Sea Breeze motel just out side Bar Harbor, Maine. Thanks to other good Tripadvisor reviews we stayed three nights and loved the place. It is a small older style motel, very clean and updated with great ocean views and balconies for those who would like smoking areas. The staff is friendly and very helpful, The pool is clean and well... More

We thought we were going to have a pleasant evening, Advertised at 79.00. Not so. And here it goes: louvre door window had no hand rank to close the window. Bathroom mirror looked like it was purchased during the civil war era, bathroom faucets were filthy. There was a swivel desk chair, must of been thrown in there for a... More

My wife and I were spending the night in Bar Harbor and found a room at the Sea Breeze. We checked in at 3 p.m. and went to our room to find the air conditioner clanking like a lawnmower. I told the manager of our problem and he said it would be looked at in 5 minutes. Two hours later... More

After Hurricane Arthur shortened our stay at Beautiful Blackwoods; we found ourselves seeking refuge from the storm. As Mainers ourselves, we wanted a comfortable, laid back atmosphere, and found exactly that here at the sea breeze! I write this from the sunny balcony, sipping fresh coffee brewed in our room. The tranquility is unmatched for this bustling island, especially at... More

we called and got a room and when we got there we were told we got the penthouse- this was anything but a penthouse. It was a small hallway attached to the back of the office that led you to your room. Then at the top of the stairs was 3 doors- one led to the room, which the room... More

It is not a luxury motel, but if they lowered their prices it would be a great economy motel with a nice view of Hull's cove and Cadillac mountain. Needs a lot of TLC. The furniture seemed like it had been replaced recently and was in great condition. The walls needed a fresh coat of paint and the porch needs... More

Upon opening the door, I knew it would be bad. There's a musty stench emanating from the carpet, which was a yellow shaggy carpet which must have dated from 1972. There were gray stains on the heavy traffic areas of the carpet. I don't think it has been cleaned in 40 years. On the Windows are plain dusty plastic blinds,... More

I was reading through the reviews for this place, great 5 start glowing reports all in a row and then followed by "horrible, horrible, horrible." So I paid attention and noticed there was "suddenly" a whole batch of glowing reviews (from people who only have 1 review) submitted in March when they are closed anyway. I will book elsewhere.

I like old, I like funky, this place could be great...but it's not. It's obvious that the owner has no desire to improve upon or even maintain the property. It's falling apart. Wallpaper in rooms coming loose, bathroom door broken at the bottom, can see sunlight around door jam. But worst of all it stank! As in smelled, mildew that... More

My friends and I had a great time at the Sea Breeze last fall. We plan to go up again this year and we are reserving now for room 202. It has 2 queen beds and 4 of us stayed there last year. We enjoyed coffee overlooking the ocean view each morning. It is very close to the main entrance... More
