Terrific little hotel in an amazing town. Clean and tidy, good beds, small but suitable shower closet. Right in the main street, walk to everywhere. Plenty of parking boith on and off street. Operators were very communicative.

This was the cleanest motel I have ever stayed at. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room had everything we needed, including a corkscrew, coffee maker with the accessories needed and comfy beds. I can't imagine a better place to stay on the island!

We stayed 3 nights here and loved every minute. Great location, a stone's throw from the sea front. The room was compact but had everything we needed and the most comfortable bed of our 10 week road trip so far! The owner, Barrett, was so helpful, giving us lots of information when we arrived regarding places to visit, local walks... More

We loved Stonington and our 2-day stay there. The owner of Boyce's Motel is a very friendly guy, extremely helpful and with a sense of humor. Ok, it's not as if you'd have much choice regarding hotels - especially not in late October - but we would recommend to stay at this motel as it is very charming.

We did a quick stopover on Deer Isle on the recommendation of a friend during our Canada/Maine road trip and found this little place in off-the-charts charming Stonington, online, before we left. Glad we booked because it was sold out mid-week, even in late September. Owner/manager Barrett was nice as can be, and super responsive to any and all communications... More

While the accomodation is a tad small, the beds were firm, but OK and it was very clean. The owner was very friendly and provided lists of local restaurants including a discount at one. The location is right along the waterfront and there is a place to sit and view the harbor that Boyce's owns. A good value in a... More

I can't say anything bad about Boyce's Motel - not that I would want to. The whole place has a slightly rickety eclectic feel that made me comfortable, unstressed and at home. I stayed in number 10 which is a sort of gazebo with a lovely view of the sea.The owner and staff were perfectly charming and helpful. If you... More

We loved this place it's right out of the 50's/60's, a time warp, an authentic piece of Americana. A wonderful value for a vacationing family. The 9 hole golf course, The Island Country Club, nearby was pristine.

Stonington, Maine and Boyce's Motel were my favorite places on our trip to Maine and Boston. I love the quaint fishing village of Stonington. My kids went swimming for hours at the beach down the road from the motel. We had delicious blueberry ice cream in town. Boyce's Motel is such a neat place. The flowers are beautiful near each...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Boyce's Motel is located in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Stonington. From our harbor side dock you can watch the lobstermen head out to sea early in the morning before the sun comes up to haul their lobster traps and then enjoy the afternoon soaking in the sun while watching the lobstermen return with their days catch. Stonington is the largest lobster port on the coast of Maine. Our beautiful island offers guests a great place to unwind and relax. There are day trips to Isle au Haut which is part of Acadia National Park, numerous hiking trails are scattered around the island, as are many beaches for beach combing. Boyce's is within walking distance of many restaurants and the Stonington Opera House. We look forward to welcoming you! ... more   less
