I read many glowing reviews about the B&B/Motel and I thought that for the money it was a great option for staying just off Main Street in Bar Harbor.
Its difficult to keep the reviews separate however because I believe the guest that stay in the main house have a much different experience than the guests that stay in the motel.
Nonetheless, our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the Kuerig coffee maker in the room was a nice touch. I guess my favorite part of the room was just having the wicker chairs outside the door to sit in and watch the world go by in the mornings and evenings - although being off of main street, your view is primarily other houses.
Just a few feet away on the corner is sandwich place that sells soft serve ice cream, and of course the heart of Bar Harbor is just a couple of blocks away, so if you can live without a view of the water, or a pool - then this motel (or if you prefer the more expensive B&B section) would probably serve you well.
WiFi is good and TV has many channels -but you're in Bar Harbor and shouldn't care about those things.
One last thing - I wouldn't say the walls in the motel section are soundproof. If you particular about that sort of thing, you may not like it
