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.

Made reservations over the phone and they remembered me from a previous trip. Put us in the room we were in last time and ensured our guests were in an adjoining room. Everyone was most pleasant and accommodating. Would stay again.

We have stayed there a few times in the last couple of years, we love it there. Dave was excellent assisting us to get our 11 month old son set up for breakfast! The rooms are always clean, have never heard a noise, always had a great sleep and the location is perfect! Clean, comfortable and the food is excellent!

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

Thank you for your recent review of Ivey's. I'm Happy to know that we were able to meet your guest room experience. Please know that this is the only room we have that currently has a kitchenette in it. Your experience in O'kellys does concern me and I will look into what transpired that night. We do offer salads and... More
