“Good Value”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

We stayed here in a motel room for 2 nights (weekend) in September. The rooms was on the small smide (especially the bathroom), but it was very clean. The bed was also pretty comfy. We could hear the traffic from route 1, but it did die down late at night. We also ran the fan (on the A/C unit) and that drowned out any remaining noise. The coffee and muffins in the morning were a nice touch - no need to run out to breakfast so quickly. We liked the location - it's ~30 minutes from Unity College where my son is a student, and close to downtown Belfast/harbor. Price was very reasonable. We were very satisfied.

We do have one motel room which has a full bathroom with a tub/shower. Our cottages are larger, most with full baths. Our motel is perpendicular to Route 1. The rooms further from the road will have less road noise. As we all have different noise tolerance levels, we have an aerial view picture on the floorplans page of our Seascape Motel website so you can select your room or cottage location to satisfy your needs. We try to maintain moderate, reasonable rates. Online bookings have become quite costly, as we all are shifting from phoning in a reservation to simply booking online. Beginning September 2012, we will be offering substantial discounts off the online rates. For example, a weekday September 2012 nightly rate for a motel room of $109.00 online, would only be $79.00 when booked by phone! And the best part is that you will be dealing directly with us. We will know your specific needs, and you will get all the correct details about your accommodations. In 2011, we upgraded our breakfast offerings. We no longer use conventional baked goods from big box stores. We now offer complimentary muffins baked for us by a local bakery, which uses many local ingredients, organic or responsibly grown fruits, free-range eggs, organic soy milk and local butter, as an example. We feel better offering you a wholesome, quality product, we are sure you will enjoy. We also offer great coffee roasted locally and harvested responsibly.

The room at the Seascape was immaculate but road noise kept us from sleeping soundly. The motel was a good value but the rooms were small and the bed hard.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far from the road as possible.

We continue our efforts to provide clean and comfortable accommodations. Our motel was built in the 1950’s, and has had periodic renovations and improvements. The rooms are the original size. In those days, extra space was a luxury, and people had a slightly narrower girth than we do now. We perceive size and space differently now, and we each have our own comfort zone within our space. Our cottages are much larger than the motel rooms, and for some, make all the difference in their stay. We have various bed types throughout our facility. Some beds are more firm than others. None of them are poor quality. We can try to accommodate your needs regarding bed firmness when asked. Our motel is perpendicular to Route 1. The rooms further from the road will have less noise. Noise tolerance is subjective. Many guests are not bothered by hearing some traffic, and enjoy the nice view of Penobscot Bay from the room closest to the road. We have an aerial view picture on the floorplans page of our Seascape Motel website so you can select your room or cottage location to satisfy your needs. We try to maintain moderate, reasonable rates. Online bookings have become quite costly, as we all are shifting from phoning in a reservation vs. simply booking online.

My 2 granddaughters and I went for a weekend escape. We loved the cabin we stayed in and having a kitchenette was a plus with 2 preteens. The grounds were immaculate. The pool and heated jacuzzi was a big hit. The cabin was very neat. We would definitely stay there again.

The cottage was terrific; comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchenette. The owner lives on site and it shows. Everything was in immaculate condition.

WE stayed at the Seascape Motel and Cottages and the first thing I noticed when entering the duplex cottage was that there was hair in the bathtub from previous guests. One thing I do NOT like is sloppy housekeeping. It really gave me "the creeps." Then, we had a LOT of trouble getting the wireless internet to work. The bed was comfortable, however. I expressly asked the owner about whether or not one could hear through the walls, since it was a "duplex cottage" (not my first choice) and he said "no, I built these myself." We could hear the couple next door as if they were right in the room with us. We kept on the fan on the A/C just to not hear them, but we still did!! Needless to say, we won't stay here again!

Thank you for commenting about your stay at the Seascape. We are sorry you did not have a good experience like most of our previous guests as attested by many of the positive reviews about us. We value your input. Cleanliness is very important to us, and we don’t expect our guests to experience anything out of place in their accommodations. So, we will continue to strive for excellence in our cleaning. I apologize for the trouble you had connecting to the internet while you were here. We have installed NEW Wireless Internet access equipment as of July 25, 2011. We are confident this highly technical lodging amenity will satisfy all of our future guests’ wireless internet needs. A few years ago we did a complete renovation of your duplex cottage, which included a double insulated sound limiting wall construction, and the interior connecting door is actually three, solid panel doors. As with any shared wall in a lodging facility, some sound will get through the walls regardless of the sound limiting efforts. Although we did not have a cottage available, one of our individual cottages would have been better for you.

Our flight into Portland was hours late and I called the manager of Seascape to advise him that we would be very late coming in. He said he would leave the key in the room and the lights on and told me the number of the cottage.

What a wonderful sight, on a cold, wet night after all day in the air or sitting in an airport, to find the lights on and to open up the door to scrubbed clean inviting cottage. The linens on the beds were crisp and clean and we crashed and slept like babies.

We were on our way up the coast and could only spend that one night. We would have loved to stay longer. When we go back up that way - we will stay there again.

This property is meticulously maintained, inside and outside, which made me feel confident. Our room had 2 queen beds each with 4 pillows! The little kitchen even had a tea kettle and wine glasses; the owners have gone to every end to assure our comfort. Although it is on Rte 3, it is set off the road a bit and we did not have a problem with road noise
