“Recommended if..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

This motel is recommended if you are looking for a basic and clean place to sleep, close to the city center and the cheapest in the area. The management is very nice, the morning coffee is good, the location is central, the motel has parking space and it is quiet and safe. Very impressed by the clean environment!

Although the motel is dated, it is spotlessly clean and within 3 minutes walking distance from everything, so no need to hassle with parking. The management was very friendly and helpful, giving me maps of Maine and New England when I asked for the nearest Visitor Info Center. The lighting could be a little brighter, but wasn't bad.

This hotel has a nice location up the street from the downtown Harbor Area so you can walk down for a bite to eat, boat cruise, ice cream, shopping, etc. Motel itself is OK. Nothing fancy and a bit older but clean. If you are looking for something fancy this is not it. It is however, the most reasonable accommodations that we could find within walking distance of down town. There are no views and no amenities. If you are looking for something basic, reasonable and within walking distance of downtown then this is it.

Room Tip: Great Value but nothing fancy. Get a room downstairs if you do not want to walk up stairs. There is...

Not sure what the people with the bad reviews expected but we have had several great stays here. Yes the rooms are not modern fancy rooms but they are clean and comfortable. I have stayed in many places that I would call dives and this surely is not one. For the rate you cannot go wrong. If you want modern fancy rooms with all the trimmings you can stay at any number of overpriced, expensive rooms that will run you over $200 and more. Believe me we have. But if you are looking for affordable and comfortable room in walking distance of all the shops and the harbor, then this is it. A big plus for us is the fact that they have pet rooms and allow you to have you family pet with you. To the best of my knowledge ( and we have really looked around) there is no other hotel in the downtown that does this. There are many if you want to stay on the outskirts of town and drive in and out of town every day. But then you have to look for 2 and 3 hour parking spots in town (if you can find one).
We have stayed her many times now and we would certainly stay again. Don't come here expecting fancy, just a clean comfortable room in the downtown of Bar Harbor.

We enjoyed our stay at the Anchorage very much. Great location! Easy to walk to everything. Spotlessly clean, and a great arrangement for the room. Two luggage racks close to the bathroom and hangars, and the bathroom had a window, so no typical hotel claustrophobia. Plenty of room!

Room Tip: We were on ground floor, so didn't need to walk up stairs.

Why didn't we check trip advisor before we checked into this hotel. It was awful! The beds were rock had and the linens were gross. The bathroom door wouldn't close and the brown paneled walls were nasty. Please trust me, you don't want to stay here for any price!

This so-called hotel is really terrible. The people who run it are anti-hospitality and will make you feel badly from the moment you walk in the door. The rooms are awful. Old beds and linen. No frig, no microwave, no shampoo or conditioner. I guess we are lucky they gave us soap and scratchy towels. The bathroom was absolutely filthy when we checked in. Yuck!
