Another visit to the area to see family, stayed in a regular room this time nice, clean and slept very well. Front Desk Staff kind as ever we arrived late again. Traveling with our now 2.5year old. The housekeepers are so kind and actually talk to guests not walk by and ignore them. My son kept peaking into rooms they... More

This may be one of the best hotels in the Waterville area. That said, there were a few annoying things about it. This is basically a motel-style place. The room was fairly clean. It had high ceilings (I was on the upper floor of one of the wings), which was nice. The view from the window is of parking lots... More

Thank you for your review, and thank you for staying with us. I'm glad that you found the room comfortable and clean, and the staff friendly. In the breakfast area, you must have missed the other buffet. Yes, we have pop-tarts. Not my favorite, but people gobble them up. We also have breakfast sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, bagels, muffins, danish, donuts,... More

We always stop at the Fireside in Waterville on our annual vacation trek to Canada. It is half-way to our destination and has the most comfortable beds of any hotel I have been in. The hotel is always clean and is very well managed. In fact, my husband and I make it a point to stay in Lafayette properties whenever... More

Stayed one night on strength of trip advisor reviews. We were in 304 and it was disappointing. The place needs a makeover. Paintwork is shabby and chipped and some elements are heavily painted over. Furnishings are the same. We showered as the bath is not one you would want to sit down in ; it has an anti slip base... More

Stayed here for just one night, but the room was fine, king bed comfy. Room had a small fridge, microwave and Keurig for coffee. Nice touch with the whoopee pies we each got at registration. Yummy! Breakfast had a nice variety and was well stocked. Staff was helpful and very friendly. We would stay again.

Been staying here years, however, this past weekend we had our family with us. Reserved 3 rooms, 2 adjoining. The king suite was used by our daughter and son-in-law with their 7 month old twins and it was spacious enough for them to have their toys, walkers etc. they brought. They have play yards available too! We had the adjoining... More

Thank you for your kind words. After reading your review, I spoke with Tricia. She told me why you were here this time. I'm sorry for your loss. I'm pleased to read that Tricia made a sad time a little more comfortable. We look forward to seeing you again on far more happy occasions. Sincerely, Barry Asalone General Manager More

Spacious and clean rooms with 2 queen beds. Swimming pool and hot tub available. Not that much disturbing noise in the room despite the fact that the hotel is located in an industrial area, near the highway and main street. A very negative point however, is the breakfast: industrial food to be taken out or eaten on one of the... More
