i stayed here once several years ago and dont remember much other than I did not want to return... my room was in a building that was detached from the lobby and I didn't feel safe.

Thank you for returning, and thank you for your review I'm glad that you enjoyed one of our executive king rooms with a fireplace & massage chair.

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

I got caught in what I would describe as a blizzard, and pulled off in Waterville at the Fireside Inn, since I have stayed before. It didn't disappoint. The winter rate was great, the staff was friendly, and the room was spotless. They had a wine & cheese reception for a short time in the evening, but I didn't partake.... More

We stayed for the weekend and enjoyed this hotel in Waterville Maine. Great location right off exit 130 on I-95. The self serve breakfast was good enough to get one started. We went to the amazing Colby College Art Museum that is close by. There is also a Starbucks next door for you latte fans.

I stayed for 9 days and arrived at the beginning of an ice storm. The hotel is older, but well maintained and the staff works hard to "get to know you". Showers are good, towels are high grade and they are generous with them as well. The hotel is directly connected to "The Governor's Restaurant" and their hours are good... More

We drove from Saint John, NB. to Waterville to avoid a snow strom (14") on our way to Rangeley, Me. We arrived early on an Expedia reservation but we were welcomed and our room was ready. It was very comfortable, excellent shower, and nice continental breakfast. The adjoining Govenor's Restaurant was very convenient with the impending snow storm. We would... More

After an 8 hour drive we walked into the lobby to find complimentary wine, cheese & crackers! The gal behind the desk was friendly, happy & glad to see us! We were amazed!
