The Fireside is one of my favorite places to stay. My daughter goes to school nearby and after dropping her off, I spend the night there before heading back south. The hotel is clean, the people are nice, the location is convenient, the rooms are comfortable, and the price is right. This time I had a room with a fireplace....

Thank you for staying with us as you visit your daughter in school. I'm glad that you will miss your visits after she graduates. Perhaps you can convince her to change majors, or to double major, keeping her in college for more years? Seriously, thanks for writing. We will be your respite in Maine when you need us.

Traveling for my job has taken me to all corners of New England and beyond. The Waterville Fireside is among the best. So refreshing to see a older facility so well maintained. The staff is obviously on their game.

I had a conference to go to in Bangor but chose to stay here at my favorite place and drive the extra 50 minutes the next day. Have been staying here for years. If there is ever a problem they are always there to rectify it! Excellent overall!

The Fireside Inn and Suites in Waterville, ME, is a medium sized older hotel that has failed to make the updates and improvements that today's travelers expect. The carpeting was gaudy, worn, and out-of-fashion, as was the wall paper. The woodwork was scarred and nicked. The staff at the "front desk" if you can call it that were not very...

Thank you for your review, and thank you for mentioning our pet-friendly rooms. We have just one with the wood floors right now, but we are planning on expanding that in the future.
