The lodging in Rumford has a poor reputation and so our experience at the Blue Iris was a pleasant surprise. The owner, at the front desk, was welcoming and informative. Our room was very clean and well kept. The view of the frozen Androscogen River was beautiful. Despite our having a corner room, and the place being filled, it was... More

Three of us stayed for 2 nights(Nov.2014). The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The two double beds were comfortable.The room wasn't big,but certainly big enough.The owner was very pleasant and friendly. There is a very nice restaurant just down the street. If there was a drawback,it was not having a little refrigerator. Not such a big deal in November,but... More

On the way from Acadia Island to Montreal, we stopped at this motel. It was a surprise! A warm welcome by the owner, very clean and spacious room and our room was just completely refurbished. From the back of the rooms you have a nice view on some mountains and a river. If you are ever passing by and are... More

During my last vacation, I stayed twice at the Blue Iris, Once on the way to Canada and again on my return. Jean, one of the owners, was most efficient during the telephone reservation and very friendly when checking in. We had great conversations about grandkids and kids' books during both times. My first room, think it was #8, was... More

Spending the night in the area for the first time, I figured I'd try the Blue Iris Inn, and what a great decision it was. I was greeted by Jean DeSalle, one of the owners, who was incredibly efficient and kind in registering me. I inquired about places to eat, and she gave me two great recommendations. Looking at the...

Recently spent a night here on my way into Rangeley. The rooms are very cute and clean. The women at the desk was very helpful and even called our room with an afterthought to give us another breakfast option in the morning as we had an early start. I would definitely stay here again. This place is the best road... More

I had this hotel on my list after reading reviews - booked at the last minute since we didn't know how far we'd travel that day. Easy to find - very friendly and helpful owners. Older motel, but very clean. We love staying at family owned motels like this. Price was very reasonable and had everything we needed for an... More

I am pretty fussy about where I stay, but I must say this was a very pleasant surprise . Owner was wonderful. Rooms clean.. Only thing missing was a coffee maker or a microwave..sitting on the back deck was very relaxing..

Yes, this is a cute "old-style" motel, but no shampoo? That is a little bit too bare-bones, even for me! No frig, no microwave, no wi-fi. Oh, not even a coffee maker. But, it is clean. I think I will go elsewhere next time. I have gone by it for years and wanted to try it, so, I did. I'm... More
