Riverside Inn Bangor
Ranked #23 of 26 Hotels in Bangor
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We were travelling through Maine late at night. Our poor planning left us without a room at 2am.....things were getting ugly. I called multiple hotels in portland, Augusta, and Bangor; everyone was full. We were just about to sleep in the car, which would have been a nightmare since we hd already driven 13 hrs. Fortunately, we called the Riverside Inn and they were the only hotel in a 150 mile radius with a room. No kidding. I am giving them 4 stars because they saved our @$$e$. The hotel itself is quite old and looks like a refurbished hospital wing. It was clean and the staff very friendly at 3 am. They also take pets. I really was grateful that they had a place tht night. I dont even remember the cost.....

The lobby looks like a regular hotel lobby, but the room reminds me of a quaint bed and breakfast. With a small round table, and two mahogany antique chairs. A large television, large dresser, and two beautiful mirrors, all made from mahogany. The mahogany head board on the bed reminds me something from the Victorian era. A very comfortable recliner, and bed. It is connected by a series of hallways to the hospital, so I can walk and visit my grandmother without getting wet in the rain. The only thing I did not like, is the shower head was missing, and some of the wallpaper was peeling. But other than that, its wonderful.

I have no idea how anyone could say they liked this motel. The minute I walked in the room I started to cry. This was the last motel available in the Bangor area and increase their price did they ever. We had two very small single beds, smallest room I had ever seen and the price was over $100 a night. This would be ok at a discount for someone who is seeing someone at the hospital, other than that, I would not recommend.

My sister and I stayed in Bangor for a few days on family business. The Riverside Inn provided a very pleasant, relaxed and restful place to end the day. The breakfast room had a good variety of easy choices with an attendant to help and replenish as needed. I particularly liked the Christmas decorations that gave a homey ambiance and the "day of the week" mats in the elevator. Charming!

If you need to spend the night at EMMC it would be fine. Otherwise there are many choices at $99.00 per night plus tax. The room was small (at my request) and the lobby smelled like a hospital. The bed was uncomfortable and the towels were thin. I was cold and could not figure out how to set the temperature..

I needed a room near the hospital at the last minute, to visit a sick relative on Thanksgiving weekend, this place is connected to the hospital and extremely reasonable in price, the room was a decent size, very clean, and they have put in a new heat system (no noise). Yes it is an older place, but it is a great deal!

We just spent one night here during a travels, the room was large enough and very clean, the lady working on the front desk was nice and helpful. We did have a small breakfast there in he morning and it was good bu basic, toast, muffins, tea, coffee.
A nice place to rest your head. I do not know how close it was to any thing in the Bangor area as we were just passing thru.
