I admit it...I was nervous. It wasn't a known "chain" motel/hotel & located in a rural area. HIGHLY recommend!!! Rooms extremely clean, staff friendly & super helpful, breakfast delicious. You will be more than delighted, and we very much look forward to staying there again!

If ever in Houlton, Maine, I would recommend staying at Ivey's Motor Lodge, a smoke free motel with spacious rooms and very comfortable beds for a great night's sleep. In addition, the staff provided excellent customer service. We were first greeted by Ashley at Front Desk. She was most friendly and so very helpful. In the morning, we were greeted... More

If you find yourself in Houlton for the night your options for lodging are limited. We tried Ivey’s Motor Lodge and were pleased with our choice. All staff were friendly and helpful. The room we got in the new section was spacious, quiet and clean. The included breakfast was more extensive than a lot of other places we've stayed and... More

When I complained, they said they had no spares. Our room only had one bath towel and hand towel. The breakfast was several grades below... More

In planning a 23 day road trip from Miami to Maine and the Canadian Maritime Provinces we needed to line up pet friendly hotels in advance as we travel with Neemo the wonder dog. On the trip back from Cape Breton Island we planned to cross the border at Woodstock/Houlton. In checking for pet friendly accommodation for Houlton on line,... More

Great location to enjoy the huge snow fall this year with my skidoo. Clean room and a good breakfast. What more do you need? Staff were friendly and helpful with directions about snowmobile trails in the area. Breakfast was good for a motel, not fine dining but they offered a good selection of all the usual stuff. Could offer a... More

We stayed for one night in late September. The room was large, impeccably clean, and very comfortable. There was a sink in the bedroom with a small counter, as well as in the bathroom which was a nice surprise. Even though there are few motel choices in Houlton, this would be a good choice under any circumstances. The bar was... More
