“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

Recently returned to Machias for UMM homecoming after 25 years. Stayed at the Machias Motor Inn and was it really comfortable place to stay. There are two levels and all rooms are directly viewing the water. Rooms are comfortable and staff is very friendly and helpful. Another group had the suite and it was very spacious with kitchen. Helen's restaurant is right next door and the food is excellent at great prices. You cant go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: If you want to walk out to the river you can stay at the lower level rooms.

I spent two months at the Machias Motor Inn while working at the Cutler Naval Station. The suite I had was a 1 bedroom efficiency, which had a small kitchen which was quite handy. Helen's was close by and everyone at the hotel and restaurant were friendly. Maine is beautiful and the Machias Motor Inn is a good way to experience the Maine difference.

You get a room with a view of the river and quick access to Helen's Restaurant for the blueberry cream pie. Having said that, the rooms are showinge their age. The bed needs to be replaced. The faucets in the sink run only a dribble. The price seemed a bit high for what you get. Next time we'll get pie to go and stay somewhere else. Not bad, really, just shoul be better for the price.

We stayed in the new section I think room 32. The room was clean had a fridge and microwave. The beds very very comfortable and with the air conditoning on we did not hear any noise from the street. We enjoyed the big deck shared with the other rooms. The view of the river was great. The next morning we drove to Cutler Harbor for a trip with Bold Coast Charter it only took about 30 minutes to get there from Machias.

If you travel with your pet and are looking for a clean and comfortable room, we would highly recommend the Machias Motor Inn. The staff was excellent and very accommodating to us. The views of the river are wonderful and the motel is only thirty minutes away from the Bold Coast Charter Co. in Cutler for a puffin tour. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return.

I had previously made a reservation several weeks before at this hotel but when I got there the reservation had already been cancelled and the hotel was booked for the night. The clerk did help me find a room at another nearby hotel. Later on after inquiring about the reservation mishap to the manager, she could not give me any valid reason for the reservation cancellation other than to give her apology and stated that "many hotels overbook intentionally to off-set any unforeseen cancellations." So I guess my name was one of the ones overbooked. So I will not trust to make any future reserevation at this hotel.

, Manager at Machias Motor Inn, responded to this review, October 1, 2010
As stated in an email to this guest, the reservation was incorrectly made for August 14, not September 14. It was recorded as a "no-show" for August 14. I have no way of knowing if the error was made by our reservationist or by the guest.

The clerk on duty helped the guest secure a room at a nearby motel.

It is not our policy, nor has it ever been, to intentionally over-book.
