The staff at the hotel was friendly, and rooms were clean and large. Breakfast is served in the lobby and was a typical continental breakfast... More

Great rooms! Have been coming here since the hotel opened -over ten years and have always been satisfied. Close to everything! The breakfast is more than adequate-they recently added hot foods which is a nice addition. Coffee viable all day.

Room was very good, great in room amenities. Off season, so quiet. Clean room and great front desk staff. Only issue was when I asked about meals, they only recommended their sister property the Bar Harbor Inn. I understand, but wish they had given a range even if they rated that one the best. Next morning desk staff offered good... More
