Made a reservation for two nights for my granddaughter and I. Receptionist on the phone was very pleasant. Arrived about 4PM. Was skeptical when I entered the lobby, quite smokey and cluttered. The view was beautiful. Went to room 13. It was very dirty. Picked up, no clutter but dirty. Arms of chair were very soiled. Smelled smokey, the screen...

We loved staying at Motel East!!! The hotel is in a perfect location and has a beautiful view! Every room has a balcony view of the ocean. (We stayed on the second floor). The hotel is right in town so all the restaurants, shops and piers are within walking distance. You can sit on your balcony and watch boats go...

We walked into our room, and the first thing we noticed was a filthy rug. We spent our time making sure we weren't barefoot. The microwave was filthy and loaded with fingerprints. The freezer was so iced up you couldn't use it if you wanted too. Also the drop rug in the bathroom was extremely dirty, and the bedspread was...

We stayed there 2 weeks ago and loved watching the whales from the balcony and walking to the seafood place at the pier next door for lobster rolls. Excellent location and within easy walking distance to everything on Water Street. The room was very clean and we had no complaints regarding cleanliness. If you are looking for upscale digs, forget...

Stayed at this motel recently. Shower curtain was full of black mold and the tub looked dirty. Went to reheat coffee in the microwave and when I opened the door the inside was covered with dried stuck on food. If we would of noticed this the night before we would not have stayed. Spoke to the owner in the morning...

Even though this place sits on the water and has a great review, I can't recommend it. Huge room, with 2 nice wingback chairs. Both chairs and the carpet were mightily stained. Chairs were apparently old as they sunk way in, I had to add a pillow. It did come with micro, fridge, and flat screen. Some of the front...

You can walk to most anywhere you want to and have a front row view of the bay. The rooms are huge. The interior is an average, older motel. Ripped screens, older bedding, clean carpets, no coffee anywhere. But we slept well and had plenty of hot water and walked to "al fresco" lobster next door.

We've stayed here many times, starting 20 yrs ago, I don't think they've bought any bedding or towels since then. We won't stay there anymore, due to mold, bugs, Bedbugs, holes in the screens and general filthy conditions. This is unfortunate, Eastport is a lovely town, and this is the only motel. Eastport is loosing a lot of visitors, it's...
