Hotel? Maine doesn't really do hotels. If you just mean "lodging place", then you can find a great variety of B&Bs in Rockland itself and lots more B&Bs and motels just up the road in Camden, a lovely place to visit in any case.

If you haven't seen it yet, here is what I suppose is the official web site:

There's a fairly new hotel in Rockland:

If you are going to the Lobster Festival you better book WAY in advance. I grew up there, and it will be PACKED (don't ask me why).

I recommend staying at the Strawberry Hill Motor Inn in Rockport. It is great and affordable.

However, all hotels near there will jack up their prices for the festival.

You can try Augusta if you want to be a little bit farther away to avoid the costs. However, that is a 45 minute drive (in good traffic) to Rockland. You could also try Belfast which is 30-40 minutes in good traffic.
