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... More

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... More

We tend to look for clean and comfortable accomodations so we have more to spend on food and entertainment. This place is right up our alley. The grounds and lobby area are beautiful. Clearly they expend a lot of effort keeping everything in tip top shape. The owners were very friendly and super helpful. Every question or request we had... More

A good place to stay very convenient to Bar Harbor. When we first arrived Rich was very helpful in making suggestions about places to eat and see. Rates near the town are higher than the surrounding area, so we bit the bullet, mostly because we reserved at the last minute. It was a little high, though, for what you get.... More

In Bar Harbor for the birth of my first grandchild and it was after 8pm at the end of July. Luckily they had a room available and I will stay there again. Very clean and well-maintained, it is obvious the owners take good care of the motel. While it wasn't sleek and modern like the chains, it was comfortable and... More

We stayed two nights in this motel in July 2013. We got into Bar Harbor late, and we were happy that the front desk was staffed so late as some of the neighbouring motels were closed. It was clean and the staff were friendly. It was a bit of a drive into Bar Harbor, but it was worth it for... More

It's very clean and comfortable and owners Rich and Kelly couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We have been coming to Bar harbor for 15 years now and stayed at several different motels, but now High Seas is our go to place to stay.
