Vacationing in Maine shouldn’t mean you need to break the bank. Of course, the sunset views and ocean beach walks are priceless, but you don’t have to pay $600 per night for your waterfront perch. You may expect that booking a cheap hotel room means you’re staying at a flea bag motel. Not so!

Caratunk Maine Hotel

Maine has many hotels and resorts that offer competitive prices while providing everything you desire on a Maine vacation including direct access to the beach from your inn, outdoor pool area, fitness rooms, Wifi, or continental breakfasts to name a few.

Finding an affordable hotel also means looking into location. For example, the Southern Maine Coast is quite a popular summer destination, which means prices can increase during the peak summer months, but a visit in June or late August can be very affordable with beautiful beach weather.

Wells is typically a more affordable vacation destination than its neighboring towns, Ogunquit and Kennebunkport since these towns offer more high-end lodging. These seaside towns provide the same amenities you’re looking for on your Maine vacation, including 2.5 miles of beautiful beaches, sand, sun and surf. This isn’t to say that you won’t find affordable hotels in these upscale towns, there are simply slimmer pickings and higher demand.

During Maine’s “off season” hotels and resorts reduce their rates offering a very inexpensive stay you normally wouldn’t find during the summer. However, many of the hotels and resorts listed in the Affordable Hotels Directory offer specials, all inclusive and vacation packages even during peak summer months.

One thing to keep in mind when researching hotels in Maine, or anywhere for that matter, is that booking directly with the lodging property is always more affordable than booking through a booking engine like Hotels.com since these systems charge commission.

If you truly wish to find a great deal for a vacation in Maine, you may consider following these hotels on social media or sign up for eNewsletters for exclusive special deals. Even during the fall, winter and spring season, Maine is an attractive location for a ski vacation or a weekend getaway on the coast. Year-round, visitors can always find great deals without reducing the quality of their vacation. Pay less, and still get the most out of your stay in one of Maine’s affordable hotels.
