The staff is amazingly friendly, the view is fantastic, the rooms were great. I'm so glad I decided to stay here. Very close to the seawall and entrance to Acadia. The breakfast was small but sufficient for sure. A very family friendly place. It's not often you find a place like this so I really recommend staying here.

We had a great stay at the Seawall Motel. It is not a premium, luxury venue. It is , however, clean, the rooms are large, the staff is friendly and keen to please, the cat is noble and friendly and the beds are very comfortable. For the price you will not do better. Sit out on your veranda and watch... More

The Seawall Motel was the best place we stayed on our two week vacation. We spent 5 nights here. Its an older motel, but the rooms are large and the motel is very clean. The owners and their staff are wonderful! Everyone is friendly and courteous and they go out of their way to make sure your stay is great.... More

We believe that we enjoyed this hotel the most during our 5 night stay on the island. It is nestled just across the street from the Natural Seawall. Enjoyed the quiet side and was able to enjoy the sunrise on the rocks of the shore. Great owners! Did not have a small refrigerator in the room, which was OK as... More

We enjoyed a stay at this basic inexpensive motel. The room was spacious and clean. There is no blow dryer, coffeemaker or iron in the room. To get an iron/ironing board or blow dryer, you need to go down to the office and they will give you one or they will bring it up to your room. You can get... More

The Seawall is a marvelous surprise wedged on the water between gorgeous Arcadia and its campgrounds and the tourista-packed hubbub of Bar Harbor. We arrived late, having found ourselves on the "quietside" of the island watching a gorgeous sunset while attempting to track down the relative who had invited us to stay with him. Finding no relative and a lot... More

A basic motel but quiet and scenic location at tip of the island. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We received a wealth of tips & guidance on what to do which made a huge difference for us as first-time visitors to the area. Location is about a half-hour's drive from the main portion of the park and from... More

This place has a great view, especially if you are located on the far end closer to the water. It also has a good heater for colder nights. That being said, what you can expect is a decent basic room. The beds are good and it is a BIG room. Bathroom is basic. No coffee maker in room but it... More

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
