When we first drove up I was highly disappointed and felt that we may have made a mistake but when we went inside I was happy to see that the room was clean and nicely decorated. The view from the balcony was gorgeous. Neither my husband nor I got much sleep because the bed & pillows were very uncomfortable and...

A little trepidatious, I booked one night here only to arrive, inspect and book our next night here, too! Yes, there's indoor outdoor carpeting in our room but it was clean and unstained. And the toilet (in room 33) rocked a bit! But the accommodation is a mom and pop affair and it is evident they work hard to give...

We stayed here 5 years ago and really liked it. We haven't been back only because we have a time share in the area. Decided to plan a spontaneous trip and decided to go back. There has been some renovating done and of course, so quiet and the fabulous view. Comfy bed and good pillows. Really enjoyed the stay!

The Ledges property provides an affordable, clean, comfortable and quiet room though not at all luxurious more in line with a run of the mill motel chain. The room was spacious & comfortable. Their view of the bay is quite beautiful. If you are looking for affordable accommodations then consider this property.

Nice view, rug filthy, beds uncomfortable, bedding old. Good location. 9/10 cleanliness, but I'm looking for 10/10. Looked much better online. Next time we'll stay somewhere else, like the Samoset, where we have stayed before. My husband liked the convenience of this motel because you can drive up to the door.

In June I reserved the Coveside Retreat for 6 nights in October. It was shown as a light, bright, 2 bedroom 2 bath lodging, separate from the motel portion. When my grandson and I arrived in the late evening we were directed to a dark, dank structure with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath - definitely not the place shown on...

Stopped at Ledges By the Bay as we traveled from Boston Logan airport towards Maine. Greeted warmly as we checked in. The room was simple however very comfortable as we watched the nearly full moon rise on the horizon. The breakfast had a variety of items and both of us found plenty of our favorites. This is a great place...

We booked a mobility accessible room and were pleased to find a handicap parking space in front of the room. The toilet was elevated unlike many of the places we've stayed and there were plenty of grab bars. The room did not look like a hotel room, was very homey with plenty of outlets for chargers, etc. There is no...

I have stayed in the Rockport area several times. I travel from Philadelphia to see family on occasion. I must say the Ledges on the Bay was a great experience. The room was spacious and clean. There was an electric fireplace that gave the room a warm cozy feeling. But best of all was the view from our balcony of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
5 miles south of Camden and set a top a small ledge overlooking Penobscot Bay, the Ledges is a classic Maine motel with panoramic ocean views. The property is nestled at the foot of a cove on 9 oceanfront acres with 900 feet of shoreline. Our hillside location overlooking the bay offers guests the perfect vantage point to spot tall-masted schooners, sleek yachts cruising the bay, and lobster boats hauling traps right off our shore. ... more   less
