My husband and I stayed one night, booking based on the reviews on tripadvisor. The motel is very clean, is in a great location on the beach, with only a 10 minute walk to the pier. However, be aware that the rooms are not sound proofed in the least because the doors have open glass on them. Between the card... More

I do appreciate NY JeepGirl's comments and wish I had an opportunity to address her concerns in real time. We do have a policy of it being quiet at our property after 10pm. Also, the jalousie windows in the room doors do close. I'm glad that this guest found the property clean and that it is located in a very... More

Not sure how they decided to use the word "cottage" to describe the 3 large houses directly on the beach that Echo Motel owns but the one we stayed in was incredible. Recently renovated, everything was well done. Owners very responsive & helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again and have told anyone who will listen how great... More

Have spent the last 2weeks lured into a deep sleep only sea air and the rolling of waves can induce. First week in cottage Echo 3 set on the dune is so luminous, super comfortable, irreprochably clean and its wraparound veranda is beyond comparison. Second week in an oceanfront kitchenette with the same standards of cleanliness and impeccably arranged......definitely didn't... More

Almost directly on the beach, we stay during the off season in May. We always have a good time. Rooms are okay, a little outdated but its cozy. We book a room with a kitchenette which is great for us, and we can cook our meals or re-heat leftovers. Bathrooms are little especially showers, (my husband is 6ft3 firefigther) But... More

I stay here every year and I love it. The owners are wonderful people and the rooms are spic and span clean. I look forward to my trip here each September. Short walk to beach so you can come back to your room and make a lunch and bring it to the beach to eat. 10 minute walk to pier.... More

My fiance and I spent three nights at the Echo during the last week of August 2014. The room was quite spacious and the location right next to the pool was absolutely perfect for us. The amenities were very good and we loved using the grills to cook lunch and dinner. Our favorite part was most definitely the pool, as... More

Just returned home from a week at the Echo Motel and Cottages, and cannot say enough about how great our stay was. The location is perfect, steps from a pristine beach. Our room/kitchenette was immaculate and comfortable. We choose this motel because of the on-site management (Leslie & Paul) and the quiet family atmosphere. This is our 8th visit in... More

There is no place better to stay at OOB. We have tried other locations at OOB and nothing compares. Their establishment is spotless and their... More

This was our fourth year in Cottage #2 and again it was awesome. We're getting so used it it's like a second home. As usual it was spotless when we arrived and Leslie and Paul always make sure you are well taken care of. At one point during the week there were 10 of us staying overnight, even with that... More

We stayed in room #6 for one week. Two adults and 2 kids. What we liked: 1. Location; Motel is 90 feet from the sand and waves. Very convenient for a family with little kids. Also about a 10 minute walk to the pier. Far enough tp be aeay from the noise. 2.Reserved parking; Means your spot is always waiting... More
