“Not good value for the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The hotel is average but popular because there were not many name brand hotels to choose from in this area. We had a small room with a lumpy king bed. Bathroom had shower no bathtub. The only elevator stopped working when we were there. Free breakfast and Wifi. We paid the full retail price for the room since it was the high season for leaf peeping. We may try a mom and pop motel or cottage in the area next time.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear you did not find your bed comfortable. We know how important a good night's rest is while traveling and regret this was not your experience with us. Please forgive our technical difficulty with our elevator, we know this was an inconvenience and we have since fixed the issue. We hope we can have another chance to show you what our warm Hamptonality is all about here at our hotel, if your travel brings you back to the area.

Thank you,
Rick Savageau
Property Manager

Clean. Good breakfast. Nice pool and whirlpool. Enjoyed my stay very much.Friendly staff. Even provide cookies in the late afternoon. Close to Acadia national park. Plan to eat dinner while you are out for the day because there is really no good place for dinner. Consider fast food it's your best bet for dinner.

This was a good clean, relatively inexpensive hotel. We scheduled a last minute vacation at Bar Harbor, and all the good hotels closer to Acadia National Park were taken. The rooms were clean, and the staff accommodating. The hotel is right beside a Walgreen's, and close to a Super Walmart and about 40-60 minutes from the Acadia sites. The LL Bean outlet store is nearby. There were great Lobster places around.
The breakfast was okay, although I think they could have had more variety. There was also only one waffle maker, and the lines could become quite long. There were cookies for the kids in the lobby, which they loved! The pool was clean, and not crowded.

Overall, it is a good alternative hotel, but when we return to Acadia, we will probably book a hotel closer to the park.

Great place. Good location. Very, very clean.
Always know what your going to get when you stay at Hampton Inn. Coffee is very good as always. Great fresh baked cookies in the evening. Beds are comfortable. They look and feels new. Room was very clean answer fresh feeling when you walk in. I'll let you know how the free breakfast is tomorrow.

Recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel with my parents and friends. We reserved 3 king size rooms which were ready upon our arrival at 4:00 PM in the afternoon. The hotel staff was very warm and friendly upon arrival. The hotel grounds are very well manicured and when you step into the lobby its very nicely decorated. They had fresh coffee and baked cookies for guest arrival. Each of our 3 rooms was very clean and comfortable. The pillows are very nice at this hotel as they appear to be queen size versus the normal small standard pillows you find in most hotels.

Each room has a small refrigerator to keep your beverages cold for your visit. The TV is a 32" flat screen. My only complaint was given the size of the room they should either place the TV closer to the bed and sitting chair or put a larger screen TV. Its not easily viewed when laying in bed or sitting in the chair.

The hot breakfast was very nice and great selection of hot foods along with cereal and pastries.

If I travel back to this area I would definately stay at this hotel again.

Super clean property. Carol at the front dest was fantastic! All staff were great. My only complaint is that I couldn't get housekeeping to collect the tips we left them for three days. Best housekeeping staff ever...I mean ever! Seven Stars! Not only were they competent, friendly and efficient they seemed really happy doing their jobs...such a rarity these days. Kudos to this management team...and all...a very well run hotel!
