My wife and I recently took a road trip from the Boston area to enjoy the fall colors. We drove into New Hampshire on the 93 and eventually turned eastward into Maine, ending up at the picturesque town of Old Orchard Beach. Our second floor room had a balcony and view of the ocean. It was early October, the off-season,...

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We do love Old Orchard Beach as well as all of Maine. Our mindset is to try and treat each one of our guests' as if they were staying in our own home. Please do not hesitate to stay with us again when you are in the area....

Stay here over the Labor Day week. It was a nice place. The staff were friendly and helpful and they seem to work all day keeping the resort area clean. The room I had was very basic, it had a two queen beds, it also had a large refrigerator, a small stove and a sink. Also there were some basic...

We had been travelling up through southern Maine looking for somewhere to stay, and were very pleased to find an ocean front room here, reasonably priced. The staff were very helpful and friendly and whilst this is not a luxury room it has a great view of the ocean with a deck and is close enough to hear the waves....

This was not our first stay at the waves, and it certainly won't be the last. We were off season, so we got a great deal on the room (about 1/3 of the peak season price). Even if we were 2 weeks after the end of the peak season, the pool was still heated, and the spa still heated and...

These comments are not correct. Our rooms are among the cleanest in Old Orchard Beach. I would never suggest anyone but myself respond to complaints about our hotel. I personally address each and every issue that occures at my property. I would never suggest a "regional manager" would contact you as I am on property all the time. Please feel...

I found this hotel through the Maine vacation guide. It was more reasonably priced for the accommodations than anything else in Old Orchard Beach. Somehow, however, I missed others' comments on the noisy trains. The positives about the hotel are completely overshadowed by the noise of the trains at night. The train tracks are literally across the street from this...

We appreciate your review but feel as though it is very unfair to give such a low rating when your big complaint is about the location of the railroad tracks and not with our hotel. As you stated the train tracks do run down the entire length of Old Orchard Beach. There is not a hotel in town that is...

We were in Maine for a 80th Birthday party. We chose the Waves as she had stayed their many years ago and was very pleased. We were very happy with our choice. We were able to hear the waves in the evening and that is such a great thing. But the train did come through very early in the AM....

Spent 2 nights in early September in an oceanview room with two double beds, separated by the bathroom. Bathroom is small and cramped. For a short stay it's fine, beds were good and room has a small cooktop and fridge. For a longer stay, and with more than 2 people in the room, it would be too cramped. Staff are...
