Reviewed 13 November 2013

I stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel for two nights during "foliage season". For the price, I was very pleased with how large the room was and how well-maintained the room and grounds were. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the local attractions, and there's free continental breakfast.

There's also free wifi, but I found the reception in my room to be pretty poor. It was fine in the lobby, however.

Stayed at the BHM while attending a Road Scholar session in Bar Harbor. The motel was comfortable and clean. The staff friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast had great blueberry muffins. This was a basic motel that met our needs to have a comfortable place to sleep as we were away during the day and early evening.

We were visiting Bar Harbor during the Federal Shutdown. Although Acadia was closed we could hike in from the motel. We were happy to stay in this simple and convenient motel that has paths right into Acadia National Park and close to downtown Bar Harbor and across the street from College of the Atlantic.
The motel is set up in a traditional manner with low one story buildings allowing parking right outside your door. There is a pool but it was closed for the season. The paths to Acadia are behind the last building and connect within a short walk put you right onto the park paths. Perfect for snowshoeing, biking or hiking. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Very basic, but all we needed for our quick get away. We noted they have a garage to store bike and kayaks also when you visit. We enjoyed the mini breakfast bar in the lobby with coffee, yogurt, fruit and cereal. We will return.

Our experience here was great, from the helpful information provided at check-in to the clean and spacious rooms. Excellent location for visits to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. We would certainly stay here if we get back to the area.

The Bar Harbor Motel was an excellent place to stay. After a day of touring and hiking I enjoy a nice comfortable place to rest and shower for the next day of adventures and they provided this with great TV to enjoy if you wanted and a nice hot shower. The breakfast provided a good start to your busy day too. You also had access to WiFi and the staff would accommodate almost every need you had. The rooms were very clean and homey. There is also a very nice free bus line that will take yo right into town and the bay area. A very nice easily accessible place to stay. I will return to this Motel in the future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are about the same, they all have a porch with table and chairs. Some are further away...

Our experience at the Bar Harbor Motel was extremely delightful. This was our first visit to this motel and during our next travel to the area we plan to stay again. The staff was courteous and very helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and very accommodating. It suited our needs perfectly. The stand-out feature of this facility was the layout. It had a comfy feel and was not the "dormitory" style resort. The individuality of the layout was much more private. The layout of the grounds was very attractive and family oriented. It is its very own community. I would not stay anywhere else the next time we visit Bar Harbor.

My husband and daughter participate in the MDI Marathon every October. We have chosen to stay at the Bar Harbor Motel for the past seven years. Although the ownership changed a couple of years ago, we have still received the same great, friendly service. They have a nice continental breakfast with muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, cereal and there is always tea and coffee available during office hours. The staff is super friendly and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The grounds are well maintained and the walking trail behind the motel offers some photo ops, especially with the leaves in their fall colours.
