Very nice rooms, clean and comfortable. The owners are great and the view is awesome. Close to Bangor and about an hour from Acadia National Park. Great hotel for the price. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to retuning in the future! Thanks Jayne Zeitlin!

A delightful place. It is in the middle of a residential district . We had our doubts when we first saw it but once inside it is delightful. Large room with two burner stove and a kitchen sink. Both spotlessly clean. There is a little fridge and microwave and table and chairs. Beds very comfy and all is very clean.... More

The owner/manager was friendly & accommodating but the place looks a little rough. It would appear to me that they are catering to the workmen/workcrew trade and it seems like there is a lot of wear & tear on the facility. Nothing to look at from the outside but the room was clean and large, somewhat mis-matched in furnishings -... More

Please looks a bit rough on the outside and it would work wonders if a leaf blower was used on the parking lot and some flowering hanging plants were put on the building. t The stairwells are on the rough looking side too and could stand fresh paint and carpet. Our room was huge and immaculate with a small kitchenette... More

Since my first review, I've been back four more times while visiting family near UMaine. You will not find a better value in the area, nor will you find a nicer and more attentive staff. Milford Motel is truly a hidden gem among the chain hotels that are your option. Thank you!!

Was dated but very clean. Friendly, welcoming people. Quiet. They called after we had checked into our room to make sure everything was okay. Right on the river, beautiful morning view. Nice place to stay for our visit to U of Maine. Slept well.

Pleasant innkeepers, spotlessly clean, nice river view, I will only stay here when I am in the UMO area! Gave us a lovely upgrade to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Thank you! Loved the river view and the pine tree that had woodpecker activity on it!

Nice river views, very clean and comfortable motel. The owner was very nice and accommodating. We were lucky enough to arrive during a fireworks display from the local Indian tribe. I would stay here again on the way north through Maine.

Have stayed here twice while visiting family. Affordable, clean, friendly, quiet and convenient. Don't judge this book by its cover. Excellent place to stay and have as a base to day trip travel around Bangor, Acadia, UMaine. Kitchen area well stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, etc. so eating in as a true option. Great showers!
