“The best sleep I've had in years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

I stayed here for a weekend and to do some Christmas shopping. Both days I woke up at my usual very early hour only to fall back asleep because the bed was soooo comfortable! The staff couldn't be more helpful and nice. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic. I'm usually a very active traveler, but I was quite content to stay in the room and enjoy the private balcony and the million dollar view!
Camden is the quintessential coastal Maine town. We had dinner at "Fresh" and with a name like that, well the food just has to be, and it was. Don't miss the Farnsworth Museum in Rockland. Lots of Wyeth paintings from all 3 generations.
I can't wait to go back to the Lord Camden and catch up on my sleep!

Room Tip: The higher rooms have better views.

the staff at the Lord Camden Inn was top notch. Rooms were clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was excellent, as are dining accommodations. Dogs everywhere, so beware if you are not a dog lover (we are not). We knew this going into our stay and decided that location and pleasant rooms were worth it. Our winter getaway with family was certainly made merry by the all staff. Great coastal town to visit during holiday season. Inn runs excellent specials for off season visiting. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Quiet is in village view rooms

I read a couple of reviews that were not so great and must say I was surprised.....I am a traveler who always finds something to complain about...but there are no complaints here!!!What can I say about the Lord Camden Inn!? I have stayed at the Lord Camden before and it was great...Savina helped with my reservation and was very PATIENT while I made up my mind, Scott greeted me when I arrived and made sure I had everything I needed and was always available throughout my stay. My room was gorgeous, VERY clean and just PERFECT for my needs. I traveled with my two small dogs and they were treated just as nicely as I was. The housekeeping staff are so friendly and willing to help with whatever I needed. Everyone I encountered at the Lord Camden Inn seemed genuinly happy to be there! It's perfectly located, central and feels like home. The buffet breakfast is great, lots of choices and the biscuits are real homemade buttermilk biscuits!!
Love the Kuerig coffee maker in the room, the tray of freshly made cookies downstairs in the lobby, the balcony in my room !!! That view of the harbor!!!....what can I say....
I can't say enough about the Lord Camden Inn. Like I said, I have stayed here before on a quick overnite, and am so glad I came here again for a 4 day weekend to celebrate Christmas with my two pups!
We love the Lord Camden Inn!
See you next Christmas!!

Room Tip: Can't beat a harbor view room!

The downtown location was perfect for us, and during the last week of December there were no worries about street noise. We booked a room in their lowest price category, so we didn't expect anything palatial. What we got was a room that felt a little tight, but was excellent in every other respect. Notably, the bed was incredibly luxurious and comfortable.

The furnishings are traditional and provide an old New England charm, yet the fit and finish of this hotel are at a level one would expect from a newly constructed building.

The service was excellent and the breakfast was good but not great. There were a variety of cereals, breads, etc. Also, there were hard boiled eggs and make-your-own waffles.

On the downside, the lobby seating is pretty limited and the room had air-conditioning/heating unit that cycled on and off all through the evening, making for less than ideal sleeping conditions. We finally just turned it off.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There weren't many other guests and we didn't see any pets. We will leave it to others to comment on what it is like here during the high season.

Having grown up in Camden, I can remember the day this Inn opened on Main Street. It was a great addition to the lodging choices in town and the location is simply the best. But the fine rehab of an old industrial building at the time, is now showing significant age with little or no repair being undertaken to keep the place up to standards. It has long been my choice to stay on my frequent business trips, but these days I am annoyed and disappointed in dirty carpets, chipping paint, filthy balconies and burned out lightbulbs.

Until they undertake a major renovation, there are much better choices in town these days.

The Inn is located on the river and on the main street of Camden...allows you to venture out into the town and onto the waterfront with great ease. Beautiful sea coast town. The town library is a must see, go in and check out all its levels...Enjoy this town and the chance to sail out onto the bay..

The Inn is a very comfortable place to stay. Love the breakfast room and morning chats with guests.

Room Tip: all rooms have views, the main street side allows a look at the ocean front
