“Older hotel, but has character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2007

You can tell that this hotel has seen alot of years, but it has character. To open the door to the room, they do not use cards. They actually still use keys. I haven't seen that in ages.

The room could use a renovation, but still clean and comfortable. The television also played videotapes that you could get at the front desk, which would be great for kids.

In response to the earlier review about the smoking problem, they now have a room near the lobby for smokers to go to. I would assume that would fix the problem with smoke getting into neighboring rooms.

The hotel was alittle pricey, but close to the Bangor airport. I would stay here again if in the area.

  • Liked — Comfortable room
  • Disliked — Alittle pricey for the age of the hotel.
  • Stayed August 2007, traveled as a couple

We woke up in the middle of the night to the smell
of smoke from the room next door. Complained to front desk and he said it happens. He could have cared less. This is not the greatest place to stay if you are a non smoker. The smoke comes in through your air conditioner in the middle and practially chokes you to death.

The location of this hotel is excellent, it gives easy access to Arcadia National Park and if you are a Stephen King fan is less than a 5 minute drive from his house. It overlooks a river so ask for a room that side of the hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast, whilst it was a do it yourself deal, was included in the room price and you could eat as much as you wanted. We had the penthouse suite overlooking the river with a jacuzzi for $123 a night which we thought was excellent value with free parking and breakfast. The staff even gave us information on things we may like do do whilst in America. Whilst there is no onsite restaurant there are many local restaurants around which are incredibly cheap and good value.
