This is a small homey cottage-atmosphere motel, centrally located to many interesting sites in the area, including Portland, Freeport and Brunswick. While the restaurant is closed for now, there are a wide variety of restaurants for all tastes. Conveniently located off 295 on Route 1, one is only ten minutes from Freeport (L.L. Bean), to the north; 20 minutes from... More

By looking at this motel, you would think it is average at best. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. There was even a place for me to do my work. I would come again.

We have stayed at this friendly and fine motel for a number of years while traveling through Maine. The owners are kind and welcoming, and the rooms are perfectly clean and well-kept, as well as a fine value. The location is particularly excellent, given the proximity of the riverside old mill park, which provides a great place for walking and... More

This is a nothing special motel. There is nothing particular 'down east' about it. Although it was clean, the price for the room was far too much for such a basic place. The was old and stiff, the sheets and towels were rough. Although its not entirely the motels fault, my experience was made terrible by the drunk people surrounding... More

As portland was fully booked over the weekend the visitor information center in Fryeburg gave us this hint - and it was a good one. Reasonably priced (at least compared to the other options and the fully booked chain motels in Portland), and very charming. We stayed in one of their older, cheaper rooms, but everything was well maintained, and... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive yet comfortable accommodation near Portland or Freeport, this is the place. The chain motels in those towns are fairly high-priced. We found this location by using Google Earth, and then checked TripAdvisor. Most of the reviews were very old and one suggested the owners intended to close down, which is not at all... More

I grew up in Yarmouth and had always knew of people from away staying at Down East Village, though I never needed to myself. Two summers ago my husband and our son traveled to Yarmouth to visit my mother and other family. The house was going to be filled with family so we opted to stay someplace close by. I... More

This is not a resort hotel, but rather a family hotel that is also business-friendly, and great for family reunions and get-togethers of many kinds. Fine for singles, couples, families, business travelers, tourists -- for people whose destination is Yarmouth, Freeport or Portland, as well as for those just making an overnight stgop before continuing onward. The restaurant offers excellent... More

This motel is a thowback to the fifties and a time when families traveled for the destination and the enjoyment of each others company. We just spent a long weekend with extended family that has been coming here for the Clam Festival for about 25 years, and my wife and I had a wonderful time. There is not much to... More

The location was great (close to family for Thanksgiving feast), but our room was absolutely disgusting. The mildew stench gave my wife and I a headache, our noses were stuffed, and our clothing/suitcase wreaked. The family owned, small town feel of the place was very nice and I don't like complaining, but had to say something. My other family members... More
