The desk clerk was friendly, the rate was great, but the beds were pretty uncomfortable. I don't think we'll be coming back, but only because I hate hard mattresses. The room was modern and clean, just not comfortable!

Wow, this place is amazing. The rooms are awesome. You step into a room and boom....you're impressed. I understand that this motel was completely gutted and remodeled in 2012. The beds are actually quite nice. When I first learned of the Yankee Clipper, I decided to take a look at it on Google Maps. The image was taken in 2009,... More

November 7-8, 2014. This place was great!! Newly renovated 1950's style motel was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The spacious room included free wi-fi, microwave, mini - fridge and coffee maker. Everyone on the staff was professional, courteous and welcoming. Very convenient to restaurants and downtown Belfast. Reasonably priced and also offered AAA discount. I would definitely stay here again,... More

My wife was concerned when we arrived and saw that it was a motel. She thought differently the next morning. She was very impressed. It was a wonderful stay. If you are travelling and looking for a nice clean room with a great bed and shower with coffee service, the Yankee is the place for you. The owner was very... More

As described on TripAdvisor. Motel was very clean and room had updated features - especially the hardwood floor (no nasty carpet). Staff were friendly. Bed comfortable. Priced right. I'd stay here again. Excellent rating is compared to other similar roadside non-chain motels.

We were planning on staying here, one night, but spent two nights, instead. The rooms were very nice, the staff was very friendly & helpful w/ information. This is a great spot to stay & do a day trip to Acadia National park, & Bar Harbor. We would definitely stay here again.

Room appeared to be recently renovated - very nice, clean. Fairly basic but nice fridge and microwave. Short drive to restaurants and other sites. We stayed here because they allowed dogs but now, I'd plan on staying there anyway. Nice people - nice place.

Lives up to their website. It is neat, clean, and friendly. Convenient to beautiful downtown Belfast and is affordable. Nothing really fancy, but you get the standard amenities which are all your need for a pleasant stay. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

We visit Belfast once a year or so and usually only stay one night while visiting family. We don't need a GLAMOROUS spot, but we want to be comfortable at a reasonable price ---- thank you, Yankee Clipper!!! From the outside it doesn't look glorius but it was perfect for us. The room was spacious and well appointed (think professional... More
