Joe and Cheryl were born with hearts of gold to still be in the hospitality business for over 40 years. Raising their family, and now 6 grandchildren in Rangeley has proven they are growing their angel wings too. This motel, built in 1954 by Joe's father, is a step back in time. The family cabins on Rangeley Lake make this a very special place to stay. Rustic and simple, these cabins offer the basics in a setting so lovely you win't want to leave. John is the on site construction go-to guy, and he is methodically renovating one room, one cabin at a time to upgrade the motel with modern kitchens, bathrooms, and furnishings, along with A/C for next summer. But if you like the old fashioned cabin feel, hopefully they will leave one to rent that will always be a tribute to his father who has this vision 70 years ago to provide a priceless setting on Rangeley Lake for everyone to enjoy. We give everyone 5 stars for effort and kindness too! Thank you to all for making cur stay in Rangeley so memorable. We will be back next year! Debbie and Gene, Philadelphia

This was a great choice while visiting the Rangeley area! The owners were so friendly and accommodating! The room was recently refreshed and well appointed, with a smart utilization of space so all our recreational equipment was easily stored. The kitchenette was stocked with all the basics, a great range top , microwave, toaster oven and Keurig. The TV was HUGE! Our 18 foot Boston Whaler was made welcome and there is a boat launch and dock for guests. Best of all was the fabulous view of the lake, just steps away, and the grandkids loved the little playground. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

For $250 a night, you can get an old cabin with a noisy heater in the floor of the living room, with few working light bulbs, no paper towels, no toilet paper and not very well cleaned. We left after one night.

No Internet... I was told by the motel manager that nearby lake conditions sometimes interfered with their Motel Internet.  Furthermore, he was no "IT expert" and there was nothing to be done about the No Internet situation. Apparently, the digital TV suffered from the same problerm as the screen would lock up every 30-45 seconds. Digital Dish?  Regardless, less than an hour after paying the motel's overnight fee of $196.00, which advertised Free WIFI, was not to be. I had been able to download one email at molasses speed before Town & Lake Motel’s WIFI signal gave up altogether. Also to make matters worse there was no desk nor desk chair (or easy chair for that matter) in the room. One would think that's why there's no need for a laptop.  But, there was a plastic half-split plastic table which, after a difficult assembly, I was eventually able to make use of.  It folded out to the full width of 4' feet and required adjusting the legs to rest their laptop on. The chair provided was a metal folding chair. Please see the accompanying PHOTOS as I know this doesn't make much sense. The room was rather tight once the table and chair were put up.   Otherwise, the motel room had a nice ambiance what with the lake there, and it had a nice woodsy Maine theme decoratively. The beds were “plush” as in one would sink into them, which was fine with me. The mattresses on our two beds certainly aren’t what one would call hard or firm.  This Town & Lake Motel seemed fine if one is satisfied lounging on the beds only. The awkward self-assembly table and folding chair, plus the lack of adequate space combined with No Internet for the evening, and morning, meant future hotels-motel bookings, would wait until the next hotel  24 hours later. The digital issues with the TV were certainly annoying.  Yet as New England October leaf hunters (visiting from Minnesota) we are a taken-advantage group that is easy pickings during leaf season. A motel room typically at $129.00 instead is seasonally jacked up to over $190.00. And we leaf hunters have few options. Internet is very much needed for your future stays, meaning finding locations at a price under $300.00. Smartphones are tough with researching hotels on Trip Advisor and finding the best future stay, booking over it, etc. Without that access to promised (paid for) Internet, such as at Rangeley's Town and Lake Motel, is pure bait and switch.

Easy to book, easy to check in, very spacious cabin. Don't expect luxury. Do expect to have a comfortable relaxing stay, with all of what you need, including firewood. Close to town, easy parking, amazing eastern views. Very accommodating for families. We definitely will be back for another family trip.

We had to cancel our reservations the day before our arrival because my wife came down with COVID. We had booked through Booking.com. I called the hotel directly to tell them. They said no problem because they were turning people away. They said they would fully refund me. I called back several days later and they said they couldn't rent it out so they were only going to refund me half of the cost. I have been waiting for 3 months and still haven't received the money back. I have contacted Booking.com several times and they have been calling the hotel but to no avail. Will never do business with this place again.

We called and made a reservation with the owner Joey. We explained we have been here multiple times and would like to book an updated room and saw the price on booking.com was 120$ . Joey said no the price is 175$ I said well ill book through booking. Com.. he said ok I'll give it to you for that .. The next day his very upset wife called and canceled our reservation saying these rooms are 175$ they are luxury rooms .. They most definitely are not luxury rooms they are rooms that were in much need of updating which they did .. Then last week a nurse I work with went here based on my previous years experience and had booked her room online for 100$ when she arrived they gave her a new room( luxury🙄) for 120!!!

Upon our arrival, the woman at the front desk could not find our reservation. She called the owner, and it turns out our reservation was booked for the wrong day. I booked by phone, and when I asked to be emailed a confirmation, I was told they don't do that, and that bookings are done manually. Since the motel was full, we were sent away to find other lodging, made more difficult by the fact that we had two dogs with us. A little attention to detail goes a long way. Very disappointing experience.

We were hesitant to book here after reading the reviews, you either loved it or hated it, but we decided to chance it. We requested a room that had been refurbished. The room was great. They are in the process of renovating, it is a 3 phase renovation. If you want a bargain you can get a room waiting for renovation, or request one that has been completed. Even then the price is right. The view is gorgeous, the room very clean and comfortable. We appreciated having a full kitchen. They had everything we needed. We will definitely stay again if we’re in the area.
