The Inn is high on the hill; giving wonderful views of Frenchman's Bay. Our room on the 3rd level was served by an elevator. The room was quite comfortable with the amenities one expects from an Inn with a spa. Special shampoo/conditioner/facial bar/lotion/shower cap and more. In room coffee was good. Hair dryer & iron in each room. The main...

We really enjoyed staying here at the end of the summer. I had requested a room with a view and boy did I get one! I recommend the restaurant here as well which offers a wonderful cocktail hour (awesome drinks) and a pit fire with again, the views of the ocean from way up on top of the hill. We...

Beautiful views from our balcony. Very nicely presented room and extremely comfortable beds. One of the few North American hotels we stayed in that has a hair dryer that actually dries your hair. Breakfast and dinner is served in the Looking Glass Restaurant located a short walk to the top of the hill. Staff do provide 'golf cart' rides for...

Ideal location, two min from the "downtown" area. Our fourth floor room facing the harbor had spectacular views. We also lucked out with amazing weather. The hotel is clean and our room was very spacious. It was quiet during our stay there (first week of Sept). The restaurant on the premises has an even better view. Excellent dinner and breakfast....

I thought this was a quaint hotel which was a great location closed to the town and Acadia. Hotel was clean and service was good. I generally don't stay in motel type places but this one was nice. The decor sort of reminded me of the Homestead style traditional furnishings rather than a more modern feel. The bathroom was very...
