Stayed here for one night as our room at the farm was not available yet. Girl at the desk was very helpful. Room was exactly what we expected but the view of the river was exceptional. Saw a seal and an eagle several times. Sat out in the deck chairs with coffee. Convienient to have the nice restaurant Helen's next... More

If I had understood how a choice this was, I would have booked us here for our five night stay in Machias. As it was, we stayed here for two nights because we couldn't stay at our first choice more than three days due to availability at that three room inn. We stayed in room 24, ground level, 2nd building.... More

We had booked a tour to Machias Seal Island through Bold Coast Adventures, which is just 20 minutes away, and decided to stay in Machias. When we opened the front door of our rather dull-looking (though clean) hotel, we saw at the back of the room a large sliding door opening right out on the Machias River. There's a lovely... More

Dad and I stayed at this place a few years back and it was excellent. (We didn't have internet but attributed it to the fact that the lightening storm had knocked out the electricity.) Saturday night's stay began when Dad used the bathroom and the toilet wouldn't flush. Now, that can happen anywhere at the worst possible moment but when... More

Stayed here 2 years ago and it was OK back then. If having a comfy bed is important to you, I suggest staying somewhere else. Place was clean and quiet and close to Dunkin Donuts :-). If my aunt didn't live just a few minutes away, I probably would have looked for something else.

If you're looking for a Hyatt, Hilton, etc. accommodation, this isn't it. It's clean, neat, well maintained. The decor is reasonable, though very dated. However, didn't I just say clean? I was worried at first as they still offer smoking rooms, that my non-smoking room (#38, one bedroom kitchenette) would smell of smoke from other rooms, and it didn't. I... More

We are visiting UMM and saw good reviews of this lodging . The facility is clean but very outdated. I heard noise in the bathroom over the tv, that sounded like someone was in our room upon further inspection of the bathroom I saw the ceiling tiles move. Startled , I called the desk to ask if maintenance was working... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our river front property. I had the maintenance department throughly inspect the space about the bathroom tiles in the unit in which you stayed. They found nothing. There were no rodents of any kind or evidence that there had ever been anything there. You stayed with us on a... More

Saved in the off season by this lovely place, when every other place was closed for season or closed because it was after 9pm. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, all the basic amenities. I also really enjoyed the restaurant out front before getting on the road the next morning.

We stayed here a year ago in a room on the second floor; this time we asked for a first floor room (there is no elevator) with 2 queens. It was a nice room, clean, good size, nice bathroom. This hotel is within feet of the Machias River and all rooms have sliders on that side. There is a nicely... More

For the past several years we have stayed at Machias Motor Inn on our way home from Canada. We like the comfortable bed, the good sized and well maintained room, the well-lit bathroom with the long counter to put our stuff on, the river view behind our room, and the convenience of parking our car right outside our room. There... More
