Hotel was very clean, beds very comfortable and every staff member was smiling and helpful. Free appetizer given for in-house dining; no kids menu. Good food, upscale touches, nice decor. Beautiful hotel lobby, small but classy. Stayed in a second-floor suite for one night. French doors separated living area with pull out couch from bedroom- curtains on door are on...

My son plays football for Bowdoin College and we wanted a place to stay for the entire fall season…happy to say we found it at The Daniel.

I stopped here for the night on my way up the Maine coast. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and felt very much at home. The hotel is simply, but elegantly decorated, and our budget room was beautifully presented with features above it's price point. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast buffet was decent, and staff were very...

Had stayed here a few years ago and I must say it was decent then and only improved over the years. The continental breakfast was well put together, the coffee was excellently brewed and seems like it must have passed a taste test, juice was fresh and the muffins and granola great too. Room improvements included extra plugs at each...

It's a beautiful setting inside and out. Extremely kind people and staff. Room and bed very comfortable and extremely clean. Enjoyed our stay and rest. My only drawback was the hotel kind of shut down at dark. There is a nice bar. We did not eat there. We like to enjoy our evenings and you have to leave the grounds...

Every employee we encountered was friendly and over-the-top ready to help us with anything and everything. Rose wouldn't just tell my husband where the ice machine was; she escorted him to it and later refused any tip. Blake and Chelsea worked the wedding we attended. They became like friends. Blake withstood some good-natured teasing and even agreed to dance with...

The Daniel is a great place to stay and its not one of the big guys. The rooms are very nice and staff is great. We found this small hotel a couple of years ago and its still fantastic. The food was also very good and were not one for eating at hotels.
