I am a frequent business traveler who prefers to stay at bigger named hotels. However, sometimes my travels take me to area where that isn't possible. I was hesitant at first booking at the Margaretta Inn - not really sure what to expect when I got there. Well let me just say I was amazed. The owner was at the... More

I had a lovely overnight stay at the Margaretta Inn while exploring the Machias area for relocation purposes. The room was cozy, comfy, very clean, and well-appointed with fine attention to details that one might expect to find in a hotel. It was apparent to me that room was a reflection of the dedication, pride, and vision of the Inn's... More

I was going to stay in Bangor at one of the chain hotels and then drive to Machias the next day. As a business traveler I rarely take a risk when it comes to accommodations. I'm sure glad I did with the Margaretta. This place is great. Clean, comfy, wifi full cable etc.. A true diamond in the rough.

The Margaretta Inn is an old style motor hotel on the east end of Main Street in Machias Maine. It doesn't look like much on the outside but it is totally renovated and very well done. Rooms are small so no room for the whole family but a great stop over if you are on route 1 in Northern Maine.... More

I had such a wonderful experience. The owner and employees were very nice and so helpful. The room was very comfortable and cute. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to stay a few nights in Machias. I checked in around 10:30 at night and it was a very quick and easy process.

The people who work here are very nice and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The room was small but lovely, and I loved the warm bathroom floor on my feet. The keurig in the room is a wonderful amenity!

It was a blessing that my company booked me three nights here on my first trip to coastal Maine. The Inn was so cozy and warm. Very attentive staff, nice breakfast, lovely and quiet room with subdued lighting and comfortable big bed. Best of all was the courtesy the guests were shown with plowing the parking area in what turned... More

This was a completely smooth process from booking online, checking in, out as well as any needs met with fabulous customer service. Accommodations are very clean, plush, modern, stylish and spacious. Even the quality of the towels was impressive. The heated bathroom floor was an unexpected bonus that was great on a sub zero day I visited. The bedding is... More

The Margaretta Inn is the perfect spot to stay while in the Down East area. Completely redone, my room was decorated to create a calm, warm environment with great amenities. The bed was a dream. I must admit my favorite part was the radiant heating in the bathroom floor. After coming in during a snowstorm, it felt wonderful to take... More
