Danielle B wrote a review Jan 2024

A great boutique hotel in the heart of Camden! We had one of the king suites on the lobby level. The room was wonderful and spacious, and the bathroom was gorgeous with double sinks, a big walk-in shower and a jacuzzi tub. We loved being so close to The Vintage Room (the hotel's lobby bar). Not a typical lobby bar, either - this one is beautiful, with an intimate setting including a cozy fireplace and comfy chairs. Some of the best cocktails we have ever had, too! The only downfall was the food service in The Vintage Room was not offering full dinner service due to inclement weather/staffing issues one night. Other than that we would stay there again in a heartbeat! The front desk staff checked in with us via text throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Great service at this cozy hotel!

Hello Danielle B, We are so appreciative of you taking time to share a review of your recent stay with us. I am thrilled to learn of your enjoyment with your room which you highlighted to include the spaciousness and bathroom fixtures. Please allow me to sincerely apologize for you not being able to experience Vintage Room in full fashion. Our modified menu had to be pulled together due to a last minute staff family emergency right before opening. Never ideal, however we were glad to have other team members get creative that evening. I am so glad you enjoyed the cocktails too! I’m please to also learn of the great communication from our guest services team. I look forward to your future stay with us! Sincerely, Erick Anderson – General Manager

Hotel's Favourite
This is a truly fantastic and relaxing hotel. Everyone on staff was warm and welcoming. We loved our ocean view suite (room 28) that had a great view of the harbor and the eating/shopping area nearby. I spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the fresh air. Rooms are beautifully decorated and the amenities were great. My wife and daughter loved the spa tub. The breakfasts each morning were fresh and we could not have asked for a more convenient location to explore the area. We will definitely be back!

I treated my husband and I for a long birthday weekend. I splurged and got the Harbour Suite. Big bed, fireplace, sitting area, view of the harbor, squishy bed, big bath and a fireplace. They offer turn down service and a small but nice breakfast with eggs, bacon, potatoes, fruit, yogurt and coffee. They continually ask if you need anything and are very helpful. I said to my husband all they are missing is a coffee maker in the room and a mini fridge and low and behold, he opened a closet and there they were. Ta da! It was a very decadent weekend for us but lovely and very enjoyable.

Could not be more pleased with my stay at 16 Bayview! The staff is accommodating, professional, courteous, the rooms are utterly breathtaking! Luxury amenities, spectacular views, an incredible bar with an excellent selection of drinks and food just downstairs. If you are looking for a place to stay, you would be foolish to overlook this place! Cannot say enough good things about 16 Bayview!!

Salem, Massachusetts77 contributions22 helpful votes
My husband and I recently stayed for a one night getaway. We have stayed here many times before and it still remains one of our favorite places to stay in Maine. The front desk staff is extremely pleasant and helpful - we had an issue with our TV and called the desk and within minutes we had someone in our room fixing the issue. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and everything we look for in a little escape from the chaos of life. Although we loved our stay, the one downside was after dinner we stopped into the lounge for a relaxing after dinner drink and the lounge was literally filled with a room full of college aged (or close) kids that were loud and taking over the entire lounge so that it made sitting and having a relaxing drink very uncomfortable....that being said we would not hesitate to come back.

Overall this property is a good stay. It is not without its issues much out of their control such as parking and noise. The location is outstanding. The rooms are comfortable. The views are nice. The Vintage Bar is nice, but needed more staff. The breakfast is above average with REAL scrambled eggs, but the potatoes were ice cold.

I’m so glad you enjoyed the room and the views and a wonderful constructive note on your breakfast as well! Kindly, Erick Anderson – General Manager

Room was excellent including the spacious sitting room and bathroom. Excellent linens and housekeeping. Attentive staff. Nice breakfast. Lovely roof top bar with a view. Downsides: TV totally web based (bring your Prime or Netflix passwords) and parking situation is precarious at best.

Dear Qsby Traveler, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the room you stayed in and the amenities included. Our rooftop bar/restaurant, The View most definitely lives up to its name. We are glad you were able to partake of it during its operational season (Mid May-October) *weather permitting*. I am sorry to hear the TV experience was a downside. We do offer cable options as well as many other options, some web based, available which many guests enjoy. As parking can be tricky sometimes we hope you are able to use our valet services-available upon request. As we are a boutique hotel we do have a limited amount of rooms on our higher levels. We recommend booking as soon as possible as some seasons do have festivals and competitions which make the demand for rooms higher. I again thank you for your valuable feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kindly, Emma Guest Services Manager

My two night stay at 16 Bay View exceeded my expectations. The quality of materials chosen for the rooms is high above what I have experienced in other hotels - even ones with more stars and a higher cost. The detailed woodworking on the mantel, the marble-endowed bathroom plus the bedding and over all decor make 16 Bay View unique. And quite the shower, too. My suite - room 37 - had 3 balconies (one looking toward the harbor) and 2 fireplaces. Lots of space plus totally inviting and quiet. The TVs are updated and include Apple TV which then launches other channel options like Netflix, etc. Local channels were easy to find, too. The thermostat made sense and the temperature was easily controlled. Breakfast in the Vintage included scrambled eggs, a meat, plus fruits, yogurt, granola and breads. The scones and biscuits were top notch. The location is perfect and parking is close by as are restaurants, shopping and the harbor. The rooftop restaurant and bar is worth a visit. The staff was most helpful. Thanks to Everett for assisting with my luggage and offering restaurant advice. Hoping to return for a longer stay.

What a delightful boutique hotel! The rooms are very comfortable, the fireplace a nice touch, great shower. The buffet breakfast is simple yet excellent, more like a B&B. Friendly staff as well. My only gripe is that they advertise a fitness center and upon checking in they tell you that you get a pass for the local YMCA, which is a five minute drive away!!! Seriously false advertising. Other than that it’s the best place to stay in Camden.
