“Very dog friendly”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We have stayed in the Camden area many times at some exclusive places, but this time we were accompanied by our large dog so our choices were limited. We obviously made the right decision staying here. It is located in a quiet area yet just a short walk to the harbor, and there is a big private back yard for walking your furry friend. Dogs are also welcome on the outdoor patio for continental breakfast and by the outdoor firepit where you can enjoy smores in the evening. The staff especially Ralph was very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again even if our dog isn't with us!

Room Tip: There are limited first floor rooms to accomodate pets so be sure to call ahead.

My wife and I along with pet dog were returning home from a vacation in northern Maine with family. We decided to take a leisurely route back by traveling Rt 1 instead of I-95 on Friday 14SEP12. Things were going well until our vehicle began running funny. Fortunately, we found a dealer in Rockland ME who could repair our car but not until Saturday AM (he came in on his day off - Shepard Motors but that's another positive review elsewhere). Our first attempt at a room was rebuffed due to no pet policy. We found the Riverhouse Hotel listing on a website providing pet-friendly accommodations. I talked with Ralph who was very understanding and had a room for us. Upon registering, we noticed the description was accurate- close to center of things but quiet. The next delightful surprise was our room - cheery, neat, clean and obviously pet-friendly -- water and food bowl (with a few biscuits) plus a plush dog bed. The hotel location makes walking into the center of Camden a breeze. The nightly outdoor fire with S'Mores is delightful. The rate was reasonable and the AM breakfast satisfying. The staff are very helpful and cheerful. All in all - what could have been a disaster was a welcome surprise.

Room Tip: Those with pets are limited to the 1st floor but the pet rules are fair and not outrageous. A great...

Thanks for such a great visit!!! The location is fabulous right across from the harbor with plenty of FREE parking. Check in was a breeze. The lobby made me feel like I was in a friend's living room. We swam in the VERY CLEAN pool in the morning then had a breakfast without even leaving the hotel. The room was clean and had all the things we needed, coffee pot in the room, hair dryer etc. Everyone greeted us like we were family! I would recommend the Riverhouse Hotel to anyone wanting to visit Camden.

Thank you so very much for the quick and easy check in, the perfect room for my sons and I and the warm welcome Ralph. You floored me with your generousity and patience.
I cannot believe how nice everyone is at this hotel. The breakfast attendant, the housekeeping, but especially Ralph. Having the umbrellas available at the door was such a nice touch along with the s'mores. We felt so valued and welcome! Nice clean, quiet, safe place to stay. Will come again here no doubt!

It would be difficult to argue with the location of this hotel or anything else for that matter. The center of town is steps away, as is the park and all restaurants. The staff is very friendly, the rooms clean and the rate is reasonable for the location. The breakfast each morning was satisfying and the gentleman who works the breakfast room does a great job keeping it clean and making sure everything is filled. We considered the hotel right on Route 1 but we were glad we decided on Riverhouse. The traffic and noice from Route 1 were never a problem for us since we were just off the main road. As an added bonus there's a terrific ice cream place right across the little footbridge that leads into town. The best ice cream we had during our nine day trip through Maine. Highly recommend Riverhouse.

when planning to visit Camden we used Google to look for hotel. Although the Riverhouse was not the top rated in town it should be. Perfect location w/easy and close parking, an outdoor firepit w/ schmores at night, indoor pool, pet friendly, and kid friendly, good continental in AM all in all a "can't go wrong"

Room Tip: with a pet we had a first floor room which was ideal and easy

Very well located in downtown with free, convenient parking. Rooms afre quiet and comfortable. Staff is universally friendly. I would like to see oatmeal at the breakfast buffet but it is nevertheless above average. I loved the touch of having tomato vines growing at the entrance. Their smell reminded me of my grandparents' garden many years ago. I also appreciated the basket of cherry tomatoes at the reception desk and the offering of them to guests. We would stay there again if we return to Camden and would recommend it.

Room Tip: We normally avoid rooms near elevators but here we were only a few yards from one and we noticed no...
