“Good Night's Sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

Stayed here for 1 night on a return trip to Canada.It was very clean, quiet and the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. The room is basic, very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was filling and plentiful. We went to the pub for an evening drink. They were trying out a new menu and did not have full food service, but they were passing out free samples of items that will appear on their menu. This was our first time here, but we will return.

We stayed for one night in late September. The room was large, impeccably clean, and very comfortable. There was a sink in the bedroom with a small counter, as well as in the bathroom which was a nice surprise. Even though there are few motel choices in Houlton, this would be a good choice under any circumstances. The bar was upgrading its kitchen while we were there so could not provide any food except popcorn, so that was a bit disappointing. The plus is when they open the kitchen they will be able to serve meals - the current inconvenience will be well worth the end result. Anyway, there are a number of near by restaurants, so this wasn't an issue. Breakfast was included and was very ample; sausage, scrambled eggs, waffles, juices, breads, etc. Fruit would have been nice, but this was a good breakfast. The price, $110 for 2 queens, was fair and competitive. All in all, a very positive experience.

What a friendly receptionist!! She assured us that someone would be available all 24 hours to help in any way. The room was average, was clean but could use some updating. One of the mattresses sagged a bit in the middle.The tub area had a little mold and the bath mat should be replaced. One big plus was having 2 sinks, one in the bathroom and one just outside the bathroom door. That was very handy for the 3 adults traveling. Breakfast was adequate with waffles, eggs, bacon, bagels and different breads, and some choices for cereal, but no fruit. It seemed like the best place in town.

Clean, convenient, and safe. Local helpful desk person. Within walking distance of a 24/7 truck stop diner that serves up breakfast anytime as well as other diner food at a reasonable price.
Just stayed there one night on way to Nova Scotia.
Free breakfast was well intentioned and with just a little care could be outstanding.
Would stay there again.

I had to go up to Houlton on business and there is only a couple of places to stay. I use to stay at the place across the street but figured I would give this place a try and I am glad I did. The hotel is spotless. The rooms were neat clean and spacious. The only reason I knocked off a star was because the pub was closed for renovations..............

This place was incredible. We had been on the road for a short while travelling to Nova Scotia from NYC. We had stayed in a number of lodge's, B&B's and Hotels in the process. Reason I loved Ivey's

1. The value - cheapest place we stayed on the whole trip, still got two comfy double beds, fridge, clean big bathroom, TV etc.

2. The service - the little Irish bar (only stays open till 10 sadly) on site is a great place to hang out. Also couldn't believe the prices here! (Ok so this is ME and not NYC but still a welcome sight)

3. Location - we came in on the bus from Portland (via Bangor) and the lodge is a 2 minute walk from the bus stop.

4. Service - Friendly greeting, even at 9pm, receptionist gave us info on getting to (and across) the border the next morning. Just happy friendly people.

5. Brekky was thrown in (not the best) but still filled a hole.

If you're in Houlton then this is the only place you should think about staying at!

We were 5 people on three harleys on a rainy cold night wandering just hoping to find a place , any place to come in from the rain and we hit gold !!! We came across the Ivey by chance and they welcomed us with open arms and no reservation !! The rooms were awesome , big comfortable and so clean ! I wAs even able to take a soak since it was the first time we found a bathroom clean enough to do so . The staff impecable the breakfast was a great treat , plentiful and hot, when you are going on a bike you really notice the extra care of places!! We even asked if we could stay a little past checkout due to rain and the answer was a happy yes and more coffee if you want it :)) we travel a lot and we cant recommend the Ivey enough, thank you for being the port in our storm!!
