This is a great roadside motel. It appears to be new, not sure if this is the case. It is immaculate. It is right on route 1 so the road is quite busy. We were not aware of the easy walk to town, might be a good excuse to go back. Would definitely stay here again if we are in... More

All one floor parking right at your door which is wonderful. We loved the room very nice simple clean aesthetic and in Maine of all places! Very small fridge but the kitchen area was in a cute little nook. No breakfast and the road is pretty busy outside. Walk into town is easy with the footbridge over the "Passy" close... More

I needed a hotel close to Belfast. There's limits options so I decided to give Yankee Clipper Motel a try. The motel rooms are clean, wood floors so no musty dirty smell. The king size bed was super comfy. Flat screen TV and remote. Bathroom was clean with soap and shampoo and conditioner. Mini fridge, microwave and closet too. Great... More

Immaculate room and bath with comfortable beds and bedding. The rooms appear to have been entirely renovated very recently. Young's Lobster Pound a short walk across the street (great place...thanks to the hotel owners for the tip)! While the outer appearance is a typical motor lodge (be it a very nice one), the rooms were far nicer than the higher... More

We stayed at the hotel in July. It was even better then the reviews. Clean, modern and 1 walking block from a working seafood business that sold meals at the location with a great outside dock to sit on with tables. (also indoor seating if weather is bad). The other great thing is even through the hotel is on the... More

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
