    The Charles Inn is a great hotel located in downtown Bangor. Our room was so unique! We were put in the Steven King room with everything Steven King themed inside. It was a great surprise! The staff is amazing. Beside the hotel is a coffee shop on one side and a restaurant on the other. It was a beautiful day so we were able to sit outside and sip our coffee and drinks, then we had a great meal while enjoying the last day of our road trip. I highly recommend The Charles Inn!

    I have an adjoins room so me and my friend stayed here for a few days . Lots of hot water it's located smack dab in the middle of everything and it's a very old historic hotel. I enjoyed my stay

    Make your reservation

    The staff are friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in an excellent downtown location, steps away from Paddy Murphy's and Blaze for food and drinks with outdoor seating. It is an older hotel, not a franchise, but that is part of the appeal, and while it is a bit worn, it is clean. We felt safe and happy staying there and would recommend it to travelers who are looking for a fun, chic place to stay in Bangor. Themed rooms add to the enjoyment of staying somewhere unique.

  • 6.0.Good

    Good downtown location, lots of restaurants. Interesting historical building. Good hot water for showers. NO hotel parking. Limited free parking on city streets around the hotel between 6PM and 8AM. We parked at a parking garage about 1/4 mile away. Heating/cooling units in the rooms are old and do not work well. The controls were unreliable. Bedsheets were thin and badly stained. Staff was friendly and helpful. The price was good, but we would not stay here again.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    This hotel is centrally located in downtown. Walk to all the restaurants. It has several themed rooms, I could have done without staying in the Mostly Ghostly room. If you don't like the thought of two glass cases with dolls being present in your room, definitely opt out of it. They are covered with curtains unless you choose to expose them, so....The staff was pleasant. Jeremiah was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The hotel was fairly quiet, and clean.
