We stayed for three nights. The ocean view and peacefulness were wonderful, the bathrooms were impeccable (I never notice things like that, but they were SO clean that I did), the rooms spacious, the general feel relaxed and warm. My family, especially my daughter, loved Speedbump the resident cat. We had never been to the area before and chose this hotel on a whim - compared to the madness of the Bar Harbor area, I far preferred it and would happily stay there again. The hotel is just down the road from two short, neat hikes (Wonderland and the Ship Harbor trails), both of which are magical at low tide as tide pools are aplenty. Southwest Harbor had a number of great restaurants.
Although the hotel is no frills, it is well set up with a common room which included laundry, a microwave and a fridge (as well as tape and markers so that you could label items with your name). The owners and staff were very nice and helpful.
