“Great stay near Bar Harbor”
Reviewed 4 September 2014

Our family of 5 had a great stay in the Bar Harbor Motel, using the motel as a great base from which to visit the town, see Accadia and see the area. Their breakfast was good with variety and well-stocked. The employees at the front desk were very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious.

Very clean motel. We used laundry, which was pretty good. Convenient shuttle bus to downtown Bar Harbor (we used it both nights) raised it to very good. And reasonably priced. Pool area is very nice. Staff was helpful and knowledgeable.

We agree. The Acadia Shuttle is a very useful tool for getting into and out of Bar Harbor and for traveling to other parts of the island and the national park, and it regularly stops right in front of out motel. Thanks for the gracious review.

We stayed four nights and were very happy with the location and how helpful the staff were and the great breakfast. We have been going to Bar Harbor for more then ten years and this is for us the best place we have found all things considered.

Room Tip: Staying close to the office makes going to breakfast easier.

Great location, convenient to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. Free bus service to and from these areas made it very convenient. Complimentary breakfast was decent. The rooms were clean but very basic. The bathroom sink and vanity were open to the bedroom which did not allow for privacy. The pool was great. All in all I would recommend this motel, especially to families as it was very affordable.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a room where the bathroom sink is not part of the bedroom, for privacy. There are al...

Thank you for your review. As a note to other readers, some of our bathrooms have the sink outside the shower area, most do not. If it is important to you to have the sink in the bathroom please ask when you make your reservation and we will accommodate that.

There was great value in the price versus quality of room, hotel location etc. Aaron at the front desk was very knowledgeable about the hotel and area. This was one of 6 locations service by the free, frequent bus service to city center.

Room Tip: Top of the hill has minimal hotel traffic, access to carriage roads

We stayed for two nights in Aug 2014 in a large two room unit. The beds were comfortable and rooms were cleaned. Staff was VERY friendly. They had tea, coffee or lemonade in the lobby at all times. Breakfast was nice and fresh: hardboiled eggs, yougart, blueberry muffins, bagels (blueberry), toast, english muffins, cereal, coffee, tea, juice. Location was nice and quite but a little too far too walk to town, we took the car and always found parking in town.

The manager is a gem. His advice was always perfect and helped make our Bar Harbor stay as nice as we could wish. His staff are pleasant and helpful. They rate far more than five! The motel itself is just yards from the entrance to the national park--very convenient.

We're glad you had a pleasant stay with us. All the credit for that stay goes to the staff. Housekeeping does a tremendous job keeping the rooms clean, the maintenance staff works hard keeping the grounds and pool spiffy and the front desk with their courteous, familial demeanor (yet always professional) welcomes and keeps the guests happy and pleased with their stay. Thanks for noticing their effort and for letting others know of your positive experience.
