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!

This is a nice clean place with easy access to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It is on the route for the free bus as well. We had a two room accommodation. The furninshings are average but comfortable and clean. Beds were comfy. When my husband complained of an odor it was dealt with immediately. One night we didn't... More

The staff was extremely helpful and engaging. Had activities planned for the kids. The pool was temporarily unheated and they invited us to use two other hotel pools nearby. Carriage trails conveniently connected to the property. Clean. Perfect for families!

Thank you for this bighearted review. We appreciate your understanding during that week that our pool heater was not operating. We honestly want all of our guests to have a nice experience and when something like that happens (and the fix is determined by an outside source with their own timetable) we are in many ways more upset than the...
