My husband is a long haul trucker and I am a travel agent. I was on the road with him and we did a last minute stay here. They offered a great rate for truckers and free wifi that wasn't slow. The room was exceptionally clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean. The shower had... More

Yes this place is old but, in my opinion, it has aged gracefully and it is well kept. I actually enjoyed my one night here. Why I had to think about it is because I have never been in a hotel that was laid out so strangely. The lobby is kind of tucked down in the basement out of the... More

We stopped here with 60 members of our car club and used about 30 rooms. We were impressed with the friendly staff. They handled our group our group quickly and helped our members with their requests throughout our visit. Some evenings have complimentary wine and cheese. Our group enjoyed this.

Returning to this hotel is like going home to visit friends. Everyone is pleasant, going out of their way to make you feel at home. Rooms are comfy with a good size fridge and the breakfast has s nice selection to keep anyone happy. Love those whoopie pies we get when we check in!

We visited Colby College and stayed at this hotel. It is conveniently located only a couple of miles from the campus. The rooms are very big, clean and comfortable. Breakfast and coffee are complimentary, and there is a nice outdoor pool.

Repeat visitor to this hotel to visit relatives with a nice experience each time. Large clean rooms, microwave and good size fridge. Morning breakfast has a wide selection of fruit, yogurt, various bagels, muffins and hot sandwiches that you can eat in the cafe or bring back to your room. And the welcoming whoopie pies are the best.

This is a small chain hotel with locations in Maine and perhaps NH. In Waterville, the hotel is right next to the highway and adjacent to a Walmart plaza. I'd compare it to a Fairfield Inn, but with a few amenities that made our one-night stay better than expected. Namely: very clean, queen beds, small fridge in room, fabulous water... More

If you are looking for a no frills clean place for a night or two, this is a good option. We were on a college tour and needed a room that was clean and had two queen beds. Often times you only find double beds. This hotel was a good price for a clean room.
