Saco Motel
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Saco
Reviewed 16 October 2006

My husband & I and our daughter & family were invited to Maine for a christening this past weekend. Since we were only staying one night and just needed a clean place to lay our head and clean up in the morning, we decided not to spend hundreds of dollars for the higher end hotels. So I began a web search for local motels. This is how I came upon the Saco Motel...AAA rated and owned by the same family for 33 years.

I've stayed at many motels over the years, so my expectations were just that along with their web advertisement of "helpful, friendly & courteous staff."

Our experience with "helpful" involved a stop at the office to inquire about nearby shoe stores since my daughter had forgotten to pack her Sunday shoes. My reply was "look in the phone book. There's one in every room." Hmmm, not very helpful for a non-local.

Now, it's October and the nights in Maine are getting pretty chilly. Our rooms still have the screen inserts on the doors & windows with louvers...quite drafty! We cranked up the heat which never came on in my room (although my daughter's room was toasty--thank goodness since she had the kids).

Their good points were that, yes, the rooms were clean and after we checked out on Sunday morning to head to the church, a half hour away, we realized that a cell phone had been left behind. When we called the motel, they had already been through the rooms and had the phone in the office.

If we ever go back to visit family in that area, I think we'll try the Exit 5 Motel where my great-neice used to work and had nothing but good thing to say about--unfortunately too late!
