Glad so many liked this spot and reluctant to be critical of a stand alone operation that appears to be a labor of love - but .... The décor of my room was ridiculously and cheaply over the top. Tastes differ, so if 3 large faux flower arrangements and useless decorative pillows are your thing, this is your spot. That... More

lacks, Owner at Claddagh Motel & Suites, responded to this review

Thank you for staying at the Claddagh Motel. We are disappointed that you weren't happy with your accommodation. You had the option to take a room down the back away from the road and you declined stating you were happy enough with this room after I showed it to you and you didn't want to see any others. Our motel... More

We recently stayed just one night at this great motel. We were so impressed with the cleanliness of the room. While the motel is near the road, you hear no noise in your room. A continental breakfast was included, and we weren't really expecting much. Boy, were we surprised! There was fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, scones, muffins and pastries. You... More

The proprietor, Alex, truly went the extra mile for us during our stay. The mere mention of a minor irregularity and he was immediately ON it! The décor is Irish kitsch and our room had everything we could want; comfortable bed, ample pillows, mini-fridge, AC, flat screen TV, fresh towels...breakfast was coffee, OJ, eggs, scones, bagels, pastries, cereal.

We stayed here on our way up to Bar Harbor and couldn't have made a better choice. The owners are from Ireland and the decorations around the place certainly highlight their heritage. They were delightfully pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They even had a full size coffee pot in the room. A free continental breakfast... More

I spend a lot of time on the road in many different hotels and I've spent way more and not been nearly as satisfied as I am with this place. The rooms are clean and well decorated and the owners are a delight. It's location is perfect for a Mid Coast Maine getaway. 5 just isn't a high enough rating!

Great little family owned and operated motel in Rockport right off route 1. My second stay. We came here about 3 years ago and found the place charming, clean and comfortable. Amenities include a clean, kidney shaped, pool, lots of areas to grill outside with seating. Rooms have flat screen tv, mini fridge and free wifi. The room we like... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Claddagh. Alex and Siobhan are delightful and they made us feel very welcome during our visit. Our room was meticulously clean and comfortable with recently installed air conditioner and bath/shower. We slept like logs in this quiet setting. Very comfortable bed!

I had a recent vacation to Maine coast with my 2 adult daughters & 19 yr old Grandaughter. Gramma (me) made all the hotel reservations. I was a bit hesitant about Claddagh as it appeared to have rather dated decor in photos. Lots of flowery prints-not my kids style. We had a 2 bedroom cottage with kitchenette. My girls walked...

When I saw this place on TripAdvisor the Irish in me couldn't resist booking a room here, and I'm so glad I did! It is the cutest place ever.

This place is more like a bed and breakfast motel style. First the owners are adorable and friendly. The continental breakfast was yummy. The rooms are spacious and clean and adorable with mini fridge, tv and working wifi. Would totally stay again.
