We had a wonderful time chatting with Dave and Speed Bump the Cat! The room was comfortable, clean and had a fantastic view. There were amenities (soap & shampoo). The breakfast was plentiful with delicious hot coffee. The atmosphere was warm friendly and very laid-back, just the right place to relax for a weekend. We will definitely be back again!

Hospitality was superior - Dave and Vicki really run a "salon" here every morning over breakfast, so feel free to join in the conversation, with local Mainers as well as out-of-state guests! Room was very clean and comfortable; amenities (soap and shampoo) were especially nice. Close attention is paid to environmental needs and people's sensitivities. We stayed an extra day,... More

We have wanted to come up to MDI for a very long time during the winter and choose this motel because we camp near here often at Seawall Campground. We had walked over one day while camping and meet Vicki one of the owners and she took the time out of her day to show us around and let us... More

Wonderful owners who really take pride in their work. Very friendly, clean, environment. Lots of attention to detail. We stayed during the off season, which turned out to be a very good idea. Overall a very honest business, which isn't something that can be experienced frequently when tourism is a source of money. Really appreciated it. Thanks Seawall, we'll be... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The accommodation was clean and basic. The breakfast was adequate with coffee, tea, cocoa, boiled egg, various pastries. The other guests we met at breakfast were interesting and some of them have been staying here every year! The owner told us his interesting life story :) Location is great specially if you want to...

Been coming back here for over 50 years. I would not stay anywhere else. The Owners treat you like family and are most friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. That and what's outside your door , the beautiful ocean is right across the street ,along with countless walking trails a beautiful and quiet side... More

We wanted to stay near Acadia, but away from busy Bar Harbor. We found this motel on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! The view was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to eat. The motel was not fancy, but very clean and comfortable.

Prior to booking this location I searched all reviews. I found many good remarks, however my experience was such that all good reviews were way understated. The staff could not have done more to ensure our stay was the best ever. Can't wait to return to the Seawall another year and spend a number of days with these fine people.Everything... More

We spent 3 nights at the Seawall just before the national parks shut down in September. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, and we loved the out-of-the way location, just down the road from a lesser-visited section of Arcadia. The breakfast they provide is good, varied, and a provides fun time to compare notes with the owners,... More
