I have to say first and foremost how helpful the staff here was. We were moving my mother-in-law from her home of 50 years in Maine to a new place near us in Connecticut and they were so accommodating to help make her stay at the Inn comfortable. The staff were so friendly and helpful and we're able to give...

This inn is nicer on the inside than it appears from the road. We stayed in room 345, and while not fancy, it was spacious, beds were comfortable with a variety of pillows, and the TV was large. It was equipped with iron, blow dryer, refrigerator, microwave & keurig. Bottles of water were stocked daily and available for $1/ea. The...

Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you found the inside far better than the outside. We're continuing to improve the interior, so the contrast will be more stark. We are doing carpet and paint to half the hotel this year, and to the remainder the...

The room was excellent. Very clean and large. The breakfast was very good with lots of things to cook and very good coffee. One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed at. Governer's Restaurant is next door and I would not go there. We sat there after be seated for 20 min.and no service at all. We walked out.

Although the lobby is well used and a bit dated, that is well compensated by a cheerful accommodating staff and excellent housekeeping staff. Many of the rooms have been updated and they are in the process of completely redoing one of the wings. They have been working hard to compete with national chains, so you have plenty of amenities, a...

We're taking out wallpaper, carpet, and all the furniture and lighting and replacing it with new. In the other wing, we are replacing furniture. We have new WIFI equipment going in that should...

Although the Fireside Inn appears modest, it is clean, comfortable and light on the wallet. It is located close to I-95 and it is approximately 1.25 hours from Sugarloaf where we ski. For an overnight stay, you cannot beat the price and location.

My husband and I traveled to the Waterville area recently for a family funeral. We booked a king room with a gas fireplace. The room was large, the bed quite comfortable, and the gas fireplace provided warmth and ambiance during a blizzard that raged outside. The front desk staff was very friendly and courteous.
