What make the Ft. Knox Inn one of our favorite stops? A polite and accommodating staff, Clean comfortable rooms, Ample, easy parking and its location provides easy access to Bangor, Belfast, and Ellsworth. The view from those rooms facing the River is wonderful. Old fashion Ambiance and style. We will be back.

The hotel was perfectly situated in the quaint town of Bucksport, Maine. All the shops were in walking distance. We loved walking on the boardwalk along the Penobscot River at night time. Hubs from nearby Blue Hill. I kept telling him if we have to move to Maine, this town would be in our top 10. The staff was extremely... More

Couldn't provide a more picturesque view! Room was comfortable and clean and the Inn has a friendly atmosphere. Parking is also convenient and access to nearby areas is easy. Good location for a several day stay in the area.

The room, staff, and view were all wonderful! We would definitely stay here again, Best pizza we ever had was just up the street. Nice river walk as well. No hesitation to recommend it to friends, family and strangers :-)

This place was amazing, all the staff was friendly and helpful, our room was extremely clean and comfortable with a great water view. The people in this little town are so nice. I will return this fall for a week end getaway.

Found this hotel last minute after a reservation fell through with a different hotel. Didn't know much about it, only booked because it was the only hotel with a room available. Upon arrival, we were happily greeted by name, given the room keys, and experienced great customer service. Our room was decent. It was bigger than we expected. The beds... More

The photos of this property showing the water views are accurate and the lights on the bridge and the Fort cross the river are beautiful. This is a simple lodging about 45 minutes drive to Acadia National Park. This summer, for the parks 100 birthday it was flooded with visitors and several roads were closed. This lodging, though simple, was... More

We spent one night here as part of our weekend in New England, we were not aware of the scenic view until we arrived. Looking out the window of our room, we had a direct vista of the Narrows Bridge, Olde Fort Knox and the Penobscot River, a postcard right there. The room was clean and modern, the staff friendly...

A simple, clean and pleasant hotel. It is situated right on the river, with a delightful little river walkway just outside, and the small town center just across the street. Room was clean and staff were solid and helpful.
