Reviewed 7 September 2012

We chose the Highbrook based on the reviews here and found it to be as clean, comfortable, and convenient as others had reported. We had a late-breaking change and Adam was very helpful to us. Our room was generously sized and we enjoyed the ability to sit outside our room in the morning with our coffee. The location relative to Acadia was ideal and I hope we'll have a chance to return soon.

Rooms are larg, very clean and quiet. Good setup for breakfast and I like the fact it is family owned and operated. It is a bike ride to Acadia and nice walk to town

The Chart Room restaurant has a comfortable outdoor deck with good food,

Over the years we have stayed at dozens of small motels and hotels up and down the Maine Coast. I can't say enough about our stay at the Highbrook Motel in Bar Harbor. The rooms were quiet, spacious, comfortable, and exceptionally clean. The packages offered by the Highbrook are the best values in the business. Although the motel is a mile outside of the village, the Island Explorer bus that runs in the summer, picks you up and drops you off at the bottom of the driveway, eliminates the hassle of parking in downtown. There's no pool, no hot tub, and no fitness center so this might not be the place for families with small active children. Adam and his family have made sure that your stay at the Highbrook will be an enjoyable and comfortable one.
I will not hesitate to recommend The Highbrook Motel to anyabody coming to MDI or Bar Hardor.

We came to Maine in the spring and happened upon this motel through TripAdvisor, and were delighted. We came back again in August and would not consider anywhere else. The location is perfect for biking into Acadia or walking down to Bar Harbor. It is quiet and clean, with friendly staff and a good breakfast.

My friend and I were pleased with this motel. The room was large and clean. The breakfast was OK for a continental and convenient for starting the day. The bed was comfortable. And the price was right for the area.

Large, very clean rooms at a very reasonable summer price, with most of the amenities you would want (don't need a pool in Maine) that is on the free (thank you L.L. Bean) island shuttle to downtown Bar Harbor.

I hesitate to provide this rating ONLY because I want to keep this lovely motel a secret ! We have stayed at the Highbrook several times and feel that it is truly a "home away from home". The staff of this family-owned business couldn't be more helpful or accomodating. Any request we have ever made has been responded to immediately and always with a smile. In a time when great service is hard to find, the Highbrook is exceptional. The rooms are immaculate, warm and welcoming, large, and comfortable. The beds and the upholstered chairs are a welcomed sight at the end of the day. The location is central to both the town and Acadia National Park. It is reasonably priced. We enthusiastically look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but we prefer the second building just a little up the hill. It is tucked...
