Normally we would overnight in Bangor but this was a good option having left our home late in the day. The room was basic but clean and the bed comfortable. I found the pillows to be very hard and uncomfortable but then again I usually am very particular about the pillow. Good free Wi-Fi worked well. Decent hot breakfast included... More

This motel was an excellent value, with clean, tidy, and reasonably modern rooms. All staff we encountered were friendly. Dave was especially friendly and pleasant. If our travels take us to Holton, ME again we will certainly stay at Ivey's again.

The motel is old, but it is very clean, and kept nice. The light switches, signs in the room, and the beds were old, but it really didn't matter. It was clean, warm, dry, and comfortable. I really enjoyed the bed, it was nice and soft. The extra light in the bathroom was nice. They had HBO. Free hot breakfast.... More

My job requires me to be in Houlton and Ivey's has made it easier to be away from home. Have stayed here several times and have a great experience each time. Breakfast is served each morning and Dave makes you feel really at home. His enthusiasm this early in the morning is always a great way to start the day.... More

We have family in Houlton, and when we visit we always stay at Ivey's. A smile and first name salutation greeted us upon our arrival last time. We arrived in a snow storm and the front desk was friendly and welcoming after a long, cold and weary drive. With the snow falling outside, and the friendly staff and clean comfortable... More

My three generation group (grandma, mom, and daughter) stayed at Iveys in the depths of the frigid winter to see family and go skiing. Ivey's is a clean and comfortable place, made even more charming by Dave, the morning breakfast manager. Even though we scooted down at the last minute for breakfast, Dave made sure we had fresh and plenty... More

Rooms were modern and clean, the check-in staff very helpful and friendly. We stayed 2 nights and unfortunately, did not get a good nights sleep. Heater was noisy and clicked on and off every 10 minutes while set at 60 degrees room was hot. The refrigerator was also not working correctly as it hummed constantly. At check-out we felt our...

Clean modern rooms with beds similar to those you would find in a Hampton Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay here again when I visit Houlton.
