We enjoyed our stay at Maine Idyll Motor Court. Freeport can be an expensive area and only a handful of places let you bring your dog along with you. I booked a cottage on-line and called ahead to make sure they knew we were bringing along our Jack Russell. Cottage number 7 had two rooms with a kitchen, a bathroom... More

Nice motor court style motel. It was near shopping in Freeport, but far enough away to be quiet. The only real negative I had was the bad wi-fi reception, but otherwise it was quite nice. Showers spacious with a sit down area if needed.

We stayed one night, my husband and mother and daughter and myself. What a great cabin #4. Perfect for us with 2 separate rooms and a kitchen and bathroom and porch. Wish we could have stayed an extra couple of nights to explore the area more. We went to Gritty McDuff's for dinner and ate outside on the deck, this... More

My wife and I chose this motor court because of its location near multiple relatives we were to visit while in Maine. Our driver followed us, as my wife had to return early for appointments as I stayed longer. We chose Cabin # 4 with 2 bedrooms (and a fire place), so the driver had his own room. Having drive...

This was our first stay, but friends have stayed here for years and recommended that we do so as well. This is a classic "motor court" with mostly individual cabins. Very friendly staff, convenient to shopping in Freeport and a quick trip to Portland. Clean, well set up, and many cabins have fireplaces. Would definitely stay here again.

The Maine Idyll was built in the 1930's, and although modernized, still feels like a piece of an earlier generation. Very good--reasonably priced, clean, and everything in working order Could be better--highway noise from I-295 was quite noticeable.

This was our first stay here but it won't be our last. I can hardly wait to bring my whole family here. The cabin was so comfortable and clean. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. After a day of shopping in Freeport I really looked forward sitting on the porch with a good book.

My wife and I have stayed here twice and both times were excellent! Lovely cabins and a friendly atmosphere. Very bucolic and relaxing. Pet friendly too! Look forward to coming again when we have the chance.

This hotel is a real step into the past. A genuine US 1 motor hotel with individual cabins for rooms. Our cabin was clean and well-maintained. Room included kitchenette and a TV with good cable service. Breakfast was fine: a selection of baked goods and good coffee. The only negative was the drone of the nearby interstate but that did...
