If you're passing by on US Rte. 95 in Maine, Old Orchard is worth a few hours as a side trip but I would not make it a destination. Most of the motels are older tho clean enough and most have a pool, even those...More

We had a great experience in the hotel, the beach was lovely, but for food we went to Kennebunkport and Portland. Will review there.

Took our son on a day trip to OOB! Beach was so clean. Lifeguards were on point. The ocean was freezing but worth every single grain of sand we dragged home

Usually the water temp is mid-upper 60's by end of July. It's upper 40's at end of May. Tops out in the low 70's by end of August. It's never truly warm. Maybe 73F if it's been a hot summer. It's never truly warm.
