I can't say enough about this Motel! The service at all levels was great! Have stayed once before and will go back next year. Very clean, comfortable, and located close to beach, restaurants, and attractions of any interest. The price is reasonable too!

Rooms were clean, quiet and updated. Pool was nice but not heated as advertised. Price was great. Rooms are very damp unless the air conditioner is on 62 degrees. Maine gets chilly at night so we had to keep the A/C low making the room damp. Keurig in room with 2 free cups a day was a bonus! Nice staff,... More

There was a large flat screened t.v. which seemed new as well. The room appeared to be very clean initially, however, a couple of the sheets and towels had stains. Housekeeping did make the beds but did... More
