I had a great experience. This small quaint space is a walk from downtown. Adam was very helpful with suggestions about great places to go. He took care of my whale watch reservation and my reschedule of this reservation. My room was simple but clean. Being near the road can be loud but I turned on the air conditioner 'fan' and was fine...... I would definitely go back!

It's an older motel, but in very good condition and very well maintained. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable, the beds were great and the breakfast also was good. A great value for the price.

We just completed our 4th stay at Highbrook Motel, and just cant say enough good things about our stay--- the staff, the location, the comfortable rooms, the morning breakfast choices, and the room rates are very reasonable when compared to the other choices in the Bar Harbor area.
We ask for the same room each time (an end room in the upper, quieter building), and the staff has always accommodated us. Housekeeping is topnotch also--very efficient and very accommodating.
We will continue to use Highbrook as long as we are able to vacation in the Bar harbor area.

Room Tip: The upper building is much quieter

HIghbrook Motel is reasonably priced, clean, friendly and well located about 15 minutes walking distance from downtown Bar Harbour. We enjoyed everything about our stay, including an extremely good breakfast, great coffee, a screen door and lawn chairs on our porch. We will definitely be coming back.

Really a great place to stay...extremely clean and large room. Family owned and they live on site. Adam, the son, was really helpful and friendly, also met his Mom who was equally helpful and personable. We stayed there June 2014 and definitely will be return customers. Think you will be very pleased with the Highbrook!

Room Tip: Upper bldg a little more private, lower bldg closer to office and breakfast area

We have been staying at the Highbrook for many years now when traveling to Acadia NP for vacation. It is clean, well run, family owned and operated, and has always been a pleasant and relaxing place to stay. I really cannot say enough positive things about our stays there. The accommodations are simple and comfortable. A great place to sit on the porch after a day out in the park and talk with other guests or just relax and contemplate. The Bowden's (owners) are great folks who make everyone feel welcome and are always good to talk with. In short, we like it.

The first best thing about this Motel is the LOCATION. It is super close to downtown Bar Harbor, and if you utilize the backroad directions provided by the staff, it's just as close to the park (close enough to ride your bike) OR you can use the free shuttle which picks up/drops off right next to the Motel.
This motel is CLEAN - and I am very picky about where I stay. The bathrooms were super clean, especially - the white grout in the shower was WHITE, not dingy. This is a family-owned Motel, and the family is SUPER nice and SO helpful and knowledgeable about downtown and the park.
One of the best things about this place, is the front porch. Each room has 2 chairs and a table outside their room on the front porch, and it's perfect for coffee in the morning or a drink a night.
The 'Grab n Go' breakfast was really more than that. The coffee was SO good, and they had bacon, egg & cheese sandwiches on top of bagels, yogurt, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, etc.
We had so much fun, I am so sad our trip is over as this was such a great place to stay. If our travels bring us back to this location, this will be our first choice.
