“Best Kept Secret in Camden”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

we stayed at this hotel for the Camden Bowl, WOW what a great place, Dave the owner and Jackie and Ralph made our stay with them the BEST. We are already booked for next year, and think we are going to stay with them sometime this summer. Again this by far is one of the greatest places to stay in Camden, you feel like you are home.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 209 on the second floor for 119.00 a night.

The staff is very friendly and the location is lovely. The hotel is conveniently located and very family oriented. Excellent breakfast -- good selection of items. The pool area needs some work and the hottub was not only warm.

Room Tip: A room in the front overlooks the river that flows through town and the footbridge.

Dear Skoogs4,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and we appreciate your comments about our friendly staff, our breakfast and our great downtown location. Camden is a great destination for families year round and we strive to create a relaxing and memorable stay for our guest.

We are lucky to be the only intown hotel with our own pool and hot tub. I have passed along your comments about the pool and hot tub and we will be having the hot tub serviced. Thank you for sharing this problem with us and we hope it will be warmer in the future. The pool is scheduled for refurbishing this winter so we hope you will return and give it a try again.

We look forward to seeing you and your family return to Camden Riverhouse Hotel.. Have a happy and safe 2014.

Best,
Ryan Reynolds

Dear Scrodfish,

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and plan on returning to our hotel and Midcoast Maine. Our staff strives to make our guests feel at home and I will pass along your kind words. As you noted, our location can not be beat. We are lucky to be in downtown Camden but one block off the main street/Route 1. This location allows our guest the quiet solitude Maine is known for yet all Camden's restaurants, stores, and the harbor are a short walk.

Christmas by the Sea is a great community event and many of our guests return year after year.
We look forward to your return in 2014.

Best Wishes,
Ryan Reynolds

We have had such a great, home like stay at Camden Riverhouse over the last 6 years. We joined a group of families who make this a tradition. It was easy to make it a family tradition as well. Ralph and Dave have made us feel at home and we appreciate it! We look forward to next year!

We enjoyed our stay the location was right Dow town so we were able to walk to all the fun. The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The boys enjoyed the cookies candy and hot chocolate at the front desk.

Room Tip: For a few extra dollars we opt for the bigger room. Glad we did .

Dear Mark K,

Christmas by the Sea is a fun time. We have many repeat guests and we enjoy visiting with them and also welcoming new guests. We are thrilled your family enjoyed the cookies and hot chocolate at the front desk and indeed we are very lucky to be located in downtown with our own parking lot. All the great shops and restaurants are right at our door. We hope your boys were able to enjoy our indoor pool and hot tub inbetween the fireworks and the parade.

We hope you will stay with us when you are in Camden or mid-coast Maine.

Best,

Perfect location for downtown Camden! Incredibly helpful and friendly staff who went out of their way to help, even making waffles for us at the great continental breakfast. Would highly recommend the Camden Riverhouse and will definitely stay here again.
