I was very pleasantly surprised with this motel, given the price we paid. Rooms were comfortable (though not perfect - more on that later), and staff (everyone from housekeeping to dining room staff to front desk) were very friendly and helpful. The outdoor pool is heated to 82 degrees, so it was still open when we were there in early Oct, though we didn't get a chance to use it. There is also some grassy areas and a toddler playground.
What stood out for us was the breakfast. We were expecting a very minimal continental breakfast, and were pleasantly surprised with a fairly large smorgasbord of selections, both hot and cold. The dining "room" is in it's own separate building next to the office, and has ample seating, and like I said, lots of selection. Hot foods consisted of a different potato, meat, and egg selection each of the three days we were there, as well as a DIY waffle station with about 6 different toppings. Cold foods consisted of a large variety of breads/ bagels, pastries, and cereals, hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, and fruit (though that was minimal). Coffee, milk and juice of course, too. Filled us up with energy every day to tackle nearby Acadia, which is about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Nearby (walking distance) also is Pirates Cove, a really awesome looking miniature golf place that were didn't get to try, but really want to!
Rooms - not be best, but I really can't deduct any stars for this, given the price and the other excellent qualities of this motel. The rooms were small but clean, and well maintained. The toiletries were of a better quality than expected. Only real flaw was that where were only two drawers to place your clothes in, which is just not enough for 4 people! And there is no coat closet - just a hanging rack in the sink area. which is the other end of the room from the door.
So yes, I'm sure you can find a better room for twice the price, and maybe even a slightly better breakfast and location if you're willing to pay even more than twice the price. For us, we'll happily return to the Best Western. less

Thank you very much for your generous review! We are always happy to hear from our guests. It is especially nice to have you mention the breakfast offerings do vary so our guests do not have the same options every single day of their stay. We are doing intensive interior renovations to over half of our guest rooms this winter and the rest in 2018. Although they are clean and in good shape, we want to update to a more modern look. Rates will not be affected! Thank you again, Jane
