I booked this room because I had a meeting in the morning in Belfast and didn't know what the weather would have in store. I pulled in at 9 and got checked in by two very friendly staff members and made my way into my room. The layout took some getting used to, because every room has a view of... More

We celebrated our Anniversary early this year, but when the actual date came, we were ready to get away again. It was last minute, and we couldn't go far, so Belfast was perfect. The price was right so we booked at the Fireside. We expected the comfortable clean atmosphere, and the promise of the great view did not disappoint. But... More

I quite liked this hotel. There is an amazing view from the rooms of the water and a good area for kids, pets etc to play. The room itself was very clean with all the amenities you'd expect to find. WIFI was extremely fast and the rooms were very quiet. Several entrances to make ti easier for you, and all... More

Stayed here on Columbus Day Weekend and found the hotel accommodations nice with a fantastic view of Belfast Bay. The room was very comfortable and had a nice balcony that lets you sit outside and enjoy sunset over the mountains and then sunrise over the bay. Our biggest complaint was with the Continental Breakfast that on Sunday's is advertised as... More

our stay at the Fireside Inn was really great. We went for a walk down the long front lawn to the beach and skipped a few rocks in the ocean. Dinner in the restaurant included a live musician playing guitar and singing some old sea shanty type songs. We especially loved the great big lobsters and the very reasonable prices.... More

I regularly stay at The Fireside when traveling through central Maine. I stay here because of the friendly staff, beautiful views and warm environment there. As well, they support local charities and are commited to the community. I have always felt at home here, and would recommend it highly.

My stay was for 2 nights and I was totally happy with the Inn and the staff. I liked that they asked if I wanted the sheets changed nightly or could I use the sheets for 2 nights. Since I was on a pleasure trip I was sending someone a postcard. The young lady at the front desk found me... More

My family just stayed at Ocean's Edge again for the fourth time. It is consistently clean and comfortable. The location and water views are fantastic, and downtown Belfast is just a couple of minutes away by car. The staff are friendly and helpful. We have young children who love the indoor pool and playing on the lawn that leads down... More

Thank you for staying with us again. We love to see our guests return year after year. Each time a guest returns, they find new things to explore on the coast of Maine. Often, treasures that our guests find are ones that us "locals" have overlooked. We love to hear about them so we can tell others. Thank you for... More

I booked this hotel through Priceline and had a confirmed reservation. When I arrived at 9:30pm they said they were overbooked and they refused to honor the reservation. Everything else was booked so I spent the night sleeping in my car. Although they said I would not be charged, I got an e-mail a month later that i would be... More

Thank you for writing. I am sorry about the reservation glitch with Priceline. I don't know where the error occurred. We receive many reservations from third-party sites without a problem. I regret that, since it was Priceline that charged your credit card, we could not issue the refund directly. An error like this is a rare circumstance, indeed. However, if... More

All rooms have a great view of the water. Long walk to the beach. The rooms are just ok. They are clean, but bed is not very comfortable nor is the massage chair they seem quite proud of. The fireplace does not add anything to the room. The restaurant in the hotel had very good food however and the whoopi... More
