We booked this hotel on the spur of the moment after a last minute change in plans. It worked out nicely.
Our room was in good condition and was kept clean during our stay.
I will note that although it was called a 'suite' it was really just one big room - the small partitions separating the sitting area only stuck out about a foot so didn't make it feel like a separate space. However we knew this before we booked by looking at the hotel's photos, so I don't count it against them.
We had the hotel breakfast on 2 out of 4 mornings. As someone more used to British hotels, breakfast in the US is never quite the same, but this one was good by American standards. There was a pretty good choice with some hot items, a pancake making machine, fresh fruit and pastries etc.
We made a couple of visits to the pool, and had a nice relaxing time.
In terms of location, the hotel is a couple of miles outside of Freeport - you really need to drive anywhere you want to go. However it is directly across the road from Royal River Natural Foods and the Maine Distillery - we walked over there to visit them and get some supplies.
