Pet friendly and clean; we really enjoyed our stay there. Very friendly people. Would definitely recommend this motel.About 6 miles from town. Quiet at night. Great if you have kids too. Lots of room to play. Very clean too.

We chose Belle Isle for the price and also so our daughter could experience an old style motel before they are all gone. Belle Isle offers travelers a lower price option near Acadia & Bar Harbor. The motel is right on the main road but we were not bothered by noise between 11 pm & 6 am. Our room (#10)... More

This motel reminds me of the places my parents would find when traveling. Of course we never made an advance reservation, we just drove until Dad got tired and pulled off the highway and found a motel. If you are looking for reasonable priced clean comfortable motel with a friendly staff, you have found it. Rooms are small but well... More

This is an older property that is very well mainained. As noted the rooms are small (they tell you that when you're booking), but clean and comfortble. We were looking for a place to sleep over a 4-day weekend and this fit the bill. Close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Two firepits both lit every night, gave us a feel... More

Very well maintained property. Stuff is doing good job keeping the property well. Nothing fancy but functional. Room with AC, desk, TV, and refrigerator. Shower, toilet, and lavatory aren't large but clean and up to date. Accurate housekeeping. Toiletries are replenished daily, bed made, and room cleaned. WIFI actually works and works good. I watched netfix! Pool is recently refurbished,... More

We were quite pleased with this little place. Rooms are small, but that is to be understood. It's close enough to everything and has been a good home base for our first trips to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Next time we might look closer to town. For the price, this was a great option.

Basic but clean accommodations. VERY small space, even for two people. We rented two rooms as we had two grown children with us, and they found the space to be close quarters. However, it served our purposes. We just needed a place to shower and sleep while we were visiting Acadia / Bar Harbor over the 4th of July. The... More

If you need a clean, friendly, basic place to stay when visiting Acadia National Park, this is a great choice. It was fun to stay at an old-school motel that was laid-back. The kids were disappointed that the pool heater was broken, but there were others outside enjoying the fire pit and grill.

EXTREMELY clean, wonderful A/C, beds were comfortable, bathroom has great water pressure, Keurig in room is great and you can get coffee at the main office as you please! Staff was... More

Loved the area, decent motel, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool, fire pit and hammock, keurig in the room which is awesome. King bed was totally uncomfortable, hard as a rock. Would definitely stay here again. Would just need to bring an egg crate mattress topper.
