We stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel from 7/4/14-7/11/14. We had to change our travel dates due to a family wedding, and the hotel was extremely helpful and accommodating. Hurricane Arthur hit late Friday night and we lost power all day Saturday. The hotel staff was very helpful in finding places to eat off of the island while they had power. The weather the rest of the week was perfect, warm days and cool nights. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay, especially the night staff, Aaron and Gina (our kids loved them!) The rooms and grounds were immaculate and the pool was a blast. Always full of clean towels and lawn chairs (the water was warm and clean, too!) The continental breakfast was plentiful featuring assorted cereals, bagels, english muffins, hard boiled eggs, and fruit. We loved that there was coffee, tea, and juices available in the lobby all day. The bus to downtown Bar Harbor picks you up right out front of the motel and runs every 15 minutes. It was a 10 minute bus ride (2 minutes by car) to downtown and lot easier than finding parking downtown. We would highly recommend the Bar Harbor Motel, we cannot wait to come back and stay again!

Room Tip: If you have kids that will use the playground, ask for rooms 110-113 and you will see the playground...

My kids and I stayed here for two nights on our first visit to Bar Harbor/Acadia NP. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. We loved the layout of the motel--the various buildings made it feel more like a campground than a motel. The breakfast was a nice option, and we loved the pool and playground. The shuttle service made it really easy to get into town, too. The only downside was my mattress, which was way too soft.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the patio rooms, which are in the back of the complex near the park.

My and my family from Philly LOVED this place. The rooms were awesome, clean, and original. We had a one bedroom type place. All rooms are on bottom floor in little spread our sections throughout the grounds. Great setup. We had a room that was way back near the entrance trail to Acadia National Park. So nice and quiet. We loved the pool too. Also had free WiFi and free breakfast. Highly recommend for a family. It's Location is a shirt 3 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor were you can stroll the many shops and restaurants near the harbor. Loved this area. Want to live there now.

Room Tip: So much to do in Acadia. Just GO!! you will love it all, I promise!! All rooms are good here, just...

If you move here we'll lose a repeat customer! All kidding aside, I've had scores of guests over the years so fall in love with this area that they eventually settle here. If that's your wish we hope it comes true. For those of us who do live here we already know (and agree with you) how special Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island are.

Stayed here 3 nights and had one of the family suites in the back of the property which is very quiet. Rooms are large, comfortable and the place is very clean. Not luxurious, but just right for what we needed. The breakfast is pretty good for continental (kids loved the chocolate muffins!) and it was great that the coffee/juice/milk was available all day with the dining room open. The staff is very nice and helpful with any questions about the area. Pool was okay, we visited it only once due to time constraints. Only negative is that the wifi was pretty weak in our room.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor Motel. It feels very different from the typical motel because the rooms are grouped in units of 4-6, spread out spaciously throughout the grounds, interspersed with green space and trees. The trail access to the carriage roads was very convenient, as was the Island Explorer bus stop, right in front of the motel. The staff were tremendously helpful and breakfast was a tasty spread. We appreciated use of the breakfast area at other times, and the picnic tables by the community swings. We highly recommend the family suite" layout - how nice to have 2 rooms.

It really is a "lovely setting" here. The motel and grounds just vibrate a relaxed, comfortable space where guests feel as though they are not just on vacation, but on holiday.

This motel is in a great location with a helpful and friendly staff. They have a nice swimming pool and a little playground area for young children. It's located only a few min drive to the waterfront, shops and restaurants and only a few min to Acadia. Appeared as if room had been recently renovated. Place is clean and well maintained. I have no complaints and would recommend it to anyone.

I have been going to Bar Harbor since 1996 and stayed at the same B&B all those years. However, in 2010 the innkeeper passed away and the property was sold this past spring. My husband and I thought we would never find a place as nice. Glad we were wrong! From the front desk, to the funny guy (Brendon) who managed the breakfast room to the ladies who cleaned our room were truly FABULOUS! WE WILL BE BACK! Thank you for making us feel so welcome.
