We booked at the Saco motel for our recent vacation to Old Orchard Beach. It is about a 15 minute drive to the main beach. You can also use the trolley. We did not use the trolley on this trip but on our next may do so. The motel itself is aged but well maintained and clean. It is a... More

Another great stay with the Paganos! Our family visits Maine 4 or 5 times a year. We always stay at the Saco Motel. If you are looking for high prices and an interpersonal atmosphere, this is not the place for you! Bob, Gisel, and Katherine are friendly and very personable. Motel is Vintage 50's (for those of us that remember)... More

Take a step back in time. ..this is an old school motel, may not have all the modern amenities (flat screen tv, feather beds), but you will not find a more welcoming staff or spotless room & outdoor pool anywhere. We cannot wait to stay again!

Stayed on our way to Acadia, made reservation a couple weeks before. On the drive up got a call, asking if we would be later in the evening, when we answered in the affirmative, they explained how we could get in our room and left the light on for us, not just an expression here. Room really clean and in... More

Great place to stay in Saco ME. Clean, quiet and comfortable close to restaurants. Hotel is on US `1, easy access from I-95. Family owned, well maintained units, would highly recommend. It's about 1/2 an hour from downtown Portland.

A small jewel of an old-time motel. Nothing fancy, but everything is good enough or better. Fair prices, nice people, comfortable, neat, clean surroundings. Food options within walking distance; even more within driving distance. About 15 minutes to Old Orchard Beach, but also a welcome escape from its hustle and bustle.

We've been traveling to Maine for over 30 years. Several years ago, we found this gem and adopted it as our home base. After being on the road all day, (driving or shopping) it is great to be assured of a clean, comfortable bed and hot shower. The property is well cared for with nice landscaping and sparkling pool. The... More

Came as part of an annual group trip. The location is great-easy access to local attractions, beaches, restaurants etc. You get a parking space right in front of your room with an outside table and chairs. The staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean as is the pool. They put out a continental breakfast and cookies,... More

My daughter and grandchildren live in the area. We visit every month during the season. Awesome pool! Clean rooms with telephone, microwave, refrigerator and Wi-Fi! Nice family-owned motel with free continental breakfast.

We had a great two-night stay at the Saco Motel. This place has a cute retro exterior and is very well taken care of. The rooms and the pool are all super clean and our bed was very comfy. The check-in was friendly and efficient and we really appreciated the assigned parking spot in front of our room! It was... More
