Stayed here for a convention and found this hotel very comfortable and quiet. There is a Continental breakfast served in the lobby,plus there is a good restaurant attached to the hotel. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. It's also a good place to stay if you have chi, judging from the amount of families I saw staying here.

We stayed one night at the Fireside Inn on our way home from New Brunswick. It was a very nice little hotel, beds were comfortable, breakfast was plentiful, staff was super friendly and best of all a nice big grassy area where I was able to throw a frisbee for our dog who had been in the car for far...

Very clean & nice touches from homemade chocolate moon pies at check in to micro wave popcorn in your room. Property is older, could use some sprucing up in the halls & stairwells & not fancy but clean. Big outdoor pool & hot tub. Attached restaurant serves good home made food & awesome huge delicious desserts.

Thank you for your review. You're right. We're older, but as you saw, we maintain spotlessly clean rooms where everything works. And, we try to provide the little extras that the franchises didn't think of, like a USB charging station on the nightstand, whoopie pies upon check in, and microwave popcorn in the rooms to help you to enjoy your...

My husband and I made our annual trip north and stopped for the night at the Fireside. Our stay was as good as it always is.

I was traveling to Arcadia Maine and it got too late at night so we stopped to check their pricing. The lady at the front desk, Nancy, was very empathetic to do the traveling we did and the late hour, and provided as a manager special pricing. That's paid about $40 or so off the regular pricing. The accommodations were... 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
