We stayed here last week after a last minute decision to finally take a family vacation after several years of not being able to get away. The place was immaculate and had the old time feel of a family vacation spot. The rooms are a little dated but you could eat off of the floor. We were only able to...

This was our second time at the Friendship and we are looking forward to going again next year. We have a three year old and the suite is perfect for his earlier bed time. The rooms are clean and updated with two TV's, a new sofa bed, and kitchenette. Every room is footsteps from the beach or ocean and the...

Our annual stay at the Friendship is always a highlight of our summer. The rooms are clean, and it's a great bonus to have 2 separate rooms and a kitchenette, although the rooms are dated and rather small for a family. All rooms look over the pool and ocean... very well kept grounds. Nice pool area, grassy area for kids...

Love it here. Right on the beautiful, clean ocean. Pool is a great plus for a morning swim before hitting the beach. Can't wait for August..it's a yearly family trip. Easy walk to the pier on the street or the beach. Staff are great and so are the rooms with the sleeping and living sections!

You are paying for the location. Everything inside the room is old. You have beachview and can access the beach from the hotel. I wouldn't stay here again. No complaints with the hotel but the whole place can use a facelift.

The very first thing I noticed were the abundance of spider webs on the guard rails. I know spiders can rebuild a web in a day but really, try spraying the nasty things! The room was antiquated. The ceiling tiles looked like they would fall any minute. They were old and dingy, giving the room a dark feel. The bathroom...

Stayed here due to larger room sizes than many of the other hotels is Old Orchard Beach. Layout is a bit strange with the sink outside the tiny bathroom, and only a stand-up shower, which my young children didn't really care for. Beds were comfy. Pool was clean and kept reasonably warm. Customer service and housekeeping were very good.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights this past weekend and we really enjoyed it here! The hotel is very clean, definitely not updated, but the rooms are large for 2 people and the balcony has a very nice view of the beach/ocean. Staying on the top floor is a must, the rooms downstairs all face the pool and...
