“noisy building, but a clean room”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I stayed at this motel for over 2 weeks, March 2013. The room, bedding & bath very clean and housekeeping did a good job. There was plenty of parking and the grounds were clean too. The huge problem was in the Riverview building, the noisy hot water system including the base board heat ( and someone taking a shower @ 4:30 AM). The other major noise issue was the plywood flooring above me with a hollow space between the ceiling. Everything that went on in the room above was magnified, like a large drum. Normal walking, talking and moving chairs, it was aweful, no sleep :-( . The last issue was the vent system, every smell from the bathroom above seemed to decend down the vent in my bathroom, pooper.

A bit over-priced for the age and condition. But the room was clean. A welcome experience as we had been at the Motor Inn and changed our minds due the condition of the room there.

1 king size bed with a new tv, wireless internet and lots of hot water. Had a room down overlooking the waterfront, very pretty and quiet. Had to park above and walk down to it though.

The guy at the desk was friendly and struck up a nice conversation.

Would stay again and recommend.

Room Tip: Try to get a room down in back overlooking the water - large and not quite as dated.

The only good thing about this hotel was the price. It is an old 1960's hotel. The bed was awful and you can very clearly hear your neighbor. I could touch the ceiling and I am very short. The doors open into the parking lot so you have no privacy.

We stayed here on October 4th as we were tired and desperate for a place to sleep. Well the guy at the desk charged us way more than what we paid in Bangor saying that it's high season. We get to our room with all the walls done in dark brown panneling. Place needs a major facelift. The bathroom has a stand up shower in lime green and black. The sink and toilet are done in peach. Don't put any pressure on the sink as it moves away from the wall. I will say the beds were very comfortable. I guess I would have to say that if we had a choice, we would not return but if we were desperate again, we would consider it, only because of the bed.

We had a large ,nicely clean furnished room with a lovely view.. There is a walking path along the river right in front of the property. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The adjacent restaurant had great food at very affordable prices.

Room Tip: Be sure to have river view

This is a clean, quiet, basic motel only a short drive to the border. Restaurants are a few minutes away. Walking distance to the bridge into St. Stephen. Nothing fancy but quite adequate as a stopover on the way from Bangor to Saint John.
