The staff was incredibly friendly. The location abutting Acadia National Park awesome as we were able to walk out the back of the property right into the park. The room and pool area were clean and inviting. We would definitely s we c here again.

Thank you for this kindhearted review. Being able to walk or bike directly into Acadia National Park is a unique amenity here in Bar Harbor. We're glad you were able to utilize and enjoy it.

We travel to Bar Harbor several times each year and this was our first stay at the Bar Harbor Motel. The price is extremely reasonable, the grounds are very well kept, the beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. The staff is amazingly helpful, polite and courteous. I highly recommend this motel.

Looked at other reviews on Tripadvisor to make our selection and this motel was highly rated and was not as high a price as other hotels of similar rating. Very friendly staff and rooms were clean. Breakfast area needs some work on the layout. It is too crowded to get your food prepared and need to be spread out a...

Thank you for this very generous review. You're correct we are limited on the space we have to provide breakfast and we'll consider ways this winter (when we are closed) to rearrange the space we have to make it easier.

Your kindhearted review gives us a moment to speak about the Island Explorer Bus. From the end of June to the end of August the bus picks up in front of our hotel every 15 minutes and takes you into downtown Bar Harbor to the bus hub. From there you can catch other buses to many parts of Mount Desert...

We stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel for 3 nights in June. It was part of an antique car tour. The staff was exceptional. They helped me with an Internet problem with a blog. The provided directions and recommendations of restaurants in the area. They provided extra activities for guests during the day & evenings too.

It was really something special to have you and the others in your group stay with us. Those Model A Ford's dotting our property were a treat for us and the other guests. We're so glad your stay was pleasant and hopefully next time you're all in the area you'll stop in and be our guests again.

Loved the beauty of bar harbor and the staff were AMAZING!! Went with my boys and did not know much about the area but the staff were so helpful. I would recommend this place as long as the person is not looking to be in a resort.

What a gem! It's not everyday you come across a place like this. The entire staff were very friendly and extremely knowledgable of the area. As for the cleaning- the lobby/breakfast area was impeccable along with our room! The bathroom was brand new. A quiet, perfect place to relax and enjoy Maine. We can't wait to come back!

This is going to be long! Including this last stay with my husband, I have stayed at this hotel at least 7-8 times. It's the absolutely perfect place to stay during your trip to Bar Harbor/Acadia.

We've stayed at this motel a couple times and the location cannot be beaten ... two minutes from downtown but far enough away from the madness and the property butts up against Acadia National Park with a walking/biking trail from their parking lot into the park. It is clean and comfortable as well and the staff is very friendly. Pool...

Thank you for your kind words. We're glad you had a nice visit with us. Our pool is surrounded by trees and because spring was so late in coming this year, the trees were still dropping their seed pods while you were here and that was what was floating in the pool. As you noted, despite our skimming the pool...
