“Green Dolphin ok, Old Orchard Beach, not for me.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Hotel: good location, pool, hot tubs, steps from beach. Mostly a place for families with kitchenette, and grills. The owner was friendly and engaging while doing some chores around the property. Felt safe, and we did have parking directly in front of our room.

OOB, was NOT for us. Felt like the Jersey shore, and most food options came in a red basket or paper bag. The beach was packed, and relaxing was not an option. Took a ride went to Kennebunk which is more our route. We only stayed in OOB for two nights as part of a 12 day road trip.

I would recommend the Green Dolphin IF OOB is your thing.

I called the top 11 places on trip advisor. This was the 11th.

The green dolphin was the best price, best location and best availability I found.

Most places are stuck up and flaunt they have no vacancy pretty much for the entire year. The green dolphin is literally less than a 2 minute walk from the beach!

We stayed in the jacuzzi room, there are 2 and was awesome. If you are tall as I am 6'2 it will be tough but you just have to duck but was ok as it was pretty much underground.

Nice pool and jacuzzis outside but didn't use too much. Sometimes packed with little kids and not that this means anything but there are a to. Of French and Canadian people at OOB it was pretty funny!

Little surprised there wasn't more places to eat around OOB. The pier restaurant seems to be the busiest but we went to hooligans also located on the pier and was alright!

Overall awesome place only negative thing is the remote to the tv Didn't work!

We've been staying there for 4 years now and it's by far the best motel we've stayed in OBB. The rooms are clean( I am picky about that) as much as they can be (I mean the carpet cannot be washed every checkout).The staff is friendly, accomodating (they brought us a coffee machine in a room that did not have one right away) and proud. The pool and hot tubs are clean.The owner built a little unit in the back of the motel and let us use it to shower or to use the washroom after we've checked out. There is a BBQ available at all time if you want to use it. Every room has a table with four chairs outiside. The bach is just across the street and it's close enough to downtown attractions.Loved the place and we will go bak next year again. Thanks!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms at the corners if you're renting 2 rooms with friends or family. They communica...

I highly recommend this establishment. Our room had 2 queen beds and they were very comfy and our room was very clean. Our kitchen had a 2 burner stove, dishes, pots pans and utensils. I am rather fussy and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these items. We opted not to have daily room service, it is offered, we only needed fresh towels each day. We went over Memorial weekend and the weather was less then ideal. The clerk at the desk ( Linda) was very informative and was more then happy to give us a list of things to do in the area on a rainy cloudy day. We opted to drive 1 hour North to go to a casino in Oxford. The owner Randy happened to be on site while we were there and he was very friendly and personable. He too gave us suggestions on where to eat dinner and etc. If you don't want to eat all your meals in your room each room has a long 4 person table just outside their door. We enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast out there. ....this establishment had a pool and 2 hot tubs. This hotel is across the street from the beach and a healthy walk from the pier. You won't be disappointed should you stay here.

Room Tip: This hotel is on the main drag and we were in the room closest to the street, and didn't have a...

We have stayed here for several years and wouldn't even consider going anywhere else. Randy and his staff make our vacation memorable! From check-in to check-out anything we want is here. Rooms are cleaned daily and staff are always on-site if we need anything. They offer honest recommendations for restaurants and attractions and make you feel at home. We
Look forward to our annual vacation at the Green Dolphin. Thank you Randy!! See you in September!

My family and I have been coming to Maine for 20 years. We have stayed in many different areas. Now the kids are older we decided OOB for the fun and beach atmosphere. OOB did not disappoint. Neither did The Green Dolphin Motel. We stayed at the sister propery two years before (Sir Charles). All was just wonderful! Nice proprietor and awesome job with the pool upkeep.

Location: great, cleaniness: great, price: great!

My family had a wonderful stay at this very hosptable and clean motel. The rooms were well appointed for what they are. They were clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tubs, yes tubs (2) were super clean and very accessible as was the lounge area. each room comes with a four seat table outside your room to enjoy a meal or some company outside of your room. The owner (Randy) and his staff were always on hand for anything you might need or for some local info. I would recomend this hotel for down to earth people looking for a clean safe place to be away from their other home , because these people make you feel like this is home.
