I stayed here recently while skiing at Sunday River. Convenient location to the mountain and great breakfast, all for under $100 per night. The only thing I missed was having a full-length mirror in the room, but I'm sure that's not important to a lot of people. My boyfriend loved the hot tub too!

Coming back from a mountain hike, didnt have reservations but luckily they had a vacancy or we may not have had the pleasure of staying at this charming hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and room and bathroom were very clean. Room was small but accommodating, with a refrigerator, small sofa and a table and chair. Did not use... More

My wife and I were driving from NY's Thousand Islands region to coastal Maine and didn't know how far we'd get on a rainy, mid-September day, so had made no reservations. Toward the end of the afternoon, we gassed up in Bethel (ME) and started looking for overnight accommodations. The Rostay Inn popped up on the Internet and its site... More

Nice play to stay. I stayed with my wife and 8 month old daughter. It was a pleasant stay... Hotel staff was really nice and provided information on the restaurants around as I came in bit late to check-in.. Morning breakfast was included into the room rent and it was really different breakfast than I have had before at any... More

What a beautiful place: clean, well upkept, beautiful landscapes, clean rooms and pool, nice quilt shop and very welcoming people. We even had wood supply and a fireplace, really cool! Oh and of course, if you're a biker, you get free breakfast! We'll certainly come again, if passing by!

Cathy is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are large, clean and homey. A handmade quilt covers every bed. A real touch of home! Great place to stay. The beds are comfortable. TV, refrigerator and microwave provide all essentials while away from home

Thank goodness someone in the area is pet friendly. After being turned down by 3 other places we were very glad that the Inn has some pet friendly rooms. My little dog appreciated the big yard at the back and I was glad that someone recognized that pets can be good guests.

We stayed for weekend in a motel unit. The room was dark and smelled musty. The bathroom sink and toilet are tiny and old fashioned. It just seems worn out. And no hair dryer? ?? That's just cheap. Every unit had exactly one chair outside of the door. We did not take advantage of the $9 breakfast but I overheard... More

We are sorry you were not as impressed as most of our other guests have been. We pride ourselves in not being a "cookie cutter" motel, owned by a non existent corporation. Our bathroom sinks and toilets are standard size, sold at Home Depot or Lowes. If you needed a hair dryer all you needed to do was to come... More

Pet Friendly, breakfast offered. This is a cute little motel on the main road between Bethel and Sunday River. The room was spotless, if small by modern standards, very quiet and the staff is very friendly. There is a quilting shop in the same building as the motel office, and a mini-mart/gas station across the road is very handy if... More
