I knew when making the reservation that we were not staying in a luxury place but I wanted something in Rumford -- not 20 miles away. I expected basic and for a basic motel, this is quite good. Importantly, it is very clean. The bedroom was fairly large and the bathroom was a reasonable size. Hot water and good water... More

I stayed at the Blue Iris for five nights during the first leg of my fall photo trip to northern New England this year. It proved to be well-situated for my daily forays into northwest Maine. The Inn sits on the northern bank of the Androscoggin River and, on two mornings, I photographed sunrise right from the motel's property. My... More

We called ahead from Lewiston and the manager kindly agreed to hold a room for us just by name. That was appreciated as was the very friendly welcome when we arrived. The motel is located in a beautiful spot overlooking the river. The room was clean and tidy rooms with plenty of hot water. There is a great family run... More

We happened upon the Blue Iris by chance. Set along the river, the view was an added benefit. Very charming with its floral wallpaper. The bed was very comfortable. No WiFi, Microwave, Refrig, or hair dryer but still a lovely place to spend the night.

The Blue Iris Motor Inn is set on the Little Androscoggin River, and the rooms that face the river all open onto a balcony that overlooks the river. It's a rural Maine motel, so the rooms are basic (bring your own hair dryer) but squeaky clean; prices are moderate. Restaurant right down the road. Should rise early, the mist on... More

Stayed here for one night to attend a wedding and it's a great place to stay if you have to be in Rumford, Maine. The wallpaper and bedspread were floral, he walls are a little thin, and the ceiling was weirdly low, but it was extremely clean and the view was beautiful and peaceful. Added star because the woman who... More

We came in town for a funeral and needed a place to stay... so, we stayed here. It was the second time on an extended stay for family; and, the owners remembered us and greeted us warmly. This is what you expect from Maine... but, in today's modern times, seldom see. If you are looking for a place in the... More

We came across this place by chance as it was getting dark and we needed a place to stay! Our room was a generous size with one of the comfiest queen beds I have ever slept in. The bathroom floor looked recently renovated and there were complimentary soaps, shampoos, and mints in the room. Flat screen TVs with lots of... More

Stayed here a couple times while in Rumford for work. The owner is nice and very helpful. The rooms are basic, and could stand a bit of modernization, but speaking as a clean freak these rooms are spotless. If you're looking for a clean, safe place to stay in Rumford, look no further.
