The hotel is easily accessible from the highway with plenty of free parking. The room was large, clean, quiet and comfortable with a microwave and small refrigerator. Wifi was also free (and worked well) and I received a coupon for a complimentary breakfast and enjoyed the pancakes with bacon option. The service was good and I met the hotel's owner... More

Well we stopped here years ago and had a great visit, so I made a point to make this a stop since our visit years ago was so nice. This time, we got a room on the 3rd floor. You have to walk thru the smoking section and wow that makes you feel dizzy. Then to the elevator. Then when... More

My stay at this hotel was pleasant because the room was clean. Breakfast area was inviting; typical hotel breakfast. I couldn't get hooked up to the free wifi. So I just used my data. It may be frustrating if free wifi is important to you. Good for an overnight stay. Would stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay here at the Best Western Plus Waterville. There many amenities and the staff was friendly. The included breakfast at the attached restaurant was exceptional! It was right off the highway so easy to find.

We were disappointed in our service this time. We have stayed before and enjoyed our stay.I felt the staff were overwhelmed and they were understaffed or unprepared for the number of guests.The food is wonderful but the service is poor.

We stay at the Best Western Plus line of hotels for the cleanliness and presentation of the rooms and hotel. This hotel was run down with old carpets and dark bland interior decorating. Each of our beds had red/orange crusted stains on the top duvet cover and the room was dated and dirty. I went to give my 2 year... More

Me and my partner dropped in looking for a room, after a 2 day drive all the way from newfoundland. We came in looking for a room. To my surprise they had one. Room was very clean. Had free hot breakfast that was served very fast and tasted great. I would stay here again.
