2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very soon after checking into our room, I noticed a strong tobacco smell which seemed odd for a non-smoking room. Then, there was a strong diesel smell and I realized that the AC unit likely was somehow venting outside air even though we did not have it on. Two days of unpleasant odors followed. Another guest complained at the desk... More

Our bus of 47 enjoyed the hotel stay here for two nights. The employees were so nice and helpful. We had 26 rooms and no one had any complaints. We are looking forward to staying there again in a couple of weeks with 51 more people. Highly recommend it!

We ate dinner and Diamond Tours threw us a great party! The bar is loaded with top shelf liquor and the bar tender was great. The hotel has so much to offer. Indoor pool and outside pool. Much to do and it's centrally located as well. I would stay here if I visit Maine again in the near future.

We'd read the reviews that stated that the place was a bit on the older side, which is true. Other than waking up with a burning throat (mold?), however, it was kind of charming; like time traveling back to the '80s. Breakfast pickings were slim and other than coffee we didn't even bother. The worst part, though, was that the... More

I stayed here because the seminar I was attending was hosted in this hotel but i do not plan to ever stay here again. The bed and pillows were not comfortable but the room was clean. The employees were not that friendly nor were they very helpful. The food in the bar was NOT good and they were stingy with... More

I slept very good, ate very good, and swam very good in indoor and outdoor pools. Very friendly and comfortable place. Location was exactly what I wanted ... not downtown, close to supermarket, shopping and restaurants.

This hotel was an older, sprawling building. A lot of walking down corridors involved. They have a deal with American Cruise Lines, so they had a shuttle service to the dock where our boat was located. The rooms were clean, with a refrigerator, no micro wave. Nice enough, but this is not the ritz. I suppose it was priced a... More

Having stayed at budget hotels before, I was wary of what was in store during our stay at Fireside Inn. I am happy to say we were delightfully surprised by our accommodations. We had a handicapped accessible room that was quiet and conveniently located. In spite of the 90+ degree weather, the room was nice and cool. The king sized... More

Wonderful week-long stay, thanks to comfy bed and pillows; friendly, professional and hospitable vibe; covered sitting area by outdoor pool, with tables that allowed for enjoying drinks and food, and pretty lights at night; kind and generous staff who answered requests with a "yes" (e.g., bringing drinks from lounge to pool area, lingering after hours while enjoying complimentary breakfast, substituting...
