Our family of 4 is planning to head to the Portland area for 3 nights mid to late August for a little family getaway before school starts (dates are flexible).
We were hoping to stay somewhere around $100 a night, but that's not looking likely based on my research last night. We don't need anything fancy or smack in the middle of everything as we'll have our car; just a clean place to shower and sleep. We don't have anything specific planned for this trip yet- we just want to do some nature exploring, enjoy some lobster, maybe take a boat ride. Someone suggested we stay in Ogunquit or Kennebunkport and drive into Portland for the day instead...does it sound like that would be a better plan for us? Any suggestions on where to stay that would be more in our price range? It looks like I can get a hotel for $86 in Portland on Hotwire (think it's La Quinta) but not sure I want to lock myself in.
Thanks in advance!
