We stayed here for one night as two families of three in two double rooms. The reception desk was very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. This was all we needed for a one night stay. Good value for money and perfect for a good night's rest.

This motel with a few tweaks could really be great. We booked a room with two double beds. After checking in, we went to our room, tired after all the driving and found it had a king. Didn't want to deal with the hassle of changing so we decided to make it work. (Other review indicated same issue, so you... More

The room we had was good size. Our issues started when we turned the sheets down. The bottom sheet did not look like it had been changed , there were fresh stains on the sheets. As it was late, we slept on top of the blankets. The management did 'comp' us for the night. We got back later in the... More

It was confusing from the start. We booked a room with 2 beds, but were given a king bed instead. The front desk was confused of the bed arrangement, saying there should be 2 beds in it. But I appreciated him trying his best, managing to get us one with every room sold out. The next day, the cleaning crew... More

We had a nice large room at this hotel. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. No breakfast was a bit of a disadvantage, but there are restaurants a few minutes away. The hotel is about a half-hour drive from Acadia National Park.

Don't let the outside make you hesitate to stop. Once we were inside the room, we were pleasantly surprised. Clean, new decor and obvious care given to making this a comfortable place to stay. Generous with shampoos, soaps, etc. Pleasant interactions with employees.

Larger room than many newer motels. Nice location. No breakfast to speak of unless you like PopTarts. Office does not open in the morning until 8am - really!? Wifi was pretty good. Loved our trip to Acadia Park about 15 miles away. Walmart Supercenter about a mile or two away from motel.

Being pampered in a luxury hotel is not a necessity for me. A clean room, confortable bed, and a location reasonably accessible to my interests are my priorities. I found all three at the White Birches Motel. It's 18 miles into Bar Harbor. There is good access to Acadia National Park. Traffic was mostly easy, however mid-June is still not... More

Very nice quiet motel. Beyond clean, staff were very friendly. Close to main restaurants and shopping in Ellsworth and 20 min from Bar Harbour and Acadia Park. Rooms were very spacious, fridge and a microwave, no issues. Will definitely return.
