We were here after peak season so the price was less, which was still plenty. The bathroom was extremely small and actually hard to turn around in. The room was clean and pretty big. There was a nice little kitchen. The beds were comfortable enough and no complaints about it. It was a bit of a walk from the main...

This is a quaint place, peaceful and very clean. I felt like I had a massage after 1 night of R&R. It is literally 60 ' from the ocean. Leslie the front desk person is friendly and informative. This is a must stay again place. I love it.

My husband and I decided to spend a few days at Old Orchard Beach. Since we never been to OOB we relied on Trip Advisor's reviews of the hotels and restaurants in the area. The only motel that was on the beach and affordable with all positive reviews was The Echo so I booked 2 nights. We were delighted with...

This place is right on the beach and within walking distance of the main strip in Old Orchard Beach - terrific place to go if the beach is your primary destination. The rooms were a bit dated, but the photos on the TripAdvisor site are accurate and the staff are great.

We enjoyed our stay. The motel was extremely clean and well taken care of. Everyone there was very friendly and nice. The motel is a 15min walk to the arcade area, but a 2minute walk to the beach. Thurs night there was fireworks on the beach which was awesome. My only suggestion would be to pack a power strip because...

My family and I recently spent 5 days at this amazing place. What struck us immediately upon opening the door to our room was how clean and fresh it smelled. Clean is actually an understatement; the entire room was immaculate. It was like we were the first ones to stay there which, given that the motel seldom has vacancies in...
