Karen was very helpful and booked us a room when no others were available anywhere else. Cuck was friendly, funny, and an extremely courteous host. His knowledge of the area definitely made our trip even more enjoyable. We loved the retro accommodations and the fine details down to the old fashioned brass key fobs. One of the best continental breakfasts... More

It was a great surprise. The motel is an old fashion motel that from the out side would look a bit "old" but... the rooms are very (I mean very) big, comfortable and very clean. The owners who run the motel are both very friendly and welcoming, they gave us some useful tips on our visit to Acadia park, local... More

Hotels are very pricey in this area, so we read the reviews on Twilite and were not disappointed. The owner who manages the hotel himself is interesting to talk with. They have a nice little gift shop to bring home gifts for family and or friends. It is a rustic hotel. Most of the rooms are close to the road,... More

It may look like just another of the many roadside motels in Maine but this one is better than you might expect. It is extremely well maintained and you can tell that the owners are very proud of their little piece of road side America. They are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very clean and as mentioned previously... More

Very clean and well maintained and updated 1950's vintage motel. It felt homey and a little retro while having the modern conveniences. The owners (a "mom and pop" business) were very warm and helpful. We asked for advice re restaurants and he gave us excellent recommendations and he was right on. The breakfast included a good variety of food. The... More

Let me just say that I did look up reviews of this hotel before deciding to go with it but there really are not too many other choices that are reasonably priced. I was a little concerned that it would be too far away from everything but that turned out not to be a problem at all. In fact I... More

This motel is in quiet area on a fairly large property. Although the facility is older, it is well maintained and very clean. We loved being able to sit on our private patio and enjoy the evening. The breakfast was very good for the advertised continental and the breakfast area was very cozy. The young woman who was working the... More

We spent two nights in this motel, reasonably priced compared to the ones inside Acadia National Park (you could reach the Park in 30-40 minutes from the motel). The motel is located in a quiet area just outside Ellsworth. Staff was very nice and willing to give hints and information. Our room was spacious and clean. Unfortunately the lack of... More

Very large room, has a good WiFi, a fridge with a freezer, TV with kids channels, and everything a traveler needs. Close to Acadia National Park and to Bar harbor. Close to the city center. Just perfect for a family

This property is within an easy drive to Bar Harbor but without the high prices of that tourist area! It is an older property but very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. It meets all your basic needs for a clean, maintained comfortable stay for vacation nights!
