“Delightful!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

This was our first trip to Old Orchard Beach and it won't be our last, mostly due to this terrific little place. What can I say that hasn't already been said in the glowing reviews? The owners are salt-of-the-earth fantastic folks, the location to the beach is the BEST and the rooms are comfy and clean. Our girls (11 and 8) felt comfortable and were very impressed and grateful for the loan of the boogie boards. Everything has been considered for your comfort and enjoyment at the Echo Motel. We WILL be back!

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any room here - pick up some groceries and store them in the...

I have been visiting Old Orchard Beach for the last 15 years and we always return to the Echo. We have never been disappointed with the service and enjoy the quiet location with the convenience of walking to the beach or relaxing by the pool. The owners are very helpful and friendly and make you feel welcomed. Our children are teenagers now and they have always enjoyed their vacation at the Echo and can't wait to return!

Great location, about a 15 minute walk away from downtown/the pier. Clean rooms, great owners, so close to the beach, clean pool! Great place to stay, very friendly and family oriented. Have been loyal customers for the past 5 years :)

I cannot say enough of how clean the hotel and cottages are. The owners and staff are the friendliest people I've ever engaged in in all my years of traveling. I give the Echo Motel two thumbs up and five stars!

We have been vacationing in Old Orchard Beach Maine for 45 years and have stayed at most of the beach front properties. We found the Echo Motel and Cottages about 10 years ago and won't stay anywhere else. The motel rooms and cottages are well appointed and are always spotless. They have a wonderful cleaning crew! The owners are friendly and remember all of their guests by name, making them feel welcome upon their return each year. The location is also ideal in that the hotel and cottages are within walking distance to the downtown area but are far enough away to avoid the noise. Overall. a wonderful place for families to enjoy a summer vacation!

We arrived to the Echo Motel at 1030am and didn't realize that the check in time was actually at 3pm. We were however able to park and take a walk on the beach (right behind the building) We came back around 11 and the room was already cleaned and ready. What a wondering team they have. The rooms were very clean, and QUIET! Excellent location, close to the pier and all the entertainment yet just far enough away! I asked the owners where to go to eat, they suggested the Surf 6 which was to die for! We will deffinatly be staying there again...also the pool was excellent!
