D'Allaire's Motel and Cottages
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Biddeford
Reviewed August 26, 2007

Our family visited in August 2007. This was our second year staying at Dallaire's. Three years ago the current owner purchased the property and has been doing upgrades and improvements to all the cottages and grounds. The cottages look fresh and have new roofs. The purchase of new bedding and updating the interior of the units can be seen since our visit last year. For the money, it is a comfortable place to vacation. We didn't have to worry about the kids since there was plenty of room to play, whether it be shooting pool or playing in the pool. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. They take pride in their motel and cottages. Every time we go, it gets better and better! It's not a 5 star hotel, but we certainly enjoyed our 7 day stay and hope to return again next year.

Myself, along with my wife and kids had a wonderful stay. The playground, pool, billiards, and basketball kept the young ones busy and happy. The rooms were very clean and the service was excellent. The facilities were well maintained and we are goin to come back every year. The new owners, the Rioux's, made us feel right at home. No complaints!

When arriving at this establishment we checked in and drove on to our cabin. Already unimpressed because of the ugly old 70’s chairs on the decks, the building that looked like it was going to fall over which was suppose to be a BBQ hut, but it only had one disgusting looking baroque and a broken swing and an old mini golf course that is no longer in use. From the minute you drive in all you can see is tacky decorations, and this is only the outside. The inside of the cabins were far worse. From the minute you open the door prepare for disappointment! Upon opening the door all you can see is a poorly furnished, ugly decorated smelly cabin. When they say these cabins are fully equipped they are lying. It had a love seat for seating in the living room, a 19’ television and a tiny table with cheap folding chairs for your dining room table. The border that was on the top of the walls continued right onto the curtains. This fully equipped kitchen was nothing more then a small sink sunk into a cheap pressboard counter. It also had a brown coloured fridge a cheap microwave and dishes that didn’t match. We had planed on eating in our cottage which was the reason for getting it but that didn’t take place. We only ate snacks their with paper plates and plastic cutlery, we hadn’t wanted to eat on plates that had ant spray all over them. You see when we checked in we found ants at the kitchen, so we went up to the front office and explained and we got back ‘ Oh yeah there is an ant problem in all of our cottages’ and this man came down and sprayed bug spray all through the cabinets and the sink. The bathrooms had old fixtures that looked ready to break and were stained, the shower was a stand up one that looked like it had every disease known to man! We went out and but a shower mat that same day! There was also pealing paint and the light above always seemed to flicker, VERY UNSAFE! Both the bedrooms had old 70’s orange carpets that had stains on them and smelled very bad! The bedrooms had comforters that didn’t fit and miss-matched furniture. The sheets were very clean though! Also one of the bedrooms had a great view (see pictures) IT HAD A VIEW OF OLD CHEMICALS AND BROKEN TOLETS! This was disgusting! The whole cabin had a smoking smell even though it was non-smoking! And the second day we were there they hadn’t cleaned the room! These chambermaids asked for tips so we left one, what did we receive? They switched the towels and took the garbage! They didn’t clean the cabin what so ever, we put a complaint in the office and they came back and vacuumed the smelly carpets and swept the floors. Wait a minute, when we pulled out this was the same person who went in to clean the cabin! So the same one sent was the same one that supposedly cleaned it! We were so disappointed! Stay away if you can! This dump needs to be closed!

My wife and I have been going to D'Allaire Motel and Cottages since the mid-1990's. Formerly owned by the Poirierfamily and now owned by Chris Rioux , it was quite the relaxing place for us to go. Clean and cozy would best describe this facility, and the fact that its so close to the beaches, racetrack, and Kennebunk shopping made this a worthwhile trip each vacation time. Chek them out, there is something for everyone. Chris Paris --- Stafford, Ct
