Having read some of the Trip Advisor reviews, we were somewhat anxious about staying at the Kimball Terrace Inn but we were very pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our three days there, slept beautifully in our beds and found absolutely nothing to be lacking. Our 3rd floor room, facing the lovely harbor, was the largest hotel room we've ever stayed in.... More

Basically a motel with some frills, the setting overlooking a small harbor is very pleasant. Restaurant is quirky but good food. Take a mail boat to a nearby island for a nice change. Easy, scenic drive to Bar Harbor and the national park.

The location of Kimball Terrace Inn is it's best aspect, and the view of the harbor is it's second best. They have a nice restaurant in site with friendly, accommodating staff. But the number one thing you want when staying in a hotel/inn is a good nights sleep, so I can't rate this place any higher, unfortunately. The nightly rate... More

This motel was good enough for your basic needs. About 20 minutes from downtown Bar Harbor and 20 minutes from Acadia's Park Loop Rd. The beds were very uncomfortable, but the staff was friendly and the location was acceptable.

This motel with a view of the harbor has a lot of potential. However, it is ready for a renovation. The mattresses are covered in plastic, sanitary but not comfortable. Then there is a lumpy mattress pad and very thin sheets. The bare blankets are worn. The bathroom fixtures are about 50 years old. It is clean, fortunately. The location... More

We should have read Tripadvisor before bokking this motel. Contrary to the name "inn" it is only a simple motel, for which we paid 200 $ per night. We can confirm most comments I also found on Tripadvisor. Everything is cheap from the matress to the toilet paper. We can also confirm the plastic cover on the matress. What we... More

The room was really lousy, though I suppose it was clean. The sheets were as cheap as can be, the blankets thin, and the mattresses hard as a rock. To top things off, they put a plastic pad on the mattress - pretty insulting at these prices. The only good thing was the walking distance to Northeast Harbor, truly a... More

Very friendly front desk staff, clean rooms, convenient location, but away from busy town of Bar Harbor. Very pleasant. Guy at the front desk even made me coffee at 3:30 am when we were heading out to see the sunrise!

Oh to be on the third floor balcony looking down on the harbor. That's where we are now, for our second night. Truly a lovely view, a good enough room, decent pricing, good restaurant. And none of the bar harbor tourist crap. We will return.
