    Perched on a small peninsula that juts into York Harbor in Maine, this boutique inn wins over visitors with its picturesque locale. The Stage Neck Inn's Colonial-style guest rooms boast sea views, and you can watch boats bob in the harbor while enjoying fresh lobster on the Sandpiper's outdoor terrace, or from the other on-site dining venues, Shearwater and Outdoor Terrace. Plus, all accommodations come with coffee makers, minifridges, Wi-Fi access and cozy terrycloth robes, though several recent guests thought the rooms could use an update. The inn also houses two pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a full-service spa and two clay tennis courts. But for many, it's the inn's quality customer service that clinches the deal; several guests highlight the front desk and restaurant staff as particularly friendly.

    The Breakwater Inn & Spa is an ideal retreat for visitors seeking a quiet getaway to Kennebunkport, Maine. This hotel – originally built in the 1880s – showcases the area's serene surroundings from its perch along the Kennebunkport River. (Guests considering a stay here should note that, because of the hotel's older roots, there is no elevator in the inn building, but there is an elevator in the spa building.) Rooms and suites are outfitted in nautical sky blue, rich navy and stark white hues and feature pillow-top beds, and free wireless internet access. Also complimentary: The use of the hotel's bikes. If you'd rather stay on-site, work up a sweat at the fitness studio and follow it up with a treatment like a facial, massage or manicure at the spa. Once you're ready for some food, Stripers Waterside Restaurant serves up savory seafood dishes with sunset views. (Note: The restaurant is open on a limited schedule in the offseason.)

    With just 24 rooms, this hotel appeals to travelers looking for a quiet getaway to Brunswick, Maine.

Property-wide amenities all guests can enjoy range from the whirlpool and sauna to the fitness room and guest pantry stocked with snacks and drinks. For a full dinner, visitors can sit down at Coast Bar + Bistro, which features a rotating seasonal menu of Maine specialties.

    The Press Hotel, Autograph Collection
    Portland, ME
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 946 reviewsTripAdvisor (946)
    Free WiFi

    Arguably the best place to kick back and read a newspaper, this boutique hotel (which opened in May 2015) draws design inspiration from the newsroom that used to occupy the property. Each of the hotel's 110 guest rooms features decor inspired by a 1920s-era writer's office, including a vintage desk and reeded glass doors. However, several recent guests pointed out that the rooms, while well-appointed, are on the smaller side. But just because this Autograph Collection hotel nods to the past doesn't mean it's taking a step back from the future. Marble bathrooms, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers come standard in all accommodations, plus there's a fitness center and on-site bike rentals. The hotel's location in the artsy Old Port district of Portland, Maine, seems to rub off on UNION Restaurant & Lounge, which utilizes farm-to-table techniques to create modern, artisan dishes. Recent guests were charmed by the quirky decor of the property and applauded the superb service of the entire hotel staff. Many travelers strongly suggested taking advantage of the complimentary bikes, noting it's the best way to explore the surrounding Old Port district. Keep in mind that because of this hotel's Marriott affiliation, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

    Portland Harbor Hotel
    Portland, ME
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1716 reviewsTripAdvisor (1716)
    Free WiFi

    The Portland Harbor Hotel's unbeatable location and attentive staff received major kudos from recent guests. The property sits in the city's Old Port neighborhood, an area lined with cobblestone streets and 19th-century warehouses. In addition to its charming aesthetics, Old Port is also home to a bevy of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. If you're in the mood to explore, make use of the hotel's complimentary bicycles – a recommendation from past lodgers. And though you'll be surrounded by plenty of top-notch restaurants, consider dining at the on-site eatery, Eve's at the Garden, which visitors said is a solid choice for happy hour. Reviews for the accommodations were a bit more mixed: Some said their digs were clean and comfortable, while others lamented their small size and recommended booking a room that doesn't overlook the street to avoid disruptive neighborhood noise. Wherever your room is located, you'll find it outfitted with a large soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower, feather pillows and complimentary Wi-Fi access. The Portland Harbor Hotel also offers a small fitness center, complimentary Starbucks coffee on each floor and in the lobby, and complimentary transportation to and from Portland International Jetport and the Amtrak station.

Other on-site amenities include a spa and steam room, two heated pools, a hot tub and a fitness center. For dining, the hotel offers The Looking Glass restaurant, which serves breakfast and dinner and was voted “Best Breakfast with a View” by the editors at Yankee Magazine in 2010. However, some recent guests said the options were limited.

    Set in a serene area in northern Bar Harbor, the appropriately named The Bayview boasts panoramic views of Frenchman Bay and nearby Acadia National Park. Guest rooms are simple yet spacious, featuring private balconies and free wireless internet access. Previous guests appreciate homey services like free cookies every afternoon and complimentary breakfast, but what really draws them to The Bayview is the customer service. Visitors can't help but parise the hotel's staff members for their friendly, accommodating behavior. But before you book, you should note that The Bayview closes during the winter months, only accepting reservations between late May and mid-October.
