It was a blessing that my company booked me three nights here on my first trip to coastal Maine. The Inn was so cozy and warm. Very attentive staff, nice breakfast, lovely and quiet room with subdued lighting and comfortable big bed. Best of all was the courtesy the guests were shown with plowing the parking area in what turned... More

This was a completely smooth process from booking online, checking in, out as well as any needs met with fabulous customer service. Accommodations are very clean, plush, modern, stylish and spacious. Even the quality of the towels was impressive. The heated bathroom floor was an unexpected bonus that was great on a sub zero day I visited. The bedding is... More

The Margaretta Inn is the perfect spot to stay while in the Down East area. Completely redone, my room was decorated to create a calm, warm environment with great amenities. The bed was a dream. I must admit my favorite part was the radiant heating in the bathroom floor. After coming in during a snowstorm, it felt wonderful to take... More

this inn appears to be recently updated and has been done so by someone who has a wonderful ability to capture comfort in a tastefully decorated space. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the atmosphere was relaxing. The recommended place to stay in Machias.

I was recently put up at the Margaretta Inn by my employer, we were experiencing a epic snowstorm in the Northeast, and the hospital needed to make sure employees that lived out side of town could get to work. My room was absolutely beautiful, the bed was one of the most comfortable that I have slept on in a hotel... More

We stayed at the Margaretta for two nights for a family function. The rooms were impeccably cleaned, very nicely renovated, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The redesign works perfectly for the space, and who doesn't love a soft bed and heated bathroom floors?! Certainly blew away our expectations, and we were happily impressed.

This was newly renovated to the standards of a 5 star hotel. The rooms were small but were expertly furnished to include 2 extremely comfortable double beds, Refrigerator,... More

This hotel was very clean and they treated us very well, the bed was comfortable the heated floor in the bathroom made taking a shower a very comfortable experience . I think the breakfast should start before 7 am because I always leave between 6 and 630 and I would enjoy a cup of coffee
