We'v walking distance from the famous Maine Diner.e stayed in the tiny old-fashioned cabins, which may have old refrigerators, too-soft beds. But, they back on the nature reserve entrance. Once our cabin had a fridge leak, and the owner found us a better room. There may be variety of room issues because of very old cabins, newer motel, and newest... More

On arriving in our room we found the fridge did not work. We were given the keys to 3 other rooms & told to check which had a working fridge & to move to that room, which we did. Apparently we made a bad choice as when we woke up the next morning there was a wasp in the room.... More

Had an awesome experience, affordable prices, Location is perfect and a very friendly staff. The rooms were very clean and the thing I liked the most was the outdoor pool. All the beaches are pretty much in range.

The pool water was dark green. The cable didn't work in one of our rooms. Toilet wouldn't flush. half of the outlets didn't work. The staff is less then helpful, they were down rite rude. I would recommend if you are looking at staying here, do yourself a HUGE favor and don't.

I just stayed here last week for 2 nights and the review was never posted. I'm starting to wonder it there is some prejudice against this place. I stayed in a cabin/cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. There was a mini fridge and microwave, both of which worked fine and were very clean. The air conditioning worked OK, and... More

Okay, this was not a great high end hotel. But we didn't spend a lot of time inside the room. First, the bed was very comfortable. The surroundings were quiet. The room was clean. We kept the "do not disturb" door hanger out for our whole stay (3 nights) and just had to swap our dirty towels for clean ones... More

No, this hotel is anything but glamourous. Yes, the service was pretty awful. However, we knew, and you should know what you're getting yourself into. We stayed this past weekend for one night, and it was fine. It is the peak of August, the weather is beautiful, and I don't think I saw anything but "No Vacancy" signs in the... More
