“A straight forward stop off with the kids”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We loved the position of the hotel and took a walk down the lawn to the water's edge in the evening to watch the sun go down. A great feeling of space with room for the car near our rooms. The balcony overlooking the water was special and we didn't miss the morning mist on the water. Spacious rooms with adequate bathroom and a great pool to relax in. We and our kids loved breakfast. A no fuss meal with plenty of choice and a beautiful view to enjoy it with. All in all a great place to stay and we would come back without a doubt.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the water.

This place was great. Was in Camden scouting out rentals for a summer cottage. Room was clean, spacious and had everything you need for a pleasant stay. View was great, even on a dreary damp day. Was welcomed like an old friend. Really felt like I was staying with friends rather than a motel. I can only imagine how wonderful this place would be on a sunny summer day. Already planning another weekend trip with my husband in the near future. The location could not be better being between Rockland/Rockport and Camden. Would give it 6 stars if allowed.

It was the perfect place to be stuck in a snow storm. Very spacious, clean, nice furnishings (loved the quilted bedspreads - soft to the touch). The view was excellent and it was remarkably quiet even though it is located on Highway 1. The beds were very comfortable too. Relaxed and read a good book while watching the wind blow and the waves crash into shore. Not cold and commercial - a comfortable "family" feel. Off season price was exceptional for excellent quality. Highly recommend.

Great room with a beautiful view, It had two queen beds when I would have prefered just one but it was ok. Loved the Kuerig coffee maker in the room complete with coffee,they provided two reg and two decaf who needs decaf though? Bed was very comfy and room clean and tidy. Great rates off season and the front desk lady was very pleasant and even loaned us her scissors to fix a minor dress crisis. We choose the Ledges over the Samoset where we were DJIng a christmas party that evening, due to the fact the Samoset was 45 more a night. It was only three miles away from where we were DJing and we very much enjoyed our choice.

I booked the Ledges by the Bay as a last minute reservation to attend a conference. I was very pleasantly surprised with my stay. The room had a wonderful view of the Bay from the balcony, and very spacious quarters. The tv was a big-screen HDTV, wonderful quality. The room didn't have a DVD player, but that was not a big deal. Since I stayed here in November, the pool was not open, so I am unable to comment on that. The room had a great little electronic fireplace for appeal. The room was cleaned daily, and very well. The Wi-Fi was great in every room, and the close proximity to the Town of Rockland makes it very appealing to business people and professionals looking for a place to stay! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Everything was great, right down to the cleaning staff, which I had a chance to talk to outside. The rooms (2) were both nice and clean, both with great views of the Bay. We had come up to pick up our daughter at a friends house after hiking the Appalachian Trail, her and I will be coming back to visit again to SHOP! Only complaint we had was the weather! LOL We would or will stay here again.

Room Tip: Go with the King Deluxe, won't be disappointed.
