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.

I was in the area to meet two friends who were walking The Appalachian Trail and spent three nights here . The rooms were very clean and comfortable . Many of the rooms have a view of... More

The lodging in Rumford has a poor reputation and so our experience at the Blue Iris was a pleasant surprise. The owner, at the front desk, was welcoming and informative. Our room was very clean and well kept. The view of the frozen Androscogen River was beautiful. Despite our having a corner room, and the place being filled, it was... More

Three of us stayed for 2 nights(Nov.2014). The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The two double beds were comfortable.The room wasn't big,but certainly big enough.The owner was very pleasant and friendly. There is a very nice restaurant just down the street. If there was a drawback,it was not having a little refrigerator. Not such a big deal in November,but... More

On the way from Acadia Island to Montreal, we stopped at this motel. It was a surprise! A warm welcome by the owner, very clean and spacious room and our room was just completely refurbished. From the back of the rooms you have a nice view on some mountains and a river. If you are ever passing by and are... More
