After staying at several other motels in the area I can safely say this is the best. The decor is definitely out of date but everything else makes up for that. It is clean and housekeeping really goes the extra mile. Not only is there is a kitchenette with a microwave refrigerator stove top and coffee maker there is also... More

My family and I stayed at Prays for a rest from a drive from Machias and Farmington Maine. When I drove up I was not expecting to see trucks with the tailgate down and bar b ques on the back and cooking, first impression was not that good. After checking in the room was not that bad for the price.... More

My husband is in Newport on a work assignment. He tried out Lovely's...which isn't so lovely. Considering there are no choices of places to stay, Pray's will have to do!! The owner and housekeeping lady are very nice. The rooms are dated/updated...lol New ceilings and light fixtures but still old wood panel walls and old furniture. The rooms are clean... More

Overall decent place to lay your head. Biggest problem is if someone farts in the room next to you it sounds like an bomb. The walls are paper thin!!

We've stayed here twice, once in May and once in October. Clean, good location, and great value. We like that the bedroom is split off from the main area so if someone is up late or early they can do so without waking the others up. It's better than the other spot we have stayed in here in Newport. Plus... More

I stayed at Pray's Motel for two nights in May and liked it so much I returned for two more nights in June with my dog. Pray's is a small 10 room motel located in back of a gas/service station and I agree with the other TripAdvisor members that this place is a great value. For about $50/night you get... More

My family and I stayed at Pray's Motel because of an unexpected situation. I was very surprised at how homey and clean this place was. It may not be the most modern motel, but we found our stay to be nice, quiet, and comfortable and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the room lay-out and the amenities were that of home.... More

Traveling through to New Hampshire stopped for the night after reading about the quality of accomodations around Bangor decided to try Pray's Motel. Outside looks are deceiving, this motel is clean, comfortable and inexpensive.
