This small classic 50's motel was perfect for our one night stay, as we had to walk to the pier early in the morning for a fishing trip. It was about a 3 minute walk all downhill. The owner was very friendly, the room was clean, and it was a quiet street. There was no air conditioning, only a floor... More

This is a very basic motel, located just right, only a 3 minute walk to the center of town. Our room hasn't been updated since the Eisenhower administration, by the look of it. On a plus side, it has WiFi, on the minus side it does not have air conditioning. Budget-minded travelers will find this place satisfying.

We loved staying at mid town motel!!! Drove in on our Harley's and will be booking here again. The owner was super nice and accommodating. Very basic amenities, but still worth it :-) rooms were clean and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and it is a very short walk to town.

Great hospitality, very clean rooms. Very basic amenities - no shampoo or hair dryer provided. The location was great - close to town but quiet. Our host recommended Eastwind for a sailboat tour, which we very much enjoyed. We would stay here again.

I loved this place! It is right from the '50s, when it was built. Knotty pine, wood furniture, 50s fabrics. Everything was clean and fresh. Wifi, small tv, the "air conditioner" was a pedestal oscillating fan. Being near the harbor, the evenings are cool so don't let that worry you. It is an easy walk into town and the prices... More

Mid-Town Motel bills itself as a "true 1950's classic," and lives up to its promise. We arrived mid-week, mid-summer-season, and were able to obtain a room without difficulty. The décor was in line with the 1950's theme -- simple, but not Spartan. Like the mid-Maine values it represents, if you needed it, it was there -- clean; free wi-fi; a... More

From the moment we entered the motel and met the owner we knew this would be a great night. He was warm and kind, we knew we could come to him for any issue or advice. Our room was wonderful. Extremely clean and well kept. It is dated, and I loved it. It was like being at camp. The bathrooms... More

This is definitely a "no frills" kind of place--no air conditioner (an oscillating fan instead, which I actually prefer), no dorm fridge for leftovers, no coffee maker in the room or continental breakfast, tiny tv (we're not tv people anyway, didn't matter to us), tiny shower... That is the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five. There... More

This is a delightful little motel with 1950s style with easy access to downtown Boothbay Harbor. By easy, we are talking three short blocks. The exterior of the motel is painted sky blue and inviting. the rooms (we rented two, one for us and one for our teenagers) are very very clean. Yes, they may be tiny but they are... More

Friendly owner, great location close to downtown, small but clean rooms. If you want to experience what motels were like before Holiday Inn, stay here! We were quite comfortable, and appreciated the small town vibe and friendliness of the owner and his international staff.
