Don't let the outside of this place fool you because, as other reviewers noted, once you step into your room you will find nothing but comfort, cleanliness and all of the amenities that you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Just refurbished, pleasant staff and even a road out back to go for a long walk .You can park... More

Stayed here last July for 2 nights. From the outside it looks simple and ordinary but looks can be deceiving. First, the owner is a lovely woman who welcomes you with open arms. The rooms are quite small square footage-wise but very efficient and immaculately clean. Nice selections for breakfast with bread etc wrapped individually and the only edible peanut... More

The Christmas tree in the lobby was decorated with flannel ornaments--the first sign that this would be a cozy place. The bed and linens were heavenly, and the heated floor in the bathroom warded off any hint of chill. Breakfast was basic, and appreciated.

The room and service exceeded all of our expectations! This place is a "must get back to" spot! The bed was perhaps the best of any that we have slept in. The bathroom was beautifully done. The front desk service was very friendly and the breakfast was delicious! Fresh waffles with blueberry syrup! We knew we were in downeast Maine.

The Margaretta was welcoming, immaculate and nicely (newly!) appointed. Our room was tiny which can be an issue if you plan to spend time in your room; especially since Machias closes up at 9 pm. We still had a great stay. Breakfast pretty standard but the coffee was great. And they were okay with me hanging out in the breakfast... More

Small drive-up style motel with very clean rooms. They're quite small, but comfortable and nicely decorated. My only complaint is the (lack of) quality of bathroom amenities. No conditioner, just some cheap Zest soap and shampoo. I'd happily have paid $5 more each night to avoid my 9:30 PM run to Rite Aid for appropriate shower supplies. I didn't have... More

Second time I've stayed at The Margaretta Inn. As with my last stay, everything was outstanding, from the gracious greeting to checkout. I will return and look forward to my next stay(s)! Thank you for everything.

This place is amazing! You think you are driving in to a 1 star strip motel and you open the door and find a 4 star hotel room. A great experience and a great breakfast to boot. If you are in Machias you have to stay here.
