The room was spotless and huge. Very close to everything in Bar Harbor and Acadia. Owners were polite and helpful. Perfect stay. I couldn't get over how big the room was. I would recommend this to everyone!

We were on a visit to Maine for the foliage in October and our visit to Bar Harbor ended taking more time than planned, so we cancelled my reservation I had in Bangor and instead found a place to stay in Bar Harbor. I was driving by and saw the Highbrook Motel. I pulled over to a parking lot to... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during a trip through Maine in August. It was peak season and many of the hotels and motels in the area were quite expensive. We had stayed in Bar Harbor twice before, and we were not impressed with the motels (cleanliness and costs) we used on our previous visits. We called last minute to... More

About a mile outside Bar Harbor but there is a free bus which stops by the motel every half hour from 8am to 8pm. On the main road into town but because it is set back from the road up a hill it was lovely and quiet. Breakfast was grab and go but really generous. Only 28 rooms and family... More

We stayed two of nights at the Highbrook and found it to be charming, comfortable, and clean. Our room had a queen bed with two wingback chairs, table, flat screen TV and nightstands. In addition to the bathroom, an additional sink, vanity and mirror located outside the bathroom made it easy for both of us to get ready for our... More

Cleanliness is the most important thing to me when staying in a motel or hotel. Our Highbrook room was spotless! The bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly and the breakfast really goes above and beyond what you normally get for a free motel breakfast. This was a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely stay here again on... More

What a bargain. Yes, it is an older motel, but that just made it charming. The first thing that struck me was how clean the room was. The fixtures in the bathroom sparkled and even the grout was clean, The carpet was also spotless. The Highbrook has everything the big chains have at a fraction of the price. Big comfortable...

We were very surprised by the Highbrook. Staff was extremely friendly. Nice continental breakfast. We had one the larger rooms in the back section so we did not get any road noise. Comfortable beds. Very quiet (except for some noisy folks next door.) Very convenient to town. Would recommend.

Highbrook Motel was everything we were looking for the location is great, the rates were affordable and the room was nice, clean and well maintained. The motel's location is ideal and is well connected by Island explorer bus to either visit Acadia National Park or to go downtown. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Bar Harbor.

Highly recommend. While an older hotel, extremely clean, quiet & comfy bed. Continental breakfast better than average. Staff very nice. Convenient location. It would be convenient if there was a sidewalk/path from the upper bldg (where we stayed) to the main bldg where the continental breakfast is offered.
