I really wasn't sure what to expect given this place is a one story, highway side motel, but the service was good and the room was clean. I thought I had lucked out by getting a room on the back side of the motel (away from the traffic noise), but it backs up to the rear exit of the Downunder... More

We brought our children/grandchildren to Houlton, ME for a memorial service. Ended up with 7 rooms x 2 nights at the Shiretown Inn. Rooms exceptionally clean, beds comfortable and area quiet. We ate the the restaurant one night. Food was OK, but took almost 90 minutes to get all the food delivered. Admittedly, we gave them only 4 hours notice... More

With the very mixed ratings this motel received, I was a bit hesitant and more than a little concerned, but since one of the reviews mentioned asking for a room in the newly renovated section, I did just that and was delighted with the room. It was on the level of a Hampton Inn or a Courtyard Marriott - extremely... More

Room was comfortable. There was urine in the bathroom trash can. Used the pool and was a bit disappointed . The air in the pool room was warm . But the water was freezing. And way to much bleach. So much we had a rash and burns. Pool towels I brought turned white from the bleach as well. We didn't... More

We stayed in the "new" part of the hotel. The room was quiet, very clean, spacious and beds were comfortable..couldn't ask for anything more. The swimming pool was a ways from our room and we had to go outside and walk to the pool. I didn't think the pool looked clean and smelled of a cross between mold and strong... More

Stayed 2 nights. Room was comfortable. The pool area was interesting. There's a bar inside, which is great for adults, not so much for families and there's a wonderful restaurant on site with a bar so it didn't make sense to me.

My family was in town recently for a family wedding and we had two rooms. I was impressed with the cleanliness and size of the rooms. There is restaurant/bar on the premesis and a nice pool so we thought it would be perfect with the grandkids. Unfortunately, both nights at closing time we were awakened by drunk people screaming and... More

I was a bit skeptical about staying due to the Motor Inn due to it bieing located on a busy US Route 1, with a lot of tractor trailer traffic. I am a light sleeper and it doesn't take much noise to keep me awake all night. I was surprised how quiet the room was and comfortable. I was in... More

Disappointed with overall condition of the hotel. Normally we stay at the Holiday Express and expecting same quality. However cleanliness was not evident in the room , as well as the entrance and hallways. Could use some major sprucing up. Also, there was no breakfast buffet as offered not only at the Holiday Express but in other motels. Staff was... More

We came without a reservation and needed a handicap room. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable in a room that would work. Very upscale, nicely decorated, comfy beds, clean. It was very quiet even though we were on the front roadside of the building.
