We stayed here to avoid setting up our tent in the rain. I've never stayed in a place so small. But, despite the place looking like a dump, the room was clean and airy and our room backed up to woods. A little noise came from the neighboring mini golf. The doors and windows didn't seem real secure--wouldn't leave anything... More

On the upside, the location being directly across the street from the shuttle stop meant that I could park my car on arrival and not need it again until I left. Parking in Bar Harbor is horrid. Budget friendly at $65 per night = More lobster! :) *Note: $65 is their regular high season price, there is nothing special about... More

The Robbins Motel is not what I expected. I thought I was booking a clean, mom-and-pop roadside motel. I booked 2 rooms online in January, guaranteed with a credit card. I got an email 5 weeks later saying I needed to provide my credit card. I called, and discovered they hadn't checked their email in more than a month, and... More

Do not pay with a debit card!! Dishonest people. Over charged my card and tried calling it a cleaning fee. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere nice. It cost me 400 dollars to stay here two nights. Now I have to fight to get the fraudulent charges removed from my account

Old fashioned roadside motel, staff was very friendly. Room rate very reasonable, however, rooms were very basic. Houskeeping did a wonderful job and the rooms were very clean. Close to the entrance of Acadia National Park and only 4 miles into town.

We stayed 4 nights while visiting Mt. Desert Island, including Bar Harbor and Acadia. It was all we needed since we don't spend much time in our rooms anyway! Housekeepers were fabulous and front desk staff attentive. (Office doesn't open until 8am which is probably our only complaint because that is where the coffee is!) But the area has great... More

We stayed two nights while we visited Acadia and Bar Harbor. I agree with fellow reviewers that it is most likely mobile homes put together, but it is very clean and the beds are comfortable. Since we mostly just went there to sleep, it suited our purposes well. The beds were pretty good-furnishings are spartan, but I can't complain because... More

Robbins Motel is a clean, small establishment. I think the rooms may be renovated mobile homes and the max per room is 2 people. There is no breakfast included. The rooms are near the highway so they are a bit noisy and the heat/air conditioning does not turn on automatically. Overall, it's super reasonable and if you're just looking for... More

I stayed here for three nights during a visit to Acadia. This is a great place to stay for the price. It was small, but the room, bathroom, and bedding were very clean. Air conditioner and wifi worked well. It's just a short drive to a park entrance and Bar Harbor. I would stay here again.
