I was nervous about this one, because we are Marriott people, but it was fine. It's an old school motel, on a large piece of property. The drive into Bar Harbor wasn't bad (but you kind of feel like "outsiders"), as opposed to staying in town. The rooms, are very dark, which I've found to be typical for Best Westerns... More

This best western was clean and nice, but I would also say it's mostly the same as any other decent hotel. What sets this hotel apart from the others is the really excellent hospitality. In the lobby they have popcorn every night (and cookies), and they make an amazing continental breakfast (eggs, waffles- this isn't just cereal and coffee). Plus... More

This B/W hotel is right before the entrance to Acadia National Park. The hotel is spread out like in rows, the rooms are all one level and you park right outside your door. The room itself is not fancy but it serves its purpose, it was neat and clean. Had a safe, microwave and refrigerator. The breakfast building was exceptional.... More

It's a basic motel but as with most Best Western's it's unique in it's own quaint way. People are friendly, room was clean, breakfast large and price is reasonable. Location is great for the park and for the Bar Harbor main street. Would stay again.

This is an old-style motel but it is perfectly clean and run by efficient hosts. The location is convenient to downtown Bar Harbor and you really feel like you are in the middle of Acadia, ready to hike and enjoy nature. The breakfast was outstanding.

Rooms are very basic--this is a true motel not "hotel". Rooms are clean. Right in Bar Harbor so close to restaurants. The picturesque Bar Harbor area is just a few miles from motel. Re-modeled breakfast area is very nice. Breakfast was excellent and staff very friendly. This motel closes in late October for the winter.

Very nice motel. One of the best motel I've ever stay in. We arrived at very late and the front desk staff is very nice and friendly. The room is clean, bedding is comfortable. They provide breakfast in the morning and it's so convenient for us.

For what it was, it was nice. The room was clean and modern, very motel-ish layout. My kids used the pool, which was clean. Their free cookies were delicious - homemade and freshly baked.

Apart from the traffic noise this is a good place to stay, if you are in one of the front rooms you can hear the traffic until about 11:30pm.
