I had a conference to go to in Bangor but chose to stay here at my favorite place and drive the extra 50 minutes the next day. Have been staying here for years. If there is ever a problem they are always there to rectify it! Excellent overall!

if you have trouble with stairs, don't bother with this place. the reception area is down some stairs from ground level and then back up. I booked from an online site and when i checked in the couple in front of me was given a price $60 cheaper than mine. The hallways had clumps of dirt in main hallways when...

Thank you for staying with us and thanks for your review. It is through our guest comments that we improve for you and future guests.

After long days on the road, this place is a real treat right off the interstate.. Complimentary whoopie pies for everybody, clean room, good wifi, excellent channel selection on the TV, friendly folks. Big plus: Governor's Restaurant in the same building, open 6AM - 10 PM with recognizable, normal food at normal prices (no artisanal fol-de-rol at artisanal prices). Real...

Thank you for your compliments on one of our king executive rooms. It's not much more than a standard room, but the extras and the extra space make it so much more comfortable. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Sincerely, Barry Asalone

The Fireside Inn and Suites in Waterville, ME, is a medium sized older hotel that has failed to make the updates and improvements that today's travelers expect. The carpeting was gaudy, worn, and out-of-fashion, as was the wall paper. The woodwork was scarred and nicked. The staff at the "front desk" if you can call it that were not very...

We travel with our four dogs, so as you can imagine, finding accommodations is a major challenge. The Fireside Inn welcomed us and we were so comfortable and so happy with our stays. Unfortunately our stays were very short since they were just overnights en route to other locations. But the room was absolutely perfect for the dogs, and us...

Thank you for your review, and thank you for mentioning our pet-friendly rooms. We have just one with the wood floors right now, but we are planning on expanding that in the future. It seems to work better for our four-legged guests. We look forward to seeing you all again. Sincerely, Barry Asalone

Stayed here for a convention and found this hotel very comfortable and quiet. There is a Continental breakfast served in the lobby,plus there is a good restaurant attached to the hotel. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. It's also a good place to stay if you have chi, judging from the amount of families I saw staying here.
