“BEST IN OOB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

The Echo Motel & Oceanfront Cottages are hands down the best place to stay in Old Orchard Beach. Everything is perfect, just as a vacation should be! The 3 cottages are located right along the beach and have a nice area to hang out (almost like a front yard), that is separate from the beach divided by the beach grass. My family has been renting the cottages for over 20 years now and continue to get better each year! Cottage 2 was recently renovated and looks like a modern beach house and is really nice. Cottage 3 has an older beach house look to it but is still very nice. All the staff at Echo is very nice and they do little things throughout the week like taking the trash away from the cottages etc.. Paul & Leslie are very nice and friendly and always make us feel welcomed to stay at the cottages. Echo has its own heated in ground pool that only people staying at echo can use. The location of the cottages is great as the pier is only a short walk away but far enough as to where you cant hear the sound from the cottages. If you can get in at Echo, do it, you wont leave disappointed!!

Room Tip: The cottages are very clean and away from all the noise at the pier, but within walking distance.

After numerous years of visiting these cleanly, spacious, and relaxing cottages, I know that there is no better place in OOB. Sharing Echo Cottages two and three between a large family has been easy with the many bedrooms provided in each cottage. Cottage two has recently been renovated and looks amazing. The wood paneling walls look immaculate and create an extremely complacent environment to be around. Cottage three, however, has been maintained as the original look which continues to provide a "homey" feeling for those who prefer the "old-fashioned" style. The location of these cottages, beachfront, is perfect as it provides a short walk from your porch to the ocean. The cottages are settled right on the beach, however gives a sense of privacy due to the offset beachgrass distancing the cottages from the thousands of tourists and comotion. The dedicated work staff have done a great job of making vacationers feel welcomed and to make them wish to return in the future. Owners Paul and Lesile have once offered to bring a family member of mine to the hospital as he was quite ill. Though I could continue this review for hours, the conclusion is that this is the perfect place for a family vacation and you will always leave content and 100% satisfied.
We Love OOB,

My family and I have been going to Old Orchard Beach every summer now for about 7 years. The first three years we tried different motel/hotels to see which one we would like to stay at for future summer vacations. Let me tell you when I say they were all a big disappointment. They were filthy, noisy and I found the staff very rude. On our fourth trip back to OOB we were lucky enough to be able to stay at the Echo Motel. What a complete opposite experience. The rooms/property were extremely clean. The cleaning staff were very polite and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The owners, Leslie and Paul made us feel very welcome. If we needed anything, they were right there. It feels like we have been friends forever. The beach is just a few steps away. Very nice. There is also a snack bar right there. The center of town is a short distance away. Close enough to walk, but far enough away not to be noisy. We our counting down the days until we go back this summer and stay at the Echo. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!!!!

The Echo Motel is definitely on my list of places to stay if I ever get back to Old Orchard Beach. We arrived early and were able to check in right away. Leslie was very friendly and welcoming - suggested the best places for lobster (and she was RIGHT). We went to our room which was very nice, clean and had a kitchenette. We discovered it wasn't going to be comfortable for us due to some limitations on our end, so I went back to check with Leslie and we were able to switch rooms at the last minute and even got a bit of refund! The hotel is feet away from a beautiful sandy beach. It's just the right distance from the touristy shopping area... not on top of it, but an easy walk! Even though it rained both days we were in Old Orchard, we still very much enjoyed our stay at the Echo Motel. Thanks Leslie!!!!

I stayed in cottage #1 for a few years, it is beautiful, and clean. The owners are friendly and welcoming. It has a washer and dryer, a gas grill, and also has beach chairs, and toys for the kids! It was an amazing visit for the whole family!

I just came back from my vacation at Old Orchard Beach. It was amazing. We stayed at the Echo Oceanfront Cottage and we felt very welcome and safe. The owners, Leslie and Paul are very friendly and professional. It was our second time renting that cottage and it was just as amazing the second time as it was the first time. I wish I could stay there all year. We could see and hear the ocean lying down in our bed. Everything was very clean and we found everything we needed in the cottage. The cottage had also been beautifully renovated. We could easily walk to the Pier and to several excellent restaurants. The weather, the beach and the waves were fantastic. I will remember this vacation for a long time. Thanks Paul and Leslie!!!!

My girlfriend and another couple stayed here for an extended weekend and loved it. We love offseason traveling due to the smaller crowds and budget rates. This hotel was well worth the trip. We enjoyed our time here together even through a bout of food poisoning we got from a "eatery".

Nice and quiet an beautifully located. Totally worth the stay!
