“One night stand”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We picked this hotel for our one night because it was on our way to Bar Harbor from L.L. Bean, Freeport. We were able to explore 3 lighthouses and multiple harbors. Everything was as we expected. It is an older hotel property but very well maintained! The view is worth the price! Very friendly staff.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room. It's worth the price,

Spent 3 nighs. Has to be the best bargain on the coast. Minutes to Camden, Rockport and Rockland. Lots to do. Very clean, nice breakfast, great view. Also has a computer in the room. No complaints. I'd stay here again without hesitation.

Very clean, comfortable room. The bed was even very comfy, whereas a lot of times motel beds are not. It was very quiet and peaceful the Friday night we were there. Beautiful view of the ocean from our room. Rooms have a small refrigerator/freezer unit which we used for water/cold drinks. There was also a microwave available if one wished to use that. When we made the reservation we had mentioned it was our 39th anniversary, and there was even a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us. They had a continental breakfast with yogurt, bananas, pastries, scones. We would definitely go back again.

Had the pleasure of spending one night at this charming inn. The room we had was spotless. They had new chairs, bedding and paint. It is an older spot but the owners have done an exceptional job updating. Friends stayed with us and there room was also clean and recently updated. The view is beyond belief. We sat on the balcony, looked at ocean, watched birds flying over . The grounds were well kept. Rooms are quiet. Staff helpful and pleasant. They are close to downtown. We cycle so it was a quick ride into town for dinner. Nice shopping near by. Perched on the hill looking out over the water this is a little place with a big heart. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Used there free wifi and had no problems.

We have been here before. We stayed on a Friday. they say free wifi. I found there internet speed just below mediocre. I could see all the other computers in there wifi network which made be concerned that anyone could access my files at anytime...There wifi needs to be fixed to every one can use it. We couldn't Skype with our family like we do every night because of the wifi issues. the nice lady in the office that night was very helpful. even pointing us in the right direction to get something to eat. . I cannot say enough good things about the lady that checked us in.

Room Tip: The rooms by the office have the best internet.

Stayed one night this past week. Quick and easy checkin. Rooms were nice with binoculars, DVDs..
The grounds down to the bay were nice with chairs situated all over the place. Sunrise was early and beautiful.
The breakfast in the coffee room was very nice with juice, coffee's, home made pastries and fruit. Loved the blueberry scones that they make fresh-those scones will make your whole stay!

We have been to Ledges By the Bay a few times in the past. We were in room 22 (water view) and felt that the quality of the rooms have diminished. To be fair, we made management aware of each of the issues below when we checked out:

- It was late May and the heat could not be shut off and, so, we needed to keep our sliding door to balcony open and the a/c on at night.
- When taking a shower, we had water up to our ankles, yuk.
- We also noticed ants in the bathroom (which they were aware of, since there was one ant trap in there).

Our room was a "superior king room" - although I did not think it was superior. The view was lovely and the room was clean. But there are so many inns and properties to choose from - we don't know if we will be back...

Thanks for listening.

We do our very best to ensure that everything is in perfect working order before any guest goes into the room. Unfortunately, on a rare occasion, we may miss something.

We want all of our guests to have a happy stay and I am ALWAYS available to be reached and will fix any issue that our guest may have. These problems have been fixed as of this reply.
