Reviewed 4 August 2012

This place is HORRIBLE!!! Ordered online a week in advance drove four hours and them price went from 389 to 490 once we arrived. Then to top it off the place was dirty only one housekeeper for 45 rooms. Pictures make it look nice but there is no patio like the website says its a patio outside his house. We left a day early (today) because we were not going to stay another night in a room that smelled of feces. The drains were backed up in our room #111 and in the room next door he left the day he checked in. When we would flush the potty feces would come up thru the drain in the shower when we used the bathroom sink it wouldn't drain. The motel owner gave us a room 6 rooms down to use just for bathroom/shower purposes because he could not get someone to come in to fix the feces issue on a weekend. Well I couldn't let me three kids stay in such unsanitary conditions nor would I pay 150 a night to have to walk my kids to another motel room to pee or shower or brush their teeth but he said that was the best he could do for us needless to say we checked out this morning and we indeed video taped what would happen if we flushed the toliet I plan on uploading it to you tube for viewing!! Never stay there!!!!!

Room was very clean and bed very comfortable(except for the pillow for me-wife thought it was fine). Check in was friendly and easy. Thought some say rooms are dated I say Classic Maine as they have been updated not worn out and our room was very clean

Always A delight To seeing My friend Manu and family,The Owner.He Takes A Personal Interest In Accomidating his customers. I've Always Been treated Well Buy Him! I always Get A good nite Sleep And The Neihbors/Customers Are Very Responible In Not waking Others early in the am. hours ,Unlike Super 8 Down The Road! The Rooms Are Always Kept Immaculate and With Full Cable,The Rates Are Very Resonable,Unlike Other motels/Super8/etc. Great Location To Sanford And Even Better For The seafood Lovers ,The Weathervane Is Next door! His Housekeepers Work Real Hard In Keeping To rooms Spotless! I Have Several Friends That From W.mass That Been Also Going there For Years and Tell Me The Same Positive Thing About There Stay Here!

Stayed 1 night as we travelled through Maine. Clean spacious well decorated room. Good sized fridge and microwave. NO coffee machine or way of heating water. What a surprise for USA. Basic breakfast of cereals, orange juice and pastries. Near to Shaws supermarket and oth food outlets.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back away from road noise.

We stay here every year and it's great. Clean spacious rooms. Hospitable staff. Nice pool for the kids. Nice hd tv. Internet access in room or at the office you can use the computer. Continental breakfast each morning. Close to area beaches and antique places. Nice shower my son hates to take a shower but loves it here and the beds are very very comfortable the kids love jumping on them too.
