This is a renovated Howard Johnsons and the mgt is doing the best they could possibly do with aged facilities. Room was clean and spacious, staff was courteous and helpful. Value was excellent. Great for extended stay and exploration of Down East Maine.

This is a motel on the US1, 17 miles from the Acadia NP. And this is the only reason we slept a couple of night here. As I told in the title it was not bad, room was relatively big and the bathroom clean but cannot be compared to an hotel. Breakfast was a simple coffee to go at the... More

A friend and I wanted to visit Acadia National Park and needed to book a place during peak season with just 3 weeks notice--and we wanted something very reasonably priced. Fortunately, we found this place in Ellsworth. We stayed here August 22-26 for $81/night which was much lower priced than anything else we could find in the area. This is... More

My family and I stayed here this last week, August 17-29, 2013. I really tried to like it, but it just had too many things wrong with it. My 10-year-old son will probably say it was his favorite place he has ever stayed because he got to take a shower with a frog--the rest of us were glad that he... More

We arrived in Bar Harbour, unbeknowest to us that Kenny Chesny was playing in Bar Harbour, and basically the city was sold out. Another property let us know that the Knights Inn still had rooms left and was kind enough to hold a room until we arrived. The room had a musty smell to it. It looked like the fridge... More

Best rate around on short notice and during peak season. I think I paid $80/night on three days notice in the middle of August. You can't beat that... On arrival, check-in was seamless. I was a late arrival (as I usually am) - be aware the office closes at 10pm so call ahead if you'll arrive later. The room was...a... More

Looks like an average hotel, nothing special, the parking lot is horrible very tight & hard to back out of as your close enough to hit the car behind you. We paid about $100 for the room and booked several months before, Our beds were comfy as could be, we had a mini fridge that worked just fine for our... More

I had been to worse so I'll give it a moderately fair rating. 75$ room special on peak season. Has a dorm size ref but no microwave. Carpet is dirty but beds are OK. Bathroom not bad although we found a pea size baby frog in the tub - surprise, surprise! Due to the location we also found a moth... More

The picture on the website makes this hotel look like a castle, but it is far from it! Advertises free WI Fi but could not even get 1 bar. I was in town to run a Ultra Marathon and like to relax in a cool room before my run but I could not get my room below 85 degrees and... More
