The location is right on Penobscot Bay with views of the islands and boats in the bay. The property is pristine with very clean rooms, lobby, pool area and outdoor seating areas. The decor is up dated. The bedding is amazing - we had a great night's sleep.
The only con is there are no walking distance restaurants or shops. Everything required a drive. They offer coffee in the morning but a simple continental breakfast would have made it much more convenient. We ended up at Dunkin Donuts which is something we can have at home.
Overall we were VERY satisfied and will definitely recommend and visit again in the future.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view, there's no reason to pick a higher priced room.

This facility is great....from the time of the initial phone contact to checkout. The facility is much nicer than the web site portrays and is extremely well maintained. They have chairs down by the bay and a beautiful pool

This inn was part of our trip along the maine coast. Very close to Camden, but a much quieter location. The rooms were outstanding. We couldn't ask for more. Very large and clean and so modern and updated. Designer finishes throughout. We had a fireplace in our room. It would be perfect for a cool fall evening.
The room looked out to the water, with a sitting porch right outside our door. There's a very long lawn down to the water, with some chairs down there to sit on. The inn sits high up, so the view is really nice from uptop.
They don't serve breakfast, but do offer coffee in the lobby. Actually , the coffee was quite good.
You can go over to the lobby, a very short walk, and take it back to your room or sit there with it.
They offer a 10% discount for breakfast at the diner very nearby.

The pool looked inviting, but it was a little cool out when we went.
We really loved this place.

Room Tip: our room 117 was very large , the view was slightly obstructed by pine trees on one side. You could...

We tried a number of places in the Rockport/Camden area and weren't satisfied until we found the Island View Inn. It is a beautiful place with such comfortable rooms. Each room is decorated so beautifully! And the view from the balcony is gorgeous. I highly recommend this place. You should know they don't serve breakfast but the price is so reasonable that it doesn't matter. I don't think you could find another place for the money that is this nice with an ocean view.

This Inn is situated on one of the most beautiful properties in the area. From your room and balcony you look down across an expanse of green lawn to the oceanfront, where chairs and umbrellas lure you down to look into the cove and out to the ocean. The room is large and clean and nicely decorated, and the bathroom also large, clean and includes a mini fridge. Each private balcony has two chairs. The pool is beautiful, with views of the water. The Inn is set far enough off of Rt. 1 that you do not hear the traffic. The owner and staff are very nice and accomodating. There are many good restaurants close by. We will return!

Room Tip: All rooms are similar and great.

We were not expecting to find a motel anywhere near as nice as this. Especially at the price charged. The best value we found on an extended road trip. We would go out of our way to stay there again.

Room Tip: No elevator, so ask for a first floor room if a lot of luggage.
