We have spent a week each summer for the past three years at Echo Side, part of Echo Motel & Oceanfront Cottages. Our experience with the on-site owners, Leslie and Paul, is nothing but positive. They, and their staff, are friendly and helpful with local information. The location is great as you are only steps to a beautiful sandy beach...

My family and I have been going to the Echo Motel and Cottages for the past 10 years. We began this yearly trip when my children were small and we fit comfortably in one of the motel kitchenettes. We never had issues with space. We managed to cook a breakfast every morning. We were supplied all the dishes and cooking...

For over 15 years,we've spent time at the Echo. The rooms are super clean and decorated nicely. Leslie and Paul and their staff are friendly and make us feel right at home. Along with being steps from the ocean, the Echo is within walking distance to restaurants and shops. We like it so much we stayed there 3 times this...

We spent a weekend in the early fall at the Echo Motel, Leslie was very friendly and helpful. The motel is not fancy but extremely clean and well kept. The microwave and fridge were great for breakfast, a stone's throw to the beach. Will be back for longer stay. great beds.

We are repeaters to Echo Cottages and as long as Paul & Leslie will rent to our family we will keep coming back. They offer so much to make our vacation fun and relaxing. Most other properties are not as clean and comfortable....you have to provide sheets, towels etc but at the Echo they provide everything including washer/dryer so we...

I have been to the Echo Motel with my friends and their twin daughters for the past 11 years and have had no complaints with the owners or housekeeping staff, they are wonderful people. The rooms are kept clean and have been updated and improved over the years. One year, when I returned from the Echo, I discovered I did...

The hotel was close to the beach which was a big plus. In addition the pool was nice and clean. On the cons side, the wifi was almost non existent. We kept getting kicked off. The rooms were dated. The hotel owner was never around. And the hotel missed some basic perks like ice machine and free morning coffee. Overall...

I wish I had known about the customer's concerns during his stay. A discussion about several of the issues raised might have led to greater satisfaction. Leslie, the owner, rarely leaves the premises and lives there with her husband throughout the year. There is a Check-Box WiFi System with one master and 3 mesh repeaters in place. Our coverage is...

Well how disappointing can one be after spending a week in a very unsecured hotel.

The complaints put forth in this review are inaccurate. The individual who posted this review was not a registered guest but one of a group of 11 people who visited a registered guest staying in our motel. This goup arrived in the morning and used the room throughout the day disturbing our registered guests. At one point, a member of...
