Friendly owner with a 14 room motel in a small town. Very clean throughout and very reasonably priced. Park in front of the room for convenient access. It's on the edge of town surrounded by farmland . A nice find.

This place is not fancy, but clean and very reasonably priced. It is located in a quiet area just outside of town. The owner is very pleasant which is also a plus. The rooms are not huge, but are large enough. There are chairs and tables outside if you chose to hang out there.

The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Makes you wish you lived there. The room was charming, clean, and very comfortable and the view is beautiful. So glad I stayed there and look forward to returning. It's close to everything. The price is very good.

I've stayed here a couple times while visiting family in the area. Rooms are basic but clean and well kept. Very affordable and convenient location on a main road. Innkeeper allowed me to check in early easily which was also great.

This motel is not fancy but is very clean and comfortable. The owner is friendly and very personable. We have overlooked this place for years, but now it is our first choice when looking for somewhere to stay when we are in town. The motel is located fairly close to the down town area and there are a couple restaurants...

Run by local people who can direct a body anywhere in God's country. Clean, relaxed atmosphere. We've been there multiple times over the years; my kids have fond memories and we'll be there another time yet in 2015!

Although it is not "new" or "modern", this motel provides all the basics and then some. The room was super clean, the fridge and microwave were spotless, and the room smelled "clean", (hard to describe, but you know it when you smell it). The owner is on site and a very friendly lady who wants to satisfy her customers.

We just rolled over the 2k mile on our odometer and here we are in Caribou, Maine! Thanks to TripAdvisor community for reviews of this place, we landed the last room here tonight. This is a family owned motel of the best throw-back kind. Donna's mom made the quilt on the bed. The Russell Motel does one thing really well:...

Our room was very comfortable and very clean. Free wifi was available. Towels were changed daily. Donna, in the office, is a very personable. I would recommend this motel to anyone traveling up in the Caribou area. The rates were comparable with others in the area.

This motel is very clean and comfortable with friendly people. The rooms themselves are the the biggest, but well set up. The prices are very reasonable considering the lack of lodging choices in the area. This was our first time staying here, but we would definitely stay here in the future.
