Get a room on the second floor. That way you can see the sea and not hear someone walking overhead. Rooms are plain but big, beds are fine, updated bathrooms are super-clean. The hosts are charming. Thoughtful amenities not found in most motels: a laundry room with a fridge and microwave.

Helpful friendly staff, clean rooms, great showers recycling, laundry room, good breakfast, beautiful surroundings, wifi: what's to want? We recommend this motel. Minor caveat, we could hear snoring in the adjacent rooms, but when we hit the big comfortable bed we went right to sleep. Hope to return asap.

I'm not going to lie- we 100% booked this motel in order to geek out over their resident cat, Speed Bump (who is indeed, everything we hoped and dreamed). That being said, I can also genuinely recommend the rest of the motel. The staff is ridiculously friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and you have an ocean view. The... More

the place to go for walking, sitting and musing on the rocky seawall coast of acadia. a quiet motel with good rooms, great showers, comfortable beds and very helpful staff. easy driving to all of the national park places and towns of mt desert. unusual in not being overpriced for this region so great value.

Perfect place to stay in Acadia! Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful! Great views! Just left (wish we could have stayed longer) but we can't wait to get back to this beautiful island and stay at this wonderful motel!

Stayed at this property for a week. We are very familiar with the island and wanted to stay in a quiet locale. The motel is remote and a ten minute drive from very quiet Southwest Harbor. Lots of nature and ocean is a distant view, but nothing else. The rooms are okay; however, no A/C or fridge in room, not... More

This was our second stay at the Seawall motel and we were very pleased. The Seawall is quaint motel located in a breathtakingly gorgeous area away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor. The room was immaculately clean and spacious. The carpet seemed new and the king sized mattress was very comfortable. Breakfast and coffee are included in... More

We returned to the Seawall Motel this year. The weather cooperated, speed bump the cat was uninterested, we met some interesting people, including the staff. Watching the U.S. Ladies win the FIFI title in our clean, comfortable room is a great way to relax. Hope to return in the fall.

My husband and I chose the quiet side of MDI away from the "action " of the touristy Bar Harbor area. We love Seawall Motel's quiet but beautiful location next to a pond and across the road from a rocky beach on the Atlantic. The views are wonderful. Rooms are basic: no microwave, coffee maker, fridge but guests are welcome... More
