“Best Location on OOB for 3 generations under 1 roof.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

We just came home from a week stay on Cottage 2 at the Echo. We couldn't have asked for a better location and accomodations. The cottage had g we neeeded and more, The high speed internet and good cell phone coverage for my husband who still had to work part of the day. Close location the the Pier for the young adults and the beach right outside our door for keeping a close eye on the grandchildren and a grand view for me to sit out on one of the 2 wrap around decks to relax.
We used the pool at the motel every day and played and played in the sand.
The cottage was spacious and very well equipped. They thought of everyting when furnishing from lobster pots to salt and pepper shakers.
We cooked everyday on the grill provided. The washer and dryer and dishwasher were an added bonus.
We will definately stay there again if we can spend the whole week. It was a beach experience most of us can only dream of.
I checked the Business Center box because we brought everything we needed to use in the cottage. I checked the fitness center box because the beach was right outside our door for walking.

We spent a week at the Echo Motel / Echo Side. The accomodations are magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to drag ourselves away from the hotel to go to the beach (about 35 feet away). The outdoor pool is heated and in the sun, so you can literally be at the pool one minute or at the beach the next.

Our kids are 14 and 17 and they enjoyed every day of their summer vacation and if they needed some quiet time, they each had their own bedroom to escape to.

Restaurants are close by, but it was wonderful having a very large kitchen that I could prepare my familys meals in.

The three bedroom house has a great sea breeze in every room , so if you are not fond of air conditioning, this is the house to stay at. Overall I would say this is probably the best hotel / house we have ever stayed at on vacation and believe me my wife is hard to please!

Paul and Leslie are on site owners and are two very down to earth people. They would not turn you away or say they are "too busy right now" when you have a question or if you need something. They attend to each indviduals needs. I would recommend the Echo Motel to all!!

I would highly recommend the cottages at the ECHO MOTEL AND COTTAGES. We just came back from a week long stay in cottage 2 (OCEAN FRONT). The cottage was just totally renovated. Everything is brand new. The cottage is very large, clean and has all the comforts of home: Washer/ Dryer, dishwasher, private gas grill, and 2 wrap around decks with breathtaking views of the ocean. No expense was spared during renovations and has a great New England Beach theme throughout. Prices are very reasonable. We can't wait to go back to Old Orchard next Summer. We can already hear the ECHO calling us back. I will never stay anywhere else. A++++++ RESORT!!!

My family just returned from vacationing in Old Orchard Beach and we stayed at one of the Echo's Oceanfront Cottages. We were so happy with our stay. The house was absolutely beautiful. It has been recently renovated and everything is brand new. It was squeaky clean and tastefully decorated .The oceanfront view is spectacular. The house has a double deck and you can sit out and watch the ocean for hours on end. What is also great is that you have a private beach directly in front so the children can play and you do not have to worry about them. The dishwasher and washer and dryer were an added bonus, especially when you have children. There is so much to do, and we can walk everywhere, the location is just perfect. I highly recommend the Echo Motel and Oceanfront Cottages and I can't wait to return next year.
