Reviewed 15 October 2012

The room was tiny, the bathroom was even tinier, and smelled stronly like mildew. The hotel is actually more like a bunch of small camping trailers put next to each other. Wasnt the cleanest hotel either. Location was good and for the area, was a good price, but you get what you pay for. I'd put in a few more bucks and get something a bit nicer. Continental breakfast was pretty sparse as well.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to spend a night near Acadia National Park prior to visiting the next day . Twilite Motel lived up to the reviews posted on T/A. Found the owners very helpful and hospitable, even allowing me to go through their change bucket in my search for US states commemorative 25c (and I found some I needed for my set). Breakfast was adequate and especially nice on the veranda. Bed was comfy and the setting with the trees in front with the easy chair really was very relaxing. Perfect for what we wanted.

Clean, comfortable, convenient, very reasonably priced. Need I say more? But Tripadvisor requires that I do, so I'll add that the owners are friendly and helpful and that on future trips to the area I won't stay anywhere else.

I enjoyed my stay here. My room was as described when I booked it. Also clean and nice atmosphere. Staff was very friendly. Yes, the muffins are great. i could hook into wifi if i was in the vicinity of the office. My one issue (not really an issue for me, but may be for some) was the fluctuating water temperature in the shower. Try to shower at an "off" time and it shouldn't be a problem. But FYI, 8am is a rollercoaster of shower temperatures ;)

It's very near downtown ellsworth, only 20 mins away from acadia or bar harbor. I thought it was set far back enough from the road; I didn't hear the traffic at all. Many of the other motels I saw in the area were sitting right on the road. Plus AAA discount! I'm glad I picked Twilite and I'll stay here again next time I visit Acadia.

Have stayed at the Twilite several times. It has the friendliness of a B&B, without the noise and impersonality of a name brand hotel. Rooms are clean and have everything you need, and breakfast on the veranda is very pleasant, and far enough away from the highway that you feel like you are in a friend's garden. Look forward to staying there again.

Clean, reasonable, and well run motel just west of downtown Ellsworth and a half hour from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Very clean rooms. Continental breakfast included. A number of restaurants available within 5 miles of the motel.

The Twilite Motel is clean with a good breakfast. Ariela and Chuck are super friendly and add to the down home flavor. This is a good place to stay for a quick trip to Mt. Desert Island at a lower price. This is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Call the motel and save $10 over making a reservation on line!
