#1 of 5 hotels in Auburn
Family operated cozy New England motel of six rooms located within minutes of the Maine Turnpike. Sleepy Time offers a neighborhood location on acres of green lawns backed by 100 acres of woods laced with hiking trails. Nearby is golf at Fox Ridge, swimming at Range Pond State Park and cross country skiing at Pineland. Clean, large comfortable rooms, affordable rates and friendly hospitality are what you'll find. Since we are a vintage motel, built in 1961, our rooms are not handicapped accessible. Downtown L/A is minutes away.

OMG! Outstanding! Didn’t read any reviews just was looking for a good place to stay. Happened on this small motel and could not believe the comfort! These guys really spared no expense and have the best motel I’ve stayed at in years. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were the best I’ve ever slept on. I’m gonna call them and find out where they got them. If you’re going to be in Auburn, you have to stay at this motel.

I am staying a few nights a week while I complete my student teaching in the area. It is very peaceful and I am able to complete my homework/assignments without interruptions. The room is very comfortable with dining and sitting area and even a desk. Very clean, free wifi and the owners are super> Will definitely stay again.

I hadn’t seen the message about check in time being 3-8pm, and when I pulled up at 10:30, the lights were out and the office was locked. Doorbell, nothing. I called and woke Mark up (I think), but he was so nice and came out in his bathrobe to check me in. That was such a relief, I had been driving for almost 6 hours and was exhausted, had no idea how far another hotel would be. Thank you, Mark! The room was clean, bed was comfortable, WiFi was free, and they had all the toiletries I needed to get freshened up for a cozy sleep. Would gladly return (by 8pm this time).

I found Sleepytime Motel on The TripAdvisor site, saw the great reviews and booked my room for a week-long stay to work in the area. It did not disappoint! From the easy access from the highway to the pretty landscaping, it was inviting. The couple running it are warm, diligent and invested in making your stay comfortable. The room was a generous size,equipped with a terrific bed, recliners for resting and TV-viewing, a breakfast table and chairs, even a desk for me to work from. And it was CLEAN! I will definitely plan to stay there again given the opportunity.

Your review was just what we needed at this difficult time for the lodging industry. We do our best to provide a higher level of amenities than you'd normally find in a small property like ours, it helps us stay a head above our competition. We do hope that if you find yourself in need of accommodations in Auburn again, please give us a call! Sincerely, Lynn Klinger Owner Sleepy time Motel

Stayed at the Sleepytime while attending my nephews wedding. This place is a gem with all the comforts of home. Our room had a microwave, fridge, kitchen table with chairs and a recliner along with comfortable beds. The room was also equipped with ceramic coffee mugs, glassware and plenty of plates and accessories. The bathroom was well stocked and had plenty of hot water and water pressure. This place is also one of the cleanest motels I have ever stayed in. I highly recommend Sleepytime Motel if you are ever in the Auburn Lewiston area. I will absolutely stay here again.

It was our pleasure to accommodate your family in several of our rooms for the wedding, thankfully the rain held off and it went off without a hitch. Our place works out well for a small group such as yours, rooms right next door and the front porch with benches for socializing. We hope you'll consider staying with us if you ever visit the area again. Sincerely, Mark & Lynn Klinger Owners Sleepy Time Motel
