Our 5 night stay at the Island View Inn was too short! We loved the nautical room decor and the beautiful view out our porch screened windows. We spent a great deal of time out there. Some people complained about it being enclosed, but we loved that it gave us an extra space and protection from the mosquitoes at night!... More

We absolutely LOVED staying here! The view literally can't be beat, and the rooms were so clean, and well decorated. The staff was so friendly, and we so enjoyed our time here. Each morning we took a stroll down the hillside to the little beach area where there are a few chairs with umbrellas. So picturesque, peaceful and relaxing...the ideal... More

We stayed here 6 nights. The room was very comfortable with a pleasant balcony and a great view of the bay. It was notably very clean with a roomy bathroom. The location was great for us with easy access to downtown and the National Park. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Our family has been a regular at this hotel for good number of years. I am sad to say that the level of service has been declining in the recent years and had been spotty at times. Our most recent trip was certainly a low point. We were promised a room with a view for 2 of our 4 night... More

Awesome Inn, the rooms were so adorable and clean. Love the nautical design. Kids enjoyed playing hide and seek in the garden area while splashing around in the water. We will definately return again.

I reserved a room at the Island View and was excited about our stay. When we checked in I was completely blown away at just how beautiful the room, grounds and view was. It was by far the nicest place we have stayed in a long time. The staff was nothing but superb! The pool was gorgeous and heated! I... More

First the good. Big rooms, clean, nicely decorated (oars on the wall?) and recently refreshed, nice pool, interesting enclosed porch in front of each room., comfy bed and, again, a killer view of Penobscot Bay. The quirky or puzzling? Big screen TV but in standard definition transmission on all channels. What??? Few amenities: no available snacks, no laundry room, no... More

We had an amazing stay at this Inn. The staff is friendly, the view breathtaking, the rooms well appointed. They have excellent AC as it was hotter than normal while we were in Maine. The infinity pool is heated and so nice. I loved the private beach that you can walk along and look for beach glass. Will definitely come... More

This inn is charming, very well decorated and comfortable. It is definitely an upscale place with lots of extra touches. We enjoyed sitting on our enclosed porch and watching the water. It does not have an elevator so request a ground floor room if you want to avoid stairs.

Great place to stay. Nice quiet inn, the room was nice with a beautiful view from the enclosed balcony. The infinity pool was awesome. The staff was helpful and very friendly. We are hoping to go back next summer with the rest of our family.
