Well sometimes the TripAdvisor pictures tell a different story until you get to the actual motel. But I was a little apprehensive when I arrived at how the hotel looked from the outside. The owners were very friendly and very accommodating. We stayed there two nights so that we could spend one day riding around Acadia Nat'l Park. The motel... More

Owners are on-site, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good for such a small place. Beds reasonably good. Doorlocks need replacing; deadbolt did not slide into the doorjamb. Good alternative to staying in Bar Harbor. Much less expensive, and this place is a gem for the price.

Old-style rooms and old-style hospitality. The rooms were excellent for the price. The breakfast just fine (with excellent coffee). Our host, Chuck, was definitely an asset to any weary traveler. A very good value.

Our group of 9 rented 4 rooms and really enjoyed our 1 night at the Twilite. Nothing fancy, but very clean, and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The rates were very competitive. The wifi worked great.

Excellent experience! Very clean and comfortable- slept like a baby! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Loved the 1950s ambiance. An experience I am happy to have had - and a motel I will always remember fondly!

Clean, comfortable, well-located, family-feel motel. The owners take great care to offer a welcoming atmosphere. The front lawn acts as a great buffer from the road, keeping it nice and quiet. I recommend highly.

This motel is very clean with friendly owners. They greeted us when we checked in, answering questions about area. Beds comfortable, everything we needed. Would recommend this motel to anyone coming to the area. Our truck parked right outside our door so easy access to food in our cooler..

As soon as we checked in, we felt like we were at ease and would be looked after. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They work hard to keep the place clean and welcoming. Breakfast, which consisted of toast, cereal, some pastries, coffee, milk, and juice, is served every morning with seating on the patio. Some mornings we... More

Enjoyed our one night stay. The facility is old but clean and quiet. Good value given the location near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Staff was friendly and helpful, advising of local attractions and restaurants. This is lobster country and there are a lot of options to eat it!
