“Wonderful Bar Harbor Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The Highbrook Hotel was a great place to stay in Bar Harbor. The room was spacious and extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. The owners made you feel at home and were very helpful in planing activities and recommending places to eat. The location was great- a little away from the congestion of town, but close to restaraunts in both directions and Acadia National Park. We would definitely stay there again!

We spent 2 nights at the Highbrook Motel just before it was to close for the winter. Glad we caught them! Our king room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The motel is family owned and operated and they were very helpful. The grab and go breakfast was fine and we enjoyed it both mornings. I especially enjoyed parking right in front of the door. No long walks with luggage. The Highbrook reminds me of the motor lodges we stayed in when I was a kid. Location was great also. I highly recommend this motel.

For us the Highbrook Motel was ideally located - north of the downtown tourist area of Bar Harbor and south of the main visitors' center and entrance to Acadia National Park. (Acadia N.P was our primary reason for going to that area). The motel is owned and operated by a very friendly family who lives on the premises. They were extremely helpful with information on attractions, directions, and nice restaurants.

This is an older style motel where you park right in front of the door to your room (very handy). But it has obviously been upgraded and is very well maintained. Our room was the usual bed room with two queen beds, a combination drawer chest with desk to one side and chair, a table, two comfortable lounge chairs, and a wall mounted flat screen TV above the desk. Behind the bedroom was a dressing area with clothes storage rack, a vanity sink and small refrigerator. Off to the left end and behind that area was a full bathroom with tub shower and another vanity sink. The bathroom had an in-the-wall electric heater that was great for taking the chill out of the room before showering. The maids were also friendly and very efficient - their housekeeping was immaculate.

The free wireless internet service provided was probably the best we had our whole trip. It was fast and we did not have to reestablish a new connection everyday as is the case with AT&T's Wi-Fi at Hampton Inns and the Wi-Fi at Courtyards by Marriott.

A complimentary "light" breakfast is provided daily at the motel office. If we return to Bar Harbor in the future the Highbrook Motel will be our first choice as the place to stay!

This family run motel provides a warm, friendly atmosphere featuring comfortable and very clean rooms. Everything is designed to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The staff's thorough knowledge of the area allows guests to maximize their vacation experience. Most importantly, the motel is centrally located to many of the area's key attractions. The Highbrook will continue to be our home-away-from-home when we vacation in Bar Harbor.

The Highbrook Motel: spacious, nicely decorated rooms, very clean (esp the bathroom); comfortable beds and pillows, very soft blankets; friendly owners - esp Adam. Also, they offered a lobster dinner and seal watch cruise as part of a package deal - so glad we did that - the cruise was amazing! Also, convenient location - we were able to walk from the Highbrook to downtown Bar Harbor.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Highbrook Motel for the weekend of the MDI marathon. We had brought our own food for the day of the marathon and our housekeeper had actually cleaned our oatmeal dishes for us- which we hadn't expected. The staff was super nice, the room was clean and spacious and we had a great time there. The motel is located about a mile outside of downtown. My only complaint was that the price seemed a little high for a motel during the off-season, but it seemed to be comparable to what I saw at other places in the area. I would recommend staying at the Highbrook Motel if you're looking to stay in Bar Harbor!

We had a great stay at the Highbrook Motel. Reminded us of traveling as a child. The room was very clean. The staff were very pleasant. Check-in and check-out quick and efficient. If ever I'm in Bar Harbor again would stay here again.
