I booked the Bar Harbor Motel after a family member had recommended it. It is located just one mile from the activity of the town, which is easily accessed via the Island Explorer shuttle which has a stop in front of the hotel! You can get just about anywhere you want to go in Bar Harbor (including Acadia) on the... More

A wonderful stay at The Bar Harbor Motel. Wife and I stayed in 2001 and thought it was comfortable, convenient, cozy and clean. We came back for vacation a few weeks ago and feel the same exact way. We love the heated pool, which was warm and clean with plenty of towels. We loved our room so much. It was... More

This motel is within walking distance from the town of Bar Harbor or a five minute drive. It has a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. The general manager (Jack) is especially helpful in guiding places to visit and keeping the place in immaculate shape. Breakfast is a wonderful display that rivals a cruise ship buffet. The breakfast room attendant was... More

We spent 2 nights here and we would definitely come back again. The room was large enough for a family...we had a 2 room suite. The front room had a King size bed and the back room had 2 double beds....perfect for traveling with our 2 adult sons. Everything was clean and well kept. The location was great and you... More

We stayed with our two kids (ages 7 and 4) for six nights in July. We are extremely happy that we stumbled upon the Bar Harbor Motel when researching places to stay. The staff were incredible--so friendly and helpful! They were always asking what they could do to help and what they could do to make our stay better. It's... More

We have been visiting the Bar Harbor Motel for many years. It's location is terrific and the 2 bedroom family units are perfect for us. My 2 adult children (19 & 20) stay in one bedroom and they can close the door and stay up as long as they want without disturbing us. During previous stays the WiFi was a... More

Thank you for choosing us again this year. We did change how our wifi system works this past winter and seems (as you noted) it is working well in all rooms. See you next year. More

The price is right. We stayed in a family room and the kids had their own beds, in their own room. No musical beds! The rooms were a little damp but that could have been solely because of the weather; we will never know. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Breakfast was fine. Nothing to write home about, but... More

Bar Harbor has a lot of choices but this brings a great balance of value, location, great service and was really clean. We were very close to downtown Bar Harbor for restaurants and the pleasant atmosphere and Acadia was a few turns away. For those that want to take the free Acadia shuttles one can pick them up right by... More

Bar Harbor Motel was just what we were looking for when we decided to travel to Acadia National Park. When I made our reservations, the staff was so friendly. When we arrived, the grounds were clean and full of laughter as families were playing in the pool and on the swing set. Our room had easy access and was very... More

My friends and I wanted a clean, budget-friendly place and Bar Harbor Motel was perfect for that. Everything was clean, the staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and attentive, and the breakfast was plenty. I would imagine this would be great for families, too!
