“This is a great motel in a great location!”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

This motel was clean, reasonable (great to have two bedrooms--one for the kids), and only a mile from Acadia entrance. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Bar Harbor. There is a heated pool and playground for the kids. The lobby offers games/toys, juice in morning and coffee, tea and hot chocolate all day long! Rooms have small refrigerators.

Room was clean. The location is great with a bike barn near the pool and immediate access to Acadia park bike trails just above the motel. Rates were decent. Front desk staff great. In short, I can't picture other hotels in the area being better if your goal is a family trip.

Friendly staff, from check-in and throughout our stay. Quiet location with easy access to town via the frequent bus service which we used every day. Rooms clean and spacious. Trail connects to carriage roads for hiking and biking (though we didn't see the deer and her babies!). Swimming pool was a great success with the kids. Free coffee/tea/hot choc all day and juice in the mornings much appreciated too. We'll certainly be back when we visit Bar Harbor again.

What a great find!!! Loved the clean, crisp family presentation of this little motel! The grounds were well maintained, rooms well maintianed, reception area manned by sweet folks and had very welcomed coffee and juice in the mornings!! Staff always eager to help guests And with a bus stop right out front w/ free fabulous Park Service bus..you are off to anywhere and no car needed on the entire island, if you prefer!
Had req'd a quiet end room as units are in quads as well as king if any cancellations on those. They weren't able to do the king, but placed us in a very quiet end room towards back of property. Motel is very family oriented, although it was just hubby and I, that's fine too!
There was a lovely heated pool located near check in area and I noticed a laundry room for those who needed

On top of all that..a bike shed to store the rented bikes each nite and most days we set off on a trail at back of property right into the heart of Acadia NP and their wonderful quiet, cinder Carriage trails! 5-8 mins max to reach Carriage trail entrance.
If you got to tired after long day or as we found after a wonderful meal at Jordan Pond House in heart of NP, we tossed bikes on front of bus at that stop and rode back for free...you do have to change buses in Town Greene of Bar Harbor, but no delays..ever!
Staff hit homeruns with local..hole in the wall..joints we wanted to eat at! Sent us to Thurstans Lobsters down island in Bernard, ME..20 min drive or bus access. Picturesque family run joint on a beautiful harbor full of lobster boats at sunset. Couldn't ask for anything more! Second nite I was hungry for italian and both ladies at the front desk replied same place..Mama Dimatteos. yu-m-mm italian and seafood! And a staff breakfast reccommendation in Ellsworth, ME on our way outta town was spot on too! We will stay here again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: neighbors can be heard next door as these are older but very clean and tidy units. Asked for end uni...

Our family of 5 stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom family suite. What a great family value! The suite was spacious and clean. It is an older property and furnished as a typical motel. The room was well maintained and the beds comfortable. The property was quiet and pleasant. No breakfast is offered; however, they have complimentary coffee all day, and juice in the morning. What makes this property truly memorable is their excellent staff. Every interaction we had with the staff was a pleasure. They helped us in numerous ways, and they welcomed us like family when we walked in the door. The hotel facilities were good, but the staff was truly excellent.

We loved our stay at the Bar Harbor Motel. The king-sized bed room was small, but spotlessly clean. (Double bed rooms are much more spacious). The location was great - very convenient to town and Acadia National Park. The motel was peaceful and quiet and beautifully maintained.

The one complaint I would mention was that the mattress pad on the bed had a plastic/rubber layer which made sleeping very hot/sticky and loud (the plastic layer rustled/crinkled a lot).

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family unit with our 20 year old children and it was perfect! It is family run and there was always a cheery face to answer any questions. So much to do in this area that we will have to go back. It is only about a mile from Bar Harbor and along a free bus route. We rented bikes in Bar Harbor one day and rode the carriage trails. Another day we hiked Precipice trail. Both fantastic days. Hanniford grocery store was close for breakfast supplies and refreshments since we had a frig in the room. Little Notch Bakery had the best sandwiches and cookies for packing a picnic while hiking. It opens at 7:30 am. Beautiful vacation spot! Also liked the laundry facilities!
