We stayed one night in this very clean and friendly motel. A short drive from downtown Belfast and the freeway. Convenient location for anyone traveling along the coast. They are also pet friendly. We had to make a change in our reservation and the staff responded very quickly and helpfully by email. Recommended!

The owners are very friendly, and the rooms are clean and spacious. There is even a microwave and refrigerator. We needed a slightly later departure time, and that was no problem. The only drawback was the road noise. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

I love the retro feel....it's like coming home when you come back to the room each evening after a fun day in the Belfast area. Peter, the owner, could not be more helpful. Loved the muffins and Keurig coffee! Our room was clean and spacious. Couple of hints: turn the refrig to "1" so your Coke won't freeze, sit on...

Open since 1957 but carefully updated to preserve the 50's character. Exceptionally clean (probably one of the cleanest places we've stayed in a long while). Very helpful, friendly staff. Muffins in the morning and Keurig coffee in the lobby all day are a very nice touch. Housekeeping was perfect. Add very reasonable rates and it was perfect. We will definitely...

This is a 1950's style Motel, it is very clean and comfortable. The front desk is very helpful, and the coffee and muffins in the morning are excellent. This motel is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. the prices are very reasonable

Close to attractions, with a fridge and microwave, an excellent place to call home base for your mid coast Maine travels. Peter is a friendly host, and coffee in the lobby is a bonus. Air conditioning in the rooms is nice this time of year. This will be our Belfast area accommodation from now on.

For the last couple of years, my sister and I have driven to Maine from Oklahoma. Both trips we have stayed in the town we grew up in. Belfast. Both years we stayed at the Gull for several nights.
