Dear Djmuzx, I am so sorry your event was moved to another city. We do have a strict online reservation cancellation policy which is made very clear when our customers make their reservations. My manager does recall that you knew the policy when you called to try to cancel. As a Professional Dj, I am sure that you also have...

The title comes from a post I made on the day I stayed here. The Inn caught my eye on a drive-by and it seemed even better after I'd stopped. The room was clean and comfortable with microwave, fridge, and WiFi. It was fairly cool when I was there but an outside deck and fire pit looked like a nice...

I read all the reviews and felt pretty good about reserving a room here, but boy was that a bad decision. It's a little ways off the highway and the area around the Inn wasn't very nice. When we pulled into the parking lot the grounds seemed nice enough. The room we were given was right next door to someone...

Very comfortable room, easy access, wonderful desk staff! Great stay. I was able to get a room without a reservation, and they offered to call for food delivery as well. Waht a joy to be treated so well. Thanks!

If you are one who likes to get off the "super-slab of monotony" on occasion and have a unique and authentic experience, then we highly recommend you stay at Axell's Scandinavian Inn. Get off I-95 at exit 109 and head west up the hill - only a couple miles past "the strip" that is at the exit. You will pull...

We found this little hotel when every other place in Maine seemed to be booked, and couldn't have been more happy with it! The lady at the front desk (Doreeva - sp?) was very friendly and helpful, as were the local guests we met (hi Lou!). The room itself was very comfortable and well-stocked with homey touches; more like a...

What a nice stay. The staff is wonderful! Very friendly and accommodating. Really nice rooms and very comfortable. The bed was super comfy to get a great sleep. We had a kitchenette for cooking, coffee in the room and a table for eating as well as being able to play board games. They have a nice outdoor area for relaxing...

We travel for work and have stayed many places. Glad we found Axell's, we stayed at their Fairway Inn for a month. First I know we have not stayed anywhere else as spotless clean as our room was. Completely remodeled with full kitchen. Even baked cookies!! I cant say enough how much we enjoyed our stay, we felt at home....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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! ... more   less
