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

I booked the room last minute for a busy summer Saturday night. The room was clean, basic and so close to town. I walked everywhere and it was fine for a room for just sleep which is all I needed it for.

Looking for a one night stay in Bar Harbor on Labor Day weekend so that is a problem, many places have a 2 night minimum. Found this motel for $140 which was cheap for the area. Room really tired. Came back from dinner and large group of bikers sitting in lawn chairs under tree, they were old and gentle however,... More

We could not get reservations anywhere in town (Bar Harbor), so we chose to stay at the Anchorage Motel. The place has dated decor (wood paneling, etc.), but I must say that our room was spotlessly clean, enough towels and wash cloths, etc. Plenty of ice in the ice machine and ice buckets. We were on the first floor and... More

We had carpentar ants, called management. We were told there was nothing they could do tonight. The next morning we were told that we made more of a big deal out of this than it was. Tried to get out of second night or some type of compensation nothing was done. Would not recommend this place and it wasnt cheap

The only nice thing I can say about this place is that it is very convenient - just a block or two from the heart of the village. The compliments end there. If you are on a budget, want an in-town location, aren't fussy about cleanliness or comfort, don't mind waking up to the sounds of the guests in the... More

This hotel is basic and clean, just what we wanted. If you're looking at prices in the area you see they are very high. This hotel is inexpensive compared to others in the area. The staff is super nice and helpful. The location is superb. If you want basic, clean, and to save a few bucks this is the perfect... More

The room was not clean. There was mould on the faucet and on the curtin of the bathroom. Discosting pillow and very dated furniture. Great location but for the price you can get a much more better place to stay. I will never come back.
