Great location, free breakfast with good coffee, free wifi and excellent customer service! We had requested a quiet, corner room on the top floor and that's exactly what we had! When we arrived and were settling in, we heard some construction going on outside; this was late afternoon however wanting a nap before dinner, that would have been out of the question with hammering going on. We called the front desk and Dennis said he had no idea there was any construction but he'd go over and find out. And he walked right over and came back to report that the worker would be stopping soon to go pick up his son. Problem solved. We found out later that Dennis is the hotel manager so we felt we received some extra special attention there.
We would return to this hotel in a heartbeat. One suggestion for any late sleepers; during this time of the year (late June) the sun rises before 5:00am and it came streaming in our windows (there are blinds but no blackout curtains) and was so bright we thought we'd over-slept. On the good side of this, being up so early got us out of the hotel earlier so we drove in to Acadia to find gorgeous morning light for photos plus no one else on the Park Loop Rd but us!
