We recommend a room facing the Saint Croix River. Adirondack chairs outside the room make it easy to enjoy the view of the tides and Canada. A shaded walking/bike path leads from the motel along the river to downtown Calais. We highly recommend this basic, clean, and cheerful motel during a visit to Calais!

This is a nice, basic place. We had a riverview room with a king sized bed and enjoyed a gorgeous, unobstructed view of the St. Croix. Each room opens to the outside, and has a concrete porch with chairs. We didn't sit out there because the weather was lousy, but had it been nicer, this would have been a great feature. The owner is a longtime area resident and has lots of great stories. The room was well maintained as well as clean.

Upon arrival there were long hairs and stains on the sheets. Both beds appeared to have been slept in but sheets hadnt been changed. Super disgusting!! Unfortunately not too many places to stay in Calais.

This hotel had friendly staff. When I arrived in my room neither microwave or refridge worked both were replaced immediately. The beds were comfy sheets soft and rooms were clean. I was part of a huge group traveling for business and they handled it with great aplomb. House keeping came in daily and made beds and gave clean towels hard to come by during covid 19 times. And made your bed, again hard to come by during covid 19 times. Some hotels I have been in won't do the beds or towels unless you ask. Yep the rooms are dated, but clean, and it is clean that is all I care about..... Also during covid 19 times so I give them cred for taking care of our mobile vaccination unit for Covid. One draw back after 10pm office closes and you can't get ice but there is a 24 hr Irving gas station not even a quarter of mile away.

We planned to spend one night and Calais and were in need of an overnight charge for our EV. We wanted a simple, clean motel with direct entrance to room. This was perfect, with clean room, very pleasant check-in. We had two double beds which was fine but you may want to request a room with a King. The ChargePoint charger worked great after I figured out how to load the app and add a credit card so you may want to do this in advance. If you have a Tesla as I do, make certain you have your adaptor. The have one charger with two ports. There is a Tesla supercharger 4 miles a way if you have a problem. Another plus was the price and the excellent diner next door. Plan to go to the diner and don't fret the lack of breakfast at the motel.
