We stay here with our dog nearly every time we come home to visit family. We love that we can have a large dog without any issue, and the staff are always very friendly. We also like the food in the restaurant/bar, and it's very convenient to have this available in house.

Nice hotel located right across the street from Bowdoin College. Comfy beds and clean rooms. Wifi painfully slow compared to other properties. Noble Restaurant offers delicious food and cocktails. Nice chairs and fireplace in lobby warms the cold outside.

Perfect location for walking to Bowdoinm, train and shopping. Room was spacious and comfortable. Fireplace in the lobby was a lovely way to end the day. Noble, the restaurant, had terrific and innovative food with a good range of options and prices.

We were part of a tour group staying at this hotel. The only thing that stands out is the horrible breakfast. I can't remember anything else about this hotel other than the cold eggs and lack of breakfast items.

We stayed here as part of a tour of New England. Friendly staff, particularly in the bar, and pleasant, very clean room which was however rather bland. Bright, clean bathroom. All going well until we went for breakfast, where we encountered grumpy waiting staff, and a poor buffet which included the worst (and cold) scrambled eggs ever. Most of our tour were similarly unimpressed to the extent that our tour guide stopped our bus an hour after leaving the hotel in order to buy us donuts and juice! Says it all! Tip for hotel - if you want the business from a high-end tour company please try to put on an edible breakfast and hire pleasant staff to serve it. Read less
