I wish I could give 0 points. We arrived late at night and were so tired. Checkin was closed, found our key in the mailbox. First impression: huge room, poorly and old interior with an old smokey smell. Without a close alternate there we decided to stay for the night. My kids and my husband slept very fast. But not...

About the only thing positive was the view of the water out the window. The room is outdated with a small TV that was a long way from the bed so you could hardly see it. The big thing was it was COLD! There was an old portable room heater which you plug in. I moved it as close to... More

The reviews were misleading to say the least! Very poor for a high price. Just old and rundown. No coffee in room, but cups and such. Carpet was dirty and chairs were old. Had a nice dinner at the Happy Crab down the street.

Well, we arrived and found no other accommodation so went for this motel as it seemed to have a lovely view. It turned out that that was the only positive. We were overcharged but that was sorted eventually. The décor was miserable and dated and the worst thing was the smell of stale cigarette smoke (I have been a smoker... More

The location of this motel was wonderful and the room was large. Unfortunately that is where all the positives end. We were in the area in March when all the other motels, hotels, and campgrounds were closed. The room was heated by a edenpure heater which made the air so dry I had trouble breathing. Maybe that is why the... More

Nice location, big rooms, microwave sink and fridge in each room. but very dated and old beds furnature bedding etc. Trash under the bed just not clean or kept up. Stayed as it was the only hotel open this week. Rather expensive too.

We stayed here for a night in October 2014. We were attracted by the superb waterfront location with vews across to Deer Island and the harbour. The view was the best thing about the property. It was miserably equiped. Our room was a 'suite', with a fridge, sink and microwave. There was no coffee maker, one plate, three forks ,... More

Many of the guests seemed to be heavy smokers and the rooms reeked of smoke. In September, the motel catered mostly to construction workers (that may have explained the smoke) who carried on loud conversations and joking from one floor to the next. Management paid little attention to detail; there were missing light bulbs in the room and no soap... More

We made reservations here months ahead as there were few places to stay in Eastport. I expected a minimal motel room. However, our room was very big with two queen beds, table, two big chairs, a desk, tv cabinet with drawers and a kitchenette with refrigerator & microwave. Also, a large, clean bathroom. To top it all off there were... More

A friend and I were touring the Eastport area and were looking for a place to spend the night. There are not many places to stay, so we decided to try the Motel East. We went to the office and it was closed. We had difficulty with our cell phones, so an employee at one of the stores on the... More
