Our room was set-up nicely, king-sized bed and sitting area. It was a little chilly but there was a portable heater which did work to heat the room well. The bathroom was small with only a shower stall. The weather was cold out and we wanted to warm up but the shower never got hot only lukewarm at best, a...

We're glad you enjoyed your room, but so sorry about the shower! We have never once had a guest complain about lukewarm water, and we wish you had told us about it at the time; we may have been able to fix the issue. We do hope you stay with us again, and please let us know about your experience...

We spent one night at the hotel - loved it - the rooms are comfortable and very clean! I love the retro motel feel - the breakfast was amazing - the homemade french toast bake was fabulous and the zucchini bread - yummy! I will stay here again when I come back to Camden - a lovely harbor town!!!

Retro charm, modern inn amenities: that's us! Thank you so much for this lovely review and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and our home-baked breakfast. The french toast bake is a guest favorite and we had a friend who shared her over-abundant zucchini crop with us, so we made many varieties of zucchini bread this summer :). We...

We stayed for 3 nights and could not have been happier. Rooms we so clean and well appointed. May just be the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. It appears the rooms have been recently updated. Location is wonderful though I would hesitate to get a room right next to the street which is very busy. Hotel staff was...

Clean, comfortable, cozy and convenient. My mother, who is 93, was provided with a "walk-in" shower and hand rails. We were on the first floor and had steps to take to get to our car and breakfast. Will definitely return. A-PLUS.

We enjoyed our breakfast conversations with you and your mom! Our ADA-friendly ground floor room is quite popular because of the large bathroom and walk-in shower. And as you say, it's only a few steps to your car our our dining room. Hope to see you both again soon!

This is a cute hotel with simple features and very clean. The room had a flat screen television (which we never used), a Keurig coffee maker with selection of Kcups, and a refrigerator. There was a window air conditioner that really made the room nice and cool on a hot and humid day. We loved the sign in the bathroom...

The Towne Motel website has lots of provided information about their location and the area. We stayed 2 nights in early August with our family of 4 including 2 young adult children on our way to Acadia National Park. Room rate was very reasonable. We were warmly welcomed after our long drive from PA. The online description and pictures are...

Thank you so much for your detailed review! We do host many families here at Towne Motel, and we're happy to provide cereal, toast, etc for "picky eaters" (in addition to accomodating guests who have vegan, dairy-free, or gluten-free diets). We're so glad you enjoyed our spacious double-queen room downstairs (a favorite with traveling families) and our home baked continental...

Camden is a highly desirable tourist destination and prices are high, so to locate a place to stay in the middle of town with reasonable rates is a real find.In addition it is clean with parking near your room and a comfortable bed. There is much to be said for the '50's style motel if it is well taken care...

Thank you for this nice review. The Towne Motel (1st floor) was built in 1955 and has been lovingly maintained, over the years, by a series of owners. We're proud to continue that tradition and to make our own improvements. And as you say, you can't beat this location for the price. Hope to see you again soon!

Thank you for noting the impeccable cleanliness of our property! It's one of the comments we hear over and over again: wow, is your place CLEAN! Sometimes people aren't sure what to expect from a motel, and we're happy to far exceed expectations. We are blessed with an amazing crew of housekeepers who take great pride in their work. Hope...

Thank you! We loved hosting you guys...and hearing the latest from the halls of academe (in a former life we were both English professors). We had fun renovating Room 16--our Cottage-Style King--and because it's in the original part of the building (the 1853 house), it feels like an inn, not a motel room. So glad you enjoyed breakfast and got...
