Needed a quick place to stay on our way through Bar Harbor and most of the places we passed said "No Vacancy". The Sea Breeze Motel had a Vacancy sign up and boy, it is now very apparent why. We checked in and were told that wi-fi was only available in the (locked) lobby and on the front porch. Fine,... More

I booked a room in this hotel for 3 nights. I checked the Google photos by the management and liked the view from the hotel, went ahead and booked it. When I called for information the front desk was really courteous and helpful !! The scene changed completely when i walked into the room we were assigned. They assigned us... More

My husband and I made a last minute travel decision to visit Bar Harbor with our 2 daughters for the 4th of July weekend. Obviously, places to stay in Bar Harbor were limited due to the fact that we booked so late. The pictures on-line make this place look quaint, however we found it to be anything but. Upon arrival,...

We returned to the Sea Breeze this summer and stayed in the penthouse apartment for a week, this time in search of a quiet space to write. I spent many hours a day on the private balcony, gazing out at the gorgeous view of the bay while working on a novel. The penthouse also comes equipped with a full kitchen,... More

I stayed here two nights on a recent New England road trip. I had planned on camping in Acadia NP, but it was pouring rain when I got to the area, so used a coupon from a travel book and stayed here for $20 more per night. The view is nice,and there's ample decking and seating to enjoy it. The... More

I booked 4 nights at this motel since we stayed there several times previously (admittedly it has been several years) but we were very disappointed. Just driving into the property the lack of maintenance is obvious. Lights along the driveway are out, tree limbs are down, very little except mowing has been done. Further investigation during our stay revealed old... More

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
