We travel regularly from Ontario to Nova Scotia and have been staying here in Maine as it is only a short drive over the border and accommodation is cheaper here than in New Brunswick. As we are here only one night we are less demanding than if it was a week. Oddly enough we usualyy request the old section as you can unload directly into the room, they are ground level and access direct to the parking lot. This last time we had an non smoking room, but had obviously been smoking, the smell. The manager explained that they were switching all rooms over to non smoking but it would take time to replace the carpets and firniture.The rooms are basic, newer section is nicer. It has a pool and resturant, just recently reopened. It has a continental breakfast, just the basics. Convenient to Walmart, super market, and gas. Manager always friendly. This is a basic but reasonable motel in a small community. The question I received from US Border Patrol was "Why would you want to go to Houlton?" Yes this is rural, Houlton pop. 12,000, is the capital of Aroostook County, pop. 75,000, which has an area larger than Connecticut and Rhode Island combined.
