Best Western White House Inn
Ranked #6 of 26 Hotels in Bangor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2014

While this property is several miles out of town and tucked behind a truck stop(!!), it is worth spending a night or two there. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and caring, the rooms clean and comfortable and have necessary amenities and the breakfast buffet is the most extensive I have encountered of the free variety. That combination, by itself, puts the White House Inn ahead of most of what Bangor has to offer. Plus, attractive pricing makes this hotel a great value choice.

The major downside is the only nearby lunch/dinner alternative is the truck stop restaurant, which has a varied menu of "home cooked food" and might be quite good, but is it a place for your family to enjoy? The alternatives are several miles away and are largely comprised of the usual chain selections. Fine dining, except for 11 Central, is not to be found in Bangor.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed your stay. We do try to wow with our free breakfast. By offering a large variety we hope that there is something for everyone. Though I have not eaten at 11 Central in a while, I have heard their meals are wonderful. I am sorry that the front desk did not let you know that there is also a seafood restaurant by the name of Angler"s off our exit.

I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed for one night and my request for a first floor room was taken care of and was very close to our car making my husband very happy in carrying luggage considering his age. We used the laundry room and the machines gave the amount of time it would take so I was able to return to the room between times. his was great.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am glad that our laundry set up worked well for you. The laundry key is only assigned to one guest at a time. By doing so we find that it is nice to be able to leave your items washing/drying while you are relaxing in your room or at the pool. I hope the rest of your trip was enjoyable and look forward to seeing you again.

Stayed here on our way to Boston and discovered our new favourite breakfast buffet. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet had a wide assortment of foods that the kids really enjoyed.

Room Tip: Near the interstate so you may want to be on the far side.

This Best Western was recommended to us by neighbours who travel routinely to Canada from the US South. We were very pleased to agree with them. Easy to find, right on the highway without the hassle of going downtown Bangor.

We asked for 2 rooms in the newly renovated section and they were very nice: king bed, very good mattress, large sitting areas with comfortable furniture, big screen tv, big bathroom with double sinks leading into the separate room containing the toilet and tub/shower. (There was a door going into the whole bathroom area from the sleeping area, so if someone gets up in the night, there are 2 doors to have closed to the toilet - nice to be quieter, less light)

Chocolates left on the desk for us; gas fireplace along one wall; heating unit was very quiet; windows were nice and soundproof.

No problem getting a trolley to wheel the luggage in and out. Staff was friendly.

Breakfast had lots of choice, although nothing remarkable....still, it's included and good enough to get one filled up. The eating area was very clean and comfortable - only thing we didn't like was the wall-mounted tv which was blaring out the morning news (not an inviting or pleasant way to start off your morning...they should save the news for people to see in the paper or they can look on their computers & tablets!)

We didn't have to go out hunting for a dinner spot, either - Dysarts is almost across the parking lot and was very good and affordable.

All in all, we've stayed in much less pleasant places and for much more money!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new section! We've been told they're much nicer (although I believe th...

Not only is this a really nice place to stay. Nice, clean rooms and friendly staff, but they have a couple acres of land where you can walk your dogs!! So this has it all. Great location....good breakfast.....very close to a great truckstop.....nice rooms...helpful staff.

Wife and I had to be in Bangor for a mental health getaway. Stayed at our Favorite Best Western, White House Inn.
This place always delivers the best.
There breakfast has added more items besides the usual eggs and sausage, and was terrific both mornings.
Even put new flat screen TV's in the rooms!
We were given our favorite room, managed to hit the pool both afternoons and had an all around great time.
You cannot go wrong at this Best Western.
And, Beth, the front desk representative was outstanding.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine.

Best Western offered a good location for day trips to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Campobella Island (although a 4 hour round trip). The breakfast was excellent and well above other stays. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable as well as pet friendly. Our room was "roomy" (with room to do yoga without being in my spouse's way), clean, quiet and comfortable. Keurig offered a better coffee option than other stays. All in all, worth a visit!!
