Cabin - Not worth the rate they charged. Beds were not comfortable and old. One small air conditioner that did not cool the whole cabin. No extra pillows, old and outdated decor. Bathroom was tiny and the toilet had issues. Did not flush well and even had to be fixed as the chain fell off the handle. However, it was... More

Stayed there in August. It is in a good location and the room is relatively clean. However, my vision is not as good as I was young. Although I spent over half hour to chase and kill the mosquitoes in the room in the night, I still found three fat mosquitoes in the morning and my boy was bitten by... More

We felt this place was a great deal. It was really affordable, had a comfortable bed, great water pressure in the shower and was clean, what I want in a basic hotel stay. Also, Terry at the front desk was fantastic. He was full of great pointers and recommended some places to go as it was our first time to... More

Barton's Motel is something of a throwback to the early 60s, reminding me of trips with my parents. Whatever nostalgia my wife or I might have felt was quickly dissipated by the overwhelming chemical smell of bleach that pervaded our room, which seemed to come from the linens that reeked of whatever detergent they had been washed with. My wife's... More

Our first trip to this region, came for the activities and the park, not needing a resort with room service and tons of amenities. This was exactly what we were looking for, CLEAN room, comfy clean bed! quiet location, we took a cabin, got some great sleep, and back out into town and the park! We're coming back in 3... More

Entering Barton's is similar to going back and living in the 1950's. After getting past that, ambience isn't everything. Beds are comfy, sheets and rooms are clean and prices are MORE than reasonable. Having stayed in both the motel and the cottages I've felt completely relaxed. Since the property is in the Hull's Cove area, it's just a bout 5-7... More

A perfect motel for buget conscious travelers. For under $65 we had a clean room, comfortable bed, WiFi, cable TV, microwave, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, and a good night's sleep. Tub, shower, and sink of course. The facilities are dated, but well maintained. There are chairs outside where you can relax. Another review comments on noise, but what we hear... More

The hotel is easily accessible, close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There are spacious and clean rooms. Terry, the owner is friendly and helpful. The parking is free and a lot of green around. You can make also barbeque. There is no breakfast, nor hair dryer.
