Owners quite friendly. Shelf over sink was sloped outward so my toothbrush kept falling into the sink. Bed way too soft for me (but that is personal preference). Room was neat and clean. Had to get ice from the owners refrigerator, which I thought was a bit strange. They might want to consider adding an ice machine for their clients.... More

Nice first impression, nice people who care about taking care of people. I felt connected as soon as we walked through the door. The room was warm, clean, comfortable and cozy. I am looking forward to my trip back again. Love the area!

I'm a second generation innkeeper and I was very impressed by the hospitality shown by Heather and Glen. My room was spotless, well appointed, and exceptionally comfortable. Glen had recently updated the doors and carpentry, which looked great. The bedding was comparable to more expensive hotel properties - a complete surprise. Heather and Glen do most of the work on...

When we checked in the the man at the counter was rather rude. He made a snide remark about his wife which I find so rude. We have never been there until check in so what do we want to here about his wife issues for? It didn't set the stage. Our room was ok, we knew we were only... More

We are a German Familiy, who enjoyed our stay at the motel very much ! Very friendly and helpful couple at the front desk. Our boys were allowed to pick raspberries and blueberries in their yard.

My boyfriend and I were in the area this weekend visiting friends and due to a snowstorm, we decided to stay the night at the Eastland Motel. Before you read the rest of my review, I want to tell you right now.... if you're looking for a chain hotel, or a chain ANYTHING... don't bother to go to Lubec. However,... More

This seemed to be an older property in a very quiet area. The WiFi worked, and given the complete lack of a cell signal, I relied on that and the free phone service to contact the outside world. The muffins and coffee in the morning were good. The front desk was helpful in choosing a place for dinner.

Hey daytripsteve! Thanks so much for giving us a great review. You are right; the motel was built in 1959 and another wing constructed in 1982. Glen and I do the cleaning and construction and are working room by room to upgrade and improve. We have completed half of the rooms in various degrees, but still have a long way... More

We stayed in room next to office, very clean and comfortable, Fresh homemade muffins were great and they were able to tell us about the blueberry fields that we passed on way up, very interesting.

If you find yourself visiting northern coastal Maine, try to stay at the Eastland Motel. Good conversation, friendly atmosphere, clean, spacious rooms...Nice place to stay. Fresh homemade blueberry muffins in the morning, along with fresh coffee, tea, fruit, and other goodies are offered as a courtesy to those who are staying with them. Comfy beds and lots of TV channels... More
