We stayed at the Aquarius Motel in Old Orchard Beach the weekend after Labor Day. If you are interested in taking in the activity of downtown and the Pier, this is a great location. It's only a few blocks (or a short walk down the beach) from the Pier. The motel is right on the beach, and we could see and hear the ocean from our room, which was lovely.
The room itself was plain, but clean. Other guests were mainly quiet and respectful. There is a mini-fridge, which we found useful. The bed was not comfortable, though--hard mattress and scratchy blanket. Make sure you bring your own shampoo, as they only provided a small bar of soap.
The price, especially at this time of year (the low-season starts after Labor Day for many hotels in New England tourist towns) is very reasonable, but as they say, you get what you pay for.
I'd recommend the Aquarius to travellers who are looking for an affordable place to stay, in a good location, and aren't expecting anything fancy.
