Stayed in King Bedroom #207, Aug 21-23, 2015, 2nd floor unit with no balcony, $170 ish per night. Motel is as described, we loved the location just down the road about 1/2 mile from everything, close enough where we just walked to everything and avoided the parking and traffic hassle, as well as nice and quiet near the brook.

My wife and I stayed here four nights and had a wonderful time. Large room, nice quiet pool, friendly helpful staff only some of the reasons we would recommend this hotel. It is a quick walk to downtown, which makes the hotel much quieter. There are many nice hotels in the area but we were glad we chose this one.

We stayed at the Cromwell for 7 nights and enjoyed our visit very much. The motel is privately owned and operated. We had a first floor unit and were very satisfied with our accommodations. Our room was large and clean. The beds were comfortable. Although the bathroom was very small, it meet your needs. There were clean towels and the... More

We stayed three nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and very clean. The owners were very accommodating when we decided to stay an extra night and our room wasn't available by adding a folding bed to one of the open king rooms.

Nice, well-kept grounds, Heated pool. Quiet.There's an athletic field between hotel & 1st shop. It's only 2/10 of a mile from downtown. Everything is within walking distance. Acadia National Park is just a few miles away. I would definately stay here again.

Have stayed at Cromwell Harbor Motel 3 of the last 5 years. Short walk to downtown restaurants and shopping. Close to Acadia park access. Motel rooms are spacious and clean. Property is well kept and completely smoke free. Highly recommended!

The Cromewell Harbor Motel was what we expected, it had clean rooms was reasonable priced and within walking distance of town. The weather was good so we were able to use the pool. The people (owners?) behind the front desk were very nice and helpful. There are several sizes of rooms so you need to ask for a larger room... More

This is a non-chain, family-run motel. Our 2nd floor room was clean and very roomy. Included a coffee-maker, microwave and small refrigerator. No elevator so you have to be able to climb stairs (which we knew when we booked). No breakfast provided but 5 minutes to Coffee Cup cafe. We were able to walk into town which meant we didn't...

The room is spacious but minimally furnished right out of the '80's. The room included a Mimi fridge and microwave as well as a 4 cup coffee pot, but unless you bring your own food it doesn't help (we can't find a market anywhere). There are few amenities; no breakfast of any kind, no newspapers, shampoo only in the bathroom... More
