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 The rooms are old and outdated no elevator so be prepared to drag your luggage upstairs.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

Let's face it. Calais is a place that the modern decorating world has left behind. You won't find ANY accommodations that even come close to a holiday in express. This place is the best of the bunch. They try hard to meet your needs and have a large selection of clean, safe room. Amenities vary by room...as expected with a... More

After a LONG day on road we checked into another hotel. Horrible!!!!!! We found the Calais Motor Inn. Front end staff was very friendly & helpful. Room was very clean and quiet. Could use a mint on the pillow. Lol

What I can say that's good is the interior access and heated pool. The rates were terribly high for a Wednesday night in a remote town with no major attractions in the area ($69/night). There was no complimentary breakfast -- only coffee and tea in styrofoam cups. The room keys were old school -- no key cards. The hallways were... More

Not much to pick from in Calais Maine. Beds are comfortable and clean. Rooms are ample in size, not a place that I would like to stay in for longer than 1 night. There is an indoor pool in the hotel but it has no water in it!!!! well that says it all.

We stayed at this hotel for my daughters college graduation. The bathroom wall was covered in mold and the shower curtain had mold as well. We ate at the pub and grill and the service and good was good.

I had to be in Calais for a couple of days for business. Front desk staff went out of their way to accomodate me during a very busy week at the motel. My room was a bit dated, but clean and quiet. Ate dinner in the pub downstairs. The food and the atmosphere were great. I will definately stay again... More
