“Great Hotel For Stay in Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

On our way from Acadia to Boston for our flight home, I decided we would spend 2 nights in the Camden area.After the reviews on TA, I decided on this hotel and am glad I did. The hotel is an older one, but the rooms have recently been remodeled. Large rooms, very clean and a nice balcony overlooking the bay. The room has a separate sink from the bathroom which is always a plus. The continental breakfast was good enough and is in a nice room with a nice view. The hotel is located so it was very easy to visit Rockport, Rockland and Camden and to drive back and forth to visit different areas at different times. Also considering the prices at other hotels we thought this hotel was an exceptional value for the amount we paid. We would have no problem recommending Ledges to anybody visiting this area that does not wish to stay at a B&B

We have had the opportunity to stay in several places in the Camden, Me area. This was my second stay at Ledges by the Bay. My friend and I enjoyed our visit. The room was clean and comfortable. The view was lovely. We enjoyed sitting and relaxing and taking in the view from the breakfast area as well. My only suggestion would be to add a restroom for guests that are not able to occupy their rooms on arrival. I would enjoy being a guest here again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room facing the bay.

Pictures on-line were inviting, especially the view, and the price was very competitive for time of year. So, we decided to give Ledges a try. What a pleasant surprise. No, not modern shiny steel and glass but thoroughly updated - or well maintained traditional. Our delux room included a microwave, Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator-freezer, and a laptop computer with internet access. It even came with a pair of binoculars which came in handy for exploring the exceptional view.
Given the opportunity we will return to Ledges for a longer stay.

We came to Maine to celebrate our 25th anniversary. This was a lovely place to stay. The location is right on the bay and the view from our window was amazing. We had a little balcony and were able to watch the sunrise. The grounds were well taken care of and the room was comfortable and clean. It was located close to Camden and we enjoyed our dinner and shopping there. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Maine.

Very clean, updated, great personnel. But only give 5 stars to places like Aulani, The Grand Hyatt, etc.
No issues and would definitely recommend. Reasonable rates and easy drive to everal restaurants and attractions.

This was our first visit to the State of Maine. We chose Ledges by the Bay because of the good reviews and because of its location to things we wanted to see, particularly the Farnsworth Museum and Wyeth Center in Rockland. It was perfect! From the breath-taking view from our room to the most tasty daily breakfasts, it was a trip to remember. We would definitely recommend Ledges by the Bay to everyone!

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with a view of Penobscot Bay!

We tried this establishment from other TripAdvisor comments which were very helpful. The place is spotless and quiet and has a lovely waterfront setting. The deluxe rooms have everything you need right down to binoculars! The staff were very friendly and helpful! Great value for a waterfront setting.

Room Tip: Second floor is great however may be a bit of a challenge for elderly who walking impaired.
