This place is disgusting, stinks, and nobody could pay me to stay here! I have stayed in some questionable hotels before, but this place tops them all. The shower floor bubbled up, I couldn't even stand straight in there. The sheets had body hair on them, and the electrical outlet didn't even have a cover. My child could have gotten... More

When we arrived, we didn't know what to expect and we had a good laught! The decoration is really retro but the bed was just fine. We are on the side of the highway but the noise level was ok. The ac was working just find. We needed a place to sleep only and it was ok. The lady at... More

We first found this place when another motel gave our room away, and this is our 3rd year coming here every time we come up to Maine! The beds are very comfy, it is always clean & never a problem with the A/C or heat. Both work fine. Small fridge & microwave come in handy. The highway is right there,... More

Sign in room said no refunds, immediately called expedia and... More

Based on the name of the place, and the two very negative reviews, we did not have high hopes. Our room matched our reservation. We found a good sized, clean room, with a king sized bed. The management provided photos here on tripadvisor are accurate to what we experienced. The bedspread/curtains were too loud and Hawaiian-shirt inspired for my taste,... More

We reserved a room over the phone, non smoking, two beds, ....upon arrival, smoking room, one bed. We declined the room and found another room elsewhere. Don't waste your time here.

If I could give this place lower than a "Terrible" rating I would have. This was by far the worst motel/hotel experience I have and hopefully will ever have. I write this to make sure they don't do this to anyone ever again: After booking my hotel through booking.com on 7/28/2011, and getting a confirmation email, we left for our... More
