The location was nice - on the outskirts of town. The motel was fine for the price and expectation but there were some issues. There is no attention to detail, maintenance of the property, or direction to the cleaning staff. If you need internet during your stay, don't stay.

Air conditioner in front window so couldn’t close drapes (drape wouldn’t close anyway) and still use AC. No waste basket in bathroom. No spare roll of toilet paper. Towels rough as sandpaper. Pool not open and no WIFI. Over all very disappointed. If i had had family with me I probably wouldn’t have stayed there.

It's an out dated, bare basic place

Pros: It was close to Drakes Island. The pool area was nice but i kept getting kicked out.
Cons: Hospitality. Room being ready on time. Major overhaul and modernizing of the rooms. better information as to what they offer.
Check in at 3pm,my room was not ready until 6pm. Serious disrepair of the bathroom and wiring of lighting fixtures. It's basically a bed and a bathroom with a tv with low end cable, a small frig and microwave. No coffee makers. They do offer coffee in the garage but no one told me of this.I went to get ice as they provide small ice buckets but the ice machine was dry as a bone. As i tend to stay up later, I went and sat by the pool to smoke a cigar(so as to be respectful to the other visitors), night one I was asked to move along at 10:50. Night two I was TOLD to get out of the pool area at 9:50. Again there was no notification as to when the pool actually closed. In general not visitor friendly and the rooms are less than desirable. Did I mention the train that comes through several times a night blaring it's horn?!

Old and tired keep driving

Place is stuck in 1982. Walls and doors are very thin. Just an old tired place that really needs updating and new mattress. Biggest problem was that I was double charged and could not get anyone to call me back. I finally had to call visa and dispute the charge. Pass this place many nicer places surrounding it for about the same price....

For a quicky

Location: Busy road, pubs nearby, stores, Maine coastline and other touristy traps.
Basic basic. 4 walls and a bathroom. Thin walls, like I said, I was passing thru, last minute decision, but not sorry at all I stayed there.
