Second stay at this hotel during a trip to the US. The couple running the place are very nice and the hotel is very well kept. The rooms are nothing fancy but the price is right, and you can park right outside your room. Comes with a continental breakfast, which is very basic. Easy driving distance to downtown Ellsworth.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay at the Twilite Motel in Ellsworth, ME. Exceptionally clean and very comfortable and affordable. Expedia told me there were non smoking and smoking rooms but they were wrong, the rooms were all non smoking. The owners are very nice people.

Very clean, very affordable. The rooms don't look very new, but you're not coming to this part of the world to stay indoors, anyways! The rooms all have porches, which are nice to sit out on in the evening. The continental breakfast is a very light offering with both indoor and outdoor seating. There is a little gift shop where...

The Trip Advisor reviews are accurate. This is an old-style motel that is well maintained. Very functional but not fancy. The owner is very friendly. Willing and knowledgeable about the Maine attractions. He marked up a map for us to take with us. He was like a mini travel agent, in a matter of minutes he gave us some agenda... More

I only stayed here one night while visiting friends, but the reviews are accurate. This is an old-style motel that is meticulously maintained by the owners. Some physical features of the room were somewhat improvised, from the plastic folding bathroom door to various little signs and instructions (including one not to use the old thermostat and directing you to where...

No idea when this motel was built, but it has been maintained and slightly updated over time. Every Room has everything you need to be comfortable at a functional level, nothing fancy. What really makes the place is the owner! His sense of humor is quick, wit sharp and has opinions that at least match with ours. He provides ideas,... More

This motel was built in the 50's and is still a wonderful stay. The roms are very well maintained and extremely clean. The couple that runs the motel are very pleasant and accomodating. The breakfast is simple, but tasty and the coffee is good. We stayed tree nights and enjoyedit a lot.

I live in southern Maine but travel regularly to Washington and Hancock county on business. I have been staying at the Twilite Motel in Ellsworth for a number of years and have always enjoyed my stay. The hosts (Chuck and Ariela) are incredibly accomodating and some of the nicest people you will ever meet. It's a family run business that... More

We stopped here after a day of exploring and this quaint little motel fit in perfectly with our day. It is located on Hwy 1 on the hill above Ellsworth. We had a queen size room in the back portion of the motel. We worried that road noise might be an issue but we didn't have any trouble sleeping because... More
