Remember the summer when you were a child and your family went on vacation?

Remember how you dreamed about what you wanted to do to make your vacation perfect? First, there had to be things to do, lots of things, like miniature golf, games, amusements, and rides. Then, there had to be food - the type of food that you wanted, like pizza, fried dough, cotton candy, caramel popcorn. And there had to be a beach - a big, broad stretch of sand where you could build castles, run with a kite, or just sit and soak in the sun’s warmth. That vacation still exists at Old Orchard Beach and is waiting for your children and the child still inside of you at the Sea Cliff House Motel. Our lodgings offer a choice of clean, comfortable apartments or motel units.
