My wife and I toured New England for the two weeks September 23rd to 7th October 2013 to view the fall foliage. We travelled from Boston up to Bar Harbor, across to the White Mountains, down through Vermont, the Adirondacks and onto the Berkshire Hills. We selected our accommodation and eating places from Trip Adviser Reviews. We have reviewed each of the hotels, motels and bed and breakfast places that we stayed in and also many of the places we ate and drank in along the way.

We stayed at the Acadia Sunrise Motel at Trenton, just outside the Acadia National Park for two nights. The Motel is within easy reach of the Acadia National Park, which we toured for a day. The Motel is very reasonably priced. The manager Roy is very welcoming and helpful. We had a problem with the rental car and he allowed me to use the office phone to call Alamo as the phone in our room did not work.
Good points:- The Motel is quite cheap, is located near to the Acadia National Park, the manager was friendly and helpful and it appears that there had been some refurbishment to the bathroom. The room and sheets were clean and there was a fridge and microwave supplied. Free Coffee is available from the office.
Negative points:- We had room 23, which despite the numerous notices indicating that it was a Non Smoking Room, the carpets and soft furnishings in the room reeked of smoke and made my wife cough. Roy informed me that the carpets and bedding were old and had probably been there since before it became a non smoking room. The blanket on the bed had cigarette burns in it. Some of the furniture was in need of replacement. (See photos) Despite being near to the National Park the Motel itself is a good 10 minutes drive from any eating places.
Despite the good service, we have given the Acadia Sunrise Motel a low rating because of the problem with the smoke residue and the need to replace the furniture.
We would not stay at this motel again.
