We ended up in this Motel unexpectedly, having had an unfortunate experience with a double booking in a B & B in Rockland. It was an evening in mid August, which is NOT a good time to be looking for a vacancy in Maine! I found this Motel in our AAA book & called them &, fortunately, they were able to acommodate us for 2 nights. We had a large, very clean, room with a comfortable king sized bed. There is actually a lovely view from the porch in front of the rooms but ,sadly,we did not manage to see it until the last morning as it was very foggy & drizzly! The Motel is situated slightly out of Camden, right next to the Camden Hills State Park & Mt Battie, which is ideal for hiking. It is also within easy driving distance from Rockport & Rockland. The couple, who own it, are very welcoming & friendly & we noted that they had several "repeat" customers which is always a good sign! Additionally, the , help yourself, breakfast of juice, fresh homemade muffins & fruit salad, together with coffee or tea, is served in the sitting area in the main house, so everyone can chat, if they want to,& we met some very interesting people during our stay. We would be happy to stay there again & recommend it to others.
