We chose Belle Isle for the price and also so our daughter could experience an old style motel before they are all gone. Belle Isle offers travelers a lower price option near Acadia & Bar Harbor. The motel is right on the main road but we were not bothered by noise between 11 pm & 6 am. Our room (#10) faced the road and was on the far end of the rooms facing the road, so no neighbors on one side . The pool and fire pit are on the other end by the reception & laundry. The window style AC unit in the wall was loud when we turned it to cooling. It was not as loud on the fan only setting so we left it on fan and had the bathroom window open and front windows slightly cracked. The weather was mild so we didn’t need the AC, thankfully. The room had the basics and a K-cup coffee maker (3 pods: 2 reg. & 1 decaf) & small refrigerator. The bathroom was very small but the water pressure was fine as was the water temp. It is an old motel and showing its age but seemed basically clean. The focus of our trip was Acadia so only were in the room to sleep & shower. Staff (reception and cleaning) were friendly and helpful. A place to lay your head between hiking when you don’t have camping gear. It is about 5 miles from the Acadia visitor’s center and 8 miles from downtown Bar Harbor. It was fine for what we needed, very no frills, if it was a different place and time other than Bar Harbor in peak season I would probably be more critical about the price for what you get, but as they say location, location, location.
