If you want to get away from it all and at the same time, have the option of a sumptuous Breakfast Buffet every morning included in the price of the room, the Island Inn is for you. It is nine miles out to sea. The Island residents have approx. 15 trucks, no cars, (that's it) on the entire island. The... More

This hotel was extremely efficient, friendly and clean. W stayed in an ocean view King bed room with private bath. Linens were soft and clean. The restaurant buffet at breakfast was incredible for the price paid for the room. Service friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful stay and will surely visit again!

We spent two days and one night at the Island Inn while wondering around Monhegan Island. The inn is remarkably maintained and just right for the environment. Rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. The restaurant is good--breakfast comes with the room and dinner is an option. Really a nice experience to begin the season. If you go, plan to hike... More

Twelve painters joined Frank Bruckmann at the Island Inn on Monhegan Island,ME for a week. We have been very warmly welcomed by the innkeeper Michael and his staff who have bent over backwards to make our trip enjoyable. He provided great accommodations (good products in the bathrooms!) and the restaurant is really good. Breakfast is included in the room rate... More

The Island Inn has basic, cozy rooms. We stayed in a small double room with two twin beds and shared bath. Both were clean, though it was cold. We had to ask for extra blankets. The problem for me is that the walls are not very soundproof. I was able to hear the person in the room next to me... More

Monhegan Island is one of the 7 wonders of the world as far as I'm concerned. It's a magical paradise in the middle of the ocean with old world charm. The Island Inn is a fabulous place to stay, relax and enjoy Island life. A must go to on your bucket list.

This island doesn't have many options to stay but if your traveling to Monhegan you know that already. The Hotel has a small lobby with board games and a cool restaurant. So funny experience but the smoke alarms went off when we stayed at the hotel early in the morning because the fog rolled in and tricked up the system.... More

Monhegan Islands is everything the rave reviews have told you about, but what surprised us most is that 4 nights were not enough! There is so much to do for nature lovers - Bring your hiking shoes! Bring a book and go hide in the Fairy Forest! Bring the art project you always wanted to try! or just sit on... More

Although we live where we look at the island of Monhegan, it is always special when we go out for the day or an extended stay. The Inn is comfortable, the rooms cozy with nice baths, the staff very accommodating and friendly. Although we stayed the last day they are open for the season, the breakfast and the dinner were...

We stayed in room 20 on the meadow side of the inn. Room was small, and decor was spare, but very nice and tasteful. The bed was quite comfortable. The bathroom was quite large, modern and clean. Very comfortable and nice! The room wasn't very quiet. Could hear hallway noise, doors closing, folks using the hall bathrooms all night. The... More
