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.

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.
