We stayed in the Motel one night and the Precipice Room for two nights in July (note, if the website says, "Call" about your dates, then they have space, they just have to split you between rooms. Moving between rooms is easy! You put all of your belongings together and they move them for you when your room is ready so you can enjoy Acadia!).
Overall - Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms with kind, knowledgeable staff. The staff recommended awesome restaurants to go to - from sandwiches to pizza to lobster to ice cream (which is really needed because there are a lot of options and each time we used Yelp to select a restaurant on our own, we were disappointed). Nice things to eat, but I felt like they may have been box mixed (the cookies and scones were missing that buttery homemade flavor; the cake and scones had this spongy texture… but I'm a foodie. My kids loved it). The sitting area out front is incredibly comfortable - my girls loved sitting in the swing. They accept kids! Is it expensive in the prime tourist season? You bet, but it is in a beautiful, quiet area that only gets tourists for 4-5 months, so I think of it as the rooms are really half the price, but we pay for a night in the cold winter months to keep the place open (and I'd like to keep this place open!).
The Motel - Clean, comfortable beds, but needs some TLC. The sink counter had a hole in it. The chair had a hole in it. The line to hang wet clothing in the bathroom was broken. That said, it overall really did look nice and it was clean. Fine for our family of 4 - but we only spent sleeping time there - the park is too beautiful to stay in a room! We had a ground floor room - it was comfortable with just the window open.
The Precipice Room - My girls called it "The Princess Room" - beautiful room. Comfortable beds - clean - no holes anywhere. It was plenty of space for our family of 4. We had to bribe my girls with the beach to get them to leave the Princess Room each day. Since it is on the 3rd floor, we had an A/C unit to keep the room comfortable.
Recommendation - put out the little half-and-half containers with the coffee machine in the foyer so we don't have to use powdered creamer.
