We were spoiled after enjoying 5 star hotels on business trips. Hence, we were a bit worrisome when friend suggests this place. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this motel. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was firm and comfortable. I also enjoyed the spacious, well-maintained garden, large pool and quiet environment. It has a nice... More

Not too far from town. Everything spotless and smelling wonderful. Comfortable bed, hot water, lovely heated pool, nice people. New carpet and everything painted and in good repair. I think it might be more quite and restful than a hotel in town. I have no complaints and I usually can find something to complain about. Nearby is a good inexpensive... More

We love this place. It gets better all the time. You get a good night's sleep on their comfortable beds. They offer a flat screen tv, a refrigerator, different options for bed size, a table and chairs indoors and we stayed at the main house so we had a chairs outside and I think a table with it, although it...

Expectations were met, hotel was very close to several good restaurants, miniature golf and ice cream - which was great for the kids. Free shuttle to Acadia, or if you decide to drive, the park entrance was about a four minute drive from our door.

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
