We stayed at the Crest in late August. The price over $300 a night seemed reasonable for a nice place, near the ocean, in August. Unfortunately, the room was not all that nice. Some of the lights did not work and the room had a strange syrupy smell. The bathroom window and the sliding glass door (which doesn't lock) were...

We only wish you had let us know your concerns while you were here so we could have addressed the issues you mentioned and given us the chance to make your stay more enjoyable.

We stayed at the Crest last week and had an great time. The rooms were clean and the location was fantastic. We were steps away from the beach which was perfect for my family. The rides, food and fun was just a short walk down the street. We stayed in room 207 and had an amazing view of the fireworks...

My husband and I and our 5 kids spent a great weekend at Crest Motel! The pool and hot tub were a big hit with my kids when we came back from our night activities. The beach was steps away and the waves kept my gang busy for hours! We had 2 rooms, one had a kitchenette. Both rooms were...

Just returned from our fourth year's week vacation at the Crest and already looking forward to next year's return! Always a fun time, walking distance to everything and steps away from the beach. Family run and family fun! The kids love being able to go back and forth from the pool to the beach!

Crest Motel is right on the water and about four blocks to the pier and the center of all the activities in Old Orchard Beach. The location is great with a short distance walk to the center of town. Crest Motel owns The Beach Gardens which is across the street and one other motel that is located next door to...

We had a wonderful time staying at the Crest Motel. The owners are very friendly and the location and rooms are spacious. Your steps from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the pier. The indoor pool and jacuzzi is great for rainy days. The kids and I loved it and plan to stay again in the future.

We were recently in town with a group of families travelling Saco and Portland for a basketball tournament. We had stayed in Portland hotels in the past and camped at OOB as a family but we wanted a good home base with lots to do for the kids. Crest was perfect. The staff (all family) are very pleasant to deal...
