The front desk staff was friendly, the property was very clean and the rooms were clean. The motel was very quiet and we were there for the 4th of July. We were very impressed and would definitely come back.

A three minute stroll to the Village Green (and Mt Dessert Ice Cream) and 8 minute drive to Park Loop Road, this affordable motel has the basics. Clean, great hot showers, AC that works and reasonable beds. Think "50s" motif and no frills (including no iron or ironing board.) We were out all day and into the night so who... More

But that's about it. It's pretty dated and dingy. It's was fairly expensive for a middle of the week stay, 130. If you want to be comfortable in your room I'd look elsewhere. The front desk called us at 1045am to tell us to leave at 11. It was not a friendly reminder, it was "you need to leave".

We wanted to be close to the view and shops and that's what we got. 3 night stay with our 2 teenage boys. Interior is dated and walls are paper thin but we didn't expect more for the price. We could hear everything that happened in the parking lot at night. Everything was very clean and we'll serviced each day.... More

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
