Reviewed August 5, 2013

Our family of three originally booked one night at the Yardarm Motel. My wife had stayed here with her family decades ago. The location was perfect for all the things we had planned to do on our trip that we extended our stay to three nights (before we arrived) After arriving, we enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay for three more nights. The owners are friendly and go out of their way to accomodate their guests needs. The beds are super comfortable (Important after a full day of hiking.) I highly recommend this hotel. Two thumbs up!

Quaint, although a bit run down roadside inn. Clean and comfortable. Nice lounge chairs out front. Best part was the coffee and cereal bar for breakfast (surely a hit with the kids and a nice change from stale muffins). Price a little high, but its the high season. You can also walk to things on route 1.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Clean, cozy room that was just what we needed to relax in for the night! Owners were very accommodating, leaving our room unlocked and with the lights on since we would be arriving late. Nice breakfast area with hot coffee and standard continental breakfast fare. Would not hesitate to stay here again!

We stayed here in July and it was wonderful and cozy. The room was clean, quiet, and very roomy. The window unit took a while to cool off the room, but it was a rare 90 degree day in Maine. The breakfast room was amazing. It had a lot of choices, great coffee, and it was a sunny room full of windows. Checking in was quick and easy and I would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time at this wonderful motel. The owners are very helpful, the rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the continental breakfast in their sunroom every morning makes it a true bargain .

we are a young couple and were looking for a place to stay on our trip up the maine coast. we stopped at a few other places and then the yardarm. the yardarm was perfect. vintage rooms equals character. very comfortable beds equaled a great night sleep. our room had flat screen tv, ac, big bright window, screen door perfect for fresh air. most important to me was the cleanliness. super clean, love that. all at a great rate. we enjoyed our stay thoroughly and highly recommend.

We originally planned on staying for 2 nights at the Yardarm. The excellent location, reasonable price and friendly owners made us decide to spend 2 extra nights. We received a generous discount for staying more than two days. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and we loved the screen doors. It was nice to enjoy the fresh Maine air in the late afternoon/early evening. The owner was friendly, without being overbearing. We thought it was sweet that the owner came out on the morning that we were leaving to say goodbye to us. We felt like we were leaving an old friend. I will definitely be back. I have stayed in places that cost a whole lot more that don't compare to the Yardarm. If you want a room at a reasonable price that is clean and comfortable, this is the place for you.
