... Area seemed sketchy so we didn’t explore haha. Back to the room + to bed but I went to the lobby to use the wifi where I met a couple of Brazilians - Tacio and Victor who were really nice! Told them that I was coming to Brazil and asked them questions. When I told Tacio I was staying in a hostel in brazil his face dropped a little and he said “I don’t know of my hostels in Rio… You’re going to get shot”, so I pretty much shat myself then and ...
After a very heavy rain trip to Brunswick via Portland we spent a little time getting warm and dry again. The motel is very nice, the rooms are spacious with a kitchenette and surprisingly clean. Just before we made it to the motel an unplanned detour due to lack of orientation took is off our route for good ...

We made a short stop in Richmond, ME, at another KOA on our way to Acadia National Park. The only real excitement here were the American games in the front yard, including bags (we were unusually horrific at this - full blame going to the makeshift bags we were using) and also ladder golf (Fiona's first brief attempt). The remainder of our stay was spent cooking dinner, sitting by the fire and roasting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Senator Inn & Spa Augusta
My stay at the Senator was a very positive experience. The quality of the spa and spa suites is comparable to resorts I have visited in Phoenix and Las Vegas. The attention to detail and service left me feeling pampered and taken care of.
The restaurant is an amazing gourmet experience that I would not expect to find at a hotel in this area. Both the ambiance and the food are excellent.
I especially loved the spa boutique, there are some true artistic 'finds' here that are unique and affordable.
I stayed at the Best Western Senator in Augusta for one night and I will never stay there again. After check in I found that my room was very small, but that was just the beginning.
I think this hotel does benefit a good deal from being the only 3+ star hotel in Augusta. The hotel was clean, the service was good, and the wireless internet worked. However, I did have a couple of complaints - The "Free" breakfast. This is a continental breakfast that you get for free, such as a donut, muffin, fruit cup, or bowl of cereal. You do have to pay $2.50 for soda, coffee, or juice however, and including your tip, you just paid $4.00 for a free breakfast of a muffin and a cup of joe. I'd recommend going to the bagel shop down the road. To the Best Western Senator - Keep the free breakfast, it only upsets your guests when you gouge us for the beverage.
As we walked into the lobby to check in, there was a vitriolic man who was arguing with the desk clerk and someone on the hotel phone about the quality of his room. He was all worked up into a nasty frenzy and finally hurled the phone across the counter in a display reminiscent of Russell Crow's famous tantrum. As he departed, kicking furniture and yelling at the top of his lungs, we all were appalled at his tactless actions.
As a business traveler who stays in 60 to 70 hotels a year (and reviews nearly all of them on TripAdvisor), I've seen the some of the best and some of the worst. One of the most disturbing experiences is to stay in a hotel that gets good reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, but turns out to be a very disappointing.
Very enjoyable experience!!!
We've traveled quite a bit lately and our most pleasant experience has been at the Senator Inn & Spa. All around great time -- employees were friendly and helpful, lobby was nice, room was clean and comfortable, pool/whirlpool/steam room/fitness facilities were excellent. Very relaxing. Restaurant was great. Actually can't wait to have to be in the Augusta area again!
Just Great !!!
Excellent property, food in restaurant was wonderful, beautiful rooms, jacuzzi in room, fireplace in room. One of the best places I have stayed.
An Oasis in Augusta
Wow what a great place... where else can you get a comfortable room with above average attention to detail. The Front Desk clerk was very helpful to our needs and made sure the room was to our liking. The indoor salt water pool was refreshing and relaxing. The Spa is a Jewel to the augusta area and from the looks of the expansion that is going on, it will only bet better. We were treated to the complimentary breakfast in the main restaurant. Eggs, fruit and other delectables were in the offering. We will be back in the future.
Very bad experience at the Senator Inn & Spa. We had reserved a non-smoking deluxe room close to the front of the hotel. The deluxe room was to have a microwave, 2 fridges and 2 tvs. We endedup in a smoking room (disgusting) very far away from the front desk, with one TV and a 4 inch portable in the bathroom and only one fridge and no microwave.The card-key door locks did not work. After 3 times to the front desk, finally the maintenance person told us "oh yeah, this lock does not work. The manager was trying to fix this and I guess he didn't. They probably shouldn't have rented this room out". Nice. The lack of interest by the front desk staff made it all the more bothersome.Finally the hot breakfast is nothing to rave about. The eggs benedict were absolutlely soaked in butter and we were unable to eat them. We went out for breakfast.My advice: stay elsewhere. This place is not all that its cracked-up to be. Very disappointing.
