Recently stayed three nights at the Canaan Motel while attending a nearby event. There are very few choices for lodging in the area. As a frequent traveler I have stayed in numerous lodging choices costing from $500 a night to $50 a night (the Canaan is at the low end of this cost range), and I can honestly say I... More

We were desperate for a hotel. This was the week the fair started in Skowehagen and everything in town was overpriced. Most motels were running at about $110, which I find ridiculously expensive for a small town and motels that no form of luxury. We asked a number of places where we could stay for cheaper. Our favorite was the... More

We found this motel late in the evening on our trip through Maine. Our room was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Although located right at the Rt 2 it was surprisingly quiet. We enjoyed pool and spa after a full day in the car. And before continuing our trip we had some cups of coffee and a... More

We have stayed at this motel several times over the last 10 years or so. Our recent stay was just last week (week of August 6th). It's a very small motel with a friendly staff. It's quiet even though off of a main thoroughfare (Rt 2). The grounds are clean, the rooms are clean and very spacious with double sink.... More

Stop in Canaan the motel is right on Rt 2 and is a good place to stay at a very reasonable price. It is close to Skowhegan and Pittsfield. The new pool will be open soon. Enjoy your stay in the land of milk and honey!! You can even take a rine down Easy Street once you are in Canaan.

I have a young child and booked this hotel on the statement, on their website (which has since been changed) that they had an indoor pool. My husband, daughter and I went to check out the pool to be rudely and abrasively told that the pool was under "reconstruction" and not available for use. When I expressed my displessure, I... More

A nice little inexpensive motel run by wonderful people. I always stay here on my way through Maine to and from Nova Scotia. It is quiet and clean with an indoor pool and spa. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Also the gas station next door usually has the best prices for gas in Maine. Pet friendly for a... More

We had a family reunion in the area, so 28 family members and 2 pets stayed here at the Canaan motel. The owners and staff were very friendly and very accommadating. Rooms are very reasonable, very roomy and super clean. Would definately recommend to anyone to stay here and would stay here again in the future.

I've been staying at the Canaan Motel for approx. the last 6-7 years during deer hunting. Last year my pick up broke down on a paper company road! What to do?? I called the motel, and got Liz. She asked where I was located, and told me she'd call right back. She did, and lo and behold my helper was... More
