Featured Place to Stay: Navigator Motor Inn

Many people like to stay in a more casual hotel/motel. I, myself, am often among this group. I like B&B's very much, but sometimes it's nice just to throw your bags in and crash in a more informal anonymous sort of way.

On my trip last year I stayed several times at the Navigator between sailings. This is a nice, basic and well kept motor inn right on the main street of Rockland. It has friendly staff and a good restaurant/bar. Some local folks hang out in the bar area, making for a very "real" atmosphere.

I came in by bus the first trip and the Navigator is directly across the street. You can see the harbor pretty clearly from the front rooms on the upper floors, and there are a few exterior drive up rooms with outside doors. The Navigator is the closest major lodging to the North End Shipyard Schooners ( A. Eagle, Heritage, I. E. Evans.) NAVIGATOR MOTOR INN LINK

Navigator looks good, I have not stayed there but have thought of it. Another good place in Rockland is the Tradewinds, {further south, more towards the center part of the harbor. Their website is
www.tradewindsmaine.com or can be reached by phone @800-834-3130. Other places I have stayed are the Schooner Bay Motor Inn in Rockport and the Towne Motel in Camden
