Where to stay /20-30 mins from the Airport

Myself and a friend are coming into maine for 3 days from this friday. We're booking a last minute hotel on hoteltonight.com, but portland seems insanely priced.

We're going to be driving around the weekend, so dont need to stay in town.

Any suggestions of towns to stay in that are like 20/30 mins drive from portland/the airport?

Somebody suggested Ogunquit but that might be a little too far to stay in (though great to visit)

Freeport has reasonably priced B and Bs and chain hotels. About 20 minutes north of Portland.

Millbrook Motel in South Portland is fine (America Best Value Inn) , or rooms are very inexpensive in Old Orchard Beach this time of year, and it's within 30 mins drive of Portland and has a miles long beach to enjoy. White Cap Village (small apartments...check their TA reviews) is only $70 per night.

Not much going on around OOB this time of year except for nice long beach walks....but if you're planning to drive to Portland one day and Ogunquit or Kennebunkport the other day, it will be perfect.

Freeport, Scarborough, South Portland all usually have good hotels that won't break the bank. Those are our go-to towns when we don't want to pay Portland prices.
