A good hotel and as some people have said a little dated compared to others. Saying that the bed was very comfortable, room very clean, good powerful shower, everything worked, excellent quiet air-con and best Wi-Fi we had had in Maine so far. A supermarket is within easy walking but the town center is about 20 min walk, however this... More

Booked this since reviews and price were good, but disappointed that it was a much farther walk to the waterfront than I expected. Room was clean and beds were comfortable, but very dated. Restaurant was not bad, but nothing outstanding. Seems as though there are other places with far more charm and in better locations, but then, that may be... More

Location is very near downtown Camden without being in the middle of the crowds. We have been to this Inn on two different seasons and have had good experiences both times. We would recommend this for location and value.

It's a bit of an older inn; but it's been well maintained and is very clean. The price was reasonable also. The only problem we found was that the A/C unit was a bit noisy--and I forgot to tell the staff that. If nobody tells them, they can't fix it. We had a room in a small building with only... More

We pulled into Camden without hotel reservations and decided to stay at the Cedar Crest Inn. We were glad we did. The gentleman and the front desk was warm and welcoming. Our room was clean and comfortable. The room comes with a complementary continental breakfast, which was delicious. I highly recommend the Cedar Crest.

Was in Camden solo to visit a friend; was looking for good, clean, basic accommodations and made a reservation at the Cedar Crest Inn.

We stopped here on a whim to prolong our little mini-trip by a day.

Three of us stayed here for two nights. Our room was immaculate, beds were cozy and amenities were comfortable: lush towels, good coffee, quality linens, lovely spring landscape, and close to everything. I would recommend breakfast at the Elm Street Grill - very conveniently on the property.

Nothing much to say about this one.
