We were in Maine for a week, stayed at four different motels and wouldn't stay here again even if it were free! We stayed one night and the carpets are old, filthy, stained and smelly! The outdoor pool looked fine and the children seemed to enjoy it but the place is old, run down and needs an overhaul! Stay away!

We have been booked all summer long with people who have had wonderful experiences. I'm sorry we didn't work for you.

The dates of our visit were from 7/10/2016 to 7/12/2016. The individual at check in was pleasant and friendly but unfortunately gave our party of 4 a hard time about accepting a coupon of theirs that we found in a local paper, after some give and take they finally accepted the coupon but for only one room and not the...

The coupon booklet is intended to be used on a "walk-in" basis only. It is quite a savings from our posted rates because it is meant to fill last minute vacancies. During the height of the summer months, we often do not have empty rooms to offer walk-in business. The fact that you reserved your room in advance should have...

The hotel room at the Rhumb Line was dirty. There was hair in the shower, the AC did not work and the room smelled strongly of mold. Everyone came out sneezing and sick the following morning. $250 a night for a dirty room. Unfortunately I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Second time and this one even worse than...

I am so sorry. We follow up on all responses. I will definitely have this situation checked out. We have been very busy and all rooms have been used over and over again. We check the AC filters regularly. Our staff has been very good with their duties. I'm puzzled at your comments. Please give us a call so we...

We enjoyed our stay at the Rhumb Line. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. Very nice pool with a fun tiki bar. The food at the tiki bar was excellent. Only negative would be the distance from the town. It was further than we were lead to believe on Expedia.

It's a standard motel. But very clean. And the service is super friendly. Our room was recently remodeled. Again, very clean. All common areas were clean. Set a little ways away from town and the attractions. Continental breakfast was good. Standard. I would stay here again.

I'm so sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We do have a limited memberships program for our pools and fitness room. As we were full on that weekend, I have to assume that many of the children who were playing in the pool were guests as well as some local folks. At the beginning of the summer season, the...

We drove through town one day and really enjoyed the area, so we decided to come back in a few days and stay the night. We looked on line at a few places we had seen, but they were full. My husband came across the Rhumb line on line and we called. We really wanted to have a water view,...

We were going to a local HS graduation, and needed a place to stay without breaking the bank. The Rhumb Line fit the bill. It was clean, and spacious. We did not use the pools, but they were a good size. The woman at the Front Desk was very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend the Rhumb Line Resort.

Location was great, the rooms could use an update rugs were stained and beds were hard. Pool and Hot Tub could have been cleaner, Continental breakfast was average could have had more options. Overall good value for price.

Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. We are presently doing over another dozen rooms with new carpeting and bed linens, curtains, and lamps, taking a section at a time.

We stayed for one night and this was a typical motel. The room was large enough and had 2 queen sized beds. Parking was close and ample. The breakfast provided was good.

We are in the process of doing all rooms over and hope to accomplish this in a span of three years. As of this summer, we are hoping to get 12 more rooms completed. That will put the guest rooms at 2/3 complete. We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again.
