The place is convenient if you have someone at the hospital. However, it is dark and gloomy. They have had the same bedspreads since 2002. The wallpaper is peeling, the ceilings are stained. It is just dark and dreary. For $89 a night you'd expect a little better. Being in a hospital environment all day, you would hope the place... More

The lobby is small, outdated and depressing. The staff is not very helpful. The room was small and outdated but more importantly, it was poorly cleaned and maintained. The paint and wallpaper was peeling, the finish on the furniture was peeling or worn off... The continental breakfast was pretty sad. But there were some positives. The hotel is right next... More

We had wanted to stay nearer Bar Harbor in high season but left a booking until too late & found ourselves here. The door was locked but we were admitted & the room & en-suite were fine. Breakfast was a "help yourself" but had adequate variety. An ideal location if you want to visit the eastern Maine Medical Centre, or... More

This hotel gives a steep discount to patients and families of patients using EMMC. It's a bit of a drive to the mall and restaurants if you're considering staying here for shopping purposes. The hotel is clean although it is an old property and there isn't much luxury. You can rent a microwave and refrigerator for an extra fee if... More

Stayed here while my elderly 87 yr. father was having eye surgery and needed to return first thing in the morning. This is opened to the public. It is actually hooked to the Hospital through tunnels. It was originally used for nurses & Doctors years ago. At first impression it was pleasing. 2 rooms. 2 queen beds & bath in... More

We found this place by accident some years ago and have stayed there several times since and we were satisfied each time. The second last time was in 2013 and our opinion of the place as acceptable continued. However, our opinion changed dramatically last Saturday night. When we stay in hotels we do the standard "bed bug protocol". This involves... More

We have stayed here several times in the past but our experience this week was terrible! The room was so dirty that it concerns me with people staying here then carrying those germs to their loved ones in the hospital. I picked up the phone to call the front desk and the phone cradle was crusted with dirt. Plus there... More

Once you learn this used to be a nurses' dorm, you can appreciate the design of this place. It is functional. ..you don't go here for a holiday, you go there because you have business in the area. It even has a tunnel to the hospital. Bed was comfy, my room overlooked the river which was a plus. It is... More
