Don't expect luxury. But after saying that the rooms were spacious. I loved my porch looking over the southwest harbor. It's on the quiet side of the island. It is about a 15 minutes drive to the entrance to Acadia national park and Bar Harbor. There are sights to see and places to eat in Southwest harbor. So if just... More

Thank you for your review of the Harbor View Motel. It was a good description, and highlighted why many people like to come to the Harbor View, and Southwest Harbor in general. You're certainly right about the view, I don't think you're going to find a better one on Mount Desert Island. It's a very safe town and a safe... More

We have been staying at the Harbor View for our vacations since 1982. We go back there yearly because of the beautiful view, friendly staff, quaint surroundings and peace. Southwest Harbor is on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island, but there is still a lot to do. And at the end of the day, we feel like we are... More

We were happy there and the beds were okay (as opposed to one sofa bed from 4 years ago). The shower was great and we were able to make use of the kitchen. The view is great but you can't sit around for long to view it because the sofa is pretty uncomfortable. If it had had really comfortable seating... More

My partner and I came to Bar Harbor for the first time on the way down from Nova Scotia, and had the most amazing experience. The staff was incredibly helpful (they recommended the excellent Fiddlers' Green for a romantic and scrumptious dinner), friendly, and accommodating. Our second floor room was spacious with a large wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor window that overlooked a... More

Totally enjoyed my stay at Harbor View. I stayed there October 2013. Stayed in room 201. Very Roomy and Comfortable. Absolutely Gorgeous view off of the covered deck which I was glad it was covered since it rained for part of our stay. Only downside is privacy. Walls are thin and we could clearly hear our neighbors when they were... More

We came to Southwest Harbor for a few nights in October to see the park. Unfortunately it was closed due to the shutdown, so we only stayed for 2 nights instead of the 3 we had planned. The motel was very accommodating with cancelling the 3rd night, and did not charge us for the cancellation. We had room #1, which... More

Thank you for your review of the Harbor View Motel and Cottages. Room 1 is part of the North Units which are the most affordable and hence, as you said, in need of an update. We pride ourselves at the Harbor View Motel in providing a clean, friendly, and comfortable environment, and I was particularly disappointed to hear the room... More

Located on well-manicured grounds at the end of peaceful town harbor and a five minute walk to fine restaurants, the ground-floor motel rooms are rather small with dated furnishings and TV (squeaky beds with ancient blankets and sheets). The motel rooms, though very clean, still need major upgrading. The breakfast rates a six out of 10 and the daytime desk... More

We stayed in Room #6 which is on the end of a row of single floor motel style rooms. Our room was more like a cabin than motel room. The living room has huge windows that look out over the front deck and harbor. It is so picturesque that I thought I'd just stepped into a New England painting. The... More

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet place, not very expansive, in Southwest Harbor. We stayed in room 202 which is on the 2nd floor (no elevator) and has a deck over looking the harbor, a sitting room and a large fridge. Breakfast of cereal, muffins and bagels is included and really good... More
