We thoroughly enjoyed the Samoset! We had a beautiful ocean view room on the 6th tee of the lovely golf course. The restaurant was great and the staff was very accommodating. We will definitely return!

From the minute you arrive, throughout your stay, and when you check-out you will meet the most friendly hotel staff that you may ever encounter. They're pretty remarkable, but so is the Samoset Resort generally. Just a short drive away from downtown Rockland, with all of its fine restaurants, shops and museums and galleries, the Samoset is an oasis of...

We liked this place so much we came back after 10 years. This time around, though, there was lots of noise and small children both in the hotel and at the pool. We noticed that they now are also a "Time Share" hotel, so maybe that's why. So if you're coming here for peace and quiet during the summer months,...

Dear llmiii, Thank you for review of the Samoset. It sounds like you had a lovely girls getaway with wonderful food, great company with a friend, and time to explore Rockland and Camden during your stay.

The Samoset inn is a beautiful resort with professional and welcoming staff. Upon check in our room was on 1st floor right next to the pool with no privacy. We asked to be relocated and were very pleased with the positive response. We were very happy with our room. A great place to enjoy morning coffee is on the patio...
