Spruce Point Inn Earns 2012 TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for Outstanding Traveler Reviews

Boothbay Harbor, Maine (PRWEB) May 31, 2012 — Enthusiastic travelers’ reviews of Spruce Point Inn Resort & Spa, the 57-acre waterfront Maine resort in the coastal village of Boothbay Harbor have earned the property the TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. Honoring hospitality excellence, the award is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Only 10 percent of all lodging properties worldwide listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.

To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Recognition also comes from the volume of reviews received within the past 12 months.

Ranked first among all lodging properties in Boothbay, Spruce Point Inn receives consistently high TripAdvisor travelers’ reviews. Recent comments include:

Maine at its finest. Spent a weekend at Spruce Point Inn and loved everything about it. The rooms were amazing with a very comfortable bed and a fabulous view. The property is large and there are so many areas to relax and take in the tranquil beauty.”

“Great for family reunions: our family of 10 adults and 8 kids spent one night at the SPI and wished we could have spent more. Worth 5 stars, we loved the property. A true resort -- unlike some hotels that just slap on the "resort" label and the only thing to do is swimming.”

And, from a woman who works in the hospitality industry in Maryland, “I will use this place as an example of all the things that make guests feel warm, welcomed, special and more - for a most memorable vacation and getaway experience. We truly cannot wait to go back.”

”Spruce Point inn is delighted to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Angelo Digiulina, innkeeper for Spruce Point Inn. “The award reinforces what we see every day from guests who post TripAdvisor reviews – that we succeed in creating ‘oceanside memories made in Maine.’”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional businesses for consistent excellence, as reviewed by travelers on the site,” said Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives highly rated establishments around the world, such as Spruce Point Inn, the recognition they deserve. From exceptional accommodations in Beijing to remarkable restaurants in Boston, we applaud these businesses for offering TripAdvisor travelers a great customer experience.”
