Did not stay here, but their sandwich board attracted us to what turned out to be one of the best happy hour offerings we have ever enjoyed. We shall return for their asparagus fries, avocado toast with smoked salmon, and other tasty tapas. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel. Great location with free parking. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Excellent location in center of town. Only one minor complaint - no mini fridge in the room. Ate 3 nights at the Tavern. Food was good and service was pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.

Best things about this hotel are the location, convenient to Bowdoin and downtown, and the restaurant/bar. Rooms give a strong positive initial impression until you realize that corners were cut (no towel bars in bathroom, no hairdryer, cheap noisy air conditioner). Our room had noise from the patio outside and from the dog in the room next door (poor doggie appears to have been left alone for some hours.) Overall, this is a good choice if you want the convenience of the location.

Dear ColoTraveler2001,

You are correct, when it comes to convenience and location to the downtown and to Bowdoin we cannot be beat. We are literally steps away from both and just a short drive to Freeport and to Portland.. I am sorry to hear of the noise you encountered during your stay, the front desk staff is always wiling to find a solution to either stop the noise or assure you are in a quieter location. Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you back with us soon.

Best regards

We stayed at this hotel on a trek through Maine - the rooms were clean, the halls were quiet, and they even have a nice lounge/common room area. It was nothing spectacular, but it was acceptable.
But let’s talk about the breakfast in the Tavern. With your stay, you receive 10% off breakfast coupons - and thank goodness. This meal was subpar at its best. It took over 20 minutes to get a sad plate with what seemed to be prefab homefries and a incorrectly cooked egg.
The ONLY thing that made this breakfast experience worth it - was our waitress, Philomina. She had us feeling welcome, provided us with laughter, and even went out of her way to give us spots to visit while we go to Portland. The hotel - decent without a wow factor; the food - not so much; the waitress - hell yes.

Dear nikidee,

Thank you for staying with us during your trek through Maine. We are glad you found the hotel to be clean and quiet and enjoyed our living room. The living room is a great place to relax in the winter while the fireplace is on, and during the warmer months; we have an excellent outdoor patio and front porch to enjoy a meal or a drink.. We are sorry you did not enjoy your breakfast, and I will share your feedback with the staff. I am however glad to hear that Philomina made you feel welcome and provided what sounds like a memorable experience.

Best regards
