On a motorcycle loop of Maine, we decided on Presque Isle as a jumping off spot to go further north to Fort Kent and america's First Mile. One of the beauties of Maine is that is is sparsely populated and many of the towns don't have much to offer. With the Hampton nearby charging ridiculous rates for where it is, we decided on Northeastland. Pulling up on a Sunday, I wondered who scared all the people away! and noticed the old style middle of town hotel architecture. Parking in the back lot, we walked in with trepidation but I was pleasantly surprised to see a clean and well maintained lobby- almost homey. The young lady behind the desk was most helpful, but as a young local, she yearned for more action than PI offers it seemed!! She promptly gave us our key and explained the restaurant (closes early on Sunday!) and bar hours.
The hallway was well maintained and the room was as well. No king but the room was more than adequate for our needs. I'd say it fell between a Holiday Inn Express and Comfort Inn.
We freshened up and decided to ride some more to Fort Fairfield and into New Brunswick, Canada.
We came back late and went to the bar to get a beverage before heading to the restaurant. Fortunately we overheard the bartender tell another patron (the place was empty) the kitchen closed in 15 minutes! We ended up having dinner at the bar, which was passable.
There are not many options in walking distance (if you don't want to get back on the bike) so the Hotel's bar and restaurant are a welcomed addition to those not wishing to drive anymore!
If I had to be up there again, I would stay here again for sure.
