What an amazing place to stay. The staff were beyond friendly and kind. My brother and I went to tend to my Fathers death and they made our trip less stressful. They offered free tea and coffee all day and breakfast in the morning

My husband, teenage son and myself spent 5 nights at the Hotel on Pownal. I researched a lot of hotels before I picked this one and we weren't disappointed! The deciding factor was the weekly evening "meet and greet" with free wine and local beer. We were able to partake of it 2 times and really enjoyed it. We met...

My first time staying here. I would give it an average rating. I only stayed here because of a discount I found on line. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again if found another good deal but otherwise I will go elsewhere

this hotel was a very nice place to stay for business or a vacation.

We live on the Island and bought a night's stay at the Hotel on Pownal in a benefit Silent Auction. The lobby impressed us from the get go...beautifully, and comfortably decorated.

I found hair in the shower. I understand it may be difficult to get hair out but finding hair anywhere is the worst possible thing for me.. The staff were great but nothing can take away the hair that i found.

Our organization had a meeting for around 40 people. The rooms were great and convenient for our meeting. The meeting rooms located across from each other allowed us to meet in one room and eat in the opposite one. The staff did all they could to accommodate us. The continental breakfast was ok but not as good as some others...
