Without a close look, the two plugins can be easily confused with each other due to the name.

WP Maintenance Mode has much nicer looking themes, a higher rating and a lot bigger number of downloads. But when I turned on the maintenance mode, people logged in as editors can still access the admin area of the site; and I could not find a way for me to only allow administrators to access the admin area. This can be a problem because I don’t want editors to access the admin area and be able to add, modify or delete content, while I am preparing to move the site to another location.

Maintenance Mode, on the other hand, does not look as sexy, but it allowed me to easily deny editors access to the admin area.

So keep that in mind when you are selecting a maintenance mode plugin for your site.
