I was happy to get a government rate at this hotel while working in the area. I was thrilled with the view of the water, bridge, and Fort Knox from my bedroom window. The breakfast was cereal and toast but that was ok with me.

I have been staying here every time I ravel up the Maine coast. The location is amazing (BE SURE to ask for a room with a river view)--windows overlook Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows bridge, there is a wonderful footpath behind the hotel that goes along the Penobscot River, and there is an excellent restaurant (MacLeod's) across the street....

Fabulous view, great room and amenities, good parking, delightful staff, always eager to please, complete relaxation and we are always planning a return--even before we leave. Continental breakfast, lovely walk along the river. Counting the days until our return, next month!

This hotel is in the center of everything. Only 15-20 minutes to Bangor and 20-30 minutes to Bar Harbor. Hotel is located in Bucksport which is a nice walking town. The rooms were clean and the hotel staff was very friendly.

The view from the water-side rooms is so spectacular (bridge included) makes me wonder where I am: France? Japan? No, wait ... I'm in Maine! The helpful staff are so sweet and great dining within walking distance. Both Ming's and MacLeods are well worth a stop even if not staying. Have already made reservations for next business trip, central to... More

I stayed here on a business trip working overnights. My room was clean, warm and comfortable. The bed was cozy and the view was amazing. I stayed during the winter season so there weren't many people there and it was very quiet. The woman that ran the front desk was very kind and accommodating for the 2 weeks I was... More
