The first time we stayed here in 2019, we must have had a brand new room. It was clean & adorable with a nautical theme. So, when we decided to revisit Maine again this year (2020), we booked White Birches again. What a disappointment. We must have received the oldest room in the place. As soon as I walked into the bathroom, there was a spider crawling across the floor; not a big deal as they can be anywhere, however, there was a large spider web with a spider in it in the corner of the room. After cleaning that out, it appeared back the next day. The rug felt dirty & I was completely skeeved out by the sheets. Thank goodness I brought my own pillowcase. After arriving home, I realized that I left my phone charger plug in the outlet behind the night stand. I called twice & they promised to check with housekeeping but no one returned my call either time. After the third time, they said that nothing was found. I know for a fact that I left it there & I told them that. I had pulled the cord out, which came detached from the plug & then I forgot to reach behind & grab the plug. I specifically asked if housekeeping checked the outlet behind the nightstand & was told yes. I proceeded to tell him that that means that someone must have walked off with it. He could not have cared less. We love Maine & plan to visit every year but will NEVER stay here again & DO NOT recommend it!!

Thank you for your review! We are sorry you had some issues. We were not told during your stay that the room was not to your liking as we may have been able to move you to a better room, we do have some older style rooms as we are making changes all the time. As for the charger, it did take some time to look into and get in contact with the housekeeper that cleaned the room. While it may have been a oversight on our staff for not seeing it, you are right that someone may have checked in after and walked off with it and for that we are sorry. Its not a case of we do not care, but there is not much we can do about the situation after the fact. Our housekeeper said she did not remember seeing it but that doesnt mean it was not in the room. Once more we are sorry.

Thank you for your review! Thank you for such kind words, yes the soap can be a little tricky as well. We have moved to a more modern option and that is a dispenser, im not aware of any room not having one that would hold hair and body wash right in the shower and one by the sink that holds hand soap. If you could give us a call at 207-667-3621 and maybe give us a idea of what room that was. Thank you once more.

The beds were bouncy and unstable. The walls were paper thin. The WiFi was weak. The room smelled like old cigarettes. The shower head was low and pressure was weak. I wouldn’t use this motel again for a family visit.

My wife and I were doing a road trip vacation from Michigan to the East Coast including Maine. It was late when we were near Hancock and White Birches popped up in my local motel search. Very glad we chose it. Clean, newly remodeled, quiet room with all the usual amenities for a good price. Friendly staff and decent internet connection. We were pleasantly surprised enough that we would PLAN to come back here as part of our next New England vacation.
