Reviewed 28 September 2013

Reminded me of traveling with my parents as kids in the 70's...small, family friendly....exceptionally clean. Location was excellent for getting around the town. Inn keepers were gracious and helpful.
I would recommend this to anyone!

We were extremely impressed and happy with the Highbrook. It was the cleanest room we have ever stayed in anywhere. The room looked and felt more like a room in a B&B than a motel, very nicely appointed and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful, and the staff was so friendly, helpful, and attentive! Loved our stay there and we will stay there again!

Stayed at the Highbrook three nights. We had a deluxe room in the units up the hill. The room was the largest of our two-week trip. There were two sinks - one separate from the tub and toilet, a heater in the bathroom, a large flat screen TV mounted on the wall, windows that opened for fresh air, a screen door in front of the main door and, the best invention of all, a sturdy knee-high wooden slab for two suitcases. I was confused by the grab and go breakfast. I thought that you chose either the grab and go or a sit-down breakfast. Grab and go is the only breakfast option. While large, it consists of commercial products and as my wife remarked, "They can say they fed us." The staff is very helpful and generous in their recommendations and help with everything. They even sold postcard stamps. The large parking lot allows you to pull back and turn around without worry. The location is slightly north of the town. You could walk, but we took the car. The room was super clean. Great place.

Lovely motel, great peaceful location, clean and very comfortable rooms.

During our trip we stayed in chain hotels but this motel was much better with personal touch.

The only motel in the area with no vacancies -for a reason.

Bar harbour area is fantastic, so much to see. The highlight of our 17 day trip.

I booked a deluxe king room for $144.45, but we were told at check-in that we had been upgraded to a mini suite. We were in room 25, located in the 2nd building. It sits just behind the main building, & is more secluded. Absolutely no road noise. The mini suite was located in the curve, so we did not have a front window, but did have a large rear window, looking out into a wooded area. The attention to detail is impressive. Plenty of lighting. Shade over the door window. Portable fan, plenty of towels, coffee maker, refrigerator, ironing board, hair dryer, etc. Also, this is one of the cleanest rooms I've ever seen. Look under the bathroom sink & in the corners, there is no dirt build-up. I opened a couple of windows & the window sills were clean. If I could have reached the top of the door frames, I would have checked those also, and I'm sure they would be dust free, as well. The front office is well prepared to direct you to tours, restaurants & Acadia National Park. There is plenty of competition for your business in Bar Harbor, so they must impress, & impress the did!

Room Tip: Building 2 is more secluded with no road noise.

Loved our stay at the cozy Highbrook Motel. I have stayed in many places and this by far was one the cleanest places with very friendly staff. The grab and go breakfast was perfect. Beautiful grounds and the perfect location. We normally stay at chain hotels, this was way better. If you are ever in Bar Harbor, this is the place to stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was just wonderful. The grounds are peaceful and well kept. Our room was very clean and quite large. Loved the Highbrook and would stay again in a heart beat!
