Reviewed 18 September 2013

Our room (room 12) was hardly bigger than the uncomfortable double bed it contained, and paper-thin walls meant we could hear everything going on outside (a rainstorm) and next door (showers, toilets, A/C, you name it). Our room stank of old cigarette smoke despite the "nonsmoking room" signs that were all over the place. My single star goes to the friendly staff, but I would never stay at this place again or at any other one in this chain, even it if was free.

Room Tip: Stay away from room 12.

My wife and I went in Aug, stayed for two days and were charged for three. Room was old with old smell. Outside stairs were wood, slippery in rain and rotting in places. People stood outside their rooms and smoked which of course came in your room. Had pool but was closed due to being out of date. They said I booked twice so they charged me twice for different times and refused to do the honest thing.
Do yourself a favor and spend a little more and get a decent room.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

We booked 2 rooms over the Internet for $66 plus tax...cheaper than Motel 6. The rooms were very clean but very old school. Our room had robins egg blue fixtures & our neighbors lemon yellow. Great shower pressure & good selection on free breakfast. Would come back again for a quick night stay.

The price was right, and of course on a weekend trip that was what sold us on staying here. Once we walked inside, the smell of a musty closed-up room was overwhelming. We switched on the A/C and it did help, but the two nights we were there were pretty uncomfortable.

If you're looking to stay somewhere in Brunswick, splurge for something a little nicer.

I have stayed here quite a few times and it never disappoints me. You know what to expect and what to get and at a reasonable rate you'll find clean rooms and bathrooms, free WiFi and a refrigerator in the room. Breakfast is included and consists of coffee, tea, oatmeal, English muffins, bagels and cream cheese. NOTE: the pool is closed permanently as the State of Maine directs all commercial pool-owners to install am ADA approved ramp in to the pool which is financially impossible for small business owners. What a pity, the large pool was an added attraction to this well located motel.

Room Tip: rooms in the back (away from busy Rt 1, are quieter.

This is typical 2* motel - clean, moderately sized rooms, park at the door. The free breakfast is minimal. Check in and out was quick and easy. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. It's quiet but right off Rt 1.

Last time I stayed there, the heat was off when I arrived. This time, I called ahead and they had the heat on.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back if you're really sensitive to road noise.

The rooms are crowded, too much furniture in such a small space...the bathrooms are tiny, the lock on the bathroom door doesn't work , the only floor lamp which would have provided the best lighting was broken, a wall outlet was coming right out of the wall...and if you need a comfy pillow and mattress for a good night's sleep, bring your own!!!!

Room Tip: The heaters work!
