The rooms are spotless, the beds comfortable and the kitchenette is a great addition! I have stayed here for business a few times and found it to be perfectly suited to my needs. It would also make an ideal place to stay for a skiing or hiking trip. Highly recommended! Nice owners, as well.

This was a very friendly and clean place to stay. There is a restaurant just up the road that has more item for breakfast than I ever saw. Nice view of the river in the back. They recommended a very nice place to eat downtown. We were there on a gold prospecting trip. Yes there is gold in Maine and...

We picked this stay after reading the reviews. It was all that was written. Everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was updated with a sparkling clean tub enclosure. We only stayed one night but could have easily stayed much longer due to the comfort & amenities of the room with kitchenette. We ate lunch & breakfast up the road at...

Several family members had stayed here in April 2012 (see earlier review) and we enjoyed our stay so much that we knew we would stay here again. A little different experience this time, not having family members with us, but my mom and I enjoyed our stay nonetheless. One thing we noticed this time that we didn't last time is...

Several family members and I were in the area for my great-aunt's burial in nearby Mexico. Found the Blue Iris Motor Inn on line and after reading reviews, shared the info with my sister, who was making arrangements for 8 of us to travel here. Jean and Peter could not possibly have been more welcoming or more accommodating. We were...

We stayed at the Blue Iris on a Saturday night (before checking in at Sunday River which for some weird reason does not allow Saturday check-ins), we wanted to be close to Sunday River to get a good start on our ski day on Sunday. I found the Blue Iris online and based on mostly positive reviews decided to stay...

This was our first time in the area, and our random choice of lodging turned out to be fortuitous. Well maintained grounds and bright, friendly buildings right alongside the river. The hostess was delightful. We had a suite that was well-appointed and spacious. The kitchenette was fully stocked with utensils and cookware. We'll definitely stay here again on our next...

Very nice with a lovely view of river from the back porch area accessible from sliding glass door in our room. Proprietor very sweet and very knowledgeable about the history of Rumford. We were given directions to the welcome center who in turn gave us lots of info about site seeing, restaurants, covered bridges in the area. Really enjoyed learning...
