“Spacious and Clean!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband and I were lucky to grab a Saturday nite here over Labor Day Weekend!!Large room with kitchenette. Hot water and terrific pressure in shower( better than at home!!)Large , clean outdoor pool and small but nice hot tub!!Beautiful water views from back of motel units(they also have cute little cottages to rent) Only four stars because bed was only fairly comfy( had some sort of foam topper). .. Hubby thought it was fine. Set well back off road, great location!

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

We just spent a few days here after staying here some years ago. A great place for families, but great also for us with grown families. It really has everything you want in a beach vacation. First, it's close to the beach. Or if you don't feel like the beach grab a chair by the pool. There is also a hot tub, an indoor pool, a laundry room, exercise room, pool tables, tennis court. You get the idea, there is something for everyone here.

We are local Mainers who decided last minute to do a "staycation" and booked a room at the CVR. The place is awesome! The room was spacious and very clean....plenty of room for our family. We had 2 double beds and a pull out couch plus a kitchenette....the room was clean and well equipped with dishes, dishsoap, full size fridge, shampoo/conditioner, etc. The AC was nice and cold and the wall mounted flat screen was great. Our room was right near the pool and was ready before check in time....we swam the afternoon away then ordered pizza delivery from a local pizzeria. After dinner we walked into town, about a 10-15 min walk...it was a perfect way to end our super fun day. The beds were comfy and we slept well...continental breakfast was good: fruit, oatmeal, cereal, Condgons donuts, coffee, juice...it was perfect. We swam in the pool again until checkout. We wish we had another night so we could have taken out the rowboats or went across the sandbar to the beach...that will have to wait til next year because we will definitely be back!! Many a great family memory was made at CVR!!!

Full disclosure. I am reviewing this on my previous years stays. I have stayed at CVR every year for the past 15+ years. From what I understand, they have made some changes this year, and I will update my review if need be.

The good.

Great location, it is a 15 minute walk from the center of town, and probably a 30-40 minute walk to the main beach.
The rooms are clean and the grounds are well kept.
They have some BBQ grills near the pool for guest use as well.
They also are right on the tidal river, which you can walk across during low tide to get to the beach. This area of the beach remains less crowded than the main beach.
During High tide you can use thier boats for free.
There is also plenty of parking on site.
Thier outdoor pool is great, and the hotub is nice but I don't go in it (i'll explain more in the drawbacks).
The indoor pool is great for if you get stuck with a rainy day.
The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating.


The drawbacks

The continental breakfast is a bit lacking (Congdons donuts, some cereal, milk, juice and coffee), and unless you get there very early, you may not get anything.

The outdoor hottub. It would be great to go in it, but during the day the families use it as a kiddie pool. It is filled with kids thoughout the day, many still in diapers. While I have never seen it, I know some of these kids are probably soiling themselves in there. Yes the water is filtered and chlorinated, but I still won't go in it. Personally, I think children who are not potty trained should not be allowed in there.

All in all, this is a nice place to stay and I will continue to return year after year. If they can keep the kids in diapers out of the hottub this year, I will bump up the review another point. :-)

Room Tip: my favorite room is adjacent to the lobby right by the pool. The rooms in the lodge don't have...

I stayed here in summer 1984 and June 2012. It was both times a very nice place for holidays. The romms are clean.The bed are very nice and comfortable. Two pools inside and out. Don't need the breakfast, but.... all together - a nice place to stay!
