“Lovely hotel, great location in a beautiful town”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Located in the middle of town with restaurants and shops all around, this is a great location for exploring beautiful Camden.

I was given a ground floor suite, tucked around the corner from reception. It had a balcony overhanging the river, separate living room with fireplace and kitchenette, large en-suite and cozy bedroom.

The staff were lovely and allowed me to park near my room to unload, before directing me to the parking station (free for hotel guests). Everything was in walking distance so I didn't need my car.

My room felt more like a really luxurious apartment. I felt self-contained and could have hibernated here quite happily!

My favourite thing was the walk-in high-tech shower, with multiple jets...sigh. There was also a separate bathtub with jacuzzi jets, perfect for soaking in. The towels were soft and the toiletries okay.

The bed was way too soft for me and after two nights my spine was creaking, but the pillows were very good.

Breakfast was included with the room and there was a good selection to start the day. Having a Keurig machine in the room was a bonus.

I highly recommend this hotel.

Dear ThePackedBag,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such a lovely review of Lord Camden Inn! We greatly appreciate the highlights of your stay that you shared to include the well appointed room and its amenities, breakfast, and the staff.

Our mattresses comments are usually are on high remark by our guests, but we do understand that every traveler sleeps differently and apologize that our mattresses were not quite a match to your spine. During your next stay I would love to look into ways to stiffen this for you maybe by way of a bed board.

I’m happy you were able to utilize the soaking Jacuzzi bath tub as this is a recently added amenity to our 3 main floor suites and feel these really set a great spa-like tone along with our body jet rain showers.

We look forward to being of service during your next stay in Camden!

Sincerely,
Erick Anderson
General Manager

We stayed in a two queen bed fireplace suite.

The positives: hotel is in middle of town and easy to walk everywhere. Room and bathroom clean. Front desk staff very helpful. Keurig in room for easy morning coffee. Free wifi.

The negatives: this place is not soundproof. I could here the man in the next room sneeze, blow his nose, and pop the top of a can. People overhead were very loud and it sounded like kids running back and forth. Breakfast buffet is average. Beds are very soft, which for us we find uncomfortable.

Dear SCheng46855,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of Lord Camden Inn here on TripAdvisor! I am sorry your experience was not flawless and that you experienced sound disturbances. As our beds receive many high marks we understand each traveler may sleep differently and apologize for our softer beds. I would love to learn more about your average breakfast experience as our breakfast is specifically sourced locally to include egg farmers, maple syrup, coffee, granola, bagel and our pastries are made in house by our breakfast team each morning. With this concentration and effort we feel we provide above average offerings in this area.

Thank you for your comments regarding our helpful staff, Keurig and our complimentary wifi! We greatly appreciate your review as we take all forms of feedback and use them as a tool towards positive growth. Please let us know if we may be of service in the future as we look forward to welcoming you back!

Sincerely,
Erick Anderson

My wife and I spent two days in Camden and stayed at the Inn. It was a good choice because it is so well located. Our room had a balcony that faced the water and I would suggest the same accommodation if you are considering staying there. The breakfast, which is included, is more than adequate. The fact that the Inn also has parking was another plus.

Dear TwoOldFogies,

We are so appreciative of you taking the time to provide a review here on TripAdvisor! Thank you for mentioning our premier downtown location and water views! We take great pride in providing a fresh start to each guests stay therefore we locally source our breakfast ingredients whenever possible so our guests know there are healthy and filling options to enjoy! Being a downtown hotel we know parking is difficult therefore provide parking, although remote, complimentary to all guests of Lord Camden Inn.

I look forward to welcoming you back to Lord Camden Inn during your next visit!

Our first time to Camden and I chose Lord Camden Inn because it was pet friendly. Not expecting too much we were more than pleased and highly recommend this hotel. Everything was perfect from making our reservation, to check in/check out, to the cleanliness of the rooms to the amazing complimentary breakfast. It was wonderful being downtown and we did not have to use our car to go anyplace during our stay. We chose a room with the harbor view and kept commenting how nice it was to sit on our balcony and see the downtown and Camden Harbor. Love the special touches like glassware instead of paper or plastic in our room (very earth friendly), the thick white bath towels, and the quality bed linens. We will absolutely return and definitely recommend the Lord Camden Inn to our friends. As a side note.. the people of Camden are very friendly, the shops carry wonderful goods. We really enjoyed our vacation in Camden.

Room Tip: the fourth floor rooms with the harbor view are the best !!

This was an overnight stop on our way to Bar Harbor. I really expected it to front on the harbor, but it's a block back, facing the little shop-lined main street. Our 2-queen-bedded room was prettily decorated and the balcony was nice, as was the bathroom. All clean and shiny. However, nowhere to put the luggage rack except between bed & wall. The bedding was extremely heavy - I pitied the maids - and very heavy on my feet, but the pillows were perfect - 3 of different softnesses, so one was Just Right. The breakfast was in a windowless room but had lots of good choices.

We are two very active older ladies, but getting our suitcases (each had only one) up the back steps from where the cars unload was pretty strenuous in the heat, and no one to help. On our checkout, one nice staff member came to help us down with them.

Cookies? I see that some reviewers mentioned chocolate chip cookies! We didn't know about them! I wish someone had mentioned them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony.

Dear Nibiru888,

Thank you for your recent stay with us at Lord Camden Inn and your review as you made your way north to Bar Harbor! Our premier location with harbor views is a sure winner to all travelers looking to experience the full effect of Camden. Thank you for commenting on our décor, cleanliness, and our pillows. We understand every traveler is different so offering an array of bedding we feel serves the best overall experience and are happy you were able to find comfort without the comforter. Luggage service is offered by all Guest Service Representatives and although I am happy we were able to assist at departure I do apologize for missing the mark upon your arrival. Each day our coffee bar is accompanied by a delicious daily treat to include freshly baked cookies, fudge, brownies, and tarts. This complimentary service starts at 2pm, is self served, and runs until empty. We are sorry you missed this landmark during your stay as each day the amount of treats are determined by the hotel occupancy as to capture the guest count.

Although we’re not located directly on the water our sister property Grand Harbor Inn is and we would be happy to assist you with any future reservations when you return to Camden! Thank you again for staying with us!

Sincerely,
Erick Anderson
