"Smelled of Smoke"
The entire upstairs smelled like smoke! Our clothes reeked when we got home. Also, the desk attendant/owner made a statement about how busy they were that night and implied that it was a real bother to have to open up the extra rooms upstairs.

"Nice people"
The motel room clean, warm, hot water real good, towels delivered daily. Now comfort of bed, lumpy. Hurt my back. Pillows were feather pillows and just sank to nothing when you put your head on it. No phone in room. Alarm clock not working.

"Turnpike Motel"
The room was clean and fairly quiet. We had the turnpike on one side and the exit ramp on the other. At no time was the noise bothersome. The hallway smelled fairly strongly of cooking but it didn't enter the room. The outside staircase didn't have a light and that meant some care in climbing the stairs. We could have used the inside staircase but chose not to do so. The curtains were very thin and didn't stop any light so we used a bedspread to cover it so we didn't wake with the sun. the toilet and shower were in a separate small room, not much space, but adequate. In spite of how it sounds we had a comfortable room, but think I'd spend a little more next time for something a bit better. I got what I paid for.

"Humble but pleasant."
The motel was in an old style - rather quirky- but it was clean and comfortable and flowers were planted all around. Not cheap, but compared to other Kennebunk options, a bargain. Staff was helpful and pleasant - providing an iron when asked (no ironing board, but we managed). The building was caught between an Interstate and its toll plaza, so it was pretty noisy, but a front yard of trees and grass and picnic tables and planters of flowers mitigated the effect.

"Quaint hotel in the woods"
After our cruise was cancelled, we decided to tour New England by car to view the Fall foliage. Kennebunk was our first stop and the Turnpike Motel was the most wallet friendly hotel we had viewed on Expedia. The outside of the hotel was clean and it reminded me of motels we used to stop at 50 years ago. The surprise was in how comfortable and clean the room was and the helpfulness of the woman at the front desk.

"Satisfactory"
A no-frills, clean, neat room in a convenient location. Yes, it's practically *on* the highway, but the traffic is actually white noise that certainly didn't keep us awake. Proximity to a pleasant neighborhood where we could walk the two dogs we were travelling with (which is why we ended up staying here. Affordable, pet friendly accommodations are not easy to find.) For the money, we were satisfied.

"Ended up not staying here once I got a look at it"
The owner was very nice and let me look at an upstairs room - she said the downstairs rooms would be too "smelly" since i asked for a non-smoking room. After viewing the room I chose not to stay. It is literally on the turnpike and looked like it would be pretty noisy. On drive-up, it looks like one of those motels that caters to people that lack stable housing. It seemed clean enough and parts of it looked updated, but overall quite tired and sad looking.

"Easy on & off the turnpike"
My overall experience was pleasant. Was impressed with the cleanliness of the room, although the furniture was somewhat 70's, the beds, pillows & linens were very comfy and clean. My only complaint is that the shower head was a bit too conservative, making washing long hair a long process.

"No thank you."
I don't have very high hotel standards, but this place was a dive. The sheets were old and had a funny smell. The place is just old and run down. It is really close to the turnpike (as mentioned in other reviews), but this didn't actually bother me much. I thought the worst part was the service! The lady at the front desk was about as rude as could be :{ I was completely taken back when she started snapping at me right of the bat. I spend the extra bucks on a nicer place if I was you.

"Very close to interstate!"
This hotel is located right between the interstate and the toll booth. Highway noise! The check-in was interesting because the lady at the counter didn't understand English. I had to write down my name so she could match the reservation. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom had no vent fan though, so we needed to open the bathroom window to allow the steam to escape.

The location was convenient, right next to the turnpike. If your easily disturbed by traffic noise, this wouldn't be the place for you. I'll be back.

A friend was having their wedding at a resort in town and rooms were $450 a night. This motel was only six miles away, so I was fine saving the money staying here. However, the first room I was in was filthy and old and not updated. The second room, with the king bed, was much better.

"Bring your own bedding"
Otherwise room was clean. Weird bad smell in hallway when you walk by,that any normal owner would have rectified at this point. Stay on the second floor if u have a choice because of the turnpike noise, you have the hallway that gives you a little buffer. Sturdy vintagy furniture and everything was working, but tacky with newer purple art for example. Handy little fridge and old tv, but it works. Mattress would not be accepted at Salvation Army, bedding cheap, old and awful. I wouldn't stay here with my girlfriend.

"It served its purpose"
Since we weren't expecting a lot, we basically got what we paid for. It wasn't extremely close to our target area, but closer hotels were much more pricey. We didn't find noise to be a problem at all. It worked out fine for us, but we probably wouldn't recommend it to friends. It could be a very cute place, but is generally in need of repair.

"Not bad, but probably never again"
First reaction to the place? "OH HECK NO!" The place looked old and just... off. There was an old, closed up smell in the hall and I was sure the room was going to be horrible. But I was wrong. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean, the sheets were clean and the room smelled fine. I'd probably pick something a bit nicer if I'm ever in that area again though. It was nice that it was right off the highway and we didn't really hear the trucks go by at all.

"Nice stay. Why pay more?"
The motel room had the A/C when I got there. The room includes a mini fridge. The bathroom had shampoo (unlike Motel 6). It's right off the highway, but in a residential area so you will have to drive to get food. Noise from the nearby highway wasn't bad, but I'd suggest to bring earplugs. I would stay there again.

"Motel direkt neben dem Highway"
Man hätte es sich denken können, dass es direkt neben dem Interstate-Highway ziemlich laut sein würde, das war dann auch so. Der Service ist sehr unkompliziert und man ist sehr hilfreich. Es ist alles soweit sauber, die Decken und das Bettzeug haben aber schon ein beträchtliches Alter und sind nicht sehr angenehm. Als Übernachtungsstation vor der Weiterreise kann man es akzeptieren.
