“Ok for 1 night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Paid a very reasonable price to stay here and got one of the "cottages" at the back of the complex. Unfortunatley it is getting a bit tired now and the decor could do with updating. The carpet was a bit worn and there was a damp smell in the room. The weird thin was that the cottage semmed to be sinking at the back! The floor was sloping and we felt a bit disorientated walking round!
However, we had no problem sleeping and breakfast was ok. Staff all very helpful.

The Ellsworth Motel is an older, small (16 rooms) mom&pop establishment. If you like off the beaten path experiences, you will love this motel. Rooms are smallish, show their age, but clean and functional, with great A/C, and a little fridge and microwave. It's a real, authentic 50's era experience (except for the above mentioned amenities). Part of the history of this place is that it first started offering rooms to travelers on the nearby rail route. At times, you may hear a train whistle still, and the slightest hint of iron wheels rolling on the tracks.

The Ellsworth Motel is very tired. Miranda and her Mother try very hard to make it a nice place to stay. The price is reasonable and the location is great. However, the exterior and rooms, while clean, are badly in need of some TLC

This place is a dump and the service here is awful and it needs to be brought up from the 50's and it also needs matching room decor in all the rooms and not stuff from family dollar or the dollar tree. I was quoted one price on the phone and when I arrived I was charged almost double what I was quoted I will never stay here again and would not recommend this place to anybody and would recommend Jasper's down the road. And the swimming pool here is now filled in with concrete whats up with that?

After trying to find a motel in the expensive Acadia area, we were able to stumble upon online on this motel. It was the cheapest rate we could find. Even though we were wary about the condition of the motel we took the risk. To our surprise the motel was very well run. It is rusty but was clean and located perfectly for our 2 night stay. Owners were very quick to respond and responsive to any concerns when hurricane Earl stuck us during the Labor day weekend. I would definitely say that you can consider this motel if you have a tight budget.
