The Yardarm was very comfortable and clean for a reasonably priced motel. The owner was very friendly, and there was a nice breakfast room attached to the main building. It is set back from the road, and therefore very little road noise. There is much to do along route 1 in Maine! We would definitely stay there again.

Friendly & helpful folks, vintage but clean room, our bathroom door wouldn't stay closed but that was more a nuisance than a problem, complimentary breakfast included pastries, English muffins, oatmeal (typical continental breakfast). Most important the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Would recommend or would stay again if the need arose.

Quiet, locally owned motel in Searsport. Clean rooms, kind service. In the room there is a history of the house that we appreciated, made us feel the people who were here before us. Would certainly recommend it.

This is a small motel where the owners have tried to make it a pleasing place.. The room was clean and and everything worked well, including the wifi. You can park in front of your room but know the parking area is loose gravel. Screening would have worked better.. Breakfast is simple but adequate and the room spotless.

Sorry to say our experience was not as expected. Owners were very respectful but room was not good. Heater stopped door locked us in! Immediately asked for refund and owners gave without argument! Nice people wrong room! Took couple of minutes for water to run hot. Our travel mates had same issues.

Loved my stay at the Yardarm. First night I stayed in a double bed room #2. No fridge, microwave. Room was small but bed was comfortable & I was tired so it served its purpose. Next two nights I stayed in room #19. Has king bed with memory foam pad, super comfortable. Huge room w/ shower, fridge, microwave, sitting area... More

So refreshing to stay at a family owned and operated small drive up motel. We love this style of motel. The owner and wife were very helpful in recommending places to see during our travels in Maine. He also sent us to a very nice pub in town. We had a very nice, comfortable and clean room. It was an... More

The room was great. The outside was nice, but nothing to make you say wow. But the room was better then we expected. It was clean room, it appeared it might have been upgraded recently. The bed and pillows feels great. Thanks again.

We were looking all up the coast for motels along rt 1. We finally settled on the Yardam on whim..and we're so glad we did. We arrived late and the lovely owner was so polite and kind, and above and beyond friendly. She promptly got our key, gave us the wifi info, showed us to our room, explained the breakfast... More
