As good as it gets for a reasonably priced motel. The room was spacious and well kept. It included a refrigerator and a microwave. Distance to Bar Harbor and other area attractions was reasonable. We word definitely stay there again.

This little gem was perfect for our requirements. We booked a last minute trip to the area and needed someplace on a budget that was clean and had a great location. Belle Isle was the exact spot that met that criteria. The hotel was close to down town Bar Harbor as well as being close to the Park. The people... More

There is no getting around it, the room ( one queen bed ) was small. The bathroom was small also but the shower is big enough and there is plenty of hot water and good pressure. I really like the 'cubbies' (similar to what would be in a kindergarten classroom) which gave several places to put things - purse, tablet,... More

The Belle Isle Motel is a clean and cozy place to stay in Bar Harbor. The amenities are terrific and many (coffee maker, refrigerator, hair dryer, television, and sundries available in the office to buy) and I was glad there was a guest laundry on the premises. The machines did our laundry well, and it was a reasonable price to... More

The tiny rooms still have amenities...frig, tv, coffee, iron, hair dryer. The rooms seem to have newer floors and paint and probably a work in progress. Apparently some new beds are forthcoming but for now, this squeaky, lumpy bed was one of the worst that I have encountered. But it is a value nonetheless in this expensive resort town.

This is an excellent location. Just minutes from the entrance to Acadia NP. One part of motel is near the road and a few cars drive by. You can hear these readily from the front part. Request the back if this is important. The gentleman who checked us in was very nice. Rooms were nicer than expected. It's an older... More

We choice this motel because of the price and reviews on Tripadvisor. The reviews were spot on. This motel isn't on the island but is in a good location. The rooms are roomy and have a small fridge and mucrowave. Which came in handy for us. Hint: the rooms that face the road are larger.

As most other reviewers have noted, the rooms are small, but have most of the amenities you might need. We stayed in room 22, in the rear building, which had a refrigerator, Keurig, ironing board and iron. Because we were situated in the rear building, there was really no road noise at all. One thing we appreciated was that the... More

We spent 2 days at this hotel. The hotel is not very fancy but it is clean and good value. The room was very clean. The only thing I did not like were the towels which did not appear to work too well when you tried to dry yourself out. The room had a nice refrigerator and a fancy coffee... More

I spent 2 nights here while touring Acadia NP, and this motel served my needs as a solo traveler very well. It's on the main road to Bar Harbor, but you do want to be a bit careful, as the signage doesn't stand out that much. The location is also more convenient to the park than to Bar Harbor. The...
