We were attempting to our run the hurricane and found this inn. I’m typically not a motel person…..but I truly enjoyed staying here. The hotel was very clean…with wood floors, instead of carpet…..the staff was very nice and happy to help! We will be back here in the future!

I was looking for somewhere to stay close to Cobscook Bay State Park because I had friends camping there for the week. The Inn is about 1/2 hour drive to the park. The room was perfect! It was very clean and well appointed. The refrigerator had bagged ice in the freezer a pleasant surprise. The thank you card was a very nice touch. The inn is set back off the road so you don’t hear road traffic. Rooms have been updated and are comfortable. Thank you for a pleasant stay. Michelle East Longmeadow MA.

We stayed overnight in Machias on the way home to NY from the Canadian maritimes. Found this motel on Tripadvisor - the reviews are correct: it's an updated, comfortable, clean, tastefuly decorated motel along Route 1 in Machias. We loved the updated decor, new furishings and ease of check-in. The bed was extremely comfortable, providing me with my best sleep of the entire trip! Heated floor in the bathroom and personal welcome note added to the pleasant stay. We enjoyed going to Bad Little Brewing for dinner - less than 5 minutes away in the heart of Machias. Would definately stay here again.

We were very impressed with this little Inn in Machias. The rooms are newly renovated and are quite stylish, not what we expected in this small town. Our room had a refrigerator and microwave, with a small desk by the entry, and the bed was very comfortable. The friendly owner is in the office in the morning, but she can be reached quickly by phone at other times. The price was quite reasonable for this area, and we would definitely stay here again. The only downside is that there is no good place for breakfast in Machias. There is a bakery in town but it opens later. We ended up eating at Dunkin’ Donuts, which was not great unless you like loads of sugar. For supper we recommend trying Helen's, right down the street.

Very comfortable stay. Room was very clean and very new. Staff was not around but was available when needed. Room codes instead of key made it easy. Would recomend stay here. Worthwhile. Close to Helen's restaurant. Very good food and like home cooked meals. Local things to do and close to many more.

My husband and I were so pleased with our room, it was all newly renovated and fresh and clean. The bed were comfy, and the owners left us with a hand written note card with phone number contacts and the weekend weather report. Just so thoughtful. There is also a cute firepit area where we went after a day of exploring to had a glass of wine and met some other wonderful travelers. It's lovely, quite and a great price. Thank you so much.

Very clean and comfortable. The beds are very soft and comfy but hubby complained of the scent in sheets ( bleach, I think). This was our second stay this year and we hope to get at least one more before the year ends. Easy access to ATV trails so if that's what you are looking for, this place is an excellent choice.

Nice clean room - just the type of place we were looking for when choosing this inn. Not the best view but nice quiet rooms. Request for assistance was promptly handled. Good local restaurants available.

Our room was great, and everything looked brand new. Was very comfortable and clean and very well maintained. Very quiet location and no one above or below you to make noise. We had 2 queen beds, frig, coffeemaker and the owners left us a small bag of ice, so thoughtful. It was a great 2 nights!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Margarita Inn, and from opening the door for the very 1st time we were very pleased with our choice. Not only was the room extremely clean and already cool, (we were experiencing an unseasonably hot stretch of weather), there was even a handwritten, “Thank You”, note upon arrival. Do not mistake this establishment for your typical, “motel’. The rooms are beautifully updated, and is conveniently located to Cutler and Lubec. We will absolutely be back, thank you Brecken for a very pleasant stay. Michael and Melissa Coons Elm Street Photography, Milo, Maine.
