This is a definite cut above the expected Rt 1 motel, and the 1950s-looking sign out front is deceptive. Our second floor room was upscale with a seriously comfortable bed. Squeaky clean, and decorated tastefully. Bathroom plenty big. A bargain for intown Camden. The excellent breakfast was continental, with fruit, homemade breads and muffins and juice. The owner is a... More

We love to exceed expectations! And we're so glad you enjoyed your room decor and the comfy bed (you got one of our pillow-top mattresses). We're very lucky in our team of housekeepers, whose high standards are responsible for your room's squeaky clean-ness. Many guests remark on what a bargain we are and we're glad you feel the same. We'll... More

Great location, perfect service, impeccable rooms, at a perfect price, what more could one want in order to ensure that their visit to Camden, Maine is perfect? Not a darn thing, except perhaps the Towne Motels' wonderful morning repasts: scrumptious homemade breakfast treats (my favorite, a Pear crumble that they whipped up using pears from the tree right on the...

Very clean and pleasant. Short walk to the center of Camden, to do some shopping, visit the beautiful harbor and many delightful restaurants. The view from the back of "The Smiling Cow" and the Camden Deli was wonderful. The homemade breakfast was delicious. The Hostesses were very helpful and pleasant. Would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for taking the time to write your five star review! We're honored. Our guests love parking the car (especially after a long drive) in our lot and walking to Camden's shops, restaurant, and harbor, where they can have lunch atop a waterfall! We're so glad you enjoyed our breakfast, and we love helping guests plan their excursions. Hope... More

If you're looking for luxury, this is not the place for you, but if you want a pleasant clean small room with all the basics, welcoming owners, yummy (but light) continental breakfast, perfect location and good rates, this is it. It's a 1950s style motel (first floor built in 1955, upper floor added in 1988) attached to a wonderful old... More

Thank you so much for your detailed and generous review! We admired your Harley and your adventurous spirit, but we didn't know you are a foodie on a Harley--so we're doubly thrilled you loved our breakfast goodies! We're very lucky in our location, easily walkable to downtown, and lucky in our dedicated housekeepers who keep our rooms sparkly clean. So... More

If you are just looking for basic, not luxury, this is the motel for you. It is clean. The furnishings and bedding are no thrills. The location is good. Just a short walk to the center of town. The innkeepers were friendly and resourceful. We were passing through Camden for 1 night and didn't want to spend a lot on... More

No thrills? What a shame. We're glad you appreciated our location, service, and very clean rooms. And we're glad we could save you money. But it's unfair to compare us to the "high end" properties you prefer. Here at Towne Motel we don't go in for frills and pretense, and we don't pretend to be other than who we are:... More

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay--and thank you for promoting my mystery novel! We really enjoyed our breakfast talks with you, especially about writing. And it's always great to have guests who love our baked goodies. We look forward to reading your short stories and we'll be sure to make chocolate-chocolate chip muffins next time you come! More

We stayed at the Towne Motel just two nights prior to a lovely cruise on a windjammer. The hotel is quite plain on the outside, comprised mostly of a strip of rooms (two floors) and has the appearance of a "Motel 6" facility. The rooms are very clean but generally quite small and the other negative is that you are... More

It was our first time to Camden and we enoyed it immensely. We read earlier reviews of this motel, were lucky enough to book for a Sunday evening on very short notice, and were not disappointed. Check-in and checkout were both handled very efficiently. We arrived before lunch and could not move into our room immediately due to cleaning, so... More

Thank you so much for your kind words! We're thrilled that we met and even exceeded your expectations! Sometimes guests arrive early and we will do an early-check in if their room is ready. When that's not the case, we're happy to fill you in on lunch and shopping options in the village. We're so glad you enjoyed our clean... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this motel, chosen sight unseen for an overnight stay on our trip to Maine. This is an older style motel and charmingly redone. It is close enough to walk to downtown Camden, altho it was rainy the night we were there so we chose to drive. Clean, comfortable, quiet room - due to the weather... More

We're so glad you discovered us! Here at Towne Motel we have a nice mix of returning guests (some of whom have been coming for many years), guests who find us via internet research, and happy-go-lucky travelers who think our place looks nice and pull in to see if we have a room. Retro charm is what we're all about!... More

Walkable to downtown. This motor court was perfect for our trip. Seems as if it has been totally refurbished and refitted with updated furnishings. It was clean comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. They helped accommodate us during a busy weekend with last minute logistics. We would definitely stay again. Bed was supercomfortable.

Thank you! We and the previous owners have indeed done some updates, and we plan on continuing with some re-decorating. We're always happy to help our guests with plans and logistics, and we're so glad we were able to figure some things out for you.
