Rather sleep in the car

Posted Dec 6, 2011
I arrived at about 7 PM and the person behind the desk was in the process of renting the last room. I told him I had a reservation. He had no clue about any reservations. He logged into his computer and confirmed my reservation. The heat was off in the room when I arrived. The temperature was 52 degrees. I had to unplug the microwave in order to plug in the refrigerator. There was no hook or pole to hand any hangars. The toilet was loose. There were 5 towels, no two of which were the same color. There were places where you step on the carpet where you could feel holes in the floor underneath. The carpet was seamed together in several places with the aluminum plates that are normally used between a carpet and a doorsill. I was a little surprised that Expedia dealt with places like this.

cheap motel, cheap condition

Posted Oct 25, 2011
Location: belfast, maine was nice as a drive through but i wouldnt stay for more than a night if i had to go again
the motel was cheap and as such i wasnt expecting an awful lot, but it didnt even meet up to expectations, the heating didnt work and as such they provided a noisey blow heater which needed to be run all night. the room was cleaned daily but the bedding and bed were in a poor state with numerious stains and burn holes from cigaretes. the road noise was herendous as the windows were rotten and single glazed and was often woken during the night by the trucks driving past. overall the motel was old and tired and it showed. i would recomend anybody that was thinking of using this motel to look else where unless using as a 1 night drive through which unfortunatly i wasnt.

Very dingy

Posted Oct 17, 2011
The room was the least expensive one in the area so my expectations were not high for any frills, etc. However, three things really killed it for us: the room smelled like stale cigarettes, the lighting was very dim (you could say "grim"), and the quality of the bed was absolutely terrible (you could feel the springs pushing up through the mattress). We could not wait to get up and leave in the morning.

Serviceable motel

Posted Sep 21, 2011 on Hotels
The Admiral is an aging road side motel. It was clean and resonably priced for a one night stay. More truck stop than Inn, if your stay in the Mid-Coast region is more than a day you may want to upgrade to more contemporary accomodations.

grumpy old man, rude service, mice

Posted Sep 20, 2011
When I checked into this motel, the man came out to the desk after me waiting several minutes trying figure out if anyone was there. The lobby was stinky and dingy and reeked of stale cigarette smoke. I was not greeted with a "hello" or "welcome" but a grizzled guy with a bad attitude looking at me like I had 3 heads. There were no "thank you" or any normal exchange..just a key and that he charged me. The beds are old and the springs dig into your back, the decor is super dated ...not completely unclean inside but there were some dead mice hanging around the front at night when i came back. Not a good place...try the Gull or comfort inn which might be a few more bucks (they are all close by) but well worth it.

The Motel in Belfast Maine was close to the bay

Posted Aug 23, 2011 on Hotels
Although I found the room to be very small it was clean and very peaceful. We didn't spend much time there just to sleep and shower then on our way up the coast of Maine.

Nice owners aside.....

Posted Aug 9, 2011 on Hotels
Older property. Outside looked good, but inside was a big disappointment: no closet; curtain didn't cover the window completely (and had tiny holes in it); stale odor (old cigarettes?); floor shook (had numerous "soft spots" and caused things to bounce off the furniture); heavy highway noise; and beds were uncomfortable (one "crackled" when sat/laid upon/rolled over on). Hate to give such "bad news" on this place because the owners were a wonderful couple who were very friendly and worked hard to make us comfortable but, unfortunately, their property wasn't much for them to work with.
