The staff was nice but a bit busy/aloof. The rooms are nice, and amazing view of the ocean. Very comfy quiet hotel. One of the reasons i chose this though was it had a pool and the kids wanted to swim. But when we got to the pool and got in, we found it had the weirdest taste.....must be some... More

When I drove up to this motel, the realization that it was a cottage struck me as quaint, not exciting. We were then told to go downstairs to the back and around the corner...uh oh. There were no lighted pathways to this little 2 BR apt. style place. It was sparse with mismatched 60's style furniture. The bathtub enamel/paint was... More

Totally blown away by the beautiful view from the balcony in our room. Friendly, helpful staff, clean, quiet, spacious room. Between Rockport and Rockland, plenty of decent restaurants, and shops fairly close. There is a pool. We will return.

We went here the day before my wedding and was surprised how good the service and view was in the motel. The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable as well. If any, the only complaint that I would have is that the TV was a little outdated but other than that, it was a great stay!! Would... More

We stayed one night at Ledges by the Bay. It's about a 90 minute drive from the Portland Airport by car. The motel is on a high bank overlooking the ocean and the rooms on the water side have balconies where you can sit out and enjoy the view. A continental breakfast is provided in the main house; you can... More

We stayed here for a few days recently when in town for the Bay Chamber Music Festival. It was a very nice place and offered great value. The room was clean and well kept . The view from the room was beautiful and serene and you'd never know you were just off busy Route 1. The breakfast was plentiful and... More

This motel has great views and easy access to Rockport, Rockland, and Camden. The stafff are friendly and responsive. Bed was comfortable and room has a flat screen TV. Having two sinks in the room was a plus.

Gorgeous view of Penobscot Bay. Whoever does the grounds keeping deserves a shout out. Room was pleasant, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a little disappointing. Staff was pleasant and accomodating. There was a persistent hum of some nearby machinery which was a little irritating but after a while we were able to ignore it.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights 08/2014 and can't say enough about how nice this place was to stay and relax. The rooms and grounds were immaculate. Not fancy, but very very comfortable. We were able to back right up to our door which made moving in and out with our luggage very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
5 miles south of Camden and set a top a small ledge overlooking Penobscot Bay, the Ledges is a classic Maine motel with panoramic ocean views. The property is nestled at the foot of a cove on 9 oceanfront acres with 900 feet of shoreline. Our hillside location overlooking the bay offers guests the perfect vantage point to spot tall-masted schooners, sleek yachts cruising the bay, and lobster boats hauling traps right off our shore. ... more   less
