We selected the Yankee Clipper after researching accommodations in Belfast. The Clipper won out because it was outside town but still close enough to walk into the centre via the footbridge snd Harbour walk. The facilities were of the highest quality and I have no hesitation in giving it a score of 5. Thanks.

This motel is located right on the coastal highway toward Belfast and Camden. It has been recently renovated and everything is clean and new. There is no breakfast on site, but lots of lovely restaurants within a very short distance. Rooms are well equipped and little or no noise from the highway. I love the benches outside the rooms, a...

We loved this little motel. It is just outside of town and right in the highway. The room had obviously been recently updated and was very clean. Desk clerk/manager was very helpful when we asked for recommendations in regard to dining. Belfast is a lovely little town and this motel fits.

Folks, this hotel is the second highest rated in Belfast. ME. It is not number one because of the really classy, high priced Belfast Bay Inn that should be highly rated at number 1. But I want a clean, quiet, safe, comfortable, reasonably priced place to sleep, not an expensive boutique hotel. Yankee Clipper is rated above all the rest... More

Location is on busy highway. It's outside of downtown. The view from the room is just barely okay. So why did I give it a 5? The room is so well decorated, every day it's cleaned & fresh, location to all the things you'll want to see is perfect, it's within walking distance to Young's Lobster town, so close to... More

This is a 50's style hotel that was remodeled a couple of years ago. Basic exterior but the rooms are updated. It's a clean as a whistle. Rooms are nice size, beds comfortable, and wifi is great. Also, just a short walk or drive (2 min.) from Young's Lobster Pound.

Great price-The earlier you book the better the bargain. Great location-a nice walk to downtown on the footbridge over the river, and a skip away from a gas station/convenience store, and Clean! We were impressed with the choice to go with laminate instead of carpet in the room.

This roadside motel is so well renovated, down to the beautiful black and white print/photograph of an old clipper ship. Everything is immaculate and well proportioned. My husband and I still love the practical motel layout where you can back up to the door and unload straight into the room, but to have every feature of the room look tasteful... More

While you think "old fashioned drive up motel" when you turn into the parking lot, you say, "WOW - this is perfect!" when you walk into your room! The newly renovated rooms are spacious and spa-like. The king-size bed was comfortable, the wifi and flat-screen TV were excellent, and the small kitchen area (microwave, fridge, storage area) was perfect for... More
