We visited in August for an impromptu weekend away from home. It was not really expensive, so my expectations weren't terribly high, but at the end of the day I really didn't enjoy my stay. he rooms in general were about one step up from something like Motel 6, but the room we had was clean and neat, if basic,...

I went to The Rostay Inn with my mom dad and brother to see the fireworks. It was all really good the prices are nothing I stayed in the deluxe hotel and it was like 100.00 a night. But the pool is a little dirty. My favorite part is how you can rent a movie. I would go to Rostay... More

We stayed here at the end of a very busy vacation. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable and covered with a hand made quilt. Each room has a theme and ours was, I think, Americana. Quilt was red, white and blue. There is a quilt store that is part of the motel and based on feedback from... More

It's difficult to find a small town motel that doesn't feel like it is being operated by Norman Bates and his mother. The Inn at the Rostay is the exception. Conveniently located near the turnoff to Rte 26 North for Canadians travelling from the Maritimes to upper Canada, and just outside the small and picturesque town of Bethel, western Maine,... More

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at the Inn at the Rostay. The room was very clean and cozy, with comfortable beds. We slept great both nights! We were in town for a wedding at the 1888 barn, which happens to be right next door to the Inn. If you attend an event at the 1888 barn... More

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
