Searsport doesn't get many tourists (we were asked what attracted us to the place), so this motel's income can't be large. So some items of "ordinary" maintenance have to be deferred. Our room had a screen door (a nice amenity), but the screen needed replacing. Since the room backed to a woods, we were able to open the bathroom window... More

I really liked the rooms at this place - they have the original pine paneled walls and cool enameled walls in the bathrooms. The furniture is modern, but appropriate to the tone of the place. The bed was quite comfortable, and the rooms spotless. I arrived late, and the lights were left on for me. There's a little TV I... More

An old-fashioned style motel with old-fashioned charm. We stayed at this motel while attending Fiber College in Searsport. Not only was the location convenient, the motel sponsored a special breakfast dish for Fiber College folks. Breakfast were lovely as they were held in a sunny porch with different breads, yogurt, quiche squares, and fruit. Juice and hot drinks were also... More

The room was the cleanest motel/hotel room that I have ever stayed in. The room was a nice size. The heater worked just fine. The location was extremely convenient to all of mid-coast Maine. There were lovely state parks in the vicinity. The breakfast was very nice, in a pleasant sun room with fresh Danish and muffins and a nice... More

This motel is really quaint. The rooms are clean and many of the walls are lined with pine which makes them quite cozy. The motel has a free breakfast each morning with a large selection of cereals, oatmeal, english muffins, muffins, and donuts. My one complaint about the breakfast is that the the room must be humid as the cereal... More

Our family of three originally booked one night at the Yardarm Motel. My wife had stayed here with her family decades ago. The location was perfect for all the things we had planned to do on our trip that we extended our stay to three nights (before we arrived) After arriving, we enjoyed it so much that we extended our...

Quaint, although a bit run down roadside inn. Clean and comfortable. Nice lounge chairs out front. Best part was the coffee and cereal bar for breakfast (surely a hit with the kids and a nice change from stale muffins). Price a little high, but its the high season. You can also walk to things on route 1.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, cozy room that was just what we needed to relax in for the night! Owners were very accommodating, leaving our room unlocked and with the lights on since we would be arriving late. Nice breakfast area with hot coffee and standard continental breakfast fare. Would not hesitate to stay here again!

We stayed here in July and it was wonderful and cozy. The room was clean, quiet, and very roomy. The window unit took a while to cool off the room, but it was a rare 90 degree day in Maine. The breakfast room was amazing. It had a lot of choices, great coffee, and it was a sunny room full... More

We had a great time at this wonderful motel. The owners are very helpful, the rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the continental breakfast in their sunroom every morning makes it a true bargain .
