Amesbury, Massachusetts
Reviewed 14 September 2016

The room was clean and comfortable. The view was amazing. I ate the best lobster roll in my life at Helen's restaurant, which shares the same parking lot as the Inn. I would highly recommend this location to any business traveler or family.

Clean, comfortable rooms with a relaxing view of the Machias River right behind the hotel. Rooms are well equipped with refrigerator and microwave and all the basics. Convenient to restaurant and town center. Great value.

Three of us friends needed a place to stay for a birding tour. Machias River Inn had the accommodations to fit our needs. Nothing fancy-Two beds, sleep sofa and a kitchenette. There was still enough room to move around. Check was quick and easy, pleasant staff. Our room was clean, beds comfortable. The shower was a bit tricky in adjusting...

A modest, well maintained family run inn with a tidal river in the back yard and right on Route 1. The room doors open to the parking lot for easy access and each 2-level building has a deck or patio out the slider with Adirondack chairs and picnic tables on the lawn behind the units. A pair of Bald Eagles...

Clean and comfortable with a great restaurant on site. Stayed three nights while birding in Eastport, Lubec, and the coast. View of the river from porches on the rooms is great (with lots of birds too).

Freeport, Maine
Reviewed 30 August 2016 via mobile

The river out back is nice and because this is downeast Maine the tides are probably 15-20 feet! The rooms are pretty standard motel. This hotel is relatively close to all the downeast attractions (Cutler, Lubec, Quoddy). The real bonus is Helen's restaurant across the parking lot. Good food & great pie!

I had a great stay at Machias River Inn during the blueberry festival. The suite was spacious and the deck outside the room was very relaxing for a great lobster dinner with lobsters from mother shuckers. I'd stay in that suite again.

Our weekend motorcycle trip to Machias River Inn was wonderful. The room was clean and the views of the river was relaxing. The location was convenient to travel to the Balsams Amphitheater for a concert.

The view from our room was amazing! Great friendly place to stay, we actually woke up the worker to check out early in the morning and they were still so nice. Warm and clean. Will surely return during the fall foliage season.
