We had a very nice say at this Inn. The staff was so helpful and courteous and made us feel like we were good friends instead of just guests. We would recommend this Inn to anyone as a superb place to stay.

As promised in other Trip Advisor reviews, Fort Knox Inn offers an extraordinary small town lodging experience. Reservations and check-in handled well, the rooms are clean and well-stocked, and staff friendly. The Inn is located in downtown Bucksport and on the water, offering stunning views of the Route 1 bridge. Water side is worth the upgrade if you are going... More

I liked this hotel, it was clean, but old fashion, needed updating, staff was very nice. Most of the rooms had a water view, so ask for it, and it was a reasonable price for what it was. There was a good restaurant Macleod across the street.

After my disaster at a nearby inn (see my review of A Slum on a Lake), it was a pleasure and a relief to find this welcoming and well-run place, with fantastic water views. A well-proportioned and furnished room was spotlessly clean and had nice toiletries. Windows opened for fresh air, no a/c needed (although there was a unit under... More

This is a fine older inn which is well maintained. All of the staff take pride in the care they offer. They are very friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the Penobscot River along which is a brick mile plus walk, beautiful flowers everywhere. If you want to spend a few days in a lovely small town, don't miss this.

Great hotel, and local! Within 30 minute drive of Bangor and Ellsworth. Great views of the marina, the new bridge and Fort Knox! You won't be disappointed!! While visiting, be sure to visit Fort Knox, and the Buck cemetery (across from Irving).

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....
