Travel Blogs from Old Orchard Beach
Day two of our journey home began with a 5:00 a.m. wake up call. The beds were comfy at this Hampton Inn, but it was a much smaller hotel than the one we stayed at on the trip down in Roanoke Rapids, NC. The breakfast at this hotel in Emporia, VA, was lacking in quality and assortment. Usually there are a variety of hot items such as eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, etc. along with cereals, pastries, juices, and hot beverages. This location only had a minimal selection and the ...
It's that feeling of I must do this now. Heading northbound from Logan Airport in the storm delayed on a bus as it passes 10pm. One bag contains all the warm gear I own or borrowed.

Sorry, I'm afraid, for now, this blog ends here. The past few days have brought: 1) geocaching: very fun and interesting, 2) Sherlock (the one with Martin Freeman): my friends have been trying to get me to watch it forever, now that I have I'm in love it!!, 3) started reading Til We Have Faces by C. S. Lewis. I may return, I may not, I'm too tired to ...
... I love him too. He is too good to me and I can't get over it. Just as I can't believe how much my father on earth loves me, I can't believe how much my Father in Heaven loves me. This is Christmas; a show of our love for one another to reflect God's love for us. We celebrate on this day that God sent his Son Jesus to earth, all because of his great great love for us. Thank you Lord for this gift of a child, Jesus, the Savior of the ...
... Everyone seems to bring theirs to work here. That's cool with me, I love dogs.
We had a chat for a while (Judy and I, not the dogs) and I told her our plans for riding around New England. She then told me to hang on for a second and disappeared. She came back with a brand new book about riding in the area and handed it to me, for free. I couldn't believe it. Such amazing friendly people. She also gave me a pile of leaflets for Whitehorse which I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alouette Beach Resort Old Orchard Beach
A-is for Alouette
my wife and i just came back from an off season holiday on old orchard beach. we stayed at the alouette beach resort. its clean, comfortable and very relaxing. the staff is really something. we stayed in rm#3. really nice with a great view of the ocean. the folks who run it "the kennedys" are great and treat you as one of the family. we cant wait to go back. old orchard is great in the summer, but its beautiful up there in the fall, and the kennedys will help you out with directions for dining or foliage runs. great time, very relaxing.
Clean and Cozy
My girlfriend and I just got back from an end-of-season stay at the Alouette. Loved it from start to finish! The desk staff was super friendly, and happily let us check in early. We had a private balcony with an ocean view for sixty five bucks. You can get anywhere you want with a short walk down the beach. We had a great experience.
Excellent Vacation Spot
My husband and I stayed in Room 50 the first Weekend in August. We were quite surprised at what a wonderful hotel it was. The location was perfect: close enough to walk to the "Pier" where all the action was but far enough away that the noise didn't affect us. The beach was fabulous. It was clean and so convenient to our ocean front room. The room was as we expected for a seasonal hotel. It's not the Ritz but it certainly was to our satisfaction. It was always neat and very clean. The staff was fabulous and the food at the restaurant was wonderful.
I had expected to be sightseeing throughout our vacation - but the hotel & beach was so relaxing that we spent 95% of our time enjoying the resort. We look forward to returning there for another wonderful, relaxing vacation.
Wonderful time had by honeymooners!!!
My husband and I went up in October 2002- It was beautiful up there, very decent price, staff was extremely courteous, very clean hotel rooms, opened blinds to see a gorgeous sunrise every morning. Was a wonderful time and definitely plan to stay there again!
We stayed in Unit 49 which is one of the oceanfront rooms for 5 nights. The staff were friendly, but the room needs some serious work. When we opened the screen door to go out on the deck it fell right off, the sliding glass door didn't lock, the front burner of the stove slanted so you had to rotate your pan to fry eggs freqently and it took 20 minutes to cook one egg, there was only a shower in the bathroom..no tub, the shower head put a stream of water out that felt like you were being sandblasted, and the most dangerous part was the water would turn scalding hot without warning. I refused to let my 7 year old shower without me for fear she would get burned. The room was barely cleaned each day..so that there was a pile of sand by the end of our stay in the bathroom. Finally, checkout time is 1000 and at 0915 while on the beach for one last time we look up and see people in our room and ends up its the cleaning crew stripping our room and cleaning even before we returned the keys and checked out. Beautiful view from the room but way over priced for what we endured with the room. We met up with another couple on the beach and exchanged stories about our rooms and they had similar problems with the doors and unlike us they only had cold water in their bathroom and no water pressure.
Just OK at Alouette Beach Resort
June 2004 We stayed at the Alouette. The first room we stayed in was run down and needed lots of work rm 39. We then moved to one of the hotel rooms and that was much nicer. It is an ok place, nothing WOW about it except that is it right on the beach but not all are ocean view. The owners are friendly and helpful. I suggest you look at your room before you pay for it because once you pay for it, there's no turning back.
Great place to say
Great place to stay. Right on the beach. A short walk to downtown. Very family orientated place to go. We've been going there for two years and plan to go again this year. We go in late june before the official season starts smaller crowds and *usually* not too cold. The owners are very friendly without being obnoxious.
Love the Alouette
I come to the Alouette every year and I love it there. I love the room that I stay in and the staff is very friendly. I recommend this place highly.
Please listen to me very carefully. Run, do not walk from this hotel.
7 miles of Beach
We stay at the Alouette several times a year. The owners and staff are very friendly and we love to walk the well kept Beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It is near,but not too near the pier. The best place in the State of Maine to eat breakfast is Michelles is up the hill.
