Our room was small, clean and tidy, and not especially luxurious, BUT the rate was low and the location was prime. Also, the proprietor, Barrett, was what makes this a special place. Would go back again. It's a lovely, unspoiled seaside town.

Visiting Stonington is like taking a trip back in time, and Boyce's is no exception. The decor feels like you're visiting your great aunt's apartment. Dated, but incredibly clean and some nice little touches, such as a night light in the bathroom and complimentary bottled water in the fridge. I arrived 3 hours early for check in, but Barrett had...

Talk about catering to your every need. Owner Barrett Grey is the epitome of a gracious host. Rooms are immaculately clean and super cute room! Great linens on the bed, beautiful towels and perfectly outfitted rooms. We had everything in our efficiency. Coffee pot, coffee, cream, sugar, cup, plates, pans, cutlery, salt and pepper shakers (filled!) and even two bottles... More

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

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
