The Saco Motel is the perfect, affordable, clean, and convenient place to stay when traveling through southern Maine. The rooms are spacious and clean; the family that runs the motel is very friendly and hospitable. The location is great; close proximity to Orchard beach and only a 15 minute drive to Portland. I won't be staying anywhere else when I'm...

Have stayed at this motel the past 5 years for one weekend in June and one in September, we are snowbirds. Best buy and location, rooms are always clean and owners, not paid employees, are always there, what other motel can you say that about.

My husband & I decided to choose the Saco Motel as a budget reliever. We're always looking for a way to save money but not make lots of sacrifices. This was just the right place for us! We had a very clean, and comfortable room. A continental breakfast was enough to start our day. The motel offers juice, cereal, pastries,tea...

Needed to get off the Hwy and catch some ZZZs. My son and I had been on the road long enough. Saw the sign and pulled in. Nice and polite staff. Family owned AAA discount. There is a pool. Rooms were clean, outdated decor, but what expected when taking into consideration the exterior. Good TV. Walking distance to restaurants and...

This was my fourth trip to Maine this year. We always stay at the Saco. Bob, Gisele, and Kat are so friendly and accommodating. My kids love it here and really enjoy the pool. The beds are comfy. Although it looks like a 50's flashback, many upgrades have been made to make it more modern. Flat screen tvs, dish network,...

Place was clean, friendly, and convenient. The owner even offered us his personal garage to put our motorcycle in during an overnight rain storm. Very nice people. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

This motel in Saco has just got a new sign. This place is great, family owned and operated. We got a chance to talk the owner Robert, who was able to provide us with some ice for our coolers. It was such a fantastic stay, and we were so thankful for our time there. We definitely recommend this place for...

Stayed here one night with two of my children ages 10 and 13 in peak season. To my surprise, the place was cleaner and better maintained than expected, but motel is in need of investment, renovations, striping of the old carpeting and tiling the bathrooms. Breakfast was more like a coffee and an appetizer, I wouldn't even classify it a...
