“Amazing Value!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

The Belle Isle motel is a wonderful, clean, convenient and extremely economical place to stay. It exceeded all of my expectations having a comfortable king bed, clean bathroom, nice sitting area (where we ate fresh cooked lobster) fridge and microwave. The pool looked extremely inviting, had the weather cooperated and I loved the little sitting areas. Despite the fact it is on the main highway into Bar Harbor it is a quiet place and so convenient to get to Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor. We had an absolutely wonderful stay and I can't believe the price we paid. It was all together perfect!! Keep up the good work Belle Isle - we will be back!!

Room Tip: For the price it is worth the upgrade to the larger "double" rooms which have double beds...

We went for the larger two double room for the workspace and were very impressed with the rooms for the price. Did laundry there and really enjoyed our stay, this is a lower priced lower end hotel so it's older but clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: The queen rooms are a little small and don't have micorwaves in the room although there is a mic...

This wonderful motel provided everything my family needed and more. The double rooms we stayed in were a little bigger than your average tiny motel and everything was clean and well maintained. Having a functional refrigerator and microwave was important for us since we staying nearly a week. The rates here are extremely reasonable and the location is still quite good. From here you can get to nice attractions like the Pirate's Cove mini golf and the Atlantic Brewing Company within minutes of driving. Downtown Bar Harbor itself takes about 10-15 minutes.
The proprietors of this motel were extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us at every opportunity. They even made an outdoor fire for us to sit around in the evening. Overall, staying here made the entire trip to Mount Desert Island all the more memorable.

We would highly recommend staying here, it was very clean and spacious, had coffee machine, hairdryer. staff were very friendly and very honnest. We stayed here from the 27th september to 30th September 2012 and the day we left we had driven several miles before pulling into a petrol station for fuel to discover that my Husband had left his wallet behind and when he telphone reception at the Belle Isle Motel, they told him straight away that the cleaner had found his wallet and handed into the receptionist, we would like to say a very special thank you to that person think she was called Pam. It was the 1st three days of a 35 day holiday and we do not know what we had have done if we had not got the wallet back. So a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the front and it was not noisy at all.

This was much better than expected. The room rate was one of the lowest we paid on our trip, but this was one of the best places we stayed. The room was small, but you are not at Acadia National Park to stay in the room. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the hospitality first rate. Easy access to Bar Harbor and the park. Everything about our stay was perfect. Don't pass this up based on the price.

Remembering first of all that this is a motel not a hotel, one can't expect a hotel experience (which I personally believe is better). We found this to be a quaint place with a great location, a very clean room, and a great mattress to sleep on. The water pressure was great (which is always a plus for those of us with thick hair). Even though I never use them - the room did provide a hair dryer and shampoo. The staff was awesome and so helpful in providing any information that we needed. If you are looking for a convenient place to stay for a great price and where people act like they appreciate your business, then I high recommend this motel. Keep up the good work guys!

Upon my stay at the Belle Isle Motel I found it to be one of the best motels I have ever stayed in. First and For most The Owners Darren And Camille are just wonderful. They were so inviting and helped us with anything we needed whether it was directions or something for our room. I have to say that I wasn't the biggest fan of little ma and pa places until I had been here. It is just so much more personable. I have worked in the hotel/motel industry for almost a decade and I can tell you right now the way they run their business is top notch. Most of the time you find with small places like this is that there not always clean. That was the total opposite of what I found here. The rooms were quaint and very very clean. The staff other than Darren and Camille were very polite and friendly. It is close enough to Bar Harbor to just jump in the car and go but far enough away where you don't hit any of that downtown local traffic. Their grounds person/maintance man must keep up with the property regularly seeing how it was always looking good. They are doing some remodling/construction but none of it bothered me or my group and from what I understand they are remodling to better serve their clientel! I would recommend this motel to anyone taking any sort of trip to Bar Harbor. It fits all criteras and you'd be a fool not to stay here! Again The owners Darren and Camille are just what makes that property shine! Heres to 2013 WE WILL SEE YOU THEN!!
