On a business trip in September 2012 while travelling on business from Montreal to Halifax, I decided to cross into the U.S and stay here as I really wanted to stay at a Hampton Inn, there weren't any convenient locations on the Canadian side of the border to choose for my stopping spot.
This is by far the best Hampton Inn location I've ever stayed in out of 20 or more cities! It has beautiful modern rooms, great comfortable beds, a nice business desk for working.
And a nice bonus, I booked one of their few smoking rooms so I didn't have to go outside late at night while I was travelling alone in an unfamiliar place. The smoking room was extremely clean, smelled very fresh as they had a great (quiet) ventilation system. As a smoker, I generally would prefer to stay at non smoking hotels, or at least in a non smoking room and then go outside. Most smoking rooms at an old dated Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn are digusting. But I have to say - despite the fact that this hotel is a few years old, it is 100% spotless and clean, fresh smelling, even in a smoking room. If you are a non smoker and hesitate that this is the only room left, I don't think you would notice a difference - unless you are very sensitive.
There is a Walmart across the street, a small shopping mall around the corner, and Houlton is only about a half hour drive away. Presque Isle is a small town, with very friendly, nice people everywhere! And only about 20 min drive from the Perth Andover, NB border too.
I'd recommend this to all of the Canadians travelling the awful LONG boring drive through NB on their way to Quebec. Don't drive the whole way there - drop in to this Hampton along the way, it's worth it! I'll be back again later this year or early next year for sure.
