This was a very cute and inexpensive stop on our way up to Bar Harbor. There is no lobby, you check in at the host stand of the attached restaurant. The room was clean but it did smell a little of mildew. After we ran the A/C the smell disipated and it was very comfortable from there. We got "upgraded"...

We stayed in a double room next to to a busy rd.The room was immaculate, the linen high end and the bed very comfortable. Water pressure was great and as hot as you could want. What a welcomed retreat after some hard days of traveling! No WiFi but a great price and everything we truly needed!

The Room was very clean, the bed was comfy, and there is a coffee pot in the room, that's all we needed. It was pricy but we were tired and had no other choice. All in all it was worth the trip down memory lane to a time long ago.

We wanted to experience some local color on our Maine vacation and the name made me giggle so I took a chance based on the positive reviews here. I'm SO glad I did! The room (including the bathroom) was immaculate. The hardwood floors and nice furniture were a unexpected plus in an economy motel but we were really surprised to...

I wanted to stay here mainly for the great play on words and ended up having a beautiful room to stay in! Very clean and simple nice decor. The only drawback I could see is that you have to be there by 8 p.m. to check-in. I had a relaxing night there and would definitely stay there again. There is...

Was in town for a weekend artshow and just wanted a nice clean room to unwind. The room was furnished with beautiful furniture, and a very comfortable bed. Loved the extra plush towels. They also have good taste in art. Noticed some of my work hanging in their restaurant. Despite being on a busy street, my room remained quiet.

We stayed in a deluxe King room which had a fridge and coffee maker, TV, and alarm clock. (The standard rooms do not have the fridge and coffeemaker and are a bit smaller.) All the rooms at this motel have been renovated. The one we were in was renovated three years ago and still looks great. The hardwood floors have...

I just got home from a two night stay with friends at the Baits Motel. We were in Searsport for a wedding and booked a room at Baits because the hotel the rest of the wedding party was staying at was booked. We were bummed at first, but after calling around to various other motels in the area, the Baits...

A motel nearby recommended a stay here because of an overbooking situation. I understand some renovation has occurred in this motel recently, and there may be other rooms that have received attention, but the one occupied was awful. The bedspread was pilled and dirty, the door has glass panes and the curtain wasn't opaque. The bathroom was extremely small -...
