“Excellent location !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

This was our first trip to Acadia so we were sure what to expect we wanted to stay a little away from bar harbor but be close enough to make frequent trips...We couldn't have a chosen a better location and cleaner motel than high seas..You can't see the bar or walk from the hotel to the bar but then we wanted to also stay a little away from the crowds and the cars so this was perfect and it was only a few min drive to the bar harbor where we could walk , shop and dine. It was perfect...!!!

Pool, grounds and the rooms were extremely well maintained...

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

First hiking trip to Acadia in 23 years of annual hiking trips all over US and Europe. Absolutely loved High Seas. Reasonably priced, quieter because it wasn't downtown Bar Harbor (and our room was at the back away from the highway), double room was very spacious, motel in great location for going anywhere on Mt. Desert Island, staff was friendly and helpful, AND it was absolutely the cleanest and most polished motel I've ever stayed. Room, buildings and grounds were maintained with obvious care and pride of ownership.

Room Tip: Motel section at the back, behind the office, was very quiet -- couldn't hear the highway traffi...

We found this hotel to be spacious, very clean, comfortable, friendly and very reasonably priced. We were in close proximity to Acadia and to Bar Harbor. We had people in rooms to both sides of us and our room was very quite. When we return this will be our first choice.

This past weekend (8/23-8/24) was the first time we have stayed at the High Seas. Very nice place and a very friendly gentleman who checked us in. The room was very clean and tidy. The pool on the property was very nice and clean as well. Rate was reasonable for a king room considering it is still summer. I have stayed in Bar Harbor several times at different places and I would say this is one I would recommend staying at.

This is a perfect place to stay when visiting Bar harbor. The ownrs are great. They are very nice and helpful. They recommended 2 restaurants and they were both very good. The motel is very clean. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The grounds are well maintained. There is an outdoor pool. Their prices are very fair. We will stay there next time we are in Bar Harbor.

You can't get more helpful owners/employees to assist you with whatever you need. More towels? No problem. More toiletries? No problem. Advice about where to eat? They'll give you plenty of excellent choices. We have stayed here several times and will be going back again soon. We have yet to use the pool because we've been so busy but we hope to this time. Room is great, fridge, hair dryer -- nice, clean room, Wi-Fi, etc. If you want top of the line, then you're at the wrong place, but this motel is more than terrific for the price. We don't want top of the line -- we want to stay in a place where we know the people at the desk and they know us, where the atmosphere is friendly, and where the rooms are quite comfortable, including a king (our request, there are doubles so you have to ask) with a comfortable mattress. This is our go-to place in Bar Harbor and we expect to stay there each time we go. Thanks to the owners for making this a great place for us to stay. We'll be spending our anniversary there. Looking forward to being there again. This room is more than you can expect. This is NOT a no-frills motel. It has more than enough for anyone. Be advised that while there is no breakfast, it usually works out well because most people are up early to be on a boat or are in Acadia. Besides, there is a terrific breakfast place next door. Check out the Chart Room for dinner -- more pricey but worth it.

Room Tip: If you want to drive up to the door, stay at the back building. If you want to have a porch, stay at...
