My mother and I stayed two nights at a room in the small motel portion while spending time in Acadia. Our room was nice and we appreciated the coffee, donuts, muffins, and pastries available in the morning for breakfast. Staff was friendly. The location was good, with easy access to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and several other parks, attractions, and many lobster restaurants. The only thing we had a problem with was very slow wireless Internet.

Thank you for your review. Our slow internet has just become an issue within the last 2 months. We upgraded our modem and router hoping that would help, but it has not. I think there are just too many devices these days with internet connectivity that our system cannot handle the load anymore. Next season we will be upgrading the service to accommodate this issue. We appreciate your comments.

What a lovely motel. It was so pleasant to have grass outside. The cabin had a great TV, cute, homey touches--even had blue checked sheets. The price was wonderful too and it was very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Isleview for four days and were very satisfied. The hotel rate was very reasonable. Plus, the rooms were clean and quite. The Bar Har Loop bus stops right outside the door and is central to several very good lobster pounds. We would definitely stay there again.

We spent one night here in a motel room on a last minute booking and were glad to benefit from a web-booking discount via the motel's website and a further discount for paying by cash. Consequently we had a good rate for a nice motel room.

The room itself is not huge but there was just about enough space for the two beds, fridge, TV, etc. A couple of chairs (no table) took up some room so one of our cases had to sit by the main door which was a little awkward but not a big deal. The bathroom was a slight weakness - it's quite small and oddly laid out. But it was clean and met our needs for a short stay.

The size was offset by the character of the room - a pleasant change from most motel rooms - with wood panelling and a few little decorations making the room feel much more homely than most motels. The beds were comfortable and the sheets and pillows were particularly soft. Despite being on the main road, we weren't disturbed by traffic noise during the night.

Breakfast was fine with tasty pastries although a hot option (even if just toast or toasted bagels) would have been appreciated. The Wifi was good but slightly erratic so a little slow at times.

The location is great, being on the main road in and out of Acadia which was the main purpose of our trip and with a couple of lobster shacks within walking distance.

Check in was very efficient, but almost too much so - there was no effort at any conversation or engagement which surprised me as this appears otherwise to be a small, independently run operation. There was plenty of local information available in reception, however, which gave us pointers on where to eat and things to do.

Overall this is a charming place and somewhere we would return to despite little weaknesses in certain areas - I'd certainly recommend it for anyone who wishes to support independent businesses and/or is fed up with the usual boring motel rooms.

Thank you for your review, it helps future travelers decide on their bookings. We are glad that you were happy with the price and cleanliness. We do offer a small breakfast in the morning of pastries, muffins, donuts with coffee, tea and OJ. We do not promote this as an amenity so that guests won't expect a full breakfast, if anything at all. We previously had toasters with bread and jam but unfortunately guests decided to use us as a grocery store and make their lunch sandwiches or actually take the whole loaf for their own use, I would find myself suddenly out of 2 loaves of bread in an hour! For the past 2 years we have been on the fence on whether to offer any breakfast service at all, as several of our budget competitors have stopped this practice. We will continue to monitors guests comments. Thanks again.

Budget rooms are pretty cramped - def cannot hide a third person in there. It's cheap which is great. And really clean! (thanks housekeeping!) Ideal if you weren't planning on spending any time at the facility except to sleep. Free wifi and free continental breakfast that included coffee, juice, donuts, muffins, and pastries. Bed wasn't super great but sheets smelled wonderfully clean. Don't forget your toothbrush/toothpaste because they don't provide you with these.

Room Tip: Budget rooms are extremely small. Get a cottage if you want a little more room.

We are glad you found the room clean and enjoyed the free Wi-fi and breakfast. The Budget rooms are small and it is noted on the website so you know you are paying a lower price for a smaller room. More room and/or amenities are available in cottages or motel rooms. As far as providing toothbrush/toothpaste; I can say in all my travels in the US and abroad, including the higher end Bellagio in Las Vegas, I have never been in a hotel that provided these, especially a budget priced motel such as Isleview.
