Pride Motel & Cottages
Ranked #10 of 13 Hotels in Scarborough
Reviewed 27 September 2011

We stayed in cabin 2 for 4 nights, while attending our son'e wedding in Portland. The Pride is conveniently located for many reasons. Staying at the Pride is a bit like stepping back in time....very retro. It is well-worn, but very clean. The cabins are well equipped. My siblings rented rooms in the motel, and each room had an efficiency kitchen. Off season, the price is the best in the area! We would definitely stay there again. We were slightly disappointed that the pool was closed already, as some of the days were in the 80s.

Room Tip: Off season rates are good. If you are looking for fancy this is not for you.

We spend 3 days, 2 nights here. The property, rooms and pool area are in great condition and clean. We loved the location, a short drive from Old Orchard Beach, several water parks and shopping in Portland/South Portland with the larger stores like Macy's and Cabela's. The free Wifi is really fast and there is coffee in the a.m. and a computer that you can use to check mail, surf the internet, etc. The rooms are large and they offer different types of rooms with kitchenettes also there are different size cottages for larger groups. There is laundry, vending machines, pool table and a games room. We will definately return.

Stayed 5 nights in cabin 8. It was very roomy and comfortable for my husband and I. The kitchen had all the necessary cooking and eating utensils. A full size fridge and stove is always a plus. Close to Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Old Orchard . Close to many restaurants and activities. Beaches within 3-12 miles. Cabin and heated pool very clean. Great staff and owners.

We had kids, adults, etc., etc. We loved the pool, the grounds and the rec room (not to mention the coffee every morning!) The little deli across Route 1 was great too. I hope you folks get along with them. We were one of their best customers!
Thanks!

Room Tip: Rooms/cottages were great. Very safe from traffic/noise, etc.

This is such a wonderful, family owned hotel. I found it by reading reviews like this and I am glad people took the time to write because they were spot on. Friendly, helpful, clean and fun are the words that come to mind. The kids loved the pool. The laundry facility was very helpful and the room was spotless. The only issue was the size of the motel room. It is a bit cramped for 2 adults and 2 kids but that was my fault as I did not reserve far enough in advance to get one of the quaint cottages. This is a no brainer. Stay here if you want to be pleased with your accommodations.

This was our third time here but our first in one of the cottages. It was great. Spotless, bed wasn't too firm and a well equipped kitchen. I love the pool area. We will be back again next summer

While the Pride Motel and Cottages are simple and unpretentious, the place is absolutely tops in lodgings of that category. Both the motel building and cottages are well maintained and set on a wide expanse of land -- I can understand how parents of young children love the opportunities for their little ones to run around. The room is small, but has many other positive features: windows on both sides provide good cross ventilation, beds are comfortable with nice pillows and velour blankets, TV has many channels, shower pressure is marvelous --- and.... there is a good sized fridge and microwave too.
Thw owner is pleasant and unobtrusive--- very kind person, too. At 10 pm my daughter had a bad headache and he gave us some pain reliever, which I really consider going above and beyond. Moreover, coffee is put out each morning and for those who don't have their laptops for the free wifi there is a desktop in the office.
I really would have preferred to be within walking distance of the beach but it was only a two night stay, and it is a wonderful little place! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a motel room with a lower number to be further away from busy Route One or book the cotta...
