My husband found this hotel on the internet when searching for a hotel in Belfast. The reviewed were good, so he chose it. Everything was great. Amy greeted us at the desk, answered questions about the area, and handed us whoopie pies as a welcome gift. Our room had a private balcony (I think they all do!), looking directly at... More

First of all, we did not plan on staying here, but they are still advertised as a Comfort Inn, the Maine Visitors Center told us that it is a Comfort Inn, and when I called the number on the Comfort Inn brochure that I was given by the Visitor's Center and asked if it is the Comfort Inn, I was...

Thank you for your review. We certainly don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking that we are a Comfort Inn. We are proud to say that we have been a Fireside Inn & Suites since January 1, 2014. When people call and ask, “Is this the Comfort Inn?” We respond that we were the Comfort Inn until January 1. We... More

The hotel has a fabulous view of the bay. You can see the town of Belfast from our room. It was so quiet at night, and the star gazing was a treat. That balcony view alone was the worth the stay. The staff is exceptionally friendly, and offer you Whoopie Pies upon check-in. The rooms were dated, but clean, and... More

Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed the staff, the accommodations and the view. The day time view of the water is so nice, that I forget that night time brings excellent star gazing. Thank you for pointing that out. We hope to serve you again soon.

Thank you for your review. Thank you especially for your comments about Charlotte and Amy at the desk.

Five of us spent (3) nights here in the Presidential Suite while attending a wedding. We had a total of (7) rooms in our group of Wedding Guests. We were impressed the moment we walked into the lobby. Very small townish, but professional. The room was ready.. The room was clean, neat, well laid out and roomy. It was quiet... More

Thank you for your review. It's hard not to like that suite, with the view from your 3rd floor balcony, and the 4 person hot tub. However, I was glad to see that you were impressed with the rest of the property, the food, and the staff. It was great to have your wedding group with us. Please don't wait... More

There was a shade on the door to the balcony which was broken and dirty with old cigarette smoke along with the fire alarm all yellowed and dingy. I was hoping this would be great. I will look for a different place next time.

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. I am sorry that you didn't find your room as clean as the majority of our guests have, and I am sorry about the broken blind. Occasionally, the doors that open on to our decks get caught by the wind off the water, and it reeks havoc on the mini... More

Just got back from a 4 day trip to Belfast ME with my wife where we stayed at the Fireside Inn & Suites Ocean's Edge in a King Suite.

Thank you for writing. I can understand your concern about staying in a pet-friendly hotel. You are correct that we have designated rooms for pets. They are on the first floor as it is much easier to walk your pet directly out the back door of your room, opening to our ten acres leading down to the water. People who... More

I have been staying here quite a bit for my job. This hotel is absolutely nothing special outside of the fantastic view from the balconies. I have stayed in many different rooms, each have their own special aroma of previous guests. There are usually many a stray hair around the bathroom.

The Fireside is off of the ocean and each room on the backside has a balcony and a clear view of the bay. The rooms are nicely appointed and our room even had a fireplace.
