There isn't much choice for lodging in Houlton, Maine, and this seems to be the best. Quiet. WiFi worked fine. They were prepared for winter weather. The young man at the front desk was very nice and helpful! Breakfast was so-so, but at least they served something! Owner should replace the OLD waffle maker before OSHA slaps him with a...

Stayed here after crossing the border back into the U.S. Internet did not work in our room and the man at the front desk didn't really seem to care. Room was fine otherwise and the pub food was decent.

Don't plan on checking out early if you make a reservation at this place. Was in town to do a job. Made a reservation for 3 night. Checked in, all was fine. The next day we finished the job early. Went back to the hotel at 5 pm. Asked for an early check out the next day. Was told they...

We certainly welcome feedback from all visitors to our establishment. It has come to our attention that the writer of this review has misrepresented himself as a guest of our hotel, instead having been written secondhand by a local patron of our pub who was particularly moved by a complaint heard from our actual guest. Reviews that are not first...

We arrived in the dark, tired and just wanting a nice clean room with a good bed, a hot shower and breakfast, before hitting the road in the morning. We found it, plus a very nice surprise- a little pub with friendly people, great service and very good filling food for a late night supper. Future road trips will make...

Ivey's was the best stay of our recent trip ! Right off I-95 with close access to New Brunswick, Canada. Stay was delightful due to comfortable beds, cleanliness, access, smoke free (entire lodge), Irish pub for food and frolic, et al. We arrived just in time for cocktail hour. Wife had a "Mud Slide" - quite a preparation to make...

This hotel is located just across the New Brunswick border, in Houlton, Maine. Very comfortable and clean. Close to the Canadian border, which makes it nice for visitors to the USA. Breakfast was included in the cost and they offered a nice variety of food. They also offer a discount for AAA/CAA members!

We often stop at Ivy's and this time took our dog. She is large and there was no problem with her staying at this hotel. If you plan to take your dog, book well in advance. They only have a few dog friendly rooms. The pub on the premises has good food. They will soon have an exercise room.
