we go to this location every year and always have a great time its a very short walk to the beach and the pool is great its right out side your room. the pier is a short walk and plenty of things for kids to do.
I stayed 3 nights last week and had a great experience. Cara Lou checked me in and was very friendly and welcoming. Tamara was also really friendly and helpful, and gave me great suggestions on food, and even called to price lobster for me before I went. The room was very comfortable, with the bedroom separate from the living room, which made it feel like a little home away from home. I could hear the ocean through the open windows. I would stay here again for sure.
I meant to leave this last year, but this is one of the best motels I've stayed at in Old Orchard Beach. Its clean, quiet, and has a wonderful view of the ocean. With the rides, restaurants and pier close by, entertainment is just minutes away. I try to make the trek up to the Old Colonial Motel a couple times a year. You can't beat the price and location. And like said, it's like a second home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nothing beats Roxanne's smile when checking in and out. Anything you need, she'll help you. I'll be back next year for a relaxing trip and a welcome back!
Other than it’s location, there are better places to stay in OOB. We upgraded our room to have an ocean view. Instead, we had a view of the vinyl fence surrounding the pool area, not to mention the recycling and garage bins directly outside the door or our room. Beyond the railing, we had a lovely view of the parking lot, literally 6 feet from our door. For the price, I would not stay here again. We paid an extra fee for our puppy. We should have received a discount for the overall condition of the room and surroundings. I do have to say that the king bed was comfortable. Due to COVID, the rooms could not be serviced each day. The housekeeping staff was very friendly, and helpful with anything we asked for, towels, soap, etc. there was no shampoo, and we had to go shopping at Walgreens for shampoo as all the soap and Wall dispensers were broken or empty.…
2 hot tubs...yes... 2 portable hot tubs in the parking lot! Yes..in the parking lot. Partial ocean view...yes...overlooking the parking lot. The view is quite literally overlooking the parked cars. Must say the office staff was friendly & check in easy. About all that I can say good about the place. Definitely NOT a $200+ a night motel...but that's what we paid!
