I rated this place "average" because I can see how some people would find this little motel adequate. Plus, I didn't feel right rating it "poor" or "terrible". For me, this is about the minimum accommodation I can imagine staying in. Any less and I would feel better off sleeping in my car. What was good was that it appeared... More

twilite, Owner at Twilite Motel, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear that the guest did not find his accommodation satisfactory. While décor is about personal taste we would like to comment on the ‘contract issue’. We are surprised that the guest that appears to be well traveled never came across the routine sign-in process into a motel/hotel. Any guest can exercise his right to just ‘walk... More

We stayed here in October because we had enjoyed our stay two years ago. We really like the motel because it is quiet, comfortable, and in a good location. The owners are very nice. The blueberry muffins are delicious.

The owners were lovely, and the room itself -- while a little unusual -- was very clean and cozy. Breakfast was simple but had a decent selection. Of course, pet friendly was a must for us, so that counts for a lot. Our only complaint was that the walls are rather thin, so we could hear a lot of banging... More

I have previously visited and reviewed this hotel a couple of years ago. To me, the gold question is "Would you stay there again"? In the case of the Twilite, the answer is a a resounding yes, and I did. Once again, very friendly and helpful people run it. They did remember me from last time, and gave me a... More

Value for price was very good. Our room was very clean, quaint and cozy for a motel. Excellent hot water for shower. I appreciated the night light in the bathroom, how often do you see that at a motel and I also thought the packaged essentials of sewing kit/Qtip/makeup remover was a nice touch. If you are a hiker/walker, you... More

We love this place. It is super convenient on Route 1, pet friendly with large grassy areas, and the rooms are always very clean. The owner is really nice and the breakfast is good. It's a cute place. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for two nights. The motel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the rooms are clean and a good value. The breakfast is continental with really good muffins. The owner is so very pleasant. He goes out of his way to take care of his guests. The rooms need renovating. I have a bad back and... More

We stayed as a foursome with two rooms. The hotel staff were helpful, friendly. The kitchen, rooms and outside area were clean. The rates were good. The rooms were well light and the AC worked great. We stayed in August and have recommended to another group who stayed in September. We were all pleased. Hi! Chuck.
