“Can't Get Any Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

From the hospitable staff, to the well maintained room, cookies at check in and the best breakfast of our 2500 mile trip, all aspects of our stay at this hotel were perfect. There is, though one fly in the ointment.

When I elected to book the room from the hotel's web site, I was sent to a different URL, HotelOne.com. There I made the reservation, provided my credit card number as security and requested a fridge for the storage of medications. Much to my surprise the hotel charge was processed 2 weeks prior to the scheduled check in date and the fridge request was not delivered to the hotel. This I learned when I called to question the early processing. Finally, when I checked out of the hotel and asked for a receipt, I was advised that a receipt was not available because I had booked the room through a 3rd party.

I had planned to pay for the room by cash but the early processing of my Canadian credit card prevented that and cost me foreign exchange fees. Next time I will make my reservations by phone.

Room Tip: Don't book your room online. Do it by phone to get the best service from the helpful hotel staff...

This is perhaps the best family inn in bangor. The morning bfast is a very good example of service as well as their front desk. clean rooms but be careful that some blow their smoke out the windows. We love this place for value for the $$

good value for your money Close to shopping great place to stay if you are in Town for shopping Rooms were clean but needs some updating. A little traffic noise as we were on 2nd floor facing street. This is the first time we stayed here will stay again if in for shopping. The Staff were very nice .

Room Tip: Very good breakfast lots of choices very clean and staff were very friendly

We traveled to Bangor for a three day 2 night girls getaway and shopping trip. Before leaving home I printed off a coupon for a great walk in rate, almost $20 off the internet booking rate. On arrival, I asked if they had rooms available at that rate, was told certainly and the rate was applied to both nights! That's the kind of service that keeps people coming back time and time again. I never even consider staying anywhere else, and usually stay there at least twice to three times a year. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, reception and cleaning staff are very friendly and accommodating and the location can't be beat for a shopping trip! With free breakfast thrown in, you are ready to start your day at no extra cost and without losing any of your valuable work or shopping time. What more could a traveler ask for!

Clean room, very inviting staff, excellent location, and a great value. I will stay here again. The complimentary breakfast was an added value. We stayed here to have access to the local colleges. The location was perfect for this, however, this is also the perfect spot for a shopping get-away.

I stayed on the second floor, in the front of the building right above the lobby. The traffic noise was annoying, and we heard an airplane here and there. The worst part overall was the noise from other rooms, the walls are pretty thin in comparison to newer places(The hotel seems old and outdated, giving it a homey feel yet gives it a disadvantage.) I heard music most of the night and door slamming and even people talking, but nothing can really be done and it's understandable. If you're a heavy sleeper, this is a great place. It's fairly clean and they even had stew ready to eat in the lobby all night and day. I would stay again if I had too, though it's worth the extra $20 or so to stay at the Comfort inn, or Quality inn.

Wonderful, quaint hotel. A hidden secret in Bangor. The Inn is clean, has large airy rooms. Tastefully decorated. A very quick efficient check in, The front desk clerk was very helpful, parking is plentiful. The front lobby is warm and inviting. Looking forward to staying here again!
