This hotel was just fine: clean, comfortable, and pleasant. We did face some problems with the shower (we weren't able to get hot water for a little while), but the bed was great and there is a fridge and a TV in the room. No complaints about WiFi either. The hotel is about a 30 minute drive from Bar Harbor... More

Great price on an older motor inn. Friendly staff close to the highway. No frills as we just wanted a place to stop and go, Thanks. I would stay there again if only sleeping and leaving. I would say, in todays terms, you get more than you pay for. Offered "walk-in" discounts. Greeted me by my name.

My family and I needed a cheap place to sleep while we spent time with family in the Ellsworth area. For a holiday weekend, the price was right. There are no fancy extras, just fairly decent rooms for a decent price. Our rooms were clean, and the bed linens fresh. The in-room coffee was gross, but what can you expect?... More
