We stayed here in October when we visited Bar Harbor for the Mount Desert Island Marathon. The motel is just a short walk from downtown and we barely needed to use our car once we arrived. I booked through Booking.com and got a great price for our two night stay. The staff was friendly and really made us feel welcome.... More

We stayed at the Aurora Inn for 4 nights this month while visiting Acadia National Park. The Inn is across the street from the Aurora Motel, which is where the office is located. The motel was closed for the season, and we were some of the last guests in the inn. The room was clean and comfortable with a microwave... More

We stayed 3 nights here as part of our tour of new England. Staff were wonderful, rooms were spotless and the location was excellent, just on the edge of downtown Bar harbor, but far enough away not to be bothered by noise. Breakfast is on the corner, and shared with Quality Inns. Perfectly acceptable with a reasonable choice of hot... More

First of all the motel is great. Good sized refrigerator, great coffee and a coffemaker and microwave in the room. Super breakfast is included. Walk 2 blocks to grocery store and 2 blocks to main street with all the restaurants and souvenir shops. The room is very clean and spacious. The manager Jerry has hiked every trail in Acadia and...

We have stayed here many times, and we keep coming back. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. The location is perfect, a short walk from the center of bar harbor. This year they also offer breakfast, which is a bonus. The manager is always very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Aurora Inn in August 2013. Our room was very quiet, spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. It was handy to have a frig, microwave and table & chairs to eat in our room when required. Also nice balcony to sit and relax at the end of a busy sightseeing day. Jerry our host was most helpful in... More

We stayed at the Aurora Inn for two nights in August. The Inn is very well placed downtown Bar Habor and the main shopping streets and restaurants are all in walking distance. Our room was nice and clean, not huge but more than large enough for us. The staff at the Inn was very helpful in giving advise on what... More

We stayed at the Aurora Inn for two nights and the accommodations were very satisfying. Room had frig and microwave amd we had free breakfasts just one block up the street. Only 5-10 minute walk to downtown. Room was not large but it was very reasonable and fine for just the two of us.

Stayed here for three nights last summer and found the location to be far enough from the touristy area of town, but a 5 minute walk from everything. The room was clean, comfortable, and very reasonably priced for Bar Harbor. Will stay here again next summer.

We stayed here during a recent trip to Bar Harbor, and really enjoyed the stay. The room was one of the lowest-priced in the town, but it was very nice. We were surprised at how much room we had (more than we expected), and were amazed by the level of service. The owner/manager bent over backwards to provide us with... More
