My wife and I stayed here to visit Acadia National Park. We didn't spend alot of time in the room. It was adequate, decent breakfast, fridge had leftover water in it and smelled, and bathroom was tiny. But we were able to hike straight from the property into Acadia and on the way, saw a couple of deer. Grounds are nice and seemed like a nice pool although it was too cold to go outside. I would stay here again.

We really enjoy staying here. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bike shed is a great asset, we never have to worry where to leave the bikes. The room was very clean and comfortable. We would recommend this motel to everyone.

Spent two days in Oct 2012 and the staff was excellent. Had a car key lost in the downtown area
and turned into the police. Pat, at the hotel, drove us to the police station to retrieve the key.
There is a convenient shuttle at the entrance to the hotel that goes downtown. The one bedroom
was small, but clean and very liveable. We bought a package deal and the food was excellent
at all locations. The bus tour of Acadia National Park was very nice. We would recommend
anyone to stay at this Motel. The overall property was well kept and very beautiful. Close to
hiking trails.

My husband, daughter and I stayed at this motel for the second time. We stayed in a smaller room (in 2008 we stayed in the two bedroom). The motel is convenient to the bus stop, now has a free breakfast and also has a nice pool area. But overall, I would say it is an average property. Good for family visits and a decent price; but, nothing spectacular.

We had a very good stay at The Bar Harbor Motel and would definitely go back. We asked for a quiet room and true to their word we got a quiet unit right at the back of the property. Indeed there was no one else in our block until the weekend and even then no one was put in the room adjacent to ours at all. So the management really paid attention to our request.

Being at the back/ top of the property also meant we got to see deer wandering around which was fantastic.

We thought the room standard was very good and also felt that the cleaning of our unit was also good.

Breakfast was a bit of a scrum, with fewer tables than guests, so we tendered to walk down and take stuff back to our unit. We didn't mind the walk at all and, of course,it was our choice to do this and also be in a unit up the top.

An added bonus was the free bus into town which stops at the entrance to the property. We used this a couple of times. Also, as a guest of the motel you could also take advantage of the kids' movies being shown on the next door hotel 's lawn twice a week.

Swimming pool was good as well for small kids. So all in all we had a very  good stay and would go back.

We sent a week at the Bar Horbor Motel in early September. This is the second time we have stayed their. The rooms were nice, very clean. Great pillows. The staff was very helpful. I had a problem with my vehicle and asked the front desk if they had a machanic that they could send me to. They told me that their mantance man was a car machanic and they sent him up to our room when he came in. He was able to help with the problem. They added a continental breakfast since our last stay. The only problem was that the toasters were very slow. They had homemade biskets that were FANTASTIC. The FREE bus to down town Bar Harbor stopped right in front of the motel. We will stay here again when we go to Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: ask for a room near the entrance to the trail to the park. Very quiet and you may see a deer at dus...

This motel was a great value compared to other properties in Bar Harbor. The room we stayed in was 206. The bathroom has recently been completely updated, except for the mirror. The bathroom and the room was clean, and had recently been updated. The room was small, but ample for two people. The bed was firm, but could have used two more pillows as the ones provided were quite flat. The king room had a dresser, two night stands, one table with two stuffed chairs. The lighting was good and they used compact fluorescent energy saver bulbs. It took me awhile to figure out how to turn on the heat, and it blew right at we on the right side of the bed. The staff was very attentive, we were able to check in early, and were very friendly. The breakfast was average. It included, muffins, bagels, hard boiled eggs, cereal, juice, coffee, apples, etc. Since I don't eat eggs, another protein choice would have been nice.

Room Tip: Our room was in the back of the building, parked in the front, and entered in the back. This worked...
