Our stay of 4 days at the Bar Harbor Hotel was GREAT! It was more than all you could expect. Clean, comfortable, modern. The staff was exceptional. They provided events in the evening to entertain and evolve the guest. I had a tire emergency on my rental car and they knew just where for me to get it fixed. Highly... More

Such a pleasant surprise. The layout is fun. The rooms are super clean. The staff was friendly and informative. Everything about this place was fantastic - it is not a high-end establishment but it is very comfortable. We had 4 people in our group - 2 adults and 2 teens. The adults were in the front room (incredibly comfortable bed)... More

It was our first time staying at the Bar Harbor Motel, and we would definitely stay there again. Cool layout, with a number of small buildings containing a handful of rooms, spread out among the property. Sort of felt like a combination motel/resort/summer camp. Lovely outdoor pool and beautiful grounds. Laundry on site. Standard continental breakfast far, with the addition... More

Thank you for this kindhearted review. The last sentence especially caught our attention - " It has much more character than some of the somewhat soulless chain hotels and fancy, expensive resorts in Bar Harbor." Because of the nature of our grounds and because we are an independent hotel we can do things here (like wiffle ball games, trivia nights,... More

This motel is sweet. The motel is equipped with air conditioning and heat which was a definite plus for us. We used both when we visited recently. The staff were so helpful and knowledgeable about the Acadia National Park area and restaurants. The breakfast area is cleaned constantly. The site is about 2 minutes to Bar Harbor and 2 minutes...

Thank you. You made an excellent point in your review and that is the mention of the AC/Heat. Because we experience large fluctuations in temperature (especially in the spring) it is not unusual to have the AC on during the day and then have to switch it to the heat at night. For anyone planning on visiting us in the... More

This was the last stop on our vacation. It was also the best stop of our vacation. The room was huge. Very clean. The bathroom was very large and spotless. The staff was extremely nice and very helpful. It was a quiet family friendly place. Nice pool and a couple of big swings under a tree. We were only there... More

We had a family suite which was perfect for three adults and two children. There was plenty of space and the room was very clean. The staff on site are excellent, very friendly and helped us to book tickets for a nature tour and fishing trip (at a discounted rate too!). They have daily activities for kids/families (trivia, etc.) There... More

From the first call to book the room the service was excellent. We asked to stay in a specific area and they accommodated our two families. Very clean rooms and great service at the desk. The pool was clean and clear. A pleasure to stay there again.

We have stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel twice and enjoyed it both times. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The excellent location is close to town and provides easy access to the Acadia Nat. Park carriage roads.

Location outstanding. Walk to town on a scenic route. Latter part of June, LL Bean bus service to Acadia National Park and town center is conveniently located in front of the motel. Outstanding narrated nature cruise located across the street. Property takes you back in time. Great place to return to after a day of hiking. Pool 80 degrees and... More
