Set in the heart of Old Orchard Beach on a quiet oceanside street, the Echo Motel and Cottages offers a convenient, comfortable and affordable spot for a family vacation. At this oceanfront property, you’ll enjoy miles of wide sandy beach, an onsite heated pool, and more activities located at the pier and in the nearby town. In summer, families also enjoy local festivals, fairs, concerts, and fireworks.
A variety of room configurations are offered in the motel to suit most families’ needs and all rooms include a private bathroom, microwave oven, refrigerator, air conditioner, television, telephone, hair dryer, iron and ironing board and in-room safe. A kitchenette is available in select motel rooms. Oceanfront cottages feature wraparound decks with stunning views of the beach and bay, and provide a perfect choice for families. The cottages are either newly constructed or have been recently updated, accommodate up to eight guests, and are located directly on the ocean. Wi-Fi and parking are complimentary.

The reviews say “immaculate” and I would agree. Our room was very clean!!! Short walk to the beach! A perfect distance from town! WiFi was weak and the outlets were limited, other than that, it was great!!!
We arrived tired from driving five hours wanting to rest and discovered that the gathering table for the entire motel was placed just several feet outside our room with a sign posted next to it quiet 10 pm to 8am. Children weee screaming back and forth to parents in there room across the corridor as they were sitting there hours playing around table and this continued at breakfast the next morning around 830 and most of the day as it was not a beach day with no consideration for people in our room 3 . This motel gave no warning of this table being there a total invasion of any privacy and quiet time and sleeping past 8 if anyone used the table early to people using that room as well as loud noise all day and night if young screaming children at it. The table there next to room and parking lot area on the corner as well as fairly close to rooms 6 and 7 should be removed and just the table outside room for 2 be there and inside room and obviously we didn’t use our table outside room with people on top of us at that big table. The ocean view the entire point we wanted the room 3 was a frosted half window in kitchen with view standing only and when open do to frosting letting out the air conditioning also not explained. I would absolutely never stay here ever again. You may see picture of table by room and frosted window above air conditioner in kitchen .
