“Our favorite place to stay in Bar Harbor!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

We stayed at Cromwell Harbor Motel in early August. It was our fifth visit and we have never been disappointed. The rooms are always clean, comfortable, and spacious for our needs. (We spend a lot of time in Acadia NP.) The location is quiet, the grounds are lovely, and the staff is always very helpful. It is an easy walk to downtown Bar Harbor and quick access to the park. We will return!!

this hotel was very clean, the room was slightly dated with a small bathroom, but we had a really nice upstairs deck, shared with one other room. The pool was really nice & the water was warm. It is a tiny bit out of town, easily walking distance; we walked the shore path to town and the street sidewalk back. I would stay here again. The price was also very reasonable.

I was a bit weary of booking a motel that wasn't as nice as some if the bigger well known hotels in the area, but I booked last minute and choices we're skim and prices were high! The cromwell had the right price and the location was great, we were able to walk into town easily. The rooms were really clean, but the decor was poorly chosen. It's not the ritz, but if you're not looking for anything fancy go here it's worth your money! The only complaint I have was that the maid never came during our 2 night stay, not sure what happened. Other than that I would definitely go back again!

We enjoyed staying at the Cromwell for two nights. Very friendly, helpful staff, affordable, spotless room in a good location. We preferred these smaller, privately owned motels/hotels on our Maine trip and this one was a favorite.

We arrived in our hotel room to find one of the most spotless hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. Plenty of room in the double queen with pullout coach. The receptionist was very friendly at check in and the hotel was a short 15 minute walk from downtown. The grounds were meticulously manicured. This motel was the best priced of any we could find available in a busy summer stay. I highly recommend it!!!

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.
