TV from the 90s. No channels. Dirty stained carpets, musty smelling and bedspreads are used over and over with no washing. No hair dryer provided. Free Breakfast very minimal. Laundry on site only good aspect.

Stayed two nights while touring Cabot Trail in July 2016. Property was clean, albeit old. Beds were adequate. Hot water temp control was a bit spotty, but overall was a good night's sleep. Continental Breakfast was quite basic but again adequate. Owner seems involved and seems to want to make it better. Wi-Fi was present, but super slow.

We got there late one night and were able to secure a room - best part of experience. The room was in a building separated from main hotel, much like a college dormitory. The room was clean enough, bed marginally comfortable. The air conditioner sounded like a diesel engine and the room fridge did not appear to work. The breakfast...

As most have mentioned, the hotel needs updating but the new owners are very eager to make your stay a pleasant one. There are lots of complaints about the breakfast but it is listed as a Continental breakfast and that is what you get. A few cereals, oatmeal, toast, bagels and muffins, about average for places that offer Continental and...

New owners are super nice and the place is still a good value, but having stayed here many times in the past, I'm very disappointed in the "breakfast". Gone are the locally made oat cakes, the cheese plates, and fresh mixed fruit bowl, gone are the pots of brewed tea. Everything replaced with the cheapest substitutes. The real ceramic plates...

Our first room was visibly spotless, but the carpet had a strong musty odor. Clearly, someone had left the window open and it rained. I asked for another room, and the owner was very pleasant. The second had the same problem, the third had only one bed, but the fourth room was perfect. The owner mentioned he'd only had the...
