We have been able to negotiate some discounts for our cyclists and volunteers at a handful of hotels/motels in the Old Orchard Beach vicinity but this is a very small town and a very busy weekend in OOB. Most hotels/motels are already offering “off-season” rates.
Rooms sell out quickly so please be sure to make your arrangements early!
The Alouette has supported this Ride since the very beginning and has become part of our New England Parkinson’s Ride family. In addition to The Aloutte itself, Fred and Ann Kennedy own several other motels along the beach and have offered significant discounts to our riders and volunteers. They have basic motel rooms at $94.95, as well as a few suites and a couple of cottages available. In addition to offering discounted rates the Kennedys have always made a very generous donation to the ride. Please call The Aloutte directly at 1-800-565-4151 to obtain the discounted rates. Just be sure to identify yourself as a participant of the New England Parkinson’s Ride. You may also visit their website to obtain a brochure, see room options, etc.
The Hampton Inn in Saco also offers a group rate to the New England Parkinson’s Ride and will hold a block of rooms until 8/8/18. In addition to the reduced room rate of $199.00 for a room with two Queen Beds or a King Bed with pull-out sofa, breakfast is included (they’ll even pack ready to go bags upon request for early riders) and $5.00 of every reservation is donated back to the ride. Please book directly through this link or by calling 207-282-7222 and mentioning the ride.
If you prefer to be closer to the action of portland, the Fireside Inn & Suites is located about 20 minutes from Old Orchard Beach, right off of I-95 at Exit 48 in Portland. They are holding a block of 20 rooms with 2 double beds for the New England Parkinson’s Ride until 8/7/17. The normal room rate is $179.05 per night but they have generously discounted to $109.95, which includes a continental breakfast! Please call to make your reservation. 207-774-5601.
The lovely Old Orchard Beach Inn is right up the street from the pier. They don’t have a lot of rooms and are very popular with our cyclists and volunteers so you’ll want to book early. This year the Old Orchard Beach Inn has offered a 15% discount if you mention the Ride when booking. Please contact them directly at:firstname.lastname@example.org or Toll Free: 1-877-700-6624
Beachwood Motel is a small motel with only 49 rooms, very typical of the Old Orchard Beach area. We have had cyclists stay and be quite happy. They have off season rates available but require a 2 or 3 night stay and book up very quickly. Phone: 207-934-2291.
Waves Oceanfront Resort has rooms available but is unable to hold a block for us this year or provide a discount. We list it here only because we had some cyclists use them last year. If you are interested in finding out the rate and different room styles we have please contact them at (207)934-4949 or www.wavesoceanfront.com.
