We had booked at the Black Bear Inn because there were no rooms available in Bangor. However, the Black Bear Inn is really conveniently located, just off the freeway exit near Old Town, and only a few minutes from Bangor. The first thing I did when I came into the room was take pictures of the bedspreads--really great quilts featuring a log cabin, woods, and (what else?) a black bear. There was even a bear stuffed toy which you could purchase with proceeds going to cancer. The room was comfortable and very clean. Staff were totally friendly and accommodating. We arrived on a Saturday and were told there would be a wine and cheese hour which we took in, and met some of the other guests. The continental breakfast was fine, very casual, and you could take a tray back to your room. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and especially families. There is a statue of a black bear and a cub outside the hotel and there always seemed to be kids climbing on it!
