Received this weekend getaway stay as a gift from our kiddos for Christmas. Loved the rain shower and the radiant heat in the bathroom floor.beautiful view of the ocean from our room even in January. The only issue we had was that it was the chilly January weekend and the heat has limits on them and whether you turn it up or not it would not warm up past 66 due to the cold outside radiating through the windows. Not a deal breaker but rough given the cold days we spent outdoors adventuring. The continental breakfast was a nice start to our day serving juice, cheese, oatmeal with fruit, croissants with jelly. I think there was coffee too but I don’t drink it so didn’t look at that area.

Responded 1 Mar 2024
Dear Rose, Thank you for reviewing our hotel after your weekend getaway and for pointing out so many nice things! We're delighted you enjoyed your stay. We are so sorry to hear that your room was chilly; this is unusual, and we don't have limits on the heat, so it's strange you observed that. I am worried that perhaps a window was open without anyone noticing, or maybe your HVAC fell offline. We would have loved to help with that. We could have moved you while we investigated, or offered help in some way. Please never hesitate to reach out to staff; we are here 24 hours for your comfort. You sound like such fun, adventurous travelers. I'm so happy that you didn't let it spoil your adventures, but please reach out to me personally next time you'd like to visit and I will make special arrangements to ensure you get the warmest welcome possible. All the best, Ruth Starr GM

Hotel's Favourite
This place is a gem. Everything was wonderful, from the interesting architecture of the building, the beautiful artwork everywhere, to the personal attention of the staff. I had a lovely conversation with other guests during the wine social and really enjoyed the delicious, well thought out continental breakfast in the morning. The hotel is right on Main Street, so an easy walk to galleries, museums and the Project Puffin Visitors Center (wonderful video, staff, and lots of fun puffin stuff for sale). Easy parking in a huge parking lot across Main Street and down a little hill next to the water. Will definitely be back!

The staff, the rooms, the common areas are all 5+ stars! The people that work there are all incredibly nice and so welcoming to our pup. This was a wonderful Christmas getaway with the town’s unique Christmas tree right across the street. The radiant heat and towel warmer in the bathroom were a comfy addition to the AMAZING shower. We look forward to visiting during the other seasons!

There are so many things right with this hotel that it's hard to focus on just any one. But start with the artwork in the lobby, on each floor and in the room--fine, varied works of mixed media from local artists. Again, from the lobby up, the welcome is warm, the happy hour wine and beer are cold, and the staff is quick to help. After visiting Rockland's two museums, head up to the roof terrace for a view of expansive harbor and its breakwater lighthouse.

I loved everything about this hotel. The staff was so friendly during happy hour and breakfast and in giving dinner recommendations. We stayed on the fifth floor in a Fabulous room with large windows overlooking the harbor and a comfortable king bed. The bathroom was spacious with a heated floor and heated towel rack. Each room has it's own artwork and each floor has a seating area with vintage books and art. There's also a rooftop seating area for guests to enjoy. If you book directly with the hotel, you receive a complimentary glass of wine or beer during happy hour with cheese, crackers, and dried fruit. Breakfast is plentiful with oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, fruit, and juice. I loved all the small touches like taps of drinking water in the lobby with bottles to fill to take to your room and umbrellas by the door to borrow on a rainy day. The only things I can say that weren't prefect was there was some noise from the street (not a bother for me as we used the sound machine in the room at night) and there was no coffee maker in the room (there was a note offering coffee room service but we did not take advantage of this). If we find ourselves back in Rockland we would absolutely stay here again.

My wife and I had a great stay at 250Main. We love small boutique hotels and 250Main lived up to our expectations. Room 501 had an awesome view of the harbor, lighthouse and the breakwater. The ability to walk to dinner and attractions was a plus. The restaurants in town were very good. Ada's, DryDock and Archers were our favorites.  The Farnsworth art gallery was a great find, as well as Blue Raven gallery.  The staff at 250Main were very helpful and attentive to our needs. I really love the water dispensers and glass bottles. We enjoyed the sparkling water during our stay. The continental breakfast was just right. My wife loved the chocolate buns.  The location of Rockland worked well for us to travel north to Camden and Belfast. WE also made trips South to Bath. WE want to take a ferry to Monhegan on our next trip. Thanks for a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

I arrived from a six plus hour drive from Upstate New York well after checkin. I was greeted by Jillian at the front desk with a warm smile and a welcome on a scale from 1-10. Jillian is a 10 plus, plus. My room was amazing and the staff is attentive and through. If you want a great hotel with a great view, comfortable with modern architecture inside and out. This is your hotel. You won’t regret it!!!

Who would have thought there would be a little boutique hotel in Rockland? We had a cozy room and it was so spacious with beautiful design and a king sized bed. This was the best hotel we stayed at during our roadtrip from Montreal through Bar Harbor down to Rockland. I finally got a good nights sleep and wished I had this standard of hotel everywhere we went to. The small breakfast served was good in quality. The only thing I would definitely add to the rooms is a safe to store important things.

We really did enjoy our stay. I am an artist in California and I stepped into a lobby full of beautiful art. Not only that, every floor had more art and bookcases full of interesting reads. This boutique hotel was fresh and clean, the staff was helpful and friendly, location was perfect. And finally, for the first time on our trip we sunk into wonderful pillows!

Our stay at 250Main was one of the top 3 hotel stays ever. We’ve traveled a ton and this is such a great balance of location, walkability, comfort, and urban-chic. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway or just a great chance to explore DownEast Maine.
