Staff like family, when you first encounter them on check in you get the feeling of family. Rooms are clean, food exceptional , service as good or better than the bigger chains. Make this a stop on your visit, stay and get that great service we all deserve.

Stayed one night during Seafest , had very comfy bed with great pillows! Very nice helpful staff.This location so convenient to waterfront activities and restaurants with wonderful menus. Walking trails thru this beautiful town full of history, just wish I had stayed longer. Only issue was stained carpet in room and faucets that didn't work well.will definitely return .

Dated decor so if that bothers you you're in the wrong place but if you're reasonable I think the old style has a classy feel to it. The service of all the staff is excellent and I would stay here again. The poo, gym and hot tub/sauna were all clean and well cared for. The bar is pretty decent for... More

We stayed one night prior to our journey back on the Yarmouth to Maine ferry. The hotel was clean and value for money. We ate in the hotel restaurant which was nearly empty and lacked any atmosphere, however, the waitress was very friendly and the food was good.

I found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel was very clean and they were doing some upgrading on the 3rd floor. The pool was nice except it could have been a lot warming it was very cold not like a heated pool should be. I found the town to be... More

This hotel obviously was allowed to get run down. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. It is too bad they built the hotel the way they did in 1967. A old historic hotel stood on the same spot, but burned down in the 60's. If I owned the RODD I would close it and complete the renovations... More

Located downtown, we had the pleasure of a harbour view room with a King bed. Although this hotel is older, they have done a great job of keeping it up to date and above all CLEAN!! We totally enjoyed our stay. We purchased the B&B package and it was well worth it!!

Let me start by saying the staff was fine and there were no issues with my booking. I don't wish to condemn the fine people that work in this hotel because they are doing the best they can with what they have. The facility is in desperate need of a remodel and I don't mean some paint and carpet. This... More
