Never had a problem here. Sarah, especially, keeps it that way! The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. I enjoy my stay every time. During the week there is wine and cheese for the guests and I think that is a nice touch!

Thank you for writing. I'm glad to hear that Sarah takes good care of you on your visits here. I count myself as very fortunate that I get to work with people who genuinely care about a guest's visit to our hotel.

We were in the area for a family weekend at a local college and were very last minute on our plans. We dropped in on a chance that they had any availability as most were booked solid for the weekend. The front desk clerk was very accommodating and said she did in deed have a room available for the following... More

I have stayed here several times and never had a bad stay right from the front desk staff to the cleaning staff ..the best thing is the whoopee pies they give you at check inn ... The restaurant is a great value and there are several stores close to the motel

This facility was not bad but just OK. When we arrived at the opposite end from the office to take our luggage in, there were construction-type people lingering outside the entrance without shirts. We are not prudes by any means but it made us a little more cautious. As it turned out, the clientele were mostly extended stay workers who... More

We stayed twice this summer because of sports, and our teams were staying there. The staff was very nice but the hotel is in a need of updates. The rooms are clean but they are old. The location is right off the highway which is convenient with lots of shopping right there. Definitely a hotel to sleep and go and... More

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your review. We focus on providing spotlessly clean rooms where everything works at a reasonable price. You are correct that we don't replace our furniture as frequently as some hotels. However, this is money saved that we pass on to our guests in the form of lower rates & quality... More

This location is the best in Waterville. Everything you want is just steps away. My room was very clean, spacious, really comfy bed, fast internet, and the service was excellent. Everyone is really friendly and the value for money is unmatched. I wouldn't think twice in choosing to stay here in the future. Highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the time to write. I am sorry for the condition of the sofa-bed in your room. The sofa beds are made with clean sheets, but are rarely used.

Now, I understand that there is limited competition in Waterville, ME for a good hotel, but c'mon, this 2 star motel does not deserve 4.5 stars from TripAdvisor reviewers. The property is old, the rooms need significant updating with smelly walls, carpets and bathrooms along with items falling apart. The walls and ceiling are paper thin, I could hear the... More
