This hotel is a no frills hotel at a reasonable price. The rooms are clean, but quite old. The furniture is from an early age. There is no decoration. There is only soap in the bathrooms, so bring your own products. The bed was very hard. The setting was beautiful.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to review the Harbor View Motel. Yes, we do have a good staff and that's one of the reasons many people come back time and time again. It is an older property, but we are in the process of updating our rooms and cottages. I'm not sure what room you stayed in, but we have a variety of rooms...some more higher end than others. We are not a chain so our rooms vary, and I think we have something for just about everyone. Thanks again for staying and reviewing the Harbor View Motel and we hope you will come back and see some of the upgrades during the next couple years. Sedge Saunders

Stayed here recently. The beds leave a little to be desired (old spring style mattress), but clean, and worth the price. As others have said, it is an older property, but you can tell the owners keep up with maintenance. This is in a great location, and i would stay here in the future. Convenient walking distance to the Upper Deck and what i would consider "downtown" restaurants (Dry Dock Inn and quietside cafe). It is obviously tourist, season so more traffic than usual but not bad. The picture I uploaded is not the best, but the others posted here capture the area well.

Hello, Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at the Harbor View Motel and Cottages. Your description was spot on, especially the description of walking into town and experiencing all the excellent restaurants. Of course our ocean view isn't bad either. We are an older motel as you stated, but we are in the process of updating all our rooms and have already made significant progress. I hope you will come back next year and try a cottage or efficiency if so desired. Thanks again for your review. Sedge Saunders

This is one of our favorite places to stay, 2 years in a row and it's nothing fancy but it is clean and the views are wonderful. The staff is caring and easy going and great to work with. We stayed the last 2 years in the first week of October both times the weather was comfortable with a jacket on.

We have been coming here for years. This is an old-fashioned kind of place, in the best sense! There are several different styles of accommodations, all comfortable if not luxurious. It's an easy walk to the village and to Beal's (for lobster). There are very good hiking trails within a 10-min. car ride, and it's just 20 min. to Bar Harbor.

Stayed at this motel years ago and made a note to return. Motel rooms are very spacious and include a separate parlor area. Views are directly onto the harbor. Good location to explore Acadiaand the “quiet side of Mount Desert Island.” Breakfasts are Spartan, but OK.
