Stayed at Towne for one night on our New England road trip. Large room with two double beds. Everything was nice and clean. The staff was very helpful talking to British Airways on our missing stroller from our arrival in Boston. Short walk to restaurants.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Our large rooms with queen or double beds are popular with families and friends traveling together. We are very lucky to have great housekeepers who make sure the rooms are sparkly clean. And our location is one of the things our guests love best about Towne Motel. We're always happy to...

This was my second stay at the Towne Motel. This time I travelled with my cat and stayed in the pet friendly studio (separate entrance to studio over the garage). Once again, I was struck by how welcome I was made to feel by the owners, Katja and Siobhan, and the care that goes into their inn-keeping. The studio is...

Thank you so much! We feel lucky to hosts guests like you and Emerson. Many of our studio guests have remarked on how quiet and private the room feels, with its own entrance and interior staircase (which your Emerson so enjoyed), and no shared walls. We enjoyed adding all of the touches to make pets (and their people) feel welcome....

This place has become our go-to for whenever my boyfriend and I need to get away for a bit. We finally had time to take off for a couple days and we were not disappointed. So cozy, and an incredible deal! I LOVE the homemade goodies they leave for a light breakfast or a midnight snack! And it's great to...

My boyfriend and I decided to get out of Portland and up to the midcoast for a weekend, and the Towne Motel was naturally our first choice. We always have a great time staying here. The room is always so tidy, and the homemade breakfast basket is such a nice touch that you don't find when staying at other motels....

David, we love hosting the two of you and were glad that your favorite, room 15, was available. Nothing makes us happier to hear that Towne Motel is your first choice in Camden! It's guests like you that make innkeeping so much fun. See you this weekend!

This motel is the best ! We travel with our yellow lab, and this pet suite is more than pet friendly. It is upstairs, over a former garage, away from other guests and away from the road. It is quiet. A package of doggie treats sits on the kitchen table. A doggie bowl for water, another for food , sit...

We had no idea you were traveling 40 minutes out of your way at night to stay with us! What a compliment! Thank you so much for your kind words and all of the details you included here.

I actually spent two nights there in 2014 but never wrote a review. Because other people's reviews have helped me choose places, I thought I should do the same. No complaints about this place. Very clean, comfortable and walking distance into town. Not a full breakfast but the home baked muffins were very good. p.s. my travel date below is...

You have highlighted the things that people love about Towne Motel and we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay! You really can walk to everywhere in Camden from here. It's nice to tell guests who have spent a while in their car that they can just park and walk from here. Hope to see you next year!

I stayed here for one night to attend a conference and it was within walking distance of just about everything we needed. The staff was helpful and friendly and the room was nice and clean. No complaints for this small motel. If I'm ever back in the area, I wouldn't mind staying here at all.

Thank you for this nice and detailed review! We especially appreciate your compliments on our breakfast. Very few people expect home-baked goods or special yogurt and fruit mixes at a motel, but we like to exceed expectations! We're also glad you enjoyed the squeaky-clean-ness of our rooms.
