“Beware of Horrible Inn Keepers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2004

My husband and I stayed at The Ocean View for Labor Day weekend to have a peaceful, romantic weekend. While we were there we noticed the inn keepers, Bob and Carol, were a bit festidious, but we had a fine time regardless. We relaxed and left refreshed. The following week I notice a charge for $150 on top of the $1100 I had already paid! I called to inquire and spoke with Bob who was offensive and unprofessional. They claimed it was for additional cleaning! We are sure the room was not left in disarray and in fact, we brought out our own trash each day! When I asked specifically what the issue was Bob claimed there was food stains on the bedspread and they "had to wash the sheets"!! My husband and I did not eat in bed at all. And, a B&B that doesn't want to wash sheets in between guests is downright scary to me. These people did not even have the decency to call us. We did not "party", we did not leave an unusual mess. These people are greedy and we have disputed this charge with our credit card co. It's not because we need the money, but because we know this extra charge is unjust. Beware before booking at The Ocean View in Maine.
