“Folks, this is Maine - lower your standards!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A family member booked the room and then I read the reviews here. Eeek!! I expected it to be really, really BAD!! Well, good news. There are new owners and they are making improvements (I bet the rates will go up though). Our room was very clean, beds were comfy, and we had a large screen TV. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Check out was at 11, and we asked for a later time and they said we could stay until noon, no extra charge. The Wi-Fi needs improvement as I could not connect from our room and had to go down to the office in order to do some work and connect to the Wi-Fi on my laptop.
Indeed, you do get what you pay for. If you want state of the art, modern, with all the luxuries, this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a clean, quiet place to sleep in a gogod sized room, with friendly staff, this is your place!
In addition, the room had a microwave, fridge, hair dryer and iron.

Rooms are clean but they are tired looking. Badly in need of an update. If booking on line make sure you take your booking info with you as the rate on line differs from the rate charged at checkin. Easy to get to and to get to the shopping district..

This place should have the recking ball taking to it. Dirty, out dated and nasty front desk. They wanted 35 more for extra person when using room saver coupon and spoke little English. Spend the money and do your home work first
