We have stayed there many times over the years as a family - big and small, solo and on business. The location is superb. You are just 10 seconds from a spectacular beach, which is miles in either direction and perfect for walking or just watching sun come up or go down. The historic pier is an interesting feature as...

Stayed here for 5 days in late September, 2012 and had a wonderful time. The rates are inexpensive, the rooms very pretty and comfortable and SPOTLESS!

Let me begin by saying that the charm of the Edgewater has left an everlasting impression upon our party. Upon arrival we encountered some difficulty parking our large vehicle and immediately the staff came and offered assistance and indicated that we would have an easier parking space the next day. Talk about customer service !! Very impressive. The lobby was... More

After seaching motels located at Old Orchard Beach, Maine for a mini last hurrah vacation during labor day weekend, I settled on the Edgewater. I like the fact that of course it was on the beach, the rooms looked immaculate and updated plus the motel was not gigantic and there was lots of restaurants near by. I booked a room... More

The Edgewater is a great place to stay in OOB. It’s a nice little lay backed hotel with great service. You easily can walk to the shops and attractions. Excellent beach access and a heated pool to boot!

The hotel is right on the beach, it's a great location, maybe 2 tenths of a mile south of the pier. The room had a scanky smell, like diapers or maybe just musty. It looked and seemed very clean otherwise. It could have used new carpet or a tile floor for wet, sandy feet. You would think a place on... More

Thank you for this review. We pride ourselves on clean and attractive rooms; nonetheless, we occasionally might miss something. In your case, it was a lingering odor. We apologize for this oversight, and will encourage our housekeeping staff to be more alert to this issue. It takes something as simple as freshly picked seashells, innocently left in the room for...

We booked what we thought was 2 adjoining rooms in the Edgewater just to get there to find that although the reception is in the Edgewater they were sending us across the street to their "sister company" which is totally substandard. They did agree to give us our deposit back if we were not going to stay, and we were... More

Came to The Edgewater for an easy end of summer hurrah! Found it to be old fashioned in a sweet and charming sense. Rooms are immaculate. The first thing I noticed was how fresh it smelled.

We found The Edgewater on trip advisor. It was #1 last year, and we were not disappointed! It feels like an Inn more than a motel. Everything is very clean, and the powder blue rooms with the beautiful white iron headboards make you feel like you're staying at Grandma's...if Grandma lived oceanfront! Even the beautiful flowers and rose lined path... More
