The Yardarm Motel is historical, simple, clean and comfortable. We stopped by on our way to Portland at the end of the summer season looking for a comfortable room. Bed was very comfortable, shower hot, and breakfast gave us a chance to meet guests, some of whom were visiting the local Fiber College. The proprietor was so friendly and welcoming. Stop here!

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. There were enough of us that we needed three rooms. The rooms are bright and clean, including the bathrooms. The breakfast room is absolutely adorable. It stays open until 9pm and is a cute little spot to gather and socialize with friends or family while staying at the motel. We found the staff very friendly and we felt welcome. There are quaint benches outside of each room to provide a place to sit and enjoy the breeze on the front porch. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights on a recent visit to Castine. The owners were pleasant and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast room is absolutely charming and The Old Lady loved the vintage creamers/sugars on the tables. No, it is not the hot breakfast you get in the chain hotels and B&Bs, but it was a nice perk. The seating on the porch outside the rooms looks comfortable and relaxing but since it was raining cats and dogs, we never got the opportunity to try it. There are ashtrays on the porch for people who smoke and it was nice that, as nonsmokers, there was no hint of cigarette smoke in our room. While a different reviewer stated she only had two prong outlets in her room, ours had three prong outlets throughout. We will absolutely come back to stay the next time we're in the area.

Nice location with great views of the port. Several different types of rooms available. Nice breakfast area available until 900 PM each day. It was the house of a Ship Builder with the Motel added on. Does need some fixing up.

Disappointed in the motel. The plugs were only two prongs and we needed three prong plugs. The breakfast was sugary items, bread type items. People hanging outside smoking. Grounds were not maintained well.
