This hotel is fabulous. From the room we could see the bay. We were there while a wedding was going on and were able to watch from our balcony. We stayed in a King executive and were very impressed. Nice space. We were unable to eat at the restaurant as it was only take out due to the wedding. We... More

Thank you for choosing us for your overnight getaway. I am so glad that you enjoyed the facilities and staff and your "breakfast on the deck". I don't know if you are referring to the deck attached to the breakfast area or the deck attached to your room. Either way, I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I hope that you... More

We have stayed here several times and have always found comfortable accommodations here. On this visit we found that the affiliation with Quality Choice Hotels was gone and we will miss our points.However, the QUALITY, is still here if not improved.

Wow, reviews in 48 locations? That's quite a bit of travel! Thank you for your kind words. Yes, we have dropped our franchise agreement with Choice hotels. They are good people to work with, but we thought the money we pay them could be better spent on the property. We are fortunate to have a wheelchair bound guest who has... More

I reserved this hotel back in Jan, because it advertised that it was absolutely wonderful, and had great views of the bay. Wrong! First of all, the hotel is absolutely nothing special. Secondly, I am a wheelchair user and my husband is on oxygen, and they claimed to be very accessible. When we got there, the elevator was broken. If... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the elevator broke while you were here. As soon as we have an issue, we call the elevator company for repair. They got it fixed as soon as they could.

We recently enjoyed a few days at the Inn. All the rooms face the penobscot Bay and have walk out or balcony views! The room was nice, spacious and well cleaned every day.

Very comfortable room and bed. Awesome view of the beautiful bay from all the rooms. You don't have to travel to find a restaurant, as there is a great one right there on property. The food was excellent, (and I'm very much a critic) but really like the food prepared at the restaurant.

We stayed at this hotel as an overnight on our way to Acadia. The rooms were clean, service was great and the view from the room was amazing! The breakfast in the morning was also very good with lots of variety. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay at this hotel.

What a beautiful view and the hotel is perfect. Slept so peacefully and then had a good breakfast in the lobby with that perfect view. Was able to do 2 loads of laundry so that was good. Got a voucher for drinks with dinner which was another perk. Staff friendly and would recommend this hotel.
