This is not a fancy or luxurious place, but it is remarkably well-run and well-maintained. It looks like a beautiful classic motel from the sixties with mid-century modern styling, except that it always looks brand new.The entrance is right along route 3, but the property extends far back from the highway and there is actually a private entrance to Acadia at the rear. The interiors are more modern with flat-panel TV's and very comfortable beds. The sound-proofing is terrific, with barely a noise intruding from other rooms. Housekeeping is immaculate.
The owners have run this motel for many years and clearly know and enjoy what they are doing. They are always able to provide information that will make your stay in the area more interesting and pleasant. This year we had reservations for mid-May, but when the weather forecast called for rain the entire time we were to be on vacation, they were willing to change our reservations at the last minute to the week after Memorial Day with no penalties. I'm sure they wouldn't always be able to do this during the high season, but it was a very nice gesture which allowed us to really enjoy a much-needed vacation!
They offer a package with dinner included at several local restaurants which we have used several times. The meals have always been good and are a significant value.
