Consider this private motel over the typical chains. The bar/restaurant was on site, frequented by locals, staffed by a sharp, efficient gal and good burgers and nachos! Hot breakfast of eggs, sausage, etc. Good wifi. Cookies in the lobby. Walmart across the street.

We had 2 queen beds in our room and I was concerned when it appeared one bed had a few hairs in it...we checked the other bed and it seemed clean so we slept in that bed as we came in late at night. The next morning when getting cleaned up I picked up the towel next to the sink...

Didn't have reservations - just stopped going through town. Great place to stay. Very clean; affordable. Rooms were very clean and neat. Bathrooms had fabulous towels! Small sink outside bathroom made it easy for two to get ready.

Seriously, Houlton is in the middle of NO WHERE! There are very limited options of places to stay and we were staying here on business and were told this was the best place. The hotel is dated and doesn't have a lot of extra amenities like a gym or a pool. The place was pretty clean. The beds were lumpy...

Staff was very friendly. The breakfast lady was very proud of her spread. Great location for interstate travel. Rooms need a little updating but it's not ab long term stay place. The restaurant on site has good bar food and good prices.

We had to change our overnight lodging at the last minute when we changed our travel plans. The reviews for this establishment appeared to be lukewarm but we needed a place to stay. The staff was extremely helpful, the room neat and clean, and while the furnishings appeared a little dated the room was pleasant and inviting. Breakfast was included...

I was on a solo trip to Caribou and it was getting late but was able to get a room. The room was clean and the bed comfortable there was a small Pub on site. In the morning the wait staff Cathy Ryder very friendly with a great personality. I would stop there again.
