Thank you so much for your review! We were very busy when the pipeline was being installed in the area. The pipe liners were all a wonderfully respectful group and we enjoyed you all being here! Thank you again for staying with us and hope you all return when back in this area! More

We stayed here with two other couples (versus pitching a tent in a muddy field overnight to attend a friend's large cookout/party) and it was a gem. Easy to find. Clean, comfortable, and having the kitchenette was a nice added extra.

I stayed at there for 3 months while working in the area. I could not say enough good things about how friendly and helpful everyone was. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchenette was essential so that I could cook my own food. I was there during the winter and the snow in parking lot was removed quickly. Highly recommend.

I was visiting Waterville, but all the motels in town were full. So I had to cast a wider net. Lucky for me, because it brought me to Axell's Scandinavian Inn. This is actually two separate motels, Axell's and the Fairway Inn, a mile or so west. both are strip motels on big horseshoe drive. I stayed at the Fairway.... More

Just four miles out of Augusta isa little gem of a place. Nice beds, floor space and a kitchenette for under 100. They even had extra pillows already on the bed. It's pet friendly, too. By Scandanavian, I think they mean IKEA. Love the blackout curtains.

I really hate to write a negative review, but there are some changes that Axells Scandinavian Inn could make that would have made my stay there much more pleasant. I would stay there again and encourage others to also stay there as long as you have read this, and other reviews, and understand just what your are getting. To start... More

My boyfriend booked this property as all the hotels closer to Rockport were booked for Lobster Festival. What a pleasant surprise. After a 10 hour drive, it was welcoming to be greeted warmly by the reception lady which we later learned was the owner. The property was well maintained. The room was clean and had a microwave and fridge. They... More

Whenever I am in the Augusta area, this is my first choice to stay.I will admit, I was nervous about staying at a roadside motel like this. However, after seeing my room, I was hooked! I usually stay over at the Fairway Motor Lodge (there other motel that's just down the road). Unlike other motels, each room is unique. If... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous! ... more   less
