This motel is owned by a family that has been in the hotel business for three generations now. They are well organized, offer complete services, and keep the place immaculately clean. We have been going there and to their other establishments for more than twenty years now, and do not need to try any other place when in need for...

Motels like this define America. They define unforgettable experiences. They define the fun of road trips and new frontiers. I don't exactly know the "Scandinavian" aspect of this motel, but the service is like visiting family; the rooms are mini kitchenettes with great beds; the location is peaceful (aside from being on a busy road), and I didn't want to...

Sheila Chief cook and bottle washer..LOL P.S. My husband was born and raised in Sweden and that's how the "Scandinavian Inn" came to be! Well, that and Ikea!! Thanks again!!!

We stayed at the Fairview which is part of the Scandinavian Inn. My husband was working in Maine and we needed a place that was reasonably priced, had a kitchenette and would accept our dogs. We found all of that at the Fairview. Friendly accommodating owners, the grounds are very well kept and plenty of room for dog walking. Our...

My two dogs and I had the pleasure of staying at Axells Scandinavian Inn for 3 months this past summer. My room was very clean and cozy and just right for me. I immediately felt at home!

Could not be happier! Being a new Mainer, I am thrilled with the service at Fairview and Scandinavian Inn. Their service makes my life much easier. All I had to do was move a few personal items. As a Traveling Nurse, Darinda, the manager of both Inns, made my transition very easy and even helped quell any fears I had....

see Headeryankee's review. right on though I didn't get a 10% discount! Their welcome to pets is outstanding. Appears there are several folks staying for a while but I felt safe comfortable and th kitchenette meant I didn't have to go out to eat. Good groceries nearby. very good experience. NICE manager.

We checked in around 6:00 and were given a choice of rooms--each slightly different. Appreciated the lovely lawn. I loved seeing extra pillows on the king bed, but when I lay down, I discovered that the pillow I had chosen was old & smelled of smoke, even though the pillowcase was clean. Another pillow was clean inside and out. Staff...

We were doing an adventure drive through Maine and after crossing the state, we had no place to lay our heads. We were traveling with our well behaved golden retriever, Cloverbelle. We happened upon the listing for Axell's Scandinavian Inn and they took our reservation after 6:00 PM. They said no problem to Clover which was refreshing! We arrived and...

Thank you so much for your review! We were very busy when the pipeline was being installed in the area. The pipe liners were all a wonderfully respectful group and we enjoyed you all being here! Thank you again for staying with us and hope you all return when back in this area!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous! ... more   less
