Got in a bind while traveling when a friend had to go to ER. All hotels were booked for marathon. Someone in ER recommended this place. Slept with my clothes on. Bed very uncomfortable, bathroom had wallpaper trying to cover up mold in shower area. Table and chairs in the room were just gross. Not enough parking spaces for the... More

The room was nice and clean..........felt we had disturbed the receptionist and don't bother with breakfast, or consider it when looking at the prices of the rooms. If we were stuck and this was the only room available, OK, but otherwise we wont go back.

Stayed one night here. Staff were welcoming and friendly, but accommodation, though adequate, was rather shabby, perhaps not unexpectedly given the low price. Breakfast was basic. Good position for exploring Cape Elizabeth and Portland.

I was here four nights two weekday and two on Labor Day (US) weekend. Nice place, even though on a moderately travelled portion of Rte 1. All rooms run through front to back, so at night you can leave bathroom window open on quiet side, and close the front up to effectively block the road noise, which is not heavy... More

This is a no frills motel room but is the cleanest I've seen. We stayed here for one night visiting people in the area so the location was very convenient for us. Although there is a Comfort Inn nearby this place was much cheaper. If a clean room and a comfortable bed is what is important to you then this... More

We stayed here for one night - a last minute plan. The motel was extremely clean - to the point that they place a small mat just inside the entry to minimize tracking into the room. They even provide a boot tray for sandy shoes or muddy boots! Our room had two queen beds, and lots of room. Unlike similar... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed here for one night during a motorcycle trip through the white mountains. The location was perfect for our planned route and we also wanted to go to Cabellas. When we arrived at check in we met by the owner. The first words he said " oh you think you can save because you are 3"... More

This hotel was more like a motel as far as services offered were concerned. The rooms were very clean, spacious and had modern technology for security and comfort. The free breakfast was nothing more than danishes and muffins.

We were looking for an inexpensive option while visiting Portland, where the hotels were fairly booked, and prices were in $225 – 250 range. This was a great choice! Location was very convenient to Portland, a quick drive on Rt. 295, which was just up the road. There’s several coffee places nearby. The room was neat, clean, comfortable. While there... More
