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

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed everything. We were within walking distance to everything you could possibly do. Its just outside of Bar harbor so the noise is limited. The room was great and the bed was comfortable. The pool was an added plus. The Cromwell is so neat and clean with beautiful flower gardens everywhere. We hope to... More

My son and I stayed at the Cromwell Harbor Motel for 3 nights and loved the location. Everyone working at the Cromwell was very friendly and gave great advice for dining and activities. The room was clean and very accommodating for our needs. The TV was a bit small given the distance from the beds (our preferred place to watch... More

Just outside of town, we could walk in and be in the center of the hub-bub within 10 minutes. Easy to bike out to the paths by Jordan Pond and Eagle Lake using a back road. Made for a great trip to the island.

After searching for days online for a motel in Bar Harbor I decided on the Cromwell turned out it was a great choice. It was spotless inside and out and a very short walk to downtown which is great because parking is hard to find. Would definitely recommend this motel.
