I was late in booking but really wanted to stay in Southwest Harbor at least one night. This place is a little hidden find. Older and cozy, clean with good beds. Great price. Ate the very plentiful continental breakfast on their deck and visited with people who come back every year. The location is great--on the bay, easy walk to... More

Hello, Thank you for your review of the Harbor View Motel and Cottages. It sounds like you enjoyed your stay at the motel, along with your time in beautiful Southwest Harbor. Your write-up was positive and yet, you only gave 3 stars out of 5. Is there anything we could have done to warrant a better numerical review? We would... More

We checked out of Seawall Campground and wanted to stay on the quiet side of the island for one more day. Almost all of Southwest Harbor was booked but Harbor View had one room for one night and didn't take advantage and upcharge. Rate was very reasonable. We stayed in Room 8. Walls were thin and furnishings were outdated but... More

We were recently in for a couple of nights (North units). The location is great - great view of the harbor and walking distance to town. Comfortable bed, clean bathroom with nice towels. (was impossible to plug in the hair dryer in the bathroom fixture.) The furniture is a bit dated and tv smallish but still comfortable. If I have... More

The family just returned from a trip to Mt. Desert Island, and a week-long stay at the Harbor View Motel and Cottages. We enjoyed our time so much, that we decided to reserve for a week next Summer. We stayed in cottage #21 - including the dog (which is one of the main reasons why we picked this motel) -... More

We had a room overlooking the harbor which was great other than that the furniture looked like it came from a garage sale or ready to be set to the curb. The bed was ok but the real issue was the room had a very strong smoke order like the rugs have not been cleaned in years. It also had... More

Hello, We appreciate your patronage and your review of the Harbor View Motel and Cottages. It is very disheartening to hear about the cigarette smell in the room you stayed in. At the Harbor View, we take great pride in providing a clean and healthy environment. We will take the necessary steps to ensure that the rooms will be free... More

We stayed for 4 nights at cottage #19. The location of cottage #19 was very peaceful, had water frontage, was walking distance to everything. The place was fully equipped and very clean. The zone controlled heating was great for the chilly nights. We cooked dinners 'at home' and enjoyed dining on the deck. The manager handled our glitch thoughtfully. The... More

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
