We traveled to Bar Harbor and found the Park Entrance after a very bad experience at another motel nearby. (Knights Inn/White Birches-Ellsworth/Bar Harbor) . We walked away from Knights Inn (it was filthy) and since most places were booked, the Tourist Info Center sent us to Park Entrance since they had a room available. It was an older motel but...

This place looked great in the photographs on their website and wasn't cheap to lodge there, but when we got there we realized the place is a dump! There's a great view of the ocean, and its just across the street from the entrance to Acadia National Park (which is awesome) but whoever runs this place has no idea how... More

Checked online ahead of time but didn't book as we were unsure of arrival day. It sounded good BUT the only good thing was the friendly staff and the view. Patio screen was all holes, needed replacement which they removed so we had no screen to open - NO AC either. Rugs need replacing, worn and stained badly. DON'T LOOK... More

We stayed here for two nights in August of 2008 and for the price the motel was a true value. It is not new or fancy, but it was quiet. Many places to stay in Bar Harbor are not quiet due to being set directly next to the busy Route 3/Eden Road. The Park Entrance Oceanfront is set back away... More

We had booked a night at the Day's Inn down the road. They overbooked before we arrived and we were sent to this 'sister property'. This place was scary, but we knew there were few alternatives in Bar Harbor in August. The door was wide open with lights on when we got to the room. I suppose one of the... More

We stayed at the motel in August 2006.My boys loved the pool, and the short walk down to the ocean were they found shells, rocks, and played in the salt water. We had everything we needed for a great vacation. Acadia National park right down the road. The motel was in need of some fixing up but nothing that spoiled... More

We stayed here because we planned on biking the carriage trails in Acadia. The motel is only 500 feet from the entrance to the park!! We rode from our room to the trail. The room was very clean and spacious. We were given a handicap accessible room (although we are not). It was great because we could roll the bikes... More
