We ended up staying here at the last minute when we arrived at my family's summer house to find we had no power and needed somewhere to stay for a few days until the power came back.
One of the best features was the underground parking, which was included, since parking can be very scarce in the area. There was also a pool and jacuzzi right off the reception desk. The rooms were large, one room with a couch, table and 2 chairs, a flatscreen tv, and a mini-fridge, microwave, and sink. Central air controller in the room. We were told we could also use the tennis courts and outdoor pool at the sister property which was a short walking distance away. The location is great, walking distance to everything....beach, shops, restaurants. If you don't want to walk the trolley stops right out front. There are balconies off the rooms and a nice wrap-around porch on the first and second floors with seating and tables outside. It's not on the ocean, but you can get there quickly!
The bed was very firm, but there was another flatscreen in the bedroom. Only one bedside table. The housekeeping does tend to finish early, we were called by the desk at 1 and told we were the last room but we were being lazy and just declined housekeeping for the day. They asked if there was anything we needed and brought up some fresh towels right away. The staff was very pleasant and friendly throughout our stay.
I read some other reviews that in my opinion were ridiculous.... a few people complained about the continental breakfast. To that, I say... it's continental breakfast. It's free. Continental breakfast will never be gourmet cuisine, if it's not your thing no need to complain about it. The look is dated, but so are most of the places in the area. If you're going to hold it to the same standards as big-city hotels, you'll probably be disappointed, but it's Maine, just enjoy the small-town atmosphere! It's what makes places like this so nice to visit.
