Yankee Clipper Motel

Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is a very clean and modern motel. The staff is friendly. The rooms look just like the photos on the website. We only stayed for 1 night as a stopover to Bar Harbor but would have been happy to stay longer. We stayed at a big hotel chain the previous night while in Mystic CT and the room wasn't horrible but it wasn't good either. The Yankee Clipper Motel raises the bar!

Let me confess that I like luxury and pretty things. I have not stayed in a motel since I was in college. However, Maine seems like a good place to try motels. There are certainly many to choose from. So this trip was less about luxury and pretty things and saving some money while maintaining a certain level of creature comforts. Liked the linens, the refrigerator, and the decor was actually pretty nice. Front office was ok. No loudness outside and other guests seemed civilized. Might do this again.

Stopped there on our first night in the area. Last time we were in Belfast, the motel was being renovated. OMG, what a nice comfortable place. All brand new beds, AC machine and laminated floors. No bad smelling and dirty carpets for a change. We stayed 3 nights and I think we could have stayed longer. I found the place to stay for my next vacations. No pool but a clean and quiet place despite the traffic. Had a king bed that was so comfortable, it was almost sad to get up in the morning.

Motel has been renovated and looks new. Loved the wood laminate floors and the cleanliness. I was surprised we heard no traffic noise within the room. Beds are firmer than I like but I still had a great night's sleep. Luke checked us in and was very accomodatong and pleasant. Good value. I'd stay again.

We only spent one night in Belfast and were so pleased to find the Yankee Clipper Motel! Downtown Belfast is a short drive down the road and there is a great Lobster Pound restaurant across the street. The Motel was remodeled in 2012 and is tastefully decorated and extremely clean. The floors are laminate wood and spotless, no musty carpets. Oh, did I mention it was only around $100 for the night? We'll definitely stay again if we're in the area.

The Yankee Clipper is a completely renovated roadside motel on Hwy 1 (Searsport Avenue) on the outskirts of Belfast. Downtown Belfast is only 5 minutes away, across the bridge. Our room was large, immaculately clean with a comfortable King bed. We liked the hardwood floors and the nice decor. On the con side, we were surprised that the rooms are NOT equipped with landline telephones. There isn't a fitness centre nor a business centre but I guess this is a motel and not a hotel. The large front window had a drape but also needs a sheer for privacy. We paid $109 per night which is a good rate in Belfast. Most of the closeby hotels and inns were completely sold out on the nights we were there. Oh, go down the lane directly across from the motel and you will find the Lobster Pound, a hidden gem of a place for seafood served informally on picnic tables.

Install that sheer on the window and put in a landline telephone and we will definitely come back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same - very large and comfortable. The small reception area is located in the...

I have stayed at the Yankee Clipper several times, including this summer in June and August. It is clean, looks like new and is a good value for Belfast hotels. I usually stay at hotels such as the Hampton Inn and the rooms at the Yankee Clipper are as nice, but newer since it reopened the summer of 2012 after a remodel. Great location across from Young's Lobster Pound and right down the street from Nautilus restaurant, both of which rock.
