Stayed here for a weekend event at Colby. The building is from the 1960's but has been well maintained. The rooms are good sized and the bathrooms are small but recently renovated. The bedding and abundant pillows were good quality. The staff was very helpful and the free breakfast was adequate. For $99 for 2 queens , it was a solid value.

After waiting 10-15 minutes after the leek talking with a friend or relative on the phone, we finally got some kind of service!!!

For over $85 a night we got a room almost as good as any cheap motel with outstanding view to the parking lot!!! And a almost tempting to eat whoopsie cake that we discard right away!!!

We should have sleep in our car but unfortunately Hotels.com already cashed our precious money !!!

The best thing so far is the Starbucks nearby where we must go to wake up After getting inside this so warm heated room since there is no AC available here before May 1st !!! Only heat for the supposedly cold season in Maine!!! We may have to sleep on the balcony after all !!!

Needless to say, try to find an hotel in Augusta or sleep in your car!!!

We were in Waterville for business and chose this place because of other favorable reviews. We were very pleased with the large, clean room. Two comfy chairs! The buildings are older but care has been taken to update rooms. All the staff were friendly and so helpful. Shopping moments away and an on-site restaurant are also a plus. We will definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Fireside Inn for one night and couldn't have been more pleased. The front desk staff was friendly, check in was easy, and they gave us whoopie pies as a personal welcome (nice touch). The room was a good size, the heat worked really well (it is chilly in April), the room was very clean, bathroom was nice, they use "green" products, and they have a microwave and fridge if you are staying multiple days. There is a restaurant next door, good continental breakfast, a Starbucks next door for your caffeine fix, and a Walmart if you forgot anything .... although they kindly provide us shaving cream at no charge. Great hotel. If back in Waterville again one day, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you for your kind comments, especially noting that you are a frequent contributor to Tripadvisor. I am fortunate to have good people who really care about a guest's experience, from the front desk to housekeeping and maintenance.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Please visit us again in the summer. It's beautiful, and not so chilly.

We stay at the hotel whenever we visit our son at Colby College. The hotel is less than a mile from the College, so I highly recommend it for parents. It is not a luxury hotel, a bit run down, but very clean, the staff is phenomal and it is attached to Governors Restaurant--diner type food but convenience can't be beat. The hotel does provide free continental breakfast in lobby and free wi-fi in every room--works great!. Tricia at the desk is always a pleasure to see. Right near shopping area--Walmart, Staples, JC Penney, KMart. Minutes from downtown Waterville. Right off I95 at Exit 130 so if you're traveling north and need to rest for a night it's perfect. It has fireplace rooms-though we've never stayed in one and an outdoor pool. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We certianly like to see the parents of our Colby students. Over the four years, we get to know the faces and the names.
I'm pleased that you enjoy your stays with us and that you enjoy seeing Tricia when you get here. I am fortunate to have good staff in all areas who have stayed with us over many years.
