Dear Djmuzx, I am so sorry your event was moved to another city. We do have a strict online reservation cancellation policy which is made very clear when our customers make their reservations. My manager does recall that you knew the policy when you called to try to cancel. As a Professional Dj, I am sure that you also have... More

The title comes from a post I made on the day I stayed here. The Inn caught my eye on a drive-by and it seemed even better after I'd stopped. The room was clean and comfortable with microwave, fridge, and WiFi. It was fairly cool when I was there but an outside deck and fire pit looked like a nice... More

I read all the reviews and felt pretty good about reserving a room here, but boy was that a bad decision. It's a little ways off the highway and the area around the Inn wasn't very nice. When we pulled into the parking lot the grounds seemed nice enough. The room we were given was right next door to someone... More

If you are one who likes to get off the "super-slab of monotony" on occasion and have a unique and authentic experience, then we highly recommend you stay at Axell's Scandinavian Inn. Get off I-95 at exit 109 and head west up the hill - only a couple miles past "the strip" that is at the exit. You will pull... More

We found this little hotel when every other place in Maine seemed to be booked, and couldn't have been more happy with it! The lady at the front desk (Doreeva - sp?) was very friendly and helpful, as were the local guests we met (hi Lou!).

WOW! What a gorgeous place! I hadn't had a hot meal in 13 days so I made good use of the kitchen! Sheila is very kind. She wrote me a thank you note which really brightened my day. This is a great place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous! ... more   less
