“Wonderful owners, clean, basic motel with fridge and microwave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We were there early in the season and were the only guests at this small motel. The owners were very helpful and also had amazing coffee in the office. The motel itself is good. Nothing fancy but has what you need. Beds are fine.

This small facility is not your usual roadside motel. It has many features that one would expect to find in an inn or bed and breakfast. The rooms are quiet, spacious and uniquely decorated in a nautical theme. There are two doors, front and back, leading to porches downstairs or balconies on the second floor. One can sit outside sipping the amazing coffee that is provided and watch hummingbirds flitting around feeders and hanging baskets and listen to windchimes. Rooms are extremely clean and towels are soft and plentiful. Restaurants are scarce on this island but there is a fridge and microwave provided so one could easily keep small supplies of food on hand. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and I agree with a previous reviewer, that it is like visiting someone in his/her own home. I highly recommend this motel if you are visiting Campobello Island for any reason.

The owners, who bought the hotel several months ago, were friendly and informative. Don't let the outside appearance turn you off. The owners themselves think the outside appearance is ugly are working to improve it. Rooms are nice, clean and well-appointed. Central location on the island. They are now open year-around. We were happier with the Whale Watch Motel than another pricier hotel in St. Andrew's. Cathedral ceilings in second floor rooms. Walls are substantial, you will NOT hear your neighbors!

Room Tip: Second floor has cathedral ceilings

Two night stay in July. There are not many choices on Campobello Island for lodging or dining. Maybe one other motel and some cottages on the north end. Many I guess stay in Lubec, ME and see the island for the day. Motel was clean, comfortable and had pleasant, helpful owners. Nice bath and towels. Decent tube TV ( I've yet to see a decent picture on a newer digital flat screen) with a large but unusual selection of channels. Location was very convenient to the FDR property, only grocery store and pharmacy and ferry to Deer Island. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

The CWWM is a no-frills motel with lots of heart. New owners Jim and Fran have created a clean, comfortable and welcoming home-away-from-home for visitors to Campobello Island and the surrounding areas. Each room has 2 queen beds with quality mattresses, a table with 2 chairs, free Wi-Fi and standard cable TV, refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker and sliding glass door to the balcony (2nd floor) or patio deck (1st floor); 2nd floor rooms have vaulted ceilings. The bathroom is clean and functional, with vanity and a shower tub. Water pressure is strong and temperature is even. Unless you ask for something different, maid service will make your bed and change out your soap, plastic cups and (soft, not harsh and institutional) towels daily. Climate control is via a fairly quiet wall unit, but for a good part of the year you can just open the door for a little while!

Staying at the CWWM feels more like you are visiting with friends than staying at a low cost motel (and, btw, CWWM is the lowest priced accommodation on the island). Freshly ground complimentary hot coffee (or tea options!) awaits you in the office every morning -- fill your bottomless mug and take it with you for the day, if you like! Fran and Jim live on-site during the summer months and will help you plan your days and even make inquiry calls for you, as necessary (no phone in room). There is lots to explore, and astounding natural beauty to appreciate on the island, in the surrounding waters, and across the bay.

CWWM is not a waterfront location. Rather, it is central to the island, very near the T-intersection where the island’s entrance road splits into the two main roads on the island. This makes it very easy to stop by as necessary during a full day of enjoying all the island offers, and convenient for crossing the border to Lubec, ME (USA, with your passport) as well as taking the ferry to nearby Deer Island. There is a grocery store, pharmacy and gift shop across the street from CWWM and the two island restaurants are very nearby. If you prefer to relax with a good book, a glass of wine, or the warm sun on your sleeping face, the CWWM property has Adirondack chairs scattered about the lawn areas both in front and in back of the motel. And, there's a nice gas grill in back available to motel guests, too!

So, if you are looking for a spa resort, CWWM is not for you. Here you will get an economical, safe and quiet place to relax and sleep well while enjoying one of the most beautiful places on Earth. You will be welcomed by owners who care about you and will show you a hospitality usually experienced when you visit good friends. Make reservations -- they are often full!!!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms offer balcony and vaulted ceiling, and are probably a little quieter, but you mus...

Central location to the island. Clean and spacious room with TV, microwave, fridge, coffee machine. Helpful staff. Quiet at night for a good rest, comfortable beds. Simple and it was all we needed. Reserve ahead of time so as not to be disappointed. I would recommend this motel.
