If you are planning an event that plays music, the guest rooms will complain and staff will ask you to be quiet. Proms, weddings or events that need music in the evening will be shut down. Beware. This happened for the US Navy Ball and a recent Prom event.

Hi InspGadget,

I am so sorry to hear about your displeasure with the Robinson Room. We at the Inn try to produce a great experience for all of our guests and function attendees including overnight guests. We do have some challenges in the noise level of music when it gets later in the evening as do most hotels or Inns. We have had many successful events in the Robinson Room that involved live entertainment without any issue. I would welcome any additional feedback by contacting me at the Inn so I can further discuss this with staff and use this as a training opportunity to be able to better assist our guests and attendees of the Robinson Room. I have listed my contact information below and look forward to speaking with you.

We travelled to Brunswick after purchasing a Travelzoo coupon. The Inn is clean, spacious and modern. The staff was friendly, the bed was super-comfy and the room was meticulously clean. Our voucher came with breakfast, and the breakfast was great!

This newly renovated inn steps away from Bowdoin College is a one's best option when visiting the Brunswick area. The service was outstanding, and the value for money was superb! My personal highlight had to be the inn's homemade whoopie pies! It's a great new addition to town.

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,

Rick Martin

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.
