We just returned from a one week stay at The Edgewater. It is a lovely motel, right on the beach and steps from all the attractions of OOB. Five minute walk to the amusement park. We stayed in one of the two room suites. Although it is spacious and very clean, it is located right on the corner of a...

Price for a week was ok its during the Summer Tourist season so rates on all OOB Hotels go up. No AARP or AAA member Discounts which is a minus. They should offer some discounts but then I feel any Hotel should do this . Its good customer relations. The rooms are clean ,but they do not change the bedding...

We went to Old Orchard from July 1st to july 4th. We had the Sandhouse number 4. Parking just in front of the room. The sandhouses are located across the street from the hotel and the beach. The railroad track is just behind the sandhouses but even if the train pass in the night, it didn't wake us up. Our...

Old Orchard Beach is a tourist mecca--particularly if you have young or teenage children. If you want quiet & romantic, go somewhere else or visit here off-season. The Edgewater is one of many motor inns that line Grand Avenue. Although their website mentions ocean-front or ocean-view rooms, based on the way the building is laid out, these are few and...

If you are looking to be in Old Orchard Beach, the Edgewater is a good place to stay. The rooms are clean and spacious. I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. However, it is a hotel and there's lots of noise around. You are on a main road, there's lots of people as well.

We spent Memorial weekend and the weather was terrible this year rainy and cold; what made this trip memorible was the kindness of front desk staff. Jeanne who greeted us on arrival made sure we where happy with all our requests and informed us where we find great seafood in town; just a few walking step to a great restaurant...

Start your vacation with a smile from Jean at the front desk and you already know everything will be just perfect. Amazing staff, amazing location. Rooms are beautiful and functional. By far the best hotel in its price range for OOB. For rooms that have a lesser view of the ocean there is a nice big deck. Showers actually have...

We just spent a few days at The Edgewater. As usual, it was awesome! Personnel is courteous. Rooms are quite clean. A must if you go to OOB! Furthermore, there is a fine restaurant right next door (Joseph's). Un remarquable petit motel très bien tenu, très propre avec un personnel souriant et avenant. Si vous descendez à OOB, n'ayez aucune...
