Visited friends in nearby Bangor but for some reason all hotels were full so chose this place near the water. Nice location but we only got a room w a view to street and parking area on their main level. Staff was friendly but hotel is old and it shows. It was also expensive for what it was worth, but...

Our room and bathroom were very clean and smelled nice. The windows look out over Fort Knox and the Penobscot Observatory Bridge. It is a fantastic view! With the great view and a jogging trail right out front along the water, I give this hotel a thumbs up if you're looking for a place to stay that is away from... More

Very basic but very clean. Nice showers and nice beds. I highly suggest the few extra dollars for the view of the bay, the bridge is beautiful. Electric has definitely been redone at some point as there were 7 switches in our 2 queen bed room. Still very acceptable. Continental breakfast is weak, cereal and Englis muffins, but good however... More

We booked 2 rooms well in advance for our sons graduation from MMA- the morning of the graduation I let the water run for 15 minutes- still ice cold.

Not the newest, most luxurious or fanciest hotel, HOWEVER... very clean, friendly and helpful staff, very well located. Not fantastic breakfast (prepacked danish) but good coffee which is half the battle. Walking distance to several good restaurants, plenty of convenient parking.

We had a very nice say at this Inn. The staff was so helpful and courteous and made us feel like we were good friends instead of just guests. We would recommend this Inn to anyone as a superb place to stay.

I liked this hotel, it was clean, but old fashion, needed updating, staff was very nice. Most of the rooms had a water view, so ask for it, and it was a reasonable price for what it was. There was a good restaurant Macleod across the street.
