“New Facility is very nice”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Needing a place to stay for the night, we made reservations while on the road using the mobile TripAdvisor app. My wife (the passenger) just ended up calling and making reservations instead of trying to make online reservations; the varying connections on the road make this frustrating.

The facility appears new. It is very spacious. Our room contained the best best of our week-long stay: not too soft, not too hard, but just right. The room also had Keurig brewing which was a nice touch.

One thing that struck me was the large closet. I dont recall a BW with such a large closet. The bathroom too was very large. Although the bathroom was large, perhaps 12x8, the shower was a small 3x3 and didnt have any place to put the toiletries. I thought that odd. The ironing board was on the wall in the bathroom but there didnt appear to be an outlet to use it in there without getting in the way of the door. I would put it in the closet. These are really just oddities and not serious conditions.

The TV setup is confusing which is noteworthy. We didnt find out until we left that next morning as the front desk that there were supposed to be two remotes in the room; one handled the HD channels and the other handled the generic stations. The instructions provided do not show what the remote to use is supposed to look like and since we didnt know there was a second remote we went to be confused <grin>. Aside from that, this is a very nice facility.

The breakfast was continental-plus variety. It contained eggs, or at least an empty pan with egg remains and some sausages. There were only a handful of people in the very nice serving area so we figured since it was 10/15, the end of the season, that there were not enough guests to make more food up.

The front desk was quite helpful in answering our questions and directing us to eating places for supper the night before.

Thank You for your review! We take great pride in knowing that our hotel is in fact larger than the rest of the industry, which gives you the guest more room to move around. The beds were all replaced as well with our full rennovation, and have gotten quite a few comments such as yours on their comfort.

Thank You!

Travelled to Maine from NS, Canada from Oct 5-8th. Wasn't sure what to expect as earlier posts were a bit mixed but we were very impressed. Room was modernly updated and very clean.
Great location as we were visiting Kittery and Freeport.

We stayed here as a family the past weekend and we were very pleasantly satisfied. VERY clean. We were a family of 6 with 2 children.
The only complaint was they were unable to keep up with hot breakfast. Ran out of Eggs, and sausage. And when asked about it, the lady was rude and went on to saying she was understaffed that day and was working on it. She just seemed frustrated and couldn't be bothered. Not at all pleasant!!
Very close to the hotel is a dunkin donuts and starbucks. A total bonus for us!!!

But besides this... I'd rank this hotel over all great!! Just expect eggs/sausage to be empty.

Great price, very clean, good selection on breakfast. Would stay there again for sure!!!!

Thank You for your recent review and I am glad to hear your stay was great. I am sorry you did not get to enjoy our new hot breakfast with sausage and eggs and hot waffles, but guests looking for options other than our breakfast will find comfort knowing there are chain restaurants right down the street that guests can enjoy as well. I hope next time you are in the Brunswick Maine area you decide to come back for a stay!

Thank You!

Stayed here in July. The hotel is under renovation, and a little scary looking on the outside. The lobby and many of the rooms have been remodeled, and were nice. The staff were super friendly. Good breakfast with waffles. Nice pool. Great price. Would definitely stay there again.

Newly remodeled, convenient location and staff with helpful hints about the area made the experience very nice. The easy access to the Portland airport and good price would most definately make us go back again.
