“Good stay and very hospitable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

At first, this motel is quite good but compared to others were we stayed it's a three point rating for us.
We stayed there one night and arrived at 8 pm without reservation. Since all regular rooms were already full we got the suite for the price of an regular room. Perfect. The suite was quite big but also a bit old. But for one or two nights absolutely OK. A little breakfast is also served. The best at the motel is the owner who is so funny and hospitable and very easy going. We really enjoyed our talks with him. He is worth to stay there.

lacks, Owner at Claddagh Motel & Suites, responded to this review, October 12, 2013
We want to thank you for staying at the Claddagh and for your nice words about us (the owners).Delighted we live up to our reputation of good old Irish hospitality which comes so naturally to us, just the way we were brought up ourselves.Yes indeed, we are an older motel but we are constantly updating. We try to keep the old world charm while offering the modern day comforts and conveniences at the same time.It is important to us to maintain the character of the "Irish country cottage" while offering all the comforts of home..One area that upset me was that you only gave us a three on cleanliness. As a Registered Nurse myself, I am very involved in the daily cleaning of all rooms and suites. We have an excellent housekeeping staff and I personally try to bring the high standards of cleanliness expected in the health care field into my motel units. We are so focused on cleanliness that your rating in this area has shocked me. All rooms are checked every day prior to occupancy by either myself or the head housekeeper. However, once again we want to thank you for staying with us. Hopefully if you ever return to this area, you will come back to see us for more "good old Irish hospitality".

My mother and I were very pleased with our accommodations and the wonderful hospitality shown to us by the Innkeepers. I have stayed here once before many years ago and remembered how clean the room was and the property was well maintained. The motel was near all the attractions we wanted to visit. Alex was especially helpful in making suggestions of what else there was to see in the area. The mornings head start of delicious tea and coffee, scones, bagels etc. were abundant. The Gilmores could not have been more gracious and helpful with anything we may have needed. It was a wonderful experience.

Having stayed at the Claddagh several years ago, I was impressed with the updates Alex has
made. The bathrooms are tiled, the beds comfortable, and the kitchenette better furnished than some motels I have stayed at. The place was clean and the staff friendly. It's a good place because it's between Rockland and Camden, but quiet and nicely sited.

Stayed 2 nights at this quaint Motel. Extremely friendly and helpful owners.
Room was clean. Bed was comfy. Bathroom was clean however sink was outside the washroom and off to the side as part of a little kitchenette making it a tad inconvenient.
Grounds were very nice, providing various sitting and picnic areas with BBQ, also a pool.
In our particular room internet was a tad spotty which was odd considering the the extender was right by our room (most likely a technical issue).
Breakfast was provided in an area of the main office. Although small, it was a cozy and sunny spot.
We did the enjoyable walk (5 minutes or less) down the street and through a yard (their rental property I believe) to get to the nearby beach.
Overall a nice stay. At the time we stayed and considering price paid would say ok value. Dont forget to ask for AAA/CAA discount.

This is one of those road side motels that meets your needs for a fair price. If you are looking for a clean, safe and comfortable night's stay without all the extras this is the place for you. The owner is charming and he was more than happy to show us the room. Our room was small, but so clean you eat off the floor. It was all we needed and we were glad to have it.

This is a motel you see on the side of the road and wonder can I spend 2 nights here before I get onto the rest of my vacation and the answer was "yes" for us. Alex is delightful, his property is clean, neat, had a comfy bed, decent shower, nice continental breakfast and wonderfully located in Mid-coast Maine. We were heading for 7 days up the coast in Eastport and he provided a great stop on the way. I took a chance based on Trip Advisor's reviews, good job, guys.
