“No frills motel”
Reviewed April 21, 2009

I give this place 4 stars for a no thrill cheap motel. If you want a cheap place for the night, this does the job. Owners were polite if reserved. Room was clean, came with wireless internet, TV, microwave and small fridge. For $35/night, I can't complain. Sugarloaf is 40 minutes away.

A very good clean place and comfortable to stay in. The owners
are very good and hospitable, ready to go out of their way to make you comfortable. Look forward to visit this motel again.

we were traveling through maine on the way to quebec, and based on the previous reviews, we booked here-for 55.00 the night. While the location is somewhat remote, not a destination, the owners could not have been nicer. the room was clean, the property well cared for. we needed a cab to go to dinner (we travel by motorcycle, which precludes any alcohol with dinner if we drive), and the owner gave us the name of a cab company, but said if we had any problems, he would drive us and pick us up! not a shuttle, his own vehichle! what nice people!, it is nice to support local businesses, and these people deserve the business.

Hi. We liked this place. I noticed these things: 1) clean white bedspreads, obviously freshly laundered unlike bedspreads at other places 2) hairdryer 3) a lighted nook with a bench and suitcase stands where you could set up your luggage without it making the room look untidy 4) Free coffee and granola bars (!) for breakfast 5) huge lawns with flowers and a walk down to the brook
Yes, the young couple who just bought the place were a bit informal and unprofessional --and very friendly but who cares?

Stayed here for two nights in the Fall of 2007. A 12-year-old boy checked us in. That can't be legal.
The room was full of quirks. The mattress was lopsided and horribly uncomfortable. There was no alarm clock in the room. The light in the bathroom wasn't working. We had to ask for new soap when we arrived, as maid service didn't bother to remove the dirty used soaps left behind by the previous guest. The room looked adequately clean, but I was afraid to look too closely.
We needed an ironing board in our room, but several calls to the office did not help us. When we finally went to the office to wait for someone to give us an ironing board, we received a broken board with legs that wouldn't stay propped up. We saw the manager tossed in the dumpster the next day.
When we left, the manager tried to charge us more than he originally quoted us. Beware of hidden fees.
The price seemed like a bargain from afar, but I would not stay here again.

I have stayed at the Farmington Motel eleven times in the past year while attending courses at the University. Every time, the room was very clean, basic, comfortable, and well maintained. The owners are especially friendly and accommodating. I recommend this motel very highly.
