“What a great place to over night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We spent a night in Belfast last week, and were so surprised to see this motel was almost completely renovated from the ground up. Our room was so clean and so new, it felt like we were the first ones that stayed here, and the king sized bed was very comfortable. The location is close to downtown and right off US Route 1 - so very easy to find, and the staff gave us a tip to eat at the Nautilus restaurant right down the block - and it was also fantastic....What a great worry free stay! We will be back. PS- the price was the best in the area.....

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the front and have an outside door, so they are all great. We stayed in number...

Going to Yankee Clipper is like walking into a completely new space. The bathroom fixtures sparkled ........ they were that new and clean.Very clever layout and use of space.
Extremely good value for the price.

Awaken at Yankee Clipper. We had booked somewhere else but something gone wrong with the room assignement so we had this two queen bedroom at Yankee Clipper with a 10$ discount. It's almost new, clean and pleasant and it could be a 4* rate but, unfortunatly the alarm has rung from 6.30 am to 7.00 am with nobody explaning what was wrong or what we were supposed to do. Eventually no sorries or explanations also at the check out. Sorry but .... No thanks!!

Stayed her over thanksgiving. The out side is just a basic looking motel. But once you get in the room they are very very modern,large room,comfortable king bed,,microwave fridge. All you need to get away and relax for awhile.Was a nice surprise.
weird thing was all the hard wood floors. Makes for a little slippery when it's raining out.
Best is dog friendly, and there is a good size front yard for them to play. The rooms are super quiet we had neighbors and you could not here a thing like other motels where the walls are thin and you here the tv or whatever. Not so here
We usually stay at there other hotel The Belfast motor inn but they are renovating,and they told us that this is open. We glad they did we are planning to return for Christmas.

There I are no kids activities or pool and that's why I put 1, there was no,Not applicable for this rating

We found the Yankee Clipper on line and decided to give it a try when touring the NE in Sep. You never know what you may actually find...the Yankee Clipper far exceeded our expectations. It was obvious that the owners had put much thought into the renovations and had done a great job! It was spotless, safe and reasonably priced!

We were heading down the coast and found this motel on tripadvisor. The outside is not fancy but very well kept. While it looked nice on the outside it is the room that is excellent. Clean, new, comfortable, and spacious. The king bed was great. The staff was great on the phone and in person. They do not have a place to eat but there are many choicse a few minutes in either direction.

We recently spent a night at this motel and found it wonderful after many very bleak stays in the run of the mill motel/hotel. Yankee Clipper is brand new, spotless and so well thought out for the traveller. A king size bed like that you would find in a luxury hotel. We also appreciated the WM and dryer provided for guests. All our washing done for a mere $3!
Don't drive past this one. The nightly rate is very reasonable too ..... have paid more for something very ordinary elsewhere.
