3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2009

Great helpful staff, this inn does require a few upgrades but it is is neat and clean and has very very large rooms, would be ideal for two couples or traveling with kids, the rooms are alot larger than your average hotel room, the free breakfast was perfect and if you want a larger breakfast there is a very nice resturant with good prices, this hotel appears to be run by a religious group... not that its a bad thing but "God Be With You" and "God Bless You" was said more than once by the staff in our short stay, Good value... $70 a night, I am not sure what rooms go for in this area but we found this a fair price, Free internet but we did not try it.

I was very please to able to found a room that would fix five adults in one room. The breakfast was great. The Lighthouse cafe has great food. I recommend this place to other to stay at. The staff was very plesant and helpful. This is great place to stay if you are traveling to the downeast area or just staying in Bangor.

We stayed here on 2 different occasions and felt that the new owners had gone out of the way to make it comfortable and appealing. Decorated in a cozy country lodge fashion, we found the rooms in the annex building to be spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We had a fridge and an electric fireplace which our teens thought was very cool. A fabulous breakfast followed the next morning. We don't go to Bangor/Brewer often, but this place is our new favorite place to stay (much better than the chain motels in my opinion). We recommend it highly.

We were referred to this property by a friend who lives in Bangor and stayed there for three nights. The lobby was welcoming, the rooms were clean (we loved the electric fireplace!) and the service was excellent. The breakfast was outstanding and the Lighthouse Cafe is a wonderful addition. Their food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. We were very impressed and will definitely stay there again if we are back in the area.

  • Liked — Christian atmosphere, genuine helpfulness

I hope those of you looking for a nice, quiet, newly renovated Inn with a staff that is outstanding you won't hesitate to stay here. The staff and owners are kind and caring and always have a smile. The new owners are a wonderful couple who truly care about people. That is why they purchased this Inn to make a difference in this community. They will make your stay a wonderufl and pleasant one. They will do all they can to make this a wonderful and memorable stay for you and your family. You will feel warm and welcome and glad you chose this Inn.
Remember, you can't please all the people all the time but you can try and that is what they do. So when you read the negative reviews know that they are bitter and unhappy people in the world and that they need to be around people like the folks at Vacationland Village Inn & Suites more and their life would be happier. Please read the positive responses and make a decision to stay here and you will be blessed. They have concerts in the Cafe every Friday and Saturday night. If you are local grab some family and friends and join my husband and I and our friens there for a great evening. You won't reget it!

  • Liked — The large suites, cleaniess, warm and inviting rooms
  • Disliked — Absolutely nothing. It is a great place!

I've been wanting to try Vacationland Village for a while and finally gave it a try. I never stayed here before but it's been under new ownership for the past year or so. It's obvious they have done some upgrades. The lobby is VERY nice. The room I had was one of the older ones but was newly painted, had new carpet, nice bathroom and it was clean. The furniture was old but not of main concern to me. The draperies barely covered the window and the mattress was soft - not a big distraction but both items should probably be replaced. My biggest problem was the the walls and floors of this building are VERY thin and noise definitely carried thru. The breakfast buffet was magnificent! For the money the place was decent. I've stayed in other places at that price in the area and they were horrible and dirty. This is definitely worth it's value with the breakfast buffet. Definitely worth a try!

  • Liked — It was clean, great breakfast buffet and price
  • Disliked — Thin walls and floors
