I actually spent two nights there in 2014 but never wrote a review. Because other people's reviews have helped me choose places, I thought I should do the same. No complaints about this place. Very clean, comfortable and walking distance into town. Not a full breakfast but the home baked muffins were very good. p.s. my travel date below is...

You have highlighted the things that people love about Towne Motel and we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay! You really can walk to everywhere in Camden from here. It's nice to tell guests who have spent a while in their car that they can just park and walk from here. Hope to see you next year!

I stayed here for one night to attend a conference and it was within walking distance of just about everything we needed. The staff was helpful and friendly and the room was nice and clean. No complaints for this small motel. If I'm ever back in the area, I wouldn't mind staying here at all.

My husband and I stayed here for one night, it was neat as a pin and squeaky clean. Comfortable bed, everything worked fine from the TV to the coffee maker to shower. Easy parking and close to everything in lovely Camden. We walked to dinner and the beautiful harbor. The breakfast was fantastic, everything was homemade, juice, breads, muffins and...

Thank you for this nice and detailed review! We especially appreciate your compliments on our breakfast. Very few people expect home-baked goods or special yogurt and fruit mixes at a motel, but we like to exceed expectations! We're also glad you enjoyed the squeaky-clean-ness of our rooms. Hope to see you again soon; maybe next fall when the leaves are...

Our room was set-up nicely, king-sized bed and sitting area. It was a little chilly but there was a portable heater which did work to heat the room well. The bathroom was small with only a shower stall. The weather was cold out and we wanted to warm up but the shower never got hot only lukewarm at best, a...

We're glad you enjoyed your room, but so sorry about the shower! We have never once had a guest complain about lukewarm water, and we wish you had told us about it at the time; we may have been able to fix the issue. We do hope you stay with us again, and please let us know about your experience...

Retro charm, modern inn amenities: that's us! Thank you so much for this lovely review and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and our home-baked breakfast. The french toast bake is a guest favorite and we had a friend who shared her over-abundant zucchini crop with us, so we made many varieties of zucchini bread this summer :). We...

We stayed for 3 nights and could not have been happier. Rooms we so clean and well appointed. May just be the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in. It appears the rooms have been recently updated.

Clean, comfortable, cozy and convenient. My mother, who is 93, was provided with a "walk-in" shower and hand rails. We were on the first floor and had steps to take to get to our car and breakfast. Will definitely return. A-PLUS.

We enjoyed our breakfast conversations with you and your mom! Our ADA-friendly ground floor room is quite popular because of the large bathroom and walk-in shower. And as you say, it's only a few steps to your car our our dining room. Hope to see you both again soon!
