Houlton Maine is not a crowded area. Not jammed 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 demand 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.

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 as much shows up for motels, lodging options. Plus the price you pay is not going to get much help to lower it if using your Priceline, Expedia and other third party lodging dot coms designed to negotiate the rate down.
