“Nice place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Our room was clean and very spacious. We got a room in the back on the 2nd floor. It had a balcony with chairs and small table which was nice to sit at in the late afternoon. It is only a short 5 minute walk to downtown Bar Harbor and an easy drive to the Acadia park loop road.

There is a heated pool outside which we used after a day of biking the carriage trails in the park.

If we went to that area again i would stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back building are nice.

The Cromwell Harbor Motel is an ideal location while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
The motel is just on the outskirts of downtown away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It is less then a ten minute walk to shopping and dining of the down town businesses.

The rooms and grounds are extremely clean.

Room Tip: If you are traveling as two couples I would suggest requesting rooms 115 and 116 if they are availab...

This hotel is very clean and quiet. We had a nice stay here and found information provided at the desk very helpful. It is nicely located within a 5-10 minute walk of the main town. The motel itself is older but very well kept. Great place for the price.

You will be very pleased with your stay at this property. It is an easy walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops as well as the Shore Path along the oceanfront. It is very quiet, plenty of parking and ample brochures in the office for any activities. The beds were extremely comfortable and I can't say enough about how clean and well maintained every unit is with a nice size bathroom as well.

We happened upon this sweet place thanks to the lovely staff at the Visitor's center. We were in Bar Harbor for the evening and had a hotel in Bangor. It was a perfect weather weekend so called spur of moment and we got right in. The price was a great value for what we got. It was a spotless and lovely room with a comfy bed far away enough from town to have peace and quiet but a quick walk to the hustle and bustle.
This felt like a home away from home. The pool was an added bonus. Nice warm clean water and towels provided. Outdoor porch seating was another benefit. I am thrilled to see a family business making it and running a wonderful non-chain spot.
I can't wait to come back! A tip: go to Havana for dinner. It's right down the road about 3 mins walk.

We stayed in the Cromwell Harbor Motel for two nights this week and we can't say enough good things about it. The owners have thought of so many details that make a stay comfortable and stress free. We had two rooms as we were with family - one was a two bedroom room and the other was a king room. We especially loved the upstairs king bed room with the private balcony...what a treat! Would highly recommend this motel.

Room Tip: Try for a room upstairs with a private balcony; a very nice touch.

We enjoyed a large room (208) with a king bed. The grounds are well kept. The room was very clean. The staff was responsive to our needs. And the rate was on the low end. What's not to like? It is located just far enough from the center of town to be quiet but close enough to easily walk to the many restaurants, shops and ice cream. We highly recommend this motel if super luxury is not required.
