Augusta, Maine
Reviewed 13 September 2015

We stayed at the Eastland Motel. Checked trip advisor first. It was correct, if you want a clean room with no frills this is the place to stay. Very basic but clean. It was quiet as it is slightly away from town. When we were there the ice machine was broken so if you need ice check that first.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review Lee. We appreciate your business and you staying with us gets us one step closer to purchasing an ice machine for our guests! After reading your comment, we now stock bags of ice in our refrigerator in case the ice machine there breaks down again! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Room was clean; bed was very comfortable. Basic breakfast included fresh-baked muffins and yogurt. The owners were very pleasant and welcoming, including Max the dog. Not far from West Quoddy lighthouse and downtown Lubec. Would stay again.

Let's see, where to start. This is our 5th year (7th visit) staying here and have never been disappointed with the facilities or accommodations. This is a family owned/operated small town motel, and should be rated based on similar facilities in the same category. Based on that, they are much better than similar places we have stayed, thus my 5-Star...

The hotel owners were friendly and the rooms are basic clean rooms with everything you need. The best part about the stay was the breakfast, basic yogurt & coffee but also freshly baked various berry muffins. It was a good place to explore the area. There were a few good seafood restaurants back in town but nothing within walking distance....

Hi James, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the effort!

It started wrong with a cool greeting by the host who was feeling busy with another couple checking in and a phone call. He couldn't give a restaurant recommendation except to throw a name out.

Sorry you were disappointed. We try to make everyone happy, but as life would have it, it is sometimes hard to do. Glen answers questions as people arrive... first come, first serve. He would have spent some quality time with you answering all of your questions, had you just been patient. I'm sorry it set the tone for your stay....

We just stopped by to see if they had a room available. We were greeted by the friendliest dog, he enjoyed being petted. The girl that checked us in was very good. Room was simple yet had everything we needed. Breakfast was homemade muffins & fruit. I would stay there again.

This was a nice place to stay while visiting the eastern most point in the U.S.. We enjoyed the muffins, fruit and coffee! It was also helpful to have a fridge in the room. We did have a room with the shag carpet but it looks like it was one of the last rooms with it. The room was clean!...

Mom with 2 Kiddos! Thanks for taking the time to write a review, they are all appreciated. The girls work hard to make sure all rooms are immaculate and we are lucky to have them. The orange shag? Not so lucky to have that, but we try to replace two a year. In the meantime, Glen steam cleans them weekly,

Oops. This question is actually an answer from the owner to previous question from someone who wanted to know if there would be room for a walk-in during the month of August.

Sorry for the delayed response! We just received the question alert.

  For future reference, it is always preferred that a reservation be made during off-season months, however, more often than not, you will be able to have a bed to sleep in. In the winter months, we shut down our large wing so we only have eight rooms open and we usually are doing renovations on at least one of those.

I hope as you passed through Lubec, you found a warm place to stay! Sorry again for the late response.

Good morning Jess... the charge for the room is comparable to other motels in the county, and actually cheaper than most. And, yes, you are certainly right... the changes, including carpet replacement, are covered by the room cost. That is how a business should operate. As a result of the continual repairs and updates, we are far from a "dive motel" and when you were here, you spoke of how nice the place is and how well your kids were treated. If there was a party here, you should have notified us immediately. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a clean and quiet place to stay. FYI- we close the office down at 9:00 pm and are in bed by 9:05 pm. .... no parties here!
