“Escape from Reality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

Stayed in the Lincoln Room. Oh my! such elegants. The bed was beyond comfortable. I slept better than I have in more than a year. I loved the bathroom so spacious and the dual head shower was such a treat. I would recommend this theme room to anyone. Nice break from reality.

Having stayed at the White House Inn before, I have always been pleased with the attentive service and clean rooms. During this stay, we ventured into one of the themed suites. Our room had a ship captain/ nautical theme. The room was clean, spacious and festively (but tastefully) decorated. The massage chair and two person Jacuzzi tub made our room a relaxing retreat from life. The dangerously comfortable bed and roomy bathroom (2 person shower!) made it very hard to return to our home in Massachusetts. Alas. We know where we will be staying on our next trip to Maine.

Staff was friendly, and very helpful! Our room was spotless, and fresh! It was quiet, and comfortable. The price was high but worth it! It was more competitive than surrounding hotels, and I think a FAR better stay! We will be coming back to stay, for sure, and have highly recommended it to our Family and Friends! Thank You, Best Western White House Inn for one of the best stays I ever had the pleasure of experiencing!

Room Tip: Call in, they are more then willing to work with you!

The White House Inn is in what appears to be a bit of an industrial area. Driving there after midnight caused me a bit of concern about the location. However, the hotel is very nice, there were no safety concerns.

It is a quaint hotel with a presidential schtick. The front desk was very helpful both upon check in and check out.

The breakfast was sparse, but at least it wasn't all carbs.

I've been visiting Bangor for 20 plus years and always thought this hotel was a truck stop hotel. This week, when I couldn't get a room at one of the usual chains, I checked Trip Advisor and was surprised to see such positive reviews so I took a chance. I'm happy I did!
The hotel is immaculate and the room I had was like new -- no complaints whatsoever. I could easily get Internet access, park close by and they provide a free full breakfast in the morning. These are the primary things I think business travelers are concerned with. You can walk to Dysarts truck stop to eat or buy provisions and fill up your tank. Although I didn't check them out, there is a bar,a hot tub and an exercise room. The outdoor heated pool looked well kept. I will definitely stay here again.

If you don't like the US Presidents as decoration, then this is NOT the hotel for you. At every turn, there's something Presidential in some form. From pins to puzzles to paintings of EVERY President (even Obama in an older-style painting), it's everywhere.

Thankfully the staff overcomes the kitsch effect of it all and really went the extra mile for our stay. The woman who tended to the free breakfast area in the morning gave us fantastic recommendations that helped us have a great day in and around Acadia National Park.

And the breakfast is good, too. It's pretty standard: eggs, fruit, breads, make-your-own Belgian waffle, cereal, etc. And there's quite a bit of seating.

One thing we LOVED about this hotel is that it's less than a city block away from Dysart's, the truck stop that serves FANTASTIC food. Not just truck-stop fantastic, but flatout fantastic! It was really easy to grab great food, then relax in our hotel room.

Our room also had a door that entered into the hotel and one that went out to the parking lot (like a motel). That was pretty convenient, even if the hotel hallway part had some smoking/pet stench in it.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that our staff was very helpful to you. We have capitalized on our name The White House including right to the architectual design of our new addition. Many of the things we have were given to us by guests who have found the items in their travels and have thought of us. We are glad you got to experience the beauty of Acadia National Park and Maine itself. We hope that you will visit our state again and look forward to hosting you in the future.

A few years ago we traveled to the west coast and used mostly Best Western for our Hotels. We always trusted them for good value and nice rooms....then we had many bad Best Westerns in a row and stopped looking for them.
The Best Western White House Inn has given us a new look and feel for this hotel chain. Great rooms and price friendly staff quiet night...all good.
