I've stayed here twice recently in connection with a trip for an outpatient medical procedure in Presque Isle. I had stayed here years before and I knew where it was, etc. I was pleasantly surprised that it had changed hands and is nicer than before. It is now owned by a mature couple from the area who are very nice... More

Me and my wife contacted Northern Lights Motel 9 months in advance to make a reservation and spoke to the owner, Marsha Martin about our requirements for our satisfaction. We were not disappointed as we found our room to be very clean and comfortable. It was understood that the motel is not a modern motel but reflected a time of... More

During the Annual Acadian festival In August 2014, hotel room were almost nonexistent in Northern Maine. My wife and I used Trip Advisor to review the few motels. Northern Lights was described by reviewers as in a turn-around by new owners but clean and friendly. We booked a room for 1 night. It was awful. The carpet was dirty, ugly... More

I attended a conference at one of the larger Hotels/Inns in town; but, I did not want to stay there. Branching out to this little motel completely satisfied my needs and budget. AND I am fussy. No curb appeal so I was a little hesitant. I was greatly relieved to find the owner was a warm, well groomed, immaculate house-keeper.... More

I stayed at this hotel in February on a college visit trip, before then the hotel was really a run-down shack. I believe it's been bought and is now staffed by a new manager. It looks great from the outside and the rooms are very attractive for a small motel in Presque Isle. There is free wireless internet and phone... More

“This hotel is one of the closest to U.S. Route 1, where large trucks tend to go 70-80 mph at night, rumbling the hotel room. Try to pick a room as far back from the road as possible.”
