I booked 3 cottages for my family. It turned out one family couldn't make the trip so we had 2 cottages between us. My daughter's had 2 bedrooms, a nice living room and a full kitchen and bath. It was adequate for 2 adults and 2 children. The kitchen appliances were old, but they worked. They have a dog and... More

First re "affordability," rates seem to have ***doubled*** since the $78 quotes from a couple years ago. This review would be more forgiving if <100. I don't believe in spending much for expensive lodging that creates sense of obligation or excessive desire to "stay in". In this case, though, we went into bar harbor (and spending $$ eating out) on... More

we stayed in one of the cottages with a little porch in the front. Very nice, quiet, small, but it was all that we needed. Had a tv, small fridge. Nothing fancy, but practical and reasonably priced. Would definitely return there.

Bartons was one of the few motels on the island that allowed less than a one week stay while also offering a wee kitchen and two bedrooms. We were perfectly aware that we weren't staying in deluxe accommodations and Bartons suited our needs perfectly. We had a two burner kitchenette and wee fridge that allowed us to cook a hearty...

Just got back from a trip to Bar Harbor with our motorcycle crew, 4 riders Harley D,s. After spending some time looking for a place to stay we found Barton's with the great sign "Reasonable Rates". It was true to the image of a 1960's style motel....clean, neat, cheap, and great location with friendly owner Terry. learned a lot about... More

We have been staying at Barton's for years and found it quiet, comfortable and most accommodating to our needs. There are areas in back of it for quiet walks. The location is great--very close to the entrance to Acadia National Park and a short drive from the heart of Bar Harbor with its many shops and restaurants. We love it.

This was my second motel in Bar Harbor. The price is okay, but for what you get, it's not a bargain. Upon check-in, the front desk staff was friendly. The room was large, with two queen beds, a desk to sit at, and a table for eating. While okay, the whole place looked worn around the edges. It could certainly... More

This is an older property conveniently located to Bar Harbor and Acadia. We stayed in the motel. I liked having a fridge in the room and being able to do laundry on property. The room didn't have a hair dryer but one was available at the desk. It appeared the bathroom had recently been redone. Nothing fancy but met my... More

This was the second time we stayed here only this time we stayed in the cabins. 3 adults and a 4yr old. These are not luxury cabins but they are clean, and convieient to Bar Harbor and Acadia. They are also reasonably priced. Our cabin had a kitchenette, we didn't use but if we stayed longer than 2 nights we... More

I stayed in one of the cottages (not the motel), and was quite happy with my stay. The cottage was simple but very clean. There are a few cottages across the street from the motel, with most occupied but barely noticed anyone else - although there is traffic noise during the day, it's quiet at night. I found it well...
