stayed in Unit 2 of the motel section at Moontide. (July 21-28/12) It was perfect for four people. The room was very clean and the kitchenette was very well equipped. The beach is a one minute walk down a quiet side street. The beach was awesome. We used the bbq/picnic area a couple of times which was nice. We would definitely stay here again if we return to OOB. The grounds of the property were immaculate and the flowers were amazing.

The motel is steps from the beach and the owners are very friendly. We had room 4 which was small but big enough for two adults. It is about a 10 minute walk to the pier but much quieter, which was nice. Great value, would definitely stay again!

Just returned from our 2nd year at OOB, had a great time, as usual Donna and Jim have outstanding accomadations, very clean,spacious and the perfect location with a clean pool and only steps to the beach. A short walk to the pier and you have a perfect vacation. I can't say enough about this place, we will visit again next year.
