The room and staff was fine. The only issue was entering the hotel from the side entrance around 11pm and having to carve a path through 6-8 "interesting" looking smokers.... It did not give us a great first impression of the motel!!

"Black mold"
The bathroom ceiling was covered with black mold. There was also black mold behind the toilet. If you have other options - use them! Do NOT stay here.

"Super8, Much Better Than I Expected!"
I was very pleased with just how nice the hotel room was, it looked like it should've been at least a 3/4 star rated room. The blankets were a little itchy, and there was not enough cups for coffee, and the chair had gross looking stains, but other than those minor details, it was wonderful. I loved the breakfast, and the TV, the shampoo and soap were more than I expected too. Thank You!

The Hotel was clean, had nice amenities, and a pleasant and helpful staff. It was within walking distance to a Super Walmart which I found very convenient. Our room was overlooking Rt 109 but we were never bothered by any traffic noise. The hotel has no elevator and as a senior citizen with a room on the second floor, getting my luggage up the stairs was an issue. I customarily ask for accomodations on the ground floor and made my request two weeks prior to my arrival but no ground floor rooms were available upon arrival. The price paid was very reasonable for the value. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will stay here again when I am in the area.

"Small rooms and cool showers"
Room was very small. There were two of us in a 2 double bed room. Had there been more than 2 we would have been very crowded. Not enough hot water for 2 showers in the morning. TV channel line up did not match what we got on the TV and we wanted to watch the MLB ALCS. I spoke with the front desk and asked for an updated listing and she was unable to provide one. She said the channels are all different and she could not help us. Positives were the fridge and microwave.

"Dissatisfied"
I read the reviews before booking this hotel and was under the impression it was clean. We booked a non smoking room.. and upon entry to the building realized that the hotel was permeated with cigarette smoke. Our non smoking room was located on the second floor. Being hopeful, we unlocked the door and found it slightly less obnoxious. When I say slightly.. I mean, the difference was barely measurable. In addition the sheets were NOT clean, the toilet hadn't been cleaned in some time .. and included hair as did the shower. We opened the window in an attempt to get some fresh air while we slept. Since it was a cold evening in Maine, it was hard to choose freezing or smoke inhalation. We froze.. and left early.. I'm in my forties and have never stayed in a hotel so filthy. Nor will I do so again.

"They should check their rooms before selling!"
Checked into room and the smell of smoke was overwhelming. Unfortunately, it was the only room available. Still acceptable as we knew going in that this was a smoking room. Because of our event, we had to check out of the room extra early. The hotel did not give a wakeup call, even though we had scheduled it. We were denied breakfast because it was too early. Again, fine because we knew we would be early. 4 hours later, I received a call on my cell by an irate person that my room was trashed! They proceeded to charge my credit card a ridiculous charge. I’ve stayed at hundreds of hotel rooms over the years… This is the first time I have ever been scammed by a hotel! I would stay away at all costs! This is just my experience, but can happen to anyone! Good luck!!!

"A bit out of the way, but worth the extra drive."
Prices in that general area are relatively high. Though the Super 8 Motel charged lower prices my wife and I were extremely pleased with the condition of the room and the comfort of the bed. I'm a light sleeper and can be easily awakened by traffic sounds. This was not the case at this location. If you're traveling through that general area we would highly recommend this motel if you're just looking for a place to stay overnight.

"Excellent value"
*prime location; conveniently located adjacent to numerous area tourist attractions and dining destinations. *high quality room; clean, NO SMOKE SMELL (even though we had a smoking room, when i entered the room at the beginning of my stay I had to check and make sure it actually was a smoking room as there was no trace of anyone smoking until i saw the signs on other doors and the ashtrays that came with the room). *high quality amenities; large television, good fridge and microwave and wireless connection especially considering the relatively low price for this room during the busy season (august) *great overall value; if visiting the kennenbunkport/ogunquit area, I highly recommend this location. I chose it as it was relatively cheap compared to most "higher class" maine hotels and was extremely pleasantly surprised, $250/night level quality at a fraction of the cost!

Our room was close to the smoking area of the motel, so it too smelled of smoke, even though it was technically a non-smoking room. Also, I think that people were smoking outside, and the smoke was drawn into the room by the air conditioner. There was a lot of noise and commotion with raised voices in the hallway after midnight. Just as we were going to call the desk or 9-1-1, it got quiet. Frankly, I would hesitate to stay here again.

"It was alright."
I liked the hotel, except for the fact that they charge extra for 2 people staying in a room with two beds, rather than just 1 person staying in a room with two beds. They claim it's a discount for one person, but I think it's just an extra charge for 2 people. Also, our room was nonsmoking, on a nonsmoking floor, but we could still smell the old stench of smoke in the room and surrounding hallway...

"No frills, but spotlessly clean"
This motel is located right on the main road at the far end of the town of Sanford. The back rooms look out on Lowe's and Walmart; the front rooms are right on the road. The place was immaculately clean, and everything functioned perfectly. A romantic country inn getaway it is not, but then again, it is vey reasonably priced. All in all, I felt like we got what we paid for, and it is a clean, well-kept, utilitarian spot to stay when passing through southern Maine.

The room was very clean,very comfortable,WiFi, convenient to stores to grab a bite to eat, great neighborhood and the staff was exceptionally pleasant. I would definitely stay there again, and will recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in that area. Thanks for making our visit a pleasant one. Mary Hynes

"Not as good as it used to be"
I have stayed here a number of times since 1992. The last time was in 2008 and the only change I noticed since 2008 was that the cleanliness of the rooms wasn't as good as it used to be. The first (non-smoking) room we were given smelled of smoke and there was a large chunk of dirt (around 5 by 2 cm or 2 by 3/4 inches) on the bathroom floor. We got another room that was cleaner but there was still some hairs and dirt on the bathroom floor. I would opt to stay at a Hampton Inn or similar further away from Sanford next time I visit Sanford as the standard of the Super 8 has declined.

"Stay away from this hotel!"
We originally book this hotel because it was inexpensive and thought it should be ok for only a one night stay. BIG MISTAKE. The hotel booked us in a 2nd floor. There were no elevator. As we lug our belongings to our 2nd floor room, we can smell people has been smoking in the hallway. Our room also smell of cigarette smoke (even though we specifically requested non-smoking room). For some reason, there is a strong curry smell at one end of the hallway which my wife and kids noticed also. We demanded another room on the 1st floor because of the smell. Our bathroom tub looks dirty and was stained. The room has a damp smell. The air conditioning was noisy. The TV remote control low in battery. Fluorescent lights in bathroom flickers. Curtains cannot be closed. Bed cover ripped. We can hear people walking upstairs. The complementary breakfast was a joke. Just 3 tables in the lobby next to the entrance doorway. Not much to choose from for breakfast. The fruits was hidden away on the check-in counter top. Very unfriendly front desk attendant in the morning (I guess he is the owner). You get what you pay for! Be forewarned!
