I've stayed at the Spring Fountain Motel 4 months during the last year. I really like it. The owners are great. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the price is right. This is the only place I will stay in the area.

Sam and his family provide great service and hospitality. Clean, comfortable rooms, pet friendly and awesome rates. I really enjoyed my stay! Wonderful family owned business. Weekly rates available, close to any amenities you may need. Beautiful harbor walk way in town. 20 minutes from Bangor .

July 11,2015 We stayed there last night because the other places were full. The bedding was clean, but the bathroom floor and tile was not. The motel is from the 1960's and in bad repair. The wooden steps and decks are rotten and dangerous. The units in back have chairs on the deck with stuffing hanging out. I don't think... More

Spring Fountain is a very basic motel directly on Rt 1 just south of Ellsworth. We had spent a long day touring the Penobscot peninsula, the sun was going fast, and we did not have a hotel nor did we see any others available online -- so we snagged this place for the night. We were given Room 30 --... More

I have to say, after driving 3.5 hours in the rain and having another hour to go to get to my destination for a wedding, I couldn't go anymore so I ended up here by circumstance. I am a HOTEL SNOB and this was a quaint place that I loved. The beds were comfy, the place was clean and I... More

I'm not sure if the other reviewers got their places mixed up but this place was nothing like what they've described here. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. My friend and I stopped here last weekend during an impromptu road trip to join our friends in Bar Harbor. The Manager was very friendly and accommodating, even though we stopped... More

This was the worst place I've ever stayed in. I kept my socks on the entire time because the floor was so dirty. We got our lap blanket out of the car to sleep under because not sure bed spread was ever washed. Bathroom discusting. Not sure how it passed the health inspections.
