I stayed at the Black Bear for one night Feb. 28. When I go to UMaine to visit my daughter, I typically stay in 2 star hotels in Bangor. Priceline had a deal on the Black Bear that put it in that price range, and I will seek it out in the future. The room was spacious,quiet, clean and comfortable, with a bed and a pull-out couch and a mini-fridge.
The exercise room could use a second piece of cardio equipment - there is only one treadmill and a weight station. Breakfast was basic, but carb heavy - waffles, bagels, breads and muffins and cereal.
There was a mix-up between Priceline and the hotel with my check-in and I was charged twice, but the staff was friendly and accommodating about getting the problem fixed quickly.
