We wanted to stay in Rockland, but it was Lobster Festival and we needed a room last minute, so we stayed 45 minutes away in Belfast, at the Gull Motel. The rate was fair for this time of year, but I would spend a little more and stay at a nicer place next time. However, if you are on a budget, this motel was clean and we had two queen beds, night tables, a bureau, a small dining table, a fridge, an open closet to hang clothes, a suitcase stand, and small but serviceable bathroom. Our tub/shower combination had some kind of plumbing issue and leaked water all over the floor the first morning. we used towels to prevent this the second morning, but hope they fix this problem!! We mentioned a burned out lightbulb and it was replaced before we returned that evening. We stayed two nights. There is a Keurig coffee machine and pre-packaged muffins in the lobby in the morning, so not really 'breakfast'. We highly recommend the Belfast Co-op for breakfast and a nice selection of organic meats and cheeses, by the way. I agree with the other reviews that the policy of allowing smoking just outside the rooms is offensive to the non-smoking guests! The motel puts ashtrays and chairs outside each door - this is a motel, so we had people smoking 3 feet from our windows! I understand that they do not want smoking in the rooms, of course, but if they want to designate a smoking area, it should be away from the doors/windows of other guests.
