Just stayed at this hotel and it was horrendous. Carpets stained, flies in light fittings, bath/sink water was brown, plastic cutlery to eat with (cant we be trusted wth proper cutlery), filler in the room walls, furniture seen better days. Never took shoes off, carpets were absolutely filthy. Worse place I have ever stayed. Horrendous.

Hotel's Favourite
The golf school was a wonderful experience. Dave, the instructor, was very patient teaching this novice golfer and improving my game. Our room (suite) was great and the AC was definitely able to keep our room chilly. The food at the Tavern was wonderful! The outdoor pool area is great as well as the golf course too. The hotel is showing its signs of age in the common areas, especially hallways. But if you can look past that, it's a wonderful option especially if you are interested in improving your golf game!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facility has a few maintenance issues, but we would definitely stay there again. Our unit was the end unit of the Fairway Condominiums. We had a western exposure that made for great sunsets.

Would not recommend, expensive, rooms old and dirty. Carpet damp fire place didn’t work TV didn’t work. Picture is of back porch overlooking golf course, this picture appears to have been removed from my review on the Bethel Inn website. Management could care less not responsive at all. On an up note the restaurant and their staff was great.

Condos vary. We were moved due to a maintenance issue (which the staff handled very well). WiFi was great in the 1st unit, awful in the second. Otherwise, the units were well equipped, spacious, minimal stairs (split level lay-out), good a/c. The bed was exceptionally firm. I wish they had pillow tops! Easy to walk to town and the Inn's facilities. Easy access parking. Quiet and dark at night.

I booked a 3-day Labor Day weekend in June, but as the time grew closer I became concerned about the negative reviews. Fortunately, our experience was entirely positive. The 5-6 staff with whom we interacted were all courteous and friendly. The room (in the Pines building) was clean and up-to-date with nice furniture, carpeting, etc. The buffet breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The lake house on Songo Pond was a disappointment. It looked dilapidated and abandoned. We did not do dinner at the resort, choosing instead Brians in town a short walk away--fabulous dinner. There was a wedding going on that weekend and all the guests seemed cheerful, which added to the ambience.

Just finished taking part in the two day Golf Vacation School earlier this week. It had come highly recommended by another couple from our local country club. We were excited from the day we booked it as it would give us a little getaway as a couple and hopefully learn some good golf fundamentals. As for the Inn, I can understand some of the concerns of previous reviewers. Luckily for us, none of the dogs barked in our building that I could hear. It would have been an issue if they had though. Yes, the place is a bit dated and my wife was not a fan of there being no elevator, or of the only ice machine being on the second floor of the building next door, but we were able to deal with it ok. Rooms had most of what we needed, but I did have a little trouble with a loose outlet for my Cpap machine. Thankfully, the AC rocked (with a rattle that a pen cap took care of lol) and our room was nice and cool in some very hot weather. All hotel and restaurant staff were super nice and helpful. We had Dave for our golf instructor and he was perfect for what we were looking for. I golf a lot and most of it was refresher stuff for me, but my wife has just started back up after many years off, and she needed fundamentals, which is exactly what Dave focused on. He was extremely qualified, patient, and genuinely concerned about what we were getting from the teaching. Super guy and I highly recommend him as an instructor. The folks in the Pro Shop were very friendly and helpful also. If I had any complaint about the program, it would be that when we booked this, nobody told us about tournaments taking place on the day of our arrival and the day of our departure. The website for this program promotes "unlimited golf" to be included on these two days, so we had planned to come up early and play 18 holes before checking in. I found out about the tournaments almost by accident on my own about a month after booking- I was never contacted by the Inn or the Pro Shop about it. I called to question it and was told that we would still be able to get out for nine holes on the day of our arrival. As it turns out, that was fine. And we, like most folks I'm guessing, were too tired to play a round after our lessons on the departure day, so it turned out to be somewhat of a non-issue, but it would have been nice to have been told up front. I'm sure this something that can be easily fixed with a little communication between the Pro Shop and Reservation desk. Despite these issues, it was a great experience for us and I would recommend it for anyone looking for nice little golf getaway with some lessons in a beautiful area and great golf course.

This is a beautiful location. Very picturesque town. Our room was roomy and comfortable. My husband enjoyed the fitness center and we walked a great deal in the nearby town. We would have liked more restaurant choices but many restaurants not open early part of the week.

Bethel Maine area is beautiful. The grounds, pool, and lake-house were amazing. The unit is spacious and generally clean. More attention is paid to the outside to the neglect of updating the units-very old and leaky faucets, fixtures etc. (tape deck?) We felt like second class citizens as RCI guests. There were no planned activities for families..no spa open all of which were advertised. The bulk of attention and effort is spent on the golf course and customers there. Hedge trimmers outside our window before 8am - no apology...You have to sign out a pool towel in a separate building.

I would not recommend going to The Bethel Inn Resort. The hotel is incredibly overpriced for what you get, the rooms are outdated, there were areas in the hallways roped off with caution tape because there were holes in the flooring Towels were stained, thin, and incredibly scratchy, the management goes so far to keep track of pool towels that are practically see through they are so thin The dining staff were very kind and helpful, but the management were rude and unhelpful throughout our entire trip planning. Also this building is incredibly inaccessible - no working elevators and they had us go all the way around to the back of the building to carry our luggage up a steep flight of outdoor stairs so that we "don't go through the main area" of the building The breakfast that was included was not good, the pastries were soggy and the hot food was overcooked and salty. We had one dinner that was inedible because the burgers were so salty and chose to eat elsewhere in Bethel for the rest of our stay
