2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Looking for a one night stay in Bar Harbor on Labor Day weekend so that is a problem, many places have a 2 night minimum. Found this motel for $140 which was cheap for the area. Room really tired. Came back from dinner and large group of bikers sitting in lawn chairs under tree, they were old and gentle however, but a surprise none the less. Wish we had paid more for something better. Very close to town and able to walk for dinner and shore walk the next morning so that's the good thing.

We could not get reservations anywhere in town (Bar Harbor), so we chose to stay at the Anchorage Motel. The place has dated decor (wood paneling, etc.), but I must say that our room was spotlessly clean, enough towels and wash cloths, etc. Plenty of ice in the ice machine and ice buckets. We were on the first floor and the air-conditioning, etc. worked perfectly. The bathroom was clean, no sign mold or dirt. We brought extra pillows from home (as recommended by a previous reviewer) and that made our bed and sleep more comfortable. The Motel is in a great location, within walking distance of Cafe This Way (and any other place in town) where we had an excellent breakfast the first morning visiting the area. The motel is recommended for it's price and local.

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor!

We had carpentar ants, called management. We were told there was nothing they could do tonight. The next morning we were told that we made more of a big deal out of this than it was. Tried to get out of second night or some type of compensation nothing was done. Would not recommend this place and it wasnt cheap

The only nice thing I can say about this place is that it is very convenient - just a block or two from the heart of the village. The compliments end there. If you are on a budget, want an in-town location, aren't fussy about cleanliness or comfort, don't mind waking up to the sounds of the guests in the rooms next to and above you, and don't plan to be at the motel much, this may be the place for you. Otherwise, you'd be better off staying slightly outside of town at a cleaner & more comfortable place & taking the shuttle in - or skip the motel altogether & stay at a campground instead.

We booked our stay over the Internet last minute,even though trip advisor ratings where not flattering we where limited due to availibity. The Desk person was pleasant and helpful,he gave us directions to a dinner spot and shopping. The room was dated but clean but we where shocked to have no hot water in the morning,we stayed later and finally the hot water came back long enough to have our showers.

This hotel is basic and clean, just what we wanted. If you're looking at prices in the area you see they are very high. This hotel is inexpensive compared to others in the area. The staff is super nice and helpful. The location is superb. If you want basic, clean, and to save a few bucks this is the perfect motel.

The room was not clean. There was mould on the faucet and on the curtin of the bathroom. Discosting pillow and very dated furniture.
Great location but for the price you can get a much more better place to stay.
I will never come back.
