What a great place for multiple families to gather and enjoy one of the most wonderful regions in the world. We gathered with five families, took full advantage of all the facilities as well as the location (it's just steps away from the bike trails in Acadia and a short buss ride to town). The rooms are generously sized, with...

This was our second visit to this place, it is really a great place to stay while visiting Acadia National Park. The staff is extremely friendly, the rooms are very nice, clean and large, there are laundry facilities, and they offer a really tasty gratuituous breakfast. Certainly not our last visit to this place.

We can't thank you enough for being a returning guest. Creating an environment where guests feel welcome and safe is our goal and repeat visitors only help to reaffirm that we are meeting it.

The hotel was great. I'm very picky and can honestly say that we were very pleased. The room was very clean, furnishing nice, location on bus line very good, and the lobby staff was exceptionally nice. The rooms are in building with 3 or 4 rooms each, so you have privacy. We had a really nice grassy area in front...

Thank you for these kind words. The word "nice" appeared in your review several times and it made us smile because we have an unpublicized rule of conduct here at the Bar Harbor Motel which is - "Just be nice." It's a mantra we repeat over and over to our staff. In truth we try to only hire people who...

The staff at the Motel is wonderful. The breakfast was good. They had fruit and juices and bagels.... Everything was replenished quickly. It was a little far from the center of town to walk, even though we did one night. There was a path from the motel to walk into Acadia Park. We would definitely stay there again.

I stayed here with my family many years ago when the kids were little because the motel property is adjacent to Acadia's carriage paths and close to town. I remembered the Bar Harbor Motel being clean and pleasant with nice grounds. My wife and I returned last week without the kids for a long weekend. We were pleasantly surprised that...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We expected (hoped) a clean motel with a good location and not more. But everything from the beginning was top-plus. We could always park right outside our room. The room and the bathroom are certainly better than your average motel room. The king side bedroom was the better of all our New England trip!...

The Bar Harbor Motel had clean, spacious rooms, good breakfast, snacks and drinks throughout the day, friendly staff, and a family friendly environment. For nature lovers, the back of the property connects to a walking trail that leads into Acadia National Park, but even if you don't go all the way to the park on foot, the trail is a...

This is an economical, clean and comfortable place to stay in Bar Harbor. The rooms are spacious and well maintained and the staff are a credit to the hotel, helpful and welcoming. Despite being on the main road into Bar Harbor we were not disturbed by traffic noise and slept very well. Bar Harbor is inclined to be a rather...

We believe we are the only hotel in Bar Harbor serving chocolate chocolate chip muffins at breakfast. They have been a big hit since we started that four years ago and is now one of our signature items at breakfast. We're glad you enjoyed them and we look forward to seeing you again.
