I have been traveling to Aroostook county for the last 5 years on a weekly basis for work, and almost always stay at the Caribou Inn. The rates are reasonable, the staff is personable, and most importantly, the rooms are clean. As someone who spends a great deal of time away from my family on business, it makes me feel... More

Picking up Rt 1 where I left off 46 years ago intent on completing the trek from the Mason-Dixon line to the end of the line we stayed here overnight and were most satisfied with the accommodations and the helpful hints about WiFi connecting. Having deactivated my room key with my tablet I was graciously rekeyed. Beds were comfortable, room... More

Hotel is in dire need of a renovation. Carpets need replacing, furniture is old, rooms/hallways smell musty and it needs an entire coat of paint. The employees were very courteous. The restaurant is average. The bar is adequate. The real problem is it's the only real hotel in town, so they have a captured audience. Stayed there 15 years ago... More

Traveling to Aroostook County on a 5 day mini vacation brought us to the Caribou Inn. We spent 4 nights and we were completely satisfied. The inn could stand some updating, but nothing seriously wrong. The hall carpets need to be replaced, but were only showing wear, they were not dirty. Our room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. We had... More

I called the hotel and booked a King Nonsmoking room. When I got there, they had put me into a room with one full sized bed. I went back down to the desk to see about my King Nonsmoking I had booked. The clerk behind the desk was attempting to resolve the issue when a man dressed in casual clothes... More

This was indeed an unfortunate situation. While we strive to always provide professional and friendly service for our guests, the aggressive and condescending manner with which you approached the front desk certainly set the tone for our exchange. Having been in hotel management yourself (which you were quick to inform me), you are no doubt aware that it can be... More

We stayed here because we were looking for a pet friendly hotel. frankly we were not expecting much as we knew it has not been updated since it opened 25+\- yrs ago. That said, we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was incredibly spacious, quiet, and clean. The beds were comfortable, though I'd give the pillows aB-. Staff was friendly and... More

I travel occasionally in my job, and I am also a native of the area (while I no longer live there). We always stay at the Caribou Inn and Convention Center because of the laid-back feeling and great service. When I have stayed there during conferences, the rooms are quiet and I get a good night's sleep. When I bring... More

I am surprised to see some reviews that are more positive than I would expect but I spend about 70% of my year in hotel rooms so I am sure I have developed a more stringent set of expectations. This place elicits a bit of a mixed message. I stayed here because all Presque Isle hotels were full due to... More

Property was nice and I was impressed with the incredible comfort of the beds. The restaurant in the hotel was a nice touch and service was quick. The gym equipment has a wide selection to choose from. The Spin Bikes and ellipticals were nice! The weight room was huge. Nice property.
