If you are looking for clean, convenient location, and reasonably priced this is the place to stay. It is nothing fancy, but the stay was easy and pleasant. It is located right outside the town of Bar Harbor and is the best value for the money that I found in Maine. You will not be disappointed.

This Motel has a number of different room layouts (including 2 bedroom family units) at very reasonable prices, especially compared to the rates of some chain hotels. Access is great, office is right on Rt. 3, the units however are further back, so traffic on Rt. 3 is never an issue. The units are simple, but complete. Most importantly, they are well maintained and very clean. If your lifestyle requires a Minibar or bottled Designer Water for $ 10 per bottle, don't go there. Wrong place! The staff is excellent, very helpful and personable with a great "can do" attitude. The front desk staff will eagerly try to meet customers' requests and expectation. And then the coffee in the lobby! it is simply the best. The coffee alone is a reason to come back. This motel served us, one couple 60+ and one couple 30+ (our Kids) in the most pleasant fashion in an otherwise rather overpriced Tourist Area. We would not hesitatefor a minute to go back! Excellent family value!

Room Tip: The 2 Bedroom Family Units are a great way to provide privacy simiilar to renting 2 rooms (shared ba...

The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is the price, but lodging is very expensive anywhere in Acadia in general. The room was spacious and clean, free WiFi, free tea/coffee in the lobby, nice staff.

I will be booking another trip to Bar Harbor and will definitley stay at the Bar Harbor Motel again - I have stayed there twice before. The best rates, location, service, and convenience. I like the fact that it is privately owned and very personal. As well, I like the fact that you can literally walk to Bar Harbor opposed to taking the Island Explorer. A great setting too. One of the most relaxing and enjoyable facilities to stay at.

Room Tip: Spend the little extra and get the family room (2 rooms). Any location is great because the entire c...

My husband and I moved from a motel in Southwest Harbor to the Bar Harbor Motel and we were glad that we did! We thought the location to Acadia National Park was better than Southwest Harbor. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff was friendly. This was our first visit to the area and we had so many questions about the park, restaurants and activities in the area and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We loved the park and motel so much that we decided to stay an extra day. Our room happended to already have been rented and we would have had to move to another room, which would have been OK, but the staff worked their magic and we didn't have to move. We would definitely recommend this motel.

About 80 beautifuly maintained units over landscaped acres. We found this atmoshere brings out the best in it's guests that makes even nicer. Quiet, clean, friendly, well located, comfortable. I can not say enough to show how this place well exceeded my expetations.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the "new units in he back of the property. They have a coin laundry too.
