It appeared to us that this establishment was understaffed. Although our sheets and towels were clean, everything seemed a bit lacking. Our room had a broken blind, and it had not been cleaned when we returned to our room around 4 o'clock. The housekeeping lady was super apologetic and replenished our washcloths, cups, etc. The hot breakfast was nice, but... More

I would put 5 stars if this was a review for only a family hotel. For a family with kids this hotel is perfect! Inside pool with hot tub, restaurant with very good food, access to the water's edge, clean rooms and great service. As great as this hotel is, it's not a resort feeling for couples. Business trip, families,... More

The Fireside in was the right fit. Traveling solo on my way to meet up with family in Central Maine I found myself in Belfast ME . This was a very comfortable, safe and sound feeling Inn. I meet people by the pool and enjoyed a quiet meal in the restaurant.

We stay at the Fireside once a year on getaway travel, so have learned to appreciate the ocean view everything, restaurant, room, pool, hot tub breakfast. This trip I noticed they'd added USB chargers in the room so I can keep my phone charged up, nice touch. I'm an early bird, so appreciated the coffee at all hours and notice... More

My grandson was visiting from CO and we wanted to stay at the ocean. First had to pick my grand daughter up in Pittsfield,ME so found this hotel online and hoped for the best! We lucked out in every sense of the word... this is a beautiful spot with incredible grounds and view of the bay. Every room has a... More

We had a great stay here on July 4th. All rooms have a great view of the bay. The door on our ground floor room lead right to the expansive lawn (at least 200 yards).and went right down to the edge of the beach. Easily one of the best places to catch fireflies ever. But, bring bug spray the mosquitoes... More

Thank you for spending your Independence Day Holiday with us. Thank you, too, for the nice comments about our hotel, the view, and our "charming harbor town". We are fortunate to live in one of the most picturesque states in the country. Thank you for coming up to see it. We hope to see you on future visits to Maine.... More

Oh let me count the ways in which I love this hotel! First of all, they let us check in at 10am. This was huge because I had not slept much the night before after having to make a quick trip to the emergency room for an antibiotic. They didn't bat an eye--they assigned us a lovely room and gave... More

You paint such a beautiful picture with your words, "The view...oh my! Out our back door is their immense green lawn that rolls down to the ocean's edge, where a few Adirondack chairs are perfectly perched. The smell of the ocean and salt air breeze was heavenly from our room." Thank you for writing such a nice review. We are... More

I extended another day as this was a lovely stay. Beautiful grounds and every room has a beautiful ocean view, ask for the top floor if available. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and in good condition with a balcony to sit out.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2015. Staff was very friendly and helpful with ideas of where to eat, etc. We had a 3rd floor suite, which was a bedroom, kitchenette and LR. The hotel opens from the parking lot to the 2nd floor, so you only need to go up one flight of stairs. The balcony in... More

We stayed for two nights over the 4th of July, and had a blast! All the rooms on the first floor open directly on to their beautifully maintained and expansive back lawn, that rolls alll the way down to the water's edge- where you can go left and explore a rocky beach, or go right and sit on a little...
