My husband and I recently stayed at the Twilite Motel and we are glad we did. The motel is in a perfect location to quickly visit downtown Ellsworth (a few short blocks away), Bangor, and Acadia National Park. The room we stayed in was incredibly clean and quiet. The shower had great pressure and the water could get very hot.... More

My husband and I took a trip to Maine in August this year and while visiting Bar Harbor we stayed in Ellsworth at the Twilight Motel. The motel owners were very welcoming and helpful with information about Acadia. They also provided a complimentary breakfast and had a wonderful little gift shop. Their laundry facilities were also very convenient for us... More

Got into town late after an Anniversary tour of Acadia and Bar Harbor. Upon hearing about our anniversary, the ownership upgraded us to a bigger room. The room was very clean and the breakfast was also very nice. Thanks for another nice memory of Maine.

twilite, Owner at Twilite Motel, responded to this review

Our motel is under constant supervision of a professional pest company. This includes all the necessary treatments and inspections. We are sorry for the guest’s obvious discomfort, but we would like to point out that bed bugs, unlike their name, can be contracted anywhere and not only in motels or in beds. In light of our facility being constantly monitored,... More

We stayed here with friends in two separate rooms/cabins with connecting doors. The owner is very friendly and we enjoyed talking to him. There is coffee and hot chocolate available until late in the evening and a little store there. Breakfast is complimentary. We had a comfortable night, everything is clean and it's nice to be away from the boring... More

We discovered the Twilite Motel on Trip Advisor while planning a road trip from Ontario through New England to an ocean cottage in Nova Scotia. We liked our stay so much that we went 40 miles out of our way to stay here again on the way home. This is truly a mom and pop establishment. Very personal service. The... More

We called ahead and booked a room for 4 people and 2 dogs. The owners were friendly and very accommodating. The room was beautiful and clean. The next mornings breakfast was very nice and we were able to sit outside and enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend this motel and we plan on staying here every year on our way north... More
