Two of us were in the area for work and this motel was chosen based on it ratings here on Tripadvisor. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The look like they have been recently renovated. The should have upgraded the TV and cable system. Older tube TVs and so much snow in the picture it was hard to watch.... More

Needed to spend one night in Houlton, and was told that Ivey's was a good place to stay. We were not disappointed. The rooms were spacious and the amenities were comfortable. The front desk staff was polite and very helpful. Along with friends, we enjoyed a nice evening night cap in the pub, which was a warm and friendly environment.... More

We recently stayed at Ivey's Motor Lodge and were quite pleased. The staff is super friendly and accomodating. It really appears to be the only reasonable hotel in town. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was better that what is usually offered at the hotel chains. Dave took charge of the morning meal. He was an absolute delight.... More

1) Responsive and friendly staff--Sharon, Dave, etc., at the front desk. These folks greet you at the end of a 100+ stretch of I-95, and they must greet an awful lot of flustered and even frightened first-time visitors to Northern Maine. They handle it all with aplomb. 2) If you're allergic to the chemical-intensive chain hotels--you know, that "je ne... More

And I have tried a few. The motel has been extensively renovated and rooms have a full kitchen in them, which is a little weird because the bed is right next to it with no partition but it is convenient. Staff is very attentive. The facility has a restaurant attached which I would not recommend unless you really don't feel... More

We are regular visitors to the Houlton area with many family and friends in the area. A wonderful area to enjoy the best sights, down home cooking, and the friendliest residents in America. Adding Ivey's has been a must visit every time we are anywhere near for over 50 years! Dave now adds a warm and personal touch to their... More

Dave is one of the newest members of our staff here at Ivey's and needless to say he does what we hope all our staff does. He is the team member that most people get to meet and greet and he does very well at it. We understand that the most important item is the quality of rest that you... More

First off, the location is perfect! 30 seconds off the highway and right over the border so it makes a great spot to stay while travelling from Nova Scotia. Dave at the front desk was fantastic. We arrived with no reservation but he got us a room quickly with 2 big beds. Lots of laughs while he was checking us... More

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and convenient. The staff is professional and friendly. The attached pub, O'Kelly's, offers delicious food at very good prices. Our one minor gripe is about the Wifi internet access, which was inconsistent and very slow. Still, we would gladly stay here again!

I'm glad you a good stay here at Ivey's. Unfortunately we are and have been trying to correct our internet problem for sometime. We were using a provider from out of our area and this has caused us a great deal of confussion and issues. Hopefully by the end of November we will have a new and better system in... More

Arrived at Ivey's with no problems as it is near 95. Check in was smooth and efficient and the cookies were delicious. The room was very clean as was the bath and everything functioned smoothly. There were plenty of plugs for the numerous electronic and medical devices I have. Wifi functioned well. Breakfast the first morning was overseen by Dave... More

My husband and I drove to Houlton to attend a funeral. We selected this hotel and I noticed it had a Jacuzzi Suite. The suite was in a new section of their building. The room was very clean and neat. Unfortunately, the cloth shower curtain could have used a wash, as it smelled mildew. When we tried to move the... More
