The Skylark should sell at shirt that reads: "I survived a night at the Skylark!" We arrived at 3pm after a four hr drive from Bar Harbor went to check in and the office was closed! There is no ice machine but ice to purchase like the gas station. Office closes every night until morning. Very old establishment. No faucets... More

Our family enjoyed another wonderful vacation in Maine this summer. We have stayed at The Skylark Beach Inn every summer for many years, and can advise that the rooms and the grounds are clean and well cared for, the staff very helpful addressing any concerns, and the beach beautiful and very accessible. Due to some health concerns, our family appreciates... More

Very pleased with the proximity to the beach. It was convenient to run back & forth to the room for items & to bring my infant for a nap. Stores are around the corner from the room but far enough from the Pier as not to hear the noise. The room was clean with no remnince of sand from prior... More

Had a wonderful stay in the oceanfront room this week. Was very lucky to get such a great room last minute. Someone cancelled :-) Marie was so nice over the phone and upon checking in. Waking up to that view was wonderful and Falling asleep to the ocean waves is so relaxing. Perfect for couples with little ones since it... More

I have been going to years not really finding a freindly place on the ocean, then finally found the Skylark. We have been staying every fall for the last 6 years. Clean, well managed. staff extremely friendly and accommodating.

The owner of this property basically stole $950 from my 5 friends and me. We had two nights booked in a suite. We were six 40-something grandmas out on a girls' weekend. Being a non-smoking room, those of the friends that smoked were having a cigarette on the deck, using ashrays provided by the hotel, and suddenly the police were... More

My cousin and I stayed in a corner room which didn't have a great ocean view but was more handicap accessible which was important. The room was stuffy, with no air circulation. One of the windows was stuck shut and someone had to free it. It was so small, and because the room wasn't facing the ocean directly, breezes couldn't... More

We stayed at The Skylark in Sept for a week with friends and booked the Penthouse which is definitely the way to go if you have 2 couples or family and need 3 bedrooms.The best part is you have your own private rooftop deck and the large windows in the living room and dining room have a unimpeded view of...
