Management is rude! Their customer service is horrible. Rooms are dingy. I have never been to a hotel where any interaction with staff they come off with an attitude like you are bothering them. I will NEVER stay here again.

The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and attentive. Don't expect fancy or luxurious. But, it is neat, and the suites are spacious. The free breakfast is excellent, too.

We live in Pittsburgh and every year we drive to Maine for a week or so. It's too long a drive to do all at once so we find an intermediate stop in each direction, usually determined by what the museums along the alternative routes are offering. A frequent stop coming back is to visit the wonderful Yale Art Gallery... More

My son and I stayed here for a baseball tournament in the area. This hotel is fairly old, and it shows. It has an odd layout. The lobby is on the 3rd floor, and you go down to the 2nd and 1st floors. The layout is maze-like, and the hallways are extremely narrow. There is no ice or vending machines... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here with our nephew while we moved to Connecticut and I was glad to leave. Very disappointed by the cleanliness of the property as many have stated already. Mold growing in the shower and that was about it for me. Pool looked oddly cloudy when we arrived and then the next day it... More

I came up from Florida for a family reunion and stayed at this hotel. First, the room had dirty carpets and a broken lamp, and one of the bed sheets looked like it had a stain on it, so we asked to switch to another room. The second room, unfortunately, was worse. • First, there was some type of animal... More

I flew in from CA and my brother who shared the room with me flew in from FL. The reason for the trip was to celebrate my 60th BD and have a family reunion. The room was booked in advance for July 1st - 9th and it was paid in advance by my mother as a BD gift. My brother... More

There was a horrible storm and our power went out so we needed somewhere to go at short notice. This was a quick option and it was decent place for such short notice. The staff was very friendly and helped us a great deal. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The kids were happy and felt safe... More

Terrific pet friendly hotel. Great accommodations for pets and their people. Exit directly to pet area from room. Nice grassy area right outside your private door. They even provide scoopy bags. Staff was excellent, welcoming and accommodating throughout the stay.. Highly recommended.

After several attempts to reach other local hotels & getting no response, we pulled over for gas right off the highway. Right a crossed was this conveniently located hotel with very welcoming and pleasant staff. We were able to get accommodations right away at a very reasonable price including continental breakfast. Although, hotel is under renovations, the inside was pleasantly... More
