Looked for a place in the area for a summer getaway and found the island view, all around great experience, reasonable rates, spotless rooms, amazing grounds perfectly kept, and location in the middle of everything, not to mention the views from the oceanfront rooms. Definitely highly recommended.

We spent 4 nights at Island View last week and enjoyed every minute. The balcony with a water view was so peaceful, the room was beautifully furnished and looked like it had just been painted. Everything in the hotel is pleasing to the eye. The landscaping is also perfect for the area, beautiful flowers and plants everywhere you look. The... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed here last week. It was perfect! Great view, large rooms, very quiet. I was surprised by how nice the pool was - I was not expecting to lay around a pool in Maine, but the weather was fantastic and the setting was phenomenal. They have little seating areas with umbrellas set up around the... More

Every room has a spectacular view, even though the day we were there the weather wasn't co-operating. The room was very clean, well appointed and had a great feel with a balcony and opening doors which meant we could enjoy the fresh air. The person at reception was very helpful, proving suggestions of where to visit and dinner choices which... More

This has to be the cleanest room we have ever stayed in! This Inn looks like a motel from the outside but the rooms are gorgeous! Absolutely loved the decor, great colors, and attention to detail. Room was large with private balcony and sweeping views to the Penobscot. Set back and down a knoll from Rt. 1 so you can't... More

We stayed at the Island View Inn on our way to Acadia. The room overlooked the ocean and the view was spectacular. We had drinks by the waters edge and watched ospreys dive to catch their dinner. The location of the Inn is great - between Camden and Rockland you have the choice of dozens of fantastic restaurants. The room... More

We stayed here based on reviews from Tripadvisor. Boy am I glad we did! We stayed in a second floor room with water views. I never wanted to leave. It was so peaceful there. We stayed for two nights and slept both nights with our slider and windows open. It was so quiet. The room was very nicely decorated and... More

Based on TRIPADVISOR reviews, I selected this inn for Memorial Day Weekend. LOVED so much about our experience! PROS 1, THE VIEWS from our room BLEW ME AWAY. Instantly felt relaxed just by stepping onto the private balcony 2. MODERN ROOMS - our particular room was recently updated, and impeccably clean 3. LOCATION - with a car, we easily explored... More

We stayed here during our two-week Maine adventure, and it was by far our favorite of all the places we stayed! The inn and grounds were simply gorgeous, and the view was breathtaking. Everything was immaculate and comfortable. The staff at the desk gave us great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We also appreciated the morning... More
