We stayed here overnight as part of a tour group from NJ/NY on the way to Acadia National Park. I don't know what the group rate came out to be, but based on the advertised rates, I would consider this a great bargain with a lot of value. The room was a nice size for a couple. The room and...

Rooms are large and spacious, staff is fantastic and breakfast is great The staff treats you like family (a good family) from the moment you walk through the door. Any questions at any hour are greeted with a friendly smile.

It was confusing to figure out if this was still a Comfort Inn or not and we found out not, Fireside Inn & Suites is now operated and owned by different company. Still we found this lodging very accommodating and customer service was great. We especially enjoyed dining at their restaurant called Ocean's Edge. Thank you-

Thank you for your review, and thank you for your repeated visits. On January 1, 2014, we terminated our franchise agreement with Comfort Inn and converted to the Fireside Inn & Suites Brand. This a brand that our company owns. The Comfort Inn Brand name was good to us, and they treated us very well. However, a franchise is expensive... More

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.

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

Wow! Thanks! If I were going to write a brochure for this location, I could not have written it any better than you did. Thank you for returning again and again. I often encourage people from the South to visit us in the heat of the summer, to feel the cool breezes off the water. However, you have come in... 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.

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.

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.

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
