This hotel is not only perfectly located in Rockland, it is dog friendly, clean and modern. The morning boxed breakfast was perfect as well as the offer of wine in the evening. I felt safe and looked after even in a pandemic. I was attracted to the art available for purchase. I will be making another reservation very soon because, it’s one of the best choices for an in-state, Mid Coast vacationer like me.

“Home away from home” has always seemed like an ill-fitting descriptor for most hotels. After all, a basic hotel can’t provide the comforts of home, and a great luxury hotel would never simply imitate ordinary domestic life. But then there is a rare type of hotel that does truly succeed at capturing the simple and serene comforts of home. 250 Main is one such hotel. From genial staff and all-day coffee service to the nourishing, subtle, but striking design of the rooms — a stay at 250 Main actually does feel like visiting the home of your most creative and hospitable friend. And don’t get me started on the location and its views. We were (more than) delighted by every aspect of our stay at 250 Main and eagerly look forward to returning.

Incredible location with views over the scenic water front best sunrise I've watched! Safe and welcoming guidelines in place making you feel comfortable on your getaway. Staff was top notch Ruth, Jillian & Kade were very responsive and helpful. The amenities were wonderful and a nice touch for people looking to spend majority of their time in the room. It was extremely clean and overall would recommend to anyone looking to getaway for a while.

My partner and I had a one night stay at the hotel. The staff and facility were top notch. I would highly recomend it. Was surprised to find a modern designed hotel in northern Maine. Nice to get a glass of complimentary wine and a light breakfast we well.

I had found this hotel on Tablet hotels and was excited to try it, but ended up being pretty disappointed. The building itself and lobby were very nice, and the room was fine, although nothing special. The problem was that all of the extras and amenities ended up being let downs. The tv in the room was a 'smart' TV but only had cable, and you couldn't even access the channel guide- you had to look at a printout from the hotel. The TV then stopped working during my stay. The provided tablet in my room was left unplugged and was dead, but even after finally turning on, there was very little info provided. I was expecting that as a listed amenity, it would at least include some kind of guide to the town or restaurants. There was only one elevator that was very slow, so getting up and down from the top floor always took a little while. The roof was nice, but much smaller than expected. The biggest issue was the included breakfast- a yogurt, a cup of blueberries, and a piece of cheese. You also had to request that someone at the front desk go in the back in order to get a cup of coffee. I understand a basic boxed breakfast, but this one was just sad. The people were all very friendly, and maybe in normal times the social aspect and improved breakfast set-up would make this a more enjoyable experience, but I left feeling disappointed.

Hello, We are so very sorry to hear your stay wasn't perfect. While we are a very tiny hotel, only 26 rooms, we always strive to make a big impact. It has been more difficult during Covid - the state of Maine advises us to now keep our coffee station in the back so as to reduce communal contact. Our breakfast has always been a light continental, but the boxed presentation may have a limiting appearance. Separate from the boxes, we serve as many big, hot butter croissants and pain au chocolate as you can eat and fresh squeezed OJ - also hot oatmeal on request. Maybe these didn't appeal - we apologize. As for your TV - this should not have happened at all; our Smart TV's are capable of all the inputs and connectivity you should expect. The TV guide is certainly a digital function on the screen as well; it sounds like your setup needed attention; please accept our regrets. In future, rest knowing we are here 24 hours for you to troubleshoot through this and fix it. Since we somehow missed this opportunity, I want to make it right; I will personally reach out to you by email to correct the situation. I look forward to connecting with you. While we can't expand the size and scope of our property, we hope to make you feel as grand and important as you are to us! Thank you for giving us a try, and we promise many expansive and decadent changes, back to the way things were, as soon as the unusual world circumstances are over. All My Best, Ruth Woodbury Starr General Manager
