2 mothers and 3 (older) children stayed at the Bar Harbor Motel for 3 nights of outdoor adventure and all of us give it a thumbs up. The staff was exceptionally friendly and a highlight of our time was "trivia night" in the community room with other guests. Each day the staff offered a unique fun activity on the property....

We are a family of 5 - so finding a hotel/morel can be challenging for us. Bar Harbor Motel was perfect. King size bed in the front room and 2 queens in the back room was just perfect. My children loved the trivia night and free breakfast was a bonus. Great place for families.

We only stayed two nights but will absolutely be back in the future. The location is great - just outside Acadia NP and convenient to "downtown" Bar Harbor. If you want to bike ride the Carriage Trails - which I highly recommend - you can start on a trail that is connected to the property. We rented a two-room suite... More

I have stayed at th BHM many times over the years. Formerly family owned, the motel has received many upgrades from the current ownership. The new bathrooms are excellent as are the beds. We had a California king size bed which was great. As always, the accommodations were super clean. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The location is very... More

Thank you for returning again and again. We're so glad that you continue to find the hotel to your liking. There is a misconception about the ownership that your review will allow me to settle. You imply that the current ownership is not "family owned." And in a way this is false. The property is owned by one man and... More

Our road trip took us to Bar Harbor, Maine to see Acadia National Park. I did a lot of research and found this place to fit my family perfectly. The best thing about this motel is how child and family friendly they are. Once I saw the photos of the playground, I knew this was spot to stay. I was... More

Very clean, nice rooms. Set aside in little "pods" of 8 or so rooms. Provides a quiet atmosphere. Staff are friendly & accomdating & provide family activities every day. Carriage paths are easily accessible from the hotel & the free shuttle stops right out front to take you to town.

We enjoyed our second stay at the Bar Harbor Motel. The staff again was exceptionally helpful. We also enjoyed the daily breakfast which is included with the room. The hotel is well located between the entrance to Acadia National Park and the town of Bar Harbor.

My family vacationed at the Bar Harbor Motel in July 2015. Overall we found it to be a comfortable and affordable place to stay. The accommodations were nice, the staff was super helpful and friendly, and we found it to be a great value for the price we paid.

This review brightened our day. Thank you. Value - it's a subjective idea and one that varies from guest to guest, but providing value is our main goal. Guests in any hotel are disappointed only when they're perceived "value" is not met. We strive to meet or exceed everyone's perceived value and we're glad you felt we succeeded. Thank you... More

Liked that the hotel was on a hiking trail. Staff was very friendly and made sure we had everything we need to make our stay great. It was also close to downtown and you could walk. Breakfast was more than I expected. The muffins were fresh and the kids enjoyed the selection
