We booked our stay based on reviews we found on tripadvisor and we were so happy we did! The Bucksport Motor Inn was wonderful! It is family owned and operated. We were greeted by Valerie who was extremely helpful with suggestions on dining and places to see. Check in was fast and easy. We were very happy with the service and we hadn't even been to our room yet! When I unlocked the door I felt like I was home. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed, a king, looked so inviting. The bathroom was large and had an awesome shower. The room had a Keurig coffeemaker and a nice variety of coffees and teas. There was a microwave and fridge and a flatscreen TV. What more could anyone want. We were so impressed that we went down and booked the room for a second night. We highly recommend the Bucksport Motor Inn. Be sure to check out the Penobscot Bridge observatory and Fort Knox. The Inn is only about 45 min from Bar Harbor.
