We checked into our room late in the afternoon. This was not our first stay at Quimby House. We stayed there about three years ago. At that time we had a suite and it was very comfortable. A bit dated, but I would call it more cozy. This time we had a small room. Two adults and a golden retriever...

First, the location cannot be beat. The well stocked grocery is a half block away and that makes the food and drink handy when you are tired of dining out. Two Cats is so very close (and tasty) Second the staff was good (friendly and helpful). Third, don't book here unless you are ok with very dated decor. Even though...

Stayed for two nights. Room was clean and the king sized bed was really comfy. Accommodating and pleasant staff. Short walk to the water and many wonderful restaurants. The free morning coffee isn't great but there are multiple great coffee shops within minutes. Short drive to Acadia park which is well worth the trip.

It was our first time to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park....our trip was great and the Quimby House Inn was one of the reasons for that....room was clean, spacious, reasonably priced and its location was unreal....everything in town was a walkable distance and a 5 minute drive to Acadia...we are definitely going back to Acadia and when we do...

It was ok for a few days and the location was great. But the room needs some updating. My daughters slept on the pull out coach and there were springs/bars in there back all night. Very uncomfortable sleeping arrangements. For the price, there are better options. They allow dogs which was the selling point for us but we'll look around...

The staff and owner of Quimby House Inn were friendly and accommodating. It is much like a B & B without the breakfast which we appreciated, as our goal was to come and go as desired without time restraints. Our room was clean and comfortable. We slept very well. Location was perfect for our needs. The cost of our stay...

This is a good place to stay. It's billed as a B&B, but it's really just a B as they don't serve breakfast. That said, it is a bargain in an expensive town, and is a comfortable walk to downtown and all of the activities. Parking is a pain in Bar Harbor, but this motel has a decent amount of...

Lets be honest - every inn, motel and B&B in Bar Harbor is pretty cute. Some are more vintage than others, with varying levels of upkeep. Our room here 119 was ground level which made getting in and out easy with the kids and luggage. Internet was fast, room was clean and cool. There were a couple of cosmetic misses...

The location was good. The price was fair for the size of the room. The A/C was weak for size of room. The decor is ready to be updated. The staff was kind and knowledgeable. The WiFi is super weak if that is a need of yours.

The Quimby House Inn is first and foremost clean and comfortable! You can eat off the floor. It's walking distance to Bar Harbor. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Reasonably priced, convenient distance to all attractions. Awesome place to stay!
