I stayed here for two weeks with a 2 day break in the middle. They kept my same room for me and at the beginning of BOTH stays, I was met with a thank you/welcome hand written note. Such a lovely touch! The room was spotless and everything was in working order. Looks like the rooms have been renovated recently because the flooring and furniture were modern and fresh. The room has a fridge and a Keurig coffee maker. You'll enjoy the HEATED bathroom floor! That felt great and is an amenity you rarely find. The rooms have punch code locks and the door is programed with a unique number for you so you can go right in when you arrive; they contact you via text to let you know your room number and your access code. I was also text a couple of times to make sure my stay was nice or to ask if I needed anything. I only have one suggestion: the heat cannot be turned up higher than 72. I keep my home at 70 and feel fine but 72 felt chilly to me here. I would have liked to turn it up a little more. Besides that one thing, I had a tremendous stay and I would come back in a heartbeat!

The Margaretta Inn is wonderful. The rooms are impeccably clean. This is a family run motel and the prices are so reasonable. It's nice to see the old mom and pop places still around. The hosts really pay attention to detail. A thank you note awaits you in the room and a thank you text after your departure. They are a delight to talk to. We would recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area. Thank you again for a great stay. The personal touches mean so much.

We took a long drive up the New England coastline and Machias was on our list to stop by. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and updated these rooms are, the heated bathrooms floors were a very nice surprise. The managers were great and answered all our questions as we had them. Brecken helped us when we checked in and showed us to our room and provided the SUPER convenient key code to our room (we always misplace our keys). Rylee helped us with some quick tips on where to go for the couple hours we had to spare in the area and even helped my husband fix his smartphone. We loved to hear from Brecken that they run another business, so nice to see these young people taking these big steps in their life. Their smiles, attitudes, and eagerness to help is what I will remember from our trip to Machias, Maine.

There are very few lodging facilities in this part of the state and getting a government rate is difficult. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. The code entry is convenient when showing up when the office is not open.
