We stayed for two nights in Aug 2014 in a large two room unit. The beds were comfortable and rooms were cleaned. Staff was VERY friendly. They had tea, coffee or lemonade in the lobby at all times. Breakfast was nice and fresh: hardboiled eggs, yougart, blueberry muffins, bagels (blueberry), toast, english muffins, cereal, coffee, tea, juice. Location was nice... More

The manager is a gem. His advice was always perfect and helped make our Bar Harbor stay as nice as we could wish. His staff are pleasant and helpful. They rate far more than five! The motel itself is just yards from the entrance to the national park--very convenient.

Our accommodations were just what any traveler hopes to encounter. The room was spacious, thoughtfully laid out and absolutely spotless. The person who cleaned the room was a credit to the Bar Harbor Motel. The complimentary bus transportation picked us up in front of the motel. Very convenient! The people at the desk greeted us warmly and enthusiastically responded to... More

We stayed here during the last week of August and loved everything about this motel! The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Our five year old loved the grounds and it was great for her to ride her bike as well as push her doll carriage around! The heated pool was an extra nice touch! The staff are exceptionally courteous... More

We appreciate all kinds of feedback. It's vital that our guests let us know about hikes they liked, swimming places, walks, explored shoreline, scenic overlooks, restaurants, shops, museums, boat trips, etc. Equally important is the feedback from guests on what they didn't like including things we can improve on or a small repair that might need to be done in...

My husband and I took our 2 kids and stayed here as an alternative to camping. Major upgrade from a tent! Convenient shuttle bus took us into the park to see the sights. The path from the hotel took us to Witch's Hole for a hike. Simple, clean room, nice quiet setting, and a very family friendly place overall.

Bar Harbor Motel has everything we are looking for in accomodations--great value for the $, cleanliness, a good breakfast and great service. We particularly like the bike shed and access to the Acadia Bike trails. Thanks for a great visit to Bar Harbor.

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.

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!

Thank you for this nice review. Just to clarify for anyone considering us - our breakfast is not hot. It is a continental style breakfast with bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, fresh fruit, and hard boiled eggs. More

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

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
