A working vacation for me but a much enjoyed relaxing vacation for my husband and friends for this two week trip. Previous years we had only stayed one week but we always left wishing we didn't have to go. This year, we decided to stay for two weeks and that's exactly what the doctor ordered. Imagine sitting at your dining...

Arrived on the August 27 departed on the 6th of September. First time staying here. Loved the fact they are right on the beach and have assigned parking spaces. Very satisfied with the room. There are a few things that could be different. Wishing smoking on the walkways in front of rooms could be moved. It prevents those who don't...

Seems we got the room directly under the party suite! No working phone in room so couldn't even call anyone. No manager or owner on site. Rooms clean but definitely in need of renovations. No extras such as shampoo, coffee, ice, the basics you'd expect to have.

We have been staying at the Skylark for 6 years now and highly recommend the place. This is the only place on the beach that has its own private grassy overlook of the ocean as well as grills and sitting areas as well. The rooms all have ocean views and are equipped with their own fridges. We have met so...

The room was a tomb. Absolutely,no view . The view is small alley parking lot and an elevated two foot wide cement walkway. On the walkway there is a faded plastic type chair. In it people sit and smoke right at your door. Literally, right at your door. There sits the air conditioner to your room that draws the smoke....

We especially want to say kudos to Marie, she is an...

I've found this to be one of the friendliest, quiet family Inns in Old Orchard Beach. Very clean rooms with very helpful staff. Right on the beach and so close (but not too close) to the hopping downtown shops and amusement park. Highly recommend staying here 👍🏻
