We have visited HTI in the first half of September. We have stayed the 'motel' part of inn for one night. The place offers clean, spacious rooms, with ocean view from the window. The only thing which might be improved was the bathroom, which was a bit oldfashioned, but still clean and tidy. In the morning we had a delicious, totally homemade breakfast consisting of muffins, popovers, marmolade, coffee and fruits. The housekeepers were very nice and helpfull! We will definitely come back there when next time visiting New England!

The best thing about High Tide was Michael who manned the desk! He was very gracious.The breakfast was wonderful the first morning, but after the third morning the same watermelon and popovers were tiresome.
Our room was damp, had sagging floors, worn carpet, threadbare sheets, and broken woodwork with mold showing through. There was no cell phone reception and the room phones were out of order. The desk in the main building closed at 8:00, so if there were an emergency, no one could be reached. Ice had to be gotten in a beat up garage.
By our 3rd night, we were not given any toilet paper or tissue replacements, so had to use a box of Kleenex from our car. There are far better places to stay in Bar Harbor! I won't return there.

This is the perfect spot if you like peaceful quietness. Our room by the water was simple and comfortable, we could hear the waves, the breakfast was terrific,and the host was warm and welcoming. Next time we will stay longer!

We called many hotels when driving in to the Camden area, and got a room at the Inn. We were expecting a roadside motel. When we drove up, that's what we saw and the room we got. Very simple, but very clean rooms. Quiet and peaceful property. The surprise was seeing the property that opened up to a beautiful lawn overlooking the water. This motel is the closest thing to a B&B. We woke the next morning, although beds could be a bit more comfortable, to a fabulous home cooked, baked goods breakfast with coffee, juice, fruit, and jams. The warm popovers, coconut muffins, breads, etc were to die for. Jo was an incredible hostess and baker. She shared many ideas with us for outings in the area which proved to be spectacular. We enjoyed the motel and area (very close to Camden, Rockport, Lincoln, Rockland, and Mt Battie) so much that we booked a second night. A definite stop and a gem in the area.

We picked the High Tide Inn after reading good reviews and it lived up to all of them. Room was clean and comfortable. The freshly baked muffins were the best. The beach was gorgeous! The staff/owner were super nice. It has the social B&B feel with the privacy of a motel.

This is a must stop for us on our next trip to Acadia.

Enjoyed our ocean view room but the other room we rented for my best friend had issues with the maintenance guy hammering away and playing music at 8am in the morning on a Sunday. They could have chosen an appropriate time for this when you are paying 140 bucks for a room.

This was our 1st trip to the Maine coast and we found everything we were looking for at the High Tide Inn. The area is amazing. The facilities were perfect for the laid back environment we wanted. Jo and the staff were outstanding. This is a great place at a great value. Will com back again.

Room Tip: Fresh baked popovers every morning are amazing.
