I grew up in Lincoln and, returning for the holidays, I didn't expect much by way of a hotel. The area is remote, about an hour north of Bangor, and a hotel here wouldn't have to be that great since the audience is more or less captive. So I was very pleasantly surprised by the Briarwood. We rented two adjacent... More

We stay here to get a break from our camp in summer if we need a little a/c and wifi. This year, the new management and renovations that are underway are great - the new a/c units are super. Very clean and comfortable. We found when we were having a car serviced you can walk to all the basics, even... More

I stayed here with my wife and friends last weekend and was very pleased with our visit. The rooms had wifi, microwaves, refrigerators...all the comforts of home. It's in a good area of town with a Wal-Mart, a pool hall/bar and a couple of restaurants within walking distance. Nearby the popular Lincoln Lakes region, this is a wonderful place to... More

This motel is under new owners and also renovations. Seemed clean and room was well kept. This is a motel that provides value for the room price, it is not a luxury motel. IT is close to all the in town amenities.

We stayed at the Briarwood on an ATV adventure in July. This was our third stay at Briarwood over the last 10 years. There have been gradual improvements over the years like replacing the wall AC units with mini split heat pumps. The motel had always been a clean and decent place to stay but more good things are in... More

In town for work for 3-5 months. The hotel was nice enough, but old and kind of worn, as you would expect from a small town. Sue was great, and saw to all our needs. The TV's were old, the showers kind of small, but the beds were comfortable enough. Not bad, considering, but not one of the better hotels... More

the woman who answered the phone was rude!! I was nothing but nice to her. It's too bad because after reading the other reviews, it seems to me she's going to be the reason no one will go there anymore. People want a positive environment to stay at, not a negative, rude, toxic one that this woman gives. No thanks.
