My Dad and I stayed for three nights while exploring the area. The price was right and the location was great. A few miles to Acadia's entrance and a couple more miles into Bar Harbour. The hotel was clean and quiet and walking distance to two restaurants. The staff is very friendly and helpful with information and maps of the... More

This is a nice, old style motel, very clean and well kept. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had initially reserved a twin double bedroom. They kindly offered to change it to a single king bedroom when we called because we were to get there late. It is within a walking distance to two restaurants and about a five... More

Great motel! The room was clean with newer mattresses and sheets and included a mini fridge. Parking was plentiful and the free wifi was good. Pool was super clean and heated. We stayed in room #3 and it was quiet and close to the pool. Management and staff are super friendly and professional. FYI, motel is family owned so you're... More

We recently stayed at this motel. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it's maintained, how pleasant and friendly the staff were, and how nice the rooms were! We were directly across from the pool, which was great for us. The pool was heated, and had partial shade in the afternoon. There was also a cute playscape in front with... More

up in Bar Harbor for business and traveling on a budget. They offered the best price so my expectations were quite low. Discovered a very clean, bright room with a fridge and I had my own deck with patio furniture. Well maintained grounds and a cute pond outside. Also enjoyed the rather large vending room with comfortable furniture and tables... More

Stayed here for 4 days in queen bed room. This was late planned trip and many places were either too expensive or booked solid. Strange since when driving around BH area we saw nothing but Vacancy signs all over. Checking was quick & pleasant. When making the reservation we asked for a quiet room. Since we had queen bed room... More

We stayed with our two children while we were in Bar Harbor for a baseball tournament and I cannot say enough about how accommodating the staff was. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are spacious enough for the four of us and very clean. Our boys enjoyed the pool which again was super clean. We were very happy... More

We were searching for a room during the peak season in Maine. All of the fancier downtown hotels as well as the brand name hotels were completely booked with really high prices. We checked TripAdvisor and were impressed with the reviews. Pulling up we were impressed with the outside appearance and the obvious level of maintenance. Check-in was quick and... More

Would definitely recommend this motel! The rooms are excellent! Very clean and cozy! Has a great pool. It is in a wonderful location with two restaurants and mini golf course just seconds away. It is minutes from downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Has very reasonable rate as well! My parents have been staying here for years and they... More
