Intense and severe lightning storm tonight! Hotels in next town have lost power and are trying to find alternate accommodations for their guests. Luckily we still have power. Heavy rain and wind accompanied storm. All we need is a fireplace and some ...
Awoke this morning to fog yet warm. Fog didn't start to burn off until noon. It's 1645, 83 degrees, hazy, sunny and humid. Difficult to tour around in the fog. Looked around rockland a little more than went to Camden. Kim laying down, still not well. Enuf said. Stay tuned for pics ...
I did not write yesterday, nothing much to report. This morning we drove in the RAIN to rockland. Kim printed off directions from google maps and the GPS was secondary. E GPS kept telling us to exit and take secondary roads then get back on the highway. We followed the signs, thought we were lost just outside boston and pulled off to get directions. We weren't lost....just didn't go far enough. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Claddagh Motel & Suites Rockport
Maine's Best Kept Secret - The Claddagh Motel has it all and one could not ask for better hosts than Alex and Siobhan. The Claddagh is not your average motel and in fact the word "motel" does not do this home away from home, any justice at all. We stayed in one of their suites for a long weekend in September 2006, which included two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and sun lounge, all beautifully decorated in New England style. Everything was so cozy, comfortable and clean. In addition, the outdoor heated swimming pool fully equipped with fresh towels was an added bonus and furthermore, breakfast included a real pot of tea and fresh scones. Our stay at the Claddagh was certainly a memorable one. So, whatever your pleasure and your destination is Maine, the Claddagh Motel is a must. We'll definitely be back. Two Thumbs Up!
Home from home
Had a really really lovely 2 week family holiday in a suite on the edge of the ocean with Alex and Siobhan - it sure is different to Texas!
Oustanding location close to the sea, lovely pool and really lovely walks close by. What really stands out is the warmth and hospitality of the team that owns and runs the motel and really made for a relaxing holiday in a lovely part of the world.
If you want a place to unwind and experience good old fahsioned hospitality I cannot think of a better location.
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful
My family just returned today after staying at the Claddagh for three nights in one of their waterfront houses. I cannot say enough about the wonderful hospitality from the owners, Alex and Siobhan. I have stayed at many rental properties and have not found a place that had everything, and was so clean. This house has a beautiful view overlooking the water, and a short walk to enjoy the motel's heated pool. We could not have asked for more and we are already talking about returning next year. You and your family will have no complaints here!
what is it with these small hotels/motels in holiday areas? I too live in a holiday area, however I had to travel to Camden/Rockport area at the last minute. There really are no "chain' hotels in the area. I called the "claddagh" where I asked about any vacancies for the w/e. He told me he had fri/sat/sun free. I said I was delighted to take fri and sat. He said I had to take all three. When I asked about the off months if it was always 3 days he said he was in Florida in the sun and didn't care. More fool him. What goes around comes around...........
Our family just returned from visiting Maine's mid-coast region including Acadia National Park from July 19-25, 2006. One of the highlights of our trip was a six-night stay at the Claddagh Motel and Suites in Rockport.
Best Lodging in Camden area!
I have stayed in the Claddagh Suites for the past three summers. I simply wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Camden area. The proprietors of the motel/suites are lovely people, and really take the time to get to know their guests and show them some genuine hospitality. Likewise, their staff are exceptionally friendly and accommodating and treat you like family. The rooms are great, the pool is inviting. They serve Irish breakfast scones every morning. What else can you ask for?
A great place to stay. this is my motel of choice when visiting the Rockport/Rockland/ Thomaston area
We recently made a visit to Maine and as our work was near Rockport we stayed at Claddagh Motel & Suites. We have stayed at many other inns and hotels before but Claddagh is far above in all respects - be it in Irish hospitality of Alex and Siobhan be it in in cleanliness or be it in comfort. We have stayed both in their duoble and triple room ( which in fact can sleep four)
A True Gem
When we were looking for a place to stay in Rockport, Maine, our friends recommended this motel. What a pleasant surprise. The rooms are decorated each in their own unique way, tasteful, clean, and comfortable. The owners couldn't be more pleasant. The entire property is neat and well maintained. There are plenty of towels and chairs around the heated and spotless pool. A really great experience!!
