Read the reviews and know they are true. The Bar Harbor Motel is a classic New England motel but have outdone the local competition with their service and their absolute committment to your happiness. There are many properties in Bar Harbor but none have the level of customer service as the Bar Harbor motel. The rooms are clean, the ammenities... More

This nice independent property has a wonderful location - only hotel to have walk-in access to Acadia National Park, along with a yummy buffet hot breakfast, large swimming pool and exceedingly friendly staff, AND on the free bus route into Bar Harbor!

Definitely lives up to its great reviews! Lots of little details that show they are in the hospitality business for all the right reasons. I emailed before we came to tell them about my daughter's asthma, and Aaron responded right away. They put us in a room at the top of the hill which was dry and perfect for us.... More

Thanks to TA we found this motel. Very good location, bus stops at the door or it's a 10-15 min walk to town. We booked a 2 room family suite for 4 nights, very large bathroom, impeccably clean. The grounds and pool are very clean and well kept. Good cont breakfast, they had a full time person cleaning up after... More

Thank you for the generous review. Your idea of providing picnic tables for the buildings at the back of the property is an excellent one and something we should have thought of ourselves. Thank you, and we will definitely make this change for next season. More

Just leaving after a 6 night stay. overall good find-- friendly staff, good continental breakfast, and good proximity to downtown. The drawback was lack of wifi in room--- needed to go into lobby to get consistent free service, so this was a hassle--- in description it says-- wifi should work in rooms doesn't say will !! be aware!!--- pool setting...

As we've discussed in previous posts we understand the wifi does not work in all rooms on a consistent basis. What we are finding after this latest round of changes by the IT team is that most of property seems to be okay but that there are still some weak points for which they are now developing a plan to...

Was there in August with 3 other couples. We loved the huge rooms, and that we were very private with the configuration of the motel. Management were very accommodating & didn`t charge our friends for the night when they had to go unexpectedly to Bangor hospital to do translation service. Only negative, could use an extra toaster in the breakfast... More

It was not an issue for us to let your friends check out late with no charge. Our only hope is that she got the care she needed and is now feeling better. We check the settings on our toaster before we open each morning and then periodically throughout breakfast; however, there are guests that alter the settings (even though... More

So when we travel with our kids we normally hit the chains and find a deal with free breakfast. But there is no such thing in Bar Harbor, Maine. So we used the rank the hotels at tripadvisor and looked for the one that rates high but priced reasonable ( $150/nt). BINGO Bar Harbor Motel! DOUBLE BONUS : They offer... More

Great idea for finding the place you want at the price you want. Glad you chose us and that we were able to exceed most of your expectations and by the sounds of it even did a little better in some aspects than the chain hotels you stayed on during your trip. We appreciate the kind words and hopefully will... More

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
