Wonderful view, location and staff. The Beachwood Motel is right on the beach and is literally a one minute walk away from downtown Old Orchard. I have stayed at many hotels in Old Orchard and the Beachwood is the most convenient!! There are patio sets, lounge chairs and decks for people to sit on around the motel, which are great for eating outside with family or viewing the Fireworks OOB puts on every Thursday night during the summer season. The rooms are very clean and up-to-date. All rooms have a fridge, stovetop, oven, microwave and sink. The Beachwood Motel even has first come-first serve beach chairs and umbrella's for their customers - there are quite a few of these so no hurry. Last but not least, the owners and staff of the Beachwood are awesome. Very friendly and customer service is #1 here. We have been loyal customers for the past six years...Can't recommend the Beachwood enough.

Room Tip: Room 121 - private deck!!!

The Beachwood is awesome. The rooms are clean, attractive, comfortable and have everything you could possibly need. Complete Kitchenette with stainless steel stove, refridge with freezer, microwave, toaster, sink, small table and chairs, keurig coffee maker with free coffee at all times, flat screen tv and wireless internet. The pool and jacuzzi are very nice and well kept. Grills if you want to cook out, They also supply you with beach towels and beach chairs and umbrellas.
Lounge chairs everywhere to relax in. The staff is exceptional, very friendly and helpful and do their jobs well. A well run operation that goes above and beyond. We will be back next summer for a week.

Room Tip: I like the second floor. Better view

While staying at "beachy motels" you get used to a little sand here or there....... Well not here. What a well run establishment! Picture perfect rooms,like brand new. right on the beach. Perfect location! I can't say enough except I wish we stayed longer! I will definately be back next year for a week. One thing was we didn't know to book a room on the second level for the veiw.

The Beachwood Motel is by far the best place to stay! We again enjoyed our stay this year. We loved it last year and ended up coming back twice this year. Very clean rooms,walking distance to everything. I hate giving such a excellent review due to the fact I want to be able to get a room next year (LOL). The staff is excellent and everyone is more than happy to get you what you need. I plan on returning again next year and probably will have a few more couples joining the ten of us. Thank you again for making our stay awesome again!

Top notch hotel, very clean rooms, everything you need for a getaway on the beach.
Walking distance to the best bars, shopping and good restaurants.
They give you Beach chairs, towels, Fresh Coffee, and the 3 things you can't put a price on...

Spoke to 3 friendly couples who said they had been customers for 10+ years.

Room Tip: Website has diagram of all the rooms. Closer to the beach is best, 2nd floor better for views than 1...

We've been going to the Beechwood since before the father handed his son the biggest gold mine on OOB. The beach is right at your doorstep and all the restaurants, shopping, amusement park, music and Pier is right next door. The pool and Jacuzzi is an added bonus. Also included is free coffee, daily paper, use of gas grill, and beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrellas. The rooms have been recently remodelled and everything seems clean. My only issues are:
1. They replaced the carpets with tile floors in the rooms. It is uncomfortable on the feet and even worse when you have sand from the beach on them. Its like scratching a chalkboard. They should at least get area rugs.
2. The price. After the kid took over the cost of the rooms stagflated. Its understandable since he did the place over and he still fills the rooms but we are only now able to afford a few nights when we used to go for a week.
3. They have nice new lcd televisions but you can only see it from the bed thats in front of the bathroom. It can't be turned so the other bed sleepers can watch too.
4. The showers are warm but not hot when cranked all the way. Still an ok shower but I like mine hot. No need for them to save a buck when they are getting around $250/night and using solar energy to boot.
5. The owner is a bit tense. A nice enough guy on the surface but hes always on the prowl watching the property all the time with cameras covering every angle. It is his business but its also uncomfortable. Hes also not very accomodating to personal issues.
Despite the cons we'll probably be back again next year.
