“Great motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Towne Motel 2/22/14. The staff were exceptionally friendly, the room was very clean and it was quiet. There were only two things that could use improvement. The pillows which were too flat, however, if I had noticed I could have asked for a second pillow so easy fix. The second was that the entrance way was poorly plowed but I understand that it has been a very very bad winter. So all in all I would recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: I don't know if any rooms are better than others. We were in room 114.

Best room I have been in . The price was even better. Didn't stay for breakfast because we were going elsewhere. Loved the spaciousness of the handicapped Room. Was also quiet. I am always Leary when going to handicapped rooms but would stay here again.

Room Tip: Good for handicapped people.

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.
