Travelers' Choice
Spruce Point Inn is a beautiful oceanfront destination situated on over 55 acres of shoreline fringed with tall spruce woodland. As the resort sits “off the beaten path,” getaways here feel like a genuine retreat. Located about an hour "down east" from Portland, Spruce Point Inn is a gem among Maine resorts, differentiated from other oceanfront properties by the acres of woodland, gardens and trails. Born as a private retreat for captains of industry seeking an oceanside escape for fishing, hunting and rusticating, Spruce Point Inn continues to burnish its legacy, offering an iconic coastal Maine experience. Guests here enjoy the luxury of leisure and simplicity – tailoring the Spruce Point Inn experience to their own pace. They may enjoy as much, or as little, as they’d like. Either way, they always leave feeling refreshed. Recognized by major travel media as “one of the best resorts in New England,” this vacation destination attracts all generations with a timeless appeal. Putting Spruce Point in the historical context of Maine200, the Inn has attracted travelers from across the United States for more than a century and has shared historic moments with national, international and Maine leaders as well as families and friends, each creating their own “oceanside memories made in Maine.” Spruce Point Inn is the premier Maine resort, an ideal venue for romantic or family getaways, and a distinctive destination for memorable reunions, seaside weddings and executive retreats.

I wanted to love it at spruce point inn. It was planned as a little getaway after a year of not spending, so I was ok to splurge. On the positive side, the staff for the most part were lovely. But there simply are way too few of them to provide the upkeep and service the property demands and their prices set for expectations. My very pricey room was in disrepair- the lock handle on the door fell off when I turned it, the rug was stained, the porch roof paint was peeling. But it also wasn’t cleaned sufficiently: hair in the shower, a dead bug behind the toilet, and enough hair on the dust ruffle to suggest it hadn’t been changed in quite a while. But also the pool area, which is where I spent much of my time, was not maintained well throughout the day: discarded towels and water bottles would sit for hours. And it took me about 10 calls to the spa to book an appointment before I was told that extension was broken and given the spa manager’s cell number. There’s more, but suffice it to say this hotel is sorely underinvested in. The staff are doing their best but are simply overwhelmed. I’ll echo another review: if you’re going to charge super high prices, you’ve got to deliver the experience that matches. I’m left feeling both disappointed and with that awful feeling you get when you’ve vastly overpaid for something.

Beautiful views. Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Lots of outdoor things to do. The perfect get-away. We enjoyed a long weekend that enabled us to enjoy Boothbay Harbor and surrounding areas in Mid-Coast of Maine. So much to do!

I didn’t expect perfect service given labor market challenges, but oh my gosh it was terrible. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother coming. The resort is so *tired*. Clearly the owners are not keeping up and that is visible throughout. There is not enough staff. Check in was at 4, but we couldn’t actually check in until 4:45 because housekeeping was so backed up (but there were no apologies from the front desk - seriously, horrendous service). When we finally got into our room, one of the beds hadn’t been changed (gross) and that took another 35 minutes to remedy. The place is tired. The staff seems pretty disgruntled. I really wish we had never come.

Staff very friendly and location and teal estate remarkable BUT…. The lodging business is brutally hard, especially with this labor market and in a location that demands lots of staff and capital expense. I get it. But, don’t charge these rates (even when you can get away with it bc of Covid) if you can’t deliver. Housekeeping can’t keep up (not their fault, it’s management’s), rooms needs attention (towel racks!), and SERVE COFFEE AND MUFFINS AGAIN! Don’t make your limited staff go back and forth (and guest waiting) when want early morning cup. Have a coffee station for goodness sake. Not that hard. Don’t pinch that penny. My sense is this property is struggling to make sense and owner(s) hesitant to invest appropriately plus struggling like everyone else to get labor. After coming here three other times over last 20 years, I want this place to win. Plus, know how hard it is to operate, especially now. But, if you charge the rate and want to be in the game, you gotta perform.

I'll start with the grounds. They are lovely, and the location is beautiful. But for the price you pay, you'd be better off in a Hampton Inn. We stayed in one of the Cottage Rooms, and the porch was black with either mold or dirt; it severely needed a good cleaning or power washing. The room was okay, except during our four days no one ever came to clean or make the beds or empty the trash. Okay, not expected given how nice this place is, and I realize there are a lot of staffing problems these days. We could live with it,. BUT THEY ONLY GIVE YOU FOUR PAPER CUPS. FOR FOUR DAYS. Figure this: two people, one coffee maker, and no bathroom cups. So we were constantly running to the front desk for more cups. Also, the tub/shower is one of the slipperiest I've ever encountered ANYWHERE in my entire life. Weird, I know. It's like it's made of greased glass. They need to put either non-slip stickers on the bottom or provide a grab bar or something. It is EXTREMELY dangerous. So be forewarned.
