The views were magnificent but the hotel needs a facelift. Very, very, very neglected hotel. We stayed on first floor needs brand new flooring and carpeting new fixtures, etc.. our view when standing outside was great except for the 4 guys literally sitting at the picnic table

I always say that "Guest perception is 100%". I'm sorry that you were so disappointed with some of the decisions we have made here. Like you, I would love to have the appearance of a sweeping lawn leading down to the water uninterrupted by smoker's outposts. We tried that only to have our back lawn used as an ashtray, leading to unsightly white and beige butts on a green lawn. We have found that when we supply a place for butts, responsible smokers will not litter our lawns and harm the environment. The black mats that you describe are a way of protecting the pool roof and protecting the environment at the same time. They are made of recycled tires, taking them out of the landfill, and given a proper use for them for the next 20- 40 years. We tried umbrellas on the deck only to find that the wind off the water was often too brisk and they would overturn the tables or simply destroy themselves in the wind. We didn't want to see anyone get hurt, so we removed them. The decisions we have made over the years were not without thought. I'm sorry they made your stay less enjoyable. I'm glad that you found our staff pleasant. Should you choose to stay with us again, I may suggest a 2nd or 3rd floor room where the smoker's outposts are not in your direct field of vision. Sincerely, Barry Asalone

The Fireside In & Suites is all you can expect a motel to be. AND a wonderful view of the bay is included. The bathroom was clean and included a huge, wall-to-wall counter. The hot water is almost instantaneous. A hot breakfast is also inluded, and it is tastier than any

Thanks for your review. I love what you said: "And who doesn't love a balcony with a view! Imagine sitting on your balcony with a cup of coffee, admiring the Belfast Bay, as you start your day." I'm glad that you like the clean rooms, the view and the food. We hope to see you again for another refresher. Sincerely, Barry Asalone

We had a room with the view of the water which was lovely. I found the room to be fairly clean but very worn out and outdated. The bathroom is definitely in need of renovations. The carpet in the elevator smells awful. I expect it's due to mold. Breakfast is very simple with

Thank you for your review. I'm happy to read that you enjoyed the view and the cleanliness of the room. In hot, humid weather, we do get an odor from the elevator. It's not in the carpet, as we have replaced the carpet. Fortunately, hot and humid weather in Maine is short-lived as is the odor. The pool chemicals are checked and adjusted daily and overseen by a Certified Pool Operator.

Gotta love this view
It was a dream waking up so peacefully with the sunrise and getting to look over the ocean every morning.
I sat in these chairs nearly every day.
On the second and third floors, we have decks. The decks are divided by a low wall, therefore, your neighbor could not easily walk on your deck, but you can see each other. The first floor has a continuous patio from one end of the building to the other, and leading our on to a very large lawn sloping down to the water.

Pets are permitted on the first floor only. Each of these rooms has a patio which open to our ten acres leading to the water. We are permitting smoking on the patios and decks until June 1, and then smoking will be 20' from the building. There is a $20 plus tax per day pet fee.

Hi, We have some kings that have a fireplace and a reclining massage chair. We do not have any rooms with just a regular recliner. Sorry. Sincerely, Barry
