We had carpentar ants, called management. We were told there was nothing they could do tonight. The next morning we were told that we made more of a big deal out of this than it was. Tried to get out of second night or some type of compensation nothing was done. Would not recommend this place and it wasnt cheap

The only nice thing I can say about this place is that it is very convenient - just a block or two from the heart of the village. The compliments end there. If you are on a budget, want an in-town location, aren't fussy about cleanliness or comfort, don't mind waking up to the sounds of the guests in the...

We booked our stay over the Internet last minute,even though trip advisor ratings where not flattering we where limited due to availibity. The Desk person was pleasant and helpful,he gave us directions to a dinner spot and shopping. The room was dated but clean but we where shocked to have no hot water in the morning,we stayed later and finally...

This hotel is basic and clean, just what we wanted. If you're looking at prices in the area you see they are very high. This hotel is inexpensive compared to others in the area. The staff is super nice and helpful. The location is superb. If you want basic, clean, and to save a few bucks this is the perfect...

The room was not clean. There was mould on the faucet and on the curtin of the bathroom. Discosting pillow and very dated furniture. Great location but for the price you can get a much more better place to stay. I will never come back.

The mattresses were hard and very uncomfortable, and the pillows were awful. There was no coffee in the room AND NO WIFI, even though WIFI was advertised. When I called to tell the manager I was unable to get on line, he was very short with me. We would never stay there again.

There were several reasons to stay here, but the number 1 reason was price and number 2 was availability. We were using it as a stop over on our way back from Canada and we decided that the day before that we needed a room in Bar Harbor on a Saturday night in JULY!!! I didn't think we'd get anything...

This was my second stay here and I'm not sure I would come back. Pros: great location, walking distance to just about everything in Bar Harbor. Reasonably priced for the area and pet friendly. Cons: decor is very dated but that's not a deal killer. However, the mattresses are hard and the foam pillows have to be 10 years old;...

I was hoping the negative reviews weren't true but sadly they are. I didn't mind the vintage style of the decor but the smell.....was horrific. The mildew was so strong my throat swelled up and I started getting flu like symptoms. My clothes reeked like it when we left, In addition, we were on the first floor and could hear...

Traveling with my 3 teenage boys and didn't want to spend a lot on accommodations, as i would be breaking the bank on feeding the beasts. This place was clean, the staff was very accommodating and the parking was great. We were only in the room to sleep and shower. The best feature of the anchorage motel was its convenience...
