My family, now just my husband and myself, has been staying at the motel for years. His family has lived and had property in the Ellsworth area for over 100 years, so we visit regularly. We are amazed at how well the property has been maintained over the years. The rooms are large and clean and everything we need is... More

Something must have changed here since prior reviews. Manager (?) Was friendly and professional. Both of our rooms were very nice, clean and well maintained. The pool and spa area is great. Fridge and microwave in the room. WIFI even in the room on the end. Breakfast was juice, coffee, cereal, oatmeal, toast, jam and the obligatory sweet roll. Manager's... More

Our family had a large reunion and many of us stayed there, some were in the local area and the rest of us out of state. Bill was very accommodating and his wife as well. We stayed in the honeymoon suite as we had a daughter and grand-baby with us. The room was clean and had a jacuzzi suite, and... More

Sadly, you don't have to try very hard if the only other place to stay is a 40 minute drive. One 40 watt bulb to illuminate the ENTIRE ROOM! No other light. They need to bring in steam cleaning machine and clean all the tile floors--dirt in the corners. Vacuuming done just in the traffic areas. Curtain needs to be... More

We, too, have stayed at this hotel thru several owners as we're visiting relatives in town. It's adequate for us because we're young, but my mother-in-law has mobility issues. We were there (in two rooms, one handicapped accessible) for two days around New Year's. One night we were the only guests. I guess because they weren't expecting many arrivals, the... More

Room was comfortable, Climate control was good. Nice big flat screen TV. Has Refrigerator and microwave, Cleanliness was marginal but there were no bad odors, such as stale cigarette smoke, often found in non-smoking rooms. The bed was very comfortable and firm and we were able to sleep well. Had problems with electronic key locks. Thanksgiving there was no maid... More

We have stayed at this same motel for many years. It has gone from a good Best Western to a run-down motel. Condition: there were beard shavings around the sink in our clean room. Mold in the shower, cigarette burns in the blanket of the non-smoking room, and weeds all around. I made a reservation for 2 rooms one night.... More

So sad that this motel has gone downhill since changing ownership. Wouldn't you think they'd at least mow the grass and pull some weeds for a big three-day weekend? The drapes in our room were hung with all but about four rings, one lamp was missing a switch making it useless, the wall mirror was on the floor, the bathtub... More
