We always tend to stop here for the night when coming back from Bangor. Not the best place I've ever been to. The beds are small but have lots of pillows. I did pull down the comforter to check the sheets like I always do no matter where I stay, they had a yellow stain on them. Hubby went to... More

First we were quoted 1 price and then it went up 20 dollars. OK so 65 is not bad if the room is nice, but it was not nice. It had mold on the top of shower, rust on the shower handle mold on the floor by the toilet. Tiles in the room look like they were going to fall... More

On a road trip to Canada, we overnighted at the Calais Motor Inn, and it was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made. You are better off staying elsewhere or just crossing the border to find a place in Canada. This Inn was unsafe and noisy. After we arrived, we went down to the "fully licensed restaurant" which...

The hallways smelled of old smoke and were dark and not very clean, The room was straight from the 60S needs to be updated. The restaurant ws good and service was very friendly as there were only a couple of us in the place, good prices good food. The pool was out of service at the time of my visit.... More

We are new owners of this property and have been able to do some much needed renovations! However, in the winter months our renovations are at a slower pace. Our main building is entirely smoke free. Despite signs on every door & a strict no smoking policy we are constantly enforcing these policies. We apologize for this and hopefully during... More

If you need a basic room. Nice staff, room has what you need - fridge, microwave, free wifi. Free coffee in the AM. Tip: there's a Dunkin Donuts up the street. It's a small town. Seemed like a lot of people on my floor but it was pretty quiet. Off the street a bit so vehicle noise was low. And... More

Checked in late one May evening with another couple. They had two rooms...gave the larger room to my brother and his wife and we took the smaller room in the main building. Their room was spacious, but old and tired linens greeted them. We had the same issues in our small room, but for us, our window overlooked the AC... More

There is a pool advertised on the webpage. Too bad its closed. We booked here with a child to go swimming. 80 a night plus tax totally not worth it drive across the border or go to bangor. The rooms are old and outdated no elevator so be prepared to drag your luggage upstairs. Air conditioner is loud and annoying.... More
