Stayed here one night and was very happy with our stay. Very clean and quiet. Wish the door had a chain or deadbolt, that's just me. Siobhan was very friendly and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Would recommend this motel to anyone.

We arrived late but were made to feel very welcomed nonetheless. The room is very clean & charming. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the adirondack chairs in front of each room as it was raining. The manager was fun & friendly (both in my phone call) & in person. Husband says coffee in reception area was great & we...

First vacation in many years, stopped in hoping there was a room available. The clerk was able to get a room for three days and tried to get a room for me to be able to stay longer. I will make be making reservations to stay again soon.

This is the first time our family has stayed at the Cook's Island View Motel. Very cute island design. Clean and crisp! Very friendly staff! The out door pool looked inviting, however the weather was less than desirable. It rained unfortunately during our stay and we were unable to use the pool. You park right in front of your room....

First of many visits to this lovely motel with its friendly staff and wonderful owners. I was visiting my grandchildren that live in the area and staying here was a perfect motel for a family vacation. The staff are very welcoming and want to ensure you enjoy your stay. Great choice for vacation in a great location.

The first time we stayed here was 48 years ago. Needless to say the new owners greatly improved and updated the motel and continue to do so. The rooms are great and have a microwave and small refridgerator. There is also a small table with 2 chairs. There is coffee and juice available in the morning. The beds are comfortable...

We have stayed here before under different management. We love Bailey Island and have stayed at two other places on the Island on a total of five occasions. . We were going to be in Brunswick, so we had to stay on Bailey Island. The rooms are simple, clean and spacious. I interacted with two different staff members, each of...

We are sorry for the confusion. Our rates are clearly posted and you were charged the correct rate. We do have varying rates for weekdays, weekends, and prime season so being human, a mistake is possible. Our staff should have re-written the reservation slip so that it was perfectly clear and without changes. Being the busy season, however, sometimes errors...

Having stayed at the Cooks Island View Motel 4 years ago, we decided to stay there once more on our vacation along the Maine Coast. This is an older motel of the type typical before the advent of chain hotels and such. It has a unique charm that is lost with today's sterile, modern facilities. The receptionist at the front...

During a brief 2 day stay this was the PERFECT place to stay. Was very happily surprised to get a room here since I only made the reservation the day before my stay. Staff was great and very helpful. The room was so very nice. Will definitely be coming back to stay here for my next Maine stay. 😊

We came up Columbus Day weekend and stayed at Cooks. The motel is very cozy and well kept. It is within walking distance of Cedar Beach - a must go to when visiting Bailey Island, no matter what season.
