We stayed here for 2 nights (last 2 nights actually) and found it a very pleasant stay. The wifi was very good, the room was quiet and comfortable, good shower, clean room, polite staff, PLENTY of parking even when it was a full motel on Saturday we got a space and just a minute walk to Main Street. They even... More

Great Location: a short walk to the center. Very poor WiFi and Poor front desk service: 2 days before our stay I wrote an email asking for booking confirmation... still waiting for an answer. Checking out all we got is a credit card receipt, we asked for a detailed invoice and the front desk lady answered they didn't have it,... More

A short walk to town, pet friendly, and nice owners...plus it's one of the less expensive motels around the area. No frills. But comfortable. If you're not spending alot of time in the room, if you're in Bar Harbor to DO STUFF...here's your 'get'.

We were already staying in Bar Harbor and were enjoying our stay, so we decided to stay an extra night. Our hotel was full, so we booked into Anchorage for one night (Sat. 11 Oct) - the last night of our holiday. The day before our stay, as we were walking past we called in to request as quiet a...

The best thing about the Anchorage is the location which puts you in the midst of all the tourist stuff. It was a bit overdue for updating (I.e., holes in blankets, old bedspreads) and poorly made beds with sheets not properly tucked in, etc. there was a hair dryer but it was not very strong so it was a good...

We have stayed here every year in the fall (Sept./ Oct.) for quite a while now and we have no complaints. The place is nothing fancy but the room rates are reasonable by Bar Harbor standards. If you want fancy you can find fancy and pay $300 or more per night for a room. Anchorage Motel is clean, comfortable and... More

After a lot of research and review reading, I booked the Anchorage Motel for our two day trip to Bar Harbor. I knew that I was not booking a four star hotel so I was not expecting anything extraordinary. Anchorage had the cheapest price for location we wanted, so we were willing to sacrifice the star rating. We pulled in... More

My wife just spent 2 nights here. Arrived with no reservations we were given a good rate, everyone in the office at all times were very pleasant. Room was clean sure a bit dated but what do you expect for a small town Motel! Walls and cieling do pass noise but won't kill you. Overall worth the 99.00 per night.

We checked into the Anchorage basically due to availability and location (within walking distance to heart of town). When we opened the room door... all the windows are open. Not a good sign seeing it was chilly. My husband goes to lay down on the bed and I freaked! Everything from the bedspreads, curtains, carpets -- was like walking into... More

Made a last minute booking to stay. Location was very good, just a short walk to the village. Room was of a good size. Wifi was free, although was very slow. Our room was on the second level and noise from those walking past could easily be heard. Price for the area was good compared to those hotels right in... More
