We spent 4 nights here recently. It was wonderfully quiet. Great location away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. Motel personal were incredibly nice. Decent breakfast at the motel. Good food options nearby in Southwest Harbor. We tried the "Popover" place next door our last morning ( we should have tried it sooner ) I would not hesitate... More

We were in Acadia for a week, using the Seawall Motel as a base. It is a quiet, very friendly place with very sociable and friendly staff! The kids always went out to the seawall to play or pet Speed Bump, the adorable cat owned by the operators. The continental breakfast was pretty allround, the rooms are clean and the... More

On the outside, this looks like a typical roadside motel--nothing fancy like a Hilton or such. Could use a little TLC in some places (paint touch-ups and such). However...the rooms are very nice and clean, the staff are super friendly and helpful, and Speed Bump (the cat) is an absolute sweetheart. Plus, the views across the road are great and... More

We really enjoyed our five-night stay at Seawall. The rooms are neat, bright, and clean. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The kids loved playing on the seawall across the road and the parents would sit and watch and relax. This is a quieter area of Mount Desert Island, away from the busier area of Bar Harbor. We were close... More

This is a simple place for not a lot of money in one of the best places on the island (Think of it as like a Motor Inn) Walk across the street and you're on the ocean. Clean, basic rooms, hot showers, good breakfast spread. Best of all, the island shuttle picks up right there and will take you into... More

Location is great, right on the seawall. It's a motel, so no frills, buts it's clean and the breakfast is fantastic plus the staff is so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting on the motel balcony, second floor, and taking in the views of the water and seawall. It was nice to stay on the quiet side of the island... More

Nothing special here, but the rooms are clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Right across from the motel is a beautiful view of the sea and a perfect spot for seeing the sunrise/sunset. A good value.

We wanted to find a place in Southwest Harbor to get out early kayaking. This place was a real treat. Quiet, clean, nice people. There are a couple of small restaurants right nearby. The entrance to Acadia is right there too. You're close to Long Pond and Echo Lake. The staff is very knowledgeable about anything and everything, hiking, eating,... More

Stayed 5 nights and had a great time. Staff was pleasant and rooms were clean. Everyone appreciated the complimentary breakfast. Walls are a bit thin so if you bring kids, be warned that your neighbors may be hearing more than they want. All and all, great value.

This is a straight-up standard cinder-block motel located on a lovely and quiet part of MDI. If you are not looking for a resort and need a clean room with a decent bed, this is your place. The motel is located near several delicious cafes and restaurants and the bike shop nearby will fix you up with bike rentals and... More
