Nice river views, very clean and comfortable motel. The owner was very nice and accommodating. We were lucky enough to arrive during a fireworks display from the local Indian tribe. I would stay here again on the way north through Maine.

Have stayed here twice while visiting family. Affordable, clean, friendly, quiet and convenient. Don't judge this book by its cover. Excellent place to stay and have as a base to day trip travel around Bangor, Acadia, UMaine. Kitchen area well stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, etc. so eating in as a true option. Great showers!

I happened upon this motel purely by chance online, and I can't wait to go back! I was looking for a budget-friendly place to stay while visiting my son at UMaine and decided that this would be an ideal place, especially because I wanted to be able to cook while I was on vacation.

I almost don't want to let you in on this motel. Rooms around Orono are hard to come by during big weekends at the University of Maine. We were very pleased with the convenience of a motel ten minutes from the campus, most reasonable rate, gracious inn-keepers who work very hard, and the room itself. The two story motel is... More

We stayed here in July '14 at the start of a vacation up around the Gaspe Peninsula. We arrived late, but our reservation was in order and we even got a free upgrade to a big suite. We had a great view of the Penobscot River out the back windows. There was plenty of room, including a small, well-appointed kitchenette... More

I stayed here with my Mom and her husband in July of 2013 while in Maine for a family reunion. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and the 2 bedroom unit offered a full kitchen, dining table and living room area, as well as two small bedrooms and full bath. Everything was clean and in working order. The motel... More

Jayne, the proprietor, was exceedingly kind and welcoming upon our arrival. We had transported our motorcycles from Ohio in a van, and road into Canada and around Nova Scotia. Jayne allowed us to leave the van for the two weeks we were away and our rooms were very comfortable. She even mailed my water bottle to me after I had... More

The reason we chose to stay at this motel was due to the two bedroom suites with cooking facilities (two full bedrooms, living room, eat in kitchen, full bath and deck). Milford Motel panned out to be over-and-above satisfactory. Generally, I am very picky about accomodations, and was delighted by the cleanliness, great service, and convenience of the location (close... More
