We stayed at the Inn in 2014 and again 2017. The Inn at Poland Springs is an OLD established Hotel/Resort. Golf and the rest of Maine is its drawing points. It has a large swimming pool (no life guard), Golf Course,Dinning Room for Breakfast and Dinner, and Entertainment everynight from 8:00 to 10:00, Snack Bar near the Pool and Golf Proshop, the Inn has light snacks available including coffee and icecream sundays. There is a Bar right off the Inn's lounge and has a $2.50 Special cocktail every night. The rooms, hallways, etc are tired and look tired. Attempts to brighten up were just a makeup coverup. A lot of larger items like free wireless access and color TV have been added; (no room telephones) but the rooms' door locks and older style bathrooms leave something to be desired.
all said its hard to beat the price for the value your getting.
The immediate area has lots of history starting with the Inn itself. the Inn has a library and there are many pictures and the Cindy (owner) is a wealth of knowledge of the history. Then you can always just sit on the grand front porch, in a rocking chair, read and relax the entire stay. We went with two other couples, which gave us a social group to interact with and share actives with. Everyone is as polite as can be and often thought I was in "Mayberry" and waiting for Aunt Bee to ask if I wanted a cookie.
Some might want a night club in hotel that blasts till two am but after 10pm alls quite.

Dear Roger A,

Thank you for your review of our historic Poland Spring Resort. There has been a hotel on our property for over 200 years! In 2013 we became listed on the National Register of Historic Places which we can not be more proud of. There are so many activities to do on our property and our location is perfect for taking day trips for anyone seeking other things to do such as visit the ocean, go gambling at the Oxford Casino, visit the many antique shops along Route 26 etc. Thank you for the nice comment about our staff, we hire the most friendly people around! Hope you'll visit again soon.

Sincerely,
Laura

Loved the new furniture in the rooms and new flat screen televisions plus the mini refrigerators. Always have a great time when we stay. Everyone was very happy with their stay. The golf course is always in excellent condition. All the employees are always friendly and helpful. Can't wait until next year.

Definitely a family-friendly place. Our family of three (we have a toddler) stayed here over a long weekend. Keep in mind that there are three places to choose from when booking here: The Lodge, Presidential Inn, and Maine Inn. The grounds are beautiful, especially the golf course, and this makes for many good pictures. Our first night was spent at The Lodge, however, our toddler had a hard time sleeping that night due to the sound of cars driving by on ME-26. Thankfully, we were able to switch to the Maine Inn the following morning after speaking to the staff. Staff was friendly and our room at the Maine Inn was great. The buffet breakfast was good. Lots of family-friendly places to visit and include Maine Wildlife Park, Rage Pond State Park, Pineland Farms, and the Shaker Village.

Room Tip: Book a room at the Maine Inn for a quiet night's sleep

Dear ThisFamilyofThree,

Thank you for your review! I am glad we were able to accommodate you switching to the Maine Inn. The Maine Inn is furthest off the main road and you hardly ever hear road noise from that building. I'm glad you got to enjoy so many places nearby! Poland Spring sure is a perfect place to stay and take day trips from here! Hope to see you again!

Sincerely,
Laura

This is year 32 for us at Poland Springs. This trip we rented the Beach House and brought another couple. It is a nice very roomy house with a dock on Middle Range Pond. It is a very large pond well over 300 acres and it attaches to Upper Range Pond (slightly larger) via a culvert large enough to take my pontoon boat through. It was an absolutely wonderful weekend. Fishing was very good. We caught many 1-2 lbs Large Mouth Bass and Small Mouths as well. Have to say the Smallies were awesome fighters.
The accommodations were modest but extremely comfortable. The weekend package includes dinner Friday, breakfast and dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday. You won't find a better option anywhere.
It is more known for the beautiful golf course. It is an 18 hole Donald Ross design. The views and play are exceptional.
The Staff is very friendly and most always smiling. They make you feel welcome and like a family member.

Dear Lance J,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I am so glad you've enjoyed Poland Spring for over 30 years! The Beach House is one of my favorite cottages on the property and the setting on Middle Range couldn't be any better! I'm happy to hear that the fishing was good this weekend! We will see you next year!

We have been coming here for 15 years, and enjoy it very much. The beat thing is that it doesn't change year to year. The food it good and plentiful, and the staff is very good. We added a side trip on the way home to Portland. That place is very active when compared to just a few tears ago.
