    We just returned from five days at the Moorings Inn and are, already, looking forward to going back. We knew it was a typical Maine bed/breakfast and were not expecting the Ritz. What we weren't anticipating was the spectacular location and the outstanding staff. Not...More

    Way overpriced even for the Bar Harbor area. I’m always concerned with hotels that demand full payment up front and have a very limited cancellation policy; and when we got there it is obvious why they have it. The Moorings could be considered quaint or...More

    Response from MooringsInn, Owner at The Moorings Inn Waterfront

    Dear Guest, The Moorings Inn main house has a history of additions with the original structure built in 1784. My family has five generations of innkeeping in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Much of what you see has been acquired throughout this time. New items and renovations...More

    An old and shabby facility. Musty smelling with carpets upon carpets and stuff everywhere. We stayed in the Dauntless Suite - dirty wallpaper and curtains. We didn't want to touch anything or sit on anything. Did not stay for "breakfast", escaped into town at the...More

    Dear Guest, As this is a former Sea Captain's home that was first constructed in 1784, once owned by the Hinckley yacht family, and now an Inn since 1938 it does have a lot of history. We reognize that this is a place loved by...More
