Great Motel, very clean, quiet, modern, cozy and warm !!! You cant ask for a better place !!!
The outdoor nature trails on a large lot of land has nature at it's best for anytime of the year.
The Host, Lynn and Mark operate this place in full excellence with lots of care.
When we arrived Mark showed us our room, that truly was very nice for a welcome !
Price rates are reasonable .
Sleepy Time Motel is the best place I have ever stayed at, and the service is excellent !!!

Our room was incredibly clean and well maintained. Every little detail including wine glasses and a cork screw were tended to. The room was spacious and comfortable. Nothing was overlooked upon cleaning the second day of our stay. Amazing attention to our comfort and well being! I will return here again for many more quiet getaways!

We have been staying at Sleepy Time for a few years now, it is where we stay when visiting family. The rooms are always spotless and if your arrival is later in the night, our lights were always on ready to welcome us in. We bring our two young children and never fear that they will get into something dirty here. We have brought our dogs and were given old towels to use for them. The new upgrades are great. We love this motel.

Just wanted to say thank you to Mark and Lynn for making our visit to Maine so nice. We cmae to visit our 4 grandkids (ages 2,3,5, and 8) just for a few days during Christmas break from Pennsylvania. Of course being we dont get to see them much, they wanted to come to the motel with us. Unfortunately the weather didnt co-operate too well but still had fun at the motel. Mark and Lynn were very accommodating with extra towels, pillows, etc. Even gave us old towels for the kiddos shoes when we went hiking on the trails behind the motel. Would highly recommend to all visiting the area. The room was super clean and comfortable- the fridge microwave was a plus too with 4 kids.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2 which was very nice.

The motel itself is very clean and well maintained, inside and out. The furnishings are a little dated however they are in good shape. There are some nice touches with the microwave, refrigerator, etc.
The reason for the average rating is that we slept very badly because of noise from trains which ran very frequently, all night! Also we both developed heat rashes from the pillows - the rest of the bedding wasn't a problem so either the pillowcases had been washed in something different or it was the pillows themselves. We found wrapping the pillows in towels solved the problem.

Dear 4states,

Thanks for leaving your review and feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Our guests comments are very important and provide opportunities for us to improve the experience of the next guest. We're pleased you found your room to be clean and you appreciated the amenities we offer. We pride ourselves on making sure our guests get a good nights sleep so we're unhappy that you had such a difficult night.

Pan Am Railway is something we have to contend with at Sleepy Time. They run a few (3) trains per night under 10MPH on a depressed track over 100 yards away. We normally get very few negative comments about them (please see other reviews). Unfortunately you requested the room on the end nearest the track. Had we known about your sensitivity to noise we definitely would have suggested a different room.

It was also very unfortunate that you both experienced "heat rash" when using our pillows. We have always used only perfume & dye free detergents for our linens and towels. We've never run up against this problem before so are at a loss to come up with a cause for the rash.

Thanks for giving us, a small independent motel a try. We hope you might consider staying with us again if you're in our area. We'll supply the ear plugs!
