based on reviews here, we chose this place for an inexpensive room in Belfast, ME. There are not a lot of options in Belfast,and the others were ridiculously priced - and BTW baasically directly across the street from the Yankee Clipper, so NOT great locations or worth the inflated prices. Anyway, the positives: a clean room, updated with laminated wood... More

We recently spent two nights at the Yankee Clipper and were very pleased with the room. It was fresh and clean and very nicely decorated. We don't usually stay in motels but the reviews were excellent so we gave it a try and we were not disappointed. Belfast is a lovely town and the lobster pound at the end of... More

Found this gem here on trip advisor, we travel quite frequently on short weekend get aways & love staying at small motels & Inns, we travel by motorcycle often and were greeted by well paved driveway, rags to wipe bikes down from the morning dew and boards for the kickstands. The room was spotless, with a small frig & microwave,... More

Generally, we don't tend to stay in highway motels while we are on the road, but in this part of Maine, there aren't a whole lot of options. Having done my homework here on TripAdvisor, I selected the Yankee Clipper for a place to stop on our way home on our motorcycle trip. WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE!. The place has... More

This hotel was not much to look at but was clean and updated and good value price. Didn't really have much of a view of the harbor as was advertised but It was a short walk or easy drive to the downtown and the very beautiful harbor area. Good shopping and restaurants nearby.

Recently remodeled, we really couldn't be happier with our recent stay at the YC. The room was clean and very well equipped with microwave, fridge, iron, etc. Housekeeping was on time & thorough. Our neighbors next door had an infant and toddler, but the walls must be well insulated, because we couldn't hear a peep from them, and the street... More

Cant say enough good about Yankee Clipper. Traveled to Maine less than two weeks ago, hubby and I stayed at a luxury hotel for three nights then at Yankee Clipper for three nights. The so called luxury hotel left alot to be desired. At Yankee Clipper loved the wooden floors, spacious, clean, renovated room and bath, housekeeping services wonderful and... More

This was our first ever stay in Belfast and we were pleasantly surprised by the Yankee Clipper Motel. The exterior is clean and inviting, but nowhere near as fabulous as the interior! First, we arrived as part of a medium-sized group very late at night after a long drive, and the owners were very accommodating with our schedule. The hotel... More

This place is NOT for the budget-minded, however much money the owners have spent on rescuing a perfectly average 1960s(?) building. I paid $139 with AAA discount, for a glorified motel room. Nicely refurbished indeed, but sticky pleather chairs, trendy sterile atmosphere, cold wooden floors, non-adjustable shower head, no shears to maintain privacy while allowing light into the room, entrances...

We found this great motel after a long day's drive. New, clean and well furnished. Pleasant staff. Close to amenities. Very reasonably priced. Though close to the main road, noise was not a concern at all.
