Reviewed 7 June 2014

The room was comfortable, clean and conveniently located. It wasn't quite as close to town as I thought it would be but you could reach a trail into Acadia from the back of the property which was nice. There was a patio area off our room which would be great to have a family/friend gathering. There was a nice pool and playground although it was too cold when we were there. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have been recently renovated so you might want to ask for one of those.

We booked this motel because of it's location to Acadia NP and because of it's reasonable price. We were extremely pleased with our choice! The motel units each consisted of four rooms per unit and our group of seven adults took up all but one room in the unit. Because of the beautiful woods setting you feel like there's no one else around. The rooms were spacious, VERY clean, neat, with excellent heating and cooling units in each room. All appliances in the room were updated and in excellent working condition. There was even a heating fan in the bathroom! Which is necessary for people from the South in early June in Maine. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in giving directions and suggestions on places to eat and things to do while we were in Acadia. Aaron even brought us a WiFi booster during our stay so we could get better reception. There was also a new staff person training while we were there from the Ukraine and he was so efficient with his cleaning and stocking of the breakfast bar that I thought he would wear himself out the first day. The breakfast fare was great and the chocolate muffins were wonderful! I would highly recommend people visiting the Bar Harbor/Acadia area to forego those overpriced chain hotels and stay a few nights at the Bar Harbor Motel instead.

Room Tip: We stayed in a unit about half way thru the complex. If you want to be closer to the main office and...

I'm always pleased when reviewers like yourself specifically mention staff members that went out of their way to make your stay more pleasurable. We feel very fortunate to have Bohdan with us and handling breakfast. He is an extremely hard worker and keeps the breakfast area neat and clean before, during and after breakfast while continuing to replenish the food so that the bowls are never empty. Truly, a marvel. And Aaron, at the front desk, defines professionalism while at the same time making the customers feel welcome and like family. It is a unique combination of skills and Aaron makes it look easy. It's not. Thank you again for your kind words.

My family and I stayed here for two days before the Memorial day weekend. We had a family suite which was very spacious and comfortable. The front desk staff are nice and caring. The rooms were clean and the location itself was bery beatiful. It was a 6 min drive to Bar Harbor.

First, the staff is exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The room is immaculate and spacious. Loved the location; quiet and just a hop, skip away from the town. Place was hopping during Memorial Weekend. Only downfall was the breakfast: weak coffee, watery juices and green uneatable bananas. Still, I would definitely return the next time I'm in Bar Harbor.

Thanks for the kind words. The machines that dispense the coffee and juices were calibrated by the tech who brought them. Only after you stayed did we realize they had been set incorrectly. It was our fault that we assumed it had been done properly. Shame on us. And let me apologize to you personally for the bad taste (or rather tastelessness) it left in your mouth. It should be fine now for any future guests and if you yourself come back. Have a good summer.

The family suites are perfect! A great property in a prime location, with easy access to all points of the island. Staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are in great shape and clean. We would certainly stay here again.

Our weekend couldn't have been more enjoyable in Bar Harbor, thanks in part to the wonderful staff and property at the Bar Harbor Hotel. The atmosphere was perfect for our kids. They were able to run around, swing, swim, and bike all over the property. They were received with smiles by the staff at every turn. Aaron was especially wonderful! We unloaded our bikes from the car when we arrived and didn't need to load them up again until we left Maine, as the property connects to a trail leading right to Acadia. It was perfect! Our family will definitely return to this lovely property.

Everyone on the staff came up to me after your family and friends left and told me how much they enjoyed seeing all the kids running around and playing. It really lifts your spirits when you see young (and old) people laughing and having a great time. Without sounding too sappy I do think this property has some "essence" that brings out the kid in all of us. Thanks for choosing us and we hope to see you all again in the near future.
