“Nice property overlooking the bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

This hotel was a nice place to stay at, not too expensive. It is in need of renovation, but that is in progress right now. Continental breakfast, included, is small but good. Friendly staff, good restaurants not far away (although none walking distance). We stayed in the king room on the second floor, with a view. It had a cute little alcove/seating area. Unfortunately it has a big step down to get into the bathroom. There was a sign on the door, but only visible from one direction. My husband nearly fell. (This I wrote up in my review on the card they left for that purpose, and they talked to me about it. They will address that with more noticeable markings.) The chairs in the room were not comfortable for sitting in for long. WiFi was good and strong. The bed was comfortable. The room had a small fridge, which was good, but it was very noisy and woke us up when the compressor cycled. We ended up unplugging it during the night, and kept our few items in the ice bucket with ice to keep them cold. Those were minor issues. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Had a lovely stay this past weekend in Rockport at Glen Cove. Quiet, comfortable, super clean , homey and very reasonably priced including WIFI and breakfast. Central location between Rockland and Camden was very convenient. The owner was friendly and helpful. Very pleased with our stay. We booked a return stay for the week of July 4th. So looking forward to returning to the Rockport / Camden area!

We were pleasantly surprised by the cheeriness of our room. King size bed was very comfortable, sliding door to private deck w/ railing so we could let the dog out for fresh air, front porch area w/ chairs. Decor was blue & white, room was nicely appointed with nightstands & dresser, large flat screen tv, refrigerator & the management was nice enough to get a microwave for us. 2 comfortable chairs & small table for snacking or resting your computer-no desk however. We had 1 of 2 dog friendly rooms, with a view of tidal bay- very nice & peaceful. Chairs weren't set out yet due to being there before Memorial Day season. Very reasonable off season rate. Quiet location- back from highway. Rooms are offset somewhat so you don't share 100% of the adjoining rooms walls-unique setup. Continental breakfast included home made blueberry donuts (don't know if they were baked on premise). Good heating/AC for the room.Only negatives: rear deck light stays on all night,carpet was dirty in heavily traveled areas (of course it had rained the previous 3 days so maybe it hadn't been cleaned professionally yet) & the first front porch board was rotting out. As stated by another visitor it's a great area to use for seeing Camden, Belfast, Searsport to the north, Boothbay & Wiscassit to the south & the region around Union to the west. Bar Harbor is a bit too far for a day trip. We will definitely return & will spread the news of this gem to friends & family!

Room Tip: If you travel with a dog-use Harbor Hounds in Rockland for daycare/boarding- great owner & great...

We appreciate you taking the time to review Glen Cove. We take our guest's comments very seriously. After reading your comments, we took a look at the carpeting in Room 6 and we have ordered new carpeting. We agree that the carpeting was showing its age. It will be installed the first week of June. The blueberry donuts are homemade, however not by us! They are baked daily by The Willow Bake Shop. Our Continental Breakfast will expand Memorial Day weekend and will include, cereals, english muffins, raisin bread, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, yogurts, and those homemade blueberry donuts. We agree that it is a great base for seeing Camden, Belfast and Boothbay and Wiscassit.
Thank you for spreading the news about Glen Cove Inn & Suites.

We were very pleased and satisfied with our stay!!! The room was beautifully decorated and everything was extremely clean. Ice was close to our room and their was no noise during the night to disrupt our sleep. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone. Very happy.

Room Tip: We had a south side room, ground floor that was wonderful.

We hadn't stayed at Glen Cove for several years so decided to stay during our (4-days) September visit this year especially since we now have a dog and they have dog-friendly rooms (2). These rooms have a nice deck off the back door (with the Bay view)!

We always visit our very favorite ME locations: Rockland/So.Thomaston/Camden/Belfast every fall ! Remembered from past years that the rooms were clean and nicely decorated (no two are the same!). We were not disappointed... still as nice and Matt, the owner, continues to work and improve premises. The plantings/flowers around the property are lovely and the view of the Bay is nice as well. Off-season pricing was a plus!

This location is great as you can go off in so many different directions. The continental breakfast offered on their large outdoor deck is very nice... from cereal to bagels to english muffins/yogurt/toast/hard boiled eggs/banana/juice/coffee. It's a nice opportunity to meet other guests as well. We chatted w/Matt and some of his staff and that was always pleasant.
We'll be back, God willing, next year :)

From reservations to check out,there was nothing they could've done to make it better!!! We stayed in a pet-friendly room and it was perfect. There were no pet smells or stains. This was the cleanest pet-friendly room we've stayed in. The staff was very friendly and super efficient. Thr breakfast was great with many choices to choose from. We will stay here again or sure. The view and the beautifully landscaped grounds alone were worth the trip. Thanks Matt for the wonderful experience!!!! You made our business trip a true mini weekend vacation.

Room Tip: There were many different types of rooms. They all had dferent looks and cute unique touches. From...
