Hotel's Favourite
I stayed 3 nights last week and had a great experience. Cara Lou checked me in and was very friendly and welcoming. Tamara was also really friendly and helpful, and gave me great suggestions on food, and even called to price lobster for me before I went. The room was very comfortable, with the bedroom separate from the living room, which made it feel like a little home away from home. I could hear the ocean through the open windows. I would stay here again for sure.

I meant to leave this last year, but this is one of the best motels I've stayed at in Old Orchard Beach. Its clean, quiet, and has a wonderful view of the ocean. With the rides, restaurants and pier close by, entertainment is just minutes away. I try to make the trek up to the Old Colonial Motel a couple times a year. You can't beat the price and location. And like said, it's like a second home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nothing beats Roxanne's smile when checking in and out. Anything you need, she'll help you. I'll be back next year for a relaxing trip and a welcome back!

Other than it’s location, there are better places to stay in OOB. We upgraded our room to have an ocean view. Instead, we had a view of the vinyl fence surrounding the pool area, not to mention the recycling and garage bins directly outside the door or our room. Beyond the railing, we had a lovely view of the parking lot, literally 6 feet from our door. For the price, I would not stay here again. We paid an extra fee for our puppy. We should have received a discount for the overall condition of the room and surroundings. I do have to say that the king bed was comfortable. Due to COVID, the rooms could not be serviced each day. The housekeeping staff was very friendly, and helpful with anything we asked for, towels, soap, etc. there was no shampoo, and we had to go shopping at Walgreens for shampoo as all the soap and Wall dispensers were broken or empty.

Responded 30 Aug 2020
We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay, we do our best to make everyone as comfortable as we can while they stay with us. Our rooms and the condition of our motel are up to code with the local zoning boards. As for ocean view, every room marked as one, you can see the ocean from it. We cannot do much about most issues, but if you had come to the office and spoke with one of our friendly staff members, we could have helped with shampoo and soap, as we do keep a stock of it in our housekeepers room. We hope this helps out, and we hope you have a great day.

2 hot tubs...yes... 2 portable hot tubs in the parking lot! Yes..in the parking lot. Partial ocean view...yes...overlooking the parking lot. The view is quite literally overlooking the parked cars. Must say the office staff was friendly & check in easy. About all that I can say good about the place. Definitely NOT a $200+ a night motel...but that's what we paid!

We apologize for any issues you may have had with our motel during your stay. Ocean view does mean you can see the ocean, it doesn't mean it is the only thing you will see. Our hot tubs are not portable, they are the same as you would find in most smaller motels. Thank you, and have a great day!
