“Comfortable and relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

While visiting Acadia National Park, we stayed here. It was our first time. The bed was perfect and the room was spacious and clean. We loved the breakfast. Although advertised as a "continental breakfast", there were almost too many choices. Gotta love it! It was evident that this motel appeals to different types of people- there were families with kids, mature and business people, and the outdoor-sy tourists. The staff was gracious and helpful. It was a short drive to the center of Bar Harbor and if we didn't feel like driving, the free shuttle made stops here every 15 minutes and would take us right to the commons. We would definitely recommend this motel and would love to return!

It always amazes us when someone notices something that seems obvious but that we didn't realize. The notion that the Bar Harbor Motel appeals to a variety of people has until now escaped our notice. But, of course, you are right. On any given day our guests range in age from just born to young at heart with an incredible variety of visitors from all over the globe. Some just want to sit by the ocean while others want to soar above by climbing the highest peaks. Some spend their day lounging by the pool, others explore Acadia by foot or bike. But each and everyone are seeking a quiet, clean place to rest and sleep and that's what we aim to provide.

We really enjoyed our time staying with the Bar Harbor Motel. Close to downtown with a 10 minute free bus ride, this motel was clean and all staff members were incredibly helpful and kind. We stayed in July and highly recommend if you're looking for a great place to stay.

We were able to get a single room that accommodated 5 of us comfortably. Staff was nicest and most helpful of anywhere on our two week 3000 mile trip. Great free breakfast. It was nice being able to park in front of our door. Kids loved the pool and playground and made friends with other kids. Recommend.

Room Tip: We were at the very back of the property. Wifi and cell service was very spotty. Seemed to change...

Our "family rooms" are unique to Bar Harbor. Two bedrooms (one with a King bed and one with two double beds) sharing a bath between the rooms gives larger families the privacy and quiet you can't get in a standard two-queen with pullout setup. We're glad it worked well for your family and we hope to see you again in the near future.

We stayed for 5 nights and the room was always clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and we ended up eating there 4 out of 5 mornings. My family especially loved the chocolate muffins. The location was convenient to both the town of Bar Harbor and to other places we wanted to investigate. I would definitely stay here again.

Overall the motel was very well kept and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Many choices for breakfast. The only issue I had was with the beds. The matresses were fairly thin and a little uncomfortable. The linens were also very dated. Other than that, I found this motel to be in a very convenient location with a shuttle running continuously throughout the day that brings you into the harbor.

Was very clean and good service, great location. Beautiful wooded area backed up to Acadia Park. Quiet and away from hustle and bustle of town. Rooms are spacious and clean. Have stayed here at least 6 times and would highly recommend it.

We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled in. The motel is in a gorgeous area. I especially liked how the rooms are spaced into different areas, kind of like little "neighborhoods." I rated the rooms a Very Good and not Excellent because the mini fridge didn't work and in my opinion the carpets need changing. And it was a little overpriced, but we did go in PEAK season. Everyone on staff was GREAT! We truly enjoyed our stay. We WILL be back!!
