You cant beat the location. This is a budget motel that located only a few minutes walk to the town center and only a few minutes drive to Acadia National Park. The room was clean and comfortable. A great value for the money. Highly recommended.

The hotel was walking distance to town. There was plenty of parking in the courtyard. The room was clean and the front desk was very helpful. The Anchorage was convenient to restaurants, a park and was a beautiful walk to town.

If you want a low priced hotel within a couple blocks of down town then this n is ok, no in room coffee, on breakfast, they do have coffee at front desk in morning. Bed sagged to middle, very basic, but was clean.

I booked this hotel because I was just passing through for the night and I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on a room I was going to be in for just 12 hours. Everything else in Bar Harbor seems to be at least twice as much, so I took a chance on this hotel and it met...

For our 3 day visit to Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park, we chose this hotel, given that almost all of the other hotels were booked and a bit more pricey, so with some doubts we went ahead and booked our stay here. This motel has an awesome location in Bar Harbor, its within walking distance of everything, restaurants, shops,...

Best thing about this place is that it is right downtown. We stayed 2 nights and we parked at the motel and walked a couple of blocks to downtown for all our meals. Parking anywhere else downtown is a hassle so this was great. No amenities or coffeemaker in room. This is just the barebones but we were only in...

The receptionist was like a machine. In the room there is no kettle neither similar. The wifi did not reach our room....and the price does not pay for this bad quality in an old fashioned motel. Look for somwhere better on Bar Harbour.

Very good location, close to everything, nothing fancy, clean, plain-jane type, wifi and parking included. It seems it's cheaper to book online than call - odd ... I would probably return here again. The problem in Bar Harbor is that rental occupancy is around 95% so you may want to book well in advance.

We have been staying here for years now and we will be coming back again next year! The rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic and all the downtown attractions are just a few blocks from the door. The staff has always been friendly and helpful and the motel has pet friendly rooms...

Our first visit to Bar Harbor. We stayed at Anchorage Motel one night and that was too long. This was the dirtiest place I have ever stayed in. Carpet was filthy..I would not take my shoes off because of the filth. Dark 1960 paneling on walls. This place should be torn down by the health department. For $l5l.00 I can...
