We decided to attend the Ploye Festival in August and did a frantic search for motel accommodations. The Northern Door Inn seemed to be the only, available motel so we booked a couple nights. This is a throw-back type of motel, reminding us of our early days of travel in the 70s and 80s--refurbished rooms that had been updated with... More

We stayed at the Northern Door Inn overnight after completing the 740 mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail, which terminates in Fort Kent. This hotel was everything we could hope for after 32-1/2 days on the water - very clean, comfortable beds, up to date decor with nice artwork that celebrates tis lovely area, odor free (and smoke free), and nice,...

-17 degrees and hungry, we found what we needed; warmth and very good food! It seems to be a local favorite and is now one of mine, even though I won't get there soon.

The room had 2 queen sized beds, and the mattresses were VERY comfortable (not what I expected). They had a basic continental breakfast in the morning which I passed on.... More

We were in Fort Kent for a family wedding in May. As Fort Kent is way out in the wilds and this is the only motel in town, We weren't sure what to expect. But fear not. Friendly staff, clean, decent sized rooms and comfortable beds made a perfect stay.

The only motel choice in Fort Kent, provides a clean and comfortable stay. The property is a standard motel located at the start of Rt 1. I stayed in a corner room with king size bed. The room was fairly large and I loved the larger windows. The decor is simple and perhaps a little dated, however, the room and... More

Nice place, very clean, nice people. Real close to down town store's, close to the border if you want to spend a day in Canda. Close to the college University of Maine in Fortkent. Very friendly little town. It's a nice place to visit.
