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

Wanted somewhere to access a lot in Portland and surrounding area but was also looking for something economical. The place was cute, clean and easy to access the highway into Portland. We enjoyed our stay and everyone was nice. Would recommend if you don't want to stay on the busy city of Portland. It's quiet in evening and slept well... More

We travel without reservations for fun and adventure - we have stayed in some not so nice places but this is not one of them! I would return and I would recommend - friendly staff, clean room and bathroom - the price was right -

We stayed here 1 night on the way up to Rockport, and after a terrible experience at an America's Best Value in Connecticut, were somewhat tentative as we pulled in. We were very pleasantly surprised! Neat, clean, quaintly decorated...even doilies on the chairs in the room... and comfortable. Well run establishment. Definitely a thumbs up from us on this one!...

For many years, my parents have visited this hotel and reserve the same room on the first floor. The hotel is in a great location close to the town center and conveniences. When my Mom was hospitalized last December for 11 days, the hotel staff were always attentive to his need to extend his stay on a day to day... More
