A fantastic place to stay near Pine Point, Black Point, or Ferry beaches at a very affordable price. The rooms are larger and immaculate; the staff is very receptive to guests' needs. Very simple and straight ahead, a great alternative to the busy beach cottage areas. Lots to visit nearby, great food and more things that the locals love. You...

What a wonderful little place this is! My room and bathroom were big, the bed was super-comfortable, and the proprietors could not have been nicer. There aren't a lot of frills here, but who cares? I stayed in Room 210, which offers a queen bed and pull-out sofa--this room is on the second floor right on the end of the...

For the last 12 years, we've always broke up our long drive to and from our lake house by staying over at the same hotel in Scarborough, Maine. Since the hotel we frequented is now undergoing renovation, we read TripAdvisor's tested reviews to aid us in choosing an alternative venue. As a result of what we learned, America's Best Value...

Don't be put off with what appears to be an outdated old motel. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and everything worked the way it should. I've rated the motel higher than I might otherwise have because of the graciousness of the owners. We had a mix up on the dates, totally my fault, and...

The room is very clean, has new carpet, the air conditioning is nice and cold. It has a fridge and microwave and a big clean bathroom. It's also in a nice quiet location. Do not expect luxury, but we were very pleased for the price. For he star rating it can't be beat.
