The room was filthy, the towels stunk, I did not want to walk across the carpet. This is the worst place to stay in Calais, and I have stayed in them all. It smelled like [--].

We recently came to Calais to visit some friends in the area and somehow missed all the bad reviews of the motel. Since all reviews that we read promised a clean stay, and many other motels in the area were booked for those nights, we decided to book both nights there. The first night at the motel we noticed a strange stain on the carpet between both beds and a bottle cap near the night stand. Since the entire motel seemed to be booked, we assumed that the housekeepers were in a hurry to get the room cleaned up and slept on the opposite bed. The following morning we left for breakfast immediately before housekeeping arrived. When we returned later that afternoon, I discovered that the duffel bag we brought with us had an unexpected surprise. There was a pair of someone else's dirty underwear in the side pocket of our bag that we left open. On top of that, the hot water in the shower worked for about 5 minutes, the soda machine by the office didn't work at all, the lamp above our bed kept making a humming noise even when it was off, and neither the stain nor the bottle cap ever left the room. I wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone.

I travel to the Downeast Maine region weekly for work and have stayed at the International Hotel numerous times. Sometimes I am there every week.

I travel and work with my dog and it is a great place to stay if you are traveling with a pet. There is a trail to walk along the river, things have always been clean, and the staff is always really nice and knowledgeable about the area.

The Riverside rooms are not available to pet owners. The rooms in the new building on the right side of the office are the best ones if you are traveling with a pet (in my opinion) as the rooms in the origional building are older.

My family and I have stayed at the International Motel numerous times in the last 6-7 years. We go up to Maine a few times a year and each time we stay there. The staff has always been so kind to us and we really haven't had much of a problem there...however, about 3 years ago, my mom found a bug in her bed and demanded to change rooms and they didn't give us any problems about the room change. Since then, we haven't seen any bugs or bloodstained sheets. None of us has ever been bitten by a bug, etc.
The last time I was there was in October '06 and everything was fine...I'm going up again this week and will pay closer attention to the bed and for bugs and will let you know if I find anything. But all in all, remember..it's a MOTEL, not a HOTEL, so it's not a lavish place or anything, but it's good for the money. If you can, I would recommend staying in the Riverview building since it's the newest building and it has a great view of the river and Canada.

We showed up without a reservation and requested and were given a non-smoking room for one night. This is an average older motel, but everything worked and we had no problems of the sort mentioned by the previous poster. The room was clean and the other guests were quiet. We had no complaints and would stay there again if we were in the area.
