We did not want to spend a lot on accommodations - we basically wanted a place to sleep and shower. There is so much to do in Bar Harbor, staying at your hotel/cabin is not an option. The facilities are very dated but very clean. Clean beds and a hot shower were on our list and they delivered. Individual cabins... More

This is small hotel just up the road from Acadia. The place is dated with paneling in the rooms and old metal keys for the doors. It has a surprising number of units for the limited space that it occupies, so parking is very limited - 1 car per unit, with assigned spots. Room 26 had a peculiar design with... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to visit Acadia National Park after graduating from College. We were traveling on a budget, so we chose to stay at the Robbins Motel just outside of Bar Harbor (5 miles outside of downtown Bar Harbor, about a 10 minute, straight-shot drive). Robbins Motel was the cheapest place to stay we could find in the... More

From what I can tell, the Robbins Motel is the cheapest lodging option in the area. The rooms are small and dated, but being just a few miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, there is no reasons to spend any time in them anyways. The hot water is hot, the A/C and heater both worked well, and the... More

After opening the door to my room it felt like I went back 25 years in time. Everything was significantly out of date, but I must say... It was clean and for 48$/night after taxes it's hard to complain if you are a budget minded traveller! It met all my basic needs for a reasonable price.

I read the reviews and knew I was getting a very basic room and it was very basic. The problem I had was the allergic reaction to what I could only think was mildew or dust somewhere in the room. I think it was the Air conditioner because I flipped down the front panel to see if they cleaned the... More

We stayed at the Robbins for three nights and it may be my fault for expecting a little more, given the cheap price. The room was basically a queen bed and a bathroom with a sliding door. The room was pretty run down with paneling and rugs in tough shape. The good thing is that we only used the room... More

We book a 3 night stay at the Robbins Motel and based on the reviews we thought we were getting a great deal. Our room is very plain which was fine. We only were sleeping in it. When we arrived we checked in and the staff were very helpful. We opened our room door to this extreme smell of must.... More

My wife & I booked this motel as a back-up plan to camping at Blackwoods in Acadia in case the weather was bad and we're so glad we did! As it turned out, we spent all 5 nights in the motel due to combinations of cold, rain & wind! Our room was very basic, queen bed, bathroom, tv, limited storage... More
