WOW! We were pleasantly surprised with Motel East. Being pretty much the only motel in town, $120 for a LARGE 2-queen suite complete with small fridge, microwave and sink we were very happy. The view from the balcony was like a postcard. Ok, the room isn't the Hilton, but I don't stay at the Hilton unless it is a comp... More

This motel has location, location, location! The rooms are average, but were clean. All of the rooms have an ocean view. We had the end room at the ground level and enjoyed the balcony a great deal, esp. at sunrise and sunset. It's a 30 second walk to the center of town, where you can get fresh bakery goods from...

Well, the choices for accommodations in Eastport are quite slim and we read varying accounts about the Motel East on Tripadvisor so we decided to give it a try. We were staying one night only, so how bad could it be? It started at check-in when we asked about the availability of ice. The only ice machine was in the... More

We were upstairs on the far left which was a great location. And kept us as far as possible from the office...and the smoke. The owners/employees seem to smoke constantly. The rooms are reasonably clean...but everything is old, worn and stained. It is quiet....though we didn't have neighbors. We just interacted once, at check-in, with the owners. They were reasonably... More

Stayed here because it was the only place in town we were told. Our friends switched rooms 3 times before they could find a room they would stay in! The carpet in our room was filthy and the beds squeaked, the screen was half off the door. It is real close to town and the view is great

The one positive thing I can say is that the room had a good view. Rugs dirty, toilet bowl not clean, microwave needs cleaning. I have to agree with the other negative reviews. There is no way I would stay there again.

Stayed in their ocean view room,steps going down to these rooms are big,uneven rock steps of different heights,most unsafe thing I've ever saw. The room was like a FUN house,the bathroom floor was 3 inches out of level. I guess Maine doesn't have motel inspections for safety.

Made a reservation for two nights for my granddaughter and I. Receptionist on the phone was very pleasant. Arrived about 4PM. Was skeptical when I entered the lobby, quite smokey and cluttered. The view was beautiful. Went to room 13. It was very dirty. Picked up, no clutter but dirty. Arms of chair were very soiled. Smelled smokey, the screen... More

We loved staying at Motel East!!! The hotel is in a perfect location and has a beautiful view! Every room has a balcony view of the ocean. (We stayed on the second floor). The hotel is right in town so all the restaurants, shops and piers are within walking distance. You can sit on your balcony and watch boats go... More
