Good value for the money is the distinction of this motel. The location is fairly convenient--not too far from downtown Bar Harbor nor to Acadia National Park, even though the motel isn't walking distance to anything except the bayside campus of the College of the Atlantic across the street. We worried that our hillside room (#1) overlooking Eden Street would... More

I stayed here during the weekend of the Mount Desert Island Marathon and enjoyed my stay very much. The property is family owned and run and their hospitality was welcome after my 7 hour drive to MDI. My room was in the upper level (up the road) but very close to the office. My room was spacious, clean and very... More

A true throwback that was spotless and well-maintained. Super friendly staff and a good location (it's a little far to walk to downtown, but manageable). I loved the front porche and the Formica bathroom counter! Screen doors were also a great touch. Generous breakfast included. Overall, staying here felt that not only were you on vacation, but you were on... More

This beautifully cared for motel from the 50s was excellent! Our room was huge with a king size bed and dining area, plus there was a breakfast bar in the lobby that was amazing! Containers for everything so you could take it all with you! The hosts were wonderful and helpful and it was a great Maine experience! Also extremely... More

My husband and I do a lot of traveling. My husband booked Highbrook Motel. We were in town for a marathon. From the welcome to the good-bye the staff was warm and friendly. The room was lovely. I felt that everything was super clean and welcoming. I tried to leave the room as nice as I first walked into it.... More

We recently visited Bar Harbor and stayed at the Highbrook Motel based on other Tripadvisor reviews. The Highbrook is a 60's-modern motel, so well cared for that I felt like we were stepping back in time to the day it was built. Our room was huge with a king-size bed, dressing area with an ironing board and mini-fridge, a flat... More

We were very pleased with our stay. Although the motel is dated, our room was extremely clean and the bathroom was even updated with a retro look.

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor. We chose this motel because of their reviews. We spent six wonderful nights here in mid-October and couldn't have been more pleased. It's a simple motel with five stars in comfort, cleanliness, friendliness and location. Their grab-and-go breakfast is great and their hot apple cider in the evening a delicious treat. The... More

My wife and I stayed at the Highbrook 2 weeks ago. We chose it because we love mom-and-pop lodging and the reviews were all great. I photograph 5 star resorts for a living and without a doubt, this was the cleanest room have ever stayed in - you could eat off the bathroom floor! It has a wonderful retro vibe... More

The Highbrook Motel was Excellent. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area. The motel was great in every aspect. Within walking distance to the waterfront and the shops, restaurants, and entertainment. Will definitely stay again if in Bar Harbor.
