“has gone downhill since ownership change”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

My husband and I have been staying here twice a year for 10 yrs. We had always loved the location and simplicity of the motel. The property is under new ownership and was our first bad experience. The cleanliness of the rooms or lack of, was such a dissappointment. We are not staying here again unless something changes.

First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback for the Bar Harbor Villager Motel. Second, I would like to address your concerns regarding the cleanliness of your room. Not that it is in any way an excuse, but at the time of your stay, we were extremely understaffed and the housekeepers were quite overwhelmed. Please know that your experience was not the norm at all and, if you read our other reviews, the majority of people were very satisfied with the cleanliness of our rooms. In addition, there are already many big changes for the housekeeping department taking place for next year which will hopefully prevent experiences like the one you had. I do hope you will visit us again, as we will be continuing to upgrade the property and will be adding mini fridges to the rooms in the spring of 2011.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2010

We arrived to Bar Harbor a day early. We called the motel, and the super friendly desk staff said it would be no problem to get our room early. The rooms are a little dated, but were still nicely furnished and clean. Our only complaint was that there was no fridge.
The motel is located right on the main street in town. There are loads of bars, restraunts, and shops within walking distance. Two entrances to Acadia National Park are about a ten minute drive away.

The Villager was everything we hoped for when looking for a place to stay in Bar Harbor. Walkable to everything we wanted to see and just a short drive to Acadia Park.

Ideal for visiting Boston, the ferry brings you right in the center of the town.
There are very nice living rooms for reading a book or for writing what happened trough the day. Nice breakfast.

It' was the second time I stayed at The Villager, the first being in summer. Everything was perfect, right in the middle of Bar Harbor, at walking distance from restaurants, activities. It is clean, confortable and the rooms are spacious.

We spent a few days in Bar Harbor and the Villager is very well located for everything. Pleasant room, big swimming pool which was needed in the 90 degree weather, right in the heart of the town. Desk people are very friendly and helpful Quiet motel that is not fancy but clean and has everything you need.
