Booked it early in anticipation of visitors to Acadian National Park needing close by lodging -- and that was smart. Convenient drive to all the area. Lovely room with hearty breakfast included. Even events planned for families to enjoy.

The continental breakfast far exceeded our expectations with eggs, Wild Maine blueberry pancakes, Wild Blueberry Muffins, Gluten free muffins etc etc. Everything was very fresh and beautifully presented. The granite bathroom and luxurious bed were AWESOME. The front desk staff were very helpful and exceptionally friendly. Convenient drive to downtown. Hope to return soon!!

This staff at this motel were wonderfully helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. The property was clean and comfortable with little touches such as a wildlife watch white board outside for animal sightings and a children's space inside in the breakfast area for budding artists. The accommodations are outwardly 1950's - 1960's style but with every amenity inside for your...

We enjoyed the room layout of our suite with a separate bedroom and our backyard bordering the park. The shuttle ride into town was convenient and most of the hiking activities require a car or shuttle ride no matter where you stay. Good breakfast buffet with the drinks and fruit available all day. Nice overall atmosphere.

The hotel is a relaxed family motel. Location to Bar Harbor and Acadia are ideal. The breakfast is continental and ok. For fun we ventured into town for most breakfasts and dinners. We did not swim but it looked like fun.

Very conveniently located on the trolley route, comfortable, a bit dated but clean rooms. Breakfast got quite busy, but was adequate. We had a nice short stay in the area with two young kids who enjoyed the pool.

What a great place for multiple families to gather and enjoy one of the most wonderful regions in the world. We gathered with five families, took full advantage of all the facilities as well as the location (it's just steps away from the bike trails in Acadia and a short buss ride to town). The rooms are generously sized, with...

This was our second visit to this place, it is really a great place to stay while visiting Acadia National Park. The staff is extremely friendly, the rooms are very nice, clean and large, there are laundry facilities, and they offer a really tasty gratuituous breakfast. Certainly not our last visit to this place.

The hotel was great. I'm very picky and can honestly say that we were very pleased. The room was very clean, furnishing nice, location on bus line very good, and the lobby staff was exceptionally nice. The rooms are in building with 3 or 4 rooms each, so you have privacy. We had a really nice grassy area in front...

Thank you for these kind words. The word "nice" appeared in your review several times and it made us smile because we have an unpublicized rule of conduct here at the Bar Harbor Motel which is - "Just be nice." It's a mantra we repeat over and over to our staff. In truth we try to only hire people who...

The staff at the Motel is wonderful. The breakfast was good. They had fruit and juices and bagels.... Everything was replenished quickly. It was a little far from the center of town to walk, even though we did one night. There was a path from the motel to walk into Acadia Park. We would definitely stay there again.
