Pretty nice hotel directly by the beach, and I think one of the best value-priced one the decoration is old but still pretty clean rooms, perhaps it is not well sound proof. We haven't tried the pool.. Front Desk staff is very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in a kitchenette that near the beach-it was great to get cold drinks and a lazy breakfast and snacks. The rooms are dated but for the value we had nothing to complain about. Short walk on the beach to the pier or by the road- didn't have to get back in the car at all!

This resort was just what we were looking for. The staff was very polite and accommodating, my first impression was that they were a little sloppy but then I realized that they were in the midst of painting and doing repairs, very understandable. The room that we stayed in was not updated as some of the other rooms are but...

We just returned from a 4 day stay. Simply lovely, everything was perfect and just as we had hoped. Great location, clean property, clean & updated room with an amazing view. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything from our initial inquiry to the end of our stay, was purely stress free! We will be back! Thanks again for a wonderful experience....

Love de new pool and Jacuzzi! Perfect location, will be back this summer. The location is right on the beach and the private balconies are great. The rooms are clean but, quite noisy, would need soundproofing.

Went back to Waves to stay in Old Orchard Beach while visiting family. The kids couldn't get enough of the new pool. The location is right on the beach and the private balconies are great. The room had a kitchenette and was very clean.

This hotel could be really something, being in a fantastic location on Old Orchard Beach, but it was only adequate. It was clean and the staff helpful and friendly. We had a ground floor room, and when the people in the room above walked about it sounded like a herd of elephants were tap-dancing up there. Mercifully they weren't up...

I live in Northern Maine and always stay at Waves when traveling south. It is the best place to stay in OOB in my opinion. Well appointed clean rooms. I usually get an Efficiency with a balcony in Buidling E. Steps from the beach. Just a short walk to a very good restaurant. Ocean views. Excellent customer service. Wifi. Who...
