My husband and I traveled to Lewiston for a family visit. We viewed our options and tried the Sleepy Time based on your reviewers. When we drove up to this little motel it was like a blast from the past but also a terrific delight! The owner, Lynn, was very friendly (offered to loan me her snow shoes.) The room... More

We stayed just one night and it was great. The owners are very accommodating and the room was very clean and well supplied. The cabinet in the dining area was stocked with plates, glasses, bowls utensils and salt and pepper. Microwave and small fridge completed the mini kitchen. Nice quality TV, altho navigating the TV menu was a little iffy.... More

I have previously stayed at a chain motel in Auburn, and although it was pleasant, and the folks friendly, it was a long walk from the car to my room, plus a flight of stairs (no elevator). I decided to try the Sleepy Time Motel, because I was traveling with a 3 year old this time, and the ease of... More

Sleepy Time is serious about cleanliness, quiet, and courtesy. Major snow storm and was plowed out early. Proprietors live on site and are friendly and helpful while respecting privacy. Excellent in every way. I'll stay there any time I'm in the area.

Stayed here for 10 days while on business trip. The couple that owns/runs motel are perfect hosts. Very friendly but never pushy or bothersome. The cleanliness was second to none, squeaky clean. Very quiet location, with numerous TV stations, fridge, micro, table even paper plates, utensils and glasses. City center only about 10 minutes away. Would always stay here when... More

While on route to visit the Oxford Casino we were finding it difficult to find a place to stay, when we came upon this motel. At first we thought it a little pricey, but were pleasantly surprised with all the additional amenities. It had dishes, a microwave and refrigerator and even long stem wine glasses. Since we had leftovers with... More

The owner of Sleepy Time was so friendly and welcoming! He showed us our room. It was clean, cozy, and had a rocker which was so comfortable! The room had a refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, coffee cups and other things like napkins, paper plates, cups, etc., and it felt like home! When I looked at the book kept in... More

My mom booked this room as we were visiting my grandfather at a senior living facility in the area. We pulled up after dark and I was a little concerned due to first impressions....which were incredibly wrong! The owner was so friendly and showed us to our room which was simply adorable.

We traveled to Maine for a College Tour of Colby, Bates and Bowdoin. I was drawn to the Sleepy Time Motel on Tripadvisor because of the outstanding reviews from their customers. It is a quaint 6 unit motel that will take you back in time. You can see that Lynn and Mark have pride in ownership because the rooms and... More
