3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

Stayed solo for two weekend nights in Oct. 2010 to attend a retreat nearby. Easy to find on Route 1 just over the Rockport/Camden border. This seems to be a family run business, not a big hotel chain. They give you a real motel key off a hook. The rooms are in two two-story buildings across the parking lot from the Office/Restaurant.

Peak "leaf peeping" season rate, with 10% AAA discount was $104 for two double beds. Room had high speed internet, cable tv, coffee maker, hair dryer and motel shampoo/soaps. Decor is kind of dated. Somewhere between 1980's country motif and 1950's colonial reproduction. Room was very clean, but it did have a distinct smell that I can only describe as "like grandmas house".

Has an outdoor heated pool, which I did not use. I could hear the people walking about upstairs, which was a minor distraction.

The restaurant is well attended, with plenty of local retirees (which translates to good, unpretentious food for a decent price) along with a few tourists carbing up before hiking nearby Mt. Battie, which you can see from the parking lot. I ate the BEST eggs benedict I have ever ordered. Had pizza and wings with beer for dinner. This little place was hopping on a Saturday night! Not sure how they fit a jazz band in there on Friday nights.

For my neads, I was quite happy with this hotel. Great for families or seniors on a budget. Not recommended for seasoned travelers or the country club crowd.

This was a very nice reasonably priced place to stay right outside downtown Camden. The room was very clean and pretty. Loved the lacy curtains and cozy wall paper. Office staff was very nice. the adjacent Elm Street grille restaurant has great pizza! Would stay again.

Warm pool, home cooked food in restaurant and lots of it. Could walk to town if you`re in good physical condition and the temperature isn`t over 75F. otherwise it`s uphill all the way back.

This is a very well kept motel. It is a little older establishment but the rooms are extremely decorated nicely, are very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The room had charming appointments! There is a restaurant onthe premises that serves a delicious breakfast. The grounds are lovely too.
