“A perfect 3 night stay”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We came to Maine to see some Moose. We are travelling from California and have 2 dogs. This motel was great. The view was awesome. There was a huge lawn area to exercise the dogs. The room was spotless with a microwave, fridge and Keurig coffee maker. The TV and WiFi worked fine. We had a private balcony. The breakfast was adequate with OJ, cereal, bagels/English muffins and in a nicely decorated room. The homemade blueberry muffins were so delicious. Normally, I wouldn't eat something so sweet for breakfast. The property is up on a hill away from all the other motels but only a few minutes from the center of town. I could find nothing significant to fault.

My wife and I stayed two nights over Columbus Day weekend. I was grateful to have found a place with vacancy that weekend, and the rates weren't unreasonable although there was a two-night minimum. It was adequate as a motor lodge ... A little worn, but clean enough. My major complaint is the thinness of the walls - could easily hear normal conversation from next door, normal TV volumes, etc. Room below us had a dog that barked intermittently throughout the night so that didn't help either. The view is awesome and the place is located five easy minutes from Greenville, so if that's your destination this place will do. Just don't arrive with resort expectations.

What an unexpected treasure. This is a small motel/motor lodge on a hill outside Greenville. The views from each room are spectacular. Each room has a private balcony which overlooks Moosehad Lake, Greenville and mountains. It is very small with only a few rooms. Our room was clean. It was very quiet. Very nice and helpful hosts at check in and departure. Room had a small frig and a microwave. Definitely would stay here again!

Our first time here proved to be a nice experience--even has a K-Cup coffeemaker in each room! The place was very nice and clean and the view from the room cannot be beat--especially those on the second floor. Even had WI FI--in Greenville Maine!! We awakened to a low fog hanging over the valley and then watched as the sunlight moved across the fall foliage.

Room Tip: Upstairs have better views

Kineo View is a small motor lodge part way up a hill, and gives you an absolute beautiful view from every room. You look out on forest, Moosehead Lake, mountains, and sometimes, luckily, a moose! Also great viewing of the night sky from your own deck. The owner is knowledgeable of the area, and gives helpful advice. Also, the zucchini bread is the BEST!!

Room Tip: All rooms have a view, we prefer the second floor. Corner rooms have more windows.

This motel is located a couple miles away from Moosehead Lake, but does offer great views of the southern end of the lake and a couple of the islands. The rooms are nice in size and well appointed with wifi, minifridges, and microwaves. The minifridge allowed us to stock up on drinks and snacks for our hikes and the freezer portion got cold enough to freeze water and gatorade to remain cold throughout our day-long hikes. The room had a private balcony with two chairs and a small table, and looks over a field, woods, Moosehead Lake, and Mt. Kineo in the background. One of the things that struck me most about the room, was how fresh it smelled when we first entered. I know this may seem like a little thing, but most rooms have a cold, slightly musty, damp smell when you first check-in like they didn't have the air-conditioner on, and then try to over compensate by turning the AC on full balst right before you check in. This room smelled very pleasant and was an ideal temperature.
The owner is a hidden gem. He is friendly, quiet, and unassuming, but has a wealth of information. All you need to do is ask. He can tell you the best restaurant (whatever your taste), where to find moose, great hikes, etc. He not only knows the immediate area, but the surrounding area (~100-200 mile radius).
The motel is quiet, it is set back from the highway ~1/2 a mile or more, and only has about a dozen rooms. It is a great place to get away from it all.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room if you can handle the stairs. You get a better view.

My wife and I stayed at the Kineo View Motor Lodge for a few nights. It was our first trip to Greenville and we very much enjoyed it. We stayed in the Overlook Suite and it was well worth the money. The owners were very nice and the location was perfect. It is close to the village ( a few minute ride) but in a very quiet location. We will stay there again and hope to return very soon.
