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...

My family has gone back to this hotel for the past 5 years. The management is excellent. Rooms and pool are always very clean and well maintained. Beach is just steps away and walking distance to entertainment. Deffinetly worth the $.

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...

The location is spot on. A couple of blocks from the Pier. The walk is great. Easy, safe and short. The beach entrance is right outside the pool. Our room was #27. We are 2 adults and 2 teens. The full size beds were too small for us but the room was clean and a good size. The view from...

The Edgewater was great all around for our three-night vacation in OOB. The property is well-maintained and exceptionally clean. Kudos to the housekeeping staff and management.
