The Beach House
Ranked #1 of 44 Hotels in Old Orchard Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Stayed for one night at the beginning of May before the busy season. The room had a beautiful porch with a view of the entire beach. We were greeted by the owners and they personally showed us around our room. They were excited to talk about the area and recommended several nice attractions. Great customer service and an overall awesome experience!

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room to get the private porch

My wife and I have stayed at four different hotel/motel/inns on Old Orchard Beach over the past decade and I stopped looking when I got to the Beach House. It's just yards from the ocean and the hotel is designed so you feel that close wherever you are. It's impeccably clean and Anne-Marie and Mark are the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful but never intrusive. And the prices are tres reasonable.The kitchenettes are like home. You can cook a meal and then sit in the front room and watch the sunrise in the morning and, of course, the moon at night. Lovely experience. I go there at least twice a year, sometimes with my wife, sometimes just to be alone. My latest trip was just a bit ago in March.

My wife and I decided to visit OOB for our 30th anniversary this past May. The last time I had stayed was during the summer in university days. Wow! Either my memory is faulty or my tastes have changed. There was very little to recommend it, except for the Beach House! In early May, there were very few restos or shops open (and those that were were chintzy) and we had to hunt for places to eat.
But to return to our hotel, it was superb! We loved being able to open our patio doors (second floor) and see, hear and feel the ocean, being only metres away (depending on the tide). My darling wife who likes to sleep in was up just before the sun to see it come up and then to begin her search for 'treasures' that the waves had left just for her. Even though the hosts left for a few days, we did meet Mark and Anne-Marie, who were most kind. And Anne-Marie was able to speak French with these two Quebecers.
If you like the ocean and that is the main reason for going, then the Beach House will be the place for you. However, its too bad that you can't transport this great hotel to another location on the Atlantic coast.

We have stayed at this establishment on several occasions on the last 3 years. The second and third floor beach front are the best. The prices are good and the service is excellent. We look forward to going back again. This was a holiday and it was all good.

My sister and I loved our stay at the Beach House. We were just steps from the beautiful beach. The lobby is so warm and inviting, and the views of the water from the large bay windows are spectacular! Anne Marie and Mark could not have been any warmer or friendlier. They have created a very cozy atmosphere. And the rooms are sweet and impeccably kept. Can't wait for the 2014 season to go back!

In a town littered with cheap motels and chintzy souvenir shops, The Beach House is a beautiful oasis. The rooms are clean, and have ocean views, fully appointed kitchens, and comfortable bedrooms. AnnMarie and Mark are wonderfully accommodating, helpful, and most of all FRIENDLY. Great for a weekend getaway or a couple of weeks at the beach.

Picked the Beach House based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and so glad we did. It was beautiful. We had a room on the second floor, it was so airy and bright. Sliding glass doors lead to a private balcony. Nothing between us and the ocean. Marc and Anne Marie were delightful to talk with, they had great suggestions on dining options and day trips. We will go back.
