Stayed one night and my buddy couldn't sleep because he had bugs crawling on him in the middle of the night. Owner blammed us and said that we brought them in. He assumed this as we were on motorcycles. Owner wouldn't reimburse us. Furthermore, the furniture and decor is from the early seventies. Way over priced dirty accomodations! Do not... More

We stayed at Kyes while visiting the Skowhegan fair. The owners are so nice and welcoming! They did a quick check in and indicated a nice restaurant for us to get lunch. When we got back later that night, they happily allowed us to use the pool (around 10:15pm) since it was so hot and humid all day. We were... More

The motel is a little dated, admittedly, but our room was comfortable and clean and well-located just a couple of minutes from the centre of Skowhegan. The owner was very friendly and made us feel at home, and the small coffee shop was a good and easy spot to have breakfast at a reasonable price. The free wifi worked well.... More

Wanted to like this vintage motel, however upon entering we encountered more than half a dozen moths flying around. The front door, originally jalousie windows, was boarded up with plywood. The carpet was filthy, which really creeped me out so much so that I was unable to even enjoy a cup of tea in the room. I thought I would... More

Dana and Pat are congenial hosts. They were so gracious and attentive to our family travel needs. They opened their little coffee shop just for us after we slept in and got much need rest after a long day of travel. Dana shared a card trick that had us all baffled and stumped. If you are looking for a personalized,... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Kyes motel for a single night, and we both loved it. The owner was the sweetest, most welcoming man we have met in the 1,5 month we have been travelling around the US. He gave us some great tips regarding what to see in the area, where to eat and so on. If we... More

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
