To me those three things are very important to a good stay...the room we had was, on a scale of 1 to 10, a 10 for cleanliness. The same goes for the comfort we experienced, and the staff were exceptionally hospitable. The bathroom sparkled, the linens were soft and comfy...just everything was so very nice. There was a continental breakfast... More

We only stayed one night but were very pleased with our room, and the hotel in general. Room was very large, with fireplace, couch, and table and chairs.

Nothing spectacular, but a well managed, clean and convenient property. Pool area looked inviting, but weather didn't cooperate during our stay. Attached family restaurant decent, large portions, good value breakfast buffet. Friendly, helpful front desk.

My son and I visited Unity college and stayed here. We stayed in a standard room. Although the room was outdated, it was very clean. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation although I would caution that if you have trouble with steps, I would ask upon making the reservation... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, we are an older hotel, but as you say, we brag that we provide spotlessly clean rooms where everything works at a reasonable price. On top of that, we have the largest HDTVs in Waterville, and Keurig brewers in all rooms. Thank you for staying. We look forward to serving you on future trips... More

I stayed there in January 2014. The staff is friendly the rooms are comfortable and clean. Even it was snowing, the hot tub outside was on. It has small fitness room, but you have to get the key from front desk to use it. You can't use room key. I would return there
