Great boutique hotel
So many great things about this hotel! The location was very convenient, but parking sucked (street parking was only free overnight and the parking garage locked during certain nighttime hours, so there was a lot of shuffling of my car). I stayed in 209 the "Derry Maine" room. The decorations were absolutely amazing and I loved it (I'm a huge Stephen King fan). The room was clean and comfortable, but also it's an old hotel. Water pressure in the sink was a little weak, but great water pressure in the shower (great hot showers). The free WiFi is limited to a certain amount of data per day (which was kind of annoying), but so are the paid data plans. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of great dining options within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again. My only issues (other than the parking) was I didn't have a "do not disturb" sign for my door and when booking I wish there were more photos of the different themed rooms (there are quite a few great themed rooms). Both pretty petty complaints. What a great hotel!

Nice old hotel with very uncomfortable beds. Great location!

Very Good 8.0
Outdated and worn. Single chair, missing closet, luggage rack, telephone, stopper for sink. Gaps around a/c. Heater wouldn't turn off. However housekeeping did the best they could. Hotel staff super nice and accommodating. Wonderful location. Bus hub stop block away. Delightful restaurants. Amazing coffe shop in lobby. Quircky, fun, unique. I would stay there again. Looking forward to planned renovation.

Old but charming
A great location in the center of Bangor. The staff are incredibly friendly. The hotel is definitely worn down but overall fairly clean. The bathroom was cleaned nicely. I would still stay here again over the chain options far from the city. We loved walking to dinner and the art museum.

Good 6.0
The stay was OK. The couple running the place were great. They were very friendly and helpful. The place is old which I personally like but they do need to change the very old and stained carpet.

Basic accommodations
The hotel is basic. I appreciated that our room did not have carpet, but rather laminate or tile (not sure which). Our comforter was unacceptably dirty. We didn't notice until the next morning, as we got back late and went right to bed. I informed the front desk staff the next day, about the issue, in hopes it would be cleaner for the next guests. The sheets and towels appeared clean, however, both had holes in them. We paid less than $100 for the room, so what should I expect? We have, however, stayed in several hotels and inns for the same price and they were cleaner. The check in process was very slow. There is one front desk clerk and one computer. A concert that evening may have caused check in to be busier than usual.
