I stayed at this"fine" establishment and found it substantially lacking. The room was cheaply decorated and furnished (nothing like hanging decor with push tacks), The towels and sheets were mismatched and shabby and the advertised "jacuzzi" tub was too small to do anything other than Shower in.
The view (of the garbage bins out back) was pathetic. The derelict house across the street did nothing to contribute to the "ambiance" - which I was paying an awful lot of money for! The next door "neighbors" consisted of a run down apartment dwelling blasting heavy metal. The lawns/exterior were unkempt and run down.
There were NO amenities Whatsoever (not even so much as a soda machine) so I advise you to bring your own drinks in case of thirst in the middle of the night.
The food - hmmm well people make fun of British cuisine for a reason. Not much was on offer and what there was - was just standard hotel fare -
The "staff" I found lacking in the Customer service department however, if people enjoy smarmy then you are at the right place. Nothing like being questioned as to what time you will be going to bed - because you will be keeping the management up! (I thought that was YOUR job?)
Personally I think the website/advertisement of this inn are deceitful and misleading. Even the rates advertised online were a sham! We paid over $150 to stay in what I would have classed a 2 star (if that) establishment in a small town which rolled its sidewalks up at 8pm!
Having travelled extensively in Maine I can honestly tell you - give this one a pass - there are much nicer places to stay just a little bit up the road. Even establishments in Beautiful Greenville/Moosehead area don't charge what this place does and you get a lot more for your money.
