We have stayed at the Anchorage Motel for quite a few years now and we have always been happy with the accommodation here. They are right in town so you do not have to worry about parking or driving around the tight, busy streets of Bar Harbor. The rooms are nothing fancy but if you are looking for an affordable...

it was easy walking distance to downtown bars and restaurants and moderately priced, other than that slightly below average in everything else. The bath was very small and needs paint. Ok, for a night.

Motel was clean and convenient. WiFi worked well. We walked to town where parking can be hard to find. My biggest complaint was hearing the people upstairs walking around all night. The decor was a little dated but for the convenience to town and Acadia National Park it worked just fine.

wifi not working. I don't mind the no thrills but some of the cost cutting goes too far. I need a real pillow. The beds are doubles some couples might not be able to sleep in these. I could hear a full normal conversation in the hall and neighboring room. TripAdvisor is asking me to add more words so I'll... More

The Anchorage is close enough to Bar Harbor that we could walk to town, shops, restaurants and especially the free buses to attractions in Acadia National Park. The rooms are dated but clean, the wifi was at best so-so. The air conditioner worked fine, the bed though not great was okay (we were able to sleep) the shower was good.... More

Stayed the night here on 11 August 2015. In short, our tent took a dive that was unrecoverable in the rain. The Anchorage had a room - 2 doubles, nonsmoking, $169 before tax (total $189 after). Clean! Good water pressure! Close to the Green! We all slept well, no worries, reasonably quiet (it's a motel for crying out loud, so... More

As stated by many, stay for the great location and acces to downtown Bar Harbor. Mattresses were fifteen years beyond their useful life and although the the rooms were clean, they smelled musty. Also wondered whether they may have allowed pets to stay in the rooms, given allergic reactions and sneezing fits we had. Thin walls, sticky headboards didn't add... More

We stayed at the Anchorage to enjoy the value and the short walk into town. The hotel was clean, which is unlike some other hotels on the island at this price point. But the bed was probably the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced. There was no fridge, which I thought was unfortunate. The location was excellent, but I'm not sure... More

Always lots to see and do in Bar Harbor and the hotel is walking distance to the centre of town. Property is well maintained.

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.
