“Great location and I plan on being back in July”
Reviewed 7 June 2011

Great location in downtown Bar Harbor and close to Acadia. I stayed in May for an MS bike ride and found the room to be cleaned, which over the past 4 years this is the norm. When we stay in July, we park and never move the auto until we leave. The location isa great for using the Explorer bus. we bike a lot and again this is a great starting location. We use the Explorer bike van to access the carriage roads, also nice location for biking to Sands beach away from the tourists.

Room Tip: We prefer the side side street side

My husband and I have been staying here twice a year for 10 yrs. We had always loved the location and simplicity of the motel. The property is under new ownership and was our first bad experience. The cleanliness of the rooms or lack of, was such a dissappointment. We are not staying here again unless something changes.

CaitlinMeredith, Manager at Bar Harbor Villager Motel, responded to this review, 16 December 2010
First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback for the Bar Harbor Villager Motel. Second, I would like to address your concerns regarding the cleanliness of your room. Not that it is in any way an excuse, but at the time of your stay, we were extremely understaffed and the housekeepers were quite overwhelmed. Please know that your experience was not the norm at all and, if you read our other reviews, the majority of people were very satisfied with the cleanliness of our rooms. In addition, there are already many big changes for the housekeeping department taking place for next year which will hopefully prevent experiences like the one you had. I do hope you will visit us again, as we will be continuing to upgrade the property and will be adding mini fridges to the rooms in the spring of 2011.

We arrived to Bar Harbor a day early. We called the motel, and the super friendly desk staff said it would be no problem to get our room early. The rooms are a little dated, but were still nicely furnished and clean. Our only complaint was that there was no fridge.
The motel is located right on the main street in town. There are loads of bars, restraunts, and shops within walking distance. Two entrances to Acadia National Park are about a ten minute drive away.

The Villager was everything we hoped for when looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor. Walkable to everything we wanted to see and just a short drive to Acadia Park.

Ideal for visiting Boston, the ferry brings you right in the center of the town.
There are very nice living rooms for reading a book or for writing what happened trough the day. Nice breakfast.

It' was the second time I stayed at The Villager, the first being in summer. Everything was perfect, right in the middle of Bar Harbor, at walking distance from restaurants, activities. It is clean, confortable and the rooms are spacious.
