Fast check-in, I stayed in the back so the room was so quiet. That was wonderful for me. Front desk was very helpful and told us a lot of information. It was very close to Acadia National Park. We got up early to say the first sun rise in USA.

We rented 2 family rooms at this Motel and were very please with our experience. While the price is a bit high (as you can expect for any place in Bar Harbor), the rooms are kept clean and the customer service is very nice. We will definitely consider this place again.

We've stayed at this place twice before and we will probably stay here again, but I will definitely asked to be booked in a different section of the motel. This time we were on units that had carpeting over cement and it smelled very musty and caused my allergies to act up. Overall this place is good -- a great... More

We do know about this problem (see previous review and response) and we are aware that some people are more sensitive to it than others. But let us say that even though two people back to back have mentioned this same issue it really does not occur as often as this grouping would suggest. If you are reading this and... More

We booked a 2 room suite- front room with king bed, back room with 2 fulls. They gave us a rollaway so perfect for family of 5 and kids did not have to share beds. We moved an end table so the roll-away could fit. My only complaint was that the room had an odor. We got used to it... More

Because all of our buildings are made from concrete we've found that some of the rooms hold moisture. This moisture can at times create a "damp" smell. It happens rarely and our response is always the same. We would have immediately moved you to another room or if you chose not to move put in a dehumidifier for the remainder... More

We have stayed at the bar harbor motel before and we were pleasantly surprised by recent renovations to our room. We love the location- it is outside of town but a walkable distance & we also like that the property has easy access to the carriage trails.

We did do some renovations over the winter and are glad you enjoyed them. We plan on continuing to do more this coming winter, including some indoor painting and new carpeting. Hopefully, when we see you next year you'll be pleasantly surprised again. More

We booked a 2 bedroom family room for 2 nights. Our first impression on entering was the musty odour that permeated the rooms but this soon cleared on opening all windows which were equipped with integral insect screens for no bug entry inside. Room and bathroom were very clean. The complimentary coffee machine and fridge with freezer compartment was a... More

Even if you miss the last bus at 10pm there are several cab companies in town that will bring you back here for about $5. Or, if you're really in a bind you can walk from town safely on a sidewalk in about 20 minutes. Thanks for the review. Hope to see you again in the near future. More

The rooms were fine, the help was very courious, the breakfast options exceeded expetations but the wifi was terrible. The first night I spent an hour trying to send a small pdf to a client at 9:30 in the evening. Out of frustration I took my laptop and drove down and parked infront of the lobby and it was sent...

It's frustrating for us too. We have been struggling with these issues for a while now. The IT team we've hired has tried several different fixes over the course of the summer each to no avail. Just this week they have tried something else which seems to be producing better results. More testing is needed but everyone is hopeful and... More

Bar Harbor Motel is a great place to stay while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National park. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. We booked a family room with two bedrooms and it was clean and comfortable. Other great features included a nice pool, generous continental breakfast and direct hiking trail access to Acadia.

The Bar Harbor Motel is my go to place to stay when visiting Acadia National Park. I have stayed here every year...sometimes more than once... for the last 20 years. Always clean, always quiet and always the best in customer service.

Thank you very much. Not only for the nice review but for returning every year. Our business would falter without returning guests and each one is precious to us. More

The location is great. Right on the free bus stop into Bar Harbor. Actually close enough to walk. Very clean, rooms and bathrooms have been updated. Price considering the popularity of Bar Harbor lodging in the summer, was great. Nice breakfast included. Nice grounds and pool. All this and you get to park just outside your door. Highly recommended.

There have been a lot of mentions recently about the free shuttle that stops right in front of our mote, so we thought we'd take a moment to discuss it further. The bus system here is all free and goes to all the major towns on the island plus many parts of Acadia National Park. Service starts in late June... More
