Unique find in beautiful Stonington ME. A variety of accommodations for couples or families. Immaculate rooms/cottages, equipped with refrigerators, tables, couches etc. for a very comfortable stay. Larger apartments have kitchens stocked with dishes, pots, pans and essentials. The owner, Barrett does a great job with this property and with welcoming guests to this quaint fishing and artists village. This... More

I've always visited this area in the summer and stayed with family. Visiting in December is quite different, and my family was extremely pleased with the friendliness and cleanliness of the 2 bdr accomdations at the Boyce's Motel. The condo was complete with kitchenette and coffee maker. You can walk out your door and see the beautiful sunrise on the... More

My husband and I stayed at Boyce's Motel for 4 nights and could not have been more pleased. The unit was sparkling clean and very well-equipped. There was everything we needed, including some things we brought from home, not being sure what we would find. During our stay, Barrett (the owner) went out of his way to be helpful, even... More

It is so refreshing to have the opportunity to stay at a motel when you leave feeling as though you were offered a good value and a comfortable stay. That is exactly what my husband and I experienced after staying two nights in room #1. Other than price, our most important priority is cleanliness when spending the night at a... More

We absolutely loved Boyce's. We had room 2, right on the street with windows looking out to the harbor. Just a few steps across the street to the deck with our morning coffee and a beer in the evening to catch the sun going down. Loved watching all the boats come in with their lobster haul and unload in the... More

This was our second stay at Boyce's Motel and again it was good. We had the "cottage" up the road and could see the harbour from our window. The cottage was immaculate and thoughtfully equipped. We liked that Barratt was a visible presence and ran a "tight ship". We are fond of Stonington because it is a working port with... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. It was just at the start of their offseason rates, so I paid $60(plus tax, etc)for room 4, which came with 2 twin beds. The room was clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. The refrigerator and in-room coffee were nice things to have. I spent a fair amount of time at their deck... More

We stayed for a week in a small apartment on the second floor with a deck view of the harbor.(#11) It was absolutely perfect. Barrett Gray, the owner, has thought of everything you could possibly need. I think it was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed in. His staff is very friendly and helpful, as is Barrett....

Our host Barrett was outstanding--helpful, fun, resident at the property, and an excellent manager. Room very comfy, furnished in cottage style. Clean. Wifi, coffee maker in room. Cocktail deck 20 feet away across Main Street on the water--private location for coffee in am (espresso shop next door) or wine from town market (five minutes away on foot). So much to... More
