Twilite Inn is a small motel just before you get to Ellsworth. The rooms are clean, though somewhat lacking in adequate lighting. Breakfast is fairly basic (coffee, danish, cereal, fruit). All in all, a good stop along the way of US Rte. 1.

From the moment we got there until we left, excellent hospitality. Room was very clean, plenty of towels, bed was comfortable, air conditioner worked well. The only issue would be the bathroom sink was squeaky when you turned the hot or cold knobs. Very minor but that's the only complaint I could muster. We all agreed we would come here... More

Chuck was very friendly and courteous. Room was clean and spacious but the bathroom was small and congested. Something seems to be wrong with the water quality. Location was good. Breakfast was average.

I actually slept 2 nights at the Twilite... The hosts are very welcoming, and honest and very helpful people. The rooms are simple but very clean, you have all you need, and the motel is very well located, in a quiet area. Again the included breakfast is very simple, but it's included and you can get coffee at the reception... More

I was excited to stumble across the Twilite Motel after reading all the other positive reviews which I agree with completely. It's conveniently located about a 20 minutes drive from Acadia National Park and 3 minutes away from the heart of Ellsworth. It was a great value even in peak summer tourist season. The rooms were quiet. Wifi, cable TV,... More

This little hole in the wall is old school. Straight out of the 50s, a quiet secluded motel on a main road. Clean and served our inexpensive road trip well. Not far from Bar Harbor and Acadia national park. Could use a makeover and breakfast was limited.

Clean, casual, friendly place with 1950's ambiance. Rooms were large. Spacious grounds, just a mile up the steep hill from downtown. Owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Front deck at each unit. Very nice breakfast offerings and a sunny patio. Would stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again when in the area. Room was very clean and maintained very well. Continental breakfast was wonderful and enjoyed the company of other travelers. The location of the motel was very good to see the local attractions. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeableabout restaurants etc. in the area

We stayed here one night while visiting Acadia National Park and I was very pleasantly surprised by this motel. The price was very low compared to the other lodging near Acadia so I was not expecting much. Our room was exceptionally clean which is extremely important to me. The motel does have a retro feel and is somewhat outdated, but... More
