A little noisy but a good value

Posted Oct 16, 2017 on Hotels
Next door neighbors were noisy the first night (kids) and upstairs neighbor was noisy on second night. In other words walls and ceilings are a little thin but otherwise a good value

Glenn we are sorry that your stay was a bit noisy and we wish at the time that you contacted us at the front desk, so we could of helped out with decreasing the noise. Next time I would recommend a second floor guest room, where there is a scenic view of the Penobscot River from your guest balcony and less exposure to the noise. Thank you very much for staying with us at the Milford Motel "On the River" Happy Holidays! Jayne

Very nice river views. Super friendly and helpful staff. Quick ride to many restaurants, etc in nearby Bangor.

Just what we needed

Posted Sep 30, 2017 on Hotels
The proprietor was friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious with two full or queen beds. The windows opened for a lovely breeze off the river. There was a compact kitchenette with a fridge, sink, stove, pots and pans, dishes and a microwave plus a table and two chairs. We were sick of eating out and had food with us so we made dinner and breakfast while there. The shower had great pressure.

Needs Updating

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: Friendly owners, nice location near UMaine.
Cons: They need to completely renovate the units. Not sure if they really grasp how to do this. Nice people in need of some outside contractor guidance.
Bathroom ceiling falling in from water damage. Beds lumpy, felt like sleeping on the ground. Old shower valves hard to adjust water temp. Carpets worn and fraying in stairway.

Home Comfort Inn

Posted Aug 29, 2017 on Hotels
Not to far from Bangor (10 min drive). The motel is a little dated but had all the conveniences of home, such as full kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The motel could use some cosmetic upgrades like bathroom, ceiling tiles, Windows, and parking. But overall it was comfortable to stay, lots of room space with comforts of home, and the people there were friendly.

Thank you for your feedback, on a summer weekend reserve in advance for a guest room with a upstair balcony, those rooms go fast. Leaf peeping is right around the corner or on a winter retreat, we look forward to your second stay in Maine.

Nice older hotel. Stocked kitchenette with very friendly owners. A little off the beaten path but not too far.

Little to none professionalism

Posted Jul 25, 2017
We were not from around and when we checked in the lady gave us the key to an already occupied room to which we almost walked into something inappropriated for my 5 yo and then blaming us for checking in "too early" so her excuse was that there weren't any clean rooms available like the one we requested. Then when i asked her what was the penalty for cancelling the reservation she said none but ended up charging me for the night even thought we didnt stay. I wouldn't recommend this place, stay away and find a better cleaner place
