Where to stay if I have kids?

I am not sure which hotel to pick. Any good ideas? I want a clean and nice place to stay with kids. Something that is not a motel 6 type place.

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel last August based on the recommendations here. We stayed in a family suite which had 2 bedrooms (one with king-size bed and the other with 2 doubles). By the time we got there, I needed to do laundry and their facilities were clean and efficient. As an added bonus, the Island Explorer also stops at the property.

Have you ever considered renting a house or apartment directly from the owner? There are many sites where you can view such rentals and they are a bargain for families, spacious, with a kitchen and often laundry facilities.

If you google "vacational rental Acadia," "vacational rental Bar Harbor," "vacation rental Mt. Desert Island" you will find many sites listing such properties.

I second the vote for the Bar Harbor Motel. We stayed for a week in July and loved it. Nice staff, very clean, rooms set up for families, free coffee and board games you can borrow in the lobby. Lots of kids to play with at the pool. Will stay here again.
