We drove into town late at night and everything was booked out. Lucky one of the hotels recommended the Surry Inn. We weren’t expecting much given that it was so late and everything was taken. However we really did stumble into a little gem. Our hosts were delightful and very informative. We had a wonderful night sleep and in the...

Such a disappointment... We booked 2 nights at the Surry Inn in August to attend a wedding in Blue Hill and ended up leaving after the 1st night. I should have known it was fishy when she wanted a personal or bank check mailed as a Deposit vs. giving a credit card over the phone or online. As we drove...

The two people running this inn are nice, but just don't seem to care about the condition of the place. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls and there are rust spots on most of the baseboard heating ducts. The bathroom door of my room was rotting and flaking off along the bottom, the towel rack had broken off and...

I’m not too picky about hotels, as long as they’re relatively clean and bug-free. We read some of the reviews on here, and I thought perhaps the people criticizing the Inn were expecting some fancy 5-star hotel and they were just being overly critical. One of our friends decided not to stay based on the negative reviews and I thought...

I saw all the negative reviews after sending in a deposit for staying during a friends wedding. I hoped others were just picky, but sadly that was not the case. My party booked 4 rooms and they all had issues. One room had a door that wouldn't close, in another the bathroom door was rotting and the room was filled...

First, any review here that says it’s a nice place must be off their rocker, this placed hasn’t seen a lick of maintenance in the past 30 years. The only positive is the location, no doubt about it, it’s amazing… I stayed at The Surry Inn for two nights recently for a wedding with my girlfriend and a bunch of...

My partner and I recently returned from two nights at The Surry Inn. We truly enjoyed it! The setting was great and our hosts so accommodating, friendly, humble yet refined. We did not mind that the rooms lacked TVs and such. Our room was beautiful yet simple. THE DINNER WE HAD AT THE INN WAS FANTASTIC! We should have eaten...

My partner and I stayed at the Inn recently this past weekend, and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. If you want all the amenities, forgettable frills, and conveniences to be found at a standard motel or from staying at home this is not the place for you! But if you want to stay with a place...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Surry Inn, settled overlooking a quiet bay in rural Surry, Maine just minutes from Ellsworth. The inn provides the relaxed comfort of a traditional Maine inn. The room we had was spacious, very clean, and nicely furnished with antique furniture typical of the period architecture of a mid-nineteenth century farmstead We looked out...

“No rooms are good, bathrooms with no window or fan for ventilation, mildew smells, scalding dripping hot water that you cannot adjust, to ONE plug behind the bed so if you want to dry your hair you move the bed and then unplug a lamp. There is much more I could write but now I am going to forget about my horrific time there, and thankfully I was rescued by a wonderful local who gave me their summer home to stay in..”
