From the road the Highbrook Motel appears to be nothing particularly special, just another 60's style motor hotel, which it is. Difference is (and why this property receives so many excellent reviews) the motel is has an extremely high pride of ownership. First impression is "nice, but just a motel", but after looking around one notices how clean everything is, and then the little extras that seem to provide whatever needs one might hope for. The property is near downtown Bar Harbor, although it would be a long walk. The downtown shuttle passes the motel every 15 minutes, so this is not much of a problem. If on a budget or don't prefer to pay the price for an upscale option, this property might be your best choice.
