A motel to avoid

Do yourself a favor and avoid the Abbington Cottages in Lincolnville just north of Camden. This is not just a Downeast Maine rustic motel, it is sub-standard at best. It would be overpriced at half the advertised price. The cottage I was assigned was in dis-repair, with well worn linens (not sure they were clean), window coverings that did not cover the window, a security dead-bolt lock which was keyed on the outside (someone on staff has the key----hello! have you heard of the Bates Motel?). Why did I stay??? It had been a very long day and I needed a place to put my head. Also, when I made the reservation I was immediately charged, so it was prepaid. That prepayment was a mistake I will never make again. Sure they want you to prepay, otherwise you would cancel and go down the road a mile or some to a more desireable accomodation.

Sorry to hear that.

Your review would probably be more helpful to others if you posted it on the Motel's page here on Trip Advisor:
