Dover Foxcroft, Maine1 contribution
nice time, staff helpful, good food at Governor's, clean rooms, like the flooring in the rooms and the furnishings, getting off the highway is hard as it's a very busy road and lots of traffic but the location itself is quiet as it sits back from the road. Don't know what else to say!

Dear Mary, I am so glad to read that you enjoyed your stay at the Waterville Fireside Inn & Suites. Unfortunately, we have no control over the traffic surrounding our hotel. I am looking forward to your next visit, maybe we could discuss ways to mitigate the worst of the traffic problems? Sincerely, David Connolly

I was totally shocked at how large the room was & how well stocked it was with everything you would need. I traveled with 2 large dogs the room was so immaculate it was unbelievable. This will be the ONLY place I'll ever stay on my future trips to Maine.

Convenient to Colby College, about a 5 min drive. Clean room, comfortable beds, nice staff. Governor's Restaurant is attached and has good breakfasts, and amazing cakes and pies. I am from a warm state, so it was nice for me not to have to bundle up to get to breakfast. The location is not in a quaint spot, it's more of a commercial area, so it's not romantic--but it's perfect if you are just trying to be efficient, clean, comfortable, and get stuff done like a Colby College tour.

This was just what we needed for avoiding a snow storm after a concert. A lot of truckers stay here, so be aware they get up early and start bowling, I mean rolling but it sure sounded like bowling. We are going to get a room on second floor next time. I don't think there is an elevator - so just be aware of that. There was also the sound of a tiny dog Mintzy who barked when we walked by every time, poor thing. So again, the second floor would help keep Mintzy quiet for those in adjacent rooms. Staff super nice.

Excellent accommodations at a reasonable price. Friendly and helpful staff. Having the Governor's restaurant next door is very handy plus the food is good. Bakery items are awesome. Also handy location to grocery store and more.
