“comfortable, friendly and clean”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We have stayed here many times with it's close proximity to Colby College. The front desk people are extremely friendly, the rooms are comfortable(great beds) although there can be noise from adjoining rooms. We love the location right off 95 and the continental breakfast works just fine for us.( bagels, cereal, fruit, yogurt) An extra bonus - a special rate for Colby parents - that works for us when we feel the need to visit our daughter many times because we miss her!

Good room with comfy king bed. Our room had a gas fireplace and massage chair! We will stay here everytime we are in the area. Basic continental breakfast, but connected to the governer's for paid breakfast. Friendly staff, and good help at the front desk. Has discounted rates for local schools.

I spent the night of 8/24/12 at the Fireside Inn & Suites in Waterville. This hotel is located right off Interstate 95. Very convenient as I had been driving all day and needed to find a place to spend the night quickly. The desk agents were very friendly and accomodating. Check in was quick and welcoming. My room was very well kept.Large flat screen television with a fireplace added a very cozy feel. Pool and Hot Tub were inviting and open until 11 pm! Unfortunately I was not able to grab breakfast in the morning but from what I saw, it looked like they had a nice display. Maybe next time.

I would highly reccomend a visit the next time that you are in the area.

Stayed here during a business trip for a couple of nights and was very happy with my stay. Front desk staff was so nice and helpful!! Room was big - it was warm initially, even with the ac on, but cooled off after awhile. Bathroom and linen was very clean & they have bath & body works soap!! Would definately stay here again!

We came to Waterville make a day of shopping in the outlets of Freeport, the hotel is a good stop between quebec and freeport, the next day we had only one hour drive . Fireside Inn is a great hotel, clean, friendly staff, good breakfast (many choices: muffin, yugurt, cereals, bagel, coffee) and finally, when you check in they give us two superb whoopie pies!!!!

Staff extremely polite and facility very clean. Owners have conveyed their sensitivity to all of their employees and they are welcoming to all who have cancer and/or may be having surgery and treatment at the 2 local hospitals. Very generous and helpful.

Thank you for writing about your recent visit. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and found the room freshly renovated. We are constantly updating the property to make sure that everything works and our guests are comfortable. You may have been in one of the rooms where we recently added refrigerators, microwaves and 42" flat- panel television. We have completed all rooms with refrigerators and microwaves, and will complete the televisions by the end of July. We also recently added five more rooms with fireplaces. We will continue to rennovate and innovate to re-earn your trust.
