We are the Marquis', Norman & Eunice, and have lived in Old Orchard Beach for around 30 years. After managing property for many of those years (including motels), we were fortunate to acquire The Crosswinds Motel and Cottages in March 2000.
During our first seven years on East Grant Avenue, Norman ran the motel complex by himself, while Eunice operated Coastal Awards, their other business. In November 2006, that business caught fire burning it to the ground and, thereby, allowing Eunice to join Norman in running the motel complex.
This property does not run all by itself. We have two much needed maintenance personnel and a supervising head housekeeper. In the summer we also employ housekeeping staff from different countries. They are housed on site, but most hold two jobs in the area to meet their obligations. It is a great experience for the students as well as for the entire staff.
Over the past eight years, many, many improvements have been made to the property, which gives the cottages and cabins a more homey atmosphere and the motel units have the feel of a bed and breakfast, so say our guests. We attempt to make everyone feel as if this is their home away from home.
Above all, the new and returning guests are our most important asset. Many of these guests have become close friends over the years, and we treasure those many memories and look forward to many new ones in the future.
