Great location, good restaurant, not so good hotel
Posted Sep 16, 2014
Hotel location was PERFECT . . . Right on the water in the middle of EVERYTHIING this small town has to offer, including a whale watch cruise, which was fun. . Good restaurant with every table sharing a water view. Service was fine and friendly. Breakfast buffet was a nice bonus. All rooms appear to have a balcony but they offer almost NO privacy from the guests in adjoining rooms due to only partial and temporary screening. The view from the balcony is great, but since smoking is allowed (ashtrays are provided) our loud and cigar smoking neighbor forced us inside our room and required us to close our window. However, cigar smell still invaded our room. Room itself was clean but VERY dated and PAST its prime. Furniture was well worn and vintage yard sale and mismatched. Bathroom was VERY small but clean and well stocked with the essentials. TV was from the 90's and small screen. Valet parking onsite was required due to small lot, which make any interim day trips after check-in somewhat inconvenient, as you have to track down an attendant to retrieve your keys and unblock your car. If you are only looking for a short stay at a hotel in the middle of a neat little Maine harbor town that has a restaurant and bar onsite in case of bad weather . . . and aren't expecting to spend any time in your room, this can be the place for you.
