“Well worth the stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Like the saying goes; "If you come to Maine not looking for much, you will find a lot". Although this hotel is older, it holds much value inside. The staff is exceptionally friendly. The rooms are clean, up to date and comfortable. They have an indoor pool and a real fitness center. Their Italian restaurant features excellent fare and their lounge is well stocked.

I can go to a newer fancy hotel anywhere and get a bottle of water and a snack and pay considerately more for "points", or I can stay here and get a great value and feel at home. When I come to Presque Isle, this is my place!

We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice place to stay that had a good restaurant off of the lobby, and had good service overall at a reasonable price. Access to the health club downstairs, included with the room, makes cardio machines, weight machines and free weights available, plus a pool of decent length.

I spend probably 30-40 nights a year in motels, hotels and lodges between work and leisure travel in the Northeast and Canada. I've stayed in some really nice places, and some really lousy places. Whenever I'm in Presque Isle though, this is the place to stay.
Yeah, some of it is a bit tired, but the rooms are very spacious, the beds are comfortable, the Wi-Fi never fails, and the staff is great. The rooms are unfailingly clean, and nicely done up every day when you're there for a while. Excellent western views from the rooms on that side.
The restaurant is fine. I've haven't been to the bar recently, but it used to be quite a place when I was younger and more foolish. Now I appreciate that it is nicely separated from the rooms, so unless you're interested you'd never know it was there.
Plus they just don't make 'em like this any more. I enjoy a nice new Hampton Inn as much as the next traveler, but every once in a while it's nice to stay at a funky traditional hotel. This place is well worth a try.

After driving 7 hours, looking for a room at 11:00 PM is not easy. Walked in and was nicely greeted and asked for a room for a trip suddenly taken. No problem, given corporate discount per work based travel and had a nice clean room and very clean bathroom. Noisy air conditioner but that didn't make much difference after long travel. Continental breakfast was ok. Choose not to dine light. For a quick crash it was better than one can ask for.

Room Tip: I had a no smoking room

What a HORRIBLE hotel! It's so old and so dirty I almost didn't stay. The only reason I did is because I was so tired I didn't want to lug everything back out to my car to go to another hotel.

The first thing I heard on check-in was someone over the radio calling for maintenance to go fix an overflowing toilet in one of the rooms. That should have been my warning sign to leave. The toilet in my room didn't overflow but it BARELY flushed and it randomly kicked in and filled with water every 10-20 minutes all day and all night! And it was LOUD! It woke me up 3 or 4 times until I finally got out of bed and went and shut the water off.

The walls are paper thin! I heard everything my neighbors were saying and doing.

The pool is disgusting! They have a change room and sauna, but the sauna doesn't work and it smells like urine so even if it did work you wouldn't catch me going into it!

I will NEVER stay in this hotel again! For what they're charging you would think they could put some money towards maintenance and repairs! Even the outside of the hotel looks run down and junky!

I believe I will try the Hampton Inn Presque Isle if I'm in Presque isle again. the rooms were ok, no elevator, lots of stairs, broken shower head.. Nothing major. No bugs or anything extreme. Front desk clerks were not helpful at all, very rude actually.. not worth the $110 we paid for the night. Convenient location though, near restaurants and shopping.

The hotel is okay for the price,the rooms are a bit dated and worn. Cleanliness is average.The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. The only thing I found annoying is the analog, tube tv's .
