I am usually skeptical about motels, but Highbrook Motel really took me by surprise. The room smelt fresh and was impeccably clean! Cleanness is the most important criterion for me, so needless to say that this motel scored huge with me. The bathroom was spotless, with no trace of soap scum or mildew even at the toughest corners. The shower... More

About 1 mile outside of the hustle and bustle of bar harbor is the highbrook motel. It looks like a nicer version of the bates hotel from the outside but don't let that put you off, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean but VERY outdated. It's like I'm visiting my grandparents every time I open the door... More

I found the Highbrook Motel on the internet and the reviews were excellent so I booked it for 3 nights. My wife and I were extremely impressed. We have stayed in some motels before where you wish you never opened the door. This motel is immaculate. The property is well maintained, it is in a great location for Bar Harbor... More

From the road the Highbrook Motel appears to be nothing particularly special, just another 60's style motor hotel, which it is. Difference is (and why this property receives so many excellent reviews) the motel is has an extremely high pride of ownership. First impression is "nice, but just a motel", but after looking around one notices how clean everything is,... More

Highbrook was such a great place to stay on me and my wife's recent vacation to Bar Harbor. From the Midwest, we knew nothing of the region. The owners and front desk personnel were extremely helpful in pointing out attractions, local companies, restaurants, and tips to make things easier. I strongly believe our trip would not have been as amazing... More

This is a friendly and clean motel a few minutes drive from the center of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Our room was large and functional, and it was nice to have breakfast sitting in the morning sun in front of the room. Breakfast was grab & go, very efficient but maybe a bit wasteful in terms of trash... More

We recently spent three nights at the Highbrook Motel. I believe it is the cleanest motel/hotel we have ever stayed at. I even saw them wiping down the top of the outside door and the door itself. We stayed in a room that was in the back building located on the hill. It was incredibly quiet. It was a great... More

Who would have thought that an "old-style" motel could be so pleasant. Our room was in the back building and was large and quiet. The bed was the most comfortable ever -- even better than ours at home! Although dated, the room seemed to be newly painted and IMMACULATE. The housekeeper even dusted the fittings on the screen door! Breakfast... More

My husband and I found Highbrook Motel on the web and booked three nights there. Price and rating were definite factors in this choice. I have to say that in driving by we would not have stopped there to book a room but are so glad we chose this motel! What a great place to stay. We had a mini-suite... More
