This motel is an old establishment but it is a family run business and the care and attention the family pays to their livelihood is quite apparent. The property is well maintained and the staff was always responsive to any request.

The motel is quite old but we appreciate it is a family run business and upgrades are in the works. The room is very small, but the beds were okay. The toilet did not flush well and was plugged by morning. We did not use the shower as afraid the sewer would back up. The price is right, but be... More

We had reserved a room with one queen-sized bed motel room. The room was extremely small, not much larger than the bed, but it was clean and comfortable. The price paid was very good for the location of only being 10 minutes from the Bar Harbor waterfront area. There was a campfire in the evenings the two nights we were... More

Wonderful older motel. Clean & they are doing more updates. The rooms are small but adequate for spending time in the room just to sleep. They offer a group camp fire in the evening that we really enjoyed. Tom the maintenance man was the host of the campfire & was very friendly & informative. We enjoyed meeting people from around...

My son and I stayed here for two nights during Columbus Day weekend. I met the owner when I checked in and he gave me a lot of good advice/recommendations. He was very friendly - this is a family business. Yes, it's an older hotel, but the price is still a bargain. It's very clean- the most important thing to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The mattress was too firm and there's a lot about the room that feels "motel cheap" (including the mattress), but in other ways I could see how the owners added extra touches, like the coffee machine and the toiletries. It's a small room,... More

Belle Isle was conveniently close to Acadia Park, which was our ultimate reason for going there. The room was quite small, but clean. The owners were nice and accommodating. They even had a bonfire in the evening, which we did not go to, but could see it from the parking lot. There was a problem with a duplicate charge, but... More

If you're looking not to spend a fortune and have a clean cute room, this is the perfect motel. I checked reviews for this little motel and they were excellent. I have to agree 100%. It was convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

I made a booking here, cancelled in July, received notification that it was acknowledged as Cancelled, by Expedia. My bank alerted me to two transactions by the motel several days after I would have been staying there in late September. Expedia acknowledged the Cancellation, tried several times to contact the motel, sent emails, phoned. Nothing. The motel blamed Expedia. The... More

belleislemotel, Owner at Belle Isle Motel, responded to this review

I am sorry that this person feels like they were wronged in this situation, but that is the farthest thing from the truth. I called Expedia the same day that this was brought to my attention. They told me on the phone that the guest never did cancel the reservation and that the only reason it was cancelled was because... More

This motel is just 7 miles from Acadia National Park. It is far enough from Bar Harbor that the rates are less expensive. The rooms are very small and old but clean and adequate. There is a refrigerator and a coffee maker. The management is very friendly and hospitable. There is no breakfast.
