When my sisters and I starting going on mini-vacations each summer we chose The Friendship Oceanfront Suites because of the recommendation of one sister who had been staying there with her daughter (and then her granddaughter) over the years! And, because my sisters (includes one cousin...but the same thing in our eyes) and I are great friends we agreed to...

I loved the location of the hotel. it's at a quiet end of Old Orchard Beach, away from all the crowds and carnival like atmosphere. I loved having easy access to the beach. I liked that the beach was private and that I did not have to sit with crowds of people on top of me, a huge plus. The...

We went to this place 3 years in a row, in summertime. The room is ok, nothing particular. We loved the place because of the very nice pool , perfect with kids. Also for the proximity of the beach and the nice view from our room. The place is very relax and perfect for families with kids. Unfortunately we didn't...

Hotel is 1/2 mile from the center of OOB which is great because you leave all of the crowd behind. The beach is wonderful. The rooms are fine for a getaway, dated, but it's not a big name hotel and is clean. Bathroom is cramped. The staff was great. We needed to get some paperwork done when we arrived and...

I think a lot of reviewers on this may be long time loyal patrons who overlook a lot or folks who are used to seeing what I saw as normal in their hotel stays. I will say the staff was nice and the coffee and muffins in the am was a nice touch. They also had tea for my wife...

Great location if you want to be directly in old orchard beach but not on the boardwalk. Check-in was easy but be mindful if you arrive late because what they don't tell you is that the front desk closes at 10pm. A bit inconvenient if you are coming from a distance or after work. Room was sufficient for a quick...

This has absolutely nothing to do with the color of someones skin. We have a check out time of 10am. This information was sent to this guest in the confirmation and is also on our website. This guest was still in the room at 11:30am when we contacted them to find out what time they would be leaving. They told...

Great location and view. If you're expecting luxury, this isn't the place for you. But if you want a reasonably priced suite, an ocean view, and walking distance to the pier, Friendship Oceanfront Suites is a great choice. Budget was our number 1 concern because we were only going to be there 12 hours, and we were pleasantly surprised with...

There is nothing to complain about! The staff is amazing! There is a picture perfect view from every room! There is a beautiful clean heated salt water pool. Also a large yard for the kids to play, have cook outs, play yard games or just sit and relax. You can view the fireworks from the pier right from their front...
