4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

this is really a very nice motel rather than an inn. It has lovely grounds, pretty rooms and wonderful ocean views. We could get coffee in the lobby in the morning but no breakfast of any kind. The front desk people were always very friendly and helpful. All in all the place was comfortable and pretty. We would be happy to visit there again.

We stayed here overnight and could have stayed longer, definitely a great find! The room was spacious and the view was spectacular! The pool was heated, clean and perfectly placed to take advantage of the view with the infinity edge!

Absolutely perfect in every respect. Unparrelled hospitality, impecable housekeeping, dynamic water views, champiionship rates, well appointed, large rooms, private, quiet,. we drove back another 100 miles to stay another night, after disappointing viists to other lodging proved sub par. we tried to stay another night but they were booked. Parking is mere feet from your door, convienent to restaurants, the offshore is less than 0.5 miles north, and we were equally as impressed with it, breakfast and supper. take my advice and if they have a vacancy, snap it up. actually too good for words to describe. top notch in every respect with a splendid view.

My husband and I stayed at the Island View Inn last weekend and I can't say enough about our stay. The view of Penobscott Bay from our room was breathtaking. The staff were very friendly and informative. The Inn is spotless. We have NEVER stayed in such a clean hotel, inn etc.....The Inn is just beautiful.

We are already looking forward to going back in the fall.

We arrived late and the key was taped to the office door. The decor of the room had a nautical theme that was amazing, like a ships cabin. Refrigerator in the closet, the property has balconies and ocean views. Housekeeping left little gifts for my daughter, a nice touch. Chairs with umbrellas are set up by the cove. The swimming pool is very clean and heated with water features. I brought my kayak and paddled around the cove each day. The staff could not have been nicer. The condition of this property is A+ I'm a stickler for good beds. They are very good.

Our deluxe ocean view room was beautifully decorated in yellow ,blues and white. The bed faced the ocean, so waking to the sunrise was divine. The water sparkled like diamonds as the schooners sailed by. The room entrance was on the first floor( super convenient), but the balcony was elevated over the sloping property, and the view could not have been more beautiful.
Before dinner, we enjoyed prosecco down by the Bay. Four wonderful days! Convenient to restaurants in area. The local lady who worked at the front desk was very friendly . A resident cat with a colorful history on site, with it's very own story book.

We have stayed in many motels in the area and have found the Island View Inn a super choice. It is extremely clean, which is number one priority, and the view and price can't be beat. I would recommend this Inn to anyone and everyone. I am sure people have had their issues with the Inn but that can be said about any hotel/Inn. It is located between Camden and Rockland which makes it convenient to both towns. Though you can't walk to either town from the Inn, you are away from the hustle and bustle of town. We have stayed twice and will go back.
