“Average hotel, but close to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel between August 17th and August 21st. It was fine for our needs since it was very close to a grocery store, some restaurants, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It had all the features we needed (breakfast, free parking, etc). Although, we were disapointed on some points. The housekeeping staff forgot to clean our room for our last night and the front desk staff told us they could do nothing for us since housekeeping only work during the day (no compensation). The housekeeping staff was also very annoying ( knocking at the door between 8h30 and 9AM to clean the room while we were in). The front desk even told us that they did not have extra towels so they had to call maintenance to have some. This is not acceptable in an hotel. The breakfast was also very average (not a lot of choices compared to other hotel brands). The hotel is also pretty old and need some relooking. In general, it is good to visit the area but since the hotel did not compensate us I would recommend trying the new Hampton Inn accross the street if you plan to stay less than 3 days (Ramada has a discount when staying 3 nights or more which is an advantage in the area).

I was on a long motorcycle road trip and got to the hotel 3 hours before check in. The person at the front desk called housekeeping and my room was ready in 10 minutes. The room was fresh and clean. They also offered to let me park my motorcycle under the front canopy so it would be protected from the weather. Later that night we were expecting heavy rains so I went outside to cover my motorcycle (under the canopy) to protect it from blowing wind andrain. At that point the maintenance person offered to store my bike inside the building! The list goes on and on for the great customer service and a great room at a great price. 5 stars in my book!

We had stayed in Bar Harbor the night before and it was very expensive and nothing like we thought it would be. We decided to stay outside of town and maybe get a more reasonable rate. We used my navigation for Holiday Inn and it brought us to the Ramada in Elllsworth which used to be the Holiday Inn. We hit the jackpot! From the time we checked in (the ladies were wonderful) to the room (fantastic) and so reasonable compared to Bar Harbor. This would be another town we would certainly visit if we came back to Maine. Even the breakfast in the morning was great. Clean and such a great variety of food. You could even sit outside in the morning next to a beautiful stream. Could not ask for anything better. It was only about 10-15 minutes from Bar Harbor and saved you so much money. We ended up staying 2 nights.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor. Could not have ask for better.....

Good option for the price if you're visiting Acadia. Centrally located near a grocery store and numerous fast food joints in Ellsworth, this Ramada Inn is rather spread out. Our room on the first floor was quite a hike from the lobby. There were odor issues in several areas of the hotel due to old, dirty carpets (especially in the area leading to the pool and in the lobby). There are many things that need work. However, the pool was rather large and nice, and it was good they also had a 6-person hot tub at one end of the pool. The pool got quite crowded with families and kids as we left it, shortly after dinner time. The cleaning crew of the hotel was always busy and running about in the hallways in the morning; given the seemingly adequate staffing, we were surprised they did such a poor job. We found an empty beer bottle behind a chair in our room the first night we stayed, and other signs that the hotel housekeeping staff did a very cursory job of cleaning to make the room look clean without actually being clean. The breakfast was better than your usual "continental breakfast" served at cheap hotels, in that they had sausage and scrambled eggs along with the usual pastries, bagels, fruit and cereal. Overall, this hotel is not bad if you get a very low price, and if you value the amenities offered and don't mind the distance from Bar Harbor.
