Our room was on the same floor as the lobby... More

Thanks so much for your business and for your review or our hotel! We are so very grateful to you for taking the time to advise fellow guests and future customers.

This hotel has staff that really care whether you are enjoying the stay. Do whatever they can to ensure you are comfortable. While the rooms are not huge, they are more than adequate. Views on the water side are gorgeous. Would definitely come back here.

February 8 is way off-season for coastal Maine, and most inns and other places in the area are closed for "the season." I chose the Fort Know Inn because it was close to where I had a meeting the next day. I was one of the very few people spending he night, and I think the others were people on... More

Firstly, many thanks for taking the time to review our property! We appreciate your review and your business. You are correct, February is an "off season" for our property and most other hotels in the area are closed for that time of year. One of the only reasons we are not closed like all of the others, is our commitment... More

Would definitely stay again, but depending on the tides when you're there on how great the view is. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Love having the windows open and getting the cool night air. Water side has beautiful views of the bridge, fort and harbor, but it is only windows, no balconys. Breakfast is very continental.
