This motel complex, nestled into a small valley, is quiet, clean and pleasant. It was a good base from which to explore Acadia National Park. It's on a bus route, too, which means it's easy to get around on the free buses that get you into the park proper and the township of Bar Harbour. The rooms are big. Like... More

Bar Harbor Motel is a nice facility with a friendly and responsive staff. Nice breakfast selection, the double chocolate muffin was my favorite! Near Bar Harbor enough for a brisk walk to/from. Very close to Acadia, a beautiful national park where you must take in a sun rise!

Four of us stayed here for 3 nights on October 16th. This place was great. Motel was centrally located along with others in the area with a great steak house next door and minutes from downtown Bar Harbor. The motel is split into buildings holding probably 4-5 rooms connected with approximately 10 or buildings spread throughout this large facility. Each... More

Thank you for this generous review. We're glad you and your friends had an enjoyable stay with us. Just to clarify for future guests - at this time we do not have a "hot" breakfast. Our breakfast currently consists of several kinds of muffins, bagels, and cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt. More

I recently visited Bar Harbor, Maine back in October for my friends 30th Birthday. My friends arrived Oct 4th; I arrived the next afternoon. I was greeted by 2 extremely friendly and professional gentlemen, I apologize I've forgotten both of their names. I had initially went to the Front Desk to ask if it would be an issue if we... More

People that work in hospitality are often the most difficult to please because they know where the pitfalls are, where the skeletons are kept, and where laziness and uncaring rear their heads. So, to hear that you were satisfied brings us joy. Thank you for this generous review. More

Was a great place to stay as it was a very convenient location to downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia Park and if we come back north to the area would definitely stay here again.Staff was very friendly and our reservations were handled professionally

The words "friendly" and "professional" are not mutually exclusive. We know a lot of businesses struggle with doing both at the same time, but that is what we strive for. Thank you for noticing and for alerting others (by way of Trip Advisor) of your pleasurable experience. More

Would highly recommend this motel for a friends or family stay in Bar Harbor. Good location close to downtown and waterfront (short drive), Very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff and more than adequate free continental breakfast. All for a great $ value.

Thank you for this kindhearted review. We generally do cookies during the early spring and late fall - they are a nice treat during the cooler months especially if you time it right and get them warm out of the oven. More

Although just off the main road into Bar Harbor (Route 3), you are set back enough to feel peace and quiet. We liked the fact that the property borders the National Park so you can walk right onto trails. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Fresh fruits are available all day and evening and breakfasts are quite ample. I... More
