So refreshing to stay at a family owned and operated small drive up motel. We love this style of motel. The owner and wife were very helpful in recommending places to see during our travels in Maine. He also sent us to a very nice pub in town. We had a very nice, comfortable and clean room. It was an...

We stayed here for one night it was good, its an older motel we could hear the people next door when they moved into their room, but the rooms are all one level which is nice. The continental breakfast was great and the location is good, about five miles from the scenic town of Belfast, and close o a really...

The room was great. The outside was nice, but nothing to make you say wow. But the room was better then we expected. It was clean room, it appeared it might have been upgraded recently. The bed and pillows feels great. Thanks again.

We were looking all up the coast for motels along rt 1. We finally settled on the Yardam on whim..and we're so glad we did. We arrived late and the lovely owner was so polite and kind, and above and beyond friendly. She promptly got our key, gave us the wifi info, showed us to our room, explained the breakfast...

Initially, I was disappointed that the Bait's Motel was full when I tried to make a reservation....but now I'm sold on the Yardarm! For a couple of dollars more, you get to have breakfast in a lovely window surrounded sunny breakfast room. The owner is very generous with her time, and relating the history of the property, and just general...

Once again the Yardarm came through! Last minute reservation was graciously accepted during an extremely busy time of year. Have stayed here before and will always return. Nice mid-coast location and convenient to coastal venues. No frills, but provides all the necessities for a clean, safe, and quiet environment. Wonderful selection for morning meal in the breakfast room!

Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating and the room was clean and charming. The windows faced the woods in back and the front windows and door led out to the porch so there was a nice cross-breeze without the air conditioner or fan running. It was remarkably quiet for a place where the guests drive right up to the...

Spent a couple of nights in the Yardarm Motel using it as our base to move up and down the coastline. Clean and convenient and healthy breakfasts after all the lobster! Were originally booked in another hotel that unfortunately cancelled our reservation. The Yardarm Motel did not disappoint at all.

Searsport doesn't get many tourists (we were asked what attracted us to the place), so this motel's income can't be large. So some items of "ordinary" maintenance have to be deferred. Our room had a screen door (a nice amenity), but the screen needed replacing. Since the room backed to a woods, we were able to open the bathroom window...

I really liked the rooms at this place - they have the original pine paneled walls and cool enameled walls in the bathrooms. The furniture is modern, but appropriate to the tone of the place. The bed was quite comfortable, and the rooms spotless. I arrived late, and the lights were left on for me. There's a little TV I...

“Rooms with higher numbers are closer to the office... the lower the number, the farther away you'll be! The rooms are backed up against the woods.. open the window for a nice fresh breeze without using the AC.”

“We had the room right next to the office and thought it wold be loud, but it was really quiet. It does not face the road so that may cut down on the road noise seeing as it is quite close to the roadway and lots of large trucks use the road.”
