This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and we had a great time. Bar Harbor is on Mount Desert Island and we went there because some friends told us about Acadia National Park. The park is beautiful and the Sea Breeze is only about a 2 minute drive to the park. We loved driving in the long drive way... More

We go up to visit Acadia National Park once a year but we had never stayed at the Sea Breeze before until last fall. My friends did not want to stop there because it has some bad reviews but I pulled in just to have a look. We took room 204 and had a very good stay for 3 nights.... More

We have stayed in lots of hotels but this one has the best natural view I have ever seen. There are no rooftops or power lines between you and the ocean view. We stayed in the penthouse and it has a private porch with an expansive view of boats coming and going and islands in the distance. My wife and... More

We had a very good stay at the Sea Breeze Motel. The fall colors were terrific last September and I am booking our next trip now because the ocean view rooms go fast at the Sea Breeze. I would not stay on the back side where there is no view. Perhaps the bad reviews posted here are from people who... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a random, late in the season, trip. I didn't do much research (since it was last minute) and figured how bad can it be. We were pleasantly surprised after passing a few other motels along the way when we entered. Although it wasn't what I had imagined from all of the... More

My girlfriend booked a room here on Sunday and then found out Monday that her Grandfather died and will be unable to keep the reservation, according to the manager we both spoke to they refused to give even a partial refund or a credit for a future stay. It goes against their 14 day cancellation policy. I asked for the... More

I stayed here with my husband between the 6th August and 8th August. We were with a tour group that was meant to be camping but it was torrential rain and my husband and I booked in here as most other places were booked up. We paid 613.80 USD to stay at this dump. The bed wasn't put together properly... More

Despite this negative review, we would stay here again. On arrival at Sea Breeze Motel we witnessed a guest being turned away with no room available. The fact that the man had paid to reserve a room held no sway. He was dispatched to find alternate lodging late that afternoon in a remote area with few-to-no economy rooms. We had... More

We got caught without a reservation on a busy weekend in Bar Harbor and grabbed this place off the internet. It is a choice of last resort. The room was clean, but the screen to the deck had come off the track and there was no one available to do the repair, so did it myself. Read the fine print.... More

This place is unbelievably bad! You can't make this stuff up. We knew as soon as we walked in that something was horribly wrong as this room had a putrid smell that was musty and rank, almost like there was a dead animal in the space. We then saw a hollow core door leaning against a wall and a cheap... More
