If the inn wasn't right in the village of Castine, I'd probably say it was too expensive, but its location and charm count for a lot. The room was simple and comfortable, if small; the breakfast good, even though only two choices were offered and nothing was unique. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. We loved being able to walk to restaurants and throughout the village.

Room Tip: I believe the rooms on the front are more, but I'm not sure they're worth it. Better to plan to spend some time on the wraparound porch that overlooks the gardens and street.

This is not a boutique hotel
It is a totally charming old fashioned hotel with lovely gardens...beautiful wrap around porch.....perfect cozy tiny bar....the most beautiful breakfast room in Maine. A large room with windows to the garden and charming primitive murals on the walls with scenes of Castine. Other reviews detail the perfect breakfast.

Get a room with a view of the water that's why you are here!
Ask for one of the newly refurbished rooms...very nicely done...understated and tasteful.

Yes....on the third floor hallways the floors and walls are a bit uneven but all the more character.

All the staff were friendly and incredibly helpful .....which included mailing us our windbreakersthat we left in the closet.
Mary at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful ..."the post office is just next door and I fit it all in a flat shipping box".


The Castine Inn is a charming comfortable perfectly located small hotel...it is not luxurious but it is a delight.

We have been visiting Castine Maine for several years now to see our son at the Maine Maritime Academy, opting to stay in Bucksport, what a mistake with the Castine Inn available right in the center of town!!! From our arrival Saturday night, through our departure Monday morning, we were treated to true hospitality and comfort. The location on Main Street is only two blocks from the Harbor, and about three blocks from the college. The staff at the front desk made numerous calls to local restaurants and services when we made inquiries about possible dining or activities. The room was a 2 room suite that accommadated our travel this weekend with my father-in-law, allowing us to stay together with plenty of privacy at a great price. Breakfast was included, which each day included fresh scones, juice, and choices that included poached eggs or real Maine blueberry pancakes, or the second day, bacon kitsch or french toast. I would recommend the Castine Inn to everybody wanting to feel at home in Castine. ( the Inn is open from MMA Graduation weekend - early May to early October)

Indifferent service, maintenance, cleanliness, facilities, especially compared with the inn across the road. There doesn't seem to have been much effort or concern put into providing a comfortable vacation experience or making a guest want to return.

This is a lovely place to stay! We booked at the last minute and they only had their lowest-priced rooms available. I have to say that is was quite a bargain. We paid almost twice as much for rooms that were half as nice elsewhere. I liked the teal-and white color scheme, which gave it a bright, fresh feeling. The toiletries were great. The bed was firm and comfy. We left the window open the first night to let the air in, and neglected to lower the shade. The sound of churchbells going off on the hour and the light streaming in prevented me from getting much sleep. Lesson learned-with the shade drawn and the window closed on night two, I slept much better. There is a ceiling fan and a portable fan as well. I was not bothered by noise from the other rooms.The breakfast room is beautifully decorated with murals on all sides. The scones are flaky and delicious. There are two hot choices, although one day I just had the scones, cereal, and lovely fresh fruit, and was quite content. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. My husband inquired about hiking trails, and the lady at the front desk was more than happy to provide information. I honestly can't imagine staying anywhere else in Castine.
