Towne Motel is a friendly small motel with a B&B personality, just a five minute stroll away from downtown Camden and its picturesque harbor in Penobscot Bay. We offer super clean rooms, great rates, retro charm combined with modern amenities, and a delicious home-baked continental breakfast. Enjoy one of the most beautiful Maine coastal villages without sticker shock!

This was a great place to stay. Very nice rooms which were very clean and had very comfortable beds. It is within walking distance of downtown Camden. They have a cozy breakfast room. The experience that stands out was on our second morning as we got to the breakfast room. A

When I booked our reservations for The Towne Motel, I had some doubts about whether it was a good choice. We hadn't stayed in a motor court style motel in a long time, and frankly, I was a bit apprehensive about it. But fear not, The Towne Motel is a fun find and I predict you

The Towne Motel in Camden is a great hideaway. Just a short walk to town it is a great location. No ocean views, but quiet and comfortable. The proprietors are lovely. They have created a bed and breakfast feel to this hip travel lodge. Super clean with some of the most

Thank you so much for your kind review, MK! (We’re pretty sure we know who you are!) That was a nice holiday treat in our mailbox this morning. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, especially the bed, location, and the cleanliness of your room! And of course, it’s always lovely to be called lovely.😊 A word about ocean / harbor views in Camden:only a handful of properties downtown have them, mostly because of Camden’s location around a relatively narrow harbor. Thanks again, and thanks very much for staying with us twice this year!

Friendly, clean and so much more than a normal motel. Very close to the city centre, and great value. The breakfast is simple and there is limited space in the dining area, but we simply took it to our room. Would certainly go again

Thanks very much for your “so much more” review! That was a nice surprise. Yes, we‘re probably not a “typical” Motel: like our predecessors, we like to make the guest experience a bit more hybrid, like a mix of Motel and B&B. We are small, almost downtown, and don’t have managers running the place; we are here ourselves, doing a bit ( or a lot!) of everything, including bake and make all the breakfast goodies. (Yes, it’s a continental breakfast, but it’s all home baked from scratch). Our breakfast rooms look more like those in a B&B because they’re inside our 1850s home. True, they are a bit small if everyone comes at the same time, but usually it works out since not everyone comes ( some leave early, some want a full breakfast downtown, and others prefer to be outside or in their rooms) or stays for a long time. We do have a plan to improve the layout and expand on the offerings a bit for the next season! And finally, we have been renovating the rooms gradually, and the ones we have finished are all a little different from each other. Thank you so much for the feedback, and for staying with us!

Thank you very much for your fun review and kind words, and for having become such a loyal repeat visitor! We’re glad you appreciate our comfortable Beautyrest mattresses, the home baked breakfast pastries, and our B&B personality ( without the usually much higher B&B prices!). We enjoyed all the details you included in this review, and loved your description of Camden: yes indeed, it’s like walking in a postcard! Next time you stay, we will have some additional improvements, including more renovated rooms (with hairdryers in each of them) and hopefully we will move up to five stars from you then! 🙂
