AN OLDIE BUT A GOODIE
The Best Western White House Inn is an older hotel, but unlike some properties that simply deteriorate with age, this hotel has aged gracefully. In fact, it uses its longevity to create a historic motif with pictures of all the presidents gracing one of the lower hallways. Beyond that, the building and rooms have been well maintained and updated (i.e. a Keurig Coffee maker in the room). The hotel is in a good if somewhat remote location, close to the airport, town and I-95, but there were no restaurants or stores close to the hotel. I try to avoid hotels close to interstate highways due to noise, and I was a little concerned because our room was at the end of the hotel closest to the road. It turned out not to be a problem, however, as the white noise of the air conditioner and my always available ear plugs masked any road noise that made it into the room. The hotel has a self- service laundry accessible by key, but its use was limited to one person at a time- not a bad idea from a security standpoint, but certainly a limiting factor for availability. There was a bar which was welcome after a long day on the road, but it was rather dungeon-like on the basement level of the hotel. The morning breakfast featured the usual hotel buffet fare, but plates, utensils and several food items ran out during the morning rush hour. All in all, our one night stay was pleasant with my only complaint being the rather high price, which, unfortunately, seems to be a fact of life for Maine hotels during the summer.

Room Tip: If road noise is a concern, request a room away from the nearby interstate.

Dear Guest,

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We work hard to maintain the hotel and are always doing upgrades and remodels. The Keurig coffeemakers are a new addition for us and seem to be well received by our guests. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our presidential theme. We hope to see you next time you are in our area.

While the staff was exceptionally nice and helpful this is an older location with the majority of the rooms available to smokers and pets. If that is your thing you are in! If not you will a little disappointed!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for letting us know that you found our staff to be exceptionally nice and helpful. They are always happy to hear comments like that from our guests. We actually only have 5 smoking rooms in the hotel and as of January 1, 2014, we will be 100% smoke free. We are a pet friendly hotel but have many specifically designated NON pet rooms and specifically designated pet rooms. Either choice is available to be requested by guests based on the guest's needs.

We stayed one night after attending a wedding reception at the Morgan Hill Event Center...very convenient location for that. The room had 2 Queen beds, a Keurig, small refrigerator and small microwave. It was good sized, clean and comfortable. I liked that the sink/mirror/hair dryer were separate from the toilet/shower which made getting ready for 2 people quicker/easier. Check-in was smooth and the staff were very pleasant. WiFi was free and worked well. We did not eat the breakfast provided as we had arranged to meet others at Dysart's truck stop next door (very good homestyle cooking-large portions!!). There is also a store in the truck stop to buy snacks, drinks and other misc items. We heard very little outside noise which was surprising given the hotels location near the highway and truck stop. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Dear Guest,

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The separate bathroom and sink is quite convenient when multiple people are getting ready for something such as a wedding. I am sorry to hear that you missed our breakfast but I do agree Dysart's is a great breakfast place with huge portions. I hope that we will see you again in the future if you are back in our area.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on our way to NH. This is an older hotel with smaller rooms but the room was very clean and the ramp to the I95 is 30 seconds away...perfect for a quick, early start the next morning. There was a wide selection at breakfast and the breakfast staff was very friendly.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our 13 day trip into Canada. The hotel and our rooms were very nice. It is an older hotel, but well maintained.The front desk personnel are very cordial. The breakfast was the standard breakfast fare. My rating is downgraded from a 5 star due to the hotels location. The only business (restaurant/shopping) in the area is Dysart's Truck Stop.
