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 It's nothing fancy a bit outdated but it was clean and the staff was friendly.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.

Second time staying here in two years. Last year was decent - had a bigger room (surcharge). Okay stay with outdated furniture. However this year we arrived to be told we weren't in the main building. We were not notified of this when I reserved two months ago. They were booked full with a wedding so I didn't complain but...

It was late and we knew we could stop for the night with our RV but I wish we had an alternative. The RV parking place is a remote part of the parking lot near the street. First, BRING A 30/15 amp 3 prong ADAPTER. We paid the flat rate of $25 service but if we hadn't had an adapter,... More

We always tend to stop here for the night when coming back from Bangor. Not the best place I've ever been to. The beds are small but have lots of pillows. I did pull down the comforter to check the sheets like I always do no matter where I stay, they had a yellow stain on them. Hubby went to... More

First we were quoted 1 price and then it went up 20 dollars. OK so 65 is not bad if the room is nice, but it was not nice. It had mold on the top of shower, rust on the shower handle mold on the floor by the toilet. Tiles in the room look like they were going to fall... More
