Acadia Pines Motel
Ranked #29 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2014

The Acadia Pines was a very nice motel. It was much cheaper than other local motels so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. Great place to stay without spending a fortune. Would definitely recommend it to others. Nice bonus is the mini-golf course, BBQ place and ice cream shop all within walking distance. Short drive to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

The Acadia Pines Motel was one of the best motels/hotels I have ever been to. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the scenery was spectacular. There was an outdoor pool which at night was quiet and serene and was kept open until 11 p.m. allowing for a late night swim with the family. The motel is surrounded my woodlands and allows for an authentic Maine experience. Around the motel also included a beautiful gazebo decorated with flowers and benches for sitting and also a picnic area with 3-4 picnic tables. The rooms are very nice and includes kitchenettes which helped decrease the cost of food since we just brought our own and cooked it in the room rather than spend more money on eating out every time we wanted to have a meal. The beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was always clean and stocked with new soap and towels everyday.

Close to everything in Bar Harbor! Only 3 mins from Park entrance! Pool warm and enjoyable. Staff is helpful and friendly. This was a very good hotel and I would definitely stay there again! I hope that this is the first place you consider on your trip to bar harbor.

We stayed here couple of times during the last few years. It was a good place for a budget travel. But on our recent stay, we observed a decrease in the quality of the Hotel. We probably may not choose this place again.

Our family of 14 invaded Acadia Pines Motel for 4 days over the 2013 MDI Marathon weekend. We were totally happy with our stay. We were upgraded to family and kitchen rooms so that we could all be close. The owners and staff were amazingly friendly and made our stay feel like we were at home. The kitchenettes are completely stocked. The grounds are very welcoming and a great pool for all the family.

I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 rating overall.
Think I'll try to look for a different place to stay next time in Acadia.

About 20 minutes drive from Bar Harbor and main Acadia attractions.

Pros:
Reasonable price comparing to other motels and hotels.
Nice staff; we received a free room upgrade because they had free better rooms.
Spacious rooms.

Cons:
Not very clean (found somebody's sock in our room; piece of hair; spiders on the door warmly greeted us). Not too dirty, either.
Needs renovation...

We visited Bar Harbor, Maine in the middle of September. Acadia National Park is absolutely beautiful! The L.L. Bean free transportation system was amazing, and left the driving to the operator and allowed us to take in gorgeous scenery. We enjoyed many a meal at Mainely Meat...huge lobster dinner for 14.50 and located right through the pines from our perfect motel! We stayed at the Acadia Pines Motel...it is an older motel with nice big rooms, comfy beds, equipped kitchen and lots of personality. Karen and her grands were great....nothing fancy here, but just what you needed after a day of hiking and sightseeing....the price was perfect, too. The weather was wonderful, and the people friendly too....Bar harbor was a fun trip for the harbor and the shops....met lots of people from all over the world here....

Room Tip: This is not for the person who requires pampering....just clean, comfortable and a great price.
