“Staff just didn't care”
Reviewed December 5, 2007

Was given a room when I first checked in, when I went into the room there were bags of garbage on the floor. Bed appeared made, but when I pulled the covers back there was dried blood on pillow case. When I went back to desk clerk she gave me another key and said "see if this ones ok." as if it were me being picky.
Shower was dirty, bedspread filthy, the room was cold. I have never seen sheets as thin and worn as the ones in the room.
Unfortunately its the only place in town.
Breakfast was pathetic, twinkies and doughnuts wrapped in plastic wrap.
Staff acted like they could care less about customers.

Stayed here because a friend was getting married and it was the only place open in town to stay. Definitely would not stay here again. Room was filthy, with mildew in the shower and ripped shower curtain. Bedspreads were stained, a used fly swatter was stored in with the extra blankets. Staff was rude, when we asked if we could leave a letter to go in their outgoing mail we were told they didn't have mail service! "Breakfast" items were frozen, pre-wrapped Little Debbie type things. Found cockroaches in the parking lot. Would never, ever stay there again.

Immaculate motel on the Canadian border in Fort Kent, Maine. The rooms were so clean with great furnishings, curtains, carpet, etc. The breakfast was a continental plus breakfast with everything individually wrapped. The front desk staff went out of their way to answer questions and be helpful. The motel was back off the road and very quiet and you could walk to good restaurants in the downtown area. In 10 days in Maine this was our best motel.
