“Will definitely return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Enjoyed my stay here. It was wonderful that the hotel was still open so late at night - I got there at 11 pm expecting them to be closed. The rooms were very nice and large. Also, the TVs look like they were updated in the last few months. Great place and would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the Katahdin Valley Motel as the middle point on a bike ride from Bangor to PresqueIsle Maine and it suited our needs perfectly. The room was no frills, comfortable, clean and quiet, just what you want after being in the saddle for five hours. There is a gas station with plenty of supplies next door and a small restaurant within walking distance that opens at 4:00am if you are looking to make an early start. Check in was easy highlighted by a very nice lady helping us out. Can’t go wrong with this motel if you are staying in the Katahdin Valley region.

My brother and I stayed the night during a snowmobile trip. It's convenient to I-95 and right on the ITS snowmobile trail. There's a gas station next door and another one a hundred yards away with a restaurant in it. It's an older motel that shows it's age but it was clean. The room was large and not sure what the other reviewer was talking about but the AC was NOT in the bathroom. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. It's nothing fancy but if you're looking for a clean place to stay with plenty of room for your gear at a reasonable price, KVM works. We had stayed here several years ago and we'll probably will be back during an upcoming sledding season.

We stayed in this motel for two nights and we found it and its rooms clean and big enough. It is in a perfect location for everybody driving on the I-95 close to the NE boundary of US or travelling to the Baxter State Park. There's no breakfast included, but you get 10% discount in an outlet nearby (1 minute by car) which offer very good stuff!

We just spent 2nights, 3 days at the KVM, to do some snowmobiling. 5 of us stayed in the apt. above the garage, more than enough room,very clean, and comfortable. This is our 3rd year staying there and see no need to change. Easily accessable to Rt. 95, and snowmobile trails run right thru the Motels yard, Gas and resaurants also within walking distance. Will try to get back this year if time permits, if not certainly will be back next year. The managers are very accomadating.
Thanks Again

We went for a high school graduation. We were going to stay someplace else but they told us "We are better and have an outdoor pool". So, the outdoor pool was so dirty and murky that we would have drowned there. The rooms were musty smelling with poor air conditioning. The 4 year old granddaughter of the owners was knocking on doors at night alone.....dangerous for her. I had no shower curtain in my room and the air conditioner was in the bathroom. It would have been very cool if I had decided to sleep in the bath tub.
Next year, we will stay in the place they told us was not as good as them......in island Falls with an indoor pool. Vacationland Estates.
We would not recommend this hotel.

The Katahdin Valley Motel is a family-run business in Maine, right off the exit ramp from I-95. It is a rather typical motel, and is showing signs of age, but the place is exceptionally clean, and the mattresses are extremely comfortable. A great value for $63 per night! Try breakfast at Brenda's, located at the Shell service station on the other side of the I-95 underpass.
