Great stay
Great old school motel with refurbished rooms. Clean. Nice people at the desk. Perfect location to walk into town and drive to Acadia National Park.

Basic motel, very clean, fantastic location
Standard motel with nice grassy area and nice looking from outside. Great location, walking distance to Bar Harbor center. Room was very clean and looked like it was newly renovated. They DON'T use those cheap polyester bed covers from 70's you see in every motel - huge plus I wish they used better towels, instead of the cheap thin ones. For the money they charge I think they can afford it. I'll probably stay here again next time I come up.

This is a safe motel. Not too clean or dirty. A bit noisy and the staff was not too happy. It smelled like a thrift store, so I guess it needs a renovation. the beds were clean but lumpy.

Beds were comfortable, room was very clean and the location was great. It was close to town so we were able to walk everywhere. Owners were very accommodating, would definitely stay again.

2/10 Poor

Try to find another place
Room was sterile white washed panel with nothing on the walls. No table, no desk. Nowhere to write a postcard, sit and have a coffee, etc. One sitting chair but if two or more people no place to sit and relax for two people let along a family of four. Two people, two towels that never dried; no maid service for three night stay. TV had a system that had no instructions and was difficult to use. Unit needs to include basic ammenities and services. The positive was it was convenient for parking and walking to main part of town. Stayed her 28 years ago when family was young. Loved it then, but they have gone cheap and have stripped out the charm it once had. Paid alot of money for a junky stay. Found inns in town that had comparible prices and so regret we came back here. So disappointed and sad we came back.
