The Cedar Crest Inn is a very nice place to spend your time in Camden, even though it's located right on US 1 (which has traffic all day long with many trucks passing by) which might make it a little bit noisy Luckily enough the hotel was not full so the owner gave us a room in a quiet area...

The motel room was clean and comfortable, with a feeling of home in the little details. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The first day, continental breakfast was included because the restaurant, not theirs, was closed. The second day, we received a $5 off coupon for breakfast. Although not theirs, food was great! Motel is quiet, yet close to... More

Close to Camden shop district. Clean and pleasant. Building close to woods cancels out the noise from street. Restaurant on premise with hearty breakfast. Good value considering close proximity to a very touristy town.

The hotel was great!! Exactly what we needed - clean, spacious, comfortable, friendly staff, and walking distance to the restaurants/shops/waterfront.

It was in great need of update. The room still had a few things that were obviously left behind from whomever was there before us, making me think that the room was not completely cleaned before us.
