Very, very, very clean. Pretty close from the beach. Very quiet and safe for kids. Perfect for the family. Five minutes from the Pier. Not too far but not too close. Owners are very accomodating. Kitchenettes very efficient.

My family (myself, husband, daughter and 4 grandchildren) were in much need for this trip...As a child my parents would take us each year and we always stayed at one of the local hotels and I did the same with my children. This year I wanted something different for my grandkids, something quiet and safe and inviting and we found... More

The cottage was beautiful; the owners and staff GREAT! A short walk to the beach and heated pool. Fabulous location! Minutes from the Pier and Downtown fun. The amenities were unsurpassed. Highly recommend this wonderful place.

This was the second year we stayed at the Echo Motel Cottages, ocean front property. The cottages are extremely clean, come equipped with towels, bed linens, washer and dryer and kitchen stocked with plates, bowls, pots and pans. Trash is picked up daily, offers convenient parking, located on a quiet dead end street. Owner is always available to answer any... More

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
