I stayed to assist loved ones in the hospital but wouldn't stay again. Room was clean, had a working refrigerator but bed was uncomfortable. Staff looked unhappy and even when they spoke they sounded like this was just a job not expressing any interest in their guests. No smiles. No idle conversation. I never felt so unwelcomed at a hotel...

My wife had minor surgery but we needed to spend the night in Bangor. This is old Inn facility but it is very pleasant and convenient. It is very nice to have this available. You can walk through a long corridor directly to the hospital. The corridor is very old and unkempt through old buildings of the hospital but I...

Worst stay ever! 6 of us had 3 rooms. All old and in need of a lot of updates. Lost power at just after midnight. It was out for about 12 hours. No heat, no hot water. No TV, no elevator. No apologies. No breakfast. No sleep due to snow plows running all night. Would not have stayed there but...

This is wonderful for those with medical needs@ EMMC the staff are polite and helpful. I'd stay here again in a heart beat! Hotel itself is old, however my room was clean and well furnished, fridge, coffee, alarm clock and the king size bed was comfy. No complaints here, great value and very helpful.

The place is convenient if you have someone at the hospital. However, it is dark and gloomy. They have had the same bedspreads since 2002. The wallpaper is peeling, the ceilings are stained. It is just dark and dreary. For $89 a night you'd expect a little better. Being in a hospital environment all day, you would hope the place...

The lobby is small, outdated and depressing. The staff is not very helpful. The room was small and outdated but more importantly, it was poorly cleaned and maintained. The paint and wallpaper was peeling, the finish on the furniture was peeling or worn off... The continental breakfast was pretty sad. But there were some positives. The hotel is right next...

We had wanted to stay nearer Bar Harbor in high season but left a booking until too late & found ourselves here. The door was locked but we were admitted & the room & en-suite were fine. Breakfast was a "help yourself" but had adequate variety. An ideal location if you want to visit the eastern Maine Medical Centre, or...

This hotel gives a steep discount to patients and families of patients using EMMC. It's a bit of a drive to the mall and restaurants if you're considering staying here for shopping purposes. The hotel is clean although it is an old property and there isn't much luxury. You can rent a microwave and refrigerator for an extra fee if...
