Found this via trip advisor - 2 night stay after a visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Kids wanted beach and this motel you can walk to the beach. 2nd floor with very limited ocean view - go up some steps and we had one room with two double beds, television on a low dresser, counter with microwave...

This year we decided to stay the whole week before labor day weekend and totally enjoyed our stay...in fact so much we booked it for two weeks next year. The rooms have a... More

Located beachside, it's a short walk from the pier, but far enough away to not be too loud. The facility has an indoor pool incase you need to get out of the sun or have crumby weather and a small playground. They have a large variety of room options so ask to see others when you arrive if you're not... More

We stayed at the Surf Inn section, a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and a private balcony. Everything was clean, wifi was good. A flat screen TV is also provided in either room with many channels to choose from. Everyone at the motel was very nice and accommodating. It is a few steps from a great beach and... More

The staff was friendly. The room was way over priced. We rented two rooms at the same price and one room had a full size fridge, full size stove and an ac in the bedroom. The other room had a mini fridge that smelled, a stove with 2 burners but only 1 of them worked. No ac in the bedroom.... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay, the issues you told us about at check out were addressed and corrected an hour after you left. Had you told us about them when they were discovered we could have made your stay more comfortable. The Beach Gardens property is an older beach motel. You are paying for the location and the...

The motel was great. The location too the pier is close enough to walk to easily. The beach is steps away from the rooms. We stayed in room 101 which is pool side. The pool was clean as was the jacuzzi tub. There are grills and picnic tables. (We didn't use the grills but good to know that they are... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the 1 bedroom suite we reserved had 4 separate sleeping surfaces---two double beds, a single bed, and a trundle bed. There was also a small kitchenette. The room was clean enough but in need of updating. There was some kind of red stain on the cover of the box spring (on the side,... More
