We called to get the price of the motel and they said it was 55/night and when we got there we were charged 75. Some of the drawers look as though they have mold in them, it was a very small room, no HD TV's, water in the shower wasn't hot, just a small space heater and the refrigerator was... More

The rooms were clean, the price was right. It had wifi. Stayed here on a recent trip to Old Orchard Beach. Was an 8 minute drive. Close to flea markets. Family run, they do try hard and I have no complaints.

The rooms are small and dark - one window in front mostly taken up by A/C and everything is loud -- the A/C, the toilet, the traffic on Route 1. (bring earplugs) But more importantly, it's very clean and the owners were friendly. Request for more towels quickly met. Also like fact there is continental breakfast. For high season close...

Stayed here for an extended stay as I was working in the area. My toilet leaked for the entire time and mildewed, housekeeping never came. TERRIBLY RUDE OWNERS! Stay at any other local motel but here! Well I would avoid the Downeaster down the street ad well, But

We needed a place to stay overnight en-route to Seneca Falls from St-John New Brunswick, booked late so limited choice on a budget. This motel had everything we needed; close to our route, convenient parking outside the room, and even though it's out of town there are good restaurants, fast food outlets and fuel station close by. The accommodation is... More

I made a reservation for this motel. When I checked in and saw and smelled my room I felt instant regret and some trepidation. The motel is old, the rooms are not kept up and it is in an isolated spot. I was traveling alone. I tried to take a nap, but couldn't sleep. When I met back up with... More

Checked in to find a dirty room that smelled terrible. The floors were worn and the bathroom had a slippery film on the surface. To our surprise, on the wall was a smashed cockroach. That was enough, so we went to the office to indicate we could not stay. The manager refused to refund any part of the stay and... More
