Nice hotel, clean and roomy. Lovely staff, great updated breakfast room with deck and sunporch overlooking the water. Delicious home baked breakfast goodies. Rooms were nice and spacious with views of the water. Probably could update the rugs--looked a little old.

Would stay there again. Close to downtown Rockland for shopping and museum visits.

The motel offers clean rooms with wonderful views and an excellent location for mid-coast Maine. However, we were really disappointed in the overall appearance of the buildings and grounds. It is definitely not as appealing as nearby hotels in the same price range. The Ledge's website gives you a much better impression than you see when you arrive at the hotel. The buildings look tired from the outside and the grounds lack landscaping. There were ongoing maintenance issues: ice machine broken, coffee maker in room didn't work, light bulbs out in room, squeaky sliding screen door, breakfast items needed to be replenished more often, orange juice machine produced water.... all little things but they add up when you are paying high season rates. When we compared hotels online, Ledges seemed comparable to nearby Island view Inn and Strawberry Hill Seaside. However, it is not up to par with the other two hotels when you compare the three properties in person. We would not return to the Ledges.

The ocean view in itself is reason enough to stay in this motel.
Beside this, the room was vast and impeccably clean, the staff friendly and helpful, the pool very pleasant and the homemade pastries a nice surprise.
Also, the motel is ideally located to explore the region, especially the amazing Monhegan Island.
We will recommend it and, hopefully, come back for a stay during fall.

This hotel was wonderful, the view was gorgeous from our balcony. The hotel was immaculately clean and the room was very spacious, with nice new linens & towels. Our room was just a queen bed room but it felt like a suite with a coffee maker, mini fridge, and double sinks, one inside the room and another in the bathroom. To us it felt more like a mini-apartment, and I could have easily stayed there very comfortably for a week. Even though it was close to the main road it was quiet, with the fresh Maine air, and birds chirping. But waking up to the view was so relaxing to the mind and the soul. It is very near Camden center by car, and in the other direction you have Denny's a Pizza Hut, and a few other restaurants for a quick bite....Ledges by the Bay was lovely and I would not hesitate to stay there again....and it would be for a longer stay because we loved it!

Like the setting and the proximity to the coastal villages of Camden, Linconville, Rockland. Room has a nice view. Very good size room, large bathroom and very clean. Housekeeping staff did a nice job. In room wifi is excellent. The front office could use an upgraded look and better service. They didn't have area maps! The breakfast food could include healthy options. Still recommend this property.

Old roadside motel in need of much rehab/pull-down. For a cheap vacation with minimum requirements, it is fine. We encountered ice machine that did not work, NO REGULAR COFFEE, lock on door to coffee room needed replacement (we stood in pouring rain trying to get in -- would not open), what tasted like kool-aid offered as orange juice, nowhere to hang/put towels, horrible decor, and paper thin walls (noisy neighbors) & no tissue. Pool close to road.

We were heading up the coast to Acadia and wanted to see the area. I read the good reviews of the Ledges which were on the money. The room was big w/ a great king bed & clean bathroom. Located 6 miles so of Camden & 1.5 miles no of Rockland. Easy drive to 3 lighthouses & good places to eat. We both enjoyed Cappys in Camden just up the road (lobster mac & Cheese). Breakfast had very tasty pastries. Be sure to pick the strong setting for you coffee if you're like me. Our 2 night stay was pleasant & we'll be back. This one is a sure thing.
