Location, Location, Location

Right in the middle of downtown Bangor, this in is steps away from restaurants, coffee shops, bars and shopping, which was a huge plus for people staying here. There are number of points of interest that are a short walking distance from the property such as the Maine Discovery Museum and more.

Cool Themed Rooms

Travellers who stayed in the themed rooms liked the details and quirkiness of the experience. People who stay in the King Suite and Logging Room liked the uniqueness of their accommodations.

Negative Reviews

In Need of an Update

Many people couldn't help but notice that the rooms they stayed in are in need of some TLC. Things that stood out include shabby furniture and problematic air-conditioning. Others felt their space was tired and worn out.

Parking Situation Not Ideal

While there is parking on the street in front of the inn, it is only for a limited amount of time. The closest parking garage is down the block which isn't ideal for travellers with lots of luggage.

Basics Missing

There have been instances when guests found that their room was missing basic amenities such as extra pillows and blankets, and the Wi-Fi code. Others commented that their room did not actually have cable TV and the channels that did appear were fuzzy.
