The room was clean and comfortable. We had a room with two queens and it was facing the road. The owners were friendly, and booked us the night before check in. Did not use pool, only there over night.

We stayed for 2 nights very clean, the man who owned the place was very helpful and friendly. Alas the room was basic for what it was but the king size bed which I believe was new was probably one of the most uncomfortable beds I have ever paid to sleep on. I ended up with terrible lower back ache... More

I stayed at Sunnyside for a few days. It is spotless. The owners are friendly and helpful about what to do in Bar Harbor. Beautiful whispering pines and maples. The pool is nice and sparkly. Great selection of channels on TV, but the wifi is spotty.

Stayed for one night on July 4th weekend on an otherwise sold out weekend , the king bed was comfy, room spotless, free wifi, bbq available, nice veranda, pool, lovely owners. Would definitely stay here again, maybe in a cottage next time. Only thing I would recommend is room darkening curtains, sun lights up the room at 5 am.

The cheerful yellow and gorgeous flowers caught my eye the first time we were in the area so we decided to stay this time. What a wonderful locally-owned motel! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfy and the sheets smelled so fresh. There are several cottages, each with its own unique design. The pool is... More

Needed a place to stay as it was late, I was tired of driving, and the weather was horrible. This maybe the first place you come to when entering the Island (Mont Desert) on your way to Bar Harbor. Maybe 15-20 minutes from the town of Bar Harbor. Very clean room. Very friendly owner, had a few good chats with... More

We spent three nights here and found it perfectly located to take advantage of all the islands attractions. The rooms were exceptionally clean, the management was friendly, helpful and professional. You can get ice if you ask for it but I never saw a machine. There are no drink machines either, so you have to bring your own stock. A... More

There are not enough good things to say about our stay at Sunnyside Cottages. The proprietors were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our cabin, number 9, was well appointed, spotless and comfortable. The bed linens were crisp and clean. The bathroom was meticulous and offered shampoo, soap, hairdryer and fresh linens. The kitchenette was stocked with a two burner stainless steel... More

Stayed here 3 nights in a motel room late Sept. Missed having a coffee maker and microwave especially as cool as it was. There is coffee available in the office when it opens at 7:00 am....BTW the coffee was excellent! Our room had knotty pine paneling and a TINY standup shower. That shower was so small I kept hitting my... More
