Yankee Clipper Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Belfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Just enjoyed two nights at the updated Yankee Clipper and it was a delight. The staff welcomed us with friendly smiles and the room was wonderfully updated and very clean. The convenience to locations around mid-Coast Maine was terrific and having Young's Lobster across the road made for great end of day eating.

I think you cannot beat the value for what you get at the Yankee Clipper and with its update, it is an unexpected delight on Rt. 1.

Room Tip: Since the whole motel was just updated, there is not a better room.

My husband and I wanted to go up the coast of Maine and do some hiking. Belfast was a good central location since we wanted to hike around Camden first, then continue on to the Bucksport/ Ellsworth area. This motel was very clean and comfortable for our needs. It was great having a small refrigerator in the room for lunch supplies and cold water. The laundry facility came in handy as well. Although the motel is close to a busy road, the air conditioner fan was able to muffle some of the noise.

For a place to lay your head the Yankee Clipper was great. The rooms are really nicely done. However, it is NOT in Belfast and the footbridge that someone else mentions isn't really a very viable option - you'd have to walk several blocks on the side of a very busy highway to get to it which might be ok during the day but I would not want to do it at night. The highway it is on is very busy and the hotel sits pretty close to it so you hear the trucks all night long. The beds are very comfy though.

Motel is right on busy route 1 at the edge of Belfast, ME. Great walk to town across the road, down the hill and across a scenic foot bridge. Driving to town was simple too, just a couple of right turns to get to city streets. Looks like an older motel from the outside, but the room was up to the standards of bigger, newer places. We took advantage of AARP discount and saved $10.

I traveled to Belfast from Boston for family issues and stopped very late night at Yankee Clipper and everything worked perfect: the online reservation, the cleanliness, the discrete but ready and helpful staff. Absolutely recommendable as and affordable and comfortable stay on the roadside of Maine

The Yankee Clipper is a completely remodeled motel. It's modern and comfortable and features the usual amenities: fridge, coffee pot and microwave. It's comfortable and of good value. Hugging the highway, it has no pleasant view and the vehicular traffic is steady, though the motel is quiet. A decent lodging to hang your hat for a night or two as you tour beautiful Belfast and environs, but not much else.

This is a great place to stop for an overnighter on the way up or down the coast. Just been completely refurbished and well-appointed on all counts. Great to discover the bonus of a guest laundry (not actually mentioned on the website so far as we can see).

Belfast is also worth some exploration for the docks and the shops.
