Wow, this is a different type of hotel and did we love it or what. It rained one day and we stayed in with some board games and relaxing in the porch. Good family time and then beach is right there when it was sunny. We stayed in a little efficiency unit by the pool and it was comfortable for... More

Honest and good service is at the top of the list for me besides location and accommodations. I KNOW that I left behind a VERY SENTIMENTAL heart shaped necklace. And after several attempts to call them, no one 'seen it'. My future review, recommendation and stays at this place will depend on their interest in being honest and returning something... More

I had high expectations based on reviews and the look of the place. However, I stayed in a room on the 3rd floor of the house. It may be a different experience for a big family in another style room. I expected older and quaint, but I did not expect what I got. I got a room that had cracks... More

Ocean House is a great place to stay for a family with a tight budget. The rates are good and you are right on the beach. They have many different types of accommodations to choose from ranging from $90 a night to $300 a night. The house, motel rooms and pool are old and definitely not modern, but very clean... More

Clean and close to the water, no major issues with this place. Nice view from the balcony and very short walk to the beach. If you don't mind dated furniture and a more rustic style you would enjoy this motel. Some rooms may have a subtle unpleasant smell that's nothing too bad. Pool is heated and quite nice, no lifeguard.... More

For 9 years , we go to Ocean House with children. We love it . They made a lot of improvements. Perfect for kids : swimming pools, grassy area , 30 seconds from the beach and 5 minutes from the Pier. We like the rooms 1 and 2. They have a patio door leading directly onto the beach. We will... More

Lisa and I are actually at this property as I write this review. We opted for the motel portion of the property. Room was clean, the size is cramped and small but manageable for two persons with two under full size beds in the room. The room is within walking distance of the beach and the pool is right outside... More

Like others have mentioned the Ocean House has one major thing going for it--the location. Situated right on the water and a short walk to the pier, the location can't be beat. But the location is where things start and end. We were originally put up in a room which is right on west grand--the main drag at old orchard.... More

Room was small for 4 people and parking in bad but you are right on the beach. Wonderful pool and grills to cook your suppers. Walking distance to Old Orchard Pier and amusements. Staff is friendly. Will go back again.

This was the only place I found that had connecting rooms. We are a family of 6 so this was perfect for us. We were there for 2 weeks. Each room had a double bed and a futon. Also a kitchenette which was convenient. You can't beat the location! Just steps to the beach and a short walk to Palace... More

“If you want basics, stay in the House itself (for ocean lovers). If you want air conditioning cable tv, a kitchen etc, stay in one of the motel units. The Ocean House has all these kinds of rooms so be sure to ask what you want.”

“The side motel had cable, tv, air conditioning and a nice kitchen. The old house facing the ocean is the real star if you are looking for a taste of the past splashed with quiet and wifi for dash of technology. The front rooms are also are part of this motel so if you call, be sure to specify what you want, because they have it all.”
