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

This motel was recently remodeled, very clean and spacious rooms have Microwave, fridge, flat screen TV and great wi-fi. The location isn't particularly aesthetic, but is still convenient for exploring the area. Definitely recommend!

We had to come to the area for a family function. We booked online. The outside of the hotel doesn't do the inside justice. Very nice rooms which were super clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms had everything you need, microwave, flat screen tv, refrigerator, ironing board and iron. The convenience of parking right outside your... More

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
