Stayed at the Cedar Crest in Camden, Maine for two night, the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The decor is date but I think is what gives it it's charm. The staff was friendly, the grounds are kept very nicely. The restaurant on the premises is excellent family owned. They couldn't do enough for. The town of Camden is... More

This Inn was really comfortable (felt like home). The rates were also very reasonable. The Inn keeper was really welcoming and accommodating. I'd love to go back. I forget if we used the hotel tonight app here or not but I've realized I get the best rates with that app. I've saved quit a bit using that app. If you... More

We stayed at the Cedar Crest Inn in Camden Maine for one night checking out July 4th. We stayed in a mini-suite which was dated a bit, but functional and very clean. We felt the entire property was well kept and clean. There is an outdoor pool, however we didn't use it. The Restaurant on site, Elm Street Grill, was... More

I stayed in this hotel many many years ago and I swear the rooms have not changed one bit. The hotel is very clean and the people working are very nice but the rooms could use an update as could the bathrooms. Beds were comfortable and linens were nice. The a/c worked well and the place was overall pretty quiet.... More

Located just outside of downtown Camden, this is a charming old-timey, two-story motor inn. They were willing to book a one-night weekend stay, which many establishments do not allow, and the room rates were very reasonable for a tourist town. The room was spacious and extremely clean, with excellent A/C. The grounds were well kept and there is a pool... More

Even though we only stayed at the Inn overnight, it was the cleanest and cutes small place I've ever been to. The decor was dated but the cleanliness more than made up for it! The beds were crisp and the overall look was very tidy. You can tell the owners take pride in maintaining this place.

This historic motel is just south of Camden. rooms are furnished with lovely country style appointments. Much nicer than your typical chain motel. The grounds are charming and garden like. The staff clearly is proud of this facility. When we return to Camden, we will be sure to stop here again.

We spent 2 nights here and really enjoyed ourselves! We liked the closeness to downtown Camden and large property when I booked from the website. The rooms are modest if not a little dated, but ours was clean and large and the beds were comfy. We stayed on the lower level because of our kids but, oh how I wish... More

Chose the Cedar Crest for a two night stay on the coast of Maine. The Inn was just opening for the season, so there were very few rooms occupied, but everything was ready and the room great. Beds were comfortable, micro/frige in place, everything we needed, and very reasonably priced for the area. We were just ahead of the season... More
