250 Main is a delightful place to stay! Classy and casual, modern and warm. It’s quite fun to wander the five floors to look at all the art by local artists. Easy walking to downtown, and wonderful hiking in the area. Dinner at Primo is a must… make your reservation in advance! Staff at 259 were helpful and welcoming. We’ll be back!

Hotel's Favorite
250 Main remains perfect in nearly every way! We've been staying here twice a year since our first visit in 2016 and we can't wait to return. Our 4 night stay here last week was once again - fantastic! Great location, awesome staff, 'spectacular' views, love the modern-meets-industrial design elements, museum quality art displayed throughout, strong Rock City coffee for those 4:30am sunrise photo ops, whimsical graphics (on keycards, door cards, stair risers) and did I mention the awesome staff and views?! We'll be booking again for later this year (and next) and look forward to our next visit!

This is a surprisingly good hotel that tries extra hard to make you satisfied. Small extras are great: you are greeted with a drink, breakfast is perfect and included, and there is a fantastic rooftop patio with an expansive view of the harbor. Very nice staff. Rooms are extremely large, clean, stylish. The town itself is not so exciting…there is primos down the road though! But really a great find here!

We have greatly enjoyed our past visits to the 250 Main, but not so much this time. Maybe it's because I paid the most I have ever pair for a hotel room, and did not feel it was good value. The hotel is still gorgeous, with a snappy contemporary feel and original art in the corridors which rotates periodically. The staff is still competent and friendly. But there are now some glitches which should not occur at this astonishing price point. (I should mention that Maine hotel rates do soar in the summer, but this is still the highest room rate I have encountered in a life of extensive travel). On my last visit, I found my room very small, and complained about it. Apparently no one recorded this, and I received the same room this time. The wall-mounted TV was significantly askew, which was visually annoying. But much more disappointing was that for the first day, the room was freezing. There are no instructions for the heating/AC system in the room, and I could not improve the temperature. A manager came up and seemed to adjust the system, but the room stayed unpleasantly cold for the next 24 hours, after which it somehow returned to a civilized temperature. The 250 Main used to offer a very nice breakfast buffet. It was understandable that it was reduced to cold options only because of Covid, but last year's breakfast was much better than what was offered this time. It was so blah that for our second morning, we avoided it and chose to purchase breakfast elsewhere. (Note that from Sunday through Tuesday, there is nothing open before 7 am, and at that time, only the Atlantic Bakery, which is very good). What was offered at the hotel was small croissants without any butter or jam), one flavor of yogurt (the only one I dislike), peaches (which are out all day) and an organic oatmeal which proved difficult to prepare and was chalky and tasteless. We have enjoyed this hotel very much in the past, and are saddened by its apparent (and hopefully temporary) decline. I find myself reluctant to return.

Mr Shain, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I would like to apologize that things didn't meet your expectations. We always aim to make every visit better than the last. I assure you we do record guest preferences for future stays. Unfortunately, at the time you reserved, our Fabulous rooms were the only option remaining. We recommend reserving more than two weeks ahead in future in order to take advantage of our full offering of six different room styles. All our rooms feature different attributes - for a special occasion, we recommend a spacious Fantastic room, a Balcony, or our Spectacular. We would love to have you back again. If you ever change your mind and choose to return, please let me know personally and I will be sure to facilitate the best possible booking experience and room assignment. My best, Ruth Starr

The staff and accommodations were top notch. Spacious room with very modern amenities. Best nights sleep in some time as bed was most comfortable. Great roof deck with awesome view of the Rockland. harbor. Easy walking distance to local restaurants and shopping. Look forward to returning in the early fall.

250 Main has a great modern feel to it. The staff was absolutely wonderful and did everything they could to make our visit wonderful. They acknowledged that it was our anniversary several times and greeted us warmly each time they saw us. It meant a lot! The roof was the highlight for us - very beautiful views of the bay! The bathrooms also had heated floors and a shower that we absolutely loved! The level of noise is what keeps this hotel from earning a 5 from me. You can hear EVERYTHING - doors opening, conversations being had, footsteps, and most of all, the cars/trucks/motorcycles that go up and down Main Street/Route 1. We had a room that overlooked the bay on Main Street, and it was louder than I could have ever anticipated. Another thing that was surprising was that there weren't blackout curtains in the room. Usually BnBs don't have them, but since this is a boutique hotel I assumed they would. Our room faced the east, so we were not only woken up by sound, but the sun as well. There are so many great things about this property, but the lack of sleep was hard on us. My suggestion would be to provide complimentary ear plugs and sleep masks. We know they can't control the building noises or the traffic on the street, so this would have been a great touch to show they were acknowledging the issue. I would highly recommend they look into black out curtains! So much potential for this hotel to take it to the next level!

Very posh - deep carpets, comfortable bed and linens, lots of room, tight bathroom but huge shower with heated towel rack. Some style choices were less functional (faucet handle). Great original art in hallways, prints in room (our room had a print of a piece we had just seen in the gallery down the street. Roof deck would be great in warmer weather. Thursday farmers market across the street! Simple but good quality "to go" breakfast (croissant, blueberries, yogurt, packaged cheese, instant gluten free oatmeal tubs). Very easy to walk to downtown and museums (less than 5 minutes). Part of Stash hotel rewards program.

Great, walk-to-everything location. The lobby is a wonderful place to hang out and visit. The staff helped with our special requests. Make sure to spend some time on the roof deck for great views of the harbor.

This new and lovely boutique hotel was the perfect stop on our trip down East. Our room was named the spectacular room and it was we it was we had 180゚ views of the Harbor And the room was spacious and comfortable. Our only complaint was the rain shower head which we just personally don't care for anywhere. The staff is lovely too. There is Free parking across the street. And while you're in Rockland don't miss the great art galleries and an excellent restaurant called Primo

We loved all the attention to detail. The breakfast was exceptional. My partner was very impressed with the hotel. It’s big contrast to the large chain hotels run by bean counters. Despite the reasonable price, they don’t skimp. I will return.
