We arrived here having been at 5 Lakes Lodge in Millinocket, a B & B that was second to none. We knew that nothing else would compare, and were we right! The Moorings is the worst place we have ever statyed. Firstly, the location is terrible. There is nothing pretty about their site. It sits in an industrial area, in front of a boat works, beside a run down trailer with garbage all over, and sort of overlooks the harbor. Even their own grounds had no appeal for sitting out. No trees, no comfortable lawn chairs. There were piles of wood sitting on the grass. Very ugly. Not at all how the internet pictures make it look.
Then up to our room - the Silver Spray Suite. I'm not sure you could call it a suite. There was a completely useless sitting room facing the parking lot and the boat place in the back. The balcony overlooked the tar papered roof of another part of the building. Again - really ugly. The sink in the bathroom is rusted, and the bathtub took forever to drain. Nothing a day of travelling for a long awaited shower, to end up standing in the water! Yuck! The Queen size bed was very soft - and I'm not sure that the sheets had even been changed. They certainly didn't come close to fitting the mattress and were literally thread bare. I was so put off by the odor, by the lack of decor, and the dirty rugs, I lay on top of the bed and wouldn't even get in. How they can charge $195.00 a night for a place like this, is unconscionable.
Breakfast the next morning!!! Well, if you like stale donuts, coffee in a tiny styrofoam type cup, or cereal in a paper bowl, this is the place for you. When we saw the offerings (not even any juice) we checked out and left. Don't be fooled by the internet pictures. They look nothing like the real deal. This place is old, cluttered, and smelly. The rooms are very small, the building looks better on the outside than it is inside.
