I will report my response from your review on August 18th for the same exact stay of just you and your dog. You were a horrible guest. So I am happy to reply to your negative review with zero feedback associated with it. You showed up here with your dog that you didn't have registered, reserved in one of our two non-pet friendly rooms. We placed you in another room and did not even charge you for your dog. On the way to your room, you tripped and spilled dog food on the floor. I cleaned the dog food up as soon as I got you to your room. Within 10 minutes of checking in, you had managed to tear the hot water pipe out of the floor, causing us to shut the water off to the inn and get an emergency plumber in. I moved you to yet another room. As I was cleaning up the bathroom, and others were cleaning up our private quarters that were flooded, I found the non-slip bath mat we provided wedged under the bathroom door. It took effort on your part to actually do any of this. The next day, you decided to leave a day early, but you couldn't call us to let us know (because supposedly you don't have a cell phone even though you were on a cell phone as you sat in our parking lot after you showed up hours early for check-in) or ring the doorbell that all guests are shown during check-in to reach us. You could, however, rifle through my office to scribble a note that you had an emergency and I should refund you the second night. I found that note much later in the day when it was way past the time that we could have re-rented that room for the night . You then called me the next day to whine that I didn't refund the second night even though you didn't stay. I informed you that you had a non refundable rate through your online travel agent (which did not even cover the money I paid for the emergency plumber and the nightmare you caused). I informed you that you could take it up with the online travel agent. I am guessing that failed as you then filed a dispute with your credit card company. You were even so kind as to leave a bucket of chicken bones in the dresser. And I have on video (the video that is on the doorbell you never rang to say you were checking out, but obviously aware of) as you scrawled your note... you going through my office, being extremely rude to another guest, and even giving the camera the finger after you scared the other guest. I am happy that you didn't enjoy your stay here, because we didn't enjoy having you and are thrilled that you will never return.

The Inn at the Agora was lovely. Jan was very helpful and made our stay most enjoyable. Our room was clean and had the a/c running so we were immediately comfortable. We will definitely visit again when in the area!

Bed & Breakfast in Downtown Lewiston

Pros: Older building with large room which was very comfortable.
Cons: Breakfast inside would probably attract more customers.
Location: This B&B is close to the local hospital, churches, and downtown.
An older home with a gracious and helpful host. No breakfast is available so a voucher is given for 2 nearby places. We chose a neighborhood diner which was a good way to get a feel for the local community. This may not be for someone looking for a breakfast in the B&B but it was fine for my wife and me.

Thanks so much for your very nice review, Bob. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we hope you'll return. We are officially a small inn or a boutique hotel and never have intended to present ourselves as a B&B. The vouchers we offer toward breakfast at locally-owned small restaurants is an added "perk" to our amenities and hope that you enjoyed Simones' as it is a delightful diner full of local color. Next time you stay, Forage Market might be a good alternative with additional local color!

Lovely Place

Location: Close to Bates College, which was our reason for visiting. The neighborhood behind the hotel was sketchy.
lovely place, loved the high ceilings and decor. Appreciated the game room and the parlor with complimentary port and fudge. Comfortable and luxurious bed. Loved that pets were welcomed. Loved the variety of books set about to browse. I thought the owner was just right: friendly and not intrusive. Missed not having more places to set our stuff, like a second suitcase rack, hooks in the bathroom, and another chair in the bedroom. Missed not having a breakfast option, even if just bagle and juice, esp. after reading that the owner is an accomplished cook. There was a $5 coupon to eat breakfast in town, though.

Thank you for your lovely review…we enjoyed your stay also! And we appreciate your suggestions. We do have extra luggage racks and are happy to provide them upon request. The hooks and perhaps an extra chair....we're going to check that out! In terms of breakfast, unfortunately, without converting the kitchen to commercial level we are not allowed to serve food; however, we do partner with two wonderful little locally-owned restaurants within walking distance of the Inn and provide a $5 coupon toward each of our guests' breakfast each morning.....a great way to make sure our guests don't leave town hungry and supporting fellow small businesses. Another plus is more common space for our guests to relax outside of their rooms during their stay.
