Stayed here for 10 days while on business trip. The couple that owns/runs motel are perfect hosts. Very friendly but never pushy or bothersome. The cleanliness was second to none, squeaky clean. Very quiet location, with numerous TV stations, fridge, micro, table even paper plates, utensils and glasses. City center only about 10 minutes away. Would always stay here when...

It's gratifying for us to read your comments about the little extras that we try to provide at our "boutique motel". We may not have a pool or restaurant that you would find at the big chains mentioned, but we can certainly provide a...

While on route to visit the Oxford Casino we were finding it difficult to find a place to stay, when we came upon this motel. At first we thought it a little pricey, but were pleasantly surprised with all the additional amenities. It had dishes, a microwave and refrigerator and even long stem wine glasses. Since we had leftovers with...

The owner of Sleepy Time was so friendly and welcoming! He showed us our room. It was clean, cozy, and had a rocker which was so comfortable! The room had a refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, coffee cups and other things like napkins, paper plates, cups, etc., and it felt like home! When I looked at the book kept in...

My mom booked this room as we were visiting my grandfather at a senior living facility in the area. We pulled up after dark and I was a little concerned due to first impressions....which were incredibly wrong! The owner was so friendly and showed us to our room which was simply adorable. It was clean, well stocked (even with little...

We traveled to Maine for a College Tour of Colby, Bates and Bowdoin. I was drawn to the Sleepy Time Motel on Tripadvisor because of the outstanding reviews from their customers. It is a quaint 6 unit motel that will take you back in time. You can see that Lynn and Mark have pride in ownership because the rooms and...

We came to Maine for a week of house hunting and wanted to stay away from the chain hotels that are very impersonal. We chose the Sleepy Time Motel because of the wonderful reviews we read about it.......and were not disappointed. This 6 room motel is VERY clean, has great beds and linens, flat screen TV with plenty of channels...

Fantastic! First time I've stayed at a motel where they had paper plates / bowls, large beverage cups, plastic utensils, napkins, even wine glasses for fridge & microwave items. Huge room, comfortable beds, nice bedding. Great value!

We just finished a 5 night stay at the Sleepy Time. The room was absolutely spotless, I think this was the cleanest room I've ever stayed in at any price point. The beds were comfortable. Overall this is a terrific value. The proprietors live on site and really care out about the property and their guest. Highly recommend!
