The Machias River Inn provides relaxed atmosphere just yards from US 1. Being next to a river basin soothes road weariness. Next door's Helen's Restaurant serves awesome lobster and excellent breakfasts. We stay here anytime we travel through Maine.

Comfortable, clean room. Quiet spot. Friendly, pleasant service. Office is open 24 hours which was great as we arrived late. Scenic spot by the river with lovely view and many species of birds to observe.

Stayed overnight while traveling by motorcycle, super friendly staff at front desk and a nice room with a water view. Room was large and comfortable although the water pressure was very low in the bathroom sink and there wasn't any comfortable chairs for relaxing in the room. Small things but that's the only things I had any issue with. Helens Restaurant is also right beside the hotel,which is an awesome place to eat!

The room was more than adequate for a quick overnight stopover. The late night check-in was appreciated, particularly as there was nothing else open in the region. Waking up to the view of the river was a pleasant bonus

One of my bucket list was to see Quoddy Head Lighthouse, the Easternmost point of the US. So I asked my friend to go on the drive with me. We stayed @ Machias River Inn. We had a view of the river, the room was comfortable, price is right and the lady who checked us in was very nice. There are restaurants near by. And Quoddy Head State Park was an easy drive from Machias. I will definitely stay here again when I am back!

Room Tip: Why ask me about smoking rooms? I ask for non-smoking rooms when I travel.
