I visited this motel because of its proximity to the Bangor & Aroostook Trail as I like mountain biking. The hotel staff, though friendly and courteous, was not aware of this nearby asset until I referred to it as a snowmobile trail and then they were able to direct me straight to it. The room was clean and comfortable. There... More

Normally we would overnight in Bangor but this was a good option having left our home late in the day. The room was basic but clean and the bed comfortable. I found the pillows to be very hard and uncomfortable but then again I usually am very particular about the pillow. Good free Wi-Fi worked well. Decent hot breakfast included... More

This motel was an excellent value, with clean, tidy, and reasonably modern rooms. All staff we encountered were friendly. Dave was especially friendly and pleasant. If our travels take us to Holton, ME again we will certainly stay at Ivey's again.

The motel is old, but it is very clean, and kept nice. The light switches, signs in the room, and the beds were old, but it really didn't matter. It was clean, warm, dry, and comfortable. I really enjoyed the bed, it was nice and soft. The extra light in the bathroom was nice. They had HBO. Free hot breakfast.... More

We have family in Houlton, and when we visit we always stay at Ivey's. A smile and first name salutation greeted us upon our arrival last time.

My three generation group (grandma, mom, and daughter) stayed at Iveys in the depths of the frigid winter to see family and go skiing. Ivey's is a clean and comfortable place, made even more charming by Dave, the morning breakfast manager.
