There is very little to like about this place. The reason why the price is cheap is because it's a very cheap place. The door in my room did not latch and the front window's latch was broken. Hot water was scarce and the room reeked of a musty odor . The management was as scarce as the hot water and the sidewalks are littered with cigarette butts. The city runs a bus out Hammond St. now but the crew that gets on out there are as sketchy as it gets. No wonder it's rated as the worst in Bangor.
After staying in a few hotels in the area, I will always opt for the family owned business. They treated us like part of the family, the rooms were clean, and the rates were fair. Nice added value was the continental breakfast.
Lousy motel, rooms gross and dumpy. Want a real treat, look at the weekly rentals in the older bldg. in back. If you can get by all the creepy people hanging out in parking lot. They say Ted Williams once stayed here, he probably did, and they haven't cleaned the rooms yet.
I stayed here last summer with my husband and baby. Never again! The owner tried to scam us by saying the rates had changed (the manager said the rates never change). The place was filthy - we had to buy some bleach and scrub the bathroom before we could use it. The shower was covered in rust, dirt and paint chips and the towels were a disgusting grey color. There was a stench that would not go away and the place was crawling with bugs. I put my baby on the floor and within minutes his legs were literally black with dirt. A/C and microwave cost extra. The location was good, close to Bangor and the I95, but I would recommend booking in at the Motel6 instead, as it's a couple of minutes away.
The accommodations and services at the Ranger Inn are horrendous. From sticky carpets that are stained with cigarette burns and vomit belonging to previous occupants, to black mold so pervasive that it will leave you with a headache upon opening the door.
The denizens are a rough and sorted lot with no obvious ambition aside from standing at their motel door cigarette in hand. The fat manager has no idea what customer service means and she seems to have a very limited scope on her behavior towards guests who have no idea what is in for them. In fact, I think she has become so adept at defending the myriad of problems guests complain to her about I doubt she is surprised by anything anyone says about their 'assigned' room at STALAG 17.
The owner, Joel, is a con artist who steals city money under the pretense of housing homeless vagrants while collecting any money he can from the vagrants themselves. And when the vagrants can't pay anymore of their own money, Joel locks them out without notice and steals whatever material possesions that were left behind, and sends them to the homeless shelter. In fact, I question Joel's reputation as a business owner. Any man who would destroy his name by associating it with a motel business that could easily be mistaken for the location of the newest Hostel movie must be questioned.
When staying at hotels/motels I am always on guard for places like this. Many times I have been surprised by the kind of value these places offer and would return without question. However, The Ranger Inn is not one of these decent kind of places and there is absolutely no value there at all.
I was a student coming to Maine to study for 1 month. They had good weekly rates and I thought this would be great vs. finding a apt for a month etc. Boy was I wrong. They promised me everything like internet, refridge, microwave. Those didn't exisit once I got there- oh wait they didn but a FEE. The internet was going to charge me every time I got online and for a per min rate- Totally not what owner emailed me when I reached out to them. After getting there and seeing all the lies I left. Says Family Business etc. Puts family on webpage- probably don't even exist. Probably not true just like the rest of what they promised that wasn't true. PLus the crowd was rough. standing outside smoking etc. I felt like as soon as I left they would break into my room as they watched me from the room to my car. Don't waste your time with this place
This place is terrible! More like a hole in the wall. SHould be shut down. I arrived and could tell the place was not right. Asked if I could see room. Was given a lecture on how that was not allowed as guest would pee in the rooms then not pay. Should have been my 1st clue it was a dump. The lady at the desk promised I wouldn't be disappointed and to said just check in. I did. OMG my wife looked in the room and we left. Back at the desk the lady didn't want to give us a refund (even though we didn't use the restroom) w/o a fight. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
ITS A GOOD LOCATION. CHECK OTHER PLACES AS THEY MAY HAVE CLOSE TO THE SAME RATES. ROOM WAS HUMID. THERE WAS NO A/C , NO BIGGIE EVEN IN THE SUMMER. STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY THOUGH. STAINED CHAIR. FOR $49 OR SO YOU CANT REALLY EXPECT A WHOLE LOT.
I dislike that our feet stuck to the floor. After this experience, we decided to sleep fully clothed and with our shoes on. Price point it was a good value, but we wont be staying another night at the Ranger Inn.
The key didn’t work - complained the following morning and was assure it would be repaired - it wasn’t. The screens did not fit the windows but the room was extremely musty and had to be aired out. The baseboard heaters were hanging off the wall. The bedside lamp did not work. Bedding had burn holes in it.
Moved to room 209 the second night. Ceiling fan/light missing a blade causing it to wobble beyond use as it might fall. Upholstered chair badly stained and filthy dirty. Next morning discovered the water in basin went down the drain and directly out onto the floor. Room smelled worse than 208.
Never again will we be caught dead in Ranger Inn!!!!!
