    I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in they had upgraded my room from an inside room to the Parlor on the 4th floor with a view of the street below.

    Hotel is a quirky fun place to stay in downtown. Very clean. We had no hot water in AM and our room 103 had a window air conditioner above a smoker for the restaurant below which wasn’t the best.

    We LOVED the Charles Inn! It's beautiful, and in an EXCELLENT location! Though we had trouble with the AC Unit, they were quick to rectify it, and very nice about it. It's a wonderful old Hotel with a FABULOUS coffee shop attached. The themed rooms are so charming, and the dining around the hotel is divine. Don't miss this one! It's fabulous!!!

  • 2.0.Poor

    No parking. We had to move the car before 8:00 AM to the parking garage. Prostitutes running toward the car at every corner. They have a few decent antique pieces in the common areas, but the room was not acceptable. The floor was slanted so the head of the bed was lower than the foot. No mattress pad on the cheapest mattress maid. Pillows were like a stack of newspapers. Holes in the goodwill comforter. Sink wouldn’t drain and the faucet was about to fall off. The shower floor bounced a good inch or more. It was a pig with a ton of lipstick. Overpriced by a good $100.

    Truly unique historical building with charming themed rooms. It was very comfortable. In the middle of downtown Bangor shops and restaurants. Street parking was easily avaliable.

    The Inn itself is old but quaint. It’s location however was the best selling point. I’m sure we could have stayed in a much more updated hotel but the location was perfect for us.
