You are after a motel room, a place to stay in Houlton Maine, in Southern Aroostook County.
But look, wait, something is missing. Where are all the familiar chains for a place to lay your head, to get off the highway for some shut eye. Didn't anyone offer to leave the light on for you?
Houlton Maine, a place on the map at the beginning of Interstate 95 and at the cross roads of US Rt 1, 2, 2A.
But this blog post is designed to help you see the options for your stay no matter how long in Houlton Maine.
Houlton Maine is not a crowded area with too many people or lots of traffic or crime. That's a good thing.
But with those elements missing, with just less folks needing the motel room it means less choices in places to stay for motel rooms, a cabin for the night or place to park your camper trailer.
Other things too drop off in supply because there is not the high demand. We are a little ways off the beaten path.
In large population center, there are lots of motel rooms, places to stay and that's just the expectation when you are in a hurry. It is what you are used to in large urban areas where eight out of ten people live.
Motel rooms pop up everywhere online, in tourist information center lodging hand outs.
But in small rural Maine towns and the handful of cities in an underpopulated state, good luck. Not much shows up for motels, lodging options and the price you pay is not going to get much help if any from your Priceline, Expedia and other dot coms designed to negotiate the rate down.
