Pros: They had a sub shop downstairs.. that seemed promising..
Location: 5-10 walk to downtown.
I booked the reservation in July and showed up on 7/3 and was told they couldn't "find" the reservation. The response of the staff was "they did to me again". You would think that if you've had an issue with online bookings in the past you wouldn't continue to use that service but that didn't seem to matter to the front desk of the Moby Dick Hotel. Instead of the reserved 2 twin bed room with a kitchenette that was reserved, we were offered a single bed box of a room (mind you we had 2 other people staying with us) with a small college fridge and broken AC. Had to laugh when we were told that the tv shuts off sometimes and you just need to "get up and plug it in again". All this and they also wanted to charge more than the agreed upon price on Expedia. Mistakes happen and if the staff had done anything to try and appease the situation I wouldn't have written this review. I thought they would have offered a free night in the future or some money towards the more expensive room that we now had to get but no, nothing was offered but a "sorry". We ended up staying at the Aquarius down the street. A little more expensive but well worth it.

It was close to the beach, but very outdated.

Posted Aug 2, 2013
Pros: The staff was pleasant
Cons: Fresh paint, new carpet, new beds, new linens, new pillows, new air conditioner.
Location: Orchard Beach, Maine
Train behind the motel blowing its horn as it passed 2:00 in the morning. One day it rained all day, so it was hot and we decided to watch TV, but the air conditioner was so loud you could not hear the TV. The toilet broke once and it was found that a Christmas tree hook was used to hold it together. I repaired it and then another time if plugged up. Beds were uncomfortable, the screen door fell off several times and the door lock would stick so badly it took two of use to open it. There was no ice and no breakfast. This room needed a complete do over.

Pros: Location was good and conveiniant and small kitchen was nice to have.
Cons: Mattress was almost too uncomfortable to sleep on, an update is needed. Room decorations were so bad that it was kind of funny.
Location: Walking distance to everything in Old Orchard Beach. Ocean in right across the street.
Motel was in a good location on the strip, but unfortunately overpriced for what it is.

Great Stay at The Moby Dick Motel

Posted Jun 24, 2012
Pros: Location, Comfortable and Clean, 2nd Balcony View of the ocean, small variety store downstairs-fantastic sandwiches!
Location: The location was perfect-right across from the beach access and restaurant bar and nice stroll to the pier.
My husband and I stayed our last night of vacation at the Moby Dick in Old Orchard Beach. This stay was one of our best on the trip! We loved Old Orchard Beach and the Moby Dick was in a great location, the beach access is right across the street with a great restaurant/bar overlooking the ocean. Walking distance to the pier and shops. The hotel was very clean, our room had a balcony and we could see the ocean. Overall, would highly recommend the Moby Dick Motel.
