Comfortable and clean. Great value. Bed was very comfortable and mini fridge and microwave were very convenient. Motel was a little drive from the beach, but the area is quiet and affordable which is a nice trade off.

Sanford inn is a Classical motel with acceptable room. Size of room is good. Wifi is available. Continental breakfast is included (basic breakfast and coffee is horrible) but Beach is only a 30' drive It is a good compromise between location and price

We selected this Inn on line, as it was about half way from our trip start in upstate NY to Mid-Coast, Maine. Reserved for going and coming back. First time, room was OK....nothing exceptional, except did have a fridge. TV didn't work and had to get housekeeper to find someone to make it work. On coming back trip, we were... More

If you need a place to sleep and shower this is the place for the money. Looked at a few places in the area and they were way over priced. Its clean and in a great location, close to ocean and plenty of places to eat. I would recommend it to my friends and would stay here again.

This is a basic motel with no frills. The desk clerk seemed amused that my friend and I (both males) were sharing a queen-size bed together. We didn't care. We're good friends and often travel that way. Everything was actually quite nice. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, so we could each have our own side. After... More

I had to crash overnight in Sanford, ME after an event that ran late into the evening. I just needed a clean place to lay my post-event head until the morning, to then drive back home. This place is not fancy, but functional and clean. The owner was cordial. There was cable TV and good-smelling sheets in the bed. Only... More

Room was very clean and bed very comfortable(except for the pillow for me-wife thought it was fine). Check in was friendly and easy. Thought some say rooms are dated I say Classic Maine as they have been updated not worn out and our room was very clean
