Oh how remiss of me. In gushing about the service, I forgot to mention the food. I had a Cajun Pasta(?!), so I didn't know what to expect, but it was delicious. This was followed by a rhubard sponge that was so tangy and light, I was tempted to have another piece. My partner had Gammon & Chips(I think), and...

Close to UM at Orono, perfect place to stay for homecoming weekend. Hotel is older, but incredibly clean and well kept up. We arrived at night, and owner brought us a large flashlight so we could see off balcony at river below. Parking lot needs repairing, but they are probably waiting for local roadwork to be completed.

Great location for accessing rural Maine along the Penobscot river. Cook breakfast early and get out to see the countryside. As a business traveler it was nice to have a river rather that a freeway nearby.

We arrived around 10 but was able to check in and get our room easily. We booked on Priceline and the inn keeper called and made sure our room was acceptable. The room was very large with stove, refrigerator and table. The room was outdated but overall clean. We used the room as a place to sleep and a quick...

This was our first visit to Maine, and our objective was to settle our only son at the university of Maine. We were looking for a place which was close to the university and which had a small kitchen area as we prefer cooking our food due health related issues. On reaching the place we found the place to be...

Very nice rooms, clean and comfortable. The owners are great and the view is awesome. Close to Bangor and about an hour from Acadia National Park. Great hotel for the price. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to retuning in the future! Thanks Jayne Zeitlin!

A delightful place. It is in the middle of a residential district . We had our doubts when we first saw it but once inside it is delightful. Large room with two burner stove and a kitchen sink. Both spotlessly clean. There is a little fridge and microwave and table and chairs. Beds very comfy and all is very clean....

The owner/manager was friendly & accommodating but the place looks a little rough. It would appear to me that they are catering to the workmen/workcrew trade and it seems like there is a lot of wear & tear on the facility. Nothing to look at from the outside but the room was clean and large, somewhat mis-matched in furnishings -...
