I enjoyed my stay at the Rostay Inn very much. The Innkeepers , Al & Kathy were very friendly & created a very relaxed atmosphere, where it was easy to meet other travelling guests. The Inn is centrally located and close to all amenities. The price offers great value. The hot breakfast is a great way to start your day... More

If you're looking for a comfy bed after a day at Sunday River, this is the place for you. The bed was incredibly comfortable, there were plenty of pillows, the room was clean and my family of 4 slept here very well. The service was great, even allowing us to check into our room just before noon so we could... More

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

rostayowner, Owner at The Inn at the Rostay, responded to this review

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
