Hotel was in good condition, the room was clean and the view was great. The staff seemed very friendly and greeted us every time we came through the door way. It was nice having a door the the back to admire the water view. Only downsides I noticed was the window did not lock fully(was a little breeze coming though... More

With not many lodging options off-season around Belfast, this is a modest motel property with lots of pluses. Comfortably modern rooms, a view out the back towards the ocean that will pleasantly surprise you as you start the day. Very friendly staff, ok breakfast buffet. Very reasonable rates. Would come back again.

April 10 -12 was our most recent of 5 stays at the Fireside Inn. We have now been there in almost every season, and the beauty of this location, right on the edge of the Belfast Bay, which joins the Penobscot Bay, is breathtaking. Every room looks out on this view, of tiny 'lighthouse', trees that edge the water, the... More

I always stayed at this property even when it was the Comfort Inn. Now under new ownership, it's just the same. Clean, Pretty view of the water, good breakfast choices (which are free with your room). All the rooms face the water (so nice). The transition from Comfort Inn to Fireside Inn was seamless. I always stay here regardless of... More

Thank you for your review. We wanted to make a seamless transition to Fireside Inn & Suites. Thank you for that comment. The Comfort Inn Was a franchise, and our owners chose to drop the franchise so we could reinvest in the property. We have added rooms with fireplaces, changed the top of the beds, added carpet and tile in... More

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

Happy Anniversary! Thanks for spending it with us. As you speculated, not all rooms have the massage chair, fireplace and Tempurpedic bed. We do have a few on the 3rd floor, overlooking the water. We do, however have the Keurig coffee brewer, refrigerator, microwave, and Bath & Body Works amenities in every room. Thank you for sharing your anniversary with... 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

Thank you for staying with us on Thanksgiving. The restaurant was open on thanksgiving to serve our Thanksgiving buffet, but was not open in the evening. I am sorry that this was an inconvenience. Our experience in the past is that we had more staff in the restaurant then guests on Thanksgiving evening. You are right. In this rare situation,... 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.

Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your review. I was glad to read that you enjoyed the facilities and the view, but dismayed that we didn't provide our usually great breakfast.

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
