Looked for a place in the area for a summer getaway and found the island view, all around great experience, reasonable rates, spotless rooms, amazing grounds perfectly kept, and location in the middle of everything, not to mention the views from the oceanfront rooms. Definitely highly recommended.

We spent 4 nights at Island View last week and enjoyed every minute. The balcony with a water view was so peaceful, the room was beautifully furnished and looked like it had just been painted. Everything in the hotel is pleasing to the eye. The landscaping is also perfect for the area, beautiful flowers and plants everywhere you look. The front desk staff was very cheerful and helpful. The infinity pool overlooking the bay is beautifully designed and very relaxing. This is a perfect spot for a get-away.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a bed that faces the water.

My husband, daughter and I stayed here last week. It was perfect! Great view, large rooms, very quiet. I was surprised by how nice the pool was - I was not expecting to lay around a pool in Maine, but the weather was fantastic and the setting was phenomenal. They have little seating areas with umbrellas set up around the grounds, including by the rocky seashore. Great places to have a glass of wine. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views.

Every room has a spectacular view, even though the day we were there the weather wasn't co-operating. The room was very clean, well appointed and had a great feel with a balcony and opening doors which meant we could enjoy the fresh air. The person at reception was very helpful, proving suggestions of where to visit and dinner choices which turned out to be excellent. The only downside is that breakfast isn't available but the suggested establishment in Rockland turned out to be fantastic.

Room Tip: From what I could see, all rooms looked good

This has to be the cleanest room we have ever stayed in! This Inn looks like a motel from the outside but the rooms are gorgeous! Absolutely loved the decor, great colors, and attention to detail. Room was large with private balcony and sweeping views to the Penobscot. Set back and down a knoll from Rt. 1 so you can't see the road for of the Inn. Beautiful infinity pool. Loved this Inn! These owners have done it up right and employees are friendly and helpful. We travel a lot and this Inn is a hidden gem.

We stayed at the Island View Inn on our way to Acadia. The room overlooked the ocean and the view was spectacular. We had drinks by the waters edge and watched ospreys dive to catch their dinner. The location of the Inn is great - between Camden and Rockland you have the choice of dozens of fantastic restaurants. The room was impeccably clean and the bed was super comfortable. We would suggest a swim in the infinity pool during your stay. There is no restaurant on the premises so you should plan accordingly.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with the bed facing the water so you can always see the ocean.
