My husband and I have stayed here three times while skiing Sunday River over the years. We most recently stayed here in early January and learned upon check-in that the property had just been sold. It is not the best place to stay, but if you're looking for simple accommodations close to the mountain, it's a great deal. The place...

My room was very comfortable, plenty of power available for the laptop, phone, and other devices, and fast WiFi. Great homemade breakfast - no continental here! Bed and pillows were very comfortable. TV was not HD but OK. Staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful.

Three NSP Patrollers booked a room with two full beds. The clerk immediately recognized that three beds would be preferred and placed us in a comfortable room with three beds. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We needed breakfast at 7 AM and were able to pre-order it so that it was ready exactly on time. Perfect for skiers...

Classic motel; quite small room but clean and comfortable. Good wifi but no tea/coffee making facility in the room, no hair drier, antique TV with a poor picture and the traffic noise from the main road was often audible. Limited but nice breakfast.

We were here for about 5 day for our trip to Sunday River. It is a bit away but not that far even if you are taking the shuttle. Good Central location between town and Sunday River. Near many places to eat. Proprietors were really friendly and their breakfast was really good and affordable. The rooms are very good. Not...

Overpriced dump. Teenie Room with lumpy bed, the smallest thinnest towels I've ever seen, mold in bathroom, an old box t.v. And rude woman at front desk who laughed at me when I asked about breakfast. Happy birthday to me! Not sure how they stay in business!

We were on our way home from Lubec taking scenic back roads and needed to stop for the night. Came across The Inn at the Rostay - and so delighted we decided to stop. The office in the large farmhouse was very welcoming and showed a lot of "country charm". When I commented about the adorable bears on the front...

We visited in August for an impromptu weekend away from home. It was not really expensive, so my expectations weren't terribly high, but at the end of the day I really didn't enjoy my stay. he rooms in general were about one step up from something like Motel 6, but the room we had was clean and neat, if basic,...

I went to The Rostay Inn with my mom dad and brother to see the fireworks. It was all really good the prices are nothing I stayed in the deluxe hotel and it was like 100.00 a night. But the pool is a little dirty. My favorite part is how you can rent a movie. I would go to Rostay...

We stayed here at the end of a very busy vacation. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable and covered with a hand made quilt. Each room has a theme and ours was, I think, Americana. Quilt was red, white and blue. There is a quilt store that is part of the motel and based on feedback from...
