Although the lobby is well used and a bit dated, that is well compensated by a cheerful accommodating staff and excellent housekeeping staff. Many of the rooms have been updated and they are in the process of completely redoing one of the wings. They have been working hard to compete with national chains, so you have plenty of amenities, a...

Thank you for your kind words, and the unsolicited plug for our current renovations. We are currently taking one wing back to the walls and redoing it. We're taking out wallpaper, carpet, and all the furniture and lighting and replacing it with new. In the other wing, we are replacing furniture. We have new WIFI equipment going in that should...

Although the Fireside Inn appears modest, it is clean, comfortable and light on the wallet. It is located close to I-95 and it is approximately 1.25 hours from Sugarloaf where we ski. For an overnight stay, you cannot beat the price and location.

We have stayed at this hotel twice a year, for the last several years. We stay there on our way to Sugarloaf, and on our way back. Our room is always ready for us on time. Rooms are clean, and everything is always in good working condition. The Hot Tub is available year round... and a great place to take...

My husband and I traveled to the Waterville area recently for a family funeral. We booked a king room with a gas fireplace. The room was large, the bed quite comfortable, and the gas fireplace provided warmth and ambiance during a blizzard that raged outside. The front desk staff was very friendly and courteous. The hotel, located next to Interstate...

Thank you for your kind review. I'm sorry you were up here for a hospital visit. We see many outpatient surgery patients. It works out well. We're about $3,000 less per night than staying in the hospital, and our beds are more comfortable. Seriously, I'm happy to read that you enjoyed your stay. I hope everything went well with your...

great prices, clean rooms, we had a gas fireplace for this stay-awesome to have in January. Continental "plus" type breakfast, but there are enough cereal choices for kids. The restaurant (Governor's) attached to the hotel is a nice alternative if you don't feel like wandering far.

Thank you for staying with us in January. I'm pleased that you booked a fireplace room, and that it added to the ambiance of the room. Since we heat most of the year up here, it's a great choice for just about any month save July or August. Thanks for writing. We look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Barry...
