The Waterville Fireside Inn & Suites is a clean, comfortable hotel. They have spent the money updating the beds and bedding and it makes all the difference as the beds, pillows & comforters are wonderful. The rooms are large - we had two queen rooms for 5 people and we had ample room, however a little more seating in the... More

Nancy Cayford was an exceptional front desk receptionist. She was so friendly and accommodating. We were there for four night for a funeral, which is always hectic, but she took the thinking out of it for us. It is nice having Governor's attached when you arrive back late and need to eat.

Thank you for staying, and thank you for your kind words about Nancy. I'm sorry for your loss. It's tough to attend a funeral at any time of the year. I'm glad that Nancy could ease your burden a little. Hopefully, you can stay with us under better circumstances. Thanks for staying with us. Sincerely, Barry Asalone General Manager More

Decent food at governors too. Walmart and shops close by. The hot tub wasnt open. Its located right off the highway. All in all not a bad choice compared to nearby hotels for the price. Would stay again.

Thank you for writing. Yes, we pride ourselves on being the best value in Waterville. You can pay both more or less in this market, but we feel that we give more, like 42" HDTV, refrigerators and microwaves in all rooms, Keurig coffee makers in the rooms, etc. Thanks for staying with us.

I have been staying at the Fireside Inn for the past three years and always look forward to returning. Something about it feels like "home" to me--I suspect it's the people. My most recent trip has prompted me to write this review. Because of flight cancellations, I arrived in Waterville at 1:30 a.m. Maria (the receptionist that night) couldn't have... More

This hotel was just awesome. Best deal in both Augusta and Waterville for the dates we needed, and it was great. Our room was big, bed was comfy, and scrupulously clean. There is an outdoor hot tub that stays open all year, and the breakfast buffet at the attached restaurant was YUMMMY. Yes, the décor was a little outdated, but... More

Upon arrival, it doesn't look like much, a hotel with a restaurant attached. The desk person was warm and friendly upon checking in and we were given a room in building 3.

My friend and I stayed this week at the inn, and found it to be very clean with a homely feeling. Breakfast was always available and Governors ( the restaurant connected to the hotel ) is open early and late for food. We truly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back soon.

The Fireside Inn was just the right place for our stop in Waterville to visit Colby College with my daughter this week. We asked for the College discount and were given an excellent rate.
