4 minutes to university of Maine.

Pleasant staff. No restaurant on site but quite a few nearby.

A bit outdated but staff was friendly and good price for a place to crash

Great breakfast!

We will stay again. A little dated but that is ok, as the environment offers that Maine cabin feel. A short drive to Bangor and a hidden gem for sure!!!

Didn’t care for the outside light shining inside the room all night. Curtains were very thin which didn’t block much light.

Excellent. Have stayed before. Inn was packed due to UMaine move in days, but still felt like staff was focused on us. Will stay again.

They accommodated early check in & later check out without hesitation. We were in town for my Mom’s funeral services.

Really nice place for the money. Clean, friendly staff, and nice rooms. Breakfast ok but not great. Standard stuff. I stay here every year I come through for business. Definitely recommend.

Quiet and cozy with nice touches like wine and cheese in the evening. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean though a little worn in places.

Family friendly , clean, and they had a nice continental breakfast.

It was a nice quiet place in a location that had a lot to offer. Hotel was comfortable and friendly staff.

Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good

Nice place. Very much in line with a place that’s easy to stay at for a night. They had fun with the bear theme and decorated well.

The staff was pleasant, the room was clean, but worn.

All of the black bears , the homemade food was delicious
