Robbins Motel
Ranked #40 of 41 Hotels in Bar Harbor
Reviewed 23 May 2008

My husband and I were looking for a close-by, inexpensive mini-vacation. When we decided to go to Bar Harbor, ME we thought we'd have to spend most of our budget on the accomodations.

Not only were we able to find information about Robbins Motel on the internet we were very surprised by our satisfaction level during our visit.

The rooms are cozy and clean! It had the feel of a quaint cabin.

Great for couples on a budget.

Although this small family run motel is not in Bar Harbor, it is within a 5 minute drive and you will pay much much less than any lodging in town. It is clean, provides wireless internet (at times sporadic), has coffee in the morning and the owners are down right friendly. If you have a vehicle you will be driving around the island anyways so save yourself some money and give it a try. No, it is not the Ritz but, if your not too picky it will do fine. Their are several restaurants nearby that provide all types of fares. Geez, I think we paid $39.00 a night and how much time are you going to spend in the room? I was surprised on two of the three nights we spent there, they were completely booked up and this was in late September.

We enjoyed this old down home place. Its a one man show with the dog named Cloud and his master Jack who cleans the rooms, paints the building,even does the laundry and gives good "pay in cash" deals. The Robbins has small car parking places but everything else is large enough. We usually come in spring and autumn but they closed this year in middle of October but when you call, the recording says they will open in May next year and are happy to take a reservation.

This motel is a little outdated. It is clean and the owners are friendly. The rooms are SMALL but so is the price. I would stay here again. If you don't need fancy and don't plan to spend anytime in your room anyway, this is the place for you.

The Robbins Motel charges $32.00 for all rooms, except for peak season, where the rates go up to $58.00 for all rooms. The rooms are cozy, neat and clean, and have a heater and air conditioner in each, as well as a tv. One of the things that the wife and I like best about the rooms is the comfort of the beds; there is nothing like a good night sleep. There also is a nice pool to cool off in, or take a late night dip. The hotel is also only about 5.4 miles from down town Bar Harbor, so it`s pretty convienient. If you`re planning to stay in or near Bar Harbor from the last of June, to labor day, you best reserve your room or chances are you will be out of luck. This is really true with Robbins motel, because the rates are low.Now Robbins Motel is not a fancy place, but it is , like I said before is cozy, neat clean and comfortable, with an eager staff willing to help should a guest need anything. The wife and I will be staying there everytime we go to B. H. I highly recommend this Motel! P.S. Look for the quarter on the office step; he probably has it cemented back in place by now.

We actually found Robbins Motel after staying in the Nasty Days Inn for two nights. We passed by and there was a sign $58 and proud to show the room. So we took a look at the room and they were nice and clean not like the Days Inn. This motel is small has a queen size bed, tv, stand up shower, and an alarm clock we didn't even have one in the days inn and we paid $172 there.
Robbins Motel is very close to Acadia Park and to the downtown area of Bar harbor. It was a great place for us because we didn't spend most of our time in our room we were spent it outdoors but wanted a clean place to sleep and Robbins Motel was perfect. The service was great, a light was not working in the room and we told Jack and as soon as we were back in the room it was working. In the office Jack made fresh coffee which he offered to all of his guests. Great Stay for the money!

Very nice little motel. Very reasonably priced. The motel is old, however, it is very clean and cosy. Close to the Acadia National Park entrance, and not too far from downtown (~3) miles. Very nice motel for your money. Strongerly recommended for people who wants to enjoy the beauty and nature of Acadia during the daytime, and wants to find a place to rest in the night.

If you want to spend most of your time in the motel room, go somewhere else.
