4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We rented a budget room which was located above the office - it was advertised as good for two people and was not misrepresented. The room was quite small, no microwave or refrigerator and quite possibly a bedroom in a former life with the closet remodeled into a bathroom - no tub, just a small shower. The room was small...

For a 7 day scenic trip of New England I selected (1) economical places to stay that had good reviews on several travel sites for (2) cleanliness, (3) avoiding places that look run-down or have maintenance issues, as well as other factors. This place delivered well on these three. The place has eye appeal, nicely kept outside, with nice flowers.... More

We stayed in one of the king motel rooms to the left of the cottages. It was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Wifi worked 90% of the time and worked well. TV had plenty of channels. Room was cleaned perfectly every day. Hotel had no vacancy but never heard a peep out of anyone else even the people next door.... More

My mom and I wanted to vacation in the Bar Harbor area for 3 nights. This was the perfect place. It's just outside Bar Harbor so it's a lot cheaper but close enough to drive back and forth. You can take the free shuttle that goes by the hotel but I don't recommend it. It's not a usual stop so... More

Our family stayed in room 9 for our trip to Bar Harbor. Lots of room for a family (3 double beds) for a great price!!! It was right across the street from a lobster pound and less than a block away from the Island Hopper so we didn't have to drive into Bar Harbor and try to find parking. Great... More

This is a traditional "motor court" motel. We had Unit 10 (King) in the motel. The room and bathroom were small, but very clean. We needed a place to sleep after touring Acadia National Park (very close), but we did not want to pay Bar Harbor rates. The Isleview fit the bill. It was not noisy. Very helpful owners.

We went for a little weekend getaway. Cottage was nice and clean. Pillows were a little flat but other than that everything was great. It is definitely a great place to stay at an extremely decent price.

We stayed here for two nights. It is small but comfortable. Very close to Acadia National Park. Very pleasant and helpful owner. We had two double beds. The bathroom and shower are very small. We would stay again.

The room was small but nice and clean. The hot water was out when we arrived, but the owner said that they were aware of the issue and were installing a new hot water heater and that if i came back in a few hours it would be hot and it was. We stayed in the hotel style room, just... More

We needed a place to sleep and shower for our 3-day trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It was the perfect place! Clean, comfortable, inexpensive and on a free bus line to get to Bar Harbor and Acadia. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and many within a 4 mile drive to Ellsworth.
