My wife and I have stayed at the Surry Inn on several occasions--with my mother-in-law from Australia once. It is in a delightful location on a bay, and is clean, pleasant, and, yes, restful. It is handy for the various attractions of the Maine coast, including Bar Harbor, without the hype and price of those attractions. The food is excellent--particularly... More

I love this place and have returned several times (a 900-mile drive each way) with great enthusiasm. The proprietors are great--helpful and welcoming--and the food is wonderful. The situation is beautiful and the charges are reasonable. I am astonished by people whining about the supposed shortcomings of the Surry Inn. Perhaps they should look for a Holiday Inn. This place... More

I just returned home from staying 3 nights at The Surry Inn. When I arrived I noticed a musty odor. My room was upstairs and had no lock on the door. There was a lock on the bathroom door that didn't work. They offered to put a latch on the door, and did, but it didn't work. When the doorknob... More

We were here from 8/4 to 8/7, and also on our honeymoon 21 years ago. The plant and interior are pretty much the same as in 1987. It's still a very old building, with merely old additions, average sized rooms, small bathrooms, and unremarkable furnishings. No TV, no alarm clock, no free shampoo. No locks on the doors--you want privacy,... More

The Surry Inn should be renamed the Sorry Inn-- "sorry the place is so run down and sorry we will not return your deposit even though this place is nothing like we advertise". After driving several hours to get to this run down old house in the middle of nowhere, we were shocked to find a place in desperate need... More

While this property is in need of some touch up painting it was clean and comfortable.The location is beautiful with a view of the bay and no noise from the road.Dinner was excellent and reasonable with a large selection of moderately priced wine by the glass and friendly and competent service

The Surry Inn doesn’t lack of atmosphere, and the food is good; unfortunately though, they say that the breakfast is fm 8 to 9.15 a.m., but even if you sit at 8 you won’t have your breakfast until 9....really too long a wait for a simple breakfast. Moreover its quite pricy if you consider the condition of the bathroom (our... More

I had a very similar experience as the gentleman/other reviewer from CA. I sent in a deposit for one night, they cashed it (no confirmation, although I sent an email address) and said I must stay for two when I got there, and after a well-meaning desk attendant said he'd correct it the owner overruled him and said if I...

Watch out for the Surry Inn in Surry, Maine, about 15 minutes from Bar Harbor. We paid $92/night for a horrible little room that was dirty, had torn window shades and bedspreads, inadequate lighting, etc. It is an old, historic building that has been totally neglected and needs a thorough cleaning and face lift. Also, they have a 10-day cancellation... More
