Presque Isle Inn & Convention Center

Reviewed 15 August 2011

Hotel was under renovation, however, they obviously hadn't gotten to our room. It was tired and worn with only fair quality linens and towels. The room was very clean and I can only hope they will be upgrading soon. The front desk, cleaning and restaurant staff were fantastic. Very polite and delightfully friendly. They made us feel comfortable and welcome. We were there for a banquet and I have to say it was great! Fish, prime rib, mashed potatoes - everything cooked to perfection. Breakfast was very good as well. So, the room was not great, however, everything else was! If you chose to stay, take the room with a grain of salt and enjoy the hospitality of the people.

My wife and I stayed here on our way back from a vacation in Southern Maine. We live in northeastern NB and we used to visit Preque Isle on a regular basis. This motel had always been our place of choice, but in recent years we decided to go to Bangor, mainly because this motel had fallen into a state of disrepair. This visit was a last minute decision and we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The new owner has done a wonderful job of restoring this motel. The rooms are completely modernized and the dining room is glorious The pool has been brought back to it's former glory. We didn't have a chance to get to use the gym area, but we will certainly be going back with the intention of using it.The staff were as freindly as one would expect from norhtern New England, and the owner can be justifiably proud of them. This fine restoration has given a reason to want to start visiting Presque Isle again.

I found the staff there very personable, and freindly.. The rooms that i had reserved were clean and comfortable,,The dining area was clean the food was hot . I had stayed at other motels in the area they might be new and clean however Presque Isle Inn & convention Center went above and beyond my expectations. And I wil go back there again and again.. You are not staying in a Motel ~it feels like you are in your own home!

I have shared your review with the hotel staff. It is not very often “the Staff” get enough thanks, I thank you for this. It is my goal to give my customers first class comfortable accommodations at rates below our competition. Yes, we may not be the newest, but we definitely keep our guests in mind by providing a friendly staff, Good food and as you say, “A place that feels like home” The Presque isle Inn is a true Aroostook County land mark providing true customer service and satisfaction the county way
We hope you will travel our way again soon.
Safe travels

What this place has going for it is the friendly "mom and pop" feel of its service all day long. Also, it is cheaper than the Hampton Inn, which is also in town. Lastly, this place has one of the best restaurants (if not the best) in town. This place even arranged for a special-order 3-pound lobster to be brought in and cooked at the restaurant for me...just ask for it ahead of time and done. Dinner was an awesome experience. The wifi was free and fast enough. At night it was quiet, which allowed for good sleep. Overall a good experience.

We stayed at the Presue IIsle inn for three nights. The room was clean, the beds very comfortable and we received friendly service. The restaurant on site offers Italian Cusine, and the food was excellent! Loved the Veal Chop Special and their pasta dishes. We also enjoyed their breakfast and the fact that the hotel offers a discount for the guests at the restaurant. Great gym too, we used the treadmills and some of the weights. Overall a great hotel, we will go back!

After visiting family for Christmas, could not fly out of Presque Isle Maine for a few days, so we extended our stay here. The first room we had (#247) was 2 dbl beds (not the most comfortable mattress). For the next 3 days, we moved into a room with a king bed (#248), which was very comfortable. Front desk staff was always professional and courteouse; Nick was especially helpful. We were given a fridge and microwave for the room (Nick waived the normal charges to make our stay more comfortable). Hotel was clean, quiet. Morning coffee in lobby; room coffee replenished as often as we liked. Ate at Gram Russo's for dinner (delicious, and 10% off for hotel guests). Good-sized fitness center with a few tread mills, stationary bikes, weight machines, 2 color tvs with cable. Sefl-service laundry facility. Over all, pleasant experience.

Stayed here Monday, September 27, 2010 while on business. Hotel is very clean & comfortable. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food was excellent, both dinner and breakfast. Beautiful view from the dining room, foliage was almost at peak. Plan to stay here again the next time I am in Aroostook County on business..
