Down Easter Inn
Ranked #3 of 3 Damariscotta B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Stayed here for a wedding in Bristol only because it was listed on the couple's site as hotels in the area. Should have done my homework. From first glance, the place is run down. Paint is worn, grounds unkempt. Entering the office area was like walking into grandma's house. In fact, I think it's a living room. Tacky decor, unprofessional staff, and mild mothball smell.

Then the room. Oh, man, the room. More tacky hell. Horrible floral wallpaper, cornflower blue carpet, silk flowers, dated dark wood furniture and oh that wonderful mothball smell again. No AC, but there was this horrid loud "ceiling fan" that was like an oscillating fan bolted to the ceiling. To it's credit, nothing was dirty, just old and depressing. I've stayed in motels better than this.

But a free breakfast! Oh, the horrible, depressing breakfast. Dead silent little dining room with a few tables of people minding their own. Breakfast consisted of store-bought pastries and terrible coffee. And more silk flowers!

All in all, a miserable little place that would be fine for $50 a night. But at more than double that, it leaves a lot to be desired.

No TV! No phone! Nothing within walking distance...The Inn is dirty, the shower in our room was very small and the place is run down. No restaurant, vending machine...but they have a water pump.
