From the outside this little hotel looks like an old motel- a long strip of rooms with nothing to recommend it. What a mistake! Everything about this hotel is great. The beds are comfortable, everything is newly renovated. Great shower, flat screen TV, free WI-Fi. Can't ask for more-- except a little more room! The rooms are small but you... More

Hadn't stayed in Machias for a while, and my impression was that most places in town were a bit run down. We made a reservation at the Margaretta Inn based on recent reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews were right - this is one of the nicest places to stay Downeast. The rooms are recently remodeled and are beautiful, although... More

what an amazing place, the owner was very friendly and accommodating. The room was absolutely perfect. All remodeled, heated floors in the bathrooms, keurig coffee makers in each room, refrigerators, and microwaves as well. There is also a nice breakfast available in the morning. I would stay there again. I would recommend to all who plan on staying anywhere in... More

I recently traveled to northern Maine for a Puffin tour. We found the Margaretta Inn, in Machias, Maine, to be an excellent place to stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and our stay was just great, in a very picturesque part of the Maine coast that is "off the beaten track."

Three of us---all very picky---shared a double room for one night on our way to Campobello Island a few days ago. We were prepared to make the best of whatever the hotel might be like, but it turned out to be fantastic! The room was seriously spotless, the beds and even the bedding uber comfortable, and the owner absolutely lovely.... More

My boys are 8 years old and we were attending a Little League tournament in Machias (which is almost 2 hours from our home) so I decided to get a room and stay the night to avoid extra travel time. What a wonderful surprise to arrive at the Margaretta and be so welcomed (not always the case for a single... More

Dear TJC908, I really did do a LOL "Laugh out Loud" this morning when I read your review, thank you so much! I am so happy that you and the boys enjoyed your stay with us. When you have a child's seal of approval how can you possibly go wrong! I am glad that the boys took advantage of playing... More

The Margaretta Inn looks like an old-fashioned roadside motel from 60 years ago, not a charming New England inn, but don't be fooled. This a freshly renovated, clean, well-run facility that provided us a very pleasant stay. It's not a fancy place, but obviously someone cares. The beds are good, the TV and Internet service are excellent, the bathrooms have... More

It's obvious the inn was just remodeled and it looked great. The rooms are very comfortable, especially the bed. The heated floor in the bathroom is a great touch. The breakfast area is small, so go early.

Dear Beth A, Thank you so much for the review! I am happy you found your room comfortable, especially the beds! While renovating last year we had no idea that the continental breakfast would be so popular. So with that being said, another renovation will take place over this summer to increase the space for the breakfast area. We are... More

The Margaretta Inn was a very pleasant surprise. Situated very close to the center of town, it was a great place to stay. Sherry and her staff were extremely helpful and hospitable. The accommodations were great...first class. If you're in this neck of the woods I highly recommend.
