On our way South from Lubec we stayed at the Twilite Motel in Ellsworth ME based upon Trip Advisor reviews and because it seemed like a fun thing to do - another blast from the past.
The Twilite was as describe on Trip Advisor. It is on the outskirts of Ellsworth but not to far from the LL Bean Outlet, Reny's and Marden's Surplus and Salvage all places on the bucket list.
The Twilite is a 1950's vintage pull up to the door motel and everything was very clean and neat. If you must have interior corridors and encrypted room keys you should go somewhere else. The Twilite is owner operated and they live on the premises.
Their are two sets of buildings - the original and an expansion to the rear. I believe the building to the rear may have larger rooms - check this when you call to make reservations.
The only downside was that the shower which had been updated was very small - sort of like a cruise ship shower.
The breakfast was a continental breakfast off the office and there was also a patio for dining. They have Twilite coffee mugs for sale - I couldn't resist.
We would stay there again but would investigate the rear building for a larger room and shower.
We did not notice any road side noise - just a moderate thunderstorm by Southern standards.
The owner is a Green Bay Packer fan - his slippers were a clue.
