“Very comfortable, quiet, and convenient, for a good value”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

We stayed there on a one-day jaunt through Bangor, and the Country Inn gave us just what we needed --- a very comfortable quiet place that allowed us to get a good night's sleep without paying an arm and a leg for it.

Breakfast -- not a huge variety of kinds of food, but what was there was good and fresh. There were fresh cookies at the check-in, and the lobby was super-attractive, comfortable, and welcoming, with comfy sofas around a fireplace. (not necessary in July, of course!) The abundance of wood in the building design contributes to a very homey, warm feel. The receptionists were extremely courteous and helpful.

The room had a good air-conditioner -- a little bit noisy, as most hotel ac's are -- but very effective. The bed was comfortable, and the room layout was attractive and comfortable. We had a good night's sleep after a long day of driving, and were very glad that we had chosen the Country Inn.

My wife and I stayed at the Country Inn for two nights and liked it so well that we came back the following week for one night then, after touring Maine for six days, came back for a final night before flying home. We had a rented car, so the fact that there is no shuttle service to the airport was no problem. But if, for some reason, ou do not rent a car, it is only 10-15 minutes from the airport and a taxi would not be that expensive. The inn itself was delightful in every way. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were large, exceptionally clean, and very comfortable. The only problem is that in some rooms there are not unused electrical outlets very close to the desk, in case you need to plug in your computer. We easily solved the problem, however, just by temporarily unplugging a light. The breakfast choices were excellent -- juices, cold cereal, fruit, waffles, eggs, sausage, toast, pastries, etc. We compared prices with similar hotels and inns, and found that this one was more reasonable that any comparable ones. It is also convenient to shopping and a few good restaurants. We would certainly stay there again. Just one note if you are using a Garmin GPS to get there -- it will mislead you by about a half-block from the inn. But it is not hard to correct yourself from there.

My sisters and I stayed here while doing a bit of shopping in Bangor. It has clean rooms, quiet location, nice porches with chairs, good breakfast and centrally located for shopping. Staff are great and very helpful.

Only two complaints: the free WiFi didn't work very well, even on the computer in the lobby that guests could use for free. And, we had a cot for a third person in our party. Even though we were told the cots were brand new - OMG, it wasn't fit to sleep on. Too bad they didn't have rooms with 2 queen beds.

Room Tip: Book through Expedia for good rates.

Bangor was a transit point at the beginning and end of a trip into Canada, and we stayed here one night on each end. Our experience was similar both times--easy access to and from the airport, and a comfortable room. Especially appreciated was the fact that the rooms were big enough that two couples traveling together could gather in one for conversation and games in the evening without feeling cramped. Wireless internet in the room was trouble-free, and if you don't have a computer with you there is one available in the lobby. Chairs out on the front porch make for a very nice reading/conversation spot in good weather. The breakfast is not spectacular, but it is varied enough to get the day off to a good start. If you are looking for a decent room at a reasonable price, this would be a good choice. It is not a fancy hotel by any means, but for a trouble-free stay it certainly rates a solid "very good" in my book.

My sister, mother and I went down to do a little shopping. We usually stay at the Fairfield in but it was booked. The room we had was clean and comfortable. The staff was great. Breakfast area was clean and the food was good. Good cookies as well. We will definitely stay here the next time we go on a shopping trip.

We stayed at the Inn on our return trip to Bangor and we were not disappointed. Same comfortable feeling with clean rooms and excellent breakfast.
