If you stay here, I recommend only pay one night at a time. The husband is friendly and nice, but the wife, not so much. We were a return customer and not a warm reception at check-in, but this may just be her personality. Two mornings later, however, when we quietly mentioned we found rat poop and footprints in our...

Every time we travel to Ellsworth, we stay at the Twilite. The owners are wonderfully friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the price is excellent. This is a great chance to support a local couple who works hard to offer a memorable experience.

We were heading to Acadia for the day and decided to stay here on our way back. We are so glad that we did. The owners were very personable, the place was cute, and it was CLEAN. We have stayed in lots of places, and this was seriously one of the cleanest motels (and hotels) we have ever been in.... More

A few miles from Bar Harbor/Acadia, the Twilite Motel offers a reasonable & cheaper option to centrally located accommodation. Comfortable bed with good selections for breakfast. Good amenities and very helpful staff.

The Twilite Motel is a gem. Classic and simple motorlodge in truly the best possible way. Great location, easy to get to and get out of. The grounds are well kept and the staff was pleasant and super nice. Very helpful. The room we stayed at had tons of character, which is not often something that is offered with motels... More

We were very happy with our stay at Twilite! We felt like we had stepped into an authentic 1950's motel. It was very well-kept and the rooms are cared for. I expected a faded bedspread and musty smell but was pleasantly surprised. This was the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The exposed beams did not have a single cobweb,... More

I'll tell you straight up- doesn't look like much from the outside BUT let me tell you- this place was AWESOME!!! Here's the deal- drive up the coast to watch the sun rise over MDI/Bar Harbor. Got there pretty late and nothing was open- vacancy wise. Spent the night with the campers in WalMart's parking lot- not a bad thing....... More

We were very pleased with the service and the staff is very friendly. The children liked the space to play and they absolutely LOVED the blueberry muffins for breakfast! We will certainly stay here again.

This place was dated but a very good value. It was clean and the couple who runs it was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was basic but good. There were several tables on a covered porch surrounded by flowers and other vegetation making it a relaxing place to hang out. My only complaint was that there was no iron or... More
