Great location, great beach!

Posted Dec 18, 2015
Pros: The bed was extremely comfortable.
Cons: Early Sunday morning, we could hear people walking on the top floor, and the noise was as loud as if they were in the room: bad sound-proofing.
The view and the location are exquisite in Maine. We only stay one night in order to judge if we would go back during the summer. It must be a perfect place to spend summer vacations.

Luxurious and charming in heart of Maine coast

Posted Dec 7, 2015
Pros: Everything
Cons: Rooms were a little noisey, could hear people walking in hallway.
Location: Location was majestic with views of the Atlantic and scattered small islands abutting the shoreline.
Beyond expectation in every way. Luxurious hotel, beautiful coastal views of the Atlantic, with a warm and friendly staff. Look forward to a return stay.

A great getaway

Posted Sep 19, 2015
What a beautiful facility! Two bedroom suite overlooking the cove was stunning with nothing left to want. The room's decor was fresh and trendy, and oh so comfortable, right down to the gas fireplace and huge covered deck for reading or watching the tide roll in. Even the restaurant was a delightful surprise, with fare prepared from local harvests and sustainable seafood. we loved it.

Stellar staff. Great location. Excellent stay!

Posted Sep 9, 2015
Location: Lobster Shack at Two Lights for low-key dinner with an amazing view. The Good Table for brunch, excellent cocktails and HUGE sticky buns!
We had a terrific time at Inn by the Sea. The staff was wonderful and attentive. The room was spacious and the bed was a cloud! Above all, it was the little things (s'mores by the fire, cookies every afternoon, fresh water and snacks) that made our stay over the top.

Fantastic setting, service could improve

Posted Sep 8, 2015
The hotel is in a lovely setting with views over the bay and a pleasant short walk to the beach. The rooms are spacious (we had a garden suite on the ground floor which had a partial sea view) and comfortable. Given the cost of the rooms the service was lacking and could easily be improved. Things were taken care of quickly when asked but should have already been addressed. Relatively minor examples but it detracted from the experience; there was furniture missing on the deck, coffee mugs weren't cleaned following the maid service and it took easily 45 minutes to get breakfast served. The restaurant was particularly bad although hit and miss. The setting is lovely which adds a hefty premium to the prices. We tended to eat out after a particularly slow breakfast but on other occasions it was fine. The staff were always friendly but just a bit disjointed and forgetful. Nothing that can't be easily fixed but ultimately not good value given the price.

Marie, Glad that you enjoyed your recent visit. Please consider a 3rd or 4th floor accommodation for a return visit, as to ensure the most private setting. Also know that a new breakfast menu is being launched shortly that offers a broadened price range for all to enjoy. Best, Jim Glanville General Manager
