We stayed here 2 nights while on a two week leaf peeping road trip to New England in October. When planning the trip, we found that there is no such thing as a "cheap" hotel room near any tourist areas that time of year, however, this was the least expensive of any hotel we stayed at, (Both mom & pop...

After reading some of the glowing reviews that appear here I feel I must have stayed in a different hotel. I do agree that the owners are very nice and friendly but after that I don't have much in common with the other reviews. I will try not to be too negative but I expected more for the price I...

My husband and I love the Twilite Motel! We stayed here for the first time in April 2014, a trip for our anniversary. When we arrived, we were upgraded to a King suite. A very nice surprise, especially for our anniversary. The owner's kindness and the motel's perfect location brought us back in October 2015. Twilite Motel is a mile... More

We've stayed here every year for at least 10 years, during our annual trip to Maine. We now consider Ariel and Chuck friends, not just business managers. We appreciate the warmth of staying here as opposed to the coldness of larger overnight facilities. Every thing in our room is always neat and clean. The towels heavy, like what you'd have... More

Great little motel. Very friendly and helpful owners. We stayed there 2 nights and enjoyed it. Helpful with what to see in the area. It is a little dated but comfy beds. Definitely stay there next time we're in the area.

This little motel earned the high rating from me both for what they offer and what they don't. What they have: clean and comfortable accommodations, quiet rooms, quiet clientele, quiet surroundings, and very good internet connectivity. What they don't have: fancy sign out front, spacious lobby, seating for dozens in the breakfast room, exercise room, pool, glitz. Picture a self-described... More

The motel is located near the Acadia National Park. The rooms are large and clean. The interior is not brand new but is by far good enough. The breakfast is fine and what you can expect. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely come here again.

We've stayed here every year for several years when visiting family. The owners go out of their way to make you comfortable. Plain no frills but everything you need. Nice continental breakfast on the porch

We just needed an overnight stay while in the Bar Harbor, ME area. This is an older style 50's motel. Everything was updated and clean and the beds were comfortable. The only negative would be if you wanted to take a bath, tub was very small. I understand they have bigger units also. The couple running the place were very... More

Great location, good service, nice rooms , excellent owners, very fine establishment, and all priced well. Just so much to do in the area. Plenty of restaurants, stores of all description, and just down the road a virtual tourist mecca. How much better does it get? The down side could only be the weather, as we all know how that...
