There is a room off reception with a coffee maker but it was not in use. Room had two double beds which were comfortable and the room was warm even... More

Our family stopped here on a easter weekend trip. The owner is very welcoming and told us about the area and directed us as to where to go for a great dinner and what to do the next day and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is very picturesque. I was very happy to have stopped here.

I have just come up to Maine to visit my family and they booked me in a room at this hotel. I have stayed here before and the rooms are clean and comfortable as they have been in the past. The location is also very convenient as they are on the highway. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. You... More

I've stayed at the Spring Fountain Motel 4 months during the last year. I really like it. The owners are great. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the price is right. This is the only place I will stay in the area.

July 11,2015 We stayed there last night because the other places were full. The bedding was clean, but the bathroom floor and tile was not. The motel is from the 1960's and in bad repair. The wooden steps and decks are rotten and dangerous. The units in back have chairs on the deck with stuffing hanging out. I don't think... More

Spring Fountain is a very basic motel directly on Rt 1 just south of Ellsworth. We had spent a long day touring the Penobscot peninsula, the sun was going fast, and we did not have a hotel nor did we see any others available online -- so we snagged this place for the night. We were given Room 30 --... More
