We were in the area again doing genealogical research, and even though it was a holiday weekend, there were rooms available here. It is a basic motel, but we found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs. We requested a first-floor room so that my elderly mother could access it easily. The room was ample, clean, brightly lit, and had a refrigerator. The room also had cable TV and free wifi. A brief walk across the parking lot is an excellent restaurant--Helen's Restaurant--that serves home-style food and was always full of patrons during our stay. The motel sits on the west bank of the Machias River, so we had spectacular views of the tidal river through the large sliding glass doors in our room. The only drawback being on the first floor were the neighbors, who seemed to think it was okay to gawk inside as they walked by with their dog or stand in front of our room talking loudly on their cell phones. But, that was not the hotel's problem.
