Loved this place. The room with the kitchenette met our needs perfectly. The Sea Drift was clean, quiet, and comfortable. My grandkids never wanted to leave the pool. The walk to the beach was about two minutes. The pier was an easy walk. I will definitely stay here the next time I go to OOB.

Excellent location. Fantasic shower and super friendly management and employees. I had to find a place last minute and was lucky to find a place right next to the beach, but I also got a last-minute price, which I very much appreciate given that I travelled by myself.

Clean, family run motel with AC in rooms. "Missy" the owner is very attentive. The rooms are clean, most with balconies and it is located directly across the street from the beach and a short walk to the pier activities. Perfect spot for a beach getaway. They also have grills that you can use for cooking. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed in a kitchenette so I can't speak to the regular rooms. The room had everything you would need to make yourself at home and we did. It's on the second floor with a balcony. Ours had a limited ocean view, just enough. A short walk to the beach. The pool was well maintained and not too busy. The prices were really reasonable, even cheap, for the type of place this is. Parking was marked for each room. The owner of the motel is on-site and that makes a big difference.

Wish I was a writer, I would be able to relate what a great stay this was for me. Very, very clean snd cozy place. Missy immediately makes you feel welcome. I doubt that anyone could have been more accommodating and kind. I have stayed across this country on business …. Even at places renowned for customer service. Each of those places could learn a lot from Missy and staff . She makes her guest’s comfort her priority.

Hi Betty, thank you for such a wonderful review, but it looks like I dropped the ball with my customer service by not responding earlier. Please accept my apology. It was a pleasure having you stay with us, and I'll bet you looked beautiful at the wedding. We hope to see you again at the Sea Drift if your venture our way, with that spiffy little sports car! Thanks again, Missy

This is our fifteenth year coming to the Seadrift at OOB (last year, 2020, we did not travel). We love it here, and never want to leave! It's a quick walk to the pier, and the beach is right across the street. It is a clean, well-maintained motel with reasonably sized rooms and a view of the beach from almost every one of them! We are really fond of the owner, Missy, and look forward to her hospitality, and seeing her every year--to us, the Seadrift Motel IS THE BEST that Old Orchard Beach has to offer! Customers for life (and I am a very fussy and particular customer!)

I will preface this review by saying I dislike staying places with exterior doors. However, when traveling to Old Orchard Beach these are the options if you don't want an Air B&B or spend a small fortune on other accommodations. I wish Trip advisor let you put 1/2 stars because I would have said this was a 3.5 rather than a 3. The owner is very nice and will do anything for you. The rooms are clean and you have fantastic access to the beach. The pool area was very clean and at night I was surprised how quiet it was there. Usually in a place like this and an area such as this you tend to have a lot of families and kids running around. So why didn't I give this a 4 or 5? The bed. The beds were very uncomfortable for me. One of the nights I actually slept in my car. Also there was no housekeeping available but you could return your old towels for new towels.

We revisited the Sea Drift to get beach access. This is a nice, well maintained hotel with a pool, parking for each room, ice and a short walk to the pier. The staff is excellent, prices reasonable and it meets all of our needs for a summer vacation spot. We plan to return.

Had an amazing vacation and made so many memories to be cherished. Motel was so sweet and cozy, we felt at home the minute we arrived. The owner was absolutely amazing and so friendly and warm. You could really see how much she cared about her guests and went above and beyond. My mom and I can't wait to go back and we will definitely be staying at the Sea Drift Motel again!!!
