If you are looking for a Marriott-cookie-cutter-type experience, then you probably won't like The Charles Inn. However, if you're up for a quaint hotel in an old historical building, in the heart of downtown, this is the place for you. We spent a night in...More

Fantastic review, thank you! You really touched on a lot of the main points that makes us a unique and one-of-a-kind place to stay in downtown Bangor! We hope you are able to visit us again in the future. :)

This place is right downtown and it's very loud. If the room faces the street, there is a bar/restaurant next door with outdoor seating and the people are out there late. Our room faced the back parking lot where there was lots of drunk yelling...More

I apologize that you were not able to get a good nights sleep during your stay. Since we are downtown, that does play a part in the noises we experience from outside. Perhaps, next time your in the area we can offer you a quieter...More

Looking for a cookie cutter, average, La Quinta-type hotel stay? This isn't what you're looking for. The Charles has so much more character than that, but you have to realize that you're staying in a building that is 140+ years old! We paid a little...More

Yes it is. We walked to the Pavillion for a concert and is only maybe 10-15 minute walk...uphill. Not a hard walk though.
