We stayed here for 4 days in August. We had a room with 2 double beds (room 105) and the set up with the second bed was a bit dissapointing. The bed faced the patoo doors so there was not a dresser at the end to have a T.V on because of the patio door. So the dresser was to... More

The location cannot be beat. They are located right on the beach and about a 10 min walk from the pier. The rooms are what you would expect. The pool is a plus with a hot tub right next to it. Great offseason rates.

We spent 3 days this week at this resort, and it was well worth the visit! The prices went down post labor day and the weather was perfect! Our room was clean and spacious and the beds very comfortable. There is a small fridge and twin oven burners for your use, as well as a small coffee pot! The grounds... More

The Waves provides a wonderful place to stay. It is very clean. There are different types of rooms some of which are more modern than others. Even the original rooms are very clean and in an old fashioned beach or camp type feel. One thing to note about all of OOB is that the train is loud. Even when not... More

Stayed in Bldg F which was 'beach side'. Private balcony with a view of the water was nice. View semi blocked by a telephone pole, but the staff advised us of that when we booked the reservation. Accomodations were adequate. Room was in need of updating but was clean. The air conditioner looked new and we were grateful for that... More

We have stayed at this place twice. The pool and hot tub are great as well as the location and entrance to the beach! It is a little farther down the strip than the other hotels so it nice and quiet. Rooms are outdated but clean. Will stay here again!

This is a nice collection if buildings. We stayed on the street side and our room was clean and perfect for a few short days. Location is great to both the beach and a quick walk down to the pier. Did not use the pool but it looked nice. They really work hard to keep the multiple buildings and area... More

We had a fun week in Old Orchard. We stayed in the Train Suite which was good for our family of 5. I think this is one if the best spots in the strip. It is not a 5 star resort but comfortable and one of the best spots in OOB. It has a nice pool and BBQ area. We... More

This hotel was the greatest bargain I got during my trip to Maine. I stayed in one of the simplest (cheapest) units, which still has an ocean view. But you can stay at the most expensive ones right on the beach. My unit had two bedrooms separated by a complete kitchen (no microwave, though), and lots of space to accomodate... More
