The Edgewater was a great motel, the office staff and cleaning staff were exceptional. We had a very nice room with the ocean just steps away. Our son and his family were staying in another room also. It was a short walk to the pier. My only complaints were minor, the sheets on one bed were very wrinkled and old...

We usually stay at another motel in OOB, but this time we wanted to try another place. We weren't disappointed. The Edgewater is right on the beach and has a heated pool. Our room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and a beautiful ocean view. It also had a 2-person whirlpool bath and a small kitchenette. Our room...

My brother and I stayed at the Edgewater for 2 nights/3 days and it was awesome. The front desk (Pierre?) was very friendly and efficient with check in and check out. The morning coffee was excellent and they never ran out. The room on the second floor was really nicely appointed. The sinks outside the bathroom are a bonus as...

We have been staying there for 8 years in a row. Everything is perfect, the only reason for not giving it 5 stars is because of the way the rooms are cleaned (barely acceptable). But, the location is perfect. The pool is always clean and warm. The people at the reception desk are always smily and kind. Enjoy your stay...

Have stayed at other spots in OOB. The EDGEwater has now become a favorite spot for our family. Rooms clean,nicely appointed, short walk to the beach,heated pool, most of all professional staff meeting the needs of their customers. That was impressive for us. I liked the 2nd floor deck common area for reading the morning paper and watching life go...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Edgewater. Coming from several states away it makes one nervous to find what they signed up for. We were so happy to find a clean, decent sized room right on the beach! Easy walking distance to the entertainment area, but far enough away that you don't get the noise or have to deal...

The location of this hotel was perfect! Right on the beach, just minutes from the action of OOB. However the rooms were much smaller than they appeared in the photographs. We ended up upgrading to a bigger room upon arrival because of the size of the room. The staff was very accommodating. The rooms had a smell like there had...

The rooms were gorgeous and beachy! Bright white, blues and wood floors. The wash closet separate from the sink was a girl's makeup counter delight! We checked out a few places before settling on this one. It was a sure winner! It is Canadian owned (third generation) or so we were told by the kind front desk person. The pool...
