“Older but OK”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed one night while traveling through Maine. Although it was probably new 40 years ago, it is extremely clean and everything worked the way it should, with the exception of the deadbolt lock. The owner made a note when we checked out and promised it would be fixed. Although the breakfast looked good, we opted to visit "The Bankery", the local bakery, located in an old bank building. It's filled with wonderful goodies. If we return to Skowhegan, we'll stay at the Towne again.

We stayed in the Towne Motel on our way back from Canada and were not disappointed. The Motel has everything you need, even a very nice and clean outdoor pool although we didn't get to try it. The room was very clean and spacious. The owners were very friendly and gave us excellent recommendations for bars and restaurants. The little town of Skowhegan was a very nice discovery and definitively worth a visit.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was a continental breakfast with boiled eggs, toast and bagels. There was strawberry and blackberry jam, and the usual dry cereal. There was orange juice, coffee and bananas. The motel has a large outdoor pool.

Nice hometown hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. More like family if staying for any number of days. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Variety of breakfast items, hot coffee/tea in lobby. Large pool. Reasonable prices and good location.

Pretty reasonable hotel. Wifi is at a premium in Skowhegan, so any place that actually provides enough bandwidth to send and receive emails is pretty good in my book. Room and bed were tired and linens were at the low end of standard. But the rate was at the low end of standard too. And you can walk to the fairgrounds from there - normally I would get a car to go to Skowhegan but I didn't need one this time.

We stayed here for a night on our way to New Brunswick from central Canada. It is an older motel but everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. Front desk was friendly and helpful and Wi-Fi was quick and reliable. The self-serve breakfast in the morning was good. We were surprised by their big outdoor pool. It was exceptionally clean and we were the only ones using it when we were there. They also have really good loungers and chairs and tables around the pool. My only complaint was that the old window air conditioner was noisy and we had to turn it off but luckily it wasn't an oppressively hot night. They are conveniently located to decent restaurants.

The Towne Motel is a great place to stay in Skowhegan. We've been here the past 5 summers and have had excellent service. The owners are proud of their facility and keep after it. The rooms are clean and house keeping really does clean daily. Front desk is friendly and informed about places to eat and is helpful with directions. We will be back again.
