This place is inexpensive, but with the extra amenities of a hotel much more expensive. The room was clean, and beds comfortable. Breakfast was waffle fare with hard boiled eggs, and all that I require for a good breakfast. Loved it, and WILL stay again!

We arrived late in the evening to our hotel. My friend had reserved two rooms through Priceline.com. We went into our room and the bathroom floor was filthy. (see photo attached). I told my husband I could not stay there. I went to the front desk and luckily there was another room available. I really did not want to stay... More

Have stayed here multiple times during trips through New England in the summer. We don't spend much time in hotels other than sleeping so we are not that picky.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The location is very convenient. The price was too good to pass up when we wanted someplace inexpensive to go to in the middle of winter.

I wasn't expecting much for the room price but the rooms were clean and the staff was nice. The breakfast is pretty average. The location is very convenient to 295 and all the shops Freeport is known for.

This is a motel priced at ~$80 per night, so don't expect a luxury property. That said, however, it is much better than any other motel I've visited. The rooms are clean, nothing is broken, nothing is stained, and there are no funny smells. In addition, the rooms had microwaves, small refrigerators, and coffee makers. The rooms were comfortable, clean,... More

My room was simple and clean - no problem with that. The staff was very friendly. However, even in my non-smoking room, I could smell the smoke. It really made my stay not as pleasant. Don't think I'll stay here again.

We stopped in Freeport on our way to Bar Harbor with no reservations for the night. We saw the Econo Lodge -- and had picked up a brochure with a coupon for 10% off so figured this would work.
