My wife and I booked here having read a few Tripadvisor reviews which were generally positive. But I should have been more careful at noticing the dates of the reviews, which were quite a few months (years?) old. That's a bad sign because it means not too many people are staying there. There are 10 units in a separate motel... More

We enjoyed our stay at this motel very much. Owner was very willing to please and accommodating. It is a small one level "motor court" style motel, which we love because it is so much easier to carry the bags in when you can park in front of your door! (we don't exactly travel light, lol!) The room was very... More

Sitting in Freeport at a Starbucks, on a driving trip through Maine, I decided to cancel the planned drive to Bar Harbor. Acadia was closed because the government shut down. A trip through the mountains in the northwestern part of the state looked good. I needed a room THAT NIGHT and it was 4 p.m. Trip Advisor on my tablet,... More

The small breakfast cafe was very nice and the food delicious. They are akso motorcycke friendly. If you need a room in Skowhagen this would... More

We were very afraid at first glance, but glad we didn't judge a book by its cover. The room was simple but very clean, a back door opened to allow a breeze thru, and the beds were very comfortable. The pool was clean and the kids loved swimming there and in the river(jumping off the dock). The breakfasts were absolutely... More

We stayed here for three nights for a baseball tournament. The owners could not have been more accommodating in every way. The rooms were simple but clean. The Pool and river were great and the breakfast was like having your mom cook for you.

The Kyes Motel may not look like much, but it is worth the stay. The hospitality shown by the owner made thstay well worth it. From keeping the pool open late to use of a covered picnic area, our group felt welcomed and comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

I stayed here with some friends this past summer. It was charming and quaint, and I loved the location. Right on the river with lovely woods and an easy walk to town. The owner, Dana, was extremely friendly and relaxed, and he even hung out with us when we made a bonfire in the back. The rooms are designed in... More
