The property is situated along the main strip of the main street in the city of Old Orchard Beach, referred to by the staff of the motel as OOB.

The Beau Rivage Motel was initially built in 1966 to function as a motel. Since then, it was passed down through four generations by the family that first opened it. The current owner decided to enter the lodging industry after working a few other jobs throughout his career. After purchasing the motel, he and his family began running it and have done so for four years. Since they first got the property, they have made some changes. All of the carpets were removed from the rooms and replaced with wooden floors. They have also modernized the motel by changing the decorations. Future plans for the motel include upgrading the bathrooms in the more popular units and getting new doors for the more frequently used rooms.
