“Great breakfast and charming Innkeepers”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We have stayed here many times and have always had a lovely experience. Jackie and Lew are so very accommodating and always have a joke or a story to tell. The breakfast that they serve certainly gives a person a great start on the day.

Stayed there last night. We travel a lot and found the Freeport Village Inn just average. Someone else posted it is like a Motel 6. That is close as far as decor is concerned, but it was way cleaner than any Motel 6. We found it quiet and close to the shopping areas of Freeport. Many reviewers raved about the made to order breakfast. I would not say that was the case. The full pot of self-serve coffee was completely cold and undrinkable. Finally a pot of hot coffee arrived. Lou approached our table and said "I'm listening." This is how our breakfast order was taken. To another diner he said "what do you want?" No warm greeting. No explanation of what was available. Perhaps Lou and Jackie were just having a bad day, because the experience we had and I suspect of the other guests today at breakfast was not as others have described. That being said, I asked for eggs over medium and got scrambled eggs instead. So much for the made to order breakfast. I was late in booking a room for this very busy fall "leaf peeper" weekend, and this was the last room available in the area. I would not intentionally choose the Village Inn again.

My first impression of the inn was that the hallways and rooms were quite dated, most notably probably is the brown and yellow linoleum bathroom floors. But that being said the rooms actually did seem to be very well cleaned. The location is great, less than 5 minute walk to downtown Freeport stores and restaurants. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was very nice, prepared and served by a chef with a good sense of humor. I was disappointed with the town of Freeport itself, there is really no reason to go there unless you like to shop. Restaurant options are very limited, and nightlife is nonexistent.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Village Inn as we were attending a family wedding Labor Day weekend. The room was cozy and incredibly clean and the morning breakfast was a treat! Jackie and Lou are great hosts and Lou makes great coffee - very important to me in the AM! Thanks so much.

We stayed here last week on a shopping trip to Freeport. We found our room to be very comfortable and quiet. It was in walking distance to shopping and restaurants. TV had Comcast cable which allowed us to watch the Red Sox. I got 4G service on my phone as well. Blueberry pancakes for breakfast were great served with bacon. Lou took time to chat with you and make you feel welcome. We stayed here last year and were glad we returned this year.

The Inn is convenient to walking downtown and has off street parking. We stayed in one of the "motel units". It was a basic room but clean and met our needs. The cooked to order breakfast was yummy! I would stay here again without hesitation.

We have been staying with Lou and Jackie for over 20 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else. They are located on the Main Street within walking distance to LL Bean and the other stores and restaurants. The rooms are basic and clean and Lou makes the best breakfast you could want every morning. My husband only eats blueberry pancakes when we are there. Over the years we have brought my mother, our daughter, son-in-law and four year old grandson to enjoy Maine with us.
This is truly a favorite place for us and we look forward to staying there while in Freeport.
