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. The hotel room is dated (worn... More

Thank you for your extensive review. You describe in detail how much you enjoyed the facilities, the breakfast and the friendliness of the staff. You also state that the room is dated, which is true. While we are always upgrading our facilities, we do it on an on-gong basis, rather than a full renovation at one time. This allows us... More

Thank you for your compliments. When you say "pet friendly", this is what my boss posted years ago: "Dogs are welcome in this hotel.

This hotel is great. I specifically needed a dog friendly place. Their dog friendly rooms are on the first floor & open out to a huge grassy area that goes right down to the ocean.

Situated on Route 1 and waterfront, every room faces the ocean. The property is older but well kept, clean and updated. The bed was very comfortable and room reasonably well appointed. Each room faces the ocean so the small balcony is perfect for soaking in the beauty of the bay any time of day or night. This location is great... More

We ate here after a long trip, the food was ok but nothing special, it was overpriced for what we had, wait staff was attentive, dining room wasn't put together well, the dining room was crowded and I wouldn't have been able to get my wife's wheelchair in here
