When you take a trip to a place like York, Maine, you’ll have the option of staying at a chain motel if you’d like. But if you really want to experience everything that a place has to offer, you’re much better off booking a stay at a locally owned motel.
Here are several advantages of going with a locally owned motel over a motel that’s part of a chain:
Locally owned motels will give you a more local feel
There is so much to see and do in a city like York, Maine. From kicking back and relaxing on the Short Sands Beach to walking through all the shops in York Beach, you’ll be able to do a little bit of everything during your visit. And staying at a locally owned motel will enhance this experience since you’ll be right in the middle of the action. A hotel like Sands by the Sea is conveniently located right near the Short Sands Beach, just steps from amazing dining options, shops, a gorgeous harbor, and more. You’ll really feel like a local when you stay at Sands by the Sea when you’re in town.
Locally owned motels will provide you with more personalized customer service
Whether you stay at a chain motel in York, Maine or a chain motel in York, Pennsylvania, you can expect to get the same level of standard customer service. But when you go with a locally owned motel like Sands by the Sea instead, you’ll get customer service that goes above and beyond what you would normally expect. You’ll be able to ask for restaurant recommendations, learn about some of the things you have to see when you’re in town, and interact with the motel managers on a regular basis at a locally owned motel. You won’t usually have these same opportunities at a chain.
Locally owned motels will offer you and your family better accommodations
If you’ve been in one chain motel, you’ve been in them all! They usually have the same exact room setups regardless of location. But a locally owned motel like Sands by the Sea understands the need for different room configurations. It’s why we offer 60 rooms and vacation rentals that come in many shapes and sizes. Whether you’re a couple planning an anniversary getaway or a large family looking for a place to host a reunion, we can offer better accommodations than any chain motel would.
There are also many other benefits that come along with staying at Sands by the Sea
You can get to the beach within just a minute or two from any of our rooms. You can also lounge by our heated outdoor pool, which will have food and drink service courtesy of the York Beach Bucket beginning in 2019. And if you want to go out and explore, we’re not far from a number of attractions, including a zoo, an amusement park, an arcade, a bowling alley, a mini-golf course, and so much more.
