This young proprietor its working diligently to make an older establishment be a comfortable stop. Our room [motel-like] had a comfortable king bed, was very clean and was recently remodeled. Glenn is very accommodating and is doing the right things to make the entire spot an enjoyable experience. He plans to work on the outside soon.

I booked the deluxe family room because it seemed like a perfect fit for our needs. We were traveling with our infant and other family members and wanted to be able to put our baby to nap and sleep in her room while still being able to make noise and use a bathroom in our own room (parents who have...

This is a basic, comfortable, no-frills motel. We were in one of the rooms in the 4-unit annex, so I don't know what rooms in the house look like. Ours was comfortable with a good mattress; it looked like it had been redecorated recently. A small fridge and a microwave were unexpected pluses. The young woman who checked us in... More

Just a couple of comments so future travelers won't be surprised. Although office hours are posted and we arrived well before closing time, the door was locked and there was no one there. There was a note on the door so we called the number and Crystal came over in about 5 minutes to check us in, at which time... More

Hi Carol, Thank you for choosing Whitetail! I really hope you enjoyed your time in Maine. I'd like to apologize for missing the mark on your expectations. Glenn will be looking into the shower mat situation and we have just very recently modified our breakfast policy and will be modifying the site/signage as such. Very sorry for the confusion here....

They were able to accommodate us on very short notice. The room was wonderful, price was great, and the owner was so friendly and helpful. The locals recommended it. We will be passing through again come autumn and will definitely stay again.

I was fortunate enough to stay at this Inn last weekend. Another place to stay fell through so I called them that night. They were able to accommodate me last minute, and were quite friendly, telling me about the history of the property. The room itself was well-maintained and quite comfortable and not far from the center of Lincoln. I'd... More

We were thrilled to find this little gem after our car broke down on the way to Boston and we missed our flights. Thankfully the owner was so accommodating allowing us to check in early and check out late while the car was being worked on. He also offered to provide transportation to us to get groceries or anything we... More

We spent one night here after a weekend of winter camping and were very surprised! The room was comfortable, the bed nicer than many I have had in 5 star hotels. The Wi-Fi extra fast, in room coffee and a location close to nice restaurants. The traffic noise was minimal. Morning Keurig coffee in the lobby lounge made for a... More

I was very pleased with this place. Glenn, the owner has done a very nice job transforming this motel. Our room had 2 queen beds, flat screen TV, refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was small but functional. Continental breakfast in the morning was a pleasant surprise. If you are staying in LIncoln, this is a great option.
