This room had a terrible smell. The bathroom came from the 50,60,70. Yup updated in decades. I would not step on shower floor with thick boots on, let alone bare feet. So bad we left after half hour & went to great hotel across the street. So bad paid for 2 hotels for one night. On the positive side. The... More

Good size room with 2 queen beds. Mini fridge and micro. Flat screen with lots of TV stations. My room was in RiverView section with view of River and Canada. Nice counter space in bath. I wish there was a comfortable chair/recliner to sit in rather then the boring, uncomfortable dining room chairs. And the hotel has poor sound insulation... More

Very clean, quiet, and, pet friendly! 1960's and 70's furniture and fixtures, that are all in good shape, and to the quaint atmosphere. The view of the river, with St. Stephens, Canada on the other side, is outstanding. Don't expect a doorman or concierge and you won't be disappointed. Nice budget priced place to stay with pets. We will be... More

I picked up some febreeze at Walmart it helped with smell. It's just old. Not dirty but old. Way to much money for this room. I'm used to a hairdryer and toiletries not a bar of soap. There's not much to pick from in Calais but I will definitely we think my choice next time!

First, the party above me begins at 10:45PM, then I try to call the front desk for another room, only to learn that the front desk is closed! No way to contact anyone. Called local police for a number...nada. What a long and sleepless night it was! NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER STAY AT THIS CARDBOARD DIVE!!

I was very nervous about what to expect in this motel but the options are pretty limited in Calais, Maine so this is where we stayed. I am happy to say I was pleasantly surprised! It was a little like stepping back in time booking into this motel. No credit card needed to reserve the room and you have to... More

I was too tired to continue on home so stopped here as it was conveniently located on Route 1. It is a hop, skip, and a jump from the Canadian border. The room was fairly large with 2 queen beds, a small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, big TV ( not a newer one ), 2 chairs, and a desk/table. The... More

This is not anything fancy, but it was clean and quiet. We have our dog with us so were in one of the older rooms and it was fine. Everything seamed to be well maintained. Has good hot water and water pressure.

We were quite disappointed in this motel. We stayed in the main building attached to the office, maybe the River View building out back is more up to date. When I realized our room had 2 doubles, I went back to ask if there was a queen or king option but was told their kings were all sold out -... More

The location in Calais is very good and you can take a pleasant walk along the foreshore into downtown Calais in around 10 minutes. We stayed in the Riverview building which has larger rooms and a good view over the river to Canada. Unfortunately the sound proofing between the rooms is very poor and our first night was greatly disturbed... More
