“Didn't disappoint”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

This was our third time here but our first in one of the cottages. It was great. Spotless, bed wasn't too firm and a well equipped kitchen. I love the pool area. We will be back again next summer

While the Pride Motel and Cottages are simple and unpretentious, the place is absolutely tops in lodgings of that category. Both the motel building and cottages are well maintained and set on a wide expanse of land -- I can understand how parents of young children love the opportunities for their little ones to run around. The room is small, but has many other positive features: windows on both sides provide good cross ventilation, beds are comfortable with nice pillows and velour blankets, TV has many channels, shower pressure is marvelous --- and.... there is a good sized fridge and microwave too.
Thw owner is pleasant and unobtrusive--- very kind person, too. At 10 pm my daughter had a bad headache and he gave us some pain reliever, which I really consider going above and beyond. Moreover, coffee is put out each morning and for those who don't have their laptops for the free wifi there is a desktop in the office.
I really would have preferred to be within walking distance of the beach but it was only a two night stay, and it is a wonderful little place! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a motel room with a lower number to be further away from busy Route One or book the cotta...

Nothing but good things to say about Pride Motel & Cottages. I stayed in one of the small cottages, appropriate for a single and maybe a couple. Honestly, I was charmed from moment one by the place. It reminded me of the kind of sweet, homey cabins my family used to stay in on my childhood vacations. The pool is great, the bed was comfortable, the kitchenette and laundry room are big advantages and the grounds are absolutely lovely. Most of the cabins have a picnic table right outside, some have shaded patios, all of them allow you to park your car right beside the door, which is a huge advantage when you're coming back to the cabin with bags of stuff. Finally, the staff is friendly without being intrusive, and totally attentive. If you're thinking of staying in Southern Maine--my new favorite vacation destination--you can't do better for the buck than Pride. I'm coming back with my family next time!!

Room Tip: Cabin #6 is the perfect size if you're traveling alone.

My two young children and I stayed for two nights in July and the place was filled with happy friendly people. The have a terrific pool and play area with a swing set for the young kids that was my selling point. We stayed in Cottage 3 and enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommend it for families.

We had a wonderful time during our stay. We were in town for our son’s wedding and your accommodations made our stay worry free. We wanted to give our special thanks to the crew of young people who were in charge of getting our cabin ready for us prior to our arrival, we realized what a task that was! We will not hesitate to recommend your establishment and will return. Thank you. The Chamberlin’s

My husband and I spent the weekend at one of the Pride's cabins with our two young sons, and we enjoyed it very much. It was by far the best place we have stayed in the area in the 4 or so years we have been traveling to Old Orchard in the summer. The cabins are nicely spaced from each other and very, very nicely kept. The owner was very nice, thoughtful and helpful to the guests. We will definately return here in the future!!!
