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

We stayed here for one night it was good, its an older motel we could hear the people next door when they moved into their room, but the rooms are all one level which is nice. The continental breakfast was great and the location is good, about five miles from the scenic town of Belfast, and close o a really... 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

Initially, I was disappointed that the Bait's Motel was full when I tried to make a reservation....but now I'm sold on the Yardarm! For a couple of dollars more, you get to have breakfast in a lovely window surrounded sunny breakfast room. The owner is very generous with her time, and relating the history of the property, and just general... More

Once again the Yardarm came through! Last minute reservation was graciously accepted during an extremely busy time of year. Have stayed here before and will always return. Nice mid-coast location and convenient to coastal venues. No frills, but provides all the necessities for a clean, safe, and quiet environment. Wonderful selection for morning meal in the breakfast room!

Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating and the room was clean and charming. The windows faced the woods in back and the front windows and door led out to the porch so there was a nice cross-breeze without the air conditioner or fan running. It was remarkably quiet for a place where the guests drive right up to the... More

Spent a couple of nights in the Yardarm Motel using it as our base to move up and down the coastline. Clean and convenient and healthy breakfasts after all the lobster! Were originally booked in another hotel that unfortunately cancelled our reservation. The Yardarm Motel did not disappoint at all.
