Stayed here a couple of times as a one night option, not a very good motel, but with the limited number of places in the area it was good for the one night and cheap price we needed. However, had to stay in the area again this year and found out that the motel was destroyed in a fire in... More

I made a reservation within 48 hours of needing a place to stay. This hotel made me give them my credit card number to hold the reservation. Within 24 hours of the time of my reserved date. I canceled my reservation. The front office staff stated that I did not give them a 48 hour notice and that my credit... More

I would give this place a negative 3 star rating. I agree with the other review saying to sleep in the car. Moss and soft spots on the balcony, narrow stairs thatake 90 degree turns, random microwaves outside a few rooms, phone in drawer ( did not work). Horrible place!!!

Myself, my cousin & a friend pulled in after a long day on the road driving from Nova Scotia. It was late evening & we were tired. We didn't want to drive any more. We considered another place in downtown Rumford but quickly dismissed it. From the outside it didn't look inviting, looked more like a crack den. First thing... More

We were 3 tired bikers stayed here. Riding our motorcycles all day long and we were tired. Nothing else around in this area. The wives were not with us so it was ok. When we pulled up on our motorcycle in the evening we were the first people there. She gave us the largest room at the back of the... More

The woman who took my reservation butchered my name, after 3 attempts at spelling it. My order confirmation listed my state twice, two different spellings, no town. Kindly offered a coffeemaker in our room, but then had no filters for it. Although I drink my coffee black, the poor woman next to me couldn't find a creamer that hadn't soured.... More

Even with the bathroom door closed the whole unit reeked. The hot water faucet was broken. Took several flushes for toilet to work at all. Did not even dare look at shower. Staff was not helpful at all when I realized on the way home I had left my diamond wedding band, the only place it could be was that... More

This place is the WORST motel I have ever been to in my life. STAY AWAY! I understand old and worn. A motel does not need to be new to be good. It DOES need to be CLEAN. I should have ran when the heat did not work. I should have ran when the manager put a defective portable heater... More

I stopped at this motel on a very rainy evening when further travel became to difficult. The person at the desk was friendly enough but that was the only highlight of the stay. The room I was assigned was around the rear of the building where there was vary poor lighting. The room was difficult to locate as there was... More

The descriptions of those who rated this place as terrible sum it up pretty well. But those giving it a one-star rating strongly overrated it. This is the most dilapidated excuse for a motel I have ever seen, and I have travelled all over the world. The only redeeming fact is that you can be sure that there are no... More
