We try not to set our expectations too high when staying at a hotel we have never visited before. Last time we were in the area it was always full, which is a good sign. The pictures on their website show immaculate rooms, incredible views, and beautiful grounds. I always figure the pictures are less than honest. I was wrong!... More

This Inn is perfect in every way: I agree, the website does not do it justice. We spent 4 wonderful nights in this spotless, beautifully decorated Inn, overlooking the bay from our private balcony. Very comfortable bed, all the usual amenities, nice gardens, terrific heated pool and ideally located - only a few minutes from Rockland, Rockport and Camden. I... More

The bride and groom of the wedding we were attending chose the Inn for us, and were we glad they did! The view was amazing. Our room was gorgeous, with separate sitting room and bedroom, which had a fireplace set in a wall of stone. We are lunch on our private balcony overlooking the infinity pool and the bay. Heaven!...

This review is for the cottages managed by Island View Inn, not for the Inn itself. The cottages are about ¼ mile south of the Inn. We rented two units, a duplex, with each unit having two bedrooms, a living room, a nice kitchen with refrigerator and freezer, a stove, and a microwave. Each unit also had a washing machine... More

This Inn was the highlight of our trip. We simply loved the location, the room and wonderful porch with a stunning view of the cove. You can't go wrong! The website doesn't do this special Inn justice at all. We will be back and I'm already looking forward to our next trip...thank Island View Inn for making our time away... More

This is our fourth time staying at this piece of heaven. Love the way it is decorated and always spotless. The views are the best. All rooms have a deck or patio. Close to Camden but is not in the middle of congestion.

We stayed for the first time at the inn this weekend and could not have been more pleased. The front desk attendant was incredibly welcoming and helpful, we had a beautiful room on the second floor with gorgeous views, the room was pristine clean (& I am extremely picky on cleanliness), it was nicely decorated, my husband liked the large...

We loved our room at the Inn. I don't think the web site does it justice. It was clean, had updated decor, and a beautiful view! You will have to drive a short distance to town but that didn't bother us. We had leftovers packed in a cooler so once we saw our view, we sat on the deck and... More

We've stayed at the neighboring hotel under the same ownership, "Strawberry Hill Inn," many times and thought we'd try the more recently updated "Island View Inn" this time. "Island View" has been more recently updated and has a slightly closer water view of Penobscot Bay, but it is really just a nicely updated motel in a great location. We suggest... More

This was our third visit to the Island View. The room was beautiful and the setting was gorgeous, but the front desk clerk was inconsiderate and rude. We have found this to be true each time we've visited. It's been the same woman and she has a "I don't care" attitude. We once asked if there was a military discount... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know that we are not a suitable hotel for your needs. We appreciate the ability to service guests who are here to visit our coastal inn and enjoy the view, nature and surrounding area but realize this is not for everyone. I am very sorry you found me rude. I truly... More
