“Just what we were looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We were in town celebrating a birthday. Had stayed here once before and had a nice stay. Great price, clean room, convienent location. Yes, the room was small and the showerhead a tad low, but given the fact that we spent all of 10 hrs in the room, it was perfect and affordable. Staff was very nice. Would absolutely stay again

The room was Clean, but thats about it! Well decent tv also! The sheets on the beds were fuzzyballed and uncomfortable. Broken refrigerator, broken shower drain. Called the front desk, to ask about getting a different fridge- the woman and daughter were very friendly. the man that managed the place, but later claimed to own it when I asked to speak to the owner, was rude, screamed at me, made me feel very uncomfortable. Actually came to our room and raised his voice at me, claiming because i asked for a couple extra towels and a fridge that worked i was taking advantage of him....I am not sure how or why he feels that way but my family asking for normal accomodations that we paid for. We left that place immediately and moved to the comfort inn down the road, much more professional, much nicer, just better all around.

Clean, comfortable and affordable. We stayed two nights while skiing in the area. Good coffee and Continental Breakfast is a bonus! Owner is accommodating and friendly. Great motel for those seeking cozy and unique motel vs "usual chain type". Nice TV.

Small, clean room with cool retro shower, but the bed was horribly uncomfortable and there was no one around to serve the advertised continental breakfast- we had to leave @ 7am, which is brunch time in Maine!

I've rated this motel a 5, not because it may or may not have an alarm clock (which someone mentioned in a bad review was missing), or brand new Hilton-style decor, but because I think it is a little jewel of kindness and courtesy, and has more than adequate accomodations in cozy rooms with nice TV's, is clean and comfortable---and quiet and reasonably priced. Sure, it has plastic cups and doesn't have an array of hair and body products, but for cozy, reasonable motels in Maine, it is at the top of my list, hands down. I like the people who own and run this place, and that's hard to say about 95% of other accomodations.

Room Tip: I haven't had a bad room, although the single queens are cozy, not expansive.

This is our second time staying at the Mount Blue Motel while celebrating Chester Greenwood day in Farmington. The hotel looks like your typical mom and pop hotel when you pull up but don't let the look fool you, this is a pretty nice hotel and a great value for the price. We had a queen bed room that looked freshly renovated with a wonderful memory foam mattress, the rooms are not fancy so don't expect 5 star accomidations with room service and an in room jacuzzi. They are nice though, very quaint with some neat modern touches such as a refrigerator that looks like a nightstand.

I recently went up and stayed at the Mt Blue Motel on a business trip. Great people, very accommodating, quiet and clean. Bed was comfy and cable and internet access was solid. Very convenient to Farmington area. Would definitely recommend it!
