“good clean hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

The room was basic with a mini fridge and microwave. A good Continental breakfast in a bright, clean breakfast room overlooking the pool. The pool was good sized and well maintained. We saw them cleaning it each day. Good parking and a great, friendly staff. Great maid service. The downsides: a 2 year old "local events' brochure in the room, tub drain green and corroded, no flat screen tv. Security was odd: the hallways were dim, stairways dark, elevator noisy and there was just a chain lock for the door. If you are worried about a secure room look elsewhere. Otherwise, a nice stay at a budget price.

Room Tip: I'd bring a flashlight and a 2nd travelers door alarm

Thank you for the feedback concerning your recent stay with us. I will be sure to pass on your kind words about our staff and their service to them at our next meeting.

I did want to clarify that all of our guest room doors have a total of three locks on them; one in the electronic handle itself, a deadbolt and a chain. The hotel also utilizes 24hr. front desk staff, security cameras and outside security services as needed. The hotel completed lighting upgrades to the exterior of the hotel, lobby and continental breakfast room. We are still looking into options available for our hallways and stairwells.

Thank you for your patronage and I hope that we can be of service to you in the future the next time you are in Bangor, ME.

Our second stay at the Econolodge which offers good value for money at the budget end of the market especially with the complimentary Wi-Fi, coffee in the lobby, breakfast and airport transfer. Some simple changes could improve its eco performance while still keeping in line with its low-cost proposition.

Public Transport:
- No information in the room or website about accessing the local public transportation network
- Missed opportunity to extend the airport transfer service to also include the local bus terminal which is just across the road from the airport

Zero Waste:
+ Recycling bin in the room but no composting bins
- Was not provided the option to receive bill via email rather than getting another piece of paper to throw away
- TONS of disposable items at the breakfast - plates, cups, bowls, cutlery. With a little bit or organisation and effort all this waste could be a thing of the past and would make the breakfast much more pleasant
- No recycling or composting bins apparent at breakfast
- Disposable plastic toiletries containers rather than the bulk dispensers you find in many eco-conscious Nordic hotels
- Disposable cups in room for water and coffee covered in unnecessary excess plastic wrapping

Energy:
+ Information in room about reusing towels
- Shower, toilet and faucet do not appear to be low flow
- Windows do not appear to be well insulated given the hotel's location in Maine
- No room-key operated electricity controls like in most European hotels
- No sensors to turn-off or dim lights in common hallways when not needed
- No apparent on-site generation through solar or thermal hot water


Recycled and Local Products:
+ What looked like recycled paper products in the room
- Missed opportunity of using more local products at breakfast (eg. local jams and spreads rather than generic single use containers) which would make breakfast more pleasant

Environmental Information:
- No information in room or on website regarding environmental, initiatives, performance / CO2 emissions and targets
- Not listed in Tripadvisor's Green Leaders (though the Econolodge website indicates that the hotel participates in green initiatives)

CO2 Offset
- No option to offset CO2 emissions from stay

Stayed here for one night before and early morning departing flight. Staff was great at the front desk. Room was very good and at a great rate. Left before breakfast so cannot comment on it. Small room but adequate for what we needed. A/C was tempermental and somewhat noisy.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 3rd floor, very quiet.

Stayed here one night and found it very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The room was a bit cramped, as was the bathroom, but it wasn't a major issue. The breakfast was adequate, but some fresh fruit would have been nice. We'd stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Elevator a bit noisy, so try to get a room away from it.

We were in Bangor for a one night stop over on a two week trip and didn't have a reservation but luckily we found a room here. Inexpensive and your typical budget motel. Good location. They had a decent breakfast in the morning. Nothing fancy but the price was right.

They sent a taxi to pick me up from the airport. I lost my cellphone charger and they were extremely helpful and gave me a replacement and I had to insist to give them a small tip for their troubles. The staff was helpful, nice and genuinely committed to giving me a wonderful stay. Yes the room is very small and the breakfast is not a huge variety, but if it's a stop-over, you can't ask for a better situation at a low price.

Wow, what fantastic value for money. Clean, comfy rooms with everything you need; lovely clean and nice pool & area; breakfast fine. We stayed for one night whilst exploring Maine. Maine's a beautiful state - we loved Arcadia National Park & Thunder Hole; Stephen King's house & bat gates amusing to see; the 'Lobster Pounds' served delicious food, and we basically dined on fresh lobster for our stay. Will definitely return to this lovely area and would be very happy to stay at this lodge again. Wonderful value for money, strongly recommend. Very friendly staff too. :-))
