Nice, clean, they actually serve the breakfast part of B&B. Owner's are pleasant, helpful and informative. It's an easy drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. We've seen a few mediocre reviews and find it hard to believe they stayed at the same place. For travelers on a budget this can't be beat.

This is a mom and pop place with charm. The owner was super nice and made us feel very welcome. He was also very helpful with tips for our trip up the coast of Maine. With his suggestions we saw places that the normal tourist may not see! We want to go back just to see more of the places... More

My husband and I stayed at the Twilite for 5 nights last week to visit family in Trenton, for vacation, and sight-seeing. Our queen room was very roomy and clean, everything was in good working order, nothing fancy but adequate and economical when you just need a clean bed and bath and place to sleep. The owners are friendly and... More

Motel was cheap. Our room had the worst mattress I have ever slept on. It was horrible. I would not recommend this motel. Room was average clean. Window A/C was noise. Weak WiFi. People at desk were nice but the room was very bad.

It was clean , convenient for going other places. Wished the owners were a little friendlier , and that the lawn had been cut. We enjoyed sitting out reading in the afternoon . I even weeded one of the flower beds. Otherwise, nice place to stay. Good for families

Your basic 50's motel, back to basics. We had two rooms, one was musty smelling ( might be because of the early season). The other had a water leak that soaked the entire carpet. We were given the deluxe king rooms, not sure how much smaller the regular rooms could be. The good part was the owners, very helpful and... More

Thanks for writing a kind review about the owners however I would like to point out that the guest did not stay in a king room. Also that one of the pipes under the sink in his room got loose and water trickled for two days before the guest notified us of the problem that was immediately taken care of.... More

We have stayed here previously. It is easy to get to Bar Harbor and Acadia from here and not pay the prices that Bar Harbor demands. However the bed was uncomfortable and really does need a new mattress Room was generally clean and overall it is quiet except an occasional truck on the main road. Missed out on the breakfast....

Great place to stay for our visit to Acadia National Park. Even though I screwed up making the reservation (only input two adults, forgot the kids), the owner was accommodating. I'm sure I screwed up his plans/operating procedures, but he just got us two more towels and took me to the room. Very family feel to the motel and lots... More

This hotel is a nice place to stop on route to Acadia National park. The very friendly and knowledgeable owner gave us some highlights in the area as well as some pointers on our route to come. Yes, we used the Kancamagus highway once we reached the White Mountains and it was indeed a road worth taking. Rooms are a... More
