“If only there was an ice machine....”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Spent a lovely spring weekend here. Relaxed in the rocking chairs on the porch, explored Brunswick and Bath, ate lots of seafood - perfect! The staff were friendly and most helpful. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We only ate breakfast at the inn, but it was very good. Bath and Body toiletries were provided in the bathroom. The only drawback was having to go down to the tavern to get ice.

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the region; both Brunswick and Bath have so many wonderful sights to see. Or if you prefer, just relaxing on the front porch is another great way to spend your time at the Inn. We should have been able to deliver ice to your room; I am sorry that you were informed that you needed to pick it up yourself. We do look forward to your next visit.

With Best Regards,

I discovered this hotel on Groupon but then decided to go directly to the website and discovered they had a room and 2 roundtrip Amtrak tickets from Boston combo, so this was a perfect option for a weekend getaway trip from Boston for those traveling without a car. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and spacious (stayed in the king suite) and the location was perfect to explore downtown Brunswick. The hotel was also a 3 minute walk to the Amtrak station. Ate dinner and breakfast in the Tavern and the food was perfect. I would stay here again!

Hi Brijica,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of the Inn! I am so happy to hear you took the train from Boston right to Brunswick and walked across the street to the Inn. The Amtrak Down-easter is new to our area so hearing about your wonderful experience is spectacular. I am also happy to hear about your experience in the Tavern for breakfast and dinner. We look forward to welcoming you back to our area and hope that you will return to explore the wonderful scenery and attractions that Brunswick has to offer year round.

Thanks!

Be warned, there is a cancellation fee--even if you cancel months in advance!!! That is pretty ridiculous.... that they take a deposit, then charge $30 to refund it when plans change months in advance.
First floor of hotel smells like fish---bad ventilation in kitchen. Skimpy on supplies--ONE bar of soap for two sinks for several days..... never refurbished although mushy and shrinking. Also, only 2 handtowels for three people. Sofabed in suite very uncomfortable. Poor lighting in living room...needs more lamps. Would rather stay at chain hotel where items like soap are re-supplied and NO cancellation fees and no deposits required. Should be room service at an Inn. Restaurant service VERY slow and pricy for entrees.
Also, if the Inn is crowed, you have to park on the street or in muddy lot across the street where employees park.
Best of Inn--location near school.

Room Tip: Suite was semi handicapped accessible, so shower was odd (had seat that could be put in tub. Toilet...

I am glad to hear that your decision to stay at The Inn was in part based on your research of our reviews. We replenish amenities daily as needed or whenever requested. We customarily provide 4 sets of towels in each of our rooms and have addressed this with our staff. We changed our cancellation policy just after opening. Although customary with small Inns, we felt that a cancellation fee was not necessary in our region. My apologies, that it was erroneously reported on the website where you made your reservation. It has since been updated appropriately, and I wish that you would visit us again to allow us the opportunity to provide you with the excellent service that is reflected in our reviews.

I look forward to your return.

Found this hotel through Groupon but would recommend even at full rate. Rooms were clean, big and comfortable Slept great in comfy bed and down comforter. Staff was friendly and good natured all around. Had breakfast at the tavern which was delicious and reasonably priced. Dinner menu looked good but we didn't have a chance to try it. Would try it next time though. All in all a wonderful retreat for any occasion.

Hi Lisa A,

Thanks so much for your wonderful review of our Inn. I am looking forward to showing this review to staff! I am also happy to see the remarks on the bedding as we use Cuddledown Comforters from Freeport which is only ten minutes south of us! Hopefully we will welcome you back for another getaway and we can have you try out dinner.

Regards,

My girlfriends and I stayed in one of their King Suites after my bridal shower. The room was very comfortable (the bed was SUPER comfortable) and there was plenty of room for five women and all of their things. They even brought in two air mattresses for us, and there was STILL a lot of room. We had a mini kitchenette area with a nice sized refrigerator. The room was clean and sofas were comfortable.

We were within walking distance of some great restaurants and pubs. The hotel is in a wonderful location. If you are coming to Brunswick to see a show at the Maine State Music Theater...the hotel is literally across the street, so it is the perfect place to stay.

I didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food. The front desk staff was helpful, but not particularly friendly when I had to go downstairs to ask for a roll of toilet paper at 6:00 a.m. For five women, we had only gotten a half-roll with no rolls to spare. That was a little disappointing. The other disappointment was that there was no fan in the bathroom.

My son is a student at Bowdoin and, until the Inn at Brunswick Station opened last year, I always stayed in Bath because the accommodations were superior. AT LAST, there is a good hotel that's also convenient to Bowdoin and downtown Brunswick. The service at the front desk is friendly and quite efficient. I needed to have some documents scanned and emailed, and it was done in less than 5 minutes. The rooms are appealing, clean, and comfortable. The lobby is a great place to relax and hang out. Don't think of staying anywhere else in Brunswick!
