We spent one night here, and can't say we'd do it again. Worn dirty carpets, room had an odd odor like they were trying to cover something up w/ the scent. Broken tiles, bathroom looked tired The primary good thing about the facility is it's close proximity to the ferry back to Portland, may not have been around so long... More

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. This is an older hotel but has been updated since my last visit a few years ago. The best part of the hotel is the people! From the front desk to housekeeping to the restaurant, they were very friendly and helpful. I travelled for business so not a lot of time for 'fun'... More

The hotel location is excellent and we'll within walking distance of many shops, cafés and restaurants. This was my second stay at the hotel and they have made some improvements. My room was clean and well laid out and even had a couple of bottles of local wine on the desk. The staff was friendly and checking in and out... More

I feel like a lot of people on here were too negative about this hotel. I stayed here in June of 2015 and I enjoyed my stay. The pros: The hotel is located downtown and is near restaurants and the ferry terminal, the hotel has a restaurant/bar that serves pretty good breakfast in the morning, they have a unique mini-bar...

The entire hotel experience was great. The room was clean, comfortable bed and the view was beautiful. (Main Street and Harbour) the pricing made the hotel even more attractive. Great service, we will absolutely be coming back to this hotel !

Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location within walking distance of downtown shops, cafés and restaurants. The beds were very comfortable. Although it was a business trip with early mornings it was very relaxing. It is great to be able to walk downtown Or stroll along the water.

This hotel is located close to everything you want to see in Yarmouth. We loved the ferry terminal view from our room. Rooms are clean, spacious, nicely furnished. Some public areas need some updating but overall the hotel is very comfortable and well priced. We will stay here again if we come back to Yarmouth.

The Hotel has good access to everything in the area and now with the Ferry service easy access to the US. We found this Hotel provide a good quality product for the price. The Breakfast is a little over done and when it is very busy not always hot. But over all the service is good.
