Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous!

After a full day of traveling in the rain, we were more than happy to find the Scandinavian Inn. We were unsure as to what we would find once we saw the room but we were so pleasantly surprised. The room was beyond clean and we could really tell that the owners took pride in this establishment by the little touches that made us feel welcome. The comfortable room included a fully stocked kitchenette, had air conditioning that worked well, and was tastefully decorated. A good night's stay.

Totally surprised!!!! An older motel, very well kept and cleaner than some of the big chain hotels we have been in. Water in the fridge, small bottle of wine, 2 wine glasses -- nice small touched that show they care about their customers.The gentleman that checked us in even had recommendations for dinner plus information for our trip to Lubec, Maine printed out when we arrived. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!!!

We stayed here last night in room 104. Great room except for the mice/rats or whatever was crawling through our walls. Come to find out that they weren't just running through the walls, they ate a bag of animal crackers that were on the floor next to our bed. We were disgusted.

i was attending a Convention in nearby Augusta, ME. I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel and this one had a price in my range of $70 to $80. Originally I was booked into another of their properties a 1/2 mile away, but they surprised me with a excellent room that had many great features. It had a small kitchenette with all the plates and utensils need to stay a few days. It was clean, away from the road and had a pool. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms face the highway. It is a old style motel, but has been greatly upgraded.
