Stayed 2 nights in August. Beautiful location with a friendly staff. Warm cookies one evening were a nice touch. Breakfast was standard for hotels, such as Hampton Inn, with free breakfast. Our issue was that we were on the first floor and apparently it was a pet room. It wreaked of dog. One corner smelled of urine. Had we know... More

This is a nice AND affordable place to stay with easy access to Bar Harbor and Acadia at about 1/3 the price - about an hour's drive through a very pretty piece of Maine to the entrance of the Park Loop Road. The room was quite adequate and came with a comfortable bed, mini-fridge, K-Cup coffee maker and a small... More

Thank you for your kind words! If I were writing a brochure for this hotel, I wouldn't change much of what you said. I would say that there are chairs on the bluff overlooking the water, so you can rest before the walk back up the hill. Thank you again for staying with us, and for writing. We'll see you... More

The room I stayed in was on the lower level which had a great view but the cleanliness or smell of the room didn't make up for it. Mold or mildew on window sill and shower. Told front desk and they offered me febreeze. The next morning I was put in a better room on the main floor. The beds... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your accommodations. We'll search to see which room you were in and correct the issue.

Last minute booking. Well located between key locations on the seashore Maine. 1h30 from Acadia. 30 min from Camden. Hotel is a bit outdated but staff friendliness and location - view so peaceful / quiet from all rooms compensate it. Very clean. Breakfast correct and various enough for all tastes.

Upon arrival with my family and friends, we have been shortly greeted and not helped with the luggage. Rooms have a very bad smell due to the dirty carpet, despite the beautiful location overlooking the sea and port of close town of Belfast. Complimentary breakfast, poor quality as well. Blame their cleanliness most of all!

This hotel's location is prime spot! Every room has a small balcony and every room has an "A" class view of Belfast Bay/Penobscot Bay, furthermore there is a deep and expansive grassy lawn/field at the back of this hotel that guests can walk (and kids can run around in) up to the bay's shoreline.
