We were greeted with smiling, bubbly staff member. Our king bed room was very comfy, equipped with a mini fridge, table and chairs. Older motel that has been newly renovated. There was lots of counter space to get ready in the morning. Everything was clean and inviting. Hot continental breakfast was available and a heated pool too!!

Clean hotel and the room was clean with a comfy bed. The breakfast was good and they were willing to customize it (real cracked scrambled eggs instead of premade omelettes containing plastic processed cheese)! The breakfast attendant was constantly seeing what needed to be done. Only minus was the 1970's decor and feel of the room. Still, we would stay... More

We would likely not return to this establishment. It looked nice from the outside, but had a very tired look on the inside. We had a kitchenette unit. The appliances, cupboards, and floors looked like they came out of a mobile home of the 70s. The carpet in the main bedroom part smelled really badly. We even tried spraying hair... More

This cool retro style motel has been updated inside, even with nice wood floors (if you choose that room category). Our room was extremely clean and the bedding felt very freshly washed. We were downstairs but did not hear the noise from the above floor. The front desk staff were very friendly, including an off duty employee who stepped into... More

The motel has comfortable beds (king room), free wifi, and improved hot and cold breakfast selections and renovated breakfast area, and the heated outdoor pool was really nice. We required a minor repair to our room which was dealt with immediately by the staff and repaired very quickly by maintenance.

Excellent value and comfortable stay prior to our early morning boarding onto the Nova Star. Staff accommodated our room location request which was arranged prior to our arrival. Room appeared to be recently renovated and spotless. Provided an early breakfast with both hot and cold selections. Staff was constantly refilling and cleaning area. Exceeded expectations for motel price level.

Clean room of a reasonable size. Quiet rooms. Weak breakfast offering usual quickie stuff. Still a good stopover for the ferry. Walking distance to the center of town, we went to "The Rudders" for dinner (recommended). There's one other hotel of higher stars (Rodd) but frankly it didn't look like it deserved the rating ...

From the drive up, we expected a motel, but our room in 236 was clean, wood floors, and rather comfy. We were there for the Old Timers Baseball Championships and travelled as a family. While only there for four days, we had luggage for the week and each person, including our four year old had a bag. The room was... More

The staff of the hotel was fabulous which more than made up for the average room, and the higher cost of the room (true to the tourist attraction of the ferry to Maine). Would stay there again if I had to travel to Yarmouth because the staff went over and above to help us out.
