Stayed at this hotel while in town to attend my father-in-law's funeral. There aren't a lot of choices in Calais and this isn't the Marriott. The rooms are dated but they were very clean. The room as everything that you need including a microwave and fridge. The staff was very friendly. We even held a dinner at the hotel for... More

Friendly staff.. the rooms where a little dated and the folks next door had a dog that barked. Not sure if this was a pet friendly motor inn??? But that wasn't the inns fault. Nice bar & restaurant, greeted by friendly waitress and the meal was good and the drinks were as well.

Stayed here before heading into Canada. Not much else to choose from, but it was clean, comfortable, and the staff was friendly. It could use some cosmetic updates, so I was pleasantly surprised that the room was as nice as it was. The pool was closed, and we didn't try the restaurant, but I would stay here again.

If you can avoid staying here if you are heading for Canada find somewhere else to sleep! The room was one big stain! Stained floors, bedding, reminded me of what a flop house would be. The desk attendant needed to be remediate in customer service. It was a two floor walk up that I would not reccomend to anyone.

Great little find on our trek north. Nothing fancy about this little place, but the beds were comfy and the place was very clean. Downstairs pub had great food and a fabulous atmosphere! Staff was very helpful.

I booked this stay even though the reviews were no better than average or even worse. I have to say any, and all, doubts were completely erased from the moment we arrived.The front porch is filled with flowering baskets and flags. The front desk was friendly, helpful and eager to take care of us. The lady gave us lots of... More

One of the few hotels in Calais. It's nothing fancy a bit outdated but it was clean and the staff was friendly. Room had a microwave and small fridge. Wifi did not seem to work very well. Other than that the ac worked well and we enjoyed our brief stay.

We pulled into Calais Me on a driving tour of north east states. It was late and we needed a place to sleep. This is an older place that was probably originally built in the 50's. We stayed in the older unit. At daylight we discovered two or three more modern units on the site. It was ok. It served... More

Recently had a mtg to attend at the motor inn....getting in was a challenge, no ramps, no bathroom with handicap access??!! Did not think that was allowed! Poor treatment of those with challenges. Friends went down to the bar but there was NO access for me

nothing fancy, pretty basic, needs some refurbishing, remodeling, but it is OK. Bar-restaurant in the basement is an OK option in a town where there is not much else to do. Typical border town with hardly any other option.
