We were pleasantly surprised to find that the 1 bedroom suite we reserved had 4 separate sleeping surfaces---two double beds, a single bed, and a trundle bed. There was also a small kitchenette. The room was clean enough but in need of updating. There was some kind of red stain on the cover of the box spring (on the side,...

We stayed in OOB for two night on a last minute before school trip with our kids so are choices were somewhat limited. Based on reviews and comments we opted to try the crest for the first night and ended up staying across the street the second night for half the price. The room was clean except the doors, both...

I am sorry we did not meet your expectations, as you say beachfront properties with short seasons up and down both coasts of the USA are all about location. We are no different here in Old Orchard Beach, the value is the beach. We maintain a clean, family oriented older beach property, we price ourselves competitively with the market keeping...

Ya know, when trying to book a vacation online in a state far away you are kinda taking a shot in the dark. All you have to go by are online marketing, online reviews and word-of-mouth,. We were extremely pleased with the Crest Motel and what Paul and his staff had to offer. Where to begin? We arrived an hour...

This was my family and I second visit to the motel. It was daughter Emma's 8th birthday which I noted in the reservation when I made it and we were blown away when we arrived. Upon checking in when I said we were there for my daughters birthday they were like you must be Emma, the look on her face...

We stayed at the Surf Inn section, a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and a beautiful big private balcony. Everything was absolutely clean, wifi was perfect, all amenities were fully functional and the AC could go strong if you needed it to. A flat screen TV is also provided in either room with many channels to choose from....

Nothing fancy but it is only. 2-star hotel. Close to the beach and other attractions. We came to Maine just to eat lobster and this was a great place to stay on a budget. I would recommend and maybe even use again. Very friendly owner and staff. Parking was a bit of a challenge but it seems to be the...

This was our second time staying at Crest, and they did not disappoint! This time we had a standard poolside room and it was very clean and well-kept, and a decent size for our family of 4. We loved the nice touch of having a small kitchenette - counter, drawers, small fridge and microwave - perfect size for storing snacks...
