Oh where to begin? We reserved two rooms for two nights. We saw four altogether however, since we were moved downstairs because the upstairs was very hot. The whole place is decrepit. The grounds are mostly neglected, the paint is peeling, the wallpaper in two of the rooms we saw was peeling, the screens don't fit too well so bugs... More

We were surprised at this inn. Pictures and website made it sound like a typical quaint old inn, the kind we like. The room, though large, had a motel feel and smell to it. The unusable balcony outside our room looked ready to fall down. The view was of an overgrown lawn and an empty cinderblock pool full of weeds... More

What a pleasant break from the "always on" world! I spent a long weekend at the Down Easter Inn and it was really nice to get a break from constant technology. The inn has wifi available in common areas, which is great when you need it, but it is also really nice to be able to get away from it... More

The staff were very friendly and considerate, they made us feel welcome. The inn is a bit rustic, the decor dated and old fashioned, but it is clean and functional. There was no television or AC in the room, but we were pleased to have the wheelchair accessible room which was huge and comfortable. The fresh blueberry scones made the... More

We stayed here for five nights. On the positive side: very nice staff, clean room, comfortable bed, decent continental breakfast (delicious scones), and peaceful, quiet setting. It's not modern, and that's OK too. Just know that you may be "out of touch" with the rest of the world due to no TV or phones in room, and no wifi available.... More

As a Virginian who has traveled to Maine most years for the past 16 - it was part of the marriage agreement - I've been coming here for the last 12. I love the fact that it is family run and I love the people who work here. I have always gotten a great breakfast that includes homemade pastries and... More

Our 5 day Maine vacation was anchored from the Down Easter Inn. It's location is perfect for day trips to Boothbay Harbor, Rockport and so many lighthouses. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Inn starting with the home-made muffins and pastries in the morning, all the way to the relaxing atmosphere out on the front lawn in the... More

We felt like family at this charming inn. We met up with some friends to celebrate a milestone birthday with lobster, sailing, and fun. We started and ended our days at The Down Easter. Mornings started out on the Adirondack chairs that were setup in the middle of the front lawn. It was a great place to read, drink coffee... More

Stayed here for a wedding in Bristol only because it was listed on the couple's site as hotels in the area. Should have done my homework. From first glance, the place is run down. Paint is worn, grounds unkempt. Entering the office area was like walking into grandma's house. In fact, I think it's a living room. Tacky decor, unprofessional... More
