We stayed at the Twilite from July 11th to the 18th, '12. I completely agree with each of the other three reviews. We chose this over any properties in or closer to Bar Harbor because it seemed like such a good value; and it definitely exceeded our expectations. It is close enough to Acadia National Park to be convenient for... More

we were guest at the Twiilite mon and tues 7-30 and 7-31-12. This is a very nice and clean motel with a good breakfast selection and after visiting Bar Harbor, I was so glad we stayed in Ellsworth rather than Bar harbor as Bar Harbor is so congested and so touristy. We liked the country approach of the motel yet... More

Spent two nights on a trip with my daughter. Very nice and comfortable establishment--good value and quite a breakfast selection. Ellsworth is a lovely town with nice shops and restaurants. and is conveniently located for trips to Bar Harbor, Acadia, Schoodic. Owners are pleasant and helpful--note pad in room states that they are "proud to be a Mom and Pop... More

I stayed here because of the tripadvisor reviews. I was certainly not disappointed. It does not look like much from the outside but the rooms are clean and large and the breakfast in the morning was good. This is a good place to stay if visiting the Acadia National Park. Andrew

Very clean, well kept hotel right on Rt. 1. Friendly owners, with knowledge of area. Complimentary breakfast is right start to the day. Location is away from the bustle of Bar Harbor, but perfect for trips to Schoodic peninsula, and Belfast, and only 25 minutes from Mt. Desert Island. I had no problem with the wifi once we obtained the... More

From the outside, this motel doesn't jump out at you... but we had a wonderful stay there! The rooms were very clean and surprisingly modern on the inside. The owners were helpful and friendly... very accessible for questions/etc. They do a simple breakfast in the morning that was a wonderful treat to not have to worry about going out for... More

This a very clean place to stay with family/children (does not look so from outside). But the interior looks really clean and relatively new. Rooms are big; things look clean; children's play area is good; breakfast is good; owners are very nice and cooperative. Wifi is lousy (it did not work at all during my one night stay). If you...

We have been going to the Twilite Motel yearly for over a decade now. Each time, it is like coming home to friends. The owners, Chuck and Ariela, couldn't be more accommodating. The rooms are spotless, private, have all the amenities, and are very reasonably priced. This includes a very nice continental breakfast. We are very happy to give the... More
