“Clean and comfy stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Yankee Clipper. We love when old 50's style motels are updated and the new owners here did a great job on this one. It is very clean and the beds very comfortable. I especially loved that the floors were hardwood (actually laminate) instead of carpeting that 9 times out of 10 is usually not very clean even in the best hotels. The price was quite reasonable also.

This is not a four diamond hotel so don't expect it to be. However as one who has stayed in hundreds of hotels all over America and Canada, I will tell you this is one of the cleanest rooms I have ever had. It has your basic needs. Comfortable beds. Coffee pot maker is a bit less than desirable but give five stars to the cleaning staff. Superb. Close to the road but the noise was never a factor. Would stay again without hesitation.

Recently stayed overnight at the Yankee Clipper. Typical hiway motel. One floor, parking outside the door. The room was impeccably clean. The bathroom was supplied with toiletries and sufficient towels for two. The bed was comfortable and there wasn't any trouble sleeping. The night of our stay it was pouring rain which added a little atmosphere tothe evening. The office staff were very friendly .
I recommend this motel for a short stay if you are in the Camden , Belfast, Rockport Maine area.
The price was extremely reasonable

Room Tip: It seemed that all rooms are basically the same.

This is a gem of a motel. Spent two nights there. The old mom and pop design meets the brand new construction and amenities. The best of both worlds. Our room was spacious and modern and very comfortable. Laundry facilities were outstanding. Friendly people at the desk. Close to the center of town. Perfect stay.

We spent a night in Belfast last week, and were so surprised to see this motel was almost completely renovated from the ground up. Our room was so clean and so new, it felt like we were the first ones that stayed here, and the king sized bed was very comfortable. The location is close to downtown and right off US Route 1 - so very easy to find, and the staff gave us a tip to eat at the Nautilus restaurant right down the block - and it was also fantastic....What a great worry free stay! We will be back. PS- the price was the best in the area.....

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the front and have an outside door, so they are all great. We stayed in number...

Going to Yankee Clipper is like walking into a completely new space. The bathroom fixtures sparkled ........ they were that new and clean.Very clever layout and use of space.
Extremely good value for the price.

Awaken at Yankee Clipper. We had booked somewhere else but something gone wrong with the room assignement so we had this two queen bedroom at Yankee Clipper with a 10$ discount. It's almost new, clean and pleasant and it could be a 4* rate but, unfortunatly the alarm has rung from 6.30 am to 7.00 am with nobody explaning what was wrong or what we were supposed to do. Eventually no sorries or explanations also at the check out. Sorry but .... No thanks!!
