Reviewed 14 July 2013

Stayed one night at this lovely inn and will make this my new go to place in Maine. It is an older motel, but in excellent condition. The rooms have older windows which open to allow the night breeze in, and the style of the rooms remind you of a night at Grammies house. Matelasse bedspreads, lace curtains and blue rose wall paper. Everything is immaculate, I don't believe I have been in a cleaner hotel room. The grounds are beautifully maintained, with a private pool area surrounded by plants and greenery. The onsite restaurant has wonderful home cooking, stacks of blueberry pancakes, carafes of coffee instead of a cup, and a takeout pizza menu with some really innovative combinations. I slept as well here as I do at home, which was a lovely surprise. It was just like going home. Friends stayed at the sister property further down the road, Country Inn and had the same wonderful experience. If you are looking for some really fine down home country hospitality, look no further.

If you want to stay in Camden, a very pretty little town, but like a less personal place than a B & B, check out the Cedar Crest. We loved our stay at the Camden Windward B & B but B's are not everyone's cup of tea. The exterior of the Crest was very nice. We had excellent pizza at the restaurant on the property, Elm Street Grille.

What this motel does NOT offer:
- Ocean views, or proximity to the lovely harbor
- Large, well-soundproofed rooms
- A luxury, pampering experience

What is DOES offer:
- Excellent value
- Clean rooms
- Convenient location, right on Rte 1, a bit out of the central town, but not too far either
- Friendly staff
- A sweet little pool

If this is what you're looking for, you'll be pleased!

Very nice room, comfortable and clean. Good location. Excellent restaurant attached. Good laundry facility. Had an issue with WiFi which was resolved quickly by the management after we complained. Great value. I would highly recommend this place.

We had booked another hotel in the same price range when visiting Camden but when we arrived, let's just say the pictures did not match the property. We checked out the rooms and then bolted in search of something else. That's when we found the Cedar Crest Inn.

Front desk staff was very pleasant. It looks like they've recently spruced the place up...if not then it's very well taken care of. The rooms were huge and everything looked new. It had a bit of a funny smell (not a bad smell) could have been new carpeting. The room was spotless and the beds were comfy.

It's just about a three to five minute ride from the center of Camden. We didn't eat in the restaurant attached but we did stop in for a drink. Some of the nicest people run the place and work there. We were told by locals they have fantastic pizza and great breakfasts.

Thank you for your kind words and a wonderful review of our quaint property! We try to think of everything: maps, a restaurant for breakfast, umbrellas, a coin-op laundry on site and wonderful conversation! Our rooms are simple but very clean, comfy and quiet. We are at a wonderful location, just one half mile south of Camden Village and you can not beat the price for the area!

Convenient located although not that close to main town (walking distance), especially if it is pouring! It was a good value and the hotel room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast is not included but there is an adjacent restaurant that gets full after 9am, so get early! Food it is alright. I understand that they have as well lunch and dinning options. Front desk clerks very nice and attentive.

Our reservation at a nearby motel was botched, and that owner set us up here. What luck! This is a gem in a great location, great service, easy access. The restaurant is nothing special, but it has excellent local Marshall Wharf Ales!
