Our extended weekend stay at the motel was as good as last year. The owners (Bob and Maureen Friend) welcomed us and were extremely helpful. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. We had a wonderful time on the island due in part to our lodgings. We look forward to our return. The owners are constantly working around the property... More

We were passing through on a motorcycle trip and was heading for the ferry the next morning. Read reviews on TA and can't say enough good things about this place. The owners greet you, and take a personal interest. I think they live on the property too. It only has 7 rooms, newly renovated and just lovely! It's tucked back... More

We loved this little motel. A bit of retro, a touch of the cutesy charm that tells you it's a family run operation and good housekeeping made this place an absolute pleasure to visit. The owners where hospitable and kind, even offering to loan us their own bikes for a bit if we wanted. The area is unique and rather... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at Maureen & Bob's motel ... great spot. As everyone on Tripadvisor has mentioned, it's extremely clean and well run. We stayed in the room with a new King size bed which was very comfortable. Room is compact, but has everything you need and price is certainly right. Maureen and Bob were wonderful hosts .......

Just returned from our stay at Friends Inn. We stayed one night but we had tried to stay for more, but they were completely booked. Hosts, Bob & Maureen were welcoming, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and very cozy. They have done a wonderful job updating their hotel. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking... More

This is what an excellent customer experience is all about! When 6 of us arrived on motorcycles we were greeted by Maureen & Bob who made sure we were happy with our rooms & wanted to know what else they could do for us. They helped us find great restaurants as well as site seeing we would not have found... More

Booked this hotel based on reviews here and was not disappointed. Owners are friendly and welcoming and rooms are more like bedrooms than hotel rooms. Quick and easy check inn and Maureen was super helpful in pointing out local places to see and eat at. Rooms are very updated, and like I said more like a bedroom in a house... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel was clean, with all the amenities we desired, the beds comfortable and the owners were friendly and delightful. Gave us great recommendations on where to eat and what to do. Even a friendly cat to greet us! Could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was a great spot... More
